Ratings and Reviews

Great app!


Just downloaded and got a subscription to guitar player (yes you do have to get a subscription). It looks great! Love the videos in the app. It is really great! Thank you for creating!

Performance Pitiful


Content is Great as always. Still my favorite for mainstream guitar pubs, but execution of the app is horrible. Just browsing issues is a waiting game. I usually run for the bookshelf to find the paper version because it hangs trying to first determine if I have a subscription (I do), then whether I have downloaded the issue, if not, a painful waiting game, instead of just downloading in the background like it should. Navigation is horrible. Entire app needs to be re-thought, like many Newstand application. Can't blame GP though. It's time Apple step in to standardize the. UX across the store and publications better, to make it easier to find things, open things, manage downloads, preview. Not that every Newstand publication/application needs to work and be the same, but execution needs to be more intuitive in general.


Franky Panic

After being lured with a free issue that they then tried to charge me for I deleted this garbage app. I've been a subscriber of Guitar Player since 1976 and I thought I'd give the digital edition a try (especially since the printed version has gotten so bad over the years). I would think digital distribution would give publishers a chance to embrace a new technology and innovate, but in this case, a I think not. Guitar Player, you've been an old and dear friend and ill miss you-this experience just motivated me to finally stop reflexively renewing my print edition.
