Very helpful. Too bad no updates. Still getting a lot from this app. If you ever update it, any chance you can add a progressive tempo option. Maybe start at 50% and increase 10% each minute? Same with your metronome app.

If your $1.50 is burning a hole in your pocket, you are better off blowing it on gems in Clash of Clans than on this turd (sorry devs, if you charge money for something it had better be quality). While the selection is broad, nearly ALL of the grooves I randomly selected were notated incorrectly. As a professional drummer, my advice is to go to youtube and write down what YOU hear the drummer playing. There are FREE apps on the google play store that are better value than this. Could I please have a refund?
