  • Simple and Serves Its Purpose Well

    As a bass player, this is exactly what I’m looking for in terms of practice and writing new bass lines. The variety of beats that comes with the purchase is pretty satisfying as well. If you want even more variety, there’s an option to purchase at a reasonable price.
  • Simple

    This app is very simple to use! I use it to accompany my ukulele. It allows you to keep rhythms you use as favorites. Doesn't over power you.
  • Sounds Programmed With No Groove

    By nickname333
    These are weak. The jazz is particularly bad, but nothing swings. You know how your favorite drummers have a million ghost notes and groove? There is zero of that here. 100% synth drums programmed without understanding of feel or dynamics or anything slightly musical. A waste. Should have gotten an expensive coffee with that $.
  • Battery killer

    When my battery was unexpectedly low, checking the Battery usage report in the settings showed Beats+ utilizing 90% with "background activity".
  • Great for songwriting!

    By Catwalk66
    I’ve purchased all of the packs and love all of them. I love to challenge myself with new beats and it helps me to write songs in whole new ways. I recommend it to all my writing partners!

  • BPM not flexible enough

    By TazmanR
    If this app allowed me to adjust the BPM by increments of one then I would have given it 5 stars. Only a handful of songs I play have the BPM in increments of 5, so I cannot use this app for the majority of songs and it does not make sense for me to switch to this app just for those songs. So this app unfortunately is useless to me. The concept is great and if there is a way to change the BPM by 1 then please let me know and I will change the rating.
  • Excellent!

    Wonderful app!
  • K.I.S.S.- Keep it simple stupid

    By kwdulong
    Has all the beats I need or want when I sit down to play for 10 minutes or 3 hours. Ive been using it for a few years now and never had a problem. Love it.
  • I give it to four because there’s always room for improvement

    I’m a novice guitar player and I get Bluetooth this app to my Marshall code 50 amp. I get to play along with my guitar and match the sound quality and volume. I wish there were more options for the metal genre. If they could add thrash metal and Norwegian black metal, I would enjoy this app even more. I really like that I have an option for playing blues. The more options that I have in the genre that I prefer which is rock, classic rock and the battle will make this better for me. I hope in the future you can add these packs because it beats playing to a metronome…
