notreble, "I've had three or four different amp modeler practice amps for my iPad, and this one is the easiest to use and sounds the best. I own a GK Mobile Bass amp, and must say that the sound is pretty true to the GK tone."
The Bass Geek, "What wins me over in this contest is the better sound for the PocketGK (which models the Gallien-Krueger amp line faithfully)."

Great results with PocketGK and iRiffPort
I'm a bass player that's come fairly late to the whole iOS thing but have now enthusiastically jumped into the world of virtual amps. I've tried several of the apps that are out there but have developed a heavy preference for PocketGK.
PocketGK is very well thought out for the average bassist - I'd say it provides about 90% of my dream list for an app. Tone is great, the play along and looper features are useful practice tools and the built-in tuner works well. The only things on my wishlist for PocketGK are a few of the typical effects bassists tend to use - a compressor, fuzz, distortion and possibly chorus would be great to have as in-app purchases.
Also, iRiffPort is the way to go for an interface - I tried a few of the audio jack interfaces and was very disappointed on poorly they worked for bass. iRiffPort gives me a great low noise way of accessing PocketGK on my iPhone and iPad. iRiffPort also works well with the new Lightning to 30 pin adapter (my iPad is Lightning equipped.) Hopefully we'll see more interface products from Pocketlabworks - a stompbox interface to give an easy, durable way of jacking PocketGK into a pedaltrain would be great for live performance.
Pocketlabworks has a winner here!
There is no App that compares to this ! I have a G.K. 1001RB II, MB800, Neo 410, 212, and 115. I thought my cabinets were light - never thought I could get the G.K. sound in something as light as an ipad. I use it everyday and when gigging, I use it to learn last minute requests during a break. Amazing ! Support for this App is great as well. I recently contacted them and the response and fix to my issue was completed in no time at all. I'm at the point where I really don't think my musical journey would be the same without this App. Funny, but it has actually made me more money because aside from keeping you sharp with it's practice tools, it has allowed me to become a more focused and prepared bass player which keeps my phone ringing !
PocketGK WITH an iriffport
To all those who want, use and love this this app as I do, I just want to say yes, it's amazing.
I did hesitate to upgrade to a new iPhone thinking it wouldn't work anymore. I did it anyway and guess what, the app works perfectly.
I took a chance on it because well, I can't say much about recent support from pocketlabworks as the last message I ever received back was in 2013. I sent several emails about my concern with other iOS versions. No responses. Don't care. I'm not a support freak. I try things and figure it out. It works. No bugs. Maybe somewhere in the middle of the iPhone 4,5 iOS changes there were problems but I never switched until now.
I have the new iPhone 6s on iOS 9.3.1. It works better on this new iPhone than it did on my old one. If anyone has been wanting to make this move, I have taken care of the guess work for you and this company too, apparently. Use it with confidence.
