Ratings and Reviews
It's OK, has potential to be much more interesting
One of the very first guitar simulations I bought for iOS, which is still after all this time is only designed to run on the iPhone (app does not take advantage of the iPad size difference).
There are several other teriffic apps which could be called guitar simulations, for example "Steel Guitar" by Yonac, and "Pearl Guitar" (which has fallen into disrepair and is no longer updated by the developer). These were designed to take advantage of the larger format available on the iPad and both have many more options. Please update this app and make funding the development part of an in-app purchase! Please!
Exactly what I wanted
I just wanted an app that allowed me to play on a guitar. You can't really play like you would be able to a real guitar, but I can write basic riffs on it. It also allows you to change the tuning you're playing in. You can change the strings individually too. It's got a guitar, bass, uke, and some pedals with effects like wah, distortion, and echo. If that's what you're looking for, this app is perfect.
PocketGuitar had potential
The app could have gone far, the fact a user can move up and down the neck is terrific. I would rather see an app like this that anchors at nut where the head stock is and has frets sized respectively. Obviously you have to reduce size, but for heaven sake distances have to be proportional from fret to fret. Now that I would buy, I bought this piece of 2nd rate dev crap and I am actually amazed it still loads on current ios. Doubt that would still apply if implementation were par for the cours(e) and PocketGuitar had been a playable iGuitarAPP.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
