    Hello everyone. A few months ago I began development of my first iPhone/iPod Touch app to learn how to use the SDK and it has escalated into a rather large project. My first idea was to port the game "Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan!" or "Elite Beat Agents," when I became aware of an existing project called simply "osu!" for the PC, which you can learn about here:

    osu! - rhythm is just a click away

    The osu! community is rather large already and there's a dedicated team of people working to make it better and better, including a large number of people making songs for the program (known as beatmaps). I got in touch of the writer of that program and got permission to port the project to the iPhone and iPod Touch platform, letting me take advantage of the already thriving community and many beatmaps available. Fast forward to today and development has come a long way, but still has a long way to go. At this point though, I'm ready to open beta testing to a closed number of individuals. Note, this really is beta testing and there are still many bugs and things to do before a public release is really ready. If chosen for beta testing, you should be ready for crashes and general incompatibilities and report any bugs to me so I can work on fixing them. The project is also still under development so new features will probably be coming in all the time.

    If you're interested in beta testing, please PM me with your Email address and which device you have and I'll get in touch with you regarding repository information. Please feel free to check out the above website for osu! and download the excellent game for the PC (currently only available for Windows). Maybe even try making a few beatmaps yourself

    Here are some screenshots of the current progress of the game.

    One of the first screenshots I made of just parsing the beatmaps and generating the objects:

    I have been a fan of this game on the DS. Osu/Elite Beat Agent, this game looks pretty good for the iPod touch/iPhone. I'm tracking this game now.

    I actually used to play osu! A lot on the computer. I used to be an active member of the forums and I've made around 6 or 7 beatmaps. I'm looking forward to seeing this on the iPod Touch. I haven't jailbroken yet, but I might just for this app. I'll PM you when I do jailbreak if you need any more beta testers.

    When I release the public beta, it will come with no songs. It has a built-in beatmap downloader that downloads beatmaps straight from the source for the osu! community:

    http://osu.ppy.sh/?p=beatmaplist&s=4&r=0

    The "pattern generator" you're talking about is known as a beatmap creator and there are currently no plans to make an on-device beatmap creator, though you can download the official osu! game from the website:

    http://osu.ppy.sh

    and create your beatmaps that way. It has a built-in beatmap creator.
