What’s New

Version 1.1

This app has been updated by Apple to use the latest Apple signing certificate.

You can finally save and load your phrases - thanks for your patience! We designed a new way to save that is all about your creative flow. Save as many variants as you like, then scroll through your history and listen to your creations - all without ever breaking the beat.

We fixed some bugs and audio popping. Jamming on chords in real time, while the music is paused, sounds much smoother now.

By (sorta rude) request, we also added an opt-out of sending anonymized app usage info (this information helps us fix crashes and understand how people use the app, and is used in aggregate - never to identify or track you personally). You can opt out in the Rhythm pane of the Settings app.

A good App Store rating or review means a lot to us and encourages new people to give the app a try. If you like Tin Pan Rhythm, please rate it!

Intelligent & satisfying design is a direct path to creativity

This team knows what they are doing. Simple and effective design that delivers, informs, and gets out of the way of creative flow. Beautiful to see and use. Since it looks like new basic features will be added, we hope that they can continue their successful trajectory without interfering with the flow. Thank you, guys!

Re: Sept 2015 update
A salute to this excellent product, once again. The team has kept their promise to deliver a way to store each new musical sketch without interfering in creative flow. Works simply and effectively. Nicely done! To potential buyers: theses folks know what they're doing. Of course, now they've raised their own bar. . .

Great composition tool

The recent addition of the save feature makes this an indispensable tool for developing simple chord progressions. It's limited to 8 bars and 10 chords (related to selected key), so you won't be writing an entire song in one phrase, but you can easily sketch out ideas.

Great Start

I love the interface and soothing sound choices that Tin Pan Rhythm offers. As a music teacher I'd prefer if there was more information about the different choices as in style, timbre because there are so many choices the numbers assigned to each don't mean much. This app will allow my special need students to participate in harmony composition and then improve along to it. I hope the company adds on to this framework.
