Ease:

3/5

A simple app that is easy to use. About a quarter of the jokes require a knowledge of classical musical terms.

Intelligence:

3/5

It is hard for any app like this to appeal to everyone’s tastes, so you’ll find many groaners among only a few chuckles.

Extras:

3/5

You can tap to get instant sound effects such as the traditional “ba-dum-dum” drum sound or laughter. You can flag your favorites.

Gossip:

3/5

Many users say the jokes made them laugh – a few disagree.

Musician's Note

This one made me laugh out loud: ”What is the difference between a dead skunk in the road and a dead guitar player in the road? Answer: There are skid marks in front of the skunk.” Even when a joke was a bit of a groaner, it was fun and uplifting to scroll through the extensive library. A reasonable proportion of the jokes depend on classical musical terms, so those not schooled in the classical genre will be left scratching their heads.
