Pretty good, but...

The new update, while having streamlined a lot of settings that I sincerely appreciate, seems to have its bugs. I have lost the data of several songs, and it appears that the old data was replaced with another song... I effectively have three copies of the same song now. I do love the update, and it has made a whole lot of editing much easier, but it also causes the app to crash much more often. I’m lucky if I can get ten minutes without a crash. I hope very much that these issues are fixed, but other than that, this is a wonderful app!
Beatwave makes music development easier than ever. I personally use beatwave as a place to sketch out a song before I finish it on Logic Pro X or FL Studio. I love the ability to make songs simply by tapping my phone’s screen, and I really hope the bugs from the new update are fixed so that I can get back to business.

Mixed feelings

I was absolutely loving this app and creating fantastic songs until one of the updates from some months ago. I really dislike the new look and I can't figure out how to play a whole song through from beginning to end anymore. But that's nothing compared to what happened next. What's worse is that shortly after the update, The entire app started to refuse to stay open more than a fraction of a second. This means that I have no way of accessing my started songs. I always struggled with how to get them off my iPhone and onto a computer. Had that been easier, I would've made back ups somewhere. I hope that someone reads this and can offer me assistance. I have many unfinished songs that I spent many many hours on. I want to love this app again. I sent an email to the company a few weeks ago but have not heard back.

Great introduction to music making

This app offers both the simplicity to allow those without any music theory knowledge or experience to jump right in and make music that sounds good. The interface is intuitive, though the individual squares can be difficult to pinpoint if your fingers are as far as mine. Even better, there are also enough tools to allow someone with more music experience to craft music as they wish, with a variety of scales, instruments and presets to play with.

While this isn't going to help you compose a symphony (or anything longer than four measures), it's plenty to make some satisfying tunes.

Pro tip: hold down over the grid itself to copy/paste the contents into other grids. This is invaluable in building loops.
