Karaoke is a great way to break the ice at gatherings because it’s easy to get even the quietest of people to sing their favorite song starts playing. However, karaoke machines can be incredibly expensive. RockIt Karaoke for iPhone and iPad aims to solve that problem by bringing the karaoke experience straight to your device.
While this might sound like a difficult thing to do, RockIt Karaoke accomplishes this rather nicely. It’s jam packed with tons of features for a truly fun karaoke experience.
To start singing, simply choose the song you want from the detailed genre selection menu. All songs are streamed from YouTube, so you don’t have to worry about loading your iTunes library on your phone.
Once your song is picked, the karaoke video will start playing at the top of the screen. RockIt Karaoke allows you to easily record your voice while singing, and you can even record video via the front facing camera.
One of the things I really like about RockIt Karaoke is the fact that it’s incredibly easy to find the song you want to sing along to. The app gives you a very detailed breakdown of genres, and you can quickly search for your favorite song. You can also create playlists so there aren’t any breaks between songs.
RockIt Karaoke does come with an optional $2.99 in-app purchase for the all access feature, which allows you to broadcast the karaoke song to your TV via Chromecast or Apple TV.
All access also lets you replay your audio and video recordings, as well as export them to your iPhone library.
Considering the fact that a dedicated karaoke machine can cost quite a bit of money, a mere $2.99 for a few extra features is definitely a good deal. This is especially true when it comes to parties and family gatherings.
Overall, RockIt Karaoke is definitely an amazing app for anyone who enjoys karaoke. Whether you’re singing with a group of friends or you want to show off your musical talent with a solo show, RockIt Karaoke is definitely the way to go.
It’s an incredibly fun app, and the full upgrade certainly won’t break the bank if you find that you enjoy RockIt Karaoke.
RockIt Karaoke requires iOS 5.1.1 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5 and iPhone 6.
