What's New in Version 2.5.2
Stop the spamming!
When I bought this app, I paid over 10 bucks for it. That was fine -- it was a good app. However, I've recently been getting spammed so badly by the app whenever I try and use it, that when their forced upsell was presented to me (as others have noted, it's almost impossible to find the close X on these things now) I bought it just so I could get to the main app to tune my guitar for a gig. Of course, Apple compounded that problem because the upsell was supposed to be 1.99, but Apple waited so long to charge me, I got charged 2.99 -- for something I just bought only to stop the spamming.
There really should be a way to report this kind of agressive inap purchase attack because this isn't the only app that does it -- but it is one of, if not the, worst.
I also noticed that there doesn't seem to be a customer email contact for these guys, so I will NOT be buying anything else of theirs.
Get rid of the ads
Save the advertising for the free version. You are quickly gaining a bad reputation and your business strategy is unethical (if that matters to you). I get it, people buy the app and you still need ways to make money. So make useful additions as in-app purchases. What about an in-app song player that slows the speed of a song and allows the customer to learn a solo part. How about connecting to a forum or community that includes some sort of file sharing info. This has been a solid app for a long time, but I have no problem sending your app to the trash if it's not going to function quickly for me. I want to open it and get started. I don't want to watch an ad on a $10 app. Save your business and be smart.
This app does exactly what it claims. Plus the best guitar tuner I've ever used. Well worth 10$. Buy it. You won't be sorry.
Update: you actually will be sorry. Putting ads in a program people paid for is one of the crappiest things a dev or company could do. I'd advise anyone with influence in this company to take a look at your plummeting rating. It's gone from almost five full stars to almost one. Including ads for people who paid 10$ is not only disrespectful to your customers but it's illogical and just plain stupid... like shooting yourself in the foot. Our only hope is someone with a modicum of business sense will correct this absolutely horrid decision and remove all advertisements for the people who paid money for this app. Until then i am chagrined to have to change my rating of this program to one star because no stars is not an option.
