Editors’ Notes

We never expected a lilypad to unlock our musical abilities. Yet here we are, somehow carving beautiful melodies from a selection of them. Lily isn’t entirely whimsical, however: its lilies are essentially deft musical instruments providing organic lessons in scales, harmonies, and tempo. Be sure to save and upload your compositions, too.

Lovely app with hidden depths

Like a lot of people I downloaded this as the free app of the week and didn't try it out for a while. Now I've had a look at it I can only say how clever and lovely it is. Layering sounds, different speeds and sound level all with a gentle oriental tone. A great relaxing way to while away some time and the more you use it the more creative you become.
