Fun for kids or anybody who likes to play and create songs. Like a small tenori-on or ToneMatrix, it's an eight step sequencer with four different instruments and a two octave range.
Just start tapping the screen to see it work. Drag to lay down many notes at once. The colored marks on the side change the instrument you put down. The clear mark on the right erases notes.
Tunes that you invent can be saved as .wav files, where they can be your ring tones or your alerts.
