Progression, a guitar tab editor for your iPad, gives you the convenience of an easy-to-use guitar tab creation tool right at your fingertips. An incredible app for any guitarist or bassist, Progression gives you the ability to write, edit, and playback guitar tablature or regular notation using real audio samples. You can capture your musical ideas anytime, and with the mobility of the iPad, you can take this helpful application anywhere!
With a user-friendly interface and simple, interactive entry fretboard, Progression gives even the inexperienced guitarist and bassist an abundance of functions, including but not limited to: vibrato, slides, string bending, hammer-ons, pull-offs, whammy-bar, bass slap, effects, mutes, harmonics, and more…
In addition to the tab editor you also can hear your music performed with real audio samples, giving you the most realistic playback possible. Progression comes with acoustic guitar, electric guitar, and bass guitar. You can even select to add additional instruments such as classical guitar, acoustic fingerstyle guitar, mandolin, and banjo.
You can search for tabs online directly from Progression. View some of the most popular tabs at places like Ultimate-Guitar.com or download legacy Guitar Pro or NOTION files from numerous sites that you can playback and edit.

What's New in Version 1.2.90
Compatibility with iOS8
Worst app I've ever purchased
This is the most UNINTUITIVE app ever. I'm 3 hours into it and still on the first measure. I'm writing simple tab and it is so frustrating. I've been on the forum, emailed customer support, read and re read the guide probably 30 times. Stupid. I want a refund. The people that say it's intuitive must be employees.
Needs more work
Not intuitive at all...
If anybody at Notion is paying attention, read this!
This app is so terrible, it's obvious nobody at Notion has given it more than passing glance. For example, the multi-selection to is nearly impossible to use. The left-hand handle takes dozens of tries before you can move it.(Touches on it seem to conflict with menu bar above it.). You can't have used this app and not noticed that.
Usability flaws like that abound, making this one of the most frustrating apps I've ever used. Stick with ASCII in a text editor.
