“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:

Top iPod Touch Recording App: Voxie (not iTalk)

iPod Touch recording with Voxie has its advantages.


You guys are using your iPod Touch microphones in all kinds of imaginative ways. From guerilla journalists conducting recorded interviews in the field, to grade school girls recording their singing rehearsals, to academics recording lectures, the list goes on! We even had a gentleman inquire about using our mic as a hearing aid  (don’t ask, that interesting story is for another blog post!).

In any case, we are often asked to recommend a good voice recording app. Well after testing the top two apps available on the app store for recording – “iTalk Recorder Premium” and “Voxie” – we think that Voxie takes the cake!

Why we chose Voxie

Both apps have nice features too long to list here, so we want to cut to the chase and tell you the 4 reasons why we think Voxie stands out :

  1. Quality – In our testing the Voxie recording had less background noise and better pickup than the iTalk app.
  2. User Interface – Both apps look great, but Voxie’s takes the cake by using the familiar and effective iPhone style interface along with a beautiful choice of skins.
  3. Features – Voxie is the only recording app you should ever need.
  4. Price – At $1.99 it comes in $3 cheaper than iTalk Recorder Premium.

We recently featured Voxie in a video with our TouchMic Lapel Mic:
