Ratings and Reviews
This app has a lot of good things going for it, the selection of drums is large and the sound quality is good (for an app). But I have two issues that if corrected would make this five stars for me and they are; when I come off the rim I hear a continuing drum sound that I didn't play ,it's just there?? Second I did the upgrade thinking that would get rid of the ads but an ad for Google maps pops up all the time?
Update the ads went away,I may have spoke to soon on that,sorry, but the drumming that happens and continues after I hit the rim still bothers me and I'm sure that problem can be corrected. Good app otherwise
Regardless of the drum sound that you select, you keep viewing the same 2 hand drums. So if you pick a djembe or other single drums, you will still see the same two drums.
Not what it seems
Not really a free app. If you want the sounds described it requires a $0.99 upgrade. Not a big deal, but something you should know before downloading.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
