Some Things To Keep In Mind

Parents need to know that Video Star is a fun music video creation tool that allows kids to make original music videos for songs on their iOS device and share them via social media or email. Video Star records video only, and not audio, with numerous onboard special effects and upgrades available with in-app purchases. Kids get a unique music video of them dancing and lip synching to their song of choice, but not with their own voices. Video Star stores creations in-app, and kids can save them to their camera roll or upload to YouTube where a URL is generated to share via Facebook, Twitter, text, or email. Kids can access other Video Star users’ YouTube video creations within the app, so while the app doesn’t have a minimum requirement, it’s best for teens who can grasp the app’s somewhat involved interface — and the responsibilities of sharing via social media.  

Video Star is a Photo & Video app that is designed for those 13.  The app has an overall rating of 4 out of 5 and a learning rating of 2 out of 5.

Video Star is available for Free On The Following Devices:

iPod Touch


Our Thoughts on the Level of Engagement:

Create original music videos from songs in a device’s music library. The app’s technology is sophisticated and gives teens powerful tools to direct — and be the stars of — their own music videos, with many sharing options, too.

The Support Level for Video Star is about a 2 out of 5.

Basic tutorials guide teens through the app’s key features. Teens can save creations to their camera roll, upload directly to YouTube, or send via email, giving them an audience for, and possibly feedback on, their creations.
