Masayuki Akamatsu Mini-Composer, Free
Compatibility: iPhone, iPod touch and iPad (requires iOS 3.0 or later)

This ‘fun’ app was created by Masayuki Akamatsu and ex-Kraftwerk man Karl Bartos. It offers four synth waves (saw, triangle, square and sine) and you can create music with them using the 16-step sequencer. There’s also a drum track. Although the app is free, if you enjoy it, the developers suggest that you make a donation to help the people of Japan via The Red Cross.
