A lot or a little?

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

Ease of play

The app is easy to use: Choose a station and the music streams automatically. Song information doesn't always refresh automatically, however, so you might have to click on the station again to bring up the new information.

Violence & scariness
Sexy stuff
Language
Consumerism

Each song contains a link that lets users purchase the track that's currently playing, or the entire album, through iTunes. A link from the main menu lists Kindermusik classes offered nearby, and another link leads to more apps for sale from the publisher. Users will be prompted to leave a review in the app store.

Drinking, drugs & smoking

What parents need to know

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.

Perfect for Families!

LOVE IT! Perfect for families in Kindermusik classes already and for educational purpose. Great multicultural music and fun sounds/instruments to play along wit...

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.
