Lots of fun

Very clean app that lets you make fun retro sounds. There used to be another Theremin app named “Thereminator” that unfortunately is not compatible with IOS 11. I was very grateful to find this app with similar functionality. Thank you for making this app!!!

What fun!

Reminds me of the time I had a chance to play with an early Moog. Please tell me there’s some way to capture the output...🤔😉😊

Hi jeffm23,

Thank you for your great review. 🙏

If you are using Theremin Touch on an iPad or iPhone (earlier than iPhone 7), you can use a .35mm stereo adapter, right out of the headphone port. If you are using iPhone 7 or higher you will need to use some sort of lightning adapter (like the Apple "Lightning to 3.5mm Headphone Jack Adapter") or over bluetooth. I hope this helps. 
Please feel free to contact me at

Thanks for using Theremin Touch.

Great update

You can adjust the range now which is a great enhancement. The accelerometer control is challenging so far, but allows one handed operation if you’re wanting to operate it while playing another instrument. Well done!
