Free iPad Apps: Toca Boca Toca Band Review


Over the holidays, we installed Toca Boca Toca Band app so that the kids in the family will enjoy the iPad. But I believed we, the adults enjoyed it more than the kids and this Toca Band rhythm and Toca Band lala tune became instant LSS hit for some of us during the holiday season (and beyond 🙂 ).

Toca Band is an app is designed for both the iPhone and the iPad. In this app you will create your own band and let the Toca band members showcase their musical talent. There are 16 band members to choose from and you can place them on 4 part stage (front row, middle row, top row, and center stage) and they will play differently depending on which part of the stage they are placed.

What I love most about Toca Boca is that there are NO Rules. You create your own tunes and mix and you can just rock on! This iPad app was FREE during Christmastime but its now USD 1.99 and is definitely worth every cent.
