This fun app is our homage to the original pocket synthesizer (Stylophone™) which was actually invented by Brian Jarvis way back in 1967! (This is how Grandpa would've impressed the chicks back in the day ;o)
Whether you're a seasoned musician or relegated to the wannabe camp, Styleyfone is actually a great and compact way to keep your ear in shape. Features include:
• Vintage monophonic synthesizer.
• 2 voices (organ & vibrato) as per the original.
• Ability to play along with iPod.
• Plus, some example riffs'n'tunes to get you started.
Our goal was a back-to-basics means to help you pick out songs by ear. So whatever your regular instrument of choice, this is a convenient back-up, to help you continue learning. (Easier than carrying your cello everywhere you go).
If you hit a bum note whilst you're figuring things out, who cares? Just slide your finger until your ears stop cringing and you're back in business. (Much like a stringed instrument in that respect).
Stylefone is a great way to pass the time on ya daily commute and have a little fun! Tho' we would recommend that you wear headphones, whilst learning a new tune. Lest you incur the wrath of fellow passengers. (Oh...and don't forget to get off at your stop)

Ratings and Reviews
This is a great app. It plays just like the stylophone, but it has built in song lists to play. That is, it give you numbers to play in order to learn hit songs like ghostbusters. Hope you don't have fat fingers though.
Would be nice if you could record songs and make the keyboard bigger, but it definitely has the 9-volt charm of the original.
Wanted to try an app before buying the real thing. Super cool App, I hope they upload more songs to play.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
