Pros and cons of Music Studio Lite app for iPhone and iPad

Music Studio Lite app good for

Absolutely fantastic, kept me delighted at every feature I could try since installed ~1h ago. Ill surely buy the full version. Thanks a lot for your amazing competent work !!!
Absolutely incredible. The best app about producing sounds. Definetely the finest jewel between the others.
Finally, a sequencer for my iPhone that isnt built around needless gimmicks or backwards thinking. This software is exactly what Ive wanted since the very first time I saw a smartphone. Its got everything I want, and none of the silly, puzzling innovative revolution in music creation crap that Ive been disappointed by all this time. Im gonna buy the full version if its around ten bucks. Havent seen the price yet
That the best ever app in the world, its touch your spirits with demos music OMG;) thats GOD of apps
Its gr8 an everything, but theres 1 feature I reely want added 2 th lite version; saving ur work. I mean, some ppl dont want 2 spend 15$ on apps, so they get th lite version. But it doesnt matter what th lite version can do unless u can save.
This has to be the essentisl music creation app for the iPad. The breadth and flexibility of this product is amzing. When people were imagining media products that would show off what an iPad could do, this was what they were dreaming about.

Some bad moments

The music studio Is okay but not worth buying if you see in free version. Its not the same as GarageBand because I would suggest GarageBand to you all for worth the money.
No save? If you include save and share then Ill give this five stars... It will be awesome if you had share and save... PLEASE! PLEASE!
Its pointless to test it without being able to load midi files. Developer should enable this feature in demo version.
I have FL studio mobile HD, and really it is so much better. This app also copied their layout. So for totally copying FL, 1 star
Lost the keyboard screen, not obvious how to get back to it. Once I did get back to the keyboard screen it didnt play sounds anymore. Ill give it another 30 seconds before I delete it.
I bought the complete version and it Nevers updated. Want my money back.
