    I've been using this app since July of 2015— With Ultimate Guitar, I promise you, the price for the whole package is completely worth it :D Thanks to them, I'm able to learn to play any song I can think of! I even found tabs to songs from YouTubers! No other site/app has given me the same experience & kindness as this one. Rock on, Ultimate Guitar, & thank you sooo much for this update! :) 🤘 Full Review

    So pay per month to exercise premium contents(pretty much everything). At least give us the metronome if not the tuner for free. Then more people will use the app and shall be recommended. We already have browsers like Chrome and Safari to access those tabs easily. The point is to have one app which does it all, not separate apps for tuner or tab player (Guitar Pro). It's easier to download a free metronome and keep it forever than pay monthly for it I guess. Full Review

    I've always liked the app but I had a particular song I was dying to learn and couldn't find tabs for anywhere! After posting in their request forum a highly detailed and interactive tab incluiding guitar, drums, bass (the whole shabang) was put together by their team and I received an email with a link informing me that it was ready to go! Thanks guys! Full Review

    Well done! It is still very yet holds a wide variety of options. The update is brilliant! It can only be described like picking up that sought after guitar for the first time. It looks good, it feels good and it virtually plays itself! There is not a single flaw with this app. Even the new logo is boss, maybe could do without the horns or whatever they are but not a reason to shy away. Full Review

    After the latest updates this app is unuseable. Takes atleast 5 minutes just to open the app itself. After opening the app i try to go to the tabs ive saved and it takes another 5 to 10 minutes to load that page, then another 5 to 10 minutes to open the tab i select! I spend more time waiting for the stupid thing to load then i do actually playing guitar. This app used to work flawlessly, now i wont even bother opening it. Thanks for absolutely destroying an app that once was amazing. Full Review

    So many ads even though you already paid for the app. I paid for the app and have been using the simplify and transpose function. After the update, I cannot use these anymore and they are asking me to pay monthly to use the things that I have already paid for. I already reinstalled the app and logged in but it is still asking for money. Total ripoff! Full Review

    After a great launch, I nearly abandoned this gem when they began asking for more and more account and device privelages -- access to my contact list and such. The latest version is a guitar player's dream, even if I will only run it on an old Samsung Tab 3 on a secondary Google account to keep some sense of privacy. I've played for 35 years, some professionally - and its great to have a nearly unlimited song folio at your fingertips. Key changes, scrolling lyrics/tabs -- one of the single best, most fun apps to have when jamming. Dont know the song someone suggests? No problem. Just tell me what key you want, and I'm right there with rhythm or lead thanks to this app. Full Review

    The best app out there when it comes to tabs and chords. Even as a ukulele player my needs are met. (Although ukulele chords seem to have ?temporarly? disapeared...) Update confirms that they are listening to their users ! Full Review

    Way too many advertising So you pay for an app but then you still get spammed with advertisement. Really dislike that. Tabs are great, but that's from their website. The app shouldn't push more sales Full Review

    When they first published this app, I was not a fan. However, this new update has completely re-done the whole interface. It seems like they really took users' complaints and suggestions into account. Very satisfied with the new version. Full Review

    Sucks up system resources in the background. Transpose is broken. I save a transposed tab and it mucks up the chords. Have to remove the tab from favs to get it to show correctly. It even breaks if I just toggle out of the app and back again. Full Review

    Keeps getting better and better, I just hate all the promotional pop ups. I just want to get to my music as soon as possible, I don't want to have to go through the same promotional stuff over and over again every time I open the app. Add a "don't show me this again" check box please. Especially for those who have paid for it. Full Review

    I had the old version rated at 5. The new update is an absolute mess. The whole app is laggy, the search function is finicky. Every 10 minutes my phone tells me that this app is using 13% of my phone's processing power, even after i had closed the app several times. Why is your app using up so much power on my phone running in the background? Why is your app running in the background at all? What is your app doing with that processing power? I've uninstalled, and reinstalled. No change. Get it together. Full Review

    New updates has killed the app for me on Samsung s8 and tab s. Takes an age to load. Zoom is broken. Autofit removed. Love the layout but the app is unusable at the minute. Will change review when fixed Full Review

    It's the worst app I bought ever: First, you pay for it, ok. Then once you open it, it says you need to pay more if you want the full features. Ok, I understand and I don't want the full features, just give me what I paid for (pure tabs and chords). THEN. You browse for tabs and it is lacking of them, I couldn't find the tabs I was looking for, I just found that tabs with player (part of the full features) and it asks if I want to pay for that. And LAST. I checked their FAQ, it says the app is paid because you got lots of official tabs there. Then WHY the hell the tabs shows "Tab by 'User' "? (If you didn't get it, means users submit tabs by themselves so isn't "Official tabs"). Full Review

    I gave this app a one star cause of the following bugs: 1. Unable to save tabs on my playlists. Sometimes it works most of the time it doesn't 2. Does not sync to my desktop account 3. The controls to add or delete a chord sheet on my playlists is very buggy Note: I am using the purchased version I love the concept of this app and it's chord library but the bugs really turned me off. If these bugs can be fixed I'll definitely change my rating. Full Review

    New rating. Again. This is now easily the best tab app. Biggest catalogue no ads (for me) quick loading. Sleek design. Thanks UG for listening to your users and acting on criticism! Full Review

    Aaron Plunkett Published date: February 21, 2018

    I am very happy that they made the app free. Ads are a bit annoying, but that's what you should expect. Accurate tablatures and chords, even the obscure tabs are on this app. I love it! Full Review

    Wisdom Mills-Owoo Published date: February 24, 2018

    I cannot believe they REMOVED features for their PAID version in an update and are asking their users who already PAID for the app to pay a MONTHLY subscription to get it back. What?!? That's terrible, you hate your users. Full Review

    Norma Summers Published date: February 23, 2018

    So far so good. I was a little confused because it seems i paid for a lite version. Once in, i was offered the full version for more money. The initial purchase made me think i was buying a full version. Needs more clarification. I paid for the full version but after logging in on my new device, it is prompting me to buy it again. Not cool. I am not paying again after paying twice already! Had to install just guitar and not tab pro. Tab pro was not letting me use tuner or anything without paying first. Just 'guitar' without the pro in the name allowed me to login and use my account that I payed for. Full Review

    Shawn Maass Published date: February 23, 2018

    This app was great, pre-update. However, now it is glitchy, and after reinstalling, i lost all my purchased features. No problem, it has a restore purchases button, right? Nope, that's a dead link. Why even have it if you know it's dead? What they do have are a complicated list of Uninstalls and reinstalls. But, after finally making it through their list of stuff to do, oh, nope, still not restored. But I can pay three bucks a month to get back what I already paid for. Thanks, no Full Review

    Blah... update not as good as the last app. I get lifetime access as I had already paid but I feel sorry for anyone new as you now have to pay $7.99 EVERY FREEKIN MONTH. Full Review

    Matthew Banton Published date: February 22, 2018

    Ever since the new UI update, using this app to play songs with my uke has become a lot harder. You removed the button to easily turn guitar chords into uke chords. And the songs that are specifically made for uke show the strings in the wrong order when you press the chord to find out the fingerings. It's extremely frustrating. I expected more from an app that I PAID FOR. Please tell me this is a bug with a quick fix because I really used to like this app. Full Review

    App is great. There do seem to be doubling of the playlists, but they could be different playlists, and it's a minor issue that doesn't take away from this being a fantastic tool for musicians. Full Review

    Julie B. Published date: February 24, 2018

    Update: love the new app. Excellent Excellent work! Update most recent: they fixed it! I had only 1 issue and they fixed it! Update:only 1 complaint...in the Android app, please stop going back to the very beginning of my thousand songs so that I then have to get carpal tunnel scrolling back down to the end again. If I want a certain song that starts with 'W' for example..and I click the wrong song...i back out and im back to 'A' again. Scroll scroll scroll scroll scroll back to W but then when im done I may want a song that starts with 'T' God forbid. However... im not getting ANY annoying ads?? i did pay for the upgrade. But unlike so many reviews...im not seeing the ads. Also..lots of times for beginners like me, the person that created the tab does not complete it. So when attempting to play a song I have to stop, scroll back up to the beginning in order to repeat the chords. They have remedied this with the new "personal tabs" which you may edit just for yourself and save it to your own playlist! Love it!!! _______________ I've made play lists and love the variety of music. I like that you can look at different tabs created by different people and they might be completely different from one another but yet they both might sound really great. This is definitely my go-to app out of all of the apps out there Full Review

    Why did the speed for auto scroll change from BPM to some arbitrary scale? The numbers don't match up at all. Also, whenever I try to submit feedback, it indicates that "there was an error with User Voice". Full Review

    Shambro i Published date: February 24, 2018

    Up until this point, Ultimate Guitar was disgustingly money grabbing, especially for those who had already paid for the app. Trying to force extra cash from already paying users with frequent pop up ads and urges to pay for membership. Almost everything, sparing the absolute minimum was locked behind paywalls. Though since the new update, ultimate guitar seems to have made their first ever pro-consumer choices. Making all aspects of the app completely free. Gone are the pop up ads and calls for membership, and even 'professional' tabs, which once required a monthly membership to access, have been made free to all users paying the upfront cost of the app. Ultimate Guitar has reclaimed it's position as the absolute quintessential essential app for guitar players. The absolute best on the play store. Full Review

    New update looks great, except all the text on buttons in the app is strangely cut off in the middle. It sounds bizarre but I don't know how else to describe it. Like the "Listen" button says "Liste" and the "Cancel" says "Can-". Please fix it. *UPDATE*: I found the reason: this app doesn't play well with my phone's custom fonts. I'm using OnePlus' official slate. EVERY other app I have (over 100 apps) can handle it just fine, so I don't see why this one cannot. Full Review

    Good app overall and does sync with website, but their business model is most annoying : I paid to have more features (can't remember what anymore, it was a long time ago), yet they still want me to pay more and spam me with ads. Disappointing. Full Review

    I have learned a lot with this app. I love the feature that tells me alternate chords. Though some songs I would like aren't on here, it's still the most expensive library I've seen on any guitar tab app or website, and it's free. I love the new update, it's very smooth. Full Review

    You know it's really fun when I have to squint at the screen using tab pro on horizontal mode because half the screen is taken up by a huge 'RATE THIS APP NOW' (which I've already done) and when I try and zoom in to see the notes it just zooms back out on its own because God forbid that text is pushed off the screen. God damn ridiculous. Already uninstalled and logged back into my account and it didn't fix anything. Somehow you made this app worse than it already was. Full Review
