After 12 days waiting for review, 60 Top Hat Piano Grooves Free version 1.2 is now ready for sale.
The user has now the option of purchasing a preferred groove module. For example: If you’d like to access all the Rock & Pop grooves only, you may do so by purchasing only that module.
I think this will be a nice feature on the free version since the user already has access to two grooves for every single style. They can try them and choose the style they want to work with first and then when they are ready they can download the next module.
Apple does send you a nice email with all the details:

Yesterday, after 14 days, a new version of our music app Rhythmic Vocabulary for All Instruments Vol. 1 was Rejected by the review team on Apple. This version of the app has an in-app purchase where the user can buy Vol. II within the app.
I made two mistakes when submitting the app for review:
- I forgot to upload a in-app screenshot, which is not optional and it is said to be used in the review process only.
- I did not add the In-App Purchase on the main screen for the app submission
In the email from Apple, they described generic problems with in-app purchases but they do not tell you specifically what the problem is. Apparently the most common problem is not having a restore button (or feature) for the user to retrieve the in-app purchases previously made when they re-install the app or they download a new version and, I knew that was not the problem with mine.
I wrote to apple and they promptly reply telling me to submit a new build of the app and to make sure the in-app purchases were included with the build. That meant: Add a screenshot, and add the in-app purchases that you want to include in the app (on the main page)
Now we have to wait for review for another 14 days or so.
Today we submitted the new version of 60 Top Hat Piano Grooves Free.
I added 4 modules that are available as in-app purchases,using the method I described on my previous post In App Purchase
60 Top Hat Piano Grooves is a great piano app for piano students and players who want to improve their comping technique in many different styles.
We will see how long it takes…
I just finished submitting a new app to the App Store:
Mario Cerra is an unbelievable jazz saxophone player ( I met Mario a few years back when we were studying at Berklee College of Music in Boston) and I asked him to share 20 of his tricks and concepts when improvising at the saxophone, with the hope of creating a great Mobile app with video tutorials, demos, scores and backing tracks for practicing.
I should add, I’ve just finished my piano app a couple of weeks ago, and is already available on the App Store, got a few nice reviews and we are waiting to see how it does on the App Store.
We’ll see what happens with mDecks Music
