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.

Top Picks for Smart Parents is brought to you by Common Sense Media and WQED. For more information, visit commonsense.org and wqed.org/smartparent.

Tune in for the premiere of iQ:smartparent #4 – “Tune In, Tune Out” on Thursday, August 29th at 8pm!

Kidobi - Safe YouTube alternative where parents pick video playlists.
iQ:Smartparent Brings You the Top Pick of the Week. Today’s pick of the week focuses on ways parents can make informed decisions about their kid's media use. Kidobi is a website that offers kids and parents a safe, kid-friendly alternative to YouTube. Parents create an account and handpick which videos their child can see. The videos are educationally based, centering on topics like counting and simple science questions. They're also very kid-appropriate, so there's little chance a child will stumble across any adult content. Once parents have created a playlist, kids can watch a full screen version of the videos in a slideshow-type succession. There's also a field to post comments about the videos -- a great way for parents to offer feedback to other parents using the site.
