  8. I can bearly hear the sounds too.
    Installed on ipod touch.

  9. As musician this program suck.. you cant record anything, export , chose sample …

  10. Cool app with alot of potential. I can barely hear it. Any chance of loading or sampling my mp3s! How about a point A and B loop feature for my mp3 library? Just some thoughts, keep at it!

  11. When I open beatiphone it say cannot open sample. I can’t do anything after that. Beatiphone doesn’t work

  12. im in the same situation as justman, i downloaded it for my ipod touch off igopher and it says it can’t find the samples.

  13. For me, when I try to download this, it says “main script execution failed”

    So now I have the icon on my iPhone 1.1.4, but the icon doesnt work, and I can’t get rid of the icon because I never oficially “installed” it

    Help?

  14. It says main script exicution failed when I downloaded it on installer I’m running 1.1.4 and it won’t work when I press it it just opens then closes and when I try to uninstall it its not their I really need help with this
    thanks.

  15. I’ve got the same problem – it can’t locate samples – I have 1.1.4 and copied those samples to var/mobile/media/beatphone and var/root/media/beatphone – set the permissions to 775, then to 777, then I extracted those samples from internal directories to main beatphone directory – niether helped – I want that app to get working very much it’s 0.2.6 version (37,9 MB) please help me

    send any suggestions to mefisto_DeL_grande@yahoo.com

  16. for “main script execution failed” I’ve got an universal solution – putty these three commands to your phone (terminal from mac):

    chmod -R 777 /Applications/*

    chmod +s /Applications/Installer.app/Installer

    chown -R root:wheel /Applications/Installer.app

  17. chmod -R 777 /Applications/*
    chmod +s /Applications/Installer.app/Installer

    chown -R root:wheel /Applications/Installer.app

  18. chown -R root:wheel /Applications/Installer.app

  19. sorry for mess-it did not type well first command starts with chmod and ends with * second with: chmod…installer and third with: chown…installer.app

  20. MINE ALSO SAYS MAINSCRIPT ERROR AND ALL I WANN DO IS ERASE THE ICON BUT I CANT, IF U HAVE A TIP TO GET RID OFF THE ICON SINCE I CAN NOT UNISNTALL IT THEN SEND ME IT AT THEJACKA88@YAHOO.COM
