2-24-2018 Review 1/5
Don’t get the update!!! BUGS. BUGS. BUGS.
I love this app, but... 3/5
By Elise Hallstoos
It lags so much now and glitches out. It takes me almost five minutes to access one song, and it’s not because of the WiFi. I’d appreciate it if you could get rid of these glitches. Other than that, the app is great!
way too limited 1/5
By YOUR MOOOM
horrible how you must pay in order to do simple things in this app. just deleted it an from now on will only use the computer version
Better hope as a musician 5/5
I hope this app can make into a better guitar, bass and all around musician
Happy old guy 5/5
By Bergee Kenneth
I love, love, love, this app :-)
I can’t count how many apps I’ve purchased that I have either lost interest in or never find a use for. Tabs is an app that I’ve had for years and I return to use it often. The five star rating attached to this review reflects how I rank Tabs interface user-friendliness, the platform of tools, and the expansive catalogue of musical interpretations that they have amassed. I would rank their value to me on a different scale altogether and I have to say Tabs has turned out to be a 10 out 10 when ranking the overall enrichment gained from joining Tabs. Simply put, tabs is the best music enrichment tool that I have used. It cost almost nothing and it keeps on giving.
Thank you Tabs!
Amazing free app with true benefits on Premium 5/5
You all did this app so well! It truly is a service in the free version, and the premium benefits are actually worth the upgrade. (I have not upgraded yet, don’t have the money for it yet, but I would feel like it was money well spent when I do.)
Don’t hesitate! It’s worth it 5/5
Game changer for me. Makes practice and learning fun. The added tools in this app replaced 2 other apps for me.
I had always hoped for a tab app that was easy to use , yet expansive enough to cover a wide spectrum of musical interests. Its here, nowhere else to look.
Feels cheated 3/5
By Nishad tupe
They first said while buying the app everything will be visible after i purchased the app .. lessons were not visible this is unfair
Love it 5/5
Ran by great people. Love the app.
Add back the realistic sounds! 4/5
Realistic sounds were removed on pro tabs and I am pretty upset! They were renamed ‘backing tracks’ and are ONLY on the official tabs! I am pretty upset! Please add them back!
Not a free app 1/5
This is advertised as a free app, it’s not. Nothing will work, unless you pay the subscription fee. If you are looking for a free app, this isn’t it.
tabs responded that 2.1 million songs are free, so I re-evaluated. Well there are some things that you can see for free, as soon as you click on something, the sales pitch launches and when you close it, you are back where you started. The one star review remains. Check out Yousician it’s much better.
Get it! 5/5
Great app! Even has the obscure songs that I look for, and it’s nice to see a community of people submitting their feedback and support. I’m pretty stingy, but this is a must have.
Not just for tabs, great for finding song chords!!
Great Update 5/5
Love the changes on the new update! All around better layout and love the auto scroll option. I use this app literally everyday. Best tab site on the net.
iPhone app 4/5
By Little Darrell
This is really a great app! I just started learning to play guitar and this app has really helped me! The reason I gave 4 stars cause I also purchased this app for my iPad worked for a while but stopped! Maybe you guys can fix that problem!
Thanks again for a great app!!
Great App! 5/5
Fast, easy to use. Large library. Been here for YEARS.
Used to be better 2/5
By Princess Cold Heart
With the new update of the app, I feel that they are going in the wrong direction. The interactive tabs now sound terrible and they have removed the realistic sounds from them, and replaced it with the official tabs which are not available for every song of course. There was an issue with some of the tabs pre update that the repeats wouldn’t function properly, and now almost every song with a repeat is malfunctioning. As the interactives scroll down you can no longer see the upcoming line until it’s playing already and sets you behind a hair. I used to live on this app and now I am contemplating deleting it if it is not fixed.
WAIT FOR AN UPDATE (FEB 23 2018) 2/5
I would prefer the app not be so hard to use and have the same look forever. With the newest update the app is clunky and sometimes unresponsive.
Newest Update not tuned for IPhone X 2/5
Been using this for years as my go-to tab app and never had an issue. I have never commented or rated before but this newest update has taken more steps back than I can stand.
My tabs in landscape orientation is cut off by the divot at the top of the iPhone X. I also can’t use the quick scroll bar on the side in both landscape orientations either, it only shows the letter A through S.
Alongside this, the newest update to pro tabs doesn’t stay in time if I go to 1.1x+ speed, the music will play at the right rate, but the actual tabs are lagging measures behind.
Also the pro tabs doesn’t save which instrument I play anymore. So if I close the tab and reopen it, it reverts to the first instrument in the list. Even if I use the second or third instrument.
Sometimes the tuner indicator will disappear entirely. Restarting the app helps occasionally.
Finally there’s a bug in which my tabs will seemingly reload multiple times, so if I try to scroll down it will put me back to the top of the list, not allowing me to choose anything past a few rows down.
I love this app, use it nearly everyday and will happily give it the 5 stars when these issues are addressed.
Edit: Gave an extra star for dev response, I appreciate being heard!
Awesome app 5/5
By Puppy love122
Helps with any song you need it is on here
I am currently working on Jolene by Dolly Parton
Just Learning, Happy with all this app offers! 5/5
I’m a beginning guitar player and am so happy with all the lessons, music, and resources available on this app. It’s really over the top! Thank you so much!
By Caring Player
I really like this app and it does everything perfect except that autoscroll isnt free. It seems like such a core feature that their just keeping for the money. Beyond that great app.
Free autoscroll please.
Don’t be Foolish 5/5
Only a fool would ignore the treasures this app provides.
New update 1/5
By Cat whispers
Tools don’t work and I can’t even search tabs or find anything at all even going to top 100 -iPhone 7
Crashes every time I try to open a tab
Easy and Awesome 5/5
Best music app online. Period!
Awesome app 5/5
This is probably my favorite app. I love it
Took away my tuner 1/5
I payed before to have the guitar tuner and they took away the app and now you can only have it back if you pay monthly 👎🏼
Here’s your review 3/5
By Baby Blue 23
I like this app, it’s good. The only problem is, every time you log on to it, it has to create a ton of friction between you and your goal of playing a song by shoving “deals” in your face, giving you a tour of the updated app (seems like they update every hour) without the option of exiting, and then the random ad pop up.
Congratulation on your hard work from beginning to the newest latest upgrade.This app along with the tonebridge is phenomenal.Your app decides how I choose or like my Apple phone, as a matter of fact, the Apple8 has no headphone port to let me use my tonebridge and I’m not happy with my phone.Congratulation to the best music app in the world.
Don’t waste your time 1/5
I PAID for this app and it forces me to watch commercials and go though tutorials about how it’s changed every time I open it. This app is a scam because ultimate guitar redirects mobile browsers from the perfectly fine tabs a quick search will find on any desktop site. There’s so much pointless junk they’re pushing as in-app purchases it’s not even worth trying this app. Use safari and search for tabs from a different database instead. This is my third review because the developer harasses 1 star ratings trying to justify their for-pay advertising platform that contains shoddy crowd sourced guitar tabs as a second priority. Ultimate guitar was a decent website before the mobile boom, now it’s just Greedy developers trying to exploit young musicians.
By Ghost Apocalypse
The best ever, pay for the power tab
Great app. Love it 5/5
Use it all the time. Tabs are very good and accurate.
Loyal to my app 5/5
I’ve invested in a lifetime subscription because this is one of my partners for my music, it keeps getting better everyday and also has even more songs and settings as days goes by, Im in love
Disappointing “improvements” 1/5
I have been using this app for years now, and it seems like over the years Ultimate Guitar has tried to make the app a “better place” for us all. Well... a recent update has changed every familiar aspect about it, and has successfully messed up the interactive tab function so that skipping around to specific parts within a song is now incredibly frustrating, and dysfunctional. The audio no longer matches the moving tab as you skip around in the song, so you end up hearing something that was wherever you left off as you look at something you wanted to hear instead.
Please fix your mistakes UG...
Horrible Update 2/5
Ever since updating the app, it’s been freezing A LOT! It freezes while scrolling through songs or when you go back to your favorites list.
Also, I don’t like the new layout- The option bars at the top and bottom (where you choose the speed or where you can choose to watch a video on the song you’re playing) cover too much surface of the screen, making it difficult to see the entire tab.
With these new changes, it makes it VERY annoying to use the app.
Aside from these huge setbacks, the app has a great library of tablature. The Guitar Pro option is awesome, except that it NEVER aligns with the actual song- the speed is always off.
By Reyes v3
Works for any level, 99 fire, seamless and easy to follow along, my saving
Thanks For being a great resource for guitarists. Your app gets better all the time. Hoping more of the reggae and rocksteady that I love starts showing up… Dancehall reggae bass lines would be another thing I want to see. Thanks. Keep improving and growing.
"Let's take away something that works with everything and replace it something non universal" 3/5
What's with developers removing good features. The "realistic sounds" feature was removed in place of the "official" feature that only applies to a few tabs whereas the other one worked on every tab pro version.
Seems to be that I'm the only person talking about this.
For me - this app helps so incredibly much. It’s super easy to use and has a wide variety of features, like the adjustable auto scroll and instant transposing, that makes it incredibly helpful for on the go jamming or performing. The wide selections of songs available at your finger tips in an easy to use format is worth the price of admission. Definitely recommend.
Used to be 5* 3/5
This is the only app I have that half of my touches don’t register. Can tap for however long I want and only every now and then will it pick it up.
Chord diagrams, tuners, other tools and everything are awesome. But it’s becoming frustrating to use, and I’ve used this page much longer than it’s been an iPhone app.
The best, and only, app I use to get my guitar tabs! 5/5
This app has become a great companion and is an essential for every guitar player.
Great for “What key are you in?” 4/5
I am a harmonica player. All I ask of a band I am working with is tell me the actual key you’re playing in. Too often, they only know the chord they’re starting with. It becomes immediately evident that that’s not the key.
I just do a quick search, check either the chord list or read a bit of tab, and I can quickly determine the key.
The folks who contribute tabs are amazing and your presentation of them is critical to my playing.
I also play guitar and learn something everyday from the App... usually that there are people a whole lot smarter than me contributing to our enjoyment of music.
Keep it up!
The leader in Guitar Apps 5/5
Been using for years! Never disappoints!
Been with UG since the beginning... 5/5
Keeps getting better, and, their platform continues to grow! Always a nice surprise finding more and more compatibility with other apps I use, as well! Showed my dad, downloaded it on his iPad, and, his mind is BLOWN!! He hadn’t played in years, and, now he’s half-bragging about his crippled, cramping fret hand! For me, that’s everything! Thanks, guys, keep up the amazing work!
I have a Tabs subscription on my iPhone but it doesn’t work on my iPad. These greedy clowns want me to subscribe AGAIN to get full access on my iPad. Nope. I will instead just cancel my subscription altogether and find one of the many other apps that aren’t so ridiculous.
The only guitar app 5/5
This is the only guitar app
Looking good 5/5
A keyboard player 5/5
I use this app all the time for keyboard chords. I play with a few different lineups & it really helps me out quickly!! Great App!
This is the best tab app EVER. PERIOD. 5/5
What the title said.
