So it was hard to choose the best one. But GrooveMachine has something special for iOS music. It was the only app that was developed for other platform (it was released for Win 8 touch screen devices) and was not available for iOS. And though it doesn’t have some standard iOS features like Inter-App Audio, Audiobus and AudioCopy, Image-Line, developers of the app, promised to support it in future releases. For the first release their main goal was to make a port from Win to iOS which was not easy, but they made it perfectly without loosing any smallest piece of functionality.
Groove Machine app has good set of samples great sounding synth and nice set of effects. And with Image-Line resources we hope to see future updates pretty soon.
