Ocarina Turns Your iPhone into a Wind Instrument

Just a couple of days ago, Smule released a novel iPhone application called Ocarina. In that brief time, it has skyrocketed to the 7th most popular paid application and seems likely to make its way to #1.

Ocarina is described as the first true musical instrument for the iPhone.

Both experts and beginners will be amazed by this innovative player. Ocarina is sensitive to your breath, touch and movements, making it even more versatile than the original. Unlike other musical applications, there are no pre-compiled riffs so musicians will find unlimited opportunities for self-expression. Advanced options allow you to choose between diatonic, minor and harmonic scales. Or channel your favorite video game adventurer with Smule's Zeldarian mode.
