About

What is Rhymecraft?

Rhymecraft is a website that aims to offer tools to help you write professional-quality rap and recitation song lyrics. You can use the same tools to analyze other people's lyrics.

I have a lot of ideas for tools I want to make available through Rhymecraft. The first tool I've got working is the lyrics rhythm recorder, which makes it easier for you to record and view the rhythm with which lyrics are (or should be) performed.

What does the 'Alpha' mean in the title?

'Alpha' is a term used when developing software to refer to the stage in a product's development when not all of the planned features are finished. It's a term that's generally familiar to PC gamers. See the Wikipedia entries for 'Early access' and 'Software release life cycle'.

Is Rhymecraft suitable for children?

There are at least three issues that affect Rhymecraft's suitability for children: the appeal of using Rhymecraft, the complexity of using Rhymecraft, and the content that can be found on Rhymecraft. I will address each in turn.

Will Rhymecraft appeal to children?

My estimate is that Rhymecraft will probably be most interesting to kids ~13 or older who have started to get interested in rap, poetry, or songwriting. Children aged 6 to 11 might take some amount of interest if they have someone explain how to use it, but I wouldn't expect it to have the appeal of Minecraft (to use a relevant example), because it's a bit more of an abstract activity (creating / analyzing lyrics instead of just listening to lyrics).

Is Rhymecraft too complicated for children to use?

My estimate is that children under 10 or so may have trouble understanding most of the instructions, children under ~13 may have trouble understanding some of the instructions (especially if they're trying to learn it on their own), and that children 13 or over will generally be able to understand everything, even if they're learning it on their own.

Is the content that can be found on Rhymecraft suitable for children?

There is currently no way to view user-created content, and the web pages created by me are all G-rated, and so at the moment the answer is "Yes". That will probably change as I add features to the site.

How much does Rhymecraft cost?
