You can easily select the part you want to learn, slow it down, and loop it with full control of each track's audio. On guitar, bass, drum and keyboard tracks, handy instrument guides show where to put your fingers, or in the case of drums, which drums to hit. There's no better way to accelerate your learning or have a fun jam-along session!
◼ More music: TabToolkit now includes the Tab Store, with hundreds of affordable, officially licensed, accurately transcribed songs, and more being added all the time. TabToolkit also gives you easy access to your own guitar tab collection, supporting text, PDF, and multitrack rich tab formats. You now have 3 ways to get great music: buy from the Tab Store, upload from your PC, or search online.
◼ Richer music: With TabToolkit, you can get full scores for your favorite songs, with complete notation for each guitar, bass, drum, and keyboard track, as well as vocal tracks with lyrics. TabToolkit includes multitrack audio synthesis, based on high-fidelity audio samples of over 190 different instruments; playback quality is outstanding. TabToolkit's music notation is unmatched for visual quality and smoothness of animation, and includes gorgeous full-resolution rendering on all Retina displays.
◼ Compatibility: TabToolkit supports several multitrack music notation formats, including Guitar Pro, Power Tab, and our own Tab Store format. TabToolkit also supports text tabs and PDF-based sheet music; note however that text and PDF tabs do not support advanced capabilities such as multi-track notation and audio playback. TabToolkit works on all iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch models, and delivers highest audio synthesis quality on newer models.

Bug fixes and performance enhancements
A great app for viewing guitar pro tabs
NOTE TO READERS: YOU CAN ADD FREE TABS EITHER WITH A COMPUTER OR WITHIN THE APP ITSELF!
I installed this app on an iPad 1, which I intend to use as an electronic music book. The app was attractive to me because it can display and play gpx files, but was almost half the price of guitar pro’s own app. As I have no intention of editing tabs from my iPad (far too fiddly), I decided to try the cheaper option. Files open quickly (both on the iPad and my iPhone 5s) and the interface is intuitive, if not idiot-proof (see the 1* reviews of the current version for details).
I added about 40 of my own (FREE) guitar pro files by selecting ‘download’ in the app and pointing my computer’s web browser to the ip address displayed on the iPad’s screen. This brought up a simple to use interface in my computer’s web browser that allows you to add both guitar pro and text files. Transfer was quick and painless, and seems to work provided you can follow simple written instructions (i.e. be on the same wireless network and don’t navigate away from the download screen on the iPad until upload completes). I have not tested adding tabs inside the app itself, but it appears to operate as a normal web browser (mine brings up google).
In summary - a neat app for viewing and playing guitar pro files on the move.
Complete rip off!
I paid 2.99 for this, I Expected a pretty decent selection of tabs to be included for this price, but no, I have to then purchase them for 69p each! All that's included are a couple of obscure tabs, and some exercises which can be found for free online. I feel like I have been robbed and will not buy anything from this developer again.
A few tools missing from this Toolkit. It's just a player.
Note to oneself. Read the description more carefully before buying apps in future.
No tab creating facilities in this app.
Otherwise useful tab player.
