"Addictive - Like a Deep House or Techno version of Brian Eno's Bloom and Trope apps. Uptempo ambient for headphones at work. Kids love it, too. One of the best generative music apps I've found." - Top Review
"This is a great app. Experienced musicians and laypeople alike can enjoy their music within seconds." - AppAdvice.com
"Another bold step forward in iPad musical devices, which turns networks of nodes into bumping beats." - Belinda Lanks - Fast Company's Co.Design
"Relaxing and Fun. If you’re the sort who enjoys playing with meditative toys like tabletop Zen sand gardens, you’ll probably enjoy this relaxing and visually appealing sound app." - Gianna LaPin - 148apps.com
"More than anything, it’ll be a calming oasis in the chaos that is a typical day in a modern city. If it all gets too much, as it inevitably does, just plug in your earphones and sculpt some sounds by moving around the nodes on the screen, simply making music and letting the ambient chimes wash over you. Until your boss tells you to stop messing around and get back to work, that is." - Kevin Holmes - thecreatorsproject.com
"If you like generative, reactive or ambient music- Nodebeat is a vital addition to your app collection. It is easily on par with the likes of Bloom, Slewpi, Aura flux, Curtis, Reactable and the rest and is super user-friendly...You can get lost in this ambient world for hours if you are just into playing at home, but if you are part of the new wave of live performers that are using iOS devices for live performances then you too should grab this app! You will astound your audience with mesmerizing spaced out grooves like never before!" - Zac Laurent - www.evolutionarymusic.org

For the price, instabuy
More fully featured than many other generators costigg twice and three times as much. Great approach to having movement being a feature to turn on and off. I love being able to send other nodes flying around and keep generators anchored. The key selector/chord generator is second to only one other app I have. For the price cannot go wrong.
Awesome and easy
Been using nodebeat for more than a year and the more I explore its capabilities, the more I'm impressed.
It's basic functionality is intuitive, sounds great and enough to own this app. Dig further into it and you may be pleasantly surprised, as I was.
Fun and creative app
Lots of options. Easy to use interface. Options to make your own music, record and share OR simply let it play on its own in the background.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
