Great little app, but could be greater..

This app is nicely thought out and laid out, and is pretty usable right out of the box. Just two little additions could make it brilliant though:

1. Don’t stop the shaker playing while you are tapping in Loop mode. It would be good for the tempo to change dynamically while you tap, rather than stopping as soon as you hit your first tap, then needing the Play button to be pressed afterwards. Lots of App Store metronomes work like this.

2. Make better use of the planes of the iPhone’s accelerometer. Currently the app only seems to play the shaker sound if you hold the phone flat in the palm of your hand and move it up and down. I would like to hold the phone edgeways while shaking up and down or forwards/backwards. If it’s hard for the program to look at all planes simultaneously, then have a Settings dialogue that allows you to choose “X”, “Y” or “Z” (or whatever iOS likes to call them).
