One of Apple's All-Time Top 20 Apps, Smule’s Ocarina turns your iPhone into an ancient flute. With no musical training required, you'll blow away your friends and family with your new talent.
"If everyone had the Ocarina app there would be no more wars" - David Pogue
"One of the most original entertainment programs to emerge from the App Store" - Wall Street Journal
"Ocarina is one of the most magical programs I've ever seen" - NY Times
Sensitive to your breath, touch and movements, Ocarina is more versatile than an actual flute:
• Blow air into your mic to create music
• Touch combinations of holes to play notes
• Tilt to change vibrato rate and depth
• Advanced users can change keys and modes, including C-Major and Zeldarian mode
With Ocarina, you can also hear people learning to play around the world:
• Listen in on Ocarina players all over the world just by tapping the globe icon
• Rate your favorite performances
• Name your Ocarina so others can listen to you play
• Share your favorite performances with family and friends via e-mail
• Record and archive your favorite performances on your own “My Ocarina” web page
Ocarina fans from all over the world have posted hundreds of free easy–to-read scores for popular songs. Just go to http://ocarina.smule.com and click on 'Songbook'.

Ratings and Reviews
I know this is good but...
It won’t let me use more than 2 fingers, might just be my phone tho
Beautiful music can be made if you spend a little while and get the hang of it!
To those worried about spoiling your mic with vapour: I've found that blowing almost perpendicularly into the mic works better than blowing into it, solving two problems!
There are any number of cool extra features that smule could add to this, but 1 is crucial: being able to TOUCH INSTEAD OF BLOW to play. Reason: accessibility and options. I want to be able to do what's most fun and convenient. Some people don't have enough breath, some people don't have a mic (iPod touch), and it's not always practicable to blow - but you may still want to make music! Please provide this option.
It doesn't give you any songs to play, it's just you messing around with the flute and listening to people round the world
