I recently took out a years subscription and think it's generally a brilliant app. Two problems I've had though.. The playback of my sitar recording is horrific. Completely gargled, digitally fragmented. Also, the Taal numbers have sometimes gone out of sync with the rhythm.

Thank you for your feedback. The recording quality depends upon the device's echo cancellation capability. While playing TaalMala on speaker, speaker's output feeds back into the microphone (known as acoustic echo) and eventually mixes with your Sitar, causing problems. Some devices provide good echo cancellers, most don't. Use headphones.

After using the app (purchased all features) for a while I found many issues, 1. The taal and matra indicator goes out of synch often. This hapens when you increase / decrease tempo from their default setting. 2. The app hangs/ freezes while playing. 3. I am getting memory full error while application is running. 4. It would be better to have a GUI for swarmandal rather than user coding it for swar and matras. Drop down and selection will help. 5. Inbuilt thekas have wajan in varying matras.

Continuously shows "low memory, try disabling preloading" kind of message. Changed to a higher end phone but no respite. Bought a licensed version but still the irritating message persists. Both these phones have so many apps running without any complaint ( BTW I closed all running apps and gave taalmala the liberty to use entire memory but still it is not happy) R U guys expecting a supercomputer to run your tiny app?
