Dropbox still doesn't work!!!


When are you going to fix the issue with The use of Dropbox?! It still doesn't work. Both BeatMaker 2 and 3 doesn't work at all. If you did fix the problem, it must apply to all higher than iPad 2, fourth generation. Every time I try to import my folders and files into BeatMaker 2 it just switches to the Dropbox app to the allow screen and when I press allow,it switches back to BeatMaker 2 App and the Dropbox column never shows up anymore like it use to before the release of BeatMaker 3. The BeatMaker 3 App just never loads up at all so I can import my folders and files. The square icon just does the glow animation and never loads up at all. Why I liked these apps was because I would make my samples on my computer software Acid Pro 7, then send my samples to Dropbox, then import them into BeatMaker app and make my projects. Now I can't do that anymore because the Dropbox feature is still not working. I'm sure it must work for iPad Pro users, but I don't have a Pro yet. Can you please fix this problem for iPad 2, fourth generation use please?

Favorite DAW


BM2 is this best DAW in the App Store for Hip-Hop/Rap & Trap production.
Interested to see what BM3 will be.
Been a rapper for years but started causal production about a year ago to become more self sufficient and stop trying to find people who have studios or make beats(which if you've been in my position you know how much a headache that is🤕)invested over $1500 in a laptop,FL Studio 12,Studio One and an entire home studio set up. Felt overwhelmed and this hindered my creativity. Life happened and I had to sell my keyboard and laptop but in that time came up on a iPad Pro and purchased every major DAW in the App Store(Auria,Cubasis,FLM3,GB & BM2) for a fraction of the price of any major computer DAW(btw) and find myself making more music at higher quality in BM2 & GB(GarageBand being more limiting) on the iPad than I was on my laptop with over $1000 worth of programs.

The best iOS music app hands down

1up getalife

This is honestly the best IOS music app and it's not close. If you get this app all you need is some additional synths, Audiobus, a midi keyboard with an lightening to USB camera connection kit to hook the keyboard to your device and your set. This app is hands down one of the best. Take it from me, an iOS user who has tried many apps over the years including impc and it's not even close. Big time artist like Mannie Fresh use this app which shows how good it is. When it comes to sampling, stability, arrangement, a good UI, and music creation, BM2 can't be beat and it is so good I rarely use my pc these days. Intua made an amazing app with beatmaker 2 and I can't wait to see what the future holds for this company.
