Rock River wants you to sing, record, and send personalized versions of your favorite songs to everyone you know until they refuse to listen with their brand new app StarMaker Karaoke.
“StarMaker Karaoke brings the experience of making a record and being a star to every iPhone user from toddlers to popstars. The app combines the heightened interest in the global karaoke phenomenon, the huge success of American Idol, the explosion of user-generated content, and consumers’ interest in apps such ‘I Am T-Pain’” said Nathan Sedlander, VP of Business Development for Rock River.StarMaker Karaoke is a free app that allows you to play a song, follow along with its lyrics, record your own voice over the top, and share your creation with the world. The interface is definitely easy enough to figure out. Just pick from one of the four included free songs, or download one of the other 100+ available songs for $.99 each, hit record and follow along. When you are finished singing, just hit the stop button and you will be brought to a new page that will allow you to customize and share your song. You can personalize your recording by giving it a unique title and creating custom album artwork for it. Take a new picture or use one from your camera roll and add a variety of items like microphones, sunglasses, hats, etc. to the object, person, or in my case, animal, you chose for your cover. From there you can share your personalized package via email or Facebook. Your recipient will see all of your personalized items along with a link to your song. So let the American Idol wannabe in you out and give StarMaker Karaoke a try.
