Sometimes the simplest notions are the best, and – while professional musicians looking for an app fix will undoubtedly want something meatier – the casuals among us will find Sound Cells a captivating little musical diversion. The layout consists of a matrix, comprised of individual cells. Highlight a cell and it makes a noise, which can then reverberate and rebound off adjacent cells to create the ambient, electronic soundscape of your choice. Be warned: Sound Cells is fiercely addictive and may well convince you that, rather than a bored bus passenger fiddling with your iPhone, you are infact Brian Eno or David Toop.*
*You are not Brian Eno or David Toop.
