Combine crazy and professional vocal effects to tease, entertain and fool your friends with a host of sounds designed just for them
LOS ANGELES, CALIF. (August 18, 2010) – Mobile entertainment innovator gridMOB announced the creation of a new app genre today with Funny Call ( http://gridmob.com/funnycall and http://itunes.com/apps/gridmob/ funnycall ) . This first-of-its-kind, voice-changing voip app artfully modulates your voice into pitch-bending, character-impersonating, song-belting sounds to imprint your personality on that “perfect” live conversation.
Funny Call is an especially appropriate app for kids and phone pranksters of all ages. It skillfully utilizes professional aural effects including pitch-correction, lowered pitch, rhythmic loops, distortion, reverb and echo chamber. These, along with choice pop culture characters such as chipmunk and cyborg and popular hip-hop effects allow you to compose a truly unique way to re-connect with friends and family.
“What everyone expected was possible on the iPhone has not been available until Funny Call,” said gridMOB founder, Les Borsai. “I think this app will be especially fun for kids. Parents will be happy to know that actual phone numbers will appear during these calls so it’s completely safe. Funny Call is really a vehicle for them to explore new and hilarious ways of communicating with their friends.”
