Top Paid App in App Store: Ocarina


Looks cool and is pretty cheap. But, is blowing into the mic port like that really healthy for the phone? Just curious.

I just bought this last night. It's pretty awesome. I am also a keyboard player, so I'm gonna make a little rendition of Clocks by Coldplay with keyboard and Ocarina. I'm pretty excited about it. When it's done and I have a video, I"ll be sure to send it to you guys.

This makes me think of the very first time I ever saw someone speaking on their cell phone with a mic and headphone set. He was standing in line at a gas station and everyone thought he was some insane man talking to himself. I kept my distance from him until I finally noticed the cable going down his shirt.
Needless to say, I'm not ready to blow into my phone in front of people quite yet.

I love how this app does everything in an original way. They have leveraged so many of the iPhone's abilities here into what is still a very simple and straight forward app. While the sales do surprise me, the reactions do not. Very good work by Smule.
