Caspar Babypants: Music Time

Reviewed on 3/6/15

Caspar Babypants is the most prolific indie kids’ musician of recent years and his music is consistently high quality and enjoyable for listeners of all ages.  You can now enjoy his music while singing and playing along via this well-designed app. If you’ve never heard his music, buying the app will gain you access to two songs from each of his published albums.  If you’re already a die-hard fan and own all of his albums, you can add all of the songs from your personal collection into the app as well.  Each song gives users the option to play along on a xylophone, guitar or rhythm instruments (all tuned to the song as it progresses, so it always sounds harmonious).  For families who like to create their own music with physical instruments, there’s an option to see the lyrics and chords as they play (you can even slow it down to practice while you’re learning a song).  Despite an occasional typo in the lyrics, in a field of other music-making apps, this one stands out for its clean, simple design and ease of use.
