This app allows you to construct songs by moving objects along a grid. The possibilities are endless and you can loop shapes in different directions to come up with something really eclectic. Of course uber serious musicians may pour scorn on an app which is in someways childlike but there is no denying how fun the app is. You can download a version for free and if you really get into it there is an upgrade where you can grab more shapes and sound kits, the sky is the limit.
