The MBK app is not really a karaoke app nor is it entirely new to the windows store. Currently at build 188.8.131.52
The app just caters to the karaoke loving community by allowing users to create a personal karaoke catalogue that can be accessed from within the app. The hidden beauty of this app is that it will find any and all cameras and microphones on whatever windows 8.1+ device that you happen to be using at the time. This allows users to create audio and video recordings from within the app & saves these recordings to your My Videos folder on your device.
The app was kind of Inspired by this YouTube video created by Emmanuel & Phillip Hudson. If you’ve seen the video, then you know how funny it is. Honestly it was so popular that they made a part 2 to this video. Come to find out, these two guys have racked up well over 30 million views of these two YouTube videos & the first time I had seen it was on Facebook!
Anyway, these videos reminded me of how I used to sing songs and change the lyrics because I didn’t know them. I actually made a hobby out of rewriting songs to make the lyrics funny to me, it was fun, to me. So when I started to learn how to make windows phone apps in 2011 the 1st thing that I wanted to build was this app. So that everyone who wanted to could make music videos like Emmanuel & Phillip Hudson.
The Mo’ Better Karaoke Music & Video Recording Studio app is the result of that effort. Most people see the name and think that this is some glorified karaoke app, but actually it does a whole lot more than karaoke.
