iSing is a worldwide talent show for iPhone and iPod touch users where everyone becomes a judge, a juror and can stake a place in the singing game.
Created by Island Labs, iSing lets anyone with an iPhone or iPod touch record a 30-second song audition, publish it, then watch their recording climb the charts as others vote for and against it in the global search for a star – kind of like the X Factor without any sight of still-pressed denim (a la Si Cowell)…
“iSing is karaoke meets talent show meets social networking,” says Morgan Slain, CEO of Island Labs. “We are very excited about providing a fun, lively venue on the mobile web for people to sing, share and compete for fame on the iSing talent show.”
Upon launching iSing, users are presented with a list of song entries by iSing contestants. To listen to an entry, they simply tap on the thumbnail picture of the contestant, and use “thumbs up” and “thumbs down” buttons to vote.
Competing in iSing is very simple: contestants can record a 30-second audition, review and re-record the song prior to submitting it to Island Labs for review.
Users can also find entries by searching for the latest, best and worst of the current month, best and worst of all-time, or by location, which will present all the entries from a particular city. They can also search for specific friends and build their own network of contestants.
