The end result is a creator and listening experience unlike any other music or audio application out there.

SoundCloud, the leading social sound platform, announced today it has released its first free native Apple iPad® application, designed for people to create, record, promote and share their original sounds in seconds from the device.

SoundCloud applies its creator-centric approach to allow users to capture and share the sounds of their lives from the hustle of cities, nature, interviews, news, thoughts, family histories, to recording original music. While maximizing native iPad capabilities like multi-touch and page swiping, SoundCloud’s app takes full advantage of the iPad interface to allow users to touch the newly designed waveform of the sound captured, allowing for a more social experience, which also includes more space for scrolling comments. In addition, users can now record private messages and send them directly to other people on SoundCloud.

“SoundCloud’s new iPad application allows people to discover SoundCloud in an exciting new way. It takes full advantage of the functionality of the iPad, enticing people to capture and share sounds in a more social context than they might expect,” said Alexander Ljung, founder and CEO of SoundCloud. “The end result is a creator and listening experience unlike any other music or audio application out there.”

Key features include:
●    More intuitive: Flowing screens to help navigate and discover sounds more easily along with simplified ‘stream’ and ‘activity’ tabs.
●    More waveform: More space to interact with the newly designed waveform allowing users to add comments directly to the waveform and see them scroll as a sound plays.
●    More social: Easier to ‘find & follow’ people and now record dedicated private messages to someone with a single tap.
●    More visual: Larger profile images throughout the app.

The iPad app release comes at the same time as refreshes to iOS, Android and, demonstrating the company’s commitment to mobile as a key component of its dominant cloud-based sound platform.
