Available on iOS and Android, $0.99
What better way to communicate than to compose a message/poem and have William Shatner read them out to your friends and family in his own voice? Add dramatic pauses, pick words from a 'Word Tray' and (this is a bit odd) click on "Shat That!" to hear your often-hilarious handiwork. Says the star: "I can say anything. I can even break up with your boyfriend. I'd be delighted to." You cannot go wrong with the man who lent Captain Kirk a voice.

I Am T-Pain 2.0
Available on iOS, $2.99
Ever wanted to sound like T-Pain? Now you can! Pick a song from your iTunes library and sing along into the mic for the auto-tune pitch correction effect made famous by the Low singer. You can also upload your video straight to YouTube, for all your friends to enjoy.

Mariah Carey-oke LyrIQ
Available on iOS, $3.99
Test your knowledge of the lyrics to Mariah's songs as well as your vocal abilities by singing four of her best songs. The app uses voice recognition software to judge how well you know her tunes and there are four levels of difficulty. Bonus points to the makers for fun puns along the way.

Taylor Swift Greeting Cards
Available on iOS and Android, free
Sure, there are plenty of online greeting card sites and options. But this is Taylor Swift. If you're a fan, enough said. Personalise a card - though ironically, it doesn't feature a break-up one - with selfies, personal notes and signatures, and share them, all while listening to the starlet's hottest songs in the background.
