What’s On? Updated – From Great to Worse

Update: The ad also seems to appear after about every 10 searches. It has recently come to our attention that NapkingStudio’s What’s On? application has been updated to 2.01 . This version, while it does fix some bugs, it also integrates a fullscreen, 5 second ad upon starting the app. (Note: Others have have stated that there are other areas where this occurs; however, I cannot confirm it.)

Groovemaker

**Note: This review is a blanket review – having beta tested all the apps in the Groove Maker series, they all operate in the same basic way, the main difference are the sound loops.
