Tune Cruiser is a new way to explore the iPod library on your device. Tap along with your favourite tunes and increase your score with every tap you hit.
Can you hear the underlying patterns in your favorite songs? Tune Cruiser will put your musical abilities to the test! Import any of the songs on your computer or mobile device, find the beat, and tap your phone along with the rhythm to earn points. Tune Cruiser will change the way you listen to the tunes you've heard a hundred times before and get you hearing them in a whole new way.
Tune Cruiser uses the Echonest (http://www.echonest.com) music analysis API to find the underlying beats in any song you import. Once you start tapping, Tune Cruiser will let you know whether you're finding the song rhythm and your score will increase as you correctly tap along.
Use Facebook to post your best scores and challenge your friends. Tune Cruiser will enable you to discover all sorts of new music- view songs on your friends high score posts and go listen to them yourself. Then tap along!
Supported platforms - iPhone 4 and above.
iPad and iPod will be supported soon.
Feedback welcome. Let us know what will make Tune Cruiser even better when you rate the app.

When it's Good - It's Really Very Good
When it's bad?
When it's Bad? It's ... Time To Try A Different Song!
You can't expect or force this App to analyze your tunes any more precisely -it's kind of hit or miss. I noticed it that responds well to songs with a steady, driving beat. Rock like AC/DC, Def leppard, etc. work awesome.
And you'll know good tracks from bad tracks quickly. So if the beat makes no sense or Music's playing but you see no Beats to tap then just move on.
Dance Track work well too!
My advice is to just stop, try another song and
your music correctly, hut it
My advice to the Developers of this App. Don't much it up!!
Because EVERY 'tap to your OWN tunes' game that I've used seems (some I tested long before iTunes ever saw them) to start fine. Then after several weeks a new 'updated' version is introduced - and it's usually ruined forever.
What almost always seems to be the case with the failed Apps is they ruin the synchronization of the beat and tap.
Even if the beat and the tap aren't always perfectly aligned in this game, it's THE BEST of this genre presently.
I tried a lot of artists/genres and found these worked really well. (AC-DC, The Who, Foo Fighters) My advice then - ?
GET IT - GRAB THIS NOW!!
So close, but not quite.
I love this game. I can play almost any song I want, but with emphasis on "almost." Whenever I try to play Tobuscus's Halo Reach Literal Trailer, the game crashes. If this bug were to be fixed, I would have given this game 5 stars.
This game is Similar to the 'tap tap' games but you can use your own music! It found one that I didn't think it would find, but you can easily upload over Wi-Fi. Very interesting and addicting.
