Best music app, could be better

I love the simplicity of this app. My favorite thing about this app is the sounds and how easy it is to use this, kids can play and understand this app. I also love how you only pay $1.99 to unlock everything instead of those crazy apps who make you spend $9.99 a month for no ads or currency. I love how the animals and plants look, I love their sounds, but there are a few things that could make this app better. First of all, the bear and Sasquatch noises could be changed; the amount of days or areas you get in one slot should be more than four at least ten. There should be a way to delete a whole slot or day with a button instead of individually deleting each character. There should also be more themes like the city even though the apps theme is nature. Finally, I think you should add more themes with animals and plants from different parts of the world.

This app takes some concepts from older visual sequencers like iSequence or PixiTracker and takes it to a whole new level, as well as becoming the best kids music app overnight. The sound environments concept is also great (and people are going to be demanding add-ons soon). My only suggestions would be support for song uploads and sharing - you could really build a user community the way other apps like Figure have done. Song export would also be good - those save slots fill up fast! Then maybe some kind of editor for duplicating patterns would help with sequencing longer songs. The list could go on (MIDI/Audiobus?) but this is after all a kids app and already does it’s job very well. While there are plenty of sequencing apps out there for grown-ups (notably Auxy), my guess is that a lot of adults will have a lot of fun playing with this one too!

I’m always looking for a music making app but I’m always disappointed with what I find but this app completely exceeded my expectations! Not only are the sounds great but for once it’s not just a bunch of square buttons that make the sounds; it’s the animals and plants that make the sounds! that was a really creative decision and it worked out really well. And there are so many animals to unlock (if you don’t just unlock everything right away) that I’m never really bored of this app! I only gave this four stars because I feel like this can still go further. I think it’d be cool if you could also unlock an animal by sharing a song with other people who use the app and if they give it a thumbs up or something, you unlock an animal. Or you could trade animals with friends. Eitherway, this app was amazing and I’m so glad I stumbled upon it
