For a new musician to enter into mainstream arena, it can be a very difficult journey. A musician has nothing but talent of its own. But when you want to communicate your songs to millions around the world, it takes much more than just pure talent. The song must be as appealing visually as it is when someone listens to it. Now, one can create a good song if he’s a talented musician. But creating a good music video requires money at first hand. You need to hire a good music director who can get the job done for you. YouTube wonders don’t always work and you can’t risk your career by recording a rough video of your work with you singing live. The music quality is always compromised that way. So what can you do? If you don’t see any option, let me open your eyes!


I’m talking about the latest iOS app called Music Video Maker by Shimmeo. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 8.0 or any later version of the OS.

This Music Video Maker by Shimmeo is super easy to use. If you have some original tracks of yours that you want to make a video for, then simply import your tracks from your SoundCloud account and shoot a video of yours lip-syncing to that song. The scope for imagination is immense as you’re free to choose whatever style filter you want. Then the app will dub the music to your video and you’ll get a completely in-sync music video which you can proudly share with your fans and friends. Even if there are multiple clips, the app seamlessly binds them into one and creates a video that’s as beautiful and brilliant as produced under the supervision of a director. Then you can either share the music video right here on this platform or you can share it on Facebook, Twitter and via other social platforms.


The biggest challenge in front of any musician is to find the right connect with the audience. If he/she can manage that, the song automatically becomes popular. With this app, the users can choose songs from the app lip-sync to it and upload their own video. In this way, if you have uploaded an original song of yours and allowed it to be used by others, your song automatically features into others’ videos and what’s more inspiring to a promising young artist than having his songs covered by others! You can also link your iTunes account or your website with your songs and Shimmeos.

Just like you can create your own Shimmeo, you can watch what others are doing and get inspired by their ideas. You can follow them and get followed. It’s a great community of musicians and fans out there and it really helps new budding artists to grab eyeballs and listeners without spending a penny out of their pockets. Yes, the app is completely free! So what are you waiting for!

Pros: easy to use; import your tracks from SoundCloud; create seamless videos; share on Facebook, Twitter and more; choose song from app, lip-sync and upload your own Shimmeo; follow and get followed; free.

Cons: none.

I give this app 4.5 out of 5 stars.
