[prMac.com] San Rafael, California - Tired of all your friends updating Facebook with details of what they had for dinner or where they ate it? How much lamer can FarmVille get? The Riff Raters app puts the fun back in social media. The new Riff Raters iPad app reinvents the Facebook experience, elevating it from the inane to the insane. Along the way, it transforms the iPad, iPhone or iPod touch into an instant recording studio - with an endless number of listeners at your fingertips.
Riff Raters is a must-have, music social-networking app that lasted on Apple's "What's Hot" list for two weeks in December. The 99 cents Riff Raters app, with thousands already sold, is for musicians, aspiring musicians or for those who enjoy music and don't know the difference between a guitar's C-chord and Vitamin C.
With a press of a button, your just-recorded riffs instantly reverberate across social media platforms. Fellow riffers rate and comment on your riffs. The Riff Raters community has access to your Riff Raters' profile, which includes links to your personal websites and your profiles on Facebook, MySpace and Twitter.
Like the iPhone and iPod touch version, Riff Raters on the iPad allows you to record 20-second musical riffs or, as we say, "musical tweets." Upload them to the app's ever-growing and searchable database. What's more, upload your recorded riffs - even if it's your dog trying to bark the latest Eminem song - to your Facebook account or fan page. That should give your Facebook friends something to croon over.
The app has a Top 25 chart. Chart toppers win $10 iTunes gift cards weekly. Follow Riff Raters on Twitter or head to our Facebook fan page.
