“Staraoke” The new kid’s sing-along karaoke game hits the app store!

staraokeEvery now and then a really cool mic-enabled app comes along that we feel we people should know about. In this case the app is called Staraoke, and if you are a parent of a child who loves to sing (or would like to start) then Staraoke should be on your list of downloads for your iPhone or iPad.

Staraoke is a unique and non-violent iPhone/iPad-game that combines three things kids love: singing, games and friends! Staraoke was originally a Karaoke PC game that became a hit television show. It is available now in both iPhone and iPad versions.

Initially Staraoke comes pre-loaded with 3 traditional German kids songs: Itsy Bitsy Spider, Brother John and Old MacDonald. (More songs will come soon in future free upgrades.)

Targeted at elementary school age children Staraoke lets children control a cartoon character on their screen by singing along to various songs. The software recognizes the singer’s pitch and keeps the character on the path unless you sing off key. Children will quickly develop their singing ability to win as many points as possible. “Children love computer games and singing. Staraoke combines these things and you can even learn to sing with the game, says Antti Seppänen, CEO of Intervisio.

Check out the gameplay:

Need an iPad Microphone? Top 4 Reasons for an External iPad Mic.

The iPad’s integrated mic may not be optimal or convenient for several iPad microphone uses.

Here are the top 4 cases when an external TouchMic iPad mic would come in handy:

1. Using VoIP telephony apps such as Skype & Line2
Yes, you can use your iPad mic and on-board speaker for placing phone calls over the Internet with your iPad, but it isn’t optimal. If you don’t want others in the vicinity to hear your conversation or if you are in a loud environment, you may want to consider investing in a good headset with integrated mic, or a TouchMic Lapel Mic and Adapter,  Both serve as great iPad Microphones for VoIP apps.

2. Recording a telephone conversation or conference call with your iPad
Our Telephone Conversation Recording Microphone will allow you to use your iPad to record important telephone  conversations and conference calls you conduct over your regular cell phone or any land line phone.

3. Outdoor interviews or recordings
If you find yourself recording in windy outdoor areas, you may want to check out our MityMic, which comes fitted with a windscreen – perfect for outdoor recording.

4. Use any third party microphone not intended for use with Apple products (i.e. a hand held mic)
Our Third Party Mic & Adapter Cable will allow you to interface almost any sort of third party mic with a 3.5mm jack and make it into an iPad Microphone.
