What's New in Version 2.4.0
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.
