The Cydia Store is a cauldron of weird and wonderful tweaks, apps and themes all designed to make the iOS experience just that little bit more enjoyable. While plenty profess to enhance the software’s rather lackluster functionality, others are simply there to make iOS a bit more fun to use, and VoiceChanger, a new tweak that allows you to alter your own voice when in-call, perhaps falls under this category. With a lot of well-known character voices to choose from, you can fool your friends into thinking they are conversing with a Smurf, Dark Lord, or even Rumpelstiltskin, and if that isn’t your idea of a good joke, then, well.. you don’t have a sense of humor!
The App Store features plenty of apps allowing you to change the sound of your voice into just about whatever you like, but where VoiceChanger is interesting is in the fact that it offers the ability to process audio as you speak. This means you can be in-call and talking to one of your friends or family members, and the app will relay whatever you say in one of a number of different voices.
Those looking to enjoy the tweak will need to be rocking an iPhone 4/4s/5, since it doesn’t work with the iPhone 3GS or older, and it also requires iOS 5 or higher in order to work its voice-morphing magic.
At $2.99, it’s quite pricey for a tweak that is only to be used for fun (we wouldn’t recommend calling anybody important and offering them your best Smurf impression), but nevertheless, is still a lot of fun.
We tried it out for ourselves here at Redmond Pie, and it actually works a lot better than we’d initially thought. With more voices to be added by the developer in the future, it has the potential to be even better, so if you want to get involved, it’s available to purchase right now from the BigBoss repository.
If you’re a fan of prank calls, and more so if you know somebody who isn’t, we’d highly recommend giving this tweak a try, and if you happen to do so, be sure to leave your thoughts and comments below!
