  • Ugh

    By The man/angel
    I use the website in my phone and I thought that if you used the app it would not have that stupid banner telling you to get the app that takes up half the screen. I actually had hope for this one. Not even a trial. Wow.
  • Grossly overpriced

    By MizMM
    **EDIT: in response to the copied and pasted moronic “developer’s reply,” I didn’t say I want it for free!! Please read the review! I said I want to pay ONCE a reasonable lifetime amount and be done. I won’t ever pay until you do. And why are you telling me about Apple getting half of it? I don’t care. Set a high one time payment option and I’ll probably pay it. I won’t pay the rest of my life. I’ll pay once now if you ever add the option. Otherwise you and Apple get 1/2 of zero which is what most people who find this app do when they see what you’re trying to charge. You’re losing a lot of potential income by not offering a one time pay option. —————————- I am not paying for this until they set a one time payment lifetime. I refuse to pay repeatedly the rest of my life. Give us a one time payment option. My guitar teacher got this for either free or something less than $5 when it was new and has it lifetime and he is the only reason I have heard of it. He shows it to his students. But he doesn’t recommend paying for it because it costs too much because you try to stick your claws in for the rest of my life. There are countless times I thought of buying it but then realized these greed hounds want to keep charging a subscription the rest of my life and don’t even offer a one payment lifetime subscription. Musicians and music students (except for the few stars out there - who don’t need it) aren’t wealthy. My teacher said all his students would bought it for a reasonable fee like $20 lifetime but none of them have because of the subscription. I’m the same although I personally might pay more than $20 as long as it was a one-time charge. I don’t know if they try to take it out of my iTunes or get my credit card but I’m not going to pay something for years at the rate of $60 a year. If they would sent a one time price instead of a subscription, I would pay it. If you are looking at this app, don’t just close the App Store window after you see the price. Ask the developer for a one time fee option. Or else instead of skipping the app, download it and rate it zero and tell why you didn’t keep it. I will probably be ignored by myself but this company has lost countless students by trying to extract a subscription. All my teacher’s students would have bought it except for seeing the endless ongoing fee.
  • Where in the ...

    By T. Browning
    ... hell have you been all of my life! First guitar lesson in 1976. I learned to play but had to rely heavily on ear. Now, just about every song i can think of is available here in guitar TAB, and it’s descent TAB! I’m finally able to clean up my chops a bit. If anyone has any desire to play, you can no longer blame it on not finding any guitar TAB. Thank you!!!
  • So far, so good.

    By Basement Bassman
    Edit update: This app is about as comprehensive and flexible a learning tool as you’ll find anywhere. The ability to slow it down in increments is extremely useful, and the song list seems to be growing constantly. Original review: I purchased this app with some skepticism after reading some not-so-flattering reviews, but within months, the reviews got better so I grabbed it. I used to go to a website called Bassmasta, but for some reason, I wasn't able to on my iPad. I'm new to bass guitar after a pretty bad injury forced me away from drums. This app is an excellent learning tool and I have yet to find any obviously incorrectly tabbed songs. It's pretty good. Well worth the $5 or whatever I spent on it. No retreat here!
  • Bug fixes

    By chord junky
    After using the app for years, the developer made an app mod that resulted in the app not showing chords or tabs unless one subscribed to the service. Once they were notified (by myself and I assume others), they fixed the problem within about 24 hours. This is a great app and the developers response was equally great.
  • Credit Where Deserved

    By Bdogg82
    I’m not going to lie I was not happy when the latest update rendered the app unusable for old users who purchased the app before it was a subscription service. The developer once aware of the issue was proactive to fix the issue and it now works again as promised. I honestly feel with as much as I’ve paid in monthly subscription fees to use the web browser based version across all platforms that I should at least get to keep the app version that I bought long ago for a one time fee. The app itself is excellent and a vital teaching tool for me.
  • Already purchased and not working

    By MaxPower@1982
    I bought this app about 7 years ago and use it often. I love the app but now it’s trying to charge me $4.99 a month for something I already bought. I’ve reinstalled the app several times and still the same thing. Tells me I can’t make in app purchases when I try to restore but when I get into settings, there isn’t an option anywhere to allow in app purchases. Not cool. One star till it’s working again.
  • Current update kills legacy subscription

    By SuperDaveage
    Beware! Do not update if you are a legacy lifetime subscription owner. This update will terminate your subscription. If you reinstall the app as it suggests you will also lose all tracks on your favorite list. Terrible.
  • Good app

    By Geeman002
    But now they want 5.99 per month for chords, not worth it.
  • Was a great app

    By Cap'n Colby
    Was one of the last truly free guitar apps out there now they want to nickel and dime you into a monthly subscription. I’ll stick with the Ultimate Guitar app instead. See ya!
