    The beat count is still out of synch in v 1.11. I can't reach the menu on Asus tf 300! Can't hear tin tin ta Ta in madya drut. Sound shouldn't stop when one changes tempo! But so many nice features!!

    About time we had something like this for Android. Good job but keep on improving! There is a bug. When I select Farodast and switch from madhya to madhya vilambit it switches to ada chautala and Farodast disappears from the menu. Please fix.

    I updated with new version but the individual volume for all four category are not too much convenient. Not working easily. Also played new taal garba once and it disappeared from list. Need more to do.

    I can not differentiate between the first and ninth beat in drut teental. This confuses me during my vocal practice. Just a piece of "Traka dhin dhin na" in the last four beats (as in the madhya teental) will do. I hope you will correct it in your next version. But overall it is a good software for tabla and tanpura.
