Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that mScribble is a music-playing app that is easy to play and is always in tune. It can teach some simple music concepts like pitch and volume, as well as a bit about musical styles. There is an optional toddler mode (adjusted in the iPhone settings screen) that disables the app's menus and all recording and email capabilities and just presents a random style/color combination, making the app safe for any age.
Is it any good?
MSCRIBBLE is a delightful little music app. You can select a music style and a "color," which determines the instrument, and then simply drag your finger around the screen to play music. The pitch is determined by the vertical position of your finger, and the volume is determined by the horizontal position. The app automatically plays a shifting harmony line and adjusts the pitches of the melody to keep everything in tune. You can even send a recording of the last song played via email.
