Good app but I accidentally payed 20 for it and I didn’t mean to.any way I can get my money back
Don’t bother unless you’re buying 1/5
The free features are hard to use without tripping yet another reminder that you haven’t upgraded. It’s a pity they made the sales funnel so steep, but you can tell a lot about a company by the way they treat their least valued customers.
I love this app 👍 5/5
By Isaac N Smith
Thank you to everyone who helped make this app. I’ve gotten so much better at playing the guitar since I started using this app. I absolutely love this app and would totally recommend it to anyone who wants to learn to play the guitar. Also if you want beginner guitar lessons go to YouTube and look up Marty Schwartz beginner guitar lessons.
Decent but could be much better 3/5
App has a lot of nice features and a huge library of tabs. But you knew that.
What it lacks is having too many bugs and is not as user friendly as it could be.
Bugs revolve around the tabs themselves not playing until restarting the app or the progress bar being misaligned.
Usability issues include the main navigation buttons being covered up by the iPad Pro gesture home bar so it is difficult to see and hit those buttons with thumb. Other issues include clunky way to go ‘solo” on an instrument. You have to click the instrument then click it again then hit the tiny ‘s’ button. Songsterr does this much easier. Whatever instrument you’ve already selected, you just hit the solo button. Another issue is that the speed feature is difficult to get the exact speed you want. It’s just a slider with know points of reference to easily select the speed you want. Finally, the zoom feature is great, but it’s difficult to get the size I always want since there are no presets and you cannot set a default zoom for all tabs.
They took away the app. 2/5
I bought this app a few years ago. It was a few dollars, which I thought was strange because it was free online. I figured that the ease of access and the formatting would make it worth it in the long run. Since I bought the app, they started a paid subscription. Now they have taken away features that I have already payed for and they expect me to give them more money to get it back. Absolutely criminal, class action level scummery. That being said, the basic access is still available to me and is decent enough.
Gets to select songs and will not scroll up to hit next or select songs it just freezes up on iPhone AND MY IPAD WHAT GIVES
The videos 1/5
I used to love this app. But recently when you hit the listen button and it plays the song on YouTube, it will only play the video when it’s full screen. And because of that I can’t see the tabs to play along. I’ve sent an email in and didn’t get a reply. So maybe this will work.
Tabs won't come up on horizontal mode. It worked better before so called update. Please put it back like it was. I bought everything but the lesson pack and was considering buying it at $4.99. But not now. I have to agree with rocketsocks01 on his review. Otherwise excellent app! . DRC. I did buy all the options. Hopefully whatever is going on is fixed.
Used to be good 2/5
By The AwesomeDino
It’s a sellout. Simple stuff that was free before requires a premium. Ads popping up everywhere, I wouldn’t recommend unless you plan on spending money
Great app!!! 5/5
Love this app, a must for anyone trying to step up there musical game!!
Best Guitar Tab App Ever 5/5
Seriously. This app has almost any song you need. I use it everyday. Even to just save some songs for future practice sessions. Highly recommended.
Cancel the whole thing 1/5
By ge dog
How do I cancel a package or the whole thing 🤷🏾♀️
Best app 5/5
Best app for tabs, chords, charts, and lyrics. It’s a bit clunky but getting better.
It’s always been a good one and to this day it still is. It’s one of the guitar players ‘Go-To’ or ‘Must Have’ apps.
Needs update! Otherwise love it. 5/5
Been using this to jam/teach my daughter guitar. Has been seamless in playing YouTube video/audio minimized while reading lyrics and chords. Now YouTube has to be in full screen to play so we can’t see the Tabs content. Apple devices. Please fix!!!
Revised: Developer contacted me and said YouTube issue will be fixed in a couple days. Other than that it’s perfect. Let’s me spend great time with my daughter and our guitars exploring new music on the fly. She doesn’t believe we got 3-4 tabs a month from magazines when I was a kid.
Sometimes people who play guitar don’t want to pay for an app to learn songs. 2/5
By Sweatshirt Child
So hey. I’ve been a guitarist for 5-6 years now. I love guitar and have started playing more challenging songs with ridiculous chords, and Guitar Ultimate always seemed to have the best sheets online, but I don’t have a printer. So, I decided to download this app, I was unhappy to find out to see a songs sheet, you would have to pay a monthly fee. Are you kidding me? I’m not asking for much more than a few chords that people created. People. Not just the creators of this app. I’m not asking for a step by step play along. I’m asking for four chords. I love guitar, but I’m not gonna spend 7$ a month to slightly inconvenience me less than the website.
good app 5/5
i think that it’s so worth a try. i’m a complete beginner and now i can play songs that are on the radio.
I love this app! 5/5
Simplify, change keys, scroll as you play, AND be able to watch/hear a video AS you play - just awesome. Thanks for such a cool app! I use it constantly.
By the captian 8675
Kinda expensive and it works though
I like the app, but... 4/5
First off I enjoy the app, it really comes in handy when you can’t figure out a particular guitar part. My only gripe is that I previously purchased the Pro version on Android and when I recently switched to iPhone and connected my google account (that I purchased Pro with) to the app, it still required me to purchase the Pro version again. I won’t pay again and there is seemingly no way to restore my previous purchase. This is pretty disappointing as I use the app frequently.
Guitar Tabs Review 5/5
It helps with any song I’m playing and I can transpose which really helps the songs that I’m playing. You can also use chords to play the songs on piano. It’s really great!
This app has the best chords and dabs for guitar, I have learned so many from it
By Mr.El Perfecto
Worth the pro
This app helps me learn real songs 5/5
By P Swan
Hey, I was looking for so long for real tabs that would give me real results that would have an outcome that sounded close enough to the song I was searching for. This app has all the songs I’m looking for, and I’m getting great results every time . I highly recommend this app. It was actually recommended to me by an employee at Guitar Center. :)

What’s going on with this app lately? 2/5
By Doctor Rocks
Used to love this app for its efficiency and elegance, but a few things are driving me crazy about it as a performing musician.
I paid for the pro version and it works well, but very inconsistently. Here are my gripes:
1. Suddenly becomes very sluggish in opening songs - which is awful when it’s a live performance, which seems to be happening more and more frequently (on all my devices, iPad Pro, iPhone - with all updates installed). I cannot explain how maddening this is. I click on a song and nothing happens. I have to shut the whole system down and hope for the best.
2. Very slow (painful) and laggy with keyboard strokes when typing in a new search. Again, it sometimes works without a hitch and the next it just stagnates and the third letters take about a minute to appear in the search box. What’s up with that?
3. Very inconsistent in “finding” and actually “remembering” Bluetooth pedals like the air turn bt-106. I have to reprogram it every time - what a hassle.
On the edge of returning to my other tab and song lyric apps - not as cool, but SO much more reliable and trustworthy for a gigging musician. I cannot have lyric apps that crash or freeze during a show and this one is proving to be so inconsistent. So disappointed.
This app has helped me a ton to get better at playing acoustic. I’m not sure if there was an update but now when you try and play the song while looking at tabs it won’t work anymore. Please fix!!!!
They just take your money 5/5
First time I paid last year worked fine not a problem one. Then it’s time to purchase again so I did but it will not allow me to use any of the features wants me to buy it again. SAVE YOUR MONEY! There has got to be better apps that work just as well if not better so I’m gonna go look and will post what I find.
Long time musicians champion 5/5
By Russell - Idaho USA
I have used Ultimate-Guitar.com since the end of OLGA (remember that fine collection ruined by record company lawyers?). They seem to have retained and expanded most of the OLGA collection and spirit.
I recently contacted the staff to see if the artists are being compensated by their inclusion here and received a detailed personal response to this important inquiry explaining what is done (I think their explanation should be linked to the front page).
Thank you so much for keeping this collection alive for the use of broke musicians like me, all over the world!
Great tool 5/5
This app has help me to become a better ukulele player
YouTube no longer plays in the App after last update 4/5
I love this app and one of my favorite parts was being able to listen to the song while I play but it seems that feature doesn’t work after the last update. When I press “listen” it pops up the YouTube screen in the window but does not play. Please fix as this is a huge reason why I pay for this app! Thanks,
Great app 5/5
By JESUS freak TL
Best chords app I can find. Has so many extras now and always updating to new and better things.
I don’t know what to title this 4/5
By almutlak leah
I think there should be something added so you can mark where you’ve memorized.
Not nice 3/5
I did not like to be prompted to download the app from the website. Once I downloaded the app I was not able to open any tabs without upgrading to a subscription. Waste of time for me.
Can you read this please? 3/5
Can’t play the music separately. I can only do one thing.
Please let me restore my purchase. 1/5
Every time I push on the “restore purchases” button, it doesn’t proceed any further. But when I push on any other of the buttons it proceeds further. It’s like the app doesn’t let you deal with your own money.
Can’t get Listen feature to work 1/5
By gorilla 75
Since the update I haven’t been able to use the “listen” feature from Youtube. Before, I hit listen & I could play along. Now, I was just able to get one video, of several I tried, to play but it won’t minimize to let me play along with the music.
Amazing app! 5/5
There are only two minor issues that I have with this app, but otherwise it’s absolutely amazing! It’s very helpful and has enabled me to learn a lot of new music. My only issues are 1: that there are ads after almost every tab I open, although I understand that they run a semi-free app and they need income somehow, and that the menus seem difficult to manage to me. It’s nothing that makes the app not worth trying, just a couple small issues that I personally find annoying. If you’re on the edge about getting this app even though it’s free, definitely get it! It’s completely worth it! And maybe premium too.
Tremendous App 5/5
Responsible for any improvement I’ve been able to make in my guitar playing and song portfolio. Playing paying gigs because of it. Thanks to the community for making it such a great app.
Confusing and tricky. 1/5
Why do I have to pay to use this app when I can get all and any tabs you have for free on google?
Amazing lessons 5/5
This app lets you practice and learn millions of songs and its free! I feel by practicing with this app I am truest become a better guitarist.
Ukelele chords 5/5

Thanks for all the people here who submitted ukelele chords 🥰
Great tool 5/5
By Charlie Mopar
Many hrs of enjoyment !
YouTube Playback 4/5
Overall I love this app, it’s helped me a lot when it comes to playing guitar. However, on this most recent update, it won’t let me play along with the YouTube video. Now it makes me go full screen to play the video, so I can’t look at the chords and listen to it at the same time
Nope. They’ve removed features ! Bait and switch. 1/5
By SoCal feedback
Find another Tab app. Developers have REMOVED features in order to upsell. Auto scroll, chord ideas, etc. They’ve baited and switched features which lured us in and are no longer there. WORSE, Pop up ads are everywhere and all the time !! Makes the free app un-useable. It’s not the money; it’s the principle. Seeya
It is really bad this game is really fun I like playing in this app is really fun I want a lot of new socks I love you I love you I love a big big ugly socks degenerate
TOO expensive for an unknown! At least, if I could see if I could do something with it, I would try to find the money to pay since I am 73 & retired with no income except Social Security.
Expanding Usage 5/5
By Director # 13
I usually hate when apps try to expand their functionality. When Instagram and Facebook added “stories”. The way they try to trick you in to giving them your time.
Ultimate guitar is the exception. Maybe I’m biased, but I love the new features
Broken repeats in tab pro 4/5
By Brett L. P.
For those interested in the tab pro function of this app I would like to know if you have this problem. When the song has repeats the sound of track goes to a completely different section of the music. This also occurs on first and second endings.
Normally I’d give a 3 star for this being so annoying to deal with however I have found the devs really do respond to users and every problem I have had in the past always gets fixed. Honestly love the app and strongly recommend.
