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'.

Warning to new users
It works but I’m giving you a warning now, I legitimately broke my built in mic on my iPad 6 by using this and now no one can hear me when I voice chat with them unless they have their volume maxed out with no background noise and me yelling in the mic. The app works as it should but don’t over do it or else you won’t be able to use it.
My absolute favorite instrument app
I’ve been using this app since 2009 or 2010 and it has brought my life so much joy. It’s like always having a musical instrument in your pocket. I love to pull it out and play songs for my friends. I use the Ionian and Dorian modes to play everything from Somewhere Over the Rainbow to Hava Nagila. Truly the best party trick. If you have the patience to learn the instrument there’s no way you won’t love this app.
What happened to this app??
What happened to this app?? I used to play this constantly many years ago and then forgot about it until just now. But as I’m trying to go back online to find all of the sheet music to start playing again it’s nowhere to be found. The website doesn’t even exist for the ocarina anymore. What gives?? Why take an entire website down?? If you aren’t going to keep the website then how do you expect people to learn to play songs. This used to be a great app but now I’m just disappointed.
