    "One of the best drum apps ever in the play store! One thing that annoys not only me, but other people, is the snare's rim shot. Two choices, either you make the snare larger or make an option to disable rimshot. Perhaps increasing the snare's sound will do generally because it still sounds quite likely to be low even at max. No other complaints! Well done."

    "So, as a person who loves to drum but doesn't want all the technical, this app is great. I honestly just want to jam out to songs and practice different tempos, which this app offers. I will say it is a little frustrating that with a paid app you have to make additional purchases within, but it is still a solid app."

    This app will help beginner drummers to improve their drum skills: there are notations of every official rudiment, keeping the tempo exercises, reading tests and many more features that are basic for every player.

    "I really enjoy this app. Sometimes my wife doesn't however, as my kids jam out to this often on long car rides. All in all I would say this is a very close equivalent to a real drum set (as close as you can get via an app), and I enjoy it very much."

    "Their is nothing like passing the time messing with musical things on your mobile. Real Drum has to be one of the best drum pads simulator i have tried. Most you get is 4 pads on others i have tried. Real Drum offers much more. You can record and loop tracks back, even record your own sounds to replace the sound of a drum or symbol."
