Do songs like “Bungle In the Jungle,” “Stairway to Heaven” and the Zelda theme song have 5 stars ratings on your iPhone? Then perhaps you should check out an iPhone flute app called Ocarina by Smule. The app utilizes both the iPhone’s touchscreen and microphone creating the first true iPhone wind instrument.

What is an “Ocarina”?

An ocarina is an ancient flute-like wind instrument and one of the easiest instruments to learn. To use Ocarina, just blow into your iPhone’s microphone and control the pitch with different fingerings on the touch screen.
