Thanks to video games, karaoke is more than just a barroom activity, and StarMaker Karaoke makes it more accessible than ever with a robust, feature-filled app that is a lot of fun, despite its relatively high cost of entry.
StarMaker Karaoke with Auto-Tune is exactly as it sounds, a karaoke app that allows you to sing along to your favorite songs on the iPad. You can record each of the songs as you sing them and even turn on Auto-Tune or Magic Tune to really take your song to the next level. Combined with guide vocals, background vocals, headphone recording, and the ability to share your songs, this is a very impressive collection of tools for karaoke lovers. The interface is smooth and user-friendly, the song selection is large, and there are multiple options for accessing the paid content.
That is also the major drawback of StarMaker Karaoke, unfortunately. When you first download the app, you are given 70 credits. These credits can be used to buy songs, but most songs cost at least 100 credits. There are a handful of older songs for 50 or 70 credits, but to access the new tracks that most people will want, you'll need between 100 and 250 credits. Credits can be earned by completing achievements or watching videos (including ads) or you can pay for weekly or monthly VIP subscriptions. If you enjoy karaoke and use this app a lot, it's well worth it; but for one or two songs, it's a steep entry price. All that notwithstanding, it's a great app that karaoke lovers will use again and again.
