User reviews of Caustic 3
A+. Very smooth and acurate. If I knew how to drop a beat, I'd use this. Since I don't, uninstalled. HTC Desire.

Caustic is great but it crashes every time i attempt to get the full version.

I've tried a heap of music making apps (inc iphone) and this blows them all out of the water. Easy to learn, clear interface and gives you massive creative control. Bargain price too - thank you Caustic developer!

Intuitive, great sounds & character Its simple to use, easy to get to grips with but with a lot of depth. Excellent app. I bought a tablet purely to use this with, I wouldn't have bought one otherwise. But it also works great on my smartphone (galaxy nexus).

Absolutely amazing The best music tool on android by far. I can't say enough good things about this app. I used this for my first album with fantastic results, and I'll be using it on the next one too. For the price this is unbelievable.
