[prMac.com] Toronto, Canada - Pocketglow today is pleased to announce the release of Harmonica 2.4.1, a minor update to their popular music app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. The Harmonica app simulates a real diatonic harmonica. The iPhone's touch screen can be triggered by the user's lips, and the physical dimensions of the iPhone are similar to that of a real harmonica, further extending the illusion. Consisting of tweaks and fixes, this update makes the innovative lip-based app almost indistinguishable from the previous version.
"This update will excite absolutely nobody," said Benjamin McDowell, Harmonica's creator. "Sure, it's still funny when someone puts their iPhone in their mouth, but bug fixes? This update barely warrants a press release."
Harmonica includes harmonicas in all 12 keys, and the ability to teach users how to play real songs on the harmonica. Users can choose from 40 different songs of varying difficulty levels, built right into the app. After watching a demo of the song being played, users can then try to play it for themselves with the on-screen guides. Whether you use it to make your friends laugh or to annoy your co-workers, Harmonica is indispensable.
