i'm an instrument developer making a guitar-like app too. I'm not going to ask for a return, but I bought your app as part of a random sample of the stuff that seems to be doing ok on the store. I am really saddened by the state of the music section instruments, but it's not just you. everybody except the top instrument makers is making same obvious mistakes. let me spell out what you should think about:
only 1/7 of the screen is used for actually playing notes and 1/7 for controls, almost entire screen is spent showing some paper taped to an amp. This ratio is completely backwards. (GuitarNeck does this better.) Almost entire screen should be reserved for playing notes, and notes should not be smaller than a finger, or you can't actually hit them accurately. There isn't enough screen space to waste on stuff other than notes. Once you do this right, you won't end up with a 1 string guitar with teeny tiny frets.
Playing a sample when the screen is touched is *not* sufficient at all!! Latency is high to do anything musical at all. Most of the store suffers from this because most people making apps don't seem to be musicians of any level, or won't talk to an actual musician about what they are doing, or don't bother trying it out on a musician that is going to say the truth. You need to make the sound buffers as small as possible, so that latency and jitter are as low as possible. Place a microphone on the surface of the ipad and run the microphone and instrument through a mixer panned to opposite sides, then look at the recorded stereo waveform in the editor. You can measure the peaks from when your finger touched to when the sound came out of the iPad. This is the real latency number. Every musician will tell you that 8 milliseconds for finger-to-ear response is the goal. The iPad might not be capable of better than 25ms finger-to-ear, which is ok. My instrument reached around 30milliseconds. A lot of stuff can't get below 100ms because the code isn't fast enough, and any higher than that is completely unuseable as an instrument. If you don't believe me, think of 120 quarter beats per minute and calculate how many milliseconds is in a 16th note. Then think that you must be 2 to 4 times more accurate than that to make a 16th rhythm sound right.
i suspect that you might not be a musician at all because the fretboard is completely backwards (left-handed), as if you are putting your hands on a guitar that somebody in front of you is wearing - not what you see when you are wearing the guitar.. if you could actually play multiple strings, this would be a real problem. i am a left-handed guitarist, but almost every guitarist in the world is right-handed, and cannot visualize the fretboard unless the head/nut is on the left and the bridge on the right. that means notes ascending from left to right.
i care about this kind of stuff, because musicians trying to find instruments designed for-and-by real musicians are finding it impossible to sort the real instruments from the toys with nice screenshots. if there is going to be a thousand 'instruments' like this on the store, then there's going to have to be a separate 'music instruments' category for apps that actually try to meet the requirements for real musicians.
