This is a very fun app to use. It is made for times when you can't use your amp. It is great for travelling. I use it in the bedroom or living room when my family is trying to watch TV. Studio headphones seem to work the best. Cheaper headphone sound pretty crappy. As usual, clean tones sound best but the OD tones are better than some of the old Korg sounds. We are still years away from great digital overdrives in devices like these. Overall, I would recommend it as long as you don't expect the best musical experience in your life. It is just for fun and maybe to record some demos.
