Songify - Fun way to make your own tunes; some iffy user uploads.
iQ:smartparent Brings You the Top Pick of the Week. 

Today’s pick of the week focuses on ways kids teens can create their own media. Songify is a clever app for iPhone and iPad that turns spoken words into a catchy melody. Along with pitch correction, thise easy-to-use app randomizes and repeats sentences. Kids can listen to other users' music, some of which can have mature content and language, but the password-protect option makes Songify appropriate for kids younger kids as well, with parental supervision. Music lovers and budding pop stars will have fun with this inventive musical tool, and hearing their words come to life may inspire them to pursue more creative musical ventures.
