Picture + sound is fun, but withholding cool options is not.

Is It Any Good?

A simple and clear interface make this easy to use, but unfortunately it lacks the features to make it a truly creative endeavor. Soundcircles is an easy way to send a special message to a friend, such as a birthday card where each person sings a portion of the birthday song. The included clips can lead to some silly play, and the interface is a pleasure to use. What trips up this app is the sample set of Soundcircles that have been created by branded partners. These have cool features that aren't available to the general user at the time of review. Soundcircles is fine as it is, but once you see the possibilities, it's hard not to miss the extra features, such as links, and the ability to create quizzes that reveal their own answers.

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.
