Superb app but...

The iPhone version lacks several important features available on IPad, like automation, custom kit, individual tracks export etc. I really hope the developers will include those features for iPhone as they’re really important

Nice kits

Great kits but needs to be AU3

Unreasonably good app. In the top 4 on all iOS for me.

Love this app. It’s great, don’t dilly dally. Just get it.

I can’t find a way to contact the dev so I’d like to ask for a feature here.

The bpm controls are laid out in a less than ideal way and limit how I’d like to use the app.
Could the folks of fingerlab consider making some feature enhancements?
I’ll try to break it up into priority. If it’s a big deal but you’re up to it, maybe revamping it could be an option?

The most vital change to improve usability is the bpm resolution. 1bpm increments is way too course, 0.1 would be a step in the right direction but 0.01 is preferable.

Second is the bpm slider. What I’m about to ask for may be redundant after my next request/suggestion.
Can we either set to bottom of the bpm scale 60 and upper to 200? Or allow the user to set those points?

Next one could be prohibitively cumbersome to implement, but I’ll ask anyway.
Would it be possible to put a technics style pitch fader along the side of the global UI? -8% to +8% would be very cool, but bpm change is perfectly serviceable. (Perhaps redesign the transport to include play pause, tap tempo, bump up and down and a fader along the right side of the UI? More specifics below.)Maybe hide or ghost it most of it but try to use the whole screen’s length? A pitch bump ‘up’ and ‘down’(like on digital mixing controllers) would complete this and allow me to use this app for live performances.

And finally a ‘tap’ bpm feature would round this off to being a easier tool to play with.

I love this app. I use it as an example when I’m showing my musician friends how powerful and useful iOS can be for making fresh and exciting music. Keep up the work fingerlab, you’re great and all your apps are beautiful and functional.
Thank you.
