Luuk van der Graaff released Beatonal, an "accessible" music composition app with built-in synthesizers and drums. The app is available on both iOS and Android. Beatonal doesn't seem to have any of the usual Inter-app goodies on iOS, but it does have Ableton Link. There is also MIDI export. All in all, this is an impressive looking effort from a first-time developer.
The app is free to try, but requires an IAP to unlock all of the features. The unlock IAP is presently discounted at an introductory price of $3.
