Play music and emulate your favorite wind instrument with Ocarina

Turn your Android device into a musical instrument with Ocarina.

Emulating a wind instrument on your smartphone can be loads of fun. Emulating a wind instrument that was used in the popular video game Zelda is even better. With Ocarina you're able to convincingly and beautifully play many different songs on your device. In addition to being fun, this app is very addictive, too.

Ocarina installs quickly and is ready to use with no additional setup. The main screen is in a brilliant blue color, and there are five keys displayed. When pressed, these five keys emit different sounds and in conjunction with one another the key changes. It is similar to playing a trumpet. Even though there a few keys, the sounds emitted are many. With the soft menu key you are able to select a song, and the notes will play in succession on the screen. It should be noted that this program only works with devices that support at least four multitouches. If it is attempted on other devices, you will be unable to make most of the music. Another great feature of the application is the blow setting. With this special setting, you are able to actually use the device's microphone as a mouthpiece. When you place your fingers on the keys and blow, the device will emit a beautiful note. When you stop blowing the note stops.

Ocarina offers many hours of fun for everyone who likes to play an instrument. It doesn't take any special knowledge or talent to play music, and the challenge keeps you addicted. Playing is similar to playing Guitar Hero. The song selection is pretty big, given that the application is free.
