Digital music has come a long way since their initial tries on smaller portable devices. Music apps can be more than playing an song that was loaded from iTunes. Music apps can range from instruments to music sheets. Audio recording can be included in this category. The instrument apps have a realistic sound that could be substituted for a real instrument.
