    App initially had problems running on my Galaxy S3 so the dev contacted me and subsequently fixed the issue. Very impressive service. The app works perfectly now and I'm very happy with it. Excellent value!

    I am a guitarist and I was looking for some decent bossa nova beats for practicing the classics. The bossa rhythms included in this app are better than some I've seen in MIDI/acid loops costing a lot more money. I'm really glad I found this app before I plunked down 100+ bucks on a drum machine! Muito obrigado, zaoloapps! :)

    Lots of play. Interesting kits and rhythms. Worth the price for a musician needing handheld drummer stuff.

    The upside is that it does what you expect from a drum machine really well and sounds great. The downside is controlability, as a drum machine it really needs a footswitch at least. Maybe it could be an option to use a USB footswitch on a future version. It would also be useful (perhaps as an alternative to an external footswitch) to have a song mode or pre-set pattern control mode. I found only

    I don't know if this app will stay in my usual Live Worship kit, but it sure has got me out of a tight spot cheap. What's missing to make this really work? Set lists, maybe even integrate a selection wheel into live mode for easy tempo changes.
