Alexander Zolotov, developer of SunVox and PixiTracker, has made his Sound Fields app free today through July 4th!
Sound Fields iTunes Description:
~ App for kids and their parents ~
Do you have a good ear for music? Can you play a musical instrument? It is not important anymore, because with this tool ANYBODY can play great music without any skills!
It is easy! Just select some background track and synth you like. And that's it. Touch the screen and feel the sound!Please try my other apps:

Background tracks composed in SunVox.
I think this succeeds in its goal of being a simple "anybody can play" app, while still expecting the user to develop a sense of rhythm. Nothing is sanitized or quantized so you at least have to play along rather than mindlessly tap. The track and synth selection is limited, but this is easily worth the asking price. Here is a demo from the developer.
