One of the new iPhone apps that was demoed at the iPhoneLaunchParty (http://iphonelaunchparty.com) last night was bChamp by Monodomo (http://monodomo.com/). bChamp is a beat-boxing application that allows you to use your iPhone as a beat-boxing device. It's hard to describe so we'll start with this developer video that shows you the basics:

The pitch of the sounds can also be changed by moving your finger on the screen. Steve Wozniak was at the iPhone Launch Party and tried his hand at bChamp:

bChamp is available in the App Store for $0.99.

At first I was very skeptical and thought 'what a waste of time' and 'why in the heck is this on the homepage of MacRumors,' but upon watching the first Youtube video, I thought 'that's actually pretty cool ... for someone that knows what they are doing.' I just hope nobody gets in a car accident and gets killed because of this.

It does look like an interesting app...

BUT i think Mr. Wozniak is the real news here... Did anyone notice how uncomfortable he looked? "Oh, this is so fun" he said. LIES!!!

While it may be fun, I don't think Mr. Wozniak will be using it too much. LOL

Its a pile of c**p for me if someone asking. Strangely enough, however, it will find use amongs folks like in here (http://www.Break.com/index/cute-girl-has-amazing-beat-box-skills.html).

Ps. Yeap...she knows how to move her mouths ;)

It is. I bought this app last night and it's tough.

I bet he Jailbreaks. It is in his nature.
I also agree he won't be running that app again.

Wozniak isn't one of the leaders of Apple. You certainly will not ever see Jobs doing this.

Erm. Isn't the whole point of beatboxing to do it all with your voice...

Hey, now I can beatbox without having to... beatbox.

I was so pumped for this app but it seems you have to be a beat-boxer to get it to work. Random sounds that make no sense. I think the dev could make some cool clicks and assumed that everyone could make them. Looks like an app that the dev made for himself.:mad:
