  • Thanks for keeping it simple (so rare these days)!! Sep 21, 2020

    Tried several kalimba apps, most of them are made to be like a video game and IMO loses the relaxing spirit of this simple and beautiful instrument... But this one is JUST RIGHT. Love the clean interface. What’s more, the sound is really good and the playing experience is pretty realistic. Since this app has the feel of a real instrument, I’d really like to have some additional ting configurations that are less common, such as the 21-note kalimba (I’ve often wanted to reach just a few notes lower than C4 to play certain songs), or the “lotus” tuning which I’m also curious about.

    I love this already with so many customization for the kalimba, but there's only one thing bugging me. The force landscape mode did not affect the invert portrait mode, so when I'm tilting my phone's notch downwards (invert portrait mode) the app will tilt to a portrait mode to (not invert). Idk if this is a bug? but a full landscape mode would be great regardless what way I'm tilting it. The rest are great and I will gladly support you if there's any way to!

  • Pro tip: Switch your phone off silent Jul 30, 2020

    I was going insane because I couldn’t hear the music I was supposedly creating, but 100% user error — I just had to physically switch my phone off silent! This app is beautifully designed and I am looking forward to playing around and maybe actually learning a song. It’s already helped with my anxiety and fidgeting. My only suggestion would be to make it rotate so I could play it while holding the phone naturally, instead of landscape only.

    It's quite adorable! Very minimal and simple to use. I like the customization options and the little :-) that changes expressions. The sounds are pleasant and realistic although I don't have a kalimba so I'm not entirely sure! Thanks for making the app free and also ad free.

    I love, LOVE the design of this! It's so simple yet elegant. The fact that the colors, the tines, the labels are all customizable is such a big plus! I've used this to practice some songs when I'm away from my physical kalimba and its such a big help. The smiley face is my favorite and everything just comes together for a relaxing and amazing app to use. The recording feature is so cool but I have yet to figure out when to use it myself. Thank you so much for this :) 💛

    soo my knowledge on music theory is little to none and i'm playing the kalimba for fun using the number sheets. it's so cute and entertaining. this app makes it easier for beginners since the settings are quite simple. the only down side so far is not being able to record and download what you play, it'd be really great!

    For some reason it has an echo that is so loud that I can't play it properly, I wish this can be fixed because on my ios device it runs so smoothly and I love it. Edit: Waiting for the update. 😊

  • Fantastic sound, needs key features Aug 5, 2020

    By No real Functionalty
    This is a fantastic sounding instrument. Whomever did the samples crafted them with love and care and it just sounds beautiful. It’s also very accessible and easy to hand any beginner and give them instant gratification of playing an instrument. The frustrating part is it lacks a couple of features that would let it be usable by a lot more musicians. I’m sure this app would be used professionally (or more often) if it had auv3 support. If not that simple midi input controls could be a quick workaround. Also it should be easier to play sharps and flats or the entire scale. I get it that doing so may not match the spirit of the original instrument, but letting it be played with some kind of keyboard while maintaining that great sound would really be cool.
