Singster is more than just a karaoke app, we're talking about a new community that enables you to tune in, sing and either rock to or ultimately destroy more than 1,300 classics. It doesn't matter if you can or can't sing. As long as you have a voice, some confidence (alcohol is said to help, adults) and the app installed on your Windows Phone, you'll be able to sing your favourite hits, recording the performance and take part in competitions.

TuneWiki is a pretty cool website where you can check out not only the lyrics for your favorite song but also discuss song meanings--always a favorite pastime. The site has apps for that are very popular on Android and iOS and now we're pleased to see it has arrived on Windows Phone too. Best part? We're not looking at some generic port but what looks like an honest attempt to embrace the Windows Phone UI. Here are the features:

  • Listen to any music with synced lyrics
  • Share lyrics from your favorite songs with your network of friends
  • Get lyrics instantly translated into 40+ languages
  • What does that song mean? Comment on and discuss the meaning of lyrics and songs
  • Discover new music in your SongBox – songs that are being played and recommended by your friends
  • Explore Song Maps and real-time Top Charts to discover popular songs nearby and around the world

We just gave the free app a spin on our phone and boy do we like it--its clean, bold, pulls down the lyrics and plays them "Karaoke style" i.e. no scrolling and even has a neat mapping feature. We can see now why ~5 million people are using the service as it's presented very well.

Anyways, if it sounds like something you'd be into, don't worry as the app is free and available now. Head here to the Marketplace to give it a go. Thanks, Andy, for the tip!
