Now you can play mandolin, banjo, and ukulele easily on your iPhone and iPod Touch. Select a chord and strum up and down like with a real stringed instrument to play a rhythm. Won't be painful to your fingers when switching chords and no need to remember all the chord fingerings out there just to play some simple songs. Changing chords is just a tap away. You can fingerpicking the strings as well if so inclined. Four drum kits are include to spice up your music. You can record, save, and playback unlimited loops. Loops can be mixed multiple times with different instruments.

Why Four Strings didn't show up in my many music app searches until now is beyond me. Very playable, nice selection of chord configurations, authentic sounds (the ukulele could use better strings. I use Aquila NylGut). I play guitar and ukulele and enjoy learning other instruments. I strongly suggest adding an "open" button to each of the chord options, and label the strings so beginners know the standard tuning per instrument. I would love to see a fretboard showing the fingering positions per chord in a future upgrade as well. Fantastic app, can't wait to see what else you come up with! HIGHLY recommended!
Of all the instrument simulation apps, this one is my favorite.
Have enjoyed this app for the iPhone but feel the strings should be more sensitive to the touch...
