TUAW: "...pretty easy to strum out a few of your favorite popular songs this weekend"
OMGuitar comes from the makers of 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 algorithm 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 3.1.1
√ By popular demand, added more basic strum patterns and basic chord patterns!
√ Continuous Auto-Strum without holding button, just slide off.
√ Default to Common Chords for more rewarding first use.
This and the ukulele version are my two favorite apps ever.
Excellent Guitar App
This guitar app is excellent, especially for someone like me who's always wanted to play guitar but could never get in tune with it. This app has enabled me to use it in my songwriting. My second album will have this app all over the songs.
Update 12/20/14: The new developer has updated this app to be able to save chord sets with iOS 8 devices. A great app has become even better.
06/07/17: Still the best virtual guitar app! More and varied auto strums added for even more nuance and expressiveness. A+++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Astonishing virtual guitar app.
Permits focus on harmony and rhythm without the rigors of fingering. Music educators take note!
Added 8/15/2017: The latest version has important improvements. Sliding off the auto-accompaniment button leaves it engaged, and some simpler accompaniment styles have been added, along with a pallet of simple chords. The new styles and chord pallet will be especially useful for older, more traditional, music.
