Rock Prodigy utilizes a user interaction that will be vaguely familiar to players of the music games Guitar Hero and Rock Band. With your iRig plugged in, you play along with real songs by the real artists. You have the ability to slow the song down, rewind, fast forward and loop any section or phrase of the song that you wish, however this feature is somewhat hampered by the distracting digital stretching that is required when you choose to slow the song down. Another setback is the limited catalog available to download, and let's not forget that you will be forking out cash for every song you purchase. Because of these setbacks, Rock Prodigy may not be the most appealing option for beginners. But for those who have a steady grasp of guitar, and don't mind the somewhat clumsy interface, Rock Prodigy is a decent way to really dissect some songs that may have eluded you in the past...assuming one of those songs happens to be part of their limited catalog. Rock Prodigy also has a version of this app dedicated exclusively to Dave Mustain and is hosted by the Megadeth guitar maestro himself. That app will definitely cater to more advanced players that are fans of Megadeth, but I honestly have a hard time recommending these apps as viable learning tools.

What is it about?
