Create music with Lily, a playful musical experience for people of all ages and musical abilities. *Featured as Apple's App of the Day* Compose a looping melody with each lily and build up interesting harmonies and melodic patterns. Explore polyrhythm by composing looping melodies of different lengths and tempo to create complex musical patterns. Save your compositions and switch seamlessly between them to chain multiple patterns together. Record and share your creations to YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook with Everyplay, or export your recordings as high-quality audio files. • Choose from six lily flowers, each with their own unique sound over three octaves. • Alter the number of petals to create melodies of different lengths. • Select from five musical scales. • Alter the tempo division of each lily to create interesting interplay between the lilies. • Save your compositions and switch seamlessly between them. • Record and share your creations with both video and audio export. Peace.



  • RIP-OFF, NOT USER FRIENDLY &Pushes in-app Purchases

    Was looking for a Relaxing(Not Irritating) app to play around with, making musical compositions—LONGER THAN 6 OR 8 NOTES —this was “PICK OF THE WEEK”—HA!—just a TECHNIQUE TO BOOST SALES I Notice the great reviews are from people who got this app Free a year ago- I assume they got more.... ALTHOUGH—REVIEWERS WHO COULDN’t EVEN GET THE APP TO WORK-HAVE 2, 3, & even 4 STARS ON THEIR REVIEWS- WHAT’S THAT ABOUT?? ***THIS VERSION IS ONLY 4 (or 5)months old*** - Why are most of the reviews shown 1year old?? For $1.99, I got one 6 note Lily Pad (SOMETIMES AN 8 NOTE LILY) that will play those 6 (or 8) notes, OVER & OVER....supposedly there are 6 lilies Somewhere, HAVE NEVER SEEN MULTIPLE LILIES on a screen —as advertised (see pictures of app) ONLY 6 (or Sometimes 8) “note choices” can be made at one time, they “go away”, & 6 more can be chosen....not how I play with a keyboard >> NO TUTORIAL << >>DEVELOPER CLAIMS THERE’s A Save option: “You can save and load your {6 note} compositions in the lily ponds screen, which you will find by tapping the lily ponds button in the bottom right corner of the app.” **THE ONLY Bottom Right Corner “BUTTON” found leads to a screen that’s NOT USER FRIENDLY, AND/OR, OPTIONS WORK INCONSISTENTLY—hard to tell—FRUSTRATING, LIKE REST OF APP. >>It appears that, even if one could (laboriously) compose & then manage to get 6 lilies to play in sequence, The resulting “composition” would contain only 36 (or 48?) An 8 note lily pad Sometimes Appears-when I first Open the app-don’t know where it comes from or goes to —compositions also disappear ... can’t find a Save option anyway... Mostly there’s that (repeating) 6 note composition option 😔💤 .....Would bore a 4 year old Easy to get stuck in the Ad-BUY THIS area. VERY EASY TO PURCHASE MORE. Still not sure where(or if!) there’s a multiple LILY PLAY area .... APP SHOULD ENABLE PURCHASER TO: **Easily PLAY & SAVE WORK—LONGER THAN 6 or 8 NOTES— Should be focus of App **use Controls that work consistently But —ALWAYS EASY TO FIND ADS—- App big on pushing PURCHASES for MORE LILIES 😞 also CONTAINS ADS FOR OTHER APPS☹️ ALSO: CONTAINS (customer)VIDEOS THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO HELP YOU USE APP But—REQUIRES USE OF (burning up of) HI-SPEED DATA PLAN, so I don’t know if any of them teach anything-doesn’t seem hopeful COMMUNITY POSTINGS: —postings read were of no help in using app— HOW TO questions are asked there, but no answers are given Some Compositions are posted--appears hardly anyone viewing or listening to them
  • Lovely design but......

    By avmarko
    Adding ability to export would allow me to rate this quite lovely app 5 stars. Imo, being able to save the audio to files, use it with Audiobus, or export to an iOS daw or other music app is key for me....Sharing a little melody on FB or Twitter is nice for a lotta people, I’m sure but to use this WITH other sounds created from other musical apps is pretty standard nowadays and would be amazing, as the sounds here are super useful and good quality..... All in all, love the sounds and the ability to add layers of melody....Push the app a little more and open the export option and I’ll give 5 stars happily and sing its praises. Update: Due to the developer’s quick and personalized response to some suggestions I had for this graceful app, which I’m sure will now happen, 5 stars.
  • Needs Way to Export Audio File

    By TheWalrusBoy
    I enjoy this app. I have made a few melodies and tunes I’m happy with using this app. I find it a shame that the developers only allow sharing videos of the app to a user community and social networks. I am a career composer and would like the capability to export recorded audio files.
  • Waste of time unless it is for a 2 year old.

    By AbsurdBrane
    Why do I fall for these rip off programs. I wish there were warnings before purchase. Save your money unless you have a 2 year old that just wants to bang on an iPad. Useless. I want my $1.99 back, but it is gone. I need more discipline at the App Store. Do not fall for this junk, I tell myself, but out of boredom I purchase and regret. A waste of money. Good money gone.
  • Simply Amazing~

    By GoldenWolfLink
    I love this app, the melodies you make can be so soothing and calming. And there’s no better way than enjoying the melodies knowing that you yourself made them. I just wish I can purchase the winter pack, every time I do it says to try again later. I hope this will be fixed soon, I really wanna use the music box💕
  • Add landscape mode❣️

  • Too many bugs to enjoy

    I can't even create a new set of lily songs and hear what it sounds like. I feel that it became free app of the week and then it just got let go.
  • This is great, but just a few suggestions.

    By Xx_Ultimate_xX
    This is probably the best music composing games on the internet. But I would like to suggest a few features. To start off with, Most songs have percussion behind them. Sure, you've got the option to make a bass line with all of the different sounds, but there needs to be a little more to it than that, we need some kind of new flower that adds a nice beat to the song. Maybe it could be green. But that's only a suggestion. Another is to have a mode with a completely different layout for some of the more complex people that want to add more to their song than just a simple loop, without going through all the trouble to compose different parts of a song and time the switch just right. Again, these are just a few suggestions, but it would really be cool to see these features added into the game.
  • No tutorial..I should delete, but just can't bring myself to do it.

    By prahl777
    I really want to use this app to relax & destress; the petals are intriguing but can't figure out the horizontal bars. I should delete it; but just can't bring myself to do it yet. I WANT to love this app but how can I when I haven't the slight idea how to use out
  • Great Job Pelican 7!!!

    By BreeLovesMinecraft
    I love the simplicity of making peaceful music on this app, but we should be able to play as many lilies as we want. It does need a tutorial but it is pretty easy to figure out. Anyways overall it is an amazing game and simple app to use maybe to take your mind off stress Idk i love it!!! I don't want to sign up for ever play I hope you understand so can you please add a way to upload it as a video or message it to someone via iMessage. Thank you byeeeee!!!!! -вяєєкιткαт Update: You should make a way to upload voice memos to it and make music for them. I need this 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 Please respond
