Apps have done wonders for music creation, and now there's mobile software from Casio that aims to make it even easier. The Chordana Composer app for iPhone creates a track basked on a melody that you create by singing or whistling two bars of a tune. Casio's handiwork records you, and then automatically builds the rest of the song based on your input. This means that anyone can construct a hit without in-depth music knowledge or the ability to play an instrument. After the base of the song is captured, there's five genres and three melodic settings for the tweaking before hitting the Auto Compose button and putting the app to work.

In addition to the vocal input, Chordana Composer also has a keyboard interface, notation option and MIDI compatibility, so once the song is complete, that score can be fine-tuned. Don't just take my word for it, though, have a listen at the track I composed down below. The results aren't awesome by any means, at least on my first few attempts, but the process is certainly interesting. If you're ready to give it your best Katy Perry impression, the $3 app is available now over at iTunes.
