Lumiappaday #218: Toy Xylophone demoed on the Nokia Lumia 900

| June 20, 2012 | Reply

Toy Xylophone is a children’s app that simulates, well, a toy xylophone. You’ve got a multicoloured one and a wooden one, both can take multitouch input of up to four points (though fitting four fingers at a time, even on the 4.3″ Lumia 900 is a task).

There’s a mode to let the xylophone play a song on its own. You can mute it so you can tap yourself and make the sound. You can change the tempo of the song (making it slower helps if you want to learn it).

Ideally, it would make a proper learn function whereby it waits for you to get the right keys first before going to the next one (there are similar apps that do this).
