SoundBow is an interesting Android app that turns your smartphone into a virtual “stringed” instrument. Designed by Agoston Nagy, Soundbow allows you to create music from your phone by simply drawing curves on the screen, which will be translated into euphonic sounds. Each curve creates a different sound every time a digital string is plucked. The strings may also be moved and rescaled to produce different notes for varied effects.

Watch SoundBow in action in the video below:

SoundBow is available for free on Google Play.
