I hate it 1/5
By flip this nickname system
It doesn’t have enough instruments and it’s hard to do anything
It’s a good a for music 5/5
It’s a great app where you can make music a get good
I’m using the Ringtone maker app and it requires GarageBand to create the tones. That app has a instructions set which shows you a “Share” tile in the header, but it isn’t available for the next steps.
Any chance of a brilliantly designed version of the app that’d work together seamlessly??
Pretty good app but... 4/5
The app takes up lots of space. Because I got 3 gigs available and it still can’t download. Even though the bottom says 1.6 GB it’s way more than that. Knowing that I have a iPad with low storage it a bummer I can’t have this app.
Best game ever 5/5
Really the best you have basically almost every musical instruments it’s amazing
Great App! 4/5
I’ve been really enjoying this app for all its worth! I’ve made a good amount of stuff on it, and everyone I show it to says they like how it sounds. However, I wish that they could add a little bit more to it. I’ve been wanting to do a track with brass instruments, but the only one I can use solo is french horn, where as I’ve been really wanting to use trumpet and trombone. Same thing goes with the strings instruments, because the only instrument you can play by itself is the upright bass. Woodwinds are pretty good, but I hope saxophone can eventually be added. It really is a good app, and I’d definitely recommend people to use it. However, it can sometimes be limiting as to what you can mess around with.
Something weird 5/5
By DW THE COOL KID
I love this app but it doesn’t let me download audio flies and I don’t have the audio files botton. Can someone please help me
Don’t know how to use 5/5
By If I was you I wanna be me too
That’s ok you just need to go to YouTube and search I songs and follow it (was this helpful)
Overall Amazing 1/5
My Son Just Got This App Yesterday And He Loves It! He Is Learning how to play song and create song i and They Sound A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! And now i have to try it for myself.
Really goood 5/5
By Ashdubh gamer
I promote this as the best music making app I’ve ever seen. So whoever these Have their mind in crazy
Best app ever!!! 😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁 5/5
I’ve used this app for only one purpose, an that is animating. I want to have background music. But not the kind that are copyright, because I send these videos to YouTube, so I used GarageBand. I created a really nice background song that goes with my animation! Really recommend this app to anyone who loves making music, and animating... But you get it. I really love this app and I hope you enjoy it too!!!
Really good .. would be better if you guys added in an ukulele as one of the instruments u can play
Cant make anything 2/5
Every time i try to start a new project or select a new instrument, I just get a box/button that says "okay". I click on it, and it just takes me back to the "recents" window. I don't know if it's my device or just garageband, all my other apps are working fine
Please Read!!! 4/5
So, I have been using GarageBand for a few weeks now. So far, I only have one suggestion: give users the ability to save to their phone so that they can use the audio for videos or share it with friends. I don’t know if you already have this feature, but if you do, please tell me how to access it. I don’t have YouTube, but when I get it, I’ll start a series. And using this spectacular app, I made an amazing Dubstep song that would be perfect for the theme song. The problem is, that I don’t see anything that allows me to save it.
Like I said, if you have this feature, please tell me how to access it. If not, please add it.
The besst 5/5
I loooooooove dubstep and with this app I can make my own!!!!!! It sounds hardcore but it has that nice soft music
More bass 5/5
By mad dog music
It needs to have more hip hop bass
Great For Podcasting 4/5
I haven’t tried all aspects of Garage Band to understand and use all their features. I just use the narration feature, hook an external microphone up to it to record podcasts. It works. :). Having the additional tracks makes it more fun because I can cut the tracks down so it’s a constant flow of sound. And it cuts out my breathing, which is helpful.
Please fix this massive issue. 2/5
I love GarageBand for iPhone/iPad, it is one of the main music production programs that I use, and arguably one of the most intuitive. My problem lies with a software glitch that has ruined my experience. This is not always an issue, but when it is, the program is unusable. Sometimes, when editing an existing keyboard or drum line, followed by playing it back and listening to it again, the text “Optimizing Performance” will appear, and the entire line will not continue to play any sound until the song is closed and reopened. When this issue persists, it will happen again consistently every other time that the song is reopened and an edit is made to a line again. I would highly appreciate any recognition of this issue, and would greatly appreciate a patch to fix it.
My app crashed and won’t come back up even after uninstalling it and reinstalling.
Great app 5/5
This app is great for all sort of things tunes ur own music videos or make ur own ring tones great way for u to create ur own tunes/music
This stinks! 1/5
I was recording something and it deleted all my several months of save data!
Optimizing performance is dumb 1/5
The optimizing performance crap needs to go. It forces me to delete stuff so I can make space to optimizing (which I didn’t even ask for). On top of that once my song was forcefully optimized it messed up the placement of my audio and instruments to the point where I couldn’t even go on with the song no more so I just had to delete it. Complete waste of my time
Very good app 5/5
It must be the best app in the world
Limiter issues 3/5
I’ve used GarageBand on my iOS devices for years now, and I started having this issue when I started using GarageBand seriously. When you add kicks for beats and try to make them harder, it makes everything else peak really badly and it just doesn’t give the sound I want. This app would be 1,000 times better if you were able to master tracks by yourself.
So I finally figured out what’s been causing the sudden crashes. When lowering the octane on an edited, usually heavily edited, loop, the loop becomes more unstable and will crash the app as the loop’s audio is more intense. What I mean by this is that when lowering the octane, the loop’s audio seems to get louder for some reason. I have no idea what causes this change in audio, but it seems to happen more often on basses, electronic bass loops to be more exact. I conducted my testing on the “Digital Dub Wobble Bass 01” and “Digital Dub Wobble Bass 02”, and I learned that when edited and the octanes are lowered, the loops will make the app crash. I hopefully will test other bass loops to determine if the crashing occurs with other loops. I hope this is more clear than my last review and hopefully it will be able to be countered and eliminated.
Good app but 2/5
There are no drummers or drum loops for metal. It’s fun to work on ideas on this app but I can’t get the right sound with what’s available.
It helps when I m bored. I like Minecraft though.
More instruments 5/5
Can you please add a saxophone or other instruments please. Would be a lot of help.
New update version 3/5
I was thinking to see new ways make musical mode.
to add 11 band style
I give 22,00k likes and people make up a playlist only top 7/11
Out of the numbers, maybe 2.4.7 version and please do it I ask
ok now this is epic 4/5
By epic super mom
So this is pretty cool and it has a very diverse range of instruments from around the world by I only have one problem.
wHeRE THE LIVING FRICK IS THE MARIMBA!!
I WANTED TO PLAY ARIA MATH FROM MINECRAFT AND NOW I CANT !!!!!!!

Good app 5/5
By Uliga Light House MD1
My only concern is that I use iphone 5s and the new synth alchemy it’s not found on the touch instruments.
I love this app 5/5
i’m using this app for a few months and I really love this app keep working
Add some stuff 5/5
Personally I think the app is great but you could get some variety like ukuleles electric ukuleles and for guitars you should add like seven and 12 string guitars that would be pretty cool and five string basses. Mandolins and banjos would be pretty cool.
By Nolan Shonk
I know you can tune in the app but could you make it so we can change the tuning in the guitar player and if you could tell me what tuning you have the guitar in. But overall best music making app I have ever used!
It’s amazing 5/5
My friends made a only boys band they made a cd and the music on the cd was made from garage band so I am trying to see if I am into it
GREAT JOB!! 5/5
By Instagram | Andres.0007
I love how you guys apple inc made this app because of this never existed then I wouldn’t have my drums bass and electric guitar i love you!👏🏼
I just wanna work because I can’t bang on these drums 3/5
The only problem I have is, while recording a beat on any type of drum machine/set it mashes up the taps. Speeding them up or slowing them down, never on time even if you play correctly.
Fun but flukey 2/5
Love the app but moving the menus around is an exercise in futility. I have no idea where to touch the screen in order to move the menus and it feels random. I can do it sometimes but usually it is not responsive.
It would be awesome if you could edit the loops chord progressions.
HELLO APPLE 3/5
I am still waiting on new instruments ever since summer and all we get are crappy updates. I don’t want more drums, i want new instruments like i will list right now
Kazoo (just for the funz)
(Please respond i am really wanting some of these because I want to add a twist to some music for my friend’s YouTube channel intro music)
Great App but I have a suggestion 4/5
By parrot 105
There should be a pop sound pack and a reggae sound pack
There already is Reggaeton pop but there should be a normal pop as well and I am sad that there isn’t reggae.
It takes forever to download 3/5
Idk why the app is great but the download time takes for ever plz fix
I wanted a good music-making app like this for ages!
I’m a violin player, and it makes me so happy that the orchestral sounds here are decent. I also love the virtual string instruments, they are very creative and are things I have never seen before. However, it could be improved by adding guidelines on each string (like lines telling me where to tap for a G on the D string and all that. Just the basic notes that a beginner would learn, no naturals, no flats). And it bugs me how the full dynamic of the sound comes a tiny bit later than when I actually tapped. This is a big problem, because it’s MUSIC we’re all making here... please fix this.
This app, like all others, was kind of hard to get a grasp of. I mean, when I want to use instruments I do not know how to play, I might use the piano version, but the thing is... I don’t play the piano. This is no big deal though.
Saved my life! 5/5
By Lauryna Denny
I really wanted my own acoustic drum set but Mom wanted me to have an electronic set. Without this app, I wouldn't have any drums. Now I made a drum set that had the pieces I wanted and was electronic. I called this new drum set "Curlers, Curlers". I made it from the Classic Drum Kit.
Unresponsive every 5 minutes 1/5
In the middle of me making a track it just freezes then closes
Excellent app for musicians new and experienced 4/5
I have been using garage band to mix and record a Symphonic Metal album. It has been working very well, both me and my father are satisfied with its performance.
Ever since the new update I cannot access any of the keyboards. Every time I wanna pick a keyboard the app crashes. Please fix this
I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS!!!
