New update has caused a problem


I would like start of with the negative and finish on a posative if I may, the new update has cause a problem with the settings of the gear you can no longer view the settings that was there since you have made this app free like for eg... green day one of my lies I can now no longer go in to the actrual settings that were used so I can now no longer copy that sound to my own amp and make my guitar sound like billie joe Armstrong’s guitar please could you look into the reasoning behind this thank you now the posative is I absolutely love this app I was able to sound like any one of the bands I liked and I could even find ways of making a new sound from other bands and mix there gear up to make a new sound and love it but thank you again...

Hi dannybigboy, sorry for that! Can you please write us at @tonebridgeapp on Twitter or at, we'll try to fix the problem :-)



I love this app I have always wanted to play my favourite songs on guitar with their original tones and all the tones I have tried have been spot on with the recording and I requested for a preset of a song that the app didn’t have and less than 24 hours I got a noftication saying the preset has been added to the app I can spend hours using this app just messing around with the different tones. Well done UG you have made such an amazing app here all of my guitar tone dreams have come true I can finally sound exactly like Metallica haha

Great App


This is a great app. I have paid a lot for the likes of Amplitube and although good and feature rich in regards to recording etc you can’t beat this as a free app. The effects and presets really are good. I would like to see more “modes” for each song ie intro, verse, solo etc but you can configure this on your own presets. I can’t see why further down the line they couldn’t complete well with a PC DAW version! Well done guys.
