A cheap shot!
The iPad and iPhone versions are sold separately!! That is just plain greed. The cost of both is $30 even though they are the same platform IOS with the only difference being the screen size. Plus the app is just plain ugly. It looks like some old Windows app. To make matters worse, may of the functions and interactions are just plain dump and follow no standard. The app does work and there are some interesting rhythm files. Redesign the interface, fix the bugs, and don’t hide the cost by charging twice as much for both platform and I’ll review again.
Very good but one problem
Great app, does everything and more than I expected. Nice presets which are easily customizable and easy interface. Great for a beginner but also has enough for the experienced musician.
One problem which ruins the app is the export beat feature. The whole point of using an app like this is to lay a beat, then export it to something like Garage Band, Aplitude, or Ampkit. Once fixed, I will change my rating to 5 stars.
Since the program crashes every time I try to copy the file, or just do nothing when i try to add my beat to iTunes, the app has become useless to me. I expected an app that was this expensive to be well developed and continually updated. I know an update just came out but your development team should focus on fixing one of the most important features of the program you already have instead of just adding more and making small tweaks (not that the new features aren't nice).
Great app! As a musician I love creating original beats and then moving them to other applications for further recording and mixing. My only complaint is that the app randomly crashes sometimes. Sometimes it's on playback sometimes it's when selecting a new pattern from the list...seems like a memory issue somewhere (since it's random). I tried it on 2 different iPads with similar results. It's still usable, but the crashes are annoying and sometimes when I re-launch the app it does not save my progress. Please update and I will give it 5 stars.
