Editors' Notes

Whether your idol is Eric Clapton, Slash or a local garage-band legend, the first step to your own guitar godhood is practice. Ultimate Guitar Tabs has a breathtakingly vast catalogue of songs to learn, letting you isolate tricky chords or play along at a slower speed as you practice your fingering. It’s both newbie-friendly and advanced enough for veteran shredders, with a cool suite of built-in tools, including a tuner and a metronome. Heck, it’s even got ukulele tabs. Rock ’n’ roll is truly universal.

Hugely Disappointed


This honestly was my favourite app for guitar, but let me stress the ‘was’ part. This update was awful! For starters, I had only recently purchased tab tracker only to find it has been scrapped. So, feeling done out of my money, I emailed through the link in the app to query, no response. What a waste of money. I had bought every feature on the app as well. Then ever since I updated I have been getting awful glitches and the app is barely working. Every time I try and search for a song it gets stuck on the little loading sign and never stops, until I come on and off and try again a couple of times. Then when I try to open a tab or song it says error so that doesn’t even work! Also I have been trying to clear out old things that I have saved but every third delete it starts glitching and doing nothing. The whole design is too dark now and I hate the look of the app. When I am reading the chords I can’t tell the difference between F and E, and it is nothing to do with my eyesight. Aside from all this, in my opinion the app just looks a lot uglier and not as nice to use. Why change a good thing? The old version was amazing! Not to mention having tab tracker, now a waste of my money. Very disappointing for such a great app. Might start looking for better options for guitar apps.

Developer Response


Please update the app to the latest version.

5 stars until latest update


Latest update has made searching your favourites list cumbersome and clunky. Typing in the song name at the top searches the entire database so you have to figure out which you saved or open up each one by one. The alternate way to find your songs is also just as bad; that being scrolling the list of your favourites. The screen scrolls for a few swipes then locks up for five or so seconds, making finding songs very frustrating. Often ends up opening the wrong song as you are actually trying to swipe down to keep scrolling the list.
Developer has returned my emailing confirming user have reported these problems and that it is currently being changed back to how it was before.
Waiting for these changes to be done as using the app now is terrible compared to before. You end up giving up trying to find the song in you list that you were searching for as it’s a complete faff.
Why are these changes not put to the user first in an in app forum. Or simply tested before being implemented as surely one test would reveal the changes do not work.
Please don’t spoil what is otherwise a great app, and up to now my most frequently used app on my phone.

I'm sorry but we didn't cause the old version to crash, everything was working just fine. I hope you will like the new version better than the older one.
