Ars Technica: “Agile Partners’ better hardware, beautiful graphics, abundance of effects, and the ability to use more than three effects simultaneously makes that application a winner in our book.”

Premier Guitar: “AmpKit is the most impressive amp modeling software that I’ve encountered for the iPhone.”

TUAW: “It sounds awesome! … I’ve been having a blast.”

CrunchGear: “AmpKit’s guitar tones are great! From crushing distortion to kooky tremolo, there are many tones to choose from and it is easy to navigate through the options with speed and efficiency.”
