Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this amazing app turns the iPhone into a modern-day version of the flute-like ocarina. Just purse your lips and blow into the mic. Kids as young as 6 can learn the fingering but younger ones will be frustrated and limited.
Is it any good?
Ocarina is one of those iPhone apps that sounds crazy. But it works and it's magic. When fingers touch different spots indicated on the screen, the iPhone emits sweet flutelike tones. Sheet music for a wide variety of familiar songs is available. Unfortunately, you can't record your performance, only save a link to the developer's website. Brag e-mails direct family and friends to listen at the site.
