This is so different from most practice apps; quite innovative. Not to mention, if you like jazz standards, there's something like 250 songs to play along with. I'd like to see more from this guy.
This app is really buggy. It crashes every time I hit stop while playing a song. It also doesn't always save edits made to songs. Hasn't been updated since 2011. Not worth the aggravation.
Back up band not good
It would be a great app except for the fact that the bass plays chords instead of one note. Piano and organ are poor. It is meant for practice but the backing band needs to practice more. Not worth the 14.99
