The best Bongo app period!


This app is by far the best bongo app available for the serious percussionist. I've tried all the other bongo apps, and they are a waste of time. This app was obviously designed by drummers, and it shows from the graphics to the incredibly realistic sounds. I've even plugged in my iPad and used the app for coffeehouse gigs.
If you are a drummer, this is the app to get.

Ads! Ads! Ads!


You like ads!? You've got the app for it!

You like bongo drums? Find another app.

You can tap a bongo once or twice but hideous ads pop up constantly, you cannot keep any rhythm going, or play along with anything, because of the ADS!

So, because you can't play more than like two seconds at a time, it's an absolute waste of time.

There's a free app called Real Drum, which has bongos, and other drum sets, for free, and you are not deluged with ads. I hate pop up ads worse than anything, and I understand advertising pays for the free stuff, but to put it in the middle of what you are doing, rather than on the top or bottom, well it defeats the purpose. Know what? I can't read the ads, because I deleted the app. Pointless!!!

So much fun

Dj Taina

If u are just a beginner or a professional this app offers you an Opportunity to learn or perfect your skills. I enjoyed very much, easy to use and I love the play along with my library songs.
