iFretless is a guitar fretboard re-designed for maximum playability on iOS devices. It replaces two handed playing and strumming with a one-touch-per-note design that enables fast, precise playing of melodies, scales, and arpeggios and real-time control over the pitch of each individual note. iFretless is not an imitation guitar for your iPhone; it's a powerful new way to make music.

Ratings and Reviews
Yeah, you should get it, if...
If you are looking for an expressive playable software guitar. iFretless bass is my favorite of this collection and I use the bass app for clean guitar parts due to it’s flexibility. This app is still great and you can run it through other amps and efx besides the ones that came with the app. The quality of this collection of apps is such that one should get the entire collection. With some practice, very good and convincing music can be made!👍🏾
Nice interface, sound could be improved
I started out using the iFretless Bass app and was impressed with the well-thought out interface and relative ease in creating convincing baselines very quickly and easily. Since iFretless Guitar shares the same interface, many of the same pluses apply. The biggest drawback is that the guitar sounds are not entirely convincing compared to Apple’s GarageBand guitar and the Steel Guitar app (by Yonac), which is far superior in terms of providing realistic guitar simulation that is quite pro sounding. I’d love for this developer to work on adding the ability to pick chords and strum to iFretless Guitar. It’s a wonderful app that would benefit from a little more engineering and sound tweaking.
While other apps stagnate, the iFretless apps just keep growing and getting better.
Very nice sounds and music are just a download away. While it is certainly capable, I don't see myself using this like a guitar too much, but an instrument of it's own unique and delicious flavor. It is very adept at evolving drones, for example (try sliding your fingers up and down independently on two or three strings). Special effects, yes, and great for hammer-on/pull-off arpeggios. This one is going to stay on my iPad, without a doubt.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
