Barnyard Bluegrass Sponsored iPod Nano Giveaway!
It’s all the Buzz in the tech world, the new iPhone 5 and refreshed iPod lineup. With record pre-order sales and regular sales starting this week, we are excited to pass some Great news on to our viewers! The developers of Barnyard Bluegrass have graciously offered to sponsor a Giveaway for the newly refreshed iPod Nano 8th Generation! Released last week, the new model has increased display area, restyled EarPods, and Lightning Connections bringing new life to the device we know and love. One lucky Grand Prize Winner will be awarded this sleek and stylish new model in the color of their choice.
But wait there’s more! Additionally, Barnyard Bluegrass is offering prizes to 5 runners-up – promo codes for their out-of-the-box musical app!
Barnyard Bluegrass – Are you ready to bring a whole new music dimension to your iPad of iPhone? Most music apps focus on basic instruments of piano, xylophone and drum, but in this barnyard children experience the folksy sound of banjo, bass, mandolin, violin, and guitar. As TheiPhoneMom said in our original review, “It’s a lovely change of pace.” (see review)
Are you tired of hearing the same old music from your child’s favorite app? Barnyard Bluegrass is here to help! This lovable band of animated farm animals comes equipped with banjos, fiddles, basses, mandolins and guitars and they aren’t afraid to use them. Offering seven complete songs – with accompanying read along lyrics – children can enjoy fantastic on-demand music using an interface simple enough for a toddler. Perhaps more importantly, parents may find themselves asking to turn the volume up, rather than down.
As if that wasn’t enough, there are three other areas of the app where visitors can delve deeper into the genre and make music of their own. Users can select an instrument and play it using a simple one-finger controller, read about the instruments and hear samples, or head to the farmer’s porch and jam with the entire band. Each area offers a different perspective on the music and gives young learners plenty of room to explore and create.
Tapping into children’s existing love of song, Barnyard Bluegrass offers “yee-haw worthy” renditions of classics like Old MacDonald, Turkey in the Straw, and Hole in the Bucket. For a more traditional taste of the style, there are several ageless bluegrass standards, namely: Pig in a Pen, Blue Railroad Train, Cluck Old Hen, and Nine Pound Hammer. To bring this much loved genre to life, we called upon Astrograss, a f fixture in both the New York City Bluegrass and Kids Music Scene, to perform and record just those tunes that would best connect to young users. All music was recorded and mixed at Inner Harbor Studios, NYC and was mastered specifically for Apple devices.
Barnyard Bluegrass is available in both LITE(free) and FULL ($1.99) versions and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
