Does the world need another “shake your iPhone” app? Steven Barnegren thinks so, with his Shaker Box offering for iOS-based devices.
Shaker Box offers a variety of professionally-recorded percussion samples plus three modes: shake mode, tap mode and loop mode.
“Shake” does what you’d expect. “Tap” will play a shaker-sound in time with your tapping. “Loop” plays a shaker loop at the tempo you tap in.
Features include “precise shaking recognition” and both 3/4 and 4/4 time signatures. What’s more, it’s free.
I’m thinking this app will work better on the smaller Apple devices such as the iPod touch and iPhone. It could be rather difficult shaking the iPad around like a piece of percussion.
