Taylor Swift iPhone App on the Way

The lovely Taylor Swift gets plenty of criticism for her perceived inability to sing and claims that her voice is the work of studio trickery. That isn't stopping the Taylor Swift iPhone app, Mix Me In2 Taylor Swift, which has a bit of an X-rated name, from surfacing. The app allows fans to lead Swift's bands in renditions of her songs. The $3 app is pre-loaded with two songs, "Love Story" and "You Belong With Me." You are able to silence Swift's voice and record your own voice on top of the band. It also breaks the songs down into its instruments, so you can play guitar with Swift, if you'd like.
The app will be unveiled by Swift at her 13 hour meet and greet fans in Nashville this Sunday. The official launch date is set for June 20, with more songs being made available then.
The app breaks the songs down into separate instrument tracks, too. So, with the right cable, you can accompany Swift on guitar if you'd prefer. More Swift songs will become available. Word is you can even upload your versions to Swift's website, so you dogs will bark and ears will bleed.
"I love playing music, and I love creating music," Taylor said. "And, as somebody who is also a big music fan, I always love finding acoustic versions of my favorite songs. I think Mix Me In2 will be a great way for fans to have fun interacting with my music and to listen to new versions of my songs!"
In addition to the chart-topping original recording, each song in Mix Me In2 Taylor Swift comes with 5 heretofore never-released versions: rock, acoustic, urban, piano, and coffee house.
