    This synth app has a new approach at making music that leap frogs all other typical methods of music creation.

    My major complaint is that the circle limit is so low. Just when I start getting a loop to where I want it I run out of circles. It's really frustrating.

    Even for a total Music newb like me it was fun, but I'd love to be able to save my music as a ring/notification tone. I'm a geek, so I can manage, but I'd prefer to be able to do it in one step.

    What about adding circle to circle line bending... allowing people to bend the note at a varying time?

    Love the 'tilt affect the sound' bit. Does what it says, what's next?
