Although when I say minimal I don’t necessarily mean lacking in sound quality. More than the interface, and indeed the app’s description, can be described as minimal at best. That’s not to say that there’s anything wrong with minimal, but I would have appreciated a little more than this description:
“With Zario you can set a single oscillator to your desired waveform, customise the keyboard, and play any lead with ultimate expression.”
However, the Zario site is a little more helpful, and has this to say.
Disable those annoying pull out menus that come with iOS
Just activate guided access!
Go to your device’s settings. From there keep going to general, accessibility, and all the way down you’ll find guided access. Once you activate guided access, all you have to do is open Zario, and once you’re sure you dont have to leave the app, triple tap your home button
No more pull out tabs coolin’ down your jamz.
More of a beginner tip really. Notice that the Zario board is a lot like a keyboard. So if you manage to keep the blue pull down bar perfectly centered within a key, you’re playing a tuned note
Sine waves might not be audible if you aren’t plugged into speakers or headphones. So always plug in to work with sine waves. Also, always plug in cause everything sounds better anyways!
Inter App Audio
Unfortunately Zario crashes if you try to use it with Garageband’s Inter App Audio feature. Right now the best way to use Garageband with Zario is to use Audiobus. However, it might be a bit buggy to use Zario with Audiobus without anything plugged into the headphone jack. With headphones or speakers plugged in, Zario works perfectly with Audiobus.”

Zario is on the app store and costs $1.99:
