Do you feel worthy of appearing on American Idol, The X Factor or America’s Got Talent? There’s a new app that will let you show your stuff without hitting the national stage — or perhaps in preparation of doing so. Called Audition 2.5.2, the updated app for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch devices is the first mobile video audition platform. Audition allows users to upload videos that display their talent for consideration. Video auditions are reviewed by entertainment executives and producers who are seeking the next Hidden Star, including:
* K-pop Star Entertainment Management Company
* Tn Entertainment
* Jelly Fish
* TS Entertainment
* WS Entertainment
* Eyagi Entertainment
* Midas Music
* Booming Entertainment & Contents
* DSP Media
Users can watch other people’s video auditions to offer feedback, write reviews, and vote for the Best Audition Video. Rankings are based on New, Most Reviewed, Most Played, and Most Liked ranking.
* Simple and easy-to-use interface
* Post and upload video talent auditions
* Audition for reputable entertainment companies
* Receive ratings from others
* Video ranking based on several categories
* Ability to manage reviews and posting of videos
* View, like and review other video auditions
* Receive feedback from entertainment company staff
* Report inappropriate videos
* Retain copyright of video footage
Version 2.5.2 includes several updates to improve the app for the user. In addition to adding the number of plays, reviews, and likes in ranking view, Audition has increased functionality of the user interface and fixed several bugs. Additionally, Audition 2.5.2 now supports iOS 7.
Audition is the first ever app where users can connect with actual entertainment agencies, and are given the opportunity to contact and meet up with agents in real life. Those who have been longing to become the next super stars, can easily upload their talent with a video format, and apply for auditions hosted by real-life agencies! Star-hunters can also find new potential celebrities through this platform, a brand new way of searching for the next star.
After completing a simple registration and confirmation form, users can log in and access the main menu. To review other videos, users can navigate through a variety of category listings and select a video to view by tapping the screen. To upload a video for review, users simply follow on-screen instructions. Users can manage their videos, personal information, and reviews from the Main Menu as well. Videos can be uploaded without any inconvenient lagging, and can be easily played any where at any time. The audition-selection process is shortened for the agencies, and finding information regarding auditions can easily be discovered by star-wannabes. A solution suited for both!
“Audition is the fastest and simplest way to be a K-pop Star,” says Chang Hoon Choi, founder of Jocoos. “Anyone can upload their audition video from their smartphone for free. Also, the copyright for the video remains in the uploader’s hands. Naturally, Audition has the right to remove videos with explicit or inappropriate content or videos uploaded for commercial gain.” He adds that Jocoos is always seeking feedback and ideas on how to improve the Audition app and invites users to contact them through the website.
