A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

Making a variety of silly sounds is as easy as dragging a finger around the screen. Those who are so inclined can add effects, toggle scales and sounds, and create custom voices.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Bebot is a sound synthesizer where the noises you make (by tapping and dragging your finger along the screen) are animated by a cute singing robot. There are a variety of preset sounds, effects, and scales to choose from and users can also create their own custom sounds and scales.

Is it any good?

The fun of BEBOT is that it works on two levels. As a synthesizer it's a decent collection of sci-fi sounds, from a wobbly Theremin to robotic beeps and bloops, with the ability to customize and tweak each sound and save your own creations. Younger kids, though, will be perfectly happy just making funny noises and watching them come out of the animated robot's mouth.
