Jimmy Fallon Billy – Joel Doo Wop ignites Loopy HD app sales in the app store!
The Tonight Show performance was hot to say the least as Fallon and Joel sang a Doo Wop version of “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” from the Lion King movie by Disney and used the Loopy HD app to allow them to actually sing 3 parts each!
Fallon proved that he has some pretty good vocals and they also showcased the app’s ability to “create music by layering looped recordings of singing, beatboxing, or playing an instrument”. Prior to the app’s debut on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show, the Loopy app hovered around 200 in the app store. During and after the show, the app skyrocketed as high as number one in paid app’s. As of this writing, it’s currently the #3 iPad paid app and #21 for the iPhone. The Australian inventor of the app tweeted “Woo! Thank you, TV!” Even Apple’s Tim Cook tweeted the video as he called it “magical.”
Even though Fallon called the app “looper” instead of “Loopy” , I thought he and Joel did a great job of highlighting some of the apps great features while providing some outstanding entertainment for us viewers! Take a look at the video and let me know what you think in the comments section.
By the way if you’re interested, Loopy HD retails for $7.99 and it’s available in the app store.
