Makes me a little irate

I like to make recordings with multiple instruments overlapping on the same track, similar to garage band, but with windows media files. Since I don't have an actual drum kit (and a real one would be waaayyy too loud), I decided to download this app. It worked fine at first, could hear each individual drum clearly, fast & responsive to the touch. For my recording, I needed more volume than my device could provide. So I decided to turn on my Bluetooth speaker (SoundPop) and give it a go. At first it worked like a charm! Just the right volume I needed. But the more I played on it, the more the sound was all glitchy. I tried exiting the app and starting it up again. But this time, I was greeted with silence upon hitting the drums and cymbals. I tried turning off the Bluetooth speaker, but there was still silence. Can you please provide an update to get rid of this big? It seems like a cool app, but this major flaw is keeping me from enjoying it.

Pretty Darn Fun

The R-Tap Drums app includes a decent variety of drum sets, including rock, hip-hop, Latin, electric, disco, and two different jazz kits. It also has hand drum options, such as congas and taiko drums. Plus, you can adjust the the reverb, touch response, and loop length to your liking, and it also has a metronome tool where you can set the desired beats per minute (BPM). As for sound, it definitely sounds better through headphones than it does through the built-in iPad speaker, so I would definitely encourage headphone usage for this.
The only improvement I would suggest is that the options could be expanded a bit and include more sets, such as a standard kit or two, a room kit, and maybe even a synth and dance/techno kit. Nevertheless, there is still plenty to choose from here, and it's still pretty fun and addicting.

Loved it Until...

I loved this app. But when I was rocking out to Thousand Enemies from Angel Beats, all of a sudden I was like "hold on... Either I'm dead on the beats or I'm dreaming..." So I paused the song and tried playing the drums, but there was no sound!
A few months later, (actually, it was almost a year) I tried playing along to some songs, but whenever i hit a drum it would make this really quiet glitchy sound, and then a few minutes later it would play the drums i hit. It was EXTREMELY delayed. I'm extremely disappointed, because this was the closest thing I had to drums and now I can't even use it. The one in garage band is okay, but I liked these more because the concept of playing along to songs was a lot more simpler. But now I can't play anything at all, especially when I'm trying to make a recording. Please fix this. Until then, I'm uninstalling the app.

Mode of Express, I am disappoint.
