I downloaded this and ielectribe and they are surprisingly different animals, given that they are both beat boxes. The different feel comes from the sound engine. ielectribe is synth based but Electrify is sample based. I normally prefer the synth approach but by including sample start, pitch, and decay, in the modulation options Electrify becomes capable of producing some interesting sample mangling. With sample looping turned on you can produce some interesting artifacts and the individual pattern length per part is also useful.

It needs resampling, some form of copy and paste to and from other applications, and more control and automation of effects but as a first stab it's looking good. (A manual would be nice. It's actually pretty easy to work out but just remember to create your project at the start!)

I think I'll be using this a lot more than the electribe as I like the workflow and the wide sound pallete.

(Support from it's creator has also been swift which is a good sign.)
