What I liked 1. This is a very nice application to have for the holidays. It's an application that is very fun to use with friends and family.
2. The amount of carols I got for one dollar is good. I would like to see more, even if they were with IAP system.
3. The changing background option is really handy and looks very nice. I like how easy it is to acces.


Improvements 1. I don't understand why the application is not native for the iPad. The iPad display size would be much better to use. The text would be larger.
2. I tap on the How To Video and I'm taken to a website where is no video tutorial. The tutorial would be nice to be integrated in to the application. With no need to go to an external source.
3. I don't understand what the play button in the right bottom corner is supposed to do. I tap it and untap it but noting happens. The other, voice canceling button, works just fine.
4. I wish the text would highlight as we sing it. Not the hold row at once.


General review Overall this application is good. The content is excellent and it's enough. The design is simple and easy to use, but I would like a full screen native iPad option. I had fun with this application together with my friends and family. I can't give this app a 5 star rating just yet. It needs some work.

What I liked I really enjoyed this app. It really put me in the Christmas mood as well as served as a game for a holiday party. Everyone read and sang along to the words. We even hooked the iPod to a sound bar to maximize the sound. This app was a great addition to my holiday party.


Improvements An improvement I'd like to see in a future version would the words that also come in black as opposed to the white letter. It was slightly difficult to see with the lights on and when applying the colored backgrounds. Also, maybe even add some contemporary holidays songs.


General review In my general opinion, this app is fantastic for holiday get togetherness or parties. I played this app with friends and family members. We turned the vocal feature off and all joined in. The variety of songs provided gave everyone the opportunity to bring the holidays in.

What I liked This app was a nice addition to the holiday season.

I liked that you could choose to hear the vocals or just have the instrumental music.

I also liked the four different background choices to change the look up of the app.

This app had a nice variety of classics and children's favorites to choose from.


Improvements There isn't a lot that I can think of for this section.

Of course, more songs would be great to see. Songs like Frosty the Snowman, Oh Christmas Tree, and Deck the Halls for a few examples.

I was surprised when I played just the instrumental that you can still hear the vocals. It's not that big of a deal, but you still can.


General review This is a nice app to get your family into the holiday spirit. The app provides 12 different songs that you can play with or without the vocals. It also has four festive backgrounds to choose from. What a great way to gather the family together and get into the spirit of the holidays!

What I liked I like that you can turn the voice on and off. I also like that you can change the color in here's background. Also the tracking is very helpful for those that are trying to keep up with the song. Tree really are a lot of options for songs and the songs are all popular Christmas songs.


Improvements When you turn off the words you can still hear the singing in ether background. When I turn off the words I want it to be just the music, not the voice turned down. It would also be a nice addition if you could change not only the background colors but the color of the words also, Another feature that would be a great addition would be the ability to record your singing.


General review This is already a good app if you want to sing karaoke to your favorite Christmas songs. Some minor adjustments will make it even better. This app provides the singer with a choice of 12 popular Christmas songs and the options to sign along or sing solo.

What I liked I love how you can change the background color of the screen during the song. There is a wonderful song selection in this app. I love that it's a real voice singing not a robotic sounding voice. The count down to the singing is great especially for kids just learning some of the songs so they know when to start.


Improvements I wish you could see the falling snow on the blue and red backgrounds. It really blends in and then you can hardly see it. I would like to see the more info locked somehow so children can't get into it such as a press and hold feature as seen in some apps. For auto play it says "auto play off and auto plan on" I think you mean to have auto play on.


General review Cute, friendly app that has a wonderful selection of songs. I really like that you can choose to have the song sung with you or without you. The word highlighting is done very well and seems to keep up with the song just right. Also like the ability to change the background color in the app :)

What I liked This app includes eleven Christmas songs and Auld Lang Syne to ring in the New Year. Each song has lyrics on the screen that are colored so you can follow along. There is an option to mute the vocals and another to put the twelve songs on a loop. Four background colors choices allows you to personalize the screen.


Improvements For the goal of this app, I think it is great. It includes some of the main Christmas carols. I would love to see additional songs such as Twelve Days of Christmas, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, Here Comes Santa Claus, and Frosty the Snowman, to name a few. I love the mix included, and I appreciate seeing faith based carols included!


General review Christmas Karaoke App is the perfect app to take on a caroling adventure! The music is great, and with or without the vocals, it sounds wonderful. The highlighted words makes it easy to follow along for anyone who can read. My kids enjoyed being able to sing along and not just hum the words they didn't know!

What I liked I liked the vocal on each song. It's actually pretty good. I also liked the selection of the Christmas songs in this app. Most are my favorite. I also liked the feature to mute the vocal so that I or we can sing a long to the instrumental music. I also liked the feature to change the background designs to my liking. The blue one is my favorite.


Improvements I really wish to see an option to choose the voice type. Users can choose if they want to hear a male, female or a kid as the one singing in the song. I also think that there should be a share to social sites button in this app to promote the app. Maybe adding a Facebook, G+ or Twitter icons on the main menu.


General review This is a great app that is perfect for Christmas. The selection of the songs are good. There's even a mute button to remove the vocal in the song to make it an instrumental music. 4 nice background to choose from. Blue was my favorite. This app is pretty cheap for its price.

What I liked There was a nice selection of songs available in the app and there seemed to be a variety of both traditional religious songs and more "pop" songs. The interface was simple and straight forward and I liked that you could change the color of the background to suit your preferences and for reading ease.


Improvements I thought that the snow falling animation in the background was very distracting and made it hard for me to focus on the lines as I was going through a song. The ability to turn that off or even have it off for some backgrounds would be nice. The graphics also seemed fuzzy and out of focus on my iPad. It was easy to see the pixels and I thought it looked a little unpolished because of that.


General review This is a nice app that provides a good selection of christmas themed karaoke choices. The music is well done and it is simple to use. With some simple fixes this would be a very solid app that would definitely be worth the money for some simple and fun karaoke.

What I liked It's a wonderful way to spend time with your family at Christmas. I liked the variety of traditional songs to choose from and one of the features I found particularly great was being able to choose between singing along with the vocals or just using your own because a lot of Karaoke apps do not have this ability. The changeable backgrounds look very Christmassy and the quality of the graphics and music were spectacular.


Improvements Whilst I valued and enjoyed the variety of songs to choose from I would like to see some more added such as Let It Snow which is a favorite of mine and my family's. It would also be nice to have apps like this for other holidays like Halloween or Easter.


General review A wonderful activity to do with your family at Christmas. The backgrounds are very festive and look high quality as is the quality of the music. There's a nice selection of traditional songs to utilize and having the ability to sing along with vocals or without them is a rare feature not seen much which I found very worthwhile.

What I liked I liked that there was the option to have the vocals sung along with the song or to turn the vocals off. The option to be able to chose the background screen was nice. I also like the option of choosing between auto play and getting to chose the next song.


Improvements I felt that a couple of songs did not have the melody as the main music (Rudoph the Red Nose Reindeer in particular) which would make it difficult to sing along to without the vocals on. The addition of more songs would increase the value of this app.


General review Overall I was very pleased with the app. It appears to be a good value for the purchase price. This app appears to appeal to a large audience as it is suitable for all age groups. The app is suitable to be used both in homes as well as in schools as an educational app.
