Update: Crashes

I bought this app a while ago. I used this all of he time and just recently decided to update it, but now it crashes when I try to open it😢. I restarted my phone and closed all background apps and have the latest software update. I'm not sure how else to access this? Once the crash is fixed, I will return and change my rating, because truth is as someone who is relatively new to the guitar(about 1.5 years) I loved this app! I had built up quite the library and it was so helpful and convenient when traveling rather than packing books.... up until this last update, I would have rated it 5 star, but now I can't even open it without it crashing. I wish I had read reviews about the update. I never buy apps, but for this one. I also never tend to update apps, unless there is a known bug fix. Im not sure if these developers know of the issue, or if they are working to fix it, or if they care😕??I don't want to delete it and re download it because then I'll lose all the songs I have saved🙁

***UPDATE: I returned to change my review back to 5 stars! I emailed their developers and they were SUPER quick to respond! Not only did they help me get the app working again, but all all songs in my favorites library were saved🤗! I know some mentioned things getting erased or something, but if you're reading this having the same issue I did, just email the developers OR just uninstall and reinstall the game👊

I use it all the frickin time!!!

I love this app!!! As an 80s baby, I used to look up Tabs/chords on the website on the computer. Now just to whip out from my phone and all of the options and tools… love it so much it's crazy because I use it all the time just to warm up or play leisurely to their tools and hand parentheses such as tuner, metronome, lyrics, etc.) The only thing that I could say I would make it better is to have more exclusive artist along side the mainstream. While this app has huge variety of genres and artists, I wish it had more of the unknown artists and their chords/tabs. I still have to look it up on the Internet from other sources then this app and even on the website. Also like most things that are worth that some of the in app purchases are a little pricey. Please note: that last comment is not a complaint just a wish and an opinion. I still have given this app five stars because it is just amazing and all the pros outweigh any improvements/ wishes granted. Thank you to all the developers who shows proof of their love for music and their makers.

UG Tabs HD is a Must Have

There are no other iPad/iPhone apps with this number of features, enormous catalog of songs, and huge community support. The ability to also use Tab Pro in the same app is great. While there are some community submitted tabs with errors, some are *wink *wink that way with a few notes out of order so as to undoubtedly avoid any kind of copyright infringement.

Easy to use and works with your online UG account so your favorites will be synchronized. The addition of practice goals, video recording, commenting, user profiles, Tonebridge (if you don't have it - get it now - I use IK iRig HD2), and choice of chords, tab, tab pro, etc. make this the best guitar app for reference and practicing. This app is like having a Jamopedia Brittanica.

Thanks developers! All the new updates are outstanding.
