Customer Reviews

Updated review - Needs a major change

I love how this app shows what song I'm playing and then I can tap the name and it'll pull up the tabs it finds. LOVE IT! Makes searching so easy and I can even save them as favorites. I used to use the website and TabToolkit but this one is so much easier than the site and blows the other app out of the water. I wish I would have gotten this one sooner and saved the money that I used on the other app!

Update: 12/15 - still love this app. Buy the premium. It's worth it!

Update: 09/16 - no change! I still highly recommend this app and the premium addition!

Update:12/16 - did you get it yet???

Update:09/17 - dropped to 1 star because even though I paid for the upgrade, I get the stupid Tab Tracker as every single time I open the app. I've already said I don't want it. Ask me once a week or just quit asking. I don't want it. If you guys change that stupid pop up I'll go back to 5-stars. It's a great app but this annoyance is enough to turn it to absolute garbage.

Great list of chords and tabs

Things I like: auto scroll, layout of app, the amount of chords, ukulele chords

The thing I don't like: 50 bazillion ads about buying the full pack. Click a button, receive an ad. Plus they constantly advertise as 50% or more off the app price, ALWAYS. I have never seen it full price. I think this is very shady and it tries to trick people into thinking they are getting a good deal and "do it now because it's limited time only". Yeah right.

Annoyed user

It's incredibly annoying when you're trying to look at the website, with absolutely no intention of getting the app, and every time you scroll you're bombarded with this annoying black box that won't go away and constantly tries to redirect you to the app. I DO NOT WANT TO DOWNLOAD YOUR APP. WHY CAN I NOT JUST LOOK AT THE WEBSITE WITHOUT BEING PUSHED TOWARD YOUR STUPID APP? I'm done, I'll be using a different tablature site from now on though, that's for sure.
