Solid app with a few minor hangups.

This has gotta be one of the best finger drumming apps on the market. Well designed with a simple layout and includes all of the features you’de want in an app of this kind. The best thing about it for me is the fact that virtually everything is customizable. You can assign any sound in a given kit to any of the 8 pads to fit your layout preference. The kits themselves are decent for the most part (that being said, at least the acoustic ones. The electronic kits are awful. I just steer clear of those.) I also like the fact that access to your music library is integrated within the app and if you choose to drum along to your tracks that way you can adjust the playback volume to better hear your own deadly rhythm. Overall, one of my favorites and one of the most frequently used apps on my phone. Good work guys. Hopefully you get around to adding a few more kits in the near future, yeah?

Has potential...

Has some decent sounds, but that's about it. I haven't been able to use this app as a serious rhythm app for any project I work on and I have tried many times because it has some useable drum sounds. One limiting factor to me is the looping section. There is no metronome count in and you get taken to a confusing section that looks like drum pads with numbered boxes within them. I haven't been able to get a decent loop yet. The record feature is equally awkward because it takes you to a separate start screen where you have to press start to record and return to the drum section which causes a blank gap before the beat...this makes zero sense to me. It's almost as if the developer wants this app to be a limited toy by how clunky it is to work with.

Awesome app!

It's an awesome app. I especially like the feature that you can pick a song from your library and drum along with it!
