This version contains:
- A fix for the audio in the app. Previous versions paid attention to the mute switch, but this caused a lot of confusion. The app will now play music, even if your device is muted. Don't worry, you can still turn the volume down using your device's volume controls, if you want to play quietly.
- New retina iPad artwork

App DescriptionBaby's Musical Hands is an award-winning musical toy for babies and toddlers for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch.
As a game designer and developer, I love my iOS devices. But as a new father, I realized how much my son loves them too. I decided I could put my experience developing for iOS to use, and build an app for my son to play with. Baby's Musical Hands was born!

Every time your baby touches the screen, colorful stars will burst from their fingers. Watch them delight in the audio and visual feedback!
