Fans of the Swedish four now have the very first ABBA application for the iPhone. I might not be the one who sings Mamma Mia – not even in the bathroom when I am taking a shower, but I know many who still enjoy singing such ABBA songs as The Winner Takes It All or Dancing Queen or one of their other well-known hit songs.
The application is inspired by PlayStation’s ‘SingStar’ and Xbox’s ‘Lips’ so the developers, ‘Singbox‘ are trying to bring that same experience to your hand-held device. Now it all depends on what you are looking for.
There are two modes in which you can choose to play the songs: Amateur mode, which puts your timing skills to the test, and Pro mode that requires a combination of excellent pitch accuracy and great timing.
Maybe they were thinking about having a worldwide ABBA singing competition when they introduced the possibility of publishing the results of your singing abilities on your Facebook wall, on the official ABBA site, as well as on the ABBA Facebook group.
The application comes with one song already installed: Dancing Queen. But if you think that you can get a better score with another song, then you can purchase one of three other songs: The Winner Takes It All, Mamma Mia and Gimme, Gimme, Gimme (A Man After Midnight).
The application is available in the App Store for £1.79 and the additional songs can be purchased for £1.19 each.
