**iTunes Top 10 App of the Year for Art and Music**
Bubble Harp draws bubbles around your fingertips, recording and replaying your movements while creating music. It’s a combination of drawing, animation, music, art, geometry, and gaming. You can record long movements of a single point, or stream many points out of your fingertips like ink. When you tap the screen's edges, you can change from single points to streams of points, change graphic and sonic parameters, and post to Facebook. Multiple fingers and multiple people can touch the screen at once to create together. Bubble Harp was first released as a work of interactive art by Scott Sona Snibbe that was only available in galleries and museums. Now it’s available as an iPhone and iPad application that also makes music.
Rated #1 Music App and Apple's Top Music App in many countries, since its release.

What's New in Version 2.1

* It's now easier to bring up toolbar - just tap once at bottom of screen.
* Music is now turned on by default for new users.
* Bubble Harp files can be copied from the app - go into iTunes and find the ".bhp" files under the app, which you can email to friends or share online.
* Two settings are available now in the "Settings" app: one to to allow double-tap to bring up the toolbar (if you find the toolbar coming up too easily), and the other to enable/disable music.
I love this app! My rating is five star plus!
I think the art of this app is the best part of it but whatever you like it is an all around awesome app. I have found that if you draw it well you can make bird figures and other awesome items and they can be surrounded by the coolest webbing. You can also squiggle really fast on a side of the window and it can be a really tight messed animation. Whatever you chose to do this app is just awesome. I have now purchased all apps by this person!
Beautiful Harp is Fantastic!
Bubble Harp is a beautiful new form of visual-musical instrument.... part new media art, part experimental music, and just plain fun. I could play with it for hours, and it is always different. Snibbe's apps are always elegant and meditative, and I never tire of them.
The new version lets you save your musical creations, load, post to Facebook, and it is very easy to bring up the settings too -using a single tap at the bottom of the screen.
Bubble Harp was one of my favorite apps even before there was sound. It has gotten better and better ever since. Try setting it to single dot mode, chromatic scale--even just a few dots can create amazing and surprising sounds (music?). I have no musical talent, but this app makes me feel like a participant in an avant garde musical collaboration.
I can't recommend this highly enough.
