App Description

DRUM PADS PLAYGROUND is an open-source iPad app. It's fun to play simple drum sounds.
Now musicians, students, and kids can explore audio and music coding on their iPads, no computer required!

This app was made entirely on an iPad, for the iPad!
This app store version runs on its own and does not require any coding.

However, the entire source code used to make the app is included.

While a drum pad app may seem pretty simple. It's an exciting beginning to what will be possible on an iPad. Hopefully, all of us can help inspire & make app development accessible to more people. The app was even submitted to the App Store using an iPad.

Create your own app. Impress yourself!
