About this game

The Kalimba is an African musical instrument consisting of a wooden board (often fitted with a resonator) with attached staggered metal tines, played by holding the instrument in the hands and plucking the tines with the thumbs. The mbira is usually classified as part of the lamellaphone family and part of the idiophone family of musical instruments.

Members of this broad family of instruments are known by a wide variety of names. The kalimba is also known as marímbula and mbria in the Caribbean Islands.

This app is already amazing! Great resource for kalimba players out there, especially those who don't own one already. The app is a little bit clunky at times, but for something free it has a LOT of functionality and works like a charm. Only major request for the developers is to add a save button (or move it to be visible, I didn't find one) when making a tab, and the keys when playing sometimes don't register. Otherwise it's perfect, no complaints.

I think it is a great app, helps you visualize what you are doing and, it is a very complex thing to create a tablature if you are not instructed in musical theory, so for complete neofites still some extra guidance is needed. Love the fact that u can create midi files and pdf to export, it would be great if u guys make a section with some basics for total beginners.

It was okay. Song choices (tutorial/guide) are super limited (not all are on tune) One of the most usable digital kalimba (I've looked for apps but this is the closest to the actual) as of yet. Downside is you can't save settings with this version and everytime you play, there's ads. Guess it's the developer's way for you to buy the full version. —you also can't exit the app with the back button. Works with home button then task killer—it's a hassle if you'd ask me.
