A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this app.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Kindermusik Radio offers five radio stations of children's music and stories streamed live, along with song lyrics and suggested activities. The app features songs from Kindermusik classes and other children's albums, some of which can be purchased through iTunes. Parents can also use the app to search for Kindermusik classes nearby. The app uses the device's data plan or WiFi connection; iPod Touch users will need a WiFi connection to use this app.
Is it any good?
Kindermusik Radio offers a wide variety of music for babies and preschoolers, helpfully grouped into five stations: "Bounce and Rhymes," "Animals, Animals," "Get Up and Move!" "Mostly Lullabies," and "Tell Me a Story." The current selection's title, lyrics, and album art are displayed, but this information doesn't always refresh automatically, so parents might have to re-select the station to get up-to-date information. If parents hear a song they especially like, they can buy the track or the entire album through iTunes by clicking on a link in the app.
