I feel like I was just robbed 1/5
I was hoping to export to pdf with one of the songs, but now I have to pay 7.00 or more for that function. It’s lame. I want my money back.
Not the full version?!?! 1/5
As soon as I open the app, I am greeted by successive pop ups asking for me to purchase the “full version”. I’m sorry, what did I just pay 2.99 for? This will be the first app I have ever sought a refund for. I am sure it has lots of great features but 3/4 of them require a purchase! Most of this information can be looked up for free with a simple google search. Nope.
Need much improvement. 3/5
Many of the tabs I have used have been fairly decent. But many of them absolutely terrible. When you use the interactive tab, most of the music that goes along with the tabs aren’t matched with the tabs themselves. So the tabs being played on the interactive fretboard, aren’t going along with the music making it very difficult to play along or learn. There’s is also the brain and chromatic tuner problem. When using the brain tuner, I need to reset the app each time because it won’t make any sound for me to hear. With the chromatic tuner, I can play an E and it’s trying to tune a G. The tuner cannot pick up the string I’m trying to tune. Which isn’t a huge deal, it is a tuner on a phone. Lastly, I spent about $15 on this app with upgrades and I have nothing. Not sure what my money went towards, but the app keeps asking me to pay to get new features that I was under the impression I already had. When purchasing, it said I had all features, so still very confused. But what I have learned from this app has been good, lots of great tabs to choose from, just wish it functioned better, and wish I got my money’s worth.
This App is the reason I have an iPhone, combined with Guitar Toolkit 5/5
It’s just so great, it’s so vast, it’s so wonderful we have these facilities, it’s just amazing. All these songs will live on in our minds as well as our phones. Once mastered, we transcend what is possible and move into the ethereal realm of imagination.... combined with chord theory, all these songs make sense
Fantastic tool for guitar, bass and ukulele 5/5
I bought the upgraded version and its been worth its weight in gold. Easy access to favorite tabs and searching for new ones.
Ads are killer 2/5
Ads are killer. I don’t want to be asked to upgrade every time I open app or tap around. I’ve paid for the upgrades I need, I don’t want the rest.
PAY TO PLAY 2/5
First the app costs $2.99 to download and then you have to pay either $25.99, $12.99 or if you're lucky get the 70% discount and still have to pay $7.99 to get the "Full Version" You should have just charged everything together instead of tricking me to pay $2.99 for an incomplete app. You don't mention THAT in your description.
Best app EVER!!! 4/5
I have been using this app for ever!!!! Has helped me get the tabs/chords to songs I've always wished I could play when I was younger and newer songs!!
Want to play guitar? 5/5
I won’t waste your time, if you want to learn and excel at guitar, bass, or ukulele download this app. Give them a small amount of your money and get to work! It’s a great resource and platform for ambitious musicians and I’ve been using this website/app it seems forever. If you love playing, learning and mastering your favorite instruments and songs use this app.
Bad used to be good 2/5
I bought full version but its making me buy it again tbis has happened 2 times
Great App! 5/5
Having been using this app for years to learn songs. It has always been a good app, and new features are just improving it!
The best out there. 5/5
By Skeet Johnson
Simply the best app to learn to. Hands down.
You have to pay more in app for all the features 1/5
All the features advertised here are not there by default. You have to pay more. It's a scam
Don’t get full app 1/5
By Zaxeez baboon
Paid for the app at 2.99, immediately get pop up for the full version at 12.99.
Works great. 5/5
If you gotta learn fast... 5/5
This is the very best accessory you can buy, period. Great value and best way to learn new songs when needing to learn many quickly. Highly recommended when learning covers as well as taking on challenging new stuff!!
NOT THE FULL VERSION 1/5
By Guy Who Reads PDFs
As soon as I downloaded it, paying $2.99, they tried to upsell to the “full version” for $12.99 more.
Already learned how to play! 5/5
I️ am a beginner to guitar, and thanks to this app, I️ have learned how to play guitar!
Awful. Scam for sure. How is it when I actually PAID for this app (which I now know is just the online free tabs transferred to an app) for a few bucks years ago they still want me to give them money now for the full version? The definition of the bait and switch. I can hardly find any proper tabs without having to upgrade to "pro". I've given you guys money and in return you've given me almost nothing. Thanks a million!
Edit to developer- you clearly didn't read anything I wrote. FAIL!
Useless and confusing scam 1/5
By Snuffy the dog
Worst app I bought in years and that includes FREE apps.
Don’t make the mistake to spend your money on a half locked app that is just a glorified web search.
They spam you with ads to buy the overpriced full version. This kind of nonsense deserves 1 star. Don’t support money grabbers.
What you get for $3 is not what you are looking for. False advertising.
-> update to developer response:
Not true - the screenshots in the App Store show mostly premium content which is only available after in app purchase of 20+ dollars. That is false advertising.
Love it! 4/5
By Yes, it's Erik.
This app rocks! Thanks for teaching me all this stuff.
Great app! 5/5
I use this app constantly and I love it!
Pushy Developers 3/5
I really like the content on this app. When it comes to finding tabs at a whim, there is no other resource that is as reliable as UG.
However, there are some thing about the app that become frustrating very quickly. Just about every time you open the app an advertisement comes up that tries to push you to buy the next version up even though I already paid for the basic version of the app. Also, sometimes the app is not too responsive to variations in cell service with messages that come up saying “could not find network” even if I have four bars of LTE coverage.
Overall I love the content, but I’m not a huge fan of the constant ads and sometimes the functionality.
A no-nonsense straight forward approach to Finally learn (and sing-along ) as you truly learn to play guitar! I spent a lot of money with many different apps, instructors and classes where I'd only end up frustrated putting the guitar away to collect dust. Finally, the BEST user friendly app. I'm actually playing!---Tk you!
Filled with features I'll never use, but theoretically like to have - tons of chords for casually strumming a song I'll forget five minutes after the campfire burns out. Perfect!
Great app! 5/5
Hands down the best tabs app in the App Store.
Worth the money 5/5
When I first saw this app I was hesitant to buying it because I wasn’t sure if it was worth the money. But it definitely was. This app has everything you would ever need. Totally thankful to have this app!♥️♥️
Once I installed it asked to purchase the full version 1/5
So I purchase it for 50 percent off... once I purchase it a new banner comes up limited time 75 percent off... like why even do that? now I have to live with the fact I paid and extra 5 bucks. In the app world thats 5 other apps. Unacceptable.
By Weather man 1
Has a lot of good tabs I use it for almost everything. Warning it is still very important to be able to read sheet music
NOT BEGINNER FRIENDLY 1/5
the app isn't beginner friendly at all you have to pay $3 already then pay almost $30 more for thing you'd want to come with it already
I enjoy this app a lot 5/5
This app has a huge selection of songs to learn. Any song you want to play you can easily look up using the search bar. There are different versions created by different users for different skill types. It's very easy to use. If you don't have a song picked out in your head you can look in the top 100 and find songs you never thought of to play. This app definitely helped me with my guitar skills and allowed me to play different genres over the years.
Be Aware This is NOT The Full Application 3/5
Immediately upon downloading I was excited to test out all the bells and whistles this $2.99 app would deliver, considering you can just go online and look at these tabs for free. The first thing I noticed about this app is that the developers have intentionally removed in-app features in order to incentivize you to spend another $8.99 to buy the FULL version with those features included. The app in its $2.99 isn't all that bad, if you're looking for tabs it'll get the job done.
Excellent app, bug-free experience. Developers integrate useful tools; thank you for the Spotify support.
Guitar Tabs 5/5
Love it!!! 🎼🎶😊🎉
A must for guitar players 5/5
I have learned so much from this app. Can't get much better than this
Just starting 4/5
By Sports Split Step
Loved a song by Willy Nelson called “A Horse called Music” and wondered how one was disposed to load the lyrics and notes. Entered the My Music Tab and put the title into the search box. Bingo! The lyrics and notes came back for Randy Travis original version, which was exactly like Willy’s version! This APP seems to work great, more to come later.
How many times do I have to pay? 2/5
I was hoping for an app that was easy to use that I could look up the tabs for my favorite songs with, but this app, along with Ultimate Guitar overall lately, is just too difficult, clogged with ads and videos I don’t need, and I paid for an upgraded version but nothing’s different. Disappointing.
Pricey Scheme 1/5
I bought this app for $2.99 and downloaded it. Then I tried using it, only to discover that I had to pay $7.99 more to "unlock" it. What a waste of time and money!
makes the world a better place
Too many ads! Misleading on capabilities of this version 2/5
By Nayo Bon Bayo
Downloaded this app to help me learn a tune. Was hesitant at first but once I read what the capabilities were I thought for $2.99 who can go wrong. Well I guess I did. Every time you open the app an ad pops up wanting you to buy the rest of their products.
According to the apps description in the App Store you get all these extra things with the app like a tuner and videos. No such thing without paying for the extra version.
One thing it did do was once I got the song downloaded to iTunes it would allow me to play it while the tab was open.
App itself is good 4/5
By The niha
The online resources for ultimate-guitar.com are confusing.
Invasive popups 2/5
App is riddled with Pop ups that beg you to buy yet another add on. Just let me search for tabs already!
Really amazed 5/5
Finally paid for the app. I've used the free Ultimate Guitar Tabs the website for over a decade and so was reluctant to pay for this app. But I did. Really, really cool. I love playing music and I wish that I would've paid more attention to the nitty gritty music theory lessons my mom tried to give me when I was younger. Thank goodness for this app! It has music theory articles which are very digestible. I also really love the concept of Tab Tracker. If I had a suggestion to offer it would be to allow users to pencil in goals for the day on tab tracker or at least type a few words about what they worked on that day. Basically, I like that this app is helping me to grow as a musician.
Great for researching songs 5/5
This app helps me to quickly find the details of a song that would take much longer on my own.
Love this app 4/5
I use it all the time. My only peeve is that sometimes i go to use it and it forces me to watch the new featured step by step and then “ say thanks”. This is frustrating as it is usually when i am hurrying to pull up a song.
Great and helpful app 5/5
I almost always find what I’m looking for here. Very well done.
It has helped me alot
Amazing App 5/5
This app has taken my guitar skills to new levels and given me hours of enjoyment through access yo quality tabs and chords of songs I want to keep playing. Love this app, one of my top 5 on my phone and my favorite by far on my laptop.
I’d buy it 100 times 5/5
I love this app and it just keeps getting better. Thank you!
