Lack of Instructions/function in Editing Rhythm Pattern

Let me start of saying that my intent and use of this appl was to improve my strumming rhythm technique. So when I found a planet waves for tempo it led me to believe this was the appl that was going to fit my need. I purchased the first release of the appl and was able to use it with limited instructions provided. I was able to edit and create a rhythm based on quarter and eight note strumming but as far as I could tell there was no way to edit sixteen note strumming. Then I saw an update from planet waves yesterday on the appl and was hoping that they were able to add that functionality. With hopes on high I dl the appl. Unfortunately either I dont know how to use it or they removed it I can not create a rhythm pattern based on quarter/eight/sixteen. In my pursuit to look for instructions on their website I was unable to locate. In fact their FAQ doesnt even include the TEMPO appl. I like the fact they Planet Waves is trying to improve and providing updates I wish they would spend some time to do more documentation at least I can tell what the appl is capable of or not capable of and in this way expecatations would be leveled from the consumer.

Great design. Even better music utility!

This app has always been my go to for tempo training and mapping. The new design makes it feel even more accessible. Love it!

D'Tempo app, used to be useful.

This app needs an update, it crashes on startup and doesn't work at all. It used to work fine but no more, please fix it soon.
