Sounds like a horizontal version of Thumbjam, with a keyboard though.

Something that really bothers me with any music app is the developer not putting up a demo on their website. If I could just hear it and see it in action then I might buy it .... but without that .... I'll have to wait for user reports, not the often bogus early iTunes reviews but the ones from my here or from my friends.

Totally Agree.

Yep, that's usually a tell-tale sign that the app probably sucks, pardon my language. You can also sometimes tell when there are less that 5 screenshots-- what are they hiding???

In the case of this one, the poor graphic design is also an indicator to stay away. For $4.99, you're just $2 away from a full featured amazing app like ThumbJam, so why be burned? This appears to be another newbir developer possibly in over their head, and pricing their app about $4.99 too much.

I'm all for supporting up and comers, but I also have to call'em like I see'em...

I emailed the developer regarding the lack of a video and he sent me a promo code. I'll give this some time today and post my opinion.

Really like to know what you think Marlene

Not worth $5.99. This really isn't bringing anything new to the table for apps such as this other than the help in finding the right notes for various scales, which is cool. You can record a set but you can't take it anywhere .... I'm spoiled I guess. I'm also experiencing a little bit of latency so I'll probably be removing this from my valuable iPad real estate.

Thanks .... was waiting for your quick thoughts. I am also getting rather particular about which apps I keep onboard. And for this type of app, I don't know how Thumb Jam could possibly be uprooted!
