This is a really fun app to play!

Steven Reich’s ClappingMusic App is a very hands-on, fun app to be available on the App Store! Not only is the game fun, but it is also very addictive! I can’t wait for more from this amazing app! Through all the hardships, consequences, and obstacles I’ve gotten through this game, I still love that this application is a very challenging obstacle for any individual to play! You just have to have the *ears* for it, of course! :). Otherwise, this game is one of my *favorite* applications that are downloaded onto my iPhone!
Sincerely, Me (Anonymous)! :)

Patterns are incorrect

I’ve love this app for a really long time. I’ve recently come back to it after a year or two away, and I’ve noticed that the patterns are out of order from what the original piece is. The pattern no longer just moves forward by a beat, the order seems arbitrary. You’re not supposed to sync back up with the original clapping until after the 12th pattern, but for some reason pattern seven is exactly synced up with the ostinato clap. Still super fun, but maybe an update along the way made the patterns got out of order.

Finally beat the hard level. Only annoying part are the pop ups asking for a survey that no longer exists
