a true musical instrument for the iphone

( These scores use an easy-to-follow system that requires no past musical training, Each score is presented using a simple 4-hole diagram, where the filled-in blue hole means you should press and hold your finger on that hole while you blow. There are 16 possible different finger-combinations available for you to play within each mode, and we display them in our scores like this)

I thought this application Ocarina was pretty innovative. It has a very cool mapping/listening mode and Midomi that is Shazam-like but over and above listening to a playing song, it lets you sing a snippet, announce the name of the song or type it to then get a screen showing you artist info, youtube and itunes links and the amusing plus of listening to other users singing snippets.
