Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that VidRhythm is one of the oddest music games they will likely ever see. The app, made by the creators of the Rock Band games, asks players to pick a song, record themselves making sounds or saying short words, then pick a thematic background. Once that's done, it creates an often funny music video from the recordings. It's a harmless app, but since it's entirely user generated, there's always the chance that someone will say something inappropriate or record a photo of something other than their face.

QUALITY

One of the most charming things about VIDRHYTHM is being completely surprised by what the game produces. So, without giving away too much, let's say the videos that result from the collection of six sounds you're asked to make will make you smile and mine your creative energies to come up with something truly unique. What's impressive is how easy the app makes it for you to create videos that look professionally polished. Too many apps take themselves seriously. VidRhythm is one of the few that will let you laugh at yourself -- again and again and again.
