What's New in Version 1.1
Improved real time performance and playback of songs. Bugs fixes.
Love the app, but it crashes often
This app really deserves 5 stars because of the wonderful demos and interface, but it seems to slow the iPod to the point where the iPod shuts the app down by itself. When listening to the demos, my iPod will freeze and return to the home screen sometimes. I have a second generation iPod touch with all OS updates installed, so the lagging and freezing MIGHT be caused by the weaker processor in the 2nd gen compared to the 3rd gen, if so, it would be great if the app could somehow require less processor power. It would be nice to be able to listen to the demos without the app crashing so often :) thanks!
The sound is nothing like the sound of a marimba and it gets worse the lower octave you play. I wanted it to be fun, but the sound is so horrible -- the tone so unmusical -- that it is truly irritating to play. The visual design and keyboard layout is fine. Fix the sound samples and you'd have an app worthy of the name "iMarimba."
Looks great, sounds great, plays great. Definitely worth the .99 cents.
