    I really find this app useful to learn new songs and remember forgotten parts of older songs I once knew. Unfortunately, I have been trying to save enough money to afford the full version for months and I cannot seem to get ahead. I am sure full would be worth it, I just can't make ends meet. Maybe someday soon. I highly recommend downloading this app if you need help learning you songs in whichever style you play. So many versions of each song to fit your desire and skill level from tabs to chords and intro bridge solos. Give it a try! I promise you will not be let down. I have the free version and its perfect for me. Press the download button, grab your guitar or bass, and warm your fingers up because its about to go down with this app!! Enjoy!!! Full Review

    The widely-understood, defacto standard across the app industry is that if you pay money, you don't get ads. Not the case here. Every time you open the app, you get a pop-up trying to get you to "upgrade to the pro version". If you don't turn off notifications, you'll get spammed with those too, trying to leach more money from you. Completely unacceptable and a scammy business practice. Full Review

    Having zero ability to stop the stupid badge notification numbers from showing up and then going through the entire app to find where the notifications are actually coming from and coming up dry is absolutely infuriating. I don't want to see an 8 or a 9 on my screen at all times and be unable to remove it permanently. This stupid flaw was enough for me to uninstall. Wish I didn't pay for it in the first place.

    The developer of this app wants to leech every penny from us paid users for things we explicitly don't need (it should have been obvious for canceling the offer numerous times)! Worst purchase on the Play Store I had. Avoid it like the plague! Full Review

    I love this app! Definitely worth paying to unlock tab pro's they make it so much easier to learn those tricky licks and riffs. You can slow them down to practise them and then speed them back up to 100% Full Review

    Really not great. Expected quality after paying for it, but has some usability issues. Pops up ads, even after paying for the full version, which is unacceptable. Thought buying the app would let me escape the awful pop ups on the website, but that's apparently not the case. Full Review

    I only downloaded it because I was fed up of ultimate guitar deliberately reducing mobile UX to push this app. But even though after paying for it, it still spams you with ads and prompts you to upgrade. This is especially shocking from a company that makes money from user generated content. Appalling business model. Change it now. Full Review

    Its okay. Bit slow and when I open it on my phone it just shows a black and white screen so it looks frozen. Ads in a paid app= no. Especially when its slow and freezes. Its good when it works though. I preferred using the website. Full Review

    Constantly pushes a $12 in-app purchase for ad removal. There shouldn't be ads in a paid app. I understand the in-app purchase for extra features, but not for ads. The ad is incredibly annoying too, as there is a persistent red banner across the top of every tab sheet, and frequent pop-ups advertising a timed "discounted" upgrade, even though the discount has stayed the same for three days. This app also takes around 8 seconds to open up, which is unacceptable. This app obviously doesn't support multitasking, which is baffling. The fit-to-screen feature and favouriting songs, but in no way outweighs the cons. I wouldn't have downloaded this app if the Ultimate Guitar website wasn't annoying to use on mobile devices, which is intentional. I wish I refunded this app when I had the chance. Full Review

    It does what it's supposed to but man does it annoy me. Every sing time you open it - every single time - it announces some huge sale they're having with their app and how you won't see it again at that price. Then the next time you open it, it's on another huge sale that's like the same as last time. It also gives little numbered notifications that don't go away no matter how many times you check what it's notifying you about. Don't get me wrong, it does what it's supposed to and I use it a ton for songs. But for an app I payed for, I'm tired of the ads and constant need for attention it has. Full Review

    Once you pay money for the app, it wants you to pay $35 for "full access" to its tools it advertises to have (tuner/ chord library). It proceeds to bait you with "excellent price drops" to get you to spend your money to get access to features you should have had initially. Full Review

    Wiehan Van Der Merwe Published date: July 19, 2017

    This app is about 4-5 times more expensive than your average marketplace app. It is not the price that bothers me, but that fact that you pay that price but can't even switch off incredibly pathetically annoying NOTIFICATIONS. TERRIBLE. WHY WOULD I WANT NOTIFICATIONS ABOUT NEW TABS. EVERY SINLGE APP THESE DAYS WANTTO NOTIFY YOU WITH SOMETHING UNNECESSARY. IT IS DISTURBING ANF UNHELPFUL. Allow me to switch off every single notification please. Full Review

    Every genre and almost every song is on here. There are varying difficulties to suit everyone's ability. The app is updated regularly with improvements. I love it. It works for me perfectly. The bigger the screen you've got the better it is though. Full Review

    Absolute rip. Make you pay and then to access thr rest of the features you have to throw another 14$ on top. Just use the internet instead. Not many fans of this in the music biz Full Review

    Leave the ads aside,its part of you having patience for the app and "to learn guitar". The app and the knowledge you can get from this app is Supercool. This is your 24/7(365) teacher. You'll never stop learning with this killer app. Full Review

    This is definitely a great app to start learning how to play guitar. I started out knowing nothing and after reviewing the lessons a couple of times, I can know read tabs and play moderate songs! Full Review

    Rikishae Published date: July 20, 2017

    Let me get this straight. You make us buy the app. Just to pay more money to use its features. It's already an expensive app but to force us to pay even more to learn is just mean.....knowledge should be free guys come on. Full Review

    It is a good app with countless songs. I hate the many adds and push notifications. You can turn these OFF but keep coming. Paid version. Full Review

    Constantly harasses you to upgrade after you've already bought it, which just slows you down when you need to pull up a tab. Cluttered UI, and ads on a paid app... Full Review

    Will Stressman Published date: July 18, 2017

    I like the app a lot, it's helped me to learn some of my favorites by Pink Floyd and Led Zepplin, however I do wish it had some tabs for songs that focused specifically on 12 string. Otherwise the the app is great! Full Review

    They charge money upfront, but still fill the app with ads, and have the next level in-app purchase at like $20 to remove ads and get full functionality. Full Review

    This is such a handy way to practice guitar wherever you're at. Probably won't find every song you're looking for all of the time, but they've got many more that you didn't even know you were looking for on weekly suggestions. Great aid for teaching yourself through chords or tabs. 👍 Full Review

    Great app.. I can learn by ear but when I'm stuck on something it's great to fill in the blanks.. not sure what people complain about, dont use it then, be greatful that some people put in the time to make tabs for YOU... Cheaper add-ons would be better, that's all.. Full Review
