I bought the app and had all the benefits, but now you have to pay a monthly fee. Not happy that I got the raw end of the deal. This is NOT worth $120 a year. Go find other available apps out there for much much less.
I use their site so I downloaded their app. I never even launched the app after reading all of these reviews. I’ll pass for now.
Everyone and their mother wants to nickel and dime you nowadays. You can’t just buy things and everyone wants a subscription. Every time I see someone trying to gouge users for a subscription I hope they crash and burn and go out of business. You can’t even play songs in the mobile app anymore without purchasing a subscription. It’s virtually useless now. Every app maker is contributing to the splintering of the market and inviting piracy back into common use. Shame.
Great trucking app I’ve had this app for years it’s awesome
Was the best tabs service out there, until they sold out. Paid for a lifetime subscription but now they’re charging monthly and you get absolutely nothing without paying. Will be using ultimate guitar from now on
I had been looking somewhere to get guitar tabs, I found the website, and highly enjoyed it. When I found that there was an app, I downloaded it, but found that you had to pay for a subscription for the whole song. The website doesn’t require a subscription for the whole song. I would recommend leaving the app alone and use the website
Great app I use it everyday
$6 a month to read tabs? Maybe like a one time purchase of this app would be ok, but seriously yet another monthly subscription? Hard pass.
This app is crap it’s not even an app it’s a kids game that doesn’t give you the sheet music for the tab you are forced play along with the song
They’ve got a great site where you can view the whole tab at once FOR FREE. The app only lets you view tabs in a side scroll which isn’t fun for learning new pieces, and you also have to pay to view more than 3 bars or so. Why? Just have premium services people can pay for like with on the website, rather than just not letting people view anything for free. Might as well just charge for the app in the first place instead of pretending it’s free when it’s not.
