** We don’t want to interrupt you when you’re making music, so we’ll ask here. If you enjoy using Singaling, please take a moment to leave a positive review/rate us on the App Store; it really helps and we love you for it. Ratings and reviews reset with each new update, so if you’ve reviewed a previous version (thank you!), please consider doing so for this version too.
I usually strip out that bit in the end of app descriptions about "please rate us" but I liked this appeal here. I fucking hate those pop-ups in apps, but apps live and die on iTunes reviews. I respect the decision to avoid the usual games.
