iButtons for iPhone and iPad is a free application that works as a soundboard. iButtons stands for instant buttons. It has tons of small sound clips to play and share. It is best put to use in a particular situation which requires a special sound effect. The application has many options to choose from including the famous dialogues from plays, TV shows and movies.
The application has many advertisement banners which can be annoying at times. The downside is that even if you want to remove them by buying the application, there is no option to do so.
Features of iButtons:
First of all I’d like to say that it is nothing more than a simple sound playing application. So, as expected, the interface is pretty simple. There are buttons of different colours and names. You tap them and you get a sound. Simple. Tapping on a button will start the sound and tapping it again will stop it. If you like a particular sound or use it frequently, you can add it to favorites category. This feature is particularly handy as the number of sounds the app has is very large and there is no point scrolling down to your required sound every single time.
You can also make use of search bar if you remember the sound you are looking for, by name. When you long press a particular button, a menu pops up. There are many options in that menu. You can also put a particular sound on repeat if you want to. If you feel that a particular type of sound is unsafe for your children or you don’t like it, you can simply hide that sound.
Hidden sounds can be seen after pressing the ‘show hidden sounds’ button. You can also change the colour of the sound button of a particular sound. If you are feeling too bored, there is an option of playing random sound. You can also add your own sounds to the soundboard and delete some sounds according to your will. Sounds can also be sent to someone via Facebook, SMS etc. If you don’t like the name given to a particular sound, there is an option to rename it as well.
iButtons is a fun app to use. You can take advantage of many sounds in particular scenarios to create humor. There are sounds like ‘Aww’, Whip sound, Soft kitty song from Big Bang Theory, the famous Sheldon’s Bazinga, Godfather theme and many others.
