Top 5 iOS Music Apps You Can’t Afford To Miss

Starting to play an instrument is easy. Just a couple of hours and you can impress that special someone with your mesmerizing tunes. That is, unless you belong to the sizeable group of beings called humans…

For most, getting started is actually super frustrating. The key to it is overcoming the first few steps until you actually feel comfortable with the instrument. The music apps below are a fun, casual, introductory apps to learning music. Jam a little, create some music, feel good about yourself and have fun!

Acapella from PicPlayPost, by Mixcord

Acapella from PicPlayPost

Record yourself singing or playing an instrument and join the channels together for a fun acapella sequence. The current version is free to download in celebration of their newest launch, however, there are in-app purchases for creating longer sequences.

Free Karaoke! Sing karaoke on YouTube with Yokee

Free Karaoke! Sing karaoke on YouTube with Yokee

A wonderful karaoke app! You can record yourself singing and share your performance with others (but careful – if you share people will be able to rate your singing). The app enhances your voice so you sound better than you actually do, which is a nice touch, though I prefer facing the honest reality, and therefore never sing 🙂

Price: The app is free to download with a selection of free songs and a subscription is available for purchase for full access.

Ocarina by Smule

Ocarina by Smule

Unsurprisingly, Smule has another app in this short collection. Launched in the early days of the iPhone (remember the good ol’ days?), Ocarina lets you blow air in the iPhone mic, turning it into a virtual, you guessed it, ocarina. In case you’re wondering, an Ocarina is an ancient wind instrument dated more than 12,000 years ago(!). It looks something like this:
