Music creation apps on Android have lagged far behind iOS, but things are slowly catching up with improved latency in newer versions of Android. A music creation app just hit the Play Store that music aficionados might want to check out. It's called Stagelight (no, not Stagefright—bad timing) and you can try it for free.

Stagelight makes it possible to build tracks in just a few minutes from stock loops by arranging them in the timeline. It also includes several instruments, customizable drum machines, effects, and more. It seems like a robust app, if perhaps a little confusing at first. Luckily, there's a tutorial that shows you the basics.

The app is free to use with all the basic features, however you need to buy a full version license if you want to record or share your music. That's $9.99 via an in-app purchase. The Stagelight store also has a myriad of loops and sounds for a few bucks. You can give it a shot right now, but it'll only work on tablets.
