Very user friendly and perfect for beginners 👍🏽
Awesome Kala

I learned how to play chords and song I got my first ukulele this up and I loved it this app was so much fun I want to learn more songs!
Meh

My thoughts (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️)
by Gamer033009 on 2020/08/22 16:21
Ok, I have a Kala uke and I love it! This app has helped me learn A C D E F G and more! I went from a girl with no experience to playing the whole song in minutes! But some songs aren’t the whole song they only let you learn half of it! But I still practice daily and now I’m playing let it be by the Beatles! I totally recommend this app for soon to be musicians 🎵!
Kala Ukelele
by MischiefManaged379 on 2020/08/20 13:32
As fun as it is I wish there was more explanation to it and more videos on how to. If this isn’t fixed YouTube would be so much better
Love app

Great app! Just one thing...
by v.slothasaur on 2020/08/15 23:32
This app is so great! I love all the songs and the subscription is for a good price! The tuner will not tune the note a though. All it ever says is too low without showing where the note is on the scale no matter how high pitched it is! Please fix it! I love this app so much
Highly recommended
by Muddyt0es on 2020/08/12 17:07
Great for remote learning highly recommend it as an educator and a mom of a one-year-old

It’s everything I’ve ever wanted in a Ukulele App. Great songs too!
Worth every penny!
by Nielgraphics on 2020/08/02 23:34
Always thought the Ukulele was too difficult until Kala changed my life.
Incredible I’m in love
by fondacash on 2020/08/01 15:50
Played guitar and it was hard. Ukulele is sooooo easy and the App a 4 year old could us. I’m in love! Best purchase of my life❤️
No baritone
by Oh Daddy Oh on 2020/07/29 18:31
Come on Kala, you sell baritone ukes, your app should support them...
Beneficial
by aloha1703 on 2020/07/27 02:07
This app is so great! I love it. It’s like a free lesson and I’m addicted to learning how to play my new Kala ukulele ❤️
Learning lesson

I love color ukulele it’s so good I hope you enjoy it too I dedicate this to Kala Ukulele thank you have fun learning the ukulele oh maybe you can even learn some other instruments and songs to
Fun time. It makes learning feel like a game.
by Guam lady on 2020/07/18 18:57
I like learning the ukulele now.
Great to learn with
by PapaPip on 2020/07/15 22:15
My wife and I purchased ukuleles during a recent trip to Hawaii. We found the Kala app shortly thereafter. After using the free version I decided to purchase the full access and I am thrilled with it. It is a great visual for building the chords for beginners. I love that I can change tempo as well. We have been streaming it via AirPlay to our TV at home and have daily “jam sessions” as we hone our craft. I’ve tried all of the beginner apps i could find and this one out shines them all! Not that we are a bit more adept, the app is still a daily fave for us.
How lovely to do this at home
by kathleenquarantine on 2020/07/14 22:11
Thank you so much 😃
THE BEST TUNER EVER!
by khan sobia on 2020/07/13 16:00
I got a ukulele a few years back and literally forgot about it! I just opened it and it wasn’t tuned at all! I went to the app that I usually went to and tuned it. It didn’t sound tuned at all! I looked for a new app and found this! This literally tuned so well and now my ukulele actually sounds like one! Now I can actually learn songs and play them without thinking I’m doing it wrong just because of the tuner I was using! 1000/10 recommended!
Easy to Learn
by hi_there6492 on 2020/07/12 21:02
I really like the app! It’s super easy to use and I like the format. I also appreciate that you don’t need to be able to read music to use it, although I can read music pretty fluently so this doesn’t really affect me. I’m sure it would be very helpful for someone who can’t read music. My only complaint is that many songs require a paid membership to access more than the first thirty seconds of the song. Other than that, this is a really great app that’s easy to use and had me playing the ukulele ok within a week.
The best!!!
by lil uker on 2020/07/12 03:28
OMG it fixed the ring in my uke so so so GOOD I THINK YOU SHOULD GET IT TO
Love my ukulele
by Van Hazlett on 2020/07/11 15:08
This app is great if you already have a musical background! I am loving this! Even those who dont know music can use the app. It is very simply and well put together for anyone wanting to learn.
My favorite

I love it
HORRIBLE
by gknelson311 on 2020/07/10 05:57
on my first try tuning my ukulele it was fine until i got to the A string and then app kept telling me my tuning was too low so i kept going until i tightened the string too much and the string broke. and no matter how much i tightened it the app still said my A was wayy too low. thanks, now i need a new string.
A+
by beginner👏👏👏👏 on 2020/07/09 11:59
Love the simplicity of melody, lyrics, and chords all at your fingertips...... thank you

Hi um I was playing on my IPAD and I went on Kala and I could not practice my fav song with out a subscription and the song was the lion sleeps tonight so yay I loved we’re it was freeeeeee! 😾😑😢😣😖😫😠😡🥺😩😫😖😣😔😟😕🙁☹️😞 and what the heck 😒I love this app but now I hate it I gave this app a 5 star review before it paid now 2 come on people 😔.
It’s a very good ukulele app but one question!
by Fin the shark on 2020/07/02 00:24
Hey! I have had this app now for a couple months and it’s pretty good. I would love if you guys could add the songs: stay with me by Sam smith, took me by suprise by Maria Mena, Hate me by Ellie Golding, and hard boy Frawley! It would make me use the app a LOT more and Mabye so I can learn the whole song put money into the app! Thank byeee
Love it!
by puppy jaws on 2020/07/01 23:30
My daughter learned the song in one day by heart. Definitely recommend.
Not enough songs
by Timmy2thic on 2020/07/01 17:37
I love how they teach you to play the ukulele, but sometimes when I have my heart set on learning a certain song it isn’t on the app and I have to look to YouTube.
Totally tubular!
by JJ-bird6 on 2020/06/30 03:26
I picked up my ukulele 3 days ago and I can already play a handful of songs. The app is simple and easy to use and absolutely effective when it comes to learning how to play as a newbie.
So awesome for me and my kids
by Shawtrain on 2020/06/29 19:35
4 kids and myself have all started using this app to learn and love it. So quick and easy to understand and be successful for all of us
Ok
by gball@23 on 2020/06/28 18:54
This app will definitely help you learn how to play the ukulele. But the tuning part of the app is terrible
Love it
by ncksjsjsjxidhbe on 2020/06/28 17:07
Super easy to follow with lots of popular songs. I love it❤️
Tuner is good, but annoying ads
by Nneemz on 2020/06/25 18:21
I bought a Kala ukulele, so I got this app for the tuner. It works fine, but I also have to do many unnecessary clicks to use it since numerous things pop up. If I don’t want to pay monthly just to play ukulele, stop repeatedly asking me!
Highly recommend it!
by Marchesebird on 2020/06/23 06:02
I got this app and my whole life changed! I can now play Over the rainbow and my family loves it! It is the best app for learning how to play the Ukulele! I highly recommend it!
Excellent teaching app
by Dorabsnot on 2020/06/21 22:21
So much fun learning uke this way!! I imagine you don’t even have to be a musician to catch on quickly. It’s like guitar hero with the reward of actually learning the instrument! My one request is the developers make the in app tuner more sensitive .
ISSUE WITH SUBSCRIPTION
by Phantrashhhhhh on 2020/06/20 12:34
app is great. but my biggest issue with it is that i cannot access songs even though i have a monthly subscription?? it tells me to get full access when i already do have full access, and when i try to “purchase” the full access it says i already have it, but i still CANT ACCESS THE SONGS?! my subscription is literally useless. i’m paying 5 dollars a month to get told to get full access. seriously?!

Really good chord lessons and tips. Could use a wider variety of songs but other than that it’s awesome. The tuner is really helpful

Baritone Ukulele?
by SapphiiMusic on 2020/05/19 22:24
Why offer the app in your baritone ukulele package if you don’t have the option for a baritone ukulele? Lol
Great
by noewon on 2020/05/19 13:33
Great except for the full access thing.
No Settings for Baritone?
by Cheeziegal on 2020/05/17 07:36
I received a Kala baritone uke as a gift and excitedly downloaded the companion app. I wanted a baritone because I thought it would be easier to play along with acoustic guitar. There are no app settings to alter the tunings for the Kala baritone uke so it constantly tells me I am out of tune. I know folks normally learn on a regular uke and baritone is for advanced players but dang, how about tools for folks that do it backwards? How do I play this thing?
I’m a beginner
by Betamh on 2020/05/16 03:52
I had never played a instrument in my life! My husband gave me an ukalele and I learned happy birthday in 4 hours practicing with this app.
So far I like it very very much.
by Forever howie on 2020/05/14 19:39
Love the way it prompts to play the chords as the song moves along. If it had a diagrammatic indication of what number finger goes where to compliment the voice and real demonstration that moves much too fast for me. I therefore have to keep replaying to try and catch it. Otherwise very user friendly
Living the dream
by therealmrs.myers on 2020/05/11 14:04
I am finally playing the ukulele. The app is great and I love my cute matte black color “chord”inated instrument!

Super and free
THIS APP IS AWESOME under one condition.....
by Drryder on 2020/05/01 20:43
Ok people, this is a GREAT app that teaches you ukulele. The instructors are great. And they make songs with super easy cords. There is just a tiny problem with it. THEY MAKE THE SONGS GO TO HIGH! You can’t even hit it!(well I can’t) but really other than that, this is a great app
Not for Baritone Ukuleles
by CamrynBE on 2020/04/30 15:46
Tuner works well, but nothing else the app offers works baritone ukuleles. I would love for there to be a setting that you can choose your ukulele type.
Good pp

E easy to use
AMAZING
by fskegsynen42737 on 2020/04/29 21:17
I love this app so much.I tried out quit a few apps for learning my instrument such as the popular app Yousician but it just wasn’t a good fit for me and the app kept glitching.This app is very stable and provides great videos for learning.
WOW😍🥰
by ElisaHanilton✨ on 2020/04/28 17:35
I have never picked up a ukulele before a week ago and now I can play almost any song on demand I am obsessad with how fast this tuned my ukuelele and got me strumming away in no time! highly recomend!👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
works well
by kaz@PDX on 2020/04/28 01:50
enjoy the app. tons of songs.
It won’t let me pick any songs to play
by nataly224 on 2020/04/27 21:44
Everytime i pick a song to learn to play it says it’s unable to load song. Am I doing something wrong?
Kala is an AWSOME
by The Gems & Lil Man's Momma on 2020/04/26 15:54
I would totally recommend this to all of my friends and family! You all will LOVE this app!❤️
Best!!!
by Pinseter on 2020/04/24 09:56
My friends gave me a $300 USD ukelele for Christmas, and up until now I have never gotten down to learn and play it. I was just browsing around for ukelele apps and found this. I was kind of glad that I found this app, because my ukelele is the same brand, Kala. I opened it and found many songs to play along to, although some were part of the “full access“ package. Since I didnt know ANY chords or notes, I watched the videos teaching the fingering on different chords, and once I knew enough, I played all these different songs, and already on the first day I could play the song Lavenders Blue. I found myself playing on Kala for three straight hours. Yes, I am not exaggerating!!! THREE HOURS STRAIGHT!! I already knew I had to buy the full access, and I am still so happy I found it. I have improved soo much using this app, so thank you to whoever started this app! There are many other reveiews for this app, and most say its bad and give it 1 star. I strongly disagree because it gave me a head start on ukelele and aftr 3 weeks Im still using it, and I am not planning on quitting. There are no problems for this app, nothing to improve! Its amazing 💯
This is awsomeeeeeee
by HI I LIKE GAMES A LOT on 2020/04/22 19:52
I just got the ukulele and I already know how to play my favorite song because of this app.
The App
by Mrs Smiddy3 on 2020/04/21 22:27
Pretty weird but it works to tune it but not really to learn
AWESOME
by Bob_123_bob on 2020/04/21 21:20
I intensely recommend this app for anyone who would like to play the ukulele.
Love it
by emilyboneal on 2020/04/19 20:48
Love this app
Pretty good. Could be great if...
by Surfduc on 2020/04/18 18:46
This is a pretty good app with lots of song selections and the ability to slow down the tempo when you are learning. What it is really lacking, and would make it excellent, is if it shows you the strum pattern along with the scroll bar while playing a song. For a beginner, that piece is essential. I am hoping the developers add that some time soon.
Good beginner training.
by Wolfgw8625 on 2020/04/14 23:52
Fun way to learn ukulele. Lots of songs to play.
Super fun!
by pcbecca on 2020/04/14 19:51

It makes you buy member ship
by wooooooooooow cool on 2020/04/10 20:42
So I was doing a song and it steps the song and started it over and would NOT let me play the song it does that with EVRY song in there playlist.
Unable to purchase full version
by JayGees7 on 2020/04/09 16:32
Based on first glance, I definitely want to make full use of app. However, when I try to purchase yearly subscription, I get an error saying the purchase failed. Can this be fixed so I can enjoy full use of the app?
Ukulele
by ChalaMarie on 2020/04/08 21:15
Love this app. Very encouraging and fun to use especially for those who are just learning!
Pretty Good, needs a tweak though
by Caitlinem on 2020/04/07 22:25
Yes, yes, I guess it’s great and all, but I don’t really like 29 second sample of the “member” songs, maybe 50 seconds would be better. Next, the G note, I’m playing it right! But it never says I’m playing it right, I’m disappointed in that.
Colleen Crowley
by overwhelmed Ophelia on 2020/04/07 16:17
I’ve played basic guitar long ago so perhaps it’s coming easier for me but I fond the app very intuitive and easy to use. With this app, I can learn on my own while sheltering I place and then consider the local class. I love the tuner! Tuning has always made playing a hassle in the past. This is hassle free!
Kinda good
by EmmJay910 on 2020/04/06 23:22
It’s OK because when I tune my c it says it’s too high but it’s actually as low as it can get
Great learning tool
by Gmawhisperingpines on 2020/04/05 20:49
This app makes learning fun as you practice real songs you know right away.
Paid for monthly...cant share in app purchases
by Kyraaagdjfchd on 2020/04/04 15:09
Love the app, purchased monthly for my son who is learning the ukulele with his extra time at home right now due to school closures during pandemic. My own fault for not reading further that you cannot share in app purchases even though its a family sharing capable app. Kinda doesn't make sense, so now its on my phone and pretty much useless to him on his iPad and I refuse to double purchase for him to access.
I'm having the time of my life!
by cyclops.eyesonly on 2020/04/02 13:35
Great app for learning how to play the ukulele! Everything you need to get started. Great videos and instructions for all my questions.
Haven’t even experienced it
by abcdefghzxr on 2020/03/30 15:32
It was starting off good, with the instructions and the how to, and I was just about to tune when it asked me to allow microphone. I kept trying to click allow but it wouldn’t let me. I don’t know if it’s the app or what, but I just restarted my iPad so it can’t be that. It looked really cool but I can’t even use it because it won’t let me tap allow. Is this normal for your product?
Good app!
by sierralee21boofit on 2020/03/29 19:35
Only issue is I started from the very beginning and it was kind of confusing at first. Better tutorials for strumming and how to play along with the app once you’ve picked a song would be helpful. Especially for someone who is not naturally rhythmic or musically talented. But once I understood all that it became easier and I’ve had a lot of fun.
Doesn’t give all songs
by zikslabbcjklsmsid on 2020/03/29 18:47
I had to pay for the ukulele, and still then it only lets you play a few songs unless you pay for a premium membership. I can’t understand why they make you pay even more just to learn how to play it. And they advertise it as if the songs are free to learn, and it was very disappointing when I learned I needed to pay more.
Worst tuner ever
by stopskreming 100 on 2020/03/26 22:14
My string broke because of it
Gets Stuck
by hellomaryam22 on 2020/03/26 02:23
Love the app but I’m having an issue. Every time I open the app after the first time, it does not move from the screen page where it says the name of the app. I have to delete and reinstall the app to use it every time. If anyone has a solution to this, i’d greatly appreciate it.
Love kala

by toberoonie <3 on 2020/03/17 16:53
Okay, I got a uke last Christmas. I guess I’m okay at it. This was actually A really easy tuner of it, however The songs are a little bit weird. So after that shenanigans I started teaching myself. And now I can strum up and down, play a b g so yeah, APPARENTLY ALOT OF PPL LIKE DIS DARN DILLY APP SO if you get it, I mean, it’s complicated, but I will get it :3
Best!!!

Since I didnt know ANY chords or notes, I watched the videos teaching the fingering on different chords, and once I knew enough, I played all these different songs, and already on the first day I could play the song Lavenders Blue. I found myself playing on Kala for three straight hours. Yes, I am not exaggerating!!! THREE HOURS STRAIGHT!! I already knew I had to buy the full access, and I am still so happy I found it. I have improved soo much using this app, so thank you to whoever started this app! There are many other reveiews for this app, and most say its bad and give it 1 star. I strongly disagree because it gave me a head start on ukelele and aftr 3 weeks Im still using it, and I am not planning on quitting. There are no problems for this app, nothing to improve! Its amazing 💯
Awesome App but 2.2.1 update seems broken
by Aland34444 on 2019/06/09 15:55
I had never played an instrument before when I bought my first Kala uke 5 months ago. This app really helped me to learn all the chords and, more importantly, to smooth out my chord changes. I stopped going to paid uke lessons and just used this app almost every day. It’s a great app if you’re starting out whether you have a Kala uke or any other brand of uke. The annual subscription is well worth every penny. I’ve even recommended the app to friends who already play guitar in a band and want to learn the uke. However, since installing the 2.2.1 update 3 days ago the app no longer opens on my iPhone. After uninstalling and reinstalling the app it will open the first time I use it, but if I close the app it won’t open again without completely removing and reinstalling. I reached out to support on their web site but have not had a response. Hopefully they have a resolution soon.
Awesome app
by liz del oro on 2018/04/07 00:35
Over a year ago I got a ukulele. I had some books that showed how to play the chords and I started playing. Then this past Christmas I received an iTunes gift card and I got this app and I love it. It has tons of songs from old traditional to the Beatles to Adele and more and they are always adding new songs. When you pick a song the app plays the melody and you play the chords and as the melody is playing it shows you what chord to play next. When the song is over it will say show results and it will rate how well you did on that song. For each song it also shows you a strumming technique to use for that song. I am having so much fun with this app. It also has a tuner so you can tune your ukulele first. If you are trying to learn the ukulele this app is for you.
Good - Could be Better
by Jwolfe10 on 2018/12/27 20:57
I received a Kala Ukelele Starter kit for Christmas. I like the app but think a few things could be improved. The first thing that comes to mind is the whole “starter kit” marketing. The kit is really just the ukele - anyone can download this App... I would give purchasers of this starter kit some sort of incentive like a free year to the full app. From what I understand you could buy any ukelele and use the kala app. The second thing is the lessons in the app. They are so so, as mentioned by others most are about 10 second clips with a zoomed in camera and no real tips. My final complain is that in the progress section of the app - none of my playing is saving. I’d love to see my progress and have played numerous songs to completion but it still says that I need to play songs to add data. On the positive I really like the interface of the strings to guide you as you play. The app has the right foundation just needs a couple tweaks and the kala starter kit needs more bang for its buck - doesn’t really separate itself from any other ukelele.
App needs better feedback
by 0kami_Rose on 2019/11/15 01:35
I was tuning my ukulele as instructed is stated for the first sting I started on it was too high therefore I turned it down and it was all good the string was tuned and I was happy. I went to the next one it stated it was too high and kept saying that no matter how low I went to tune it. Therefore I went to the a string it stated too low therefore I tuned it higher and higher next thing I know the sting breaks by this point I’m upset because now I’ve broken my ukulele and need to replace my string when all i wanted to do was tune it. Please fix this so it doesn’t happen too others. I understand that I should have knew it was getting to tight I had a feeling but decided to ignore due to positive ratings. I am deeply disappointed but not trying to be rude in any way or form because I know how notes, letters, texts, ect. Can and may be interpreted in other ways please state I know it’s my fault as well but please understand that I am a beginner whom is trying to play the ukulele and become good at the instrument I hope to at least get the hang of. Thank you for reading I know this takes time off from you but please fix this.
So fun to learn to play!
by windupmike on 2019/01/18 07:18
My wife and I are both loving the Kala app. We love that there are so many great songs to play. The scrolling bar makes it pretty intuitive. It really helps to play along with the app. I love how lots of songs can be played a step up or a step down. That can help when the chords are more difficult or when a song is sung outside of my vocal range. It’s fun to have the lyrics and sing along! I love the built in tuner and the song selection is pretty strong, too. I love when the app also shows a strumming pattern for a song. It would be cool if there were a place to suggest new songs. All in all, great app! I recommend it all of the time!!
Easy to Learn
by hi_there6492 on 2020/07/12 21:02
I really like the app! It’s super easy to use and I like the format. I also appreciate that you don’t need to be able to read music to use it, although I can read music pretty fluently so this doesn’t really affect me. I’m sure it would be very helpful for someone who can’t read music. My only complaint is that many songs require a paid membership to access more than the first thirty seconds of the song. Other than that, this is a really great app that’s easy to use and had me playing the ukulele ok within a week.
Great to learn with
by PapaPip on 2020/07/15 22:15
My wife and I purchased ukuleles during a recent trip to Hawaii. We found the Kala app shortly thereafter. After using the free version I decided to purchase the full access and I am thrilled with it. It is a great visual for building the chords for beginners. I love that I can change tempo as well. We have been streaming it via AirPlay to our TV at home and have daily “jam sessions” as we hone our craft. I’ve tried all of the beginner apps i could find and this one out shines them all! Not that we are a bit more adept, the app is still a daily fave for us.
Ukulele for the Classroom!
by toucan45 on 2020/03/02 00:14
I’m a teacher in the SF Bay Area and I went to a conference a few months back where Ukulenny presented a session on classroom Ukulele ensembles. Since then I’ve been curious how to integrate different types of ensembles into my teaching curriculum. Ukulenny’s presentation made the ukulele experience so accessible for me, and that ease of access transfers into the app so seamlessly. I’m excited to use this app as a tool for me to gain mastery on this instrument so that I can start sharing ukulele inspiration with my students!
Tuner problem and trouble pausing the song
by I❤️doggos_socute on 2019/06/04 18:16
This app is ok, Let’s start with the tuner. I had another app before this with a tuner, my ukulele was tuned and ready to go in SECONDS. However, with this app it took a while, the tuner had a hard time deciding whether the note was in tune or not. Now moving on to pausing the songs, sometimes when I was playing a song I would need to stop the song, but the song is hard to pause, I still don’t know how I do it. I just click random areas in hope the song would stop. Other than this the app lets you pick what tempo you want and helps you keep the tempo and every thing else it’s supposed to.
To hard for beginners on the gutair
by 🐯føxÿ🐯 on 2019/01/12 05:45
I like listening to the songs but one thing is that when you try to play one of the easiest songs on the game you still can do it! Can you add a easy thing because all ur songs are really hard to play you don’t even give us much time to do a song because the notes come by too fast! I’m rating this game 2 stars because I wanted to learn how to play the guitar but this game doesn’t really teach you anything but playing songs I’ll rate this game 5 stars if u can make it easier and make it so you have more time to get the correct note on playing the guitar! U did kinda good on this game I’m waiting for you to change and I’ll rate you 5 stars thank you! 😁
Best Uke App I’ve found yet!
by Anewbern on 2018/11/15 00:55
I can’t say enough great things about this ukulele app. It is an all in one ukulele app with quality functionality, quality songs and EVERYTHING you need to start playing songs immediately and correctly. I love the catalog of songs and the fact that they give you a strumming pattern is what sold me. Strumming pattern has been my greatest challenge in learning to play songs using tab or chords online. It’s amazing and I’ll be a subscriber for life!
Great learning tool
by Trini5501 on 2018/01/11 02:04
I have no experience with stringed instruments. In fact the only instrument I ever played was the Steel Pan in high school. Guitars etc. have always been intimidating. I got a Color Chord Ukulele for Christmas and can already play along with several songs. The videos, the finger placement guide, the strumming guide and the feedback are all incredibly easy to use and helpful tools. I like that I can search for songs with the notes that I feel most comfortable playing.
Better, faster
by Nutsonewfs on 2018/12/06 17:59
Okay, I just thought I couldn’t play the uke and was so sad. I have a great instrument and it was gathering dust. I’ve tried books and videos and while I learned some basics nothing helped me get past the hurdle to playing. In one week with the app, I’m already seeing good progress. It’s easy to play along with the ocarina and scrolling music and the videos seem to cover every question. The app makes learning fun and completely nonjudgmental.
Incredible app for teaching yourself to play
by ukecampergal on 2018/08/03 21:08
I have never played a stringed instrument...haven’t played any instrument, since high school and I am 61 now... This app has helped me learn the different strumming patterns, play chords...and many great tunes...of which some are current hits...So worth the money for the annual fee. Just wish you could also get this app on a Microsoft based notebook or tablet...several friends want to get this but don’t have an iOS based device...darn
Perfect app to keep you playing!
by Eve13021 on 2019/07/12 02:50
This is my first uke. I’ve tired guitar here and there years ago but need stuck with it because I didn’t have consistent instruction. The kala app keeps my uke and tune and there are plenty of songs to learn easily- with chord and strum overview. Additionally the ability to adjust the tempo of the play along song makes it fool proof. Finally I love that the app hears what I’m playing and scores how well I did- it keeps me motivated :)
Great for beginners!
by swmorrisus on 2018/01/20 22:15
I started learning to play the ukulele a couple of months ago and I have really enjoyed the app and have already signed up for the subscription. The app is easy to navigate, simple to follow and packed with information. The only thing I would like to see is the ability to scroll through the tab to get a feel for the songs before starting they streaming play along. Great job!
Nice app. First time learning to play an instrument.
by Karen the cat on 2018/04/18 23:52
I just bought my first ukulele (never played an instrument before) and had my heart set on a Kala. I was so happy to find they had this free app. It’s really sweet and has very helpful features. The tuner is great. I really like that it’s easy to use. I am already learning a song and am excited to see all the available ones they have. It is helping me to love my ukulele. 💙
Good... but... $$
by 24 RavenAMP on 2020/02/07 15:51
So, this app gives you a free trial. I didn’t know about this, and a few days after I downloaded the app, it said I had to buy a subscription to be able to play or even access certain songs. The ones it DID let me play, it only let me play for like 30 seconds. But the tuner is free, and that is good (the only good thing about this app). You should get it if you are willing to pay. Also, it doesn’t have every song, even with the premium. You can suggest songs, but the ones that aren’t originally played with a uke they don’t have.
Just OK
by Shawnjuanster on 2018/12/02 15:27
This app has a nice tuner and some fun songs to play. As someone new to playing music, I find their tutorial to be lacking. The tutorials for chords are links to videos that last 10 seconds without any verbal instruction. They need to offer more for people actually trying to learn music. Like suggested finger placement, as I find some of the chords difficult to place my fingers for. Also for the iPhone 10 and 10S they have not optimized their app for these phones screens. It is often cut off near the top of the screen.
Awesome and helpful!
by camdaman10366 on 2019/05/16 21:07
I love this app! I am learning ukulele and I am so lucky to have found this app! I like that there are so many good songs. There are a couple that I couldn’t find that I wanted but maybe they can be played on the uke. The price is super cheap too! $34 a yr is pretty darn good for this app. I do wish the videos were a bit longer and more detailed but this is a really cool app!
Perfect tuning app!
by Nicholas C7 on 2017/04/21 18:19
Functions absolutely perfectly, loads up instantly, and works right away! As a begginer it gives you a quick tutorial on how to use it and I&#39;ve never had tuning issues since. As long as you&#39;re not trying to tune in a loud room with a ton of other noises this thing is a breeze to use. 5 stars and highly reccomended!
Great idea but ...
by Nifery23 on 2019/04/21 14:00
So the app is awesome. However when I bought the ukulele I was under the impression I’d have access to a lot of the tutorials and videos for more than just a week. That’s what I thought I was paying for. I could’ve gotten a better quality ukulele otherwise. I spent the money because I thought the app would have more access. But overall it’s a good app for me as a beginner. I like the results after a song and that you can change the tempo.
Great for all ages
by Talkenhorn on 2019/05/20 03:32
I have had the app for a couple of weeks. You get a week free to try it before you have to pay for the subscription. I am an elementary music teacher and I think this will be a lot of fun for my 2nd year ukulele students. The subscription isn’t cheap but I believe I will be able to have a lot of application for this app.
Awesome app!!!
by Dashiell Ortiz on 2018/10/12 08:24
I’m a newbie, but I have a passion for music, I’ve been singing in church all my life, and well decided to try the ukulele. I’m telling you, it’s been a week and I’m pretty good at it already, this app has helped me a lot. I love all the songs they have to offer, you can slow down the tempo, and see the strumming pattern with video. What else to ask for? Love it love it love it.
Great
by Red Twig on 2017/12/23 02:28
If you can’t tell the difference between a g and c then you obviously don’t know how to use a tuner. You should make sure you actually know how to use something like this before you give it a bad review. I love the app. I got my makala in September of this year and I love it. It has great songs and has helped my progress on my playing. Thank you so much kala!!
Not really sure about this one 👎
by Yaler opal plouytfg on 2019/04/24 00:02
Im a new Ukulele player and I have been looking for some apps that could possibly help, but this one isn&#39;t one of my favorites. I mean, it only gives you about 4️⃣ days until the “trial” ends. Kala said it was a free app so it shouldn&#39;t have a trial, especially for beginners. That is why I made this 3 stars because of this reason. Thank you for reading i hope you can fix it. ( a really good app is GuitarTuna, its #36 or #35 in the music category 🤗)
Best app ever made?
by Petepepepe2838 on 2019/12/03 02:42
I have never reviewed an app but i have to say that this is probably the best built app i have ever seen. No other app makes learning the uke more fun, easy to learn. You can tell that the creators of the app really want to help people learn and not just make a quick buck. Great work and thank you so much for your dedication and effort on this app
Pretty good. Could be great if...
by Surfduc on 2020/04/18 18:46
This is a pretty good app with lots of song selections and the ability to slow down the tempo when you are learning. What it is really lacking, and would make it excellent, is if it shows you the strum pattern along with the scroll bar while playing a song. For a beginner, that piece is essential. I am hoping the developers add that some time soon.
Not sure why some are complaining, Fantastic app
by Smealek on 2019/09/28 02:57
I love the playfulness and general Hawaii/ukulele vibe the whole UI has. Also I have to mention the songs are definitely beginner friendly and it is super nice that the melody is thrown in—it definitely beats guessing it! Just wanted to say a big thank you to Kala and the developers behind the app!!! Much love ♥️♥️♥️
Love it! Although,
by -H.M on 2019/01/06 02:59
Kala ukulele is AMAZING the only thing I found wrong about it was I bought the full version though my iPhone but, even though I used the same account it won’t give me the full account on my iPad. Again great app I’ve learned so much on it and definitely recommend it to any new uke player out there!
It listens to me play
by Chrishaynga on 2019/07/27 23:17
I love this app it tells me when the chord is wrong, adjusts to my speed, and gives me feedback. It challenges me to learn. It has lots of songs. If I could add anything I would add an individual chord listening part so I could practice the chords giving me problems until the muscle memory was there.
Haven’t even experienced it
by abcdefghzxr on 2020/03/30 15:32
It was starting off good, with the instructions and the how to, and I was just about to tune when it asked me to allow microphone. I kept trying to click allow but it wouldn’t let me. I don’t know if it’s the app or what, but I just restarted my iPad so it can’t be that. It looked really cool but I can’t even use it because it won’t let me tap allow. Is this normal for your product?
Very nice for beginners
by ilovedogsverymuch on 2018/12/28 15:52
I’ve only been playing for 3 days and Kala has allowed me to try a bunch of songs. I can slow down the tempo to change cords easily. I can see whet cords are there before I play the song which allows me to learn new cords as well. It is very helpful and encourages me to get better at playing the ukulele. 😃

by overwhelmed Ophelia on 2020/04/07 16:17
I’ve played basic guitar long ago so perhaps it’s coming easier for me but I fond the app very intuitive and easy to use. With this app, I can learn on my own while sheltering I place and then consider the local class. I love the tuner! Tuning has always made playing a hassle in the past. This is hassle free!
It’s a very good ukulele app but one question!
by Fin the shark on 2020/07/02 00:24
Hey! I have had this app now for a couple months and it’s pretty good. I would love if you guys could add the songs: stay with me by Sam smith, took me by suprise by Maria Mena, Hate me by Ellie Golding, and hard boy Frawley! It would make me use the app a LOT more and Mabye so I can learn the whole song put money into the app! Thank byeee
Great for Visual Learners!
by Giftmomma on 2018/10/12 02:10
The color-coding system is a great tool for visual learners, including those with visual processing needs. The system makes it easy and you feel successful from the very first song! I went ahead and purchased the yearly rate on the app because I know myself, my husband, and my children will all enjoy it!
Love The App!
by Tiffany Elona on 2018/05/06 01:10
I am in love with this app! When I first got my Ukulele I was unsure how to use it, but this app helped me tune, play songs, and now it’s one of my favorite hobbies! I would recommend this app, especially to people who love music. It’s so much easier to use my Ukulele now, to tune, and to have fun! Now I can just enjoy the music 😊
Tuner works exceptionally well!
by World's Foremost Expert on 2017/10/22 06:38
This tuner is as good as or better than most commercial tuners sold in music shops. Be sure you&#39;re in a quiet environment with no wind hitting the microphone. Can&#39;t speak for the lessons, as I have not tried them, but I&#39;ll update this review if I have anything to say about them. Great job on the tuner, Kala!
Will not let me purchase
by Cjdjeufj92828 on 2018/10/17 12:51
My trial ended and I love the app, so I decided I would buy the expanded version. Unfortunately, every time I click to purchase the full version, it does nothing. I enter “yes” and it just takes me back to the original screen. I will have to look for other apps until this is fixed. Otherwise, I loved the features of this one and it was easy to learn songs!
Paid for monthly...cant share in app purchases
by Kyraaagdjfchd on 2020/04/04 15:09
Love the app, purchased monthly for my son who is learning the ukulele with his extra time at home right now due to school closures during pandemic. My own fault for not reading further that you cannot share in app purchases even though its a family sharing capable app. Kinda doesn&#39;t make sense, so now its on my phone and pretty much useless to him on his iPad and I refuse to double purchase for him to access.
Good app!
by sierralee21boofit on 2020/03/29 19:35
Only issue is I started from the very beginning and it was kind of confusing at first. Better tutorials for strumming and how to play along with the app once you’ve picked a song would be helpful. Especially for someone who is not naturally rhythmic or musically talented. But once I understood all that it became easier and I’ve had a lot of fun.
Loved it
by Uke95 on 2019/01/14 15:54
Most engaging way to learn the ukelele. It is really hard to know where to start on your own but this app makes it fun and easy to learn. It&#39;s features cover all the things you&#39;ll need to learn and it has everything from beginner songs to advanced.
So far I like it very very much.
by Forever howie on 2020/05/14 19:39
Love the way it prompts to play the chords as the song moves along. If it had a diagrammatic indication of what number finger goes where to compliment the voice and real demonstration that moves much too fast for me. I therefore have to keep replaying to try and catch it. Otherwise very user friendly
GREAT UKULELE APP!!
by A gurl who likes burritos on 2020/01/05 20:34
Kala is a great app! I got a ukulele for Christmas and found this app! It teaches you the basic notes and is very fun to learn with! The only thing is, is that it doesn’t have all songs. Like, it doesn’t have house of gold, and Something which is kind of disappointing. But over it’s awesome!👍🏻👌🏻
it’s good but...
by ur super ugly grandma on 2020/02/26 21:51
I love this app! i do! it’s just that i’m trying to click on the get full access button, but it has been on the loading dark screen for 30 minutes. i want to play full songs so badly. it’s not even working on anyone else in my family’s device. A little help?
Gets Stuck
by hellomaryam22 on 2020/03/26 02:23
Love the app but I’m having an issue. Every time I open the app after the first time, it does not move from the screen page where it says the name of the app. I have to delete and reinstall the app to use it every time. If anyone has a solution to this, i’d greatly appreciate it.
AMAZING
by ShelbyCrookes on 2019/01/17 00:51
I bought a ukelele YEARS ago but could never tune it. I tried several apps and none really worked. I have a Makala and this app is the BEST. It tuned my ukelele and taught me so easily and fast to the point where it blew my mind. I’m very excited to actually sit down and learn because of this app
Fits me perfect
by Tommy2be on 2018/01/09 00:17
This app was exactly what I needed. It just seems like you made it just for me. What I like most is hearing the tune as well. Too many times we have it all wrong. I am a guitar player learning to play the ukulele. I wish this was available when learning the guitar.

Content Rich App Makes Learning Fun!
by Max McGue on 2020/08/25 02:56

Love it!

I Love kala ukulele

I think it is the best ukulele app ever 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼🦄🦄
My thoughts (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️)
by Gamer033009 on 2020/08/22 16:21
Ok, I have a Kala uke and I love it! This app has helped me learn A C D E F G and more! I went from a girl with no experience to playing the whole song in minutes! But some songs aren’t the whole song they only let you learn half of it! But I still practice daily and now I’m playing let it be by the Beatles! I totally recommend this app for soon to be musicians 🎵!
Kala Ukelele

As fun as it is I wish there was more explanation to it and more videos on how to. If this isn’t fixed YouTube would be so much better
Love app

Great app! Just one thing...
by v.slothasaur on 2020/08/15 23:32
This app is so great! I love all the songs and the subscription is for a good price! The tuner will not tune the note a though. All it ever says is too low without showing where the note is on the scale no matter how high pitched it is! Please fix it! I love this app so much
Highly recommended
by Muddyt0es on 2020/08/12 17:07
Great for remote learning highly recommend it as an educator and a mom of a one-year-old
Excellent

It’s everything I’ve ever wanted in a Ukulele App. Great songs too!
Worth every penny!
by Nielgraphics on 2020/08/02 23:34
Always thought the Ukulele was too difficult until Kala changed my life.
Incredible I’m in love
by fondacash on 2020/08/01 15:50
Played guitar and it was hard. Ukulele is sooooo easy and the App a 4 year old could us. I’m in love! Best purchase of my life❤️
No baritone
by Oh Daddy Oh on 2020/07/29 18:31
Come on Kala, you sell baritone ukes, your app should support them...
Beneficial
by aloha1703 on 2020/07/27 02:07
This app is so great! I love it. It’s like a free lesson and I’m addicted to learning how to play my new Kala ukulele ❤️
Learning lesson

I love color ukulele it’s so good I hope you enjoy it too I dedicate this to Kala Ukulele thank you have fun learning the ukulele oh maybe you can even learn some other instruments and songs to
Fun time. It makes learning feel like a game.
by Guam lady on 2020/07/18 18:57
I like learning the ukulele now.
Great to learn with
by PapaPip on 2020/07/15 22:15
My wife and I purchased ukuleles during a recent trip to Hawaii. We found the Kala app shortly thereafter. After using the free version I decided to purchase the full access and I am thrilled with it. It is a great visual for building the chords for beginners. I love that I can change tempo as well. We have been streaming it via AirPlay to our TV at home and have daily “jam sessions” as we hone our craft. I’ve tried all of the beginner apps i could find and this one out shines them all! Not that we are a bit more adept, the app is still a daily fave for us.
How lovely to do this at home
by kathleenquarantine on 2020/07/14 22:11

THE BEST TUNER EVER!
by khan sobia on 2020/07/13 16:00
I got a ukulele a few years back and literally forgot about it! I just opened it and it wasn’t tuned at all! I went to the app that I usually went to and tuned it. It didn’t sound tuned at all! I looked for a new app and found this! This literally tuned so well and now my ukulele actually sounds like one! Now I can actually learn songs and play them without thinking I’m doing it wrong just because of the tuner I was using! 1000/10 recommended!
Easy to Learn
by hi_there6492 on 2020/07/12 21:02
I really like the app! It’s super easy to use and I like the format. I also appreciate that you don’t need to be able to read music to use it, although I can read music pretty fluently so this doesn’t really affect me. I’m sure it would be very helpful for someone who can’t read music. My only complaint is that many songs require a paid membership to access more than the first thirty seconds of the song. Other than that, this is a really great app that’s easy to use and had me playing the ukulele ok within a week.
The best!!!
by lil uker on 2020/07/12 03:28
OMG it fixed the ring in my uke so so so GOOD I THINK YOU SHOULD GET IT TO
Love my ukulele
by Van Hazlett on 2020/07/11 15:08
This app is great if you already have a musical background! I am loving this! Even those who dont know music can use the app. It is very simply and well put together for anyone wanting to learn.
My favorite

HORRIBLE
by gknelson311 on 2020/07/10 05:57
on my first try tuning my ukulele it was fine until i got to the A string and then app kept telling me my tuning was too low so i kept going until i tightened the string too much and the string broke. and no matter how much i tightened it the app still said my A was wayy too low. thanks, now i need a new string.
A+
by beginner👏👏👏👏 on 2020/07/09 11:59
Love the simplicity of melody, lyrics, and chords all at your fingertips...... thank you

It’s a very good ukulele app but one question!
by Fin the shark on 2020/07/02 00:24
Hey! I have had this app now for a couple months and it’s pretty good. I would love if you guys could add the songs: stay with me by Sam smith, took me by suprise by Maria Mena, Hate me by Ellie Golding, and hard boy Frawley! It would make me use the app a LOT more and Mabye so I can learn the whole song put money into the app! Thank byeee
Love it!
by puppy jaws on 2020/07/01 23:30
My daughter learned the song in one day by heart. Definitely recommend.
Not enough songs
by Timmy2thic on 2020/07/01 17:37
I love how they teach you to play the ukulele, but sometimes when I have my heart set on learning a certain song it isn’t on the app and I have to look to YouTube.
Totally tubular!
by JJ-bird6 on 2020/06/30 03:26
I picked up my ukulele 3 days ago and I can already play a handful of songs. The app is simple and easy to use and absolutely effective when it comes to learning how to play as a newbie.
So awesome for me and my kids
by Shawtrain on 2020/06/29 19:35
4 kids and myself have all started using this app to learn and love it. So quick and easy to understand and be successful for all of us
Ok
by gball@23 on 2020/06/28 18:54
This app will definitely help you learn how to play the ukulele. But the tuning part of the app is terrible
Love it
by ncksjsjsjxidhbe on 2020/06/28 17:07
Super easy to follow with lots of popular songs. I love it❤️
Tuner is good, but annoying ads
by Nneemz on 2020/06/25 18:21
I bought a Kala ukulele, so I got this app for the tuner. It works fine, but I also have to do many unnecessary clicks to use it since numerous things pop up. If I don’t want to pay monthly just to play ukulele, stop repeatedly asking me!
Highly recommend it!
by Marchesebird on 2020/06/23 06:02
I got this app and my whole life changed! I can now play Over the rainbow and my family loves it! It is the best app for learning how to play the Ukulele! I highly recommend it!
Excellent teaching app
by Dorabsnot on 2020/06/21 22:21
So much fun learning uke this way!! I imagine you don’t even have to be a musician to catch on quickly. It’s like guitar hero with the reward of actually learning the instrument! My one request is the developers make the in app tuner more sensitive .
ISSUE WITH SUBSCRIPTION
by Phantrashhhhhh on 2020/06/20 12:34
app is great. but my biggest issue with it is that i cannot access songs even though i have a monthly subscription?? it tells me to get full access when i already do have full access, and when i try to “purchase” the full access it says i already have it, but i still CANT ACCESS THE SONGS?! my subscription is literally useless. i’m paying 5 dollars a month to get told to get full access. seriously?!

Baritone Ukulele?
by SapphiiMusic on 2020/05/19 22:24
Why offer the app in your baritone ukulele package if you don’t have the option for a baritone ukulele? Lol
Great
by noewon on 2020/05/19 13:33
Great except for the full access thing.
No Settings for Baritone?
by Cheeziegal on 2020/05/17 07:36
I received a Kala baritone uke as a gift and excitedly downloaded the companion app. I wanted a baritone because I thought it would be easier to play along with acoustic guitar. There are no app settings to alter the tunings for the Kala baritone uke so it constantly tells me I am out of tune. I know folks normally learn on a regular uke and baritone is for advanced players but dang, how about tools for folks that do it backwards? How do I play this thing?
I’m a beginner
by Betamh on 2020/05/16 03:52
I had never played a instrument in my life! My husband gave me an ukalele and I learned happy birthday in 4 hours practicing with this app.
So far I like it very very much.
by Forever howie on 2020/05/14 19:39
Love the way it prompts to play the chords as the song moves along. If it had a diagrammatic indication of what number finger goes where to compliment the voice and real demonstration that moves much too fast for me. I therefore have to keep replaying to try and catch it. Otherwise very user friendly
Living the dream

THIS APP IS AWESOME under one condition.....
by Drryder on 2020/05/01 20:43
Ok people, this is a GREAT app that teaches you ukulele. The instructors are great. And they make songs with super easy cords. There is just a tiny problem with it. THEY MAKE THE SONGS GO TO HIGH! You can’t even hit it!(well I can’t) but really other than that, this is a great app
Not for Baritone Ukuleles
by CamrynBE on 2020/04/30 15:46
Tuner works well, but nothing else the app offers works baritone ukuleles. I would love for there to be a setting that you can choose your ukulele type.
Good pp

I love this app so much.I tried out quit a few apps for learning my instrument such as the popular app Yousician but it just wasn’t a good fit for me and the app kept glitching.This app is very stable and provides great videos for learning.
WOW😍🥰
by ElisaHanilton✨ on 2020/04/28 17:35
I have never picked up a ukulele before a week ago and now I can play almost any song on demand I am obsessad with how fast this tuned my ukuelele and got me strumming away in no time! highly recomend!👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
works well

It won’t let me pick any songs to play

Best!!!
by Pinseter on 2020/04/24 09:56
My friends gave me a $300 USD ukelele for Christmas, and up until now I have never gotten down to learn and play it. I was just browsing around for ukelele apps and found this. I was kind of glad that I found this app, because my ukelele is the same brand, Kala. I opened it and found many songs to play along to, although some were part of the “full access“ package. Since I didnt know ANY chords or notes, I watched the videos teaching the fingering on different chords, and once I knew enough, I played all these different songs, and already on the first day I could play the song Lavenders Blue. I found myself playing on Kala for three straight hours. Yes, I am not exaggerating!!! THREE HOURS STRAIGHT!! I already knew I had to buy the full access, and I am still so happy I found it. I have improved soo much using this app, so thank you to whoever started this app! There are many other reveiews for this app, and most say its bad and give it 1 star. I strongly disagree because it gave me a head start on ukelele and aftr 3 weeks Im still using it, and I am not planning on quitting. There are no problems for this app, nothing to improve! Its amazing 💯
This is awsomeeeeeee
by HI I LIKE GAMES A LOT on 2020/04/22 19:52

by emilyboneal on 2020/04/19 20:48
Love this app
Pretty good. Could be great if...
by Surfduc on 2020/04/18 18:46
This is a pretty good app with lots of song selections and the ability to slow down the tempo when you are learning. What it is really lacking, and would make it excellent, is if it shows you the strum pattern along with the scroll bar while playing a song. For a beginner, that piece is essential. I am hoping the developers add that some time soon.
Good beginner training.
by Wolfgw8625 on 2020/04/14 23:52
Fun way to learn ukulele. Lots of songs to play.

by JayGees7 on 2020/04/09 16:32
Based on first glance, I definitely want to make full use of app. However, when I try to purchase yearly subscription, I get an error saying the purchase failed. Can this be fixed so I can enjoy full use of the app?
Ukulele
by ChalaMarie on 2020/04/08 21:15

Pretty Good, needs a tweak though
by Caitlinem on 2020/04/07 22:25
Yes, yes, I guess it’s great and all, but I don’t really like 29 second sample of the “member” songs, maybe 50 seconds would be better. Next, the G note, I’m playing it right! But it never says I’m playing it right, I’m disappointed in that.
Colleen Crowley
by overwhelmed Ophelia on 2020/04/07 16:17
I’ve played basic guitar long ago so perhaps it’s coming easier for me but I fond the app very intuitive and easy to use. With this app, I can learn on my own while sheltering I place and then consider the local class. I love the tuner! Tuning has always made playing a hassle in the past. This is hassle free!
Kinda good
by EmmJay910 on 2020/04/06 23:22
It’s OK because when I tune my c it says it’s too high but it’s actually as low as it can get
Great learning tool
by Gmawhisperingpines on 2020/04/05 20:49
This app makes learning fun as you practice real songs you know right away.
Paid for monthly...cant share in app purchases
by Kyraaagdjfchd on 2020/04/04 15:09
Love the app, purchased monthly for my son who is learning the ukulele with his extra time at home right now due to school closures during pandemic. My own fault for not reading further that you cannot share in app purchases even though its a family sharing capable app. Kinda doesn&#39;t make sense, so now its on my phone and pretty much useless to him on his iPad and I refuse to double purchase for him to access.
I'm having the time of my life!
by cyclops.eyesonly on 2020/04/02 13:35
Great app for learning how to play the ukulele! Everything you need to get started. Great videos and instructions for all my questions.
Haven’t even experienced it
by abcdefghzxr on 2020/03/30 15:32
It was starting off good, with the instructions and the how to, and I was just about to tune when it asked me to allow microphone. I kept trying to click allow but it wouldn’t let me. I don’t know if it’s the app or what, but I just restarted my iPad so it can’t be that. It looked really cool but I can’t even use it because it won’t let me tap allow. Is this normal for your product?
Good app!
by sierralee21boofit on 2020/03/29 19:35
Only issue is I started from the very beginning and it was kind of confusing at first. Better tutorials for strumming and how to play along with the app once you’ve picked a song would be helpful. Especially for someone who is not naturally rhythmic or musically talented. But once I understood all that it became easier and I’ve had a lot of fun.
Doesn’t give all songs
by zikslabbcjklsmsid on 2020/03/29 18:47
I had to pay for the ukulele, and still then it only lets you play a few songs unless you pay for a premium membership. I can’t understand why they make you pay even more just to learn how to play it. And they advertise it as if the songs are free to learn, and it was very disappointing when I learned I needed to pay more.
Worst tuner ever

Gets Stuck
by hellomaryam22 on 2020/03/26 02:23
Love the app but I’m having an issue. Every time I open the app after the first time, it does not move from the screen page where it says the name of the app. I have to delete and reinstall the app to use it every time. If anyone has a solution to this, i’d greatly appreciate it.

Okay, I got a uke last Christmas. I guess I’m okay at it. This was actually A really easy tuner of it, however The songs are a little bit weird. So after that shenanigans I started teaching myself. And now I can strum up and down, play a b g so yeah, APPARENTLY ALOT OF PPL LIKE DIS DARN DILLY APP SO if you get it, I mean, it’s complicated, but I will get it :3

Awesome App but 2.2.1 update seems broken
by Aland34444 on 2019/06/09 15:55
I had never played an instrument before when I bought my first Kala uke 5 months ago. This app really helped me to learn all the chords and, more importantly, to smooth out my chord changes. I stopped going to paid uke lessons and just used this app almost every day. It’s a great app if you’re starting out whether you have a Kala uke or any other brand of uke. The annual subscription is well worth every penny. I’ve even recommended the app to friends who already play guitar in a band and want to learn the uke. However, since installing the 2.2.1 update 3 days ago the app no longer opens on my iPhone. After uninstalling and reinstalling the app it will open the first time I use it, but if I close the app it won’t open again without completely removing and reinstalling. I reached out to support on their web site but have not had a response. Hopefully they have a resolution soon.
Awesome app
by liz del oro on 2018/04/07 00:35
Over a year ago I got a ukulele. I had some books that showed how to play the chords and I started playing. Then this past Christmas I received an iTunes gift card and I got this app and I love it. It has tons of songs from old traditional to the Beatles to Adele and more and they are always adding new songs. When you pick a song the app plays the melody and you play the chords and as the melody is playing it shows you what chord to play next. When the song is over it will say show results and it will rate how well you did on that song. For each song it also shows you a strumming technique to use for that song. I am having so much fun with this app. It also has a tuner so you can tune your ukulele first. If you are trying to learn the ukulele this app is for you.
Good - Could be Better
by Jwolfe10 on 2018/12/27 20:57
I received a Kala Ukelele Starter kit for Christmas. I like the app but think a few things could be improved. The first thing that comes to mind is the whole “starter kit” marketing. The kit is really just the ukele - anyone can download this App... I would give purchasers of this starter kit some sort of incentive like a free year to the full app. From what I understand you could buy any ukelele and use the kala app. The second thing is the lessons in the app. They are so so, as mentioned by others most are about 10 second clips with a zoomed in camera and no real tips. My final complain is that in the progress section of the app - none of my playing is saving. I’d love to see my progress and have played numerous songs to completion but it still says that I need to play songs to add data. On the positive I really like the interface of the strings to guide you as you play. The app has the right foundation just needs a couple tweaks and the kala starter kit needs more bang for its buck - doesn’t really separate itself from any other ukelele.
App needs better feedback
by 0kami_Rose on 2019/11/15 01:35
I was tuning my ukulele as instructed is stated for the first sting I started on it was too high therefore I turned it down and it was all good the string was tuned and I was happy. I went to the next one it stated it was too high and kept saying that no matter how low I went to tune it. Therefore I went to the a string it stated too low therefore I tuned it higher and higher next thing I know the sting breaks by this point I’m upset because now I’ve broken my ukulele and need to replace my string when all i wanted to do was tune it. Please fix this so it doesn’t happen too others. I understand that I should have knew it was getting to tight I had a feeling but decided to ignore due to positive ratings. I am deeply disappointed but not trying to be rude in any way or form because I know how notes, letters, texts, ect. Can and may be interpreted in other ways please state I know it’s my fault as well but please understand that I am a beginner whom is trying to play the ukulele and become good at the instrument I hope to at least get the hang of. Thank you for reading I know this takes time off from you but please fix this.
So fun to learn to play!
by windupmike on 2019/01/18 07:18
My wife and I are both loving the Kala app. We love that there are so many great songs to play. The scrolling bar makes it pretty intuitive. It really helps to play along with the app. I love how lots of songs can be played a step up or a step down. That can help when the chords are more difficult or when a song is sung outside of my vocal range. It’s fun to have the lyrics and sing along! I love the built in tuner and the song selection is pretty strong, too. I love when the app also shows a strumming pattern for a song. It would be cool if there were a place to suggest new songs. All in all, great app! I recommend it all of the time!!
Easy to Learn
by hi_there6492 on 2020/07/12 21:02
I really like the app! It’s super easy to use and I like the format. I also appreciate that you don’t need to be able to read music to use it, although I can read music pretty fluently so this doesn’t really affect me. I’m sure it would be very helpful for someone who can’t read music. My only complaint is that many songs require a paid membership to access more than the first thirty seconds of the song. Other than that, this is a really great app that’s easy to use and had me playing the ukulele ok within a week.
Great to learn with
by PapaPip on 2020/07/15 22:15
My wife and I purchased ukuleles during a recent trip to Hawaii. We found the Kala app shortly thereafter. After using the free version I decided to purchase the full access and I am thrilled with it. It is a great visual for building the chords for beginners. I love that I can change tempo as well. We have been streaming it via AirPlay to our TV at home and have daily “jam sessions” as we hone our craft. I’ve tried all of the beginner apps i could find and this one out shines them all! Not that we are a bit more adept, the app is still a daily fave for us.
Ukulele for the Classroom!
by toucan45 on 2020/03/02 00:14
I’m a teacher in the SF Bay Area and I went to a conference a few months back where Ukulenny presented a session on classroom Ukulele ensembles. Since then I’ve been curious how to integrate different types of ensembles into my teaching curriculum. Ukulenny’s presentation made the ukulele experience so accessible for me, and that ease of access transfers into the app so seamlessly. I’m excited to use this app as a tool for me to gain mastery on this instrument so that I can start sharing ukulele inspiration with my students!
Tuner problem and trouble pausing the song
by I❤️doggos_socute on 2019/06/04 18:16
This app is ok, Let’s start with the tuner. I had another app before this with a tuner, my ukulele was tuned and ready to go in SECONDS. However, with this app it took a while, the tuner had a hard time deciding whether the note was in tune or not. Now moving on to pausing the songs, sometimes when I was playing a song I would need to stop the song, but the song is hard to pause, I still don’t know how I do it. I just click random areas in hope the song would stop. Other than this the app lets you pick what tempo you want and helps you keep the tempo and every thing else it’s supposed to.
To hard for beginners on the gutair
by 🐯føxÿ🐯 on 2019/01/12 05:45
I like listening to the songs but one thing is that when you try to play one of the easiest songs on the game you still can do it! Can you add a easy thing because all ur songs are really hard to play you don’t even give us much time to do a song because the notes come by too fast! I’m rating this game 2 stars because I wanted to learn how to play the guitar but this game doesn’t really teach you anything but playing songs I’ll rate this game 5 stars if u can make it easier and make it so you have more time to get the correct note on playing the guitar! U did kinda good on this game I’m waiting for you to change and I’ll rate you 5 stars thank you! 😁
Best Uke App I’ve found yet!
by Anewbern on 2018/11/15 00:55
I can’t say enough great things about this ukulele app. It is an all in one ukulele app with quality functionality, quality songs and EVERYTHING you need to start playing songs immediately and correctly. I love the catalog of songs and the fact that they give you a strumming pattern is what sold me. Strumming pattern has been my greatest challenge in learning to play songs using tab or chords online. It’s amazing and I’ll be a subscriber for life!
Great learning tool
by Trini5501 on 2018/01/11 02:04
I have no experience with stringed instruments. In fact the only instrument I ever played was the Steel Pan in high school. Guitars etc. have always been intimidating. I got a Color Chord Ukulele for Christmas and can already play along with several songs. The videos, the finger placement guide, the strumming guide and the feedback are all incredibly easy to use and helpful tools. I like that I can search for songs with the notes that I feel most comfortable playing.
Better, faster
by Nutsonewfs on 2018/12/06 17:59
Okay, I just thought I couldn’t play the uke and was so sad. I have a great instrument and it was gathering dust. I’ve tried books and videos and while I learned some basics nothing helped me get past the hurdle to playing. In one week with the app, I’m already seeing good progress. It’s easy to play along with the ocarina and scrolling music and the videos seem to cover every question. The app makes learning fun and completely nonjudgmental.
Incredible app for teaching yourself to play
by ukecampergal on 2018/08/03 21:08
I have never played a stringed instrument...haven’t played any instrument, since high school and I am 61 now... This app has helped me learn the different strumming patterns, play chords...and many great tunes...of which some are current hits...So worth the money for the annual fee. Just wish you could also get this app on a Microsoft based notebook or tablet...several friends want to get this but don’t have an iOS based device...darn
Perfect app to keep you playing!
by Eve13021 on 2019/07/12 02:50
This is my first uke. I’ve tired guitar here and there years ago but need stuck with it because I didn’t have consistent instruction. The kala app keeps my uke and tune and there are plenty of songs to learn easily- with chord and strum overview. Additionally the ability to adjust the tempo of the play along song makes it fool proof. Finally I love that the app hears what I’m playing and scores how well I did- it keeps me motivated :)
Great for beginners!
by swmorrisus on 2018/01/20 22:15
I started learning to play the ukulele a couple of months ago and I have really enjoyed the app and have already signed up for the subscription. The app is easy to navigate, simple to follow and packed with information. The only thing I would like to see is the ability to scroll through the tab to get a feel for the songs before starting they streaming play along. Great job!
Nice app. First time learning to play an instrument.
by Karen the cat on 2018/04/18 23:52
I just bought my first ukulele (never played an instrument before) and had my heart set on a Kala. I was so happy to find they had this free app. It’s really sweet and has very helpful features. The tuner is great. I really like that it’s easy to use. I am already learning a song and am excited to see all the available ones they have. It is helping me to love my ukulele. 💙
Good... but... $$
by 24 RavenAMP on 2020/02/07 15:51
So, this app gives you a free trial. I didn’t know about this, and a few days after I downloaded the app, it said I had to buy a subscription to be able to play or even access certain songs. The ones it DID let me play, it only let me play for like 30 seconds. But the tuner is free, and that is good (the only good thing about this app). You should get it if you are willing to pay. Also, it doesn’t have every song, even with the premium. You can suggest songs, but the ones that aren’t originally played with a uke they don’t have.
Just OK
by Shawnjuanster on 2018/12/02 15:27
This app has a nice tuner and some fun songs to play. As someone new to playing music, I find their tutorial to be lacking. The tutorials for chords are links to videos that last 10 seconds without any verbal instruction. They need to offer more for people actually trying to learn music. Like suggested finger placement, as I find some of the chords difficult to place my fingers for. Also for the iPhone 10 and 10S they have not optimized their app for these phones screens. It is often cut off near the top of the screen.
Awesome and helpful!
by camdaman10366 on 2019/05/16 21:07
I love this app! I am learning ukulele and I am so lucky to have found this app! I like that there are so many good songs. There are a couple that I couldn’t find that I wanted but maybe they can be played on the uke. The price is super cheap too! $34 a yr is pretty darn good for this app. I do wish the videos were a bit longer and more detailed but this is a really cool app!
Perfect tuning app!
by Nicholas C7 on 2017/04/21 18:19
Functions absolutely perfectly, loads up instantly, and works right away! As a begginer it gives you a quick tutorial on how to use it and I&#39;ve never had tuning issues since. As long as you&#39;re not trying to tune in a loud room with a ton of other noises this thing is a breeze to use. 5 stars and highly reccomended!
Great idea but ...
by Nifery23 on 2019/04/21 14:00
So the app is awesome. However when I bought the ukulele I was under the impression I’d have access to a lot of the tutorials and videos for more than just a week. That’s what I thought I was paying for. I could’ve gotten a better quality ukulele otherwise. I spent the money because I thought the app would have more access. But overall it’s a good app for me as a beginner. I like the results after a song and that you can change the tempo.
Great for all ages
by Talkenhorn on 2019/05/20 03:32
I have had the app for a couple of weeks. You get a week free to try it before you have to pay for the subscription. I am an elementary music teacher and I think this will be a lot of fun for my 2nd year ukulele students. The subscription isn’t cheap but I believe I will be able to have a lot of application for this app.
Awesome app!!!
by Dashiell Ortiz on 2018/10/12 08:24
I’m a newbie, but I have a passion for music, I’ve been singing in church all my life, and well decided to try the ukulele. I’m telling you, it’s been a week and I’m pretty good at it already, this app has helped me a lot. I love all the songs they have to offer, you can slow down the tempo, and see the strumming pattern with video. What else to ask for? Love it love it love it.
Great
by Red Twig on 2017/12/23 02:28
If you can’t tell the difference between a g and c then you obviously don’t know how to use a tuner. You should make sure you actually know how to use something like this before you give it a bad review. I love the app. I got my makala in September of this year and I love it. It has great songs and has helped my progress on my playing. Thank you so much kala!!
Not really sure about this one 👎
by Yaler opal plouytfg on 2019/04/24 00:02
Im a new Ukulele player and I have been looking for some apps that could possibly help, but this one isn&#39;t one of my favorites. I mean, it only gives you about 4️⃣ days until the “trial” ends. Kala said it was a free app so it shouldn&#39;t have a trial, especially for beginners. That is why I made this 3 stars because of this reason. Thank you for reading i hope you can fix it. ( a really good app is GuitarTuna, its #36 or #35 in the music category 🤗)
Best app ever made?
by Petepepepe2838 on 2019/12/03 02:42
I have never reviewed an app but i have to say that this is probably the best built app i have ever seen. No other app makes learning the uke more fun, easy to learn. You can tell that the creators of the app really want to help people learn and not just make a quick buck. Great work and thank you so much for your dedication and effort on this app
Pretty good. Could be great if...
by Surfduc on 2020/04/18 18:46
This is a pretty good app with lots of song selections and the ability to slow down the tempo when you are learning. What it is really lacking, and would make it excellent, is if it shows you the strum pattern along with the scroll bar while playing a song. For a beginner, that piece is essential. I am hoping the developers add that some time soon.
Not sure why some are complaining, Fantastic app
by Smealek on 2019/09/28 02:57
I love the playfulness and general Hawaii/ukulele vibe the whole UI has. Also I have to mention the songs are definitely beginner friendly and it is super nice that the melody is thrown in—it definitely beats guessing it! Just wanted to say a big thank you to Kala and the developers behind the app!!! Much love ♥️♥️♥️
Love it! Although,
by -H.M on 2019/01/06 02:59
Kala ukulele is AMAZING the only thing I found wrong about it was I bought the full version though my iPhone but, even though I used the same account it won’t give me the full account on my iPad. Again great app I’ve learned so much on it and definitely recommend it to any new uke player out there!
It listens to me play
by Chrishaynga on 2019/07/27 23:17
I love this app it tells me when the chord is wrong, adjusts to my speed, and gives me feedback. It challenges me to learn. It has lots of songs. If I could add anything I would add an individual chord listening part so I could practice the chords giving me problems until the muscle memory was there.
Haven’t even experienced it
by abcdefghzxr on 2020/03/30 15:32
It was starting off good, with the instructions and the how to, and I was just about to tune when it asked me to allow microphone. I kept trying to click allow but it wouldn’t let me. I don’t know if it’s the app or what, but I just restarted my iPad so it can’t be that. It looked really cool but I can’t even use it because it won’t let me tap allow. Is this normal for your product?
Very nice for beginners
by ilovedogsverymuch on 2018/12/28 15:52
I’ve only been playing for 3 days and Kala has allowed me to try a bunch of songs. I can slow down the tempo to change cords easily. I can see whet cords are there before I play the song which allows me to learn new cords as well. It is very helpful and encourages me to get better at playing the ukulele. 😃

by overwhelmed Ophelia on 2020/04/07 16:17
I’ve played basic guitar long ago so perhaps it’s coming easier for me but I fond the app very intuitive and easy to use. With this app, I can learn on my own while sheltering I place and then consider the local class. I love the tuner! Tuning has always made playing a hassle in the past. This is hassle free!
It’s a very good ukulele app but one question!
by Fin the shark on 2020/07/02 00:24
Hey! I have had this app now for a couple months and it’s pretty good. I would love if you guys could add the songs: stay with me by Sam smith, took me by suprise by Maria Mena, Hate me by Ellie Golding, and hard boy Frawley! It would make me use the app a LOT more and Mabye so I can learn the whole song put money into the app! Thank byeee
Great for Visual Learners!
by Giftmomma on 2018/10/12 02:10
The color-coding system is a great tool for visual learners, including those with visual processing needs. The system makes it easy and you feel successful from the very first song! I went ahead and purchased the yearly rate on the app because I know myself, my husband, and my children will all enjoy it!
Love The App!
by Tiffany Elona on 2018/05/06 01:10
I am in love with this app! When I first got my Ukulele I was unsure how to use it, but this app helped me tune, play songs, and now it’s one of my favorite hobbies! I would recommend this app, especially to people who love music. It’s so much easier to use my Ukulele now, to tune, and to have fun! Now I can just enjoy the music 😊
Tuner works exceptionally well!
by World's Foremost Expert on 2017/10/22 06:38
This tuner is as good as or better than most commercial tuners sold in music shops. Be sure you&#39;re in a quiet environment with no wind hitting the microphone. Can&#39;t speak for the lessons, as I have not tried them, but I&#39;ll update this review if I have anything to say about them. Great job on the tuner, Kala!
Will not let me purchase
by Cjdjeufj92828 on 2018/10/17 12:51
My trial ended and I love the app, so I decided I would buy the expanded version. Unfortunately, every time I click to purchase the full version, it does nothing. I enter “yes” and it just takes me back to the original screen. I will have to look for other apps until this is fixed. Otherwise, I loved the features of this one and it was easy to learn songs!
Paid for monthly...cant share in app purchases
by Kyraaagdjfchd on 2020/04/04 15:09
Love the app, purchased monthly for my son who is learning the ukulele with his extra time at home right now due to school closures during pandemic. My own fault for not reading further that you cannot share in app purchases even though its a family sharing capable app. Kinda doesn&#39;t make sense, so now its on my phone and pretty much useless to him on his iPad and I refuse to double purchase for him to access.
Good app!
by sierralee21boofit on 2020/03/29 19:35
Only issue is I started from the very beginning and it was kind of confusing at first. Better tutorials for strumming and how to play along with the app once you’ve picked a song would be helpful. Especially for someone who is not naturally rhythmic or musically talented. But once I understood all that it became easier and I’ve had a lot of fun.
Loved it
by Uke95 on 2019/01/14 15:54
Most engaging way to learn the ukelele. It is really hard to know where to start on your own but this app makes it fun and easy to learn. It&#39;s features cover all the things you&#39;ll need to learn and it has everything from beginner songs to advanced.
So far I like it very very much.
by Forever howie on 2020/05/14 19:39
Love the way it prompts to play the chords as the song moves along. If it had a diagrammatic indication of what number finger goes where to compliment the voice and real demonstration that moves much too fast for me. I therefore have to keep replaying to try and catch it. Otherwise very user friendly
GREAT UKULELE APP!!
by A gurl who likes burritos on 2020/01/05 20:34
Kala is a great app! I got a ukulele for Christmas and found this app! It teaches you the basic notes and is very fun to learn with! The only thing is, is that it doesn’t have all songs. Like, it doesn’t have house of gold, and Something which is kind of disappointing. But over it’s awesome!👍🏻👌🏻
it’s good but...
by ur super ugly grandma on 2020/02/26 21:51
I love this app! i do! it’s just that i’m trying to click on the get full access button, but it has been on the loading dark screen for 30 minutes. i want to play full songs so badly. it’s not even working on anyone else in my family’s device. A little help?
Gets Stuck
by hellomaryam22 on 2020/03/26 02:23
Love the app but I’m having an issue. Every time I open the app after the first time, it does not move from the screen page where it says the name of the app. I have to delete and reinstall the app to use it every time. If anyone has a solution to this, i’d greatly appreciate it.
AMAZING
by ShelbyCrookes on 2019/01/17 00:51
I bought a ukelele YEARS ago but could never tune it. I tried several apps and none really worked. I have a Makala and this app is the BEST. It tuned my ukelele and taught me so easily and fast to the point where it blew my mind. I’m very excited to actually sit down and learn because of this app
Fits me perfect
by Tommy2be on 2018/01/09 00:17
This app was exactly what I needed. It just seems like you made it just for me. What I like most is hearing the tune as well. Too many times we have it all wrong. I am a guitar player learning to play the ukulele. I wish this was available when learning the guitar.
