  1. Hi, love the smiley at the bottom of the page 🙂 what’s up with that? Anyways it’s a shame demos are virtually non existent for apps.

  2. Alistair from Shape of Sound here, if people really want a free demo version which you can unlock with In-App Purchases then let me know in the comments here. For now if any synthtopia readers want to try it then grab one of these promo vouchers (first come first served):


    Also check out this video of the improved release version done by the Apps4iDevices magazine:

  3. Hi, you can go to the iTunes App Store on an iPad 2 or later and on the first page ‘Featured’ you can scroll to the bottom and there are a set of buttons, one of them is labelled redeem. Click redeem and put in the code, if nobody else has tried that code yet then it will download a free copy. If people have got to the first 3 already then here are two new ones:

  4. Looks great on the vid…always interesting to see apps that uses the touch screen as the “play ground”. Missed the promo codes….have to be faster next time!!! 🙂
