What's new in this version (1.2):
Now doesn't stop when switching to other apps, as requested by many of you. Also a (removable) promotional screen on our multimedia tutorials Raga & Tala. If you like Indian classical music (and/or want to support us;-) please check them out.
Tanpura Droid is the software version of a Tanpura, this sitar-like instrument used in Indian classical music to play a drone sound throughout a musical performance. Includes real sounds. Whether you practice Indian music or just want a meditative background sound for relaxing, we hope you'll enjoy this little free app.

Excellent!! I've been needing this app. Thanks a lot. The sound is a little raspy, not as fine tuned as the one available for the iPod touch.
This is a solid app. Thanks.
Perfect for practice when I can't bring my sruti box!
Very nice and useful app
Sounds too staccato. Good effort but frankly the itunes app is more resonant - javaari is better.
I play Tabla this very handy to have around. Thanks,!
Works well handy. Not sure how to exit the app. Also there is a delay in response to the buttons on my Samsung Moment
For some reason the sound samples are too short so instead of a long continunous drone, you get four stoccatto notes. Sometimes the sound works great
