Dragontape, which lets users create ‘mixtapes’ of their favorite YouTube videos and SoundCloud recordings, has landed on Apple’s iPad, a device which benefits the service’s realtime editing functionality.
As other video editing or remix style apps on the iPad have shown, a large touch screen device and accompanying OS has the potential to make the cutting, editing and rearranging of clips that bit more fluid with a tactile drag ‘n’ drop user experience. The same features that the browser-based version of Dragontape supports are also present and correct, such as the ability to share finished ‘mix tapes’ via Facebook and Twitter.
A word of warning though. The Dragontape iPad app maybe free for now but it won’t be forever, says the company. In fact, it’s hinted at premium features for some time.
Founded by Tamas and Peter Szakál – a.k.a. the Szakál brothers – Dragontape is based in Budapest, Hungary, and is funded via a small amount of seed money from individual investors.
