AmpliTube (iPhone/iPad) $19.99 -> FREE




Free for the first time ever! I used the free version for a while, so this should be a solid app as well!

As far as I can see it's not a price drop, a freebie or a deal. They just changed it to freemium (in game's terms). Not true. Sorry. Read on please.

Wow, that's sad for people who already bought the app.

OTOH, it's always had IAP, so I'm not sure if there's less to the app now or not. (I like JamUp and ToneStack better...)

After looking at it, I can confirm this is the regular version which contains more than the FREE/LE versions.

If you are interested at all, I'd recommend snagging it. It's not the best effects/amp sim, but plenty good for free.

And - you don't need a guitar to make use of it - the effects work great with other sounds/synths/etc using Audiobus/IAA/audio copy/song importing/microphone...

Okay. I have to correct my previous posting. It's a time-limited sale (of the regular app price) indeed. The IAPs were there before already. Sorry.

Here you have a demo video from 2010 (the latest app update was mid 2014):



Have a look at the crazy price changes of the "full" version @ AppShopper. The price of iPhone and iPad versions was always the same.

Can you please tell me if the drummer loops are included or IAP? My amp has plenty of built in modes so I'm just looking for some drums to play along with.

Downloaded both versions-at free, how couldnt I?

Btw-a better app (in my opinion), is currently on sale: BIAS.

Agreed, but its (and JamUp's) future is uncertain with the release of Bias FX, although it will share settings with BIAS (and therefore usable with JamUp that way...)
