The number of smartphones and tablets is increasing a year after year which only means one thing: People love them. As a result, there are mobile applications about almost anything you can imagine.
Nowadays, almost every web/computer software has a mobile version. It became a crucial thing for any software company or website to have a version that runs at least on one mobile platform (Android/iOS) if they really want to make their clients happy.
The same rule applies on beat making software.
Today, there are hundreds of beat maker apps available in both stores. In this article I’m going to talk only about android beat maker apps. You can check iOS beat making apps here
The majority of these apps are just for fun and they’re more like games.
But, some of them (check the list below) have some really advanced options that can help you create a decent beat in minutes.
I’m not saying that beat maker apps are an alternative for computer software (at least for now).
However, they’re fun and if you really love making music I bet you’d want to have an app that does that on your phone.
