This app is a messenger for the iPhone with a twist: instead of emoticon smiley faces, it uses so-called “Acousticons”. Created for and played by the Hamburg Philharmonic Orchestra, these little icons give musical expression to a wide range of emotions. Acousticons such as “Amabile” (lovely), “Giocoso” (funny) and “Furioso” (angry) illustrate the respective emotion not only through distinct icons in the shape of notes, but also through full orchestral accompaniment.
