Designed to aid composing your own music prior to punching the paper strips for Music Boxes, MBC allows you to compose, preview, play, save and share your creations via Twitter, Facebook, Email or iTunes file transfer.
For an example of a shared composition:
Demo of composing, printing, punching an playing:

- Share your compositions with others via Facebook, Twitter and Email.

The physical Music Boxes with the paper punch strips and are great fun - what I found was missing was an easy way to preview either transpositions or original creations. This aims to fill that gap but it's also a fun music creation tool in it's own right.
Rated as a Killer App by Apps4iDevice.
