This simple, free iPhone app is excellent and likely to be enjoyed by kids and adults alike. In essence, Dropophone lets you compose your own little melodies that sound like “drips and drops falling on a tiny orchestra of instruments”. Press the multi-coloured raindrop and the note will play on a 6 second loop. The green metronome helps you keep time although most toddlers won’t pay attention to that as they’ll be too busy making tunes. The red button stops the loops so they can start over.
If you ever get stuck for some late night melodies for the baby, I reckon Dropophone would certainly come in handy. I wrote this post listening to my own composition. Lookout for my chart debut…
Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad from iTunes.
