    Universal MusicMessages! — A Collaborative Sequencer for iMessage

    I'm a believer in oddball ideas, so I made (what I'm fairly certain is) the first sequencer for the iMessage App Store, MusicMessages! The interface is mainly comprised of a grid of buttons, each representing a musical note in time. Tap in a few melodious chords, play back your piece, and send...
