Easy for Pros, Pointless for n00bs
Some reviewers shouldn't own smartphones. The software is good and inexpensive, for what the amount of functionality it can bring to an iPhone. You can't really go wrong with an on-the-fly sequencer that honors AbletonLINK, paste-able 8 part sampler with some expression XY pads to shape sound. It has a slick interface and isn't as difficult as some of mentally challenge knucklebeaks that whine about how it's pointless! Although I've not tested completely, it seems solid and not difficult to become familiar if you know how to use sequencers, drum machines, or beatbox. I'm giving it four stars because there's always a little room to optimize.
Pro Music Creating App
Been using Triggler for a few weeks now. It takes a bit to understand the functionality and after figuring out all the bells and whistles this app does an amazing and unique job of allowing me to create music. Ableton Link allows me to sit with friends and create music together. If you have troubling figuring out how to use the app there are useful tutorials and demos on YouTube.
