Fun to play
Only reason why I gave it 4 Stars is because I would like to have the option to learn to play songs on it. But otherwise it’s fun to play. I think I like the tubes the best.
Loaded & fun
Clear sound, with good vibe tone, too. Adjustable scale, so you can tune with others if playing in a group. Demo songs, but also a way to enter your own demos and add them to the mix. Don't miss the tutorials, which are not clearly marked (look under options). Good job on those! Best of all is the ability to record your songs and play back. This is missing in many of the better musical apps, so I was pleasantly surprised to find it here. I review a lot of apps, and am often a tough critic. Here I found a lot to like and very few things that needed fixing. One silly "oops" is the "B" note marked with "H" instead. A minor fix.
This app gives a lot for 99 cents. If I had known it was this decent, I would not have minded paying more. Good job. Fun app.
worth the money
This app delivers as promised. the user interface is intuitive and notes sound immediately when played. nice job!
