It can be really fun to hear AutoRap morph your spoken words into a rap. There's no doubt that kids and teens who like rap will love this app, for the first few tries at least -- until earning or purchasing "plays" becomes a necessity if they want to expand their repertoire.

Add to that the dilemma of how to keep it clean enough for kids to enjoy the full karaoke-style features and avoid the iffy song lyrics, as well as the purchases and ad offers, and this free app may just be good for a few fun tries, not to keep on your device long-term.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
