The most realistic and full featured harmonica app available today for any digital platform, period.
Expert harmonica players will enjoy Honey Harmonica's unique flexibility and expressiveness, but it's also a great instrument for beginners to just play around with and have fun.
Best experience on the iPad. Also supports iPhone and iPod touch.
Features of free version:
- No ads! :)
- Standard diatonic harmonica
- Play single notes and chords
- Easy loudness and breath/draw control
- Song book with play along or demo mode
- Song lyrics - perfect for campfires
With "Expressive Mode" purchase:
- Blues style note bending
- Vibrato control
- Cool "wah wah" effect
- Tilt controls
- Note names display
- Instrument tuning or key selection
A collection of fun songs are provided with the basic free app, and almost 200 additional songs are available for purchase. For our customers' convenience, we also offer an economical "Buy Everything" option - which includes all songs plus Expressive Mode (don't worry, it's really inexpensive, check it out).
Note about auto-rotation: for about 30 seconds after startup the screen will auto-rotate to let you set how you want to hold the device. After that the app's screen rotation will stay locked in your selected orientation, in order to keep it from later flipping upside down when you least expect it during a spirited musical performance. :)

Ratings and Reviews
Honey, listen to me now!
I love this app! I play several instruments pretty well, but harmonica . . not so much. So here is the story. I bought this app and I was playing around with it outside on the porch. My girlfriend was in the kitchen and heard me. Later, When we were eating dinner, she complimented me on my harmonica playing. So here is my problem: do I tell her it was an iPad app she was hearing, or do I let her think I have become a great harmonica player? I decided to tell her it was the iPad. And she said to me, "It was you I heard playing the harmonica. The type of harmonica it was doesn't matter. You sounded great". So, needless to say, I LOVE THIS APP! You will too.
Possible teaching aid
What a great design! I've had the app about an hour and am giving it 4-stars on first impression. I've already upgraded to get the whole songbook.
This app looks like a very good way to learn new songs. The bars that come down the screen, à la Guitar Hero, combined with Demo and the ability to control the tempo speed, look to make a very easy-to-understand method for learning new songs by watching the app and playing your own harp.
Excellent app but...
This app is brilliant and it actually allows you to play harmonica w/ control of breathing and vibrato,etc. but one function I want is to allow us to record the music within the app and export it to Dropbox or other apps. It would be 5 stars once we could use this app in a more productive way instead of just playing. But it is still an amazing app.
