Can my wife and I have a different 30 songs? Our playlists dont overlap much.

I like tap tap well enough, but the fact that I dont like many of the songs available for free is a downer so I'm looking for an alternative.

Nice. I was hoping for it to be 0.99 like in July but I missed that and this will do, I really enjoy this app. I think GRT2 is cooler for a rock band type game but this game rocks for custom music. I hated always loading 3 songs and deleting nonstop for the lite version.

I dislike the shaking in TTR as well the sliding I just manually do the notes :P

I'm a little nervous about the update. I liked the slidey bits and the 5 rails. It was a great challenge. Tap Tap was always too easy.

It will stay - this 3 button mode is only an option.

I prefer to tap the buttons instead of sliding them, it works. On Fade To Black i got a 576 combo (out of 1026).

I'm hoping there will be an option to remove slides while still having a 5 button mode.

Do you still have to upload tracks to a server? or can it read the tracks from the phone now?

Apple isn't going to allow music analysis on the device. It'll still be server-based.
