Disappointed to say the least


I just downloaded the new app after using the old one for a very long time. I had high hopes that this would be good and that some features might return but I’ve gotta say I’m disappointed.

One thing that made the old app so great was the ability to play along to songs from the music library on your phone. This feature was taken away forcing you to use Apple Music. It has now returned but you need to manually select the song and that’s only if it finds the song on your phone! Some tabs have slightly different spellings if it’s not the same it won’t give you the option.

I had hoped that in the new app it might have given you the ability to select where you want to play from and the ability to manually search your music library but it starts a video in the corner! Yeah thanks for covering a big chunk of my screen and using my data, not. At the very least you could have enabled people to minimise this window without stopping playback.

I think I will stick with the old app until some improvements are made. At least I can still play the some of the songs that I’ve purchased.

Thanks a lot for your feedback! I'm sorry to hear that you are unhappy. Please contact me at with your Sking1985 username and I will try to help you personally! Waiting for your response.

It’s such a great app...too bad its money hungry.


This app is great, I would use this all the time, if it wasn’t for one little thing, it constantly shoved down your throat that you have to buy premium. Everything you do, it will remind you to give them money. Every other feature is only unlocked by spending $8 a month. Which yes, is cheap for certain things it has. But if I don’t want it, don’t force me to get it. Just a tip, don’t put on dark mode if you don’t have premium. Because you can’t access any tab after you accidentally turn it on. Unless you get premium. This could be such a good app. But if I don’t want to spend money. Don’t force me to.

Only tab pro and official types of the tabs require subscription.
First time ever the whole Ultimate Guitar database with more than 1 million chords are available for FREE on iOS. You only pay if you want additional Pro features or access to official tabs. That's really cool, no? All the tabs in our database are legal and licensed so we pay royalties to copyright owners. That's why you need to pay for the app. You can learn more here:

It’s come a long way


UG have really improved this app to make it much more user friendly and advantageous to touch devices. The iPad version is awesome as the interface is so easy to use. I especially like that they’ve finally made it free without a subscription. The suggestions on the home screen are also good. One change is that it should have the favourites area accessible from any page instead of having to click back constantly till you reach the home page. Big improvement overall!
