David SoundCloud for iPad

Our aim at SoundCloud is to provide you with a way to create and share sounds across platforms. In previous episodes, we brought you SoundCloud for iPhone, for Mac and for Android and your feedback for all three apps has been tremendous.

There’s one particular iOS app you all have been asking and patiently waiting for. Everyday, we read your tweets, comments and messages asking us when we’ll be releasing an official iPad app. They say that ‘good things happen to those who wait’ so today, we’re super excited to tell you to it has finally arrived: SoundCloud for iPad. It’s gorgeous.

The iPad is a revolutionary device that has changed the way we interact with content of all types. Our amazing iOS and design teams have created a fantastic app to reflect this, enabling you to interact with the sounds shared with you in a very intuitive way.

Aside from the iOS features you know by now, some of the highlights of the iPad app 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 you 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.
