Delay. This Virtual Amp app is called Delay Effects because there will be delay -- between 1/4 second to 1 second depending on your device. This Amp Emulator app takes the approach of accepting that there will be delay and going with it. In fact, you can select an option to increase the delay so you can more easily play in harmony with yourself.
If you have the right cable, you can plug an electric guitar in, otherwise use an acoustic through the microphone (headphone required though). Feedback: in mobile devices the speaker and microphone are close together, so without a guitar cable or headphones, it will feedback. Also, the feedback detection may be triggered if the volume of the input signal is too loud.
There are a few basic effects -- we hope you like them! This app is free and unsupported by ads. So if you do like it, you'll love Delay Effects Plus which also has a fully configurable effect rack including Wah Wah effect, a Tremolo effect, an integrated tuner and an"output to Wifi" feature that turns your phone+guitar into a wireless/mobile guitar. In addition, if you have a Nexus 7, Nexus 10 or Galaxy Nexus, Delay Effects Plus will have significantly less delay with the "Native" mode.
Please note that the "use Loudspeaker" option, which is designed to allow you to plug your guitar into the phone and have the music play through the speaker, will not work on all phones.
The "right cable" is a 3.5mm trrs connector to 6.25mm TS mono (guitar) plug. You can use a commercial cable such as an iRig™ cable or a GuitarConnect™ cable.
