Feeling Plucky
You don't need an ukulele to channel Jake Shimabukuro; just download Futulele, an app that transforms your iPad into a digital ukulele. Run your fingers over the screen to strum and use the preset chords (or program in your own) to change your tune. Futulele can also record your performance and play songs if you're too lazy to strum your own.
Where: Click here to download the app off iTunes.
Details: $2.99, available now.
