TUAW: "...pretty easy to strum out a few of your favorite popular songs this weekend"
OMGuitar comes from the makers of Seline HD & Touch DJ! It is a synth with unique interface and new-generation sound hybrid engine that allows anyone to produce realistic synth guitar sounds.
There are 6 guitar types to choose from (more in updates), both electric and classic.
OMGuitar is very playable and truly expressive. It responds to the speed of your guitar strumming, catching the emotion of your melody. The quality of the guitar synth sound is so high that it can easily be used in studio work as a quick method to produce realistic rhythm and arpeggio guitar tracks. You can also engage the autoplay functionality with lots of built-in rhythms!
True guitar simulation on the touch-screen device is now possible thanks to the advanced artificial intelligence algorhythm that analyzes your style of playing and alters the sound accordingly.
There is a dedicated string-picking/arpeggio interface, represented as a column of 6 buttons, which can easily be played together with the string strumming interface. Note bend effect is achieved by swiping the button area.
The glowing neon strings themselves respond to the speed of strumming and the distance between themselves and the initial screen tap. The player is supposed to strum the guitar with one finger and place the second finger on the guitar at any time for muting all the strings (this option can be turned off in the settingsmenu). With such approach, many common guitar playing techniques can be easily accomplished.
You can choose from about 300 chords to play 99% of the songs ever written. The songs are conveniently saved as chord sets and can be loaded with a single tap.
Some of the world's best and most expensive guitar models have been sampled with great precision and act as the source for the synthesis engine. There are 6 completely different playable guitars, 3 acoustic and 3 electric. The tone can be further shaped with the 3-band equalizer.
OMGuitar has 10 built-in effects with over 50 presets: 2 types of Distortion, Reverb, Delay, Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Wah-wah, Vowel filter, Compressor, Tremolo.
OMGuitar now supports external fretboard running in iPhone via the free Amidio Remote app (just like the Futulele).

What's New in Version 2.11
+ Two new amazing Ultra-quality guitar sample sets: 2013 Studio Steel  & 2013 Studio Nylon !
+ Improved Playability
Amidio is on fire! Another update offers two new guitars making this the the most playable strumming guitar out there. Plenty of features …FX, auto strumming, MIDI out …. it's really good.
My only request is a way to play some solo scales … like the existing tapping buttons but playing scale notes. Theres room on the guitar's pick guard!
It's worth the price and time to learn it.
Very very cool
Although you can't play a ripping solo, if you play guitar you should by theory enjoy the realistic sound of
This guitar simulation, and if you get good with this app you can practically perform for your friends and entertain
A small crowd. Very rich guitar sound, almost real! :) enjoy the future while it's here.

Hi great for strumming but I think you need to be able to set which notes you want in a chord so you can play chords in different neck positions . Also effects should be able to set parameters instead of presets . And a mode for playing notes on the neck of the guitar by frets on whole neck , or at least till 12th fret
