Rock out to to­day’s hits on a dig­i­tal gui­tar

The Washington Post Sunday - - TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION - — Hay­ley Tsukayama

Those look­ing to un­leash their in­ner rock star may want to try “Beat Fever,” a mu­sic game that lets you “play” the best parts of to­day’s hits. It is sim­i­lar to games such as “Gui­tar Hero”: play­ers have four strings to con­trol. Notes come fly­ing at you down a gui­tar fret­board, and you hit them in time with the song.

Over time, you face harder chal­lenges on “Beat Fever,” which re­quires you to not only tap but also slide in time with (at times) some pretty fast beats. The app also has a lit­tle bit of a story line, which is fun but not ex­actly what one could call deep. The most en­gag­ing part of the app def­i­nitely is lis­ten­ing to the lat­est hits and rock­ing out to them. Just make sure you use your head­phones.

Free, for iOS and An­droid.
