The newly launched iPhone 4S has better audio quality and louder speakers than the iPhone 4, which was a much needed improvement. The iPhone 4 speaker isn’t loud compared to other phones in the market and that is not a good thing. It’s only obvious that you’ll now try to look for ways to make your iPhone 4 sound as loud as the iPhone 4S. Well, there’s an App for that.
MyTunes is a free iOS app that works best with the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and 3rd/4th gen iPod Touch and helps make your music sound better. If you thought that this app could change the overall sound quality and volume of your device, you are mistaken. And, since this an app that’s still under development, don’t be alarmed when it suddenly crashes, lags or doesn’t open at all. I’ve experienced few bugs myself, but the overall experience certainly makes this app worth the download.
There’s something else that’ll make you want to download this app, it’s developed by SRS Labs. I’m pretty sure you’ve heard of them, the guys who brought us the SRS WOW audio enhancer for Windows. They already have a hardware audio dongle for the iPhone and iPod Touch that enhances and increases the volume of your device. But, this is another achievement for the team as it’s one of the very first audio enhancer app for the iPhone that actually does improve sound quality and is pretty close to the hardware dongle. Check out some screenshots from the app below;
The built in Equalizer works quite well and delivers good quality music to your ears. You can select various presets or create your own custom ones.
The Player looks like this, I know it’s not the best looking, but it does the job. You can select the SRS button to get access to other settings like turning on the WOW effect, Equalizer, Normalize Audio etc. To get access to all the settings and features, you’ll have to make an in-app purchase of $4.99. But, you can test all the features for ten minutes before you make the purchase.
This app doesn’t let you play videos, only regular MP3 or AAC tracks will work properly. Also, this app isn’t intended for iPhone 3G or iPad, though an iPad specific app is under development. You can try this app for free and let us know how it worked for you.
