What is it? Beatwave lets you make amazing music simply by tapping. The app contains a grid of squares which you can light up to start making ethereal, relaxing melodies that can be easily changed or customised.
Why do we love it? Beatwave is a very visual app as you can create bright, dynamic pictures through the squares at the same time as composing your melody. This multi-sensory aspect allows you to draw interesting pictures and explore how they translate into a piece of music.
