As research continues to show the benefits of music learning for the brain, California-based family-friendly app developer Selectsoft is excited to announce Guitar All Star, their newest music learning app for iPhone and iPad. Joining Selectsoft's other top-selling education titles, Guitar All Star combines split-screen video lessons, flash cards and a quiz to quickly teach practical guitar skills to users of all ages. Guitar All Star makes it easy to learn, practice and repeat real songs and chords, with over 60 exercises and songs covering strumming, finger picking, riffs and solos. Containing exercises and songs in all the major styles—rock, blues and country, bluegrass and celtic, classical and world music—and covering both acoustic and electric guitar playing, Guitar All Star will keep musicians of all types interested and ready to learn.
Guitar All Star features a simple interface that makes it easy and quick to browse lessons. Users follow along with the step-by-step personal video lessons as an expert shows the right way to play. The demos provide easy-to-follow, clear, close-up split-screen views of both hands to ensure the correct technique. Written insets let users learn by ear and learn to read music at the same time. After watching the video lessons, users can review with a quiz, or browse through the menu to jump to specific lessons for additional practice. Fifty flash cards cover chords, providing an opportunity to work on memorization skills with pictures and text. After completing the Guitar All Star course, users will have learned about both acoustic and electric guitars, effects, amps, stringing, alternate tunings, strumming, finger picking, riffs, solos and more.

Quickly turn any photo into a hilarious talking video with Talking Face Booth, the new animated app coming soon for iPhone and iPad from California-based developer Selectsoft. Users can talk or text to the app to make any photo talk back in a silly voice, or choose from preset phrases and jokes. The app makes it easy to put words into the mouths of friends, family, pets, celebrities, babies, or even objects, and share the videos via Vine, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and more.
It's fast to get started with the app—users take or pick a photo, find the face in the picture, then start recording. Unlike other talking pet and animated booth apps, Talking Face Booth features two different easy-to-use modes, instant repeat and robot text. In immediate playback mode, users simply say anything they want and the photo will animate and repeat the phrase in a silly voice. In text and talk mode, users can access the robust text/talk feature to enter text and hear the picture talk back in a funny robotic voice. The app also includes the option to unlock preset phrase packs including Funny Essentials, Funny Sarcasm, Silly Jokes and the Wisdom of Mark Twain. Once users pick what phrases to use they can speed up or slow down the playback, and change pitch for maximum hilarity. The videos are easy to share, and can be used as e-cards, turned into viral videos, used as music videos and more. Talking Face Booth is coming soon for the iPhone and iPad through the App Store in the Lifestyle category.
