We all knew Old MacDonald had a farm. Apparently, he also has an iPhone.
A likely contributing factor to the application’s emergent popularity is the interactive nature of the app, which enables users – presumably kids with a few young-at-heart grown ups added to the mix – to record their own voice to participate in the fun sing-along experience.
Setting the mood for the personalized music are the visually striking interactive landscapes hand-painted on canvas by accomplished artist Norm Magnusson. The professional talent that brings Old MacDonald to life once again also includes pop vocalist Jill Sobule, whose voice is ultimately just as dazzling as the app itself.
Of course, the expected assortment of barnyard animals are similarly along for the ride – authentic sounds included. All in, the impressive look and execution of the Old MacDonald update provides new opportunities to enjoy a classic like never before.
Other highlights of the $1.99 application include:
- Record your little one (or yourself) doing an original rendition of Old MacDonald.
- A variety of musical styles and instrument combos are available, including bluegrass, guitar, mandolin, and banjo.
- Learn about different animals and hear their sounds, created by feature film sound designer Coll Anderson.
- Keep exploring to find a secret bonus screen
Upbeat and entertaining, Old MacDonald is one of those childhood favorites that will never leave us. And thanks to the new application from Fish The Mouse Media, this classic can remain both familiar and contemporary. Definitely a worthwhile addition to the family-friendly section of the App Store.
Old MacDonald – By Fish The Mouse Media requires the iPhone OS 2.2.1 or later and is compatible with both iPhone and iPod Touch.
