Really good for the money

This is a really nice app. It's a good emulator for what you pay, and it gives you the experience of working with an 808 in iPad format. The pattern chaining feature is a nice, useful touch. The app is real simple to program. Well worth the money, if you ask me. Plus, it doesn't crash... Even running on my iPad 2.

Sounds good!

If you're looking for a decent 808 emulation this bad boy is pretty nice. One thing that would be nice would be a mute on/off button per channel, this would allow you to quickly drop elements of your track in and out. Other than that it's awesome.

A great & inexpensive version of a classic.

The UI is simple, and clean & very true to the original. The 808 seems to be done to death at this point, but this is an inexpensive & practical version that does what it is supposed to, and does it well. I dig it.
