A simple, odd and compelling little music maker
It’s hard to really explain what TonePad is without it sounding horrendously dull. Push one of the individual dots on the screen and a sound will start to play. Touch another, and the new beat will match itself
in time with the previous one. Before long, you have a chain of notes ringing out to create music, which can be as charming as it is easy to construct.
For some, the appeal will end here, but those who have a creative flair may find themselves sucked in. Give it enough time to learn how it all comes together and it perfectly possible to piece together a song you had in your head. With the ability to save it and then share your creation with friends, ToneRad could be seen as an inexpensive creation tool. It may lack options, but for what it is the potential is most certainly there. It’s an interesting addition to any iPhone and one that you’ll come back to again and again.
