Major Update Issues

UPDATE 2: Tools not working again. The bugs are super annoying, but the app in general is great to learn songs quickly.

UPDATE: the tools now work fine that I uninstalled the app, restarted my iPad, and reinstalled the app. I restored my purchases before signing into my account. I don't know if that helps, but that was my train of thought.

FIRST REVIEW: I've had this app for a long time and I also had the standalone Guitar Tools app. I was glad to see that they tried integrating the tools into the Tabs app, but the disappointment came when I saw that the Tools add-ons could not be restored within the Tabs app. In other words, I had to repurchase the tools to use them within the Tabs. It didn't end there though, now whenever I switch to the tools section within this app, it crashes. I really hope it gets fixed very soon.

Best Guitar App Ever

I just got this app and I haven't gotten off of it until now to write a review because I am so happy with it. I had gotten a guitar for Christmas and I hadn't touched it, only to try to figure it out myself, but that didn't work. I finally was so desperate that I just got this app so I could play all of my favorite taylor swift songs ( she's my absolute favorite artist!!). It was a lot better than what I thought it would be. I can finally say that I can play popular songs on the guitar. I recommend this app 100%!!! Not only does it give you the exact lyrics, but you can see the chords to the song if you don't know how to play them, like me. I think you'll really enjoy this app if you have a guitar or ukulele.

Pretty good...

Awesome database of tabs & charts -- but as with any database,you get those few that just miss the mark or have wrong chord changes. Overall, a nice app layout. I just wish it were easier to access the favorites or bookmarked charts. The app has a "tab of the day" type window or box that completely gets in the way of the bottom toggles. Very annoying. And if that window isn't blocking it, a type-in prompt window gets in the way and blocks access. Just needs to fix a few major bugs and this app would be perfect.
