Ratings and Reviews
Leaned about the app. from our 7 year old grandson. Lots of fun to engage in with him. Not a "game"; you can take turns creating music or create music together.
Great for anyone who wants to experiment with music
Having quit violin at a young age, I never would've thought I had it in me to write music, but I've surprised myself with the kinds of tunes I can make from fiddling with the notes in this app. My 11-year-old brother is in love with it too--he doodles patterns on the sketchpads and they come out quite harmoniously in sound! There is, I've found, a surprisingly high correspondence with what looks good visually and what sounds good auditorily. Though the app says it's geared toward kids, I highly recommend it for anyone who is curious in experimenting with music or has nurtured secret musical ambitions that are waiting to find a channel!
Very functional & well designed app
If you're looking for a quick way to make music that's easily scalable, look no further. There are a lot of apps in this field which make music, but oftentimes they're too complex for the average person who just wants to play around and make some funky beats.
I like this app because you can easily make a time while waiting for a bus but also spend a bit more time and make something really nice. The interface is cute and lends well to being that app you give to your kids or your siblings when they ask to "play on your iPhone".
Overall, highly recommended.
