I’ve decided to list my best top 5 free music instrument apps to help people who just spent all their money on a iPad but have no money left for apps. Well, here are a few apps to get you started. I tried to put a list together with apps you can do actual work with that are not just toys. The Apple App Store is loaded with tons of Apps and many are not worth the time even if they are free. These apps won’t rival the more expensive apps in the $10 and above range but should put you on the right path until you have money to get a worthy app.
You can also luck up and get a premium app for free but you will have to be on the look out or have a special app that will alert you to a price drop or free status. Well without further ado here goes my list.
