Sure, there are plenty of piano, guitar and drumming apps out there. However they are all ports of existing musical instruments into your phone. Beatphonic got in touch with us and told us that they created an app that helps to create music on the go, simply by shaking your phone.

The Finnish based company is the industry leader when it comes to providing NTFS, exFAT, HFS+ and other file system solutions that guarantee Windows, Mac and any electronic device interoperability.
