    I purchased the Pro version and it's awesome! So far I've found tabs for every song I've looked up. Some songs have multiple tabs and are rated by the uses so it's easy to find a good version. And the pro version of the tabs is excellent as you can listen to the song while playing as well as slow it down to help you practice. Great job! Full Review

    App works great except when I open it I have to click on it twice... First one it tries to launch then shuts down but 2nd time around is fine. Update 8/26/17: all bugs are fixed from the last review. Great job guys! Full Review

    I like that they updated the app today. I am however extremely disappointed, as a hollywood musician with little income in the beggining of my career, to pay for this expensive app and not have backwards compatibility with the computer when i study... meaning, i can use pro tabs on my phone and have to pay a badrillion dollars to do the same function on a computer screen...

    I'm gonna be honest. It's the best guitar app I've found. They have a huge selection of songs. But that doesn't mean it's not still garbage. The back end must be super crappy because it's way slow and crashes all the time. The format for all the songs is really hard to read but I guess you can get used to it. The part that I think is the worst is although they make you pay a ridiculous amount, there are STILL ADS! Full Review

    I bought the premium version of this, probably as much to shut it up, as anything else. Imagine my dismay when a shirt time later it went back to asking for money every time I opened it up to use it. It's a decent app, but enough time goes by for me between uses, that it seems like every time I open it up it is asking me for something. Meh. Full Review

    Even though the website is fine, the app is a disaster. People who pay for the app, myself included, still are bombarded with ads for the premium version that you can not close unless you go 'back'. Once the app is downloaded, all tabs from browsers are opened under the app, but the sharing links only work between devices with the app and can not be opened from the web which is very inconvenient and illogical in terms of efficiency and practicality. I understand that you are trying to make money off of the app, but you are sacrificing a lot of practical aspects that an app should serve its users in order to promote your application. These methods completely discourage me from wanting to purchase the app on other devices. Full Review

    Don't spend money on this app thinking the ads will go away. I've spent money upgrading this app twice, and I still get greeted with one or two ads every startup. Update: Sent an email to them as the support suggested. All I got was a like to their FAQ page. It wasn't even a link that directly answers my question. After looking through their page, I couldn't find an answer. So yeah, that's how helpful they are. Tl;dr: Buying this app will not get rid of the ads. Full Review

    Those ridiculous ads you idiots added to app start up makes this app virtually unusable. Good work; you've tried to push monetary add ons so much that now I won't be using your garbage at all. Full Review

    Great app, looks just like gp6 when I had that, just wish I had read far enough to realize that i paid for essentially nothing more than what the website offers me. And to get the best benefits I have to pay again. I love the app and the website and go back a very long time, just wish I didn't have to pay twice for a good thing. Full Review

    I paid for the full for the full version of this app to stop receiving ads, but thats not the case, still ads all over trying to sell pointless addons. As a result, I am going to deduct a star everytime an ad pops up! I wonder how long it is before it gets to a one star rating? Full Review

    They've listened to us and it's perfect. I'm honestly concerned they'll "fix" it with more updates that will break it. Tuner w/ different tunings. Videos and lessons. The ability to make playlists for sets, tunings or capos... Just awesome. I've used it now for years. Full Review

    1. I've already BOUGHT the app, but the devs keep popping up and telling me every chance it can get to upgrade even further like screw off 2. Every second it wants me to rate the app. Get over yourselves it's just an app! Also I already rated it 5 stars! Guess I'll just have to re-rate it. Please stop with the popups. Full Review

    Joe Donahue Published date: October 16, 2017

    I had rated this app 5 stars. Kept asking me to rate it. Dropped it to 4 stars. Still nagging me to rate it. Now down to 3. Hey developers, stop nagging me with obnoxious splash screen to rate the app. Do that and you'll get 5 stars again. Edit: After devs told me to just back out of nag screen, I dropped to 2 stars.

    Although the app itself is fine, the ads are completely ridiculous. I already paid for the app, but can't open it without being blasted with adverts for further paid addons. What's more, you actually push notifications on me to upgrade the app. It's entirely frustrating and ensures I'll never dorms another penny on upgrades I may otherwise have bought. Full Review

    I paid for it a couple years back, but now it's bothering me again to pay... bothering a lot. Edit: Customer service was quick and easy and they restored my previous purchase. Hooray! The app is still laggy though. Full Review

    Stop pushing ads to people's devices via push notifications after they pay for the app. I know I can press the back button in the app to close the cancerous ads there, but don't spam other areas of my device. That's abuse. This is a good tabs/chords app spoiled by disgustingly aggressive advertising. I'm ashamed that I gave money to this developer. I will update this review if the developers fix this promptly. Full Review

    Eventually caved into buying this App after the constant pitiful begging for money which was the experience of using the Ultimate Guitar website. Should have known better, the App instantly and repeatedly bombards you with THREE pop ups asking you to buy a further premium App. I have never seen anything like it, what an utterly disgusting company using the monopoly they have on guitar tabs to inconvenience their user base into giving them more and more money, absolutely no dignity DO NOT BUY Full Review

    The app itself for what it's intended for is great. However I'm fed up with the deceptive ads. I purchased this app a couple years ago and now I get ads asking me to upgrade again. Full Review

    Extremely helpful app, ive used ultamate guitar tabs for about 5 years now. Its the thing thats made it easy for me to look up nearly any song I can think of, and learn it on the guitar, its a beutiful thing. Full Review

    Great app to have together with the web version. Very annoying and intrusive ads to upgrade even though I paid already for this app. Full Review

    Rip-off. Everything is hidden behind a requirement that you pay more money, and that's after you paid for the app already. Full Review

    Mohammed Maatouk Published date: October 15, 2017

    The tabs available are great, but with the app open, I literally can watch my battery rapidly die. I went from 100% to 70% in about 20 mins while trying to learn a new song. I expect better since you would expect to be able to leave the app open while playing for a reasonable time. I have streamed Netflix in HD and gotten better battery life. Full Review

    What? I pay at the app store, then I pay in the app. And now after downloading your other app the tabs app, I suddenly have to pay more? What's your deal? I payed you already for the same product, its in a different app sure but I have already bought tabs pro on this app. And to be honest the pro tabs are pretty annoying mostly, instead of giving me straight up sound of what is being played On screen, the background filler/rhythm guitar is on. How can I learn if the sound I'm trying to learn is masked by another guitar??? Perhaps it can be shut off but I've yet to find it. But why would it be a default setting anyway. Really need to get your act together for such a big name app. Looking through the reviews I haven't found one, even the 5 stars, that don't have a complaint. Full Review

    Aaron Raufman Published date: October 16, 2017

    ultimate guitar does a good job of taking credit and profiting from other people's freely contributed submissions. the android app crashes on start up every time and then pesters me to upgrade (after already paying for the most "basic" version), and leave a review... so here you have it. I hate that I ever paid for this app, I hate that it's what I use to collect my songs to learn and more than anything I hate that I'm a chump for giving my money to these other chumps that perpetuate this whole process.

    Aaron Butkovich Published date: October 16, 2017

    The ads are a bit invasive for a casual user, who just looks up a quick tab to have a base to sound out the song. If you are heavily invested in tab reading, it's worth it, as the ads only appear each time you open the app. (obviously annoying for people who open/close frequently such as myself) Full Review

    Paid 2.99 or whatever it was to download the app to be asked to pay another £10 or so to actually use it. So no I won't be using it as if u had just put the price in the first place rather than a cheap price just to download basically an advert for your app. In my opinion just a con. Full Review
