NodeBeat is a classic, having been in the game for a long time. Great at simple and straightforward generative music. But in 2022, I would really love an update with some new features. Perhaps choosing new samples for percussion for starters? It doesn't do everything but it has a great and straightforward interface. I wouldn't want to clutter it up. But if it could do even just a *little* bit more I'd be using it a lot.

If only, it ran on my most recent Android phone. I've had this beautiful app since Blackberry Playbooks were a thing... seriously. It's a gorgeous beat sequencer that is super intuitive and even an excellent tool for children to explore electronic music. Unfortunately, it is out of date and finally stopped working on my newer Android phone as of 2021.

When I installed the app, I got the message that it may not be compatible with my version of android. Indeed, all I got was a blank screen with no settings, menu, or anything else. Pressing anywhere on the screen gave absolutely no feedback from the app. Uninstalled and refunded immediately. Very disappointed, as I was hoping a special needs student would be able to use this to take part in my electronic music class.
