"Best 99 cents we've ever spent." - Mac|Life

New version 1.8!

Play the world's smallest violin on your iPhone or iPod Touch.

An indispensable tool - useful for showing sympathy toward another's misfortune, and more!

Select one of three violin sound types (over 15 total sounds):
- Despair - Display sincere condolence with a weeping melody
- Joy - Celebrate the good times with a light jig
- Let's Rock! - Melt your face off with a highly electric riff

You can play Tiny Violin by sliding the bow with your finger, or by shaking your device (be sure to enable Shake To Play).

Can’t hear sound on a first-generation iPod Touch? Try these steps: Go to (1) settings, then (2) general, then (3) sound effects and then
choose “speaker” or “both” (headphones & speaker).

Note that because the first-generation iPod Touch does not have a built-in speaker, you'll need to connect headphones to hear the sounds.

I love this app


I can't believe I didn't hear about this app until now. Works great, all three modes

Like a firecracker, it only goes bang once


You'll get some giggles the first time you shame a whiner by whipping out your "tiny violin" to accompany their pathetic sob story. But you only get to play that card once! Is it worth the price?

Not working


I thought this would be a funny app to use.

When I shake my phone, there's no music. When I turn the shaking feature off, it still doesn't work. Too bad. There goes my dollar.
