GarageBand app reviews

  • Most great but with some caveats 3/5

    By Artorthegreat
    I love GarageBand and I’ve been using it for years and there have been some issues every here and there but one major issue keeps me from using this as much as I would love to and that’s the Bass Guitar. If you’re trying to strum one note over and over again there’s no sustain and the note constantly cuts short each time you strum the string because there’s no option to allow the note to ring out unless you switch to the piano with The Bass instrument setting and select the sustain on the piano. This would be great to use when I’m coming up with music at work or out and about drumming and piano is fantastic but if I want to include the Bass guitar then the only way to get it to sound good is to go home and plug my bass guitar into my iPad and record the notes that way. I’d love to see this issue fixed so we can see how great GarageBand can actually be.
  • Best ever 4/5

    By üijh
    Ok so this is the best music game I played and I think it’s great maybe add some more instruments and packs?? All I’m asking for is thay
  • Wow trash! 1/5

    By GettBetter
    So you have this counter on the corner of your app… any chance you want to finish the ones and zeros so I can make it go away?
  • Looks Good 5/5

    By HaydenCraft2008
    Hey Um this is short and Un important but can you change your logo back to one of the original ones with the brick background? I am asking this because ever since you “Reblanded” your logo it has really fit in with its name I feel that an app should look like what it’s corresponding name is this is a short review and you may not read this but I am giving it a go
  • The loading on the iPad needs some work 5/5

    By poop😭😭😭😭😭😭bad reaport
    When you load it it takes like a few minutes and normal things don’t take that long so if you can make it shorter!!!!!!
  • Normalization 5/5

    By Creator Veeto
    My only complaint is the normalization function which literally makes all my mixes TOO LOUD. Make it optional or simply take it out. The limiter provided is more than enough. Thank you.
  • Can’t find it 1/5

    By wder15243
    Had it. Didn’t work well, mostly me. Now can’t find it unless I go to the store to open it.
  • Good 5/5

    By Reznor333
    Good and Bad all are the same right
  • Great app, but, needs some changes. 5/5

    By Dj Thunder bomb
    This is a phenomenal music production app! But, I’ve been wanting to post my songs on social media platforms. I feel there should be an option to do that. Please consider this.

  • garage band is bad 1/5

    By milkchunk
    this app is not intuitive at all, and is very limited.
  • Why is it always no core audio 2/5

    By FuryRTR
    I am trying to input a song that I have mad into my phone but yet every time I do it, I get the error message, “No core audio found.” Please fix this problem because it’s driving me nuts.
  • Oh my gosh 5/5

    By murdog 366
    This is amazing I recommend this game for rock lovers
  • Help! 5/5

    By Will Bonk
    Before I got my iPhone 12 (previously had an 8) I was able to stop the music instantly by holding down the screen hard enough under the FX column…if that makes sense. Is there any way for you to bring that back or do I have to use my iPhone 8 for GarageBand?
  • pretty good 5/5

    By The Awesome Family
    But one thing that is missing the overdriven guitar
  • Flossymay 5/5

    By flssymay
    Don’t know a lot about this
  • Really good until you have to update 1/5

    By Rebbecka J.
    You can not use this app after several updates. I hate it now and can’t stop the download in progress

    By ninjagurl90
    Ito keeps saying something is playing in the background and it stops the app from making sounds or noises WHEN NOTHING IS PLAYING IN THE BACKGROUND ALL MY APPS ARE CLOSED EVERYTHING STILL IT DOES THAT please fix it

  • Great Apple IOS Music App. 5/5

    By Cyan Fan
    Makes you make great songs.
  • So, Apple got to you... 1/5

    By SleeplessinSC
    Can no longer save songs. Guess Apple is afraid they’ll miss $1.00. Used to be a good app to make ringtones out of a song. Totally bummed that you changed! ☹️
  • Great until… 2/5

    By StarkWolvie0214
    It just stops working after a few updates. Before the new Home Screen came in, the application was perfect. As of now, my songs automatically get deleted for no reason. I checked the cloud and they weren’t there either. Thankfully I have them saved in an audio player, however this REALLY needs to be fixed. My songs never came back when this happened, and I lost all that hard work I put into them. There’s also a very small chance that this application will bring them back, so this really needs to be a thing planned for you guys. :/
  • Good 5/5

    By DRiner
    It’s a free app so no complaints you know if I had to pay for it then I could find one or two complaints but it’s a free app so it’s not like I can complain.
  • Make a drum pad and work on the velocity 4/5

    By uuikkjgcdfbkdmdknzbab didj
    It is very annoying when you’re recording something in the velocity half the time is low and you have to raise each and every individual one up and it takes so long and it’s very annoying work on that please and make drum pads to where you can make a custom kits yourself from your files into one
  • Good 4/5

    By kitty pridw
    I think it has a lot of creativity but there isn’t a lot for vocal
  • garage band 5/5

    By Taybug666
    It took a long time to download but it was worth it
  • iGarbage band 1/5

    By Emag126

  • Please add Georgian or Celtic Bagpipes 5/5

    By nilikusha
    Hello ^_^ I've Been Using This App for a long time. i really like everything bout it but... there's one thing that i wanna ask you guys:) Can you please Add Georgian Bagpipes (Chiponi) or maybe Celtic Bagpipes? If you will, then i'll be very thankful! P.S. i like your new update ❤️
  • So bad 1/5

    By Evan The dude
    Doesn’t let you pick your ringtones you want
  • The metronome is awful and you can’t set it up and it keep the settings 3/5

    By Alexx830
    I wish you could set it up and it would be ready every time you use it. You have to turn off the metronome, set it to record more than 8 bars, then readjust all the settings every time you record. I mean, am I the only one who is annoyed by this? Probably not. I’d pay for this program if these options were available
  • Highly recommend 5/5

    By hip internet knolege man
    Easy. Simple. Amazing -New York times
  • It was good, until… 3/5

    By Colt with a Colt
    Garage band was good when i used it, but something happened. Garage band wouldn’t let me use the instruments, no matter what i used. It was my best music app that i had, now it’s unusable. Please fix it asap!
  • Amazing 5/5

    By cha cha stinky
    It’s cool
  • Please fix this app. 4/5

    By rimof24
    I love to use this app. But there are times where it stops because another app interrupts it, and I’m not using any other apps when using garage band usually. Please fix this problem so I can have more fun with it.
  • Stopped 4/5

    By shut up with the names
    Okay I absolutely love it especially the different kinds of instruments 🎸 that you can play. HOWEVER this game seems to be obsessed with stopping the sound. it says it’s been interrupted by another app and I already closed all of my other games. Enough with the hate this game is soooooooo big hopefully that’s why it kept stopping if you’re a music lover I highly recommend it .😊
  • ehh 5/5

    By your weirdoo
    this is horrible
  • iGarage Band Review for iPhone 1/5

    By Sabatino Soul
    Garage band songs on iPhone never stay loaded. You must download songs each and every time you want to play them and must be on the Internet. Whereas, on the ipad, you do not have to do this. You can play the songs on the iPad whether you’re online or off-line.
  • No Word to say about this app 5/5

    By dgzbhyrh
  • Confusing 1/5

    By Kajfhdbs
    Bruh i can’t even download it. it won’t let me it keeps saying loading and waiting for days. i dont know what’s wrong with it but it needs to be fixed bc i have plenty of storage in my phone.
  • This app is so good and helpful 5/5

    By Taelor Treece
    I am using this app to make music and make my favorite songs from TikTok my alarm.
  • Good music app, great everything 5/5

    By hitherehellohowareyoudoing
    I love this app, the soundfonts are nice, the drums are sick, but one minor problem is that when you try to copy and paste a track or voice recording into another song, you just can’t do it. But like a month ago you could, I just want you to fix this because I have many tracks and voice recordings that I would like copy and paste into other songs, so PLEASE fix this. Thank you!
  • Good 5/5
