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
Are we expecting any updates on the app?
(Practice makes) Perfect.
Like playing any real instrument, it takes practice. Don't expect to become a maestro all at once. A good place to start practising would be the Smule Ocarina website, where there are plenty of score sheets of familiar songs to start with.
Holding the iPhone to play the Ocarina may feel awkward at first, but you'll get the hang of it. The Sound quality is excellent. The only trouble I seem to have is the multitouch detection of holding all 4 keys down on the Ocarina. Otherwise, an all-rounded, well-made application.
music lovers' must-have
VERY amazed by the sound quality and how easy it can be played,
liked the globe-music thingy very much also! feels like everyone around the world is playing with you;
and the ocarina homepage has many easy to read scores to play those musics!
great app! apple should make it as a default iphone/ipod app! haha
