    Tap Tap Revenge, in my opinion, is useless. Other than the theme, it's a step down from the regular TTR. You have to pay to download new songs, which won't be songs YOU want to play, but songs the developer wants to. I don't know about you guys, but I'd rather pay $9.99 for a full TTR with song creation, rather than slowly accumulate an expensive list of crappy, obscure electronic/ambient songs.

    Ever played Guitar Hero? Rock Band?

    They follow the EXACT same Model.

    Web 2.0 and the Internet are changing everything.

    I don't understand why they took out the option to use your own songs, maybe it's something to do with Apple's Appstore limitations?

    No, it is not due to limitations.

    Tapulous is trying to be a smart marketing business.

    They know that you guys can crack their apps. So they need at least SOME way of making money now don't they?

    They can make money by doing what I said: Release TTR with Song Creation intact, for $9.99, or even $12.99. Tapulous can then charge players $0.99 for songs EVERYONE has created. I just want to make my own taps and play them for FREE.
  6. It all makes sense now.

    And how would they make money off that? If they DID charge for the app, would you HONESTLY buy it?

    Charging for music is much more LEGAL and Lucrative.

    Yes, I would. If it was $9.99, and every song created by Tapulous themselves was $0.99, or even $1.99, they could make a lot of money. I, however, want to play TTR to my own music, instead of C-Grade Electronic Musicians who just found out how to work FL Studio or GarageBand.

    Well right now everything is very early beginning. We do not yet know their business model.

    For all you know, they could be striking a deal with Record Labels or Apple to allow their songs to be turned into Tap... things for your iPod.

    I half agree with you and half with Tes. Like Tes said it's easier selling songs seperatly and the fact they're so cheap means people will at least buy one. However i agree with you for the simple reason i hate Electro and all forms of it.
