From the guys who brought you Mystery Science Theater 3000, RiffTrax makes movies FUNNY! Our hilarious commentaries turn some of the biggest blockbusters (and cheesiest B-movies) into comedy hits.
“The RiffTrax app syncs everything up perfectly.” - CNET
“Rifftrax app takes the guesswork out of syncing jokes to film. It’s easier than ever to sync MST3K-like commentary. The app uses your device’s microphone to listen for a movie and automatically syncs Rifftrax playback to the film. It’s simple and easy...” - Engadget
“The app can recognize movies from Netflix, iTunes, Amazon Video, DVDs, Blu-rays, your TV, computer, and other streams.” - High-Def Digest
Using the app, you can download these "riffs" on blockbuster films like Twilight, Jurassic Park, Star Wars and more! The app listens to the movie, using your device's microphone, and automatically synchronizes the commentary to play along with perfect timing. Presto! That movie is now a comedy smash.

Ratings and Reviews
Love RiiffTrax but the app needs help PLEASE!
My family and I have been watching you guys for years as MST3K and RiffTrax. When we stumbled upon the jokes to sync with our movies OMG we kids in a candy store. Our kids couldn’t wait to listen to you Riff their movies. The issue is that the app does not allow for syncing through any Bluetooth device. Is there a reason that you may know of? We tried quite literally every single Bluetooth speaker in our home and then even tried to do it the old fashion way and bypass with plugging in an aux cord but alas nope. The app will not play any sound unless it’s directly from the phone. It would be great if this feature could be fixed/updated so the Riffs could be heard for one and all.
Thanks and again you guys are awesome!
Cool App for Riff Heads
Unlike negative trolls of this world who rejoice when things go wrong, I had no problems syncing audio to the first line of movie dialogue. Yeah it would be ideal to sync from the beginning so I could hear the guys jest around the credits and opening theme but it is still a wee marvel that it syncs at all simply through recognizing sound waves. Wee marvel was Mike Nelson's nickname in college.
Nice new feature shows you latest free offers so you can see how it works before you blow $4 on a Star Wars title or whatnot. After 11 years of post MST3K riffing, the riff catalogue is vast with all sorts of genres and riffmaster combinations so beware the rabbit hole when you finally learn to shut up while it's trying to sync.
The big problem keeping this from being 5 star review - and I know the programmers are reading so GBTW - this is the only audio app on iOS that DOES NOT USE SYNCED BLUETOOTH DEVICES. I can sync up a speaker or headset that could blare music just fine but the rifftrax riffs come through the phone speaker and headphone jack only. :( Hammer that out and this will be the greatest tool to sass movies the universe will ever know.
Some Rough Spots But Still a Gem
This is one of the most underrated apps in the App Store. It may not be perfect interface-wise but syncing the riffs is a perfect use case for the tech. Also, the content is good and incredibly cheap. A few dollars to turn an otherwise unwatchable movie into a good comedy? Count me in. I think Apple should feature it.
Re-reading my own review I realize this actually sounds like a fake review! So let me just say this: watch the movie 300 with the rifftrax going. You will 100% agree that it is the definitive version of this movie. There aren’t many apps that possess the ability to utterly transform and elevate the quality of what is already considered premium content. That’s why I think Apple should promote it..
