Welcome to App Talk – an experiment that I am trying during June. I’ll be releasing a podcast episode every day throughout the month, and each podcast will contain a review of one of my favourite apps.
App Name: Disney Karaoke: Frozen
Platform and Price: iOS (iPad only) £5.49
App overview: This app does what it says on the tin – it’s karaoke versions of the 9 main songs from Frozen. You can watch the videos of each song with lyrics on screen and a little bouncing snowflake that highlights each word in time. You can switch the original vocals off and on as required, and can also record yourself singing along. These recordings can even be exported to iTunes to share with family and friends.
What we like about it: We are huge Frozen fans (you can read my review here) and we love singing along with the songs. The geekdaughter has already recorded herself a lot! It’s produced with the usual Disney attention to detail and quality, and is easy to navigate and use.
What could be better: The price is on the high side. I justified the purchase by comparing it to the cost of the soundtrack album, but I still think £5.49 is expensive for this kind of app and I’d rather see it at the £3-£4 level. That said, I’m pretty sure we’ll get our money’s worth out of it!
What parents need to know: The app will require access to the iPad microphone for recording purposes. There is a dedicated grown up area within the app which you have to enter your date of birth to access. This area contains external links to Disney’s social media sites and other Disney Frozen products on the App Store. There are no adverts or in-app purchases.
Our Verdict: We love it!
