Surprisingly impressive and beautiful

I have to say, when I first downloaded it, I had slightly low expectations. However, after having tried a few photos, I am impressed by the uniqueness for each and every photo I tried. I had an amusing laugh with my husband over a few photos of him with various other people over a few different pictures, as a common note pattern amongst them all had a good section of a mellow/lame pitched flat note repetition. Poking fun at him & along with him that those sections was his melody, representing him as the mono-tonal personal he often is in daily life. Until finally snapping a quick pic of him in that moment for sole purpose of this app and it then created a very beautiful & harmonious melody. Turned out to be the best one so far, even topping my own “horn-tooting” melody I had just previously taunted about. But more on the app itself, after our bit of fun, I played around in it a bit more and found that I really like the options to changing the sounds for each melody created, so to better balance the sound and rhythm created from each picture. In all, it’s truly a unique and pleasant app. And sharing is easy as ever. A bit of advice, after reading other reviews, when you want to share, you’ll need to choose your option twice. 1x to create the media you choose & the 2x to export it out.

I would love to give this app 5 stars if it had a option to pay to remove ads.

It’s great!

Yes it exports audio and MIDI files. Tap once on the icon and it creates the file. Tap again and it gives you option of where to save. Sounds nice. It’d be nice if there were more sounds to choose from but you can use the MIDI files and create your own tracks.
