Infuriating to Use
I’ve been hoping for some time that this app would receive some update—some update that would magical fix it. And alas, that has not happened. In Fruity Loop’s attempt to make their app more like the computer program, they’ve sacrificed the pure speed of FL mobile. This app is the Vista of FL products. The patches, and UI for the patches, are good. There are more options to control timbre and volume and velocity in this version. There are more patches and unique oscillators to utilize, more effects. However, and really: HOWEVER... The step sequencer, in this program alone, is harder to use than anything I’ve ever composed with. It feels impossible. To move a note, you have to hold down and then drag. To make a selection box, you have to hold down and then drag. Accidentally tap the screen and you’ll make a note. Unlike previous versions where you just press and instantly move things, it takes forever to correct notes, or drag them. The Snap To option is no help, and far inferior to the options in the old FL Mobile. There is no “change by octave or semitone” option, and when dragging a selection of notes, the sequencer has the habit of lighting up with black bars, so you have no idea where you are in reference to the keyboard. There is no “turn into...(note value)” option, so I can no longer select a great swathe of music, and then turn every note into an eighth note, or a quarter note, or a whole note. Brilliant option, no longer available. And lastly, the mixing and reverb is terrible. I don’t know how, but it’s terrible. It sounds like every instrument is trying to fuse together, instead of standing in individual parts of a room, and then blending. I don’t know why my new IPAD with FL Mobile 2 sounds awful compared to my old IPHONE 4, which sounds clearer. Clearly, no one who actually composed with the old app had a hand in creating the new one—this app is really really difficult to use. All they had to do was add automation and velocity control, and then FL mobile would’ve been perfect. Really. So overall, I’m sorry, but one star. I’ve tried using it for hours on end, and with much patience, but it becomes infuriating to use.

Hands down 110 x better than garage band
For pros and beginners this is an amazing app !! :!:! Plz help with a recent issue I’ve been having and cans find answers know where. When I record vocals it only comes thru one side I don’t even know how this happened I must have accidentally changed a setting. This is just as good as fl studio for pc if not better because it has the convenience of the built-in keyboard available on the smart phone and or tablet. I literally recorded and composed an entire cd using nothing but fruit loops studio mobile. highly recommended app. I have the paid version. Mind u it does not have all inatruments and sample packs, witch would be cool but , it comes with more than enough to be PRODUCTIVE !!! Thanks fl studio !!! Dont listen when ppls say that garage band is better, bahahaha , they are either lazy and willing to settle for basement(garage)recordings over some sold-out commercial beat, or simply haters.

Good, could be better
So, I love the app for jotting ideas down but there’s one bug that is very annoying. Whenever I try to record my voice it crashes, it works after I open it though. A suggestion I have is being able to write lyrics inside of the app, that would be so cool.
