    "emoji synth" caught my buzzword eye but I have no idea what that means. Explain?

      It's a super simple sequencer, using emoji (and all the semiotics that go along with them) to represent the set of samples making it fast and super fun to create rad soundtracks.

        Yup, that's pretty much it. We wanted to keep it simple for people to make music or soundtracks for their Bytes, so we used an input interface that everybody is already familiar with. There are a few twists though: try tapping an holding to access the advanced note controls. There you can swipe up or down to change the octave or add 1/4 subdivisions of each step. Or from the sequencer view, swipe left to add more to the composition.

    Has anyone really like this? I'm curious how you usually use this and the purpose

    http://byte.co/~ray-passion I think that link, entitled "graphic design is my passion" says it all.

      In his defence it says 'graphics design' Which suggests that maybe it's a joke, that's gone over our head?

    This app is such a blast. I have no clue what to do on it but it's really fun to just create. Reminds me of how I felt about Line Rider when I first discovered it.

      That's what I find so exciting, UX wise, about it. The act of creation is so joyous...
