Free version without subscription is USELESS, subscription is highway robbery
by Zac9876 on 2019/06/12 09:15
TL/DR synopsis: Pass on this one for now and save yourself the headache. So I saw this and thought it might be helpful in putting music ideas to paper (or in this case, electrons). I had hopes for this app, but wanted to try it out before committing to any kind of subscription because $10/month is a lot to pay to save paper when I can print tab/staff lines for free and play them on my guiar instead of my iPad. But the free version is practically unusable. I’m unable to change time signatures and I get continuous pop up ads that interrupt my workflow. I don’t mind supporting the dev through ads IF I GET A FUNCTIONING PRODUCT. I get the developers have to earn a return on their investment of time and resources. But this app goes overboard and the bombardment of ads for something so useless is really just a pressure tactic to get you to commit to the subscription. I chose to delete the app instead. If they go to a more functional product with better ad spacing I might reinstall. If the monthly subscription was better priced I also might reconsider. But as it stands, this is an overpriced product at best, and the epitome of frustration due to constant interruptions at worst.
Um...what??
by camadams0925 on 2019/04/30 01:42
No tutorial on how to write tabs/music on here whatsoever. Nothing online either. Gooooood luck
Every touch brings a pop-up Ad!
by Wdav on 2019/02/23 06:10
If ALL you want to do is look at an ad for the $10/month subscription then you will love this app. BUT, if you are like me and CONTINUALLY (like every touch of the screen) get a subscription ad before you can do anything, avoid this app like the plague!! I never could tell what the app could even do other than pop-up ads for the subscription. $10/month just to see if this app has ANY redeeming features at all... nah, not for me! I have no intention of supporting or subsidizing any developer that greedy. I’ll put this app in the trash and hope the trash doesn’t spit it back at me. I’m just glad I didn’t purchase one of their pay for up front apps before I discovered the type of developers... you get the idea...
Cool app

IN MY OPINION THIS APP IS NOTHING BUT AN ATTEMPT TO STEAL YOUR MONEY. DEVELOPER STATES THAT IT IS EASY TO LEARN, BUT (AT THE TIME OF THIS POST) PROVIDES NO DOCUMENTATION, NO VALID HELP LINKS, NOTHING AT ALL TO HELP YOU. YOU WILL NOTICE THERE ARE SEVERAL 5 STAR RATINGS FOR THIS APP, THEY’RE NOT BECAUSE THE APP IS GREAT; PEOPLE ARE FORCED TO RATE THE APP 5 STARS IN ORDER TO USE CERTAIN FEATURES, THIS IS IN EFFECT EVEN AFTER YOU HAVE SPENT MONEY FOR THE ‘PACKAGE’. APP IS ADVERTISED AS GUITAR NOTATION APPLICATION, BUT BEFORE YOU CAN BUILD AND USE ANY CHORDS YOU HAVE TO PAY THE IN-APP-PURCHASE PRICE OF $9.99 FOR THE DOWNLOAD PACKAGE. THE APP IS BUGGY AS HELL AND THE HELP LINK GOES TO DEV’S WEBSITE WHERE THE ONLY LINK IS TO THE APP STORE OR THE ANDROID STORE - NO HELP. THIS IS A recommended No BUY from me!

What a waste of iPad memory. To purely test drive the app, you can't. Everything I attempted referred me to shelling out $9.99. I'll be removing from this iPad immediately. What a downright dumb tactic.

Great to keep notes in that you don’t want in different journals, or loose leaf paper you use when you forget your journal and then your notes are just all over the place. Finally with this app I can have them all in one place !

This is great for beginners
by Country mama 555 on 2018/07/07 23:43
I had mentally kept a composition for my guitar in my head but when I knew that I could soon forget it, I decided to find an app...And I tried quite a few but this was the easiest to work with. I didn’t have to think twice about how to place a note because it felt so natural! I would totally recommend this to anyone who wants to compose their own songs for the guitar

Good for learning guitar, helps beginners and more challenged players.
Mostly good app. Couple bugs and suggestions
by Opuscape on 2018/03/25 00:31
Bought the full app. This is the only iPad app I’ve found to write tabs with chords and notes. The interface is mostly good with a couple bugs and some desired features. First the bugs. Notice the audio playback only works through Bluetooth not speakers on iPad w/latest OS. Also noticed you cannot create a D chord in this app - it forces a barre chord across GBE strings. Now some feature requests. Please add ability to denote hammers and pull-always like “8 p5” or “5 h8”. Please add ability to show finger numbers on chord diagrams above the tab. Please add ability to place text notes above/below or right/left of tab grids to describe techniques. If bugs were fixed and features added this is a 5-star + app!!
What a joke
by Bryan J Zimmerman on 2017/12/26 23:44
I feel horrible for anyone who actually paid for this app! No tutorials and load of ads. I can’t even figure out how to put a note on the staff!! Don’t waste your time.

Don't download. It doesn't do what it says and I just wasted $10 trying to compose a bass tab.
Just want to change background

It's ok
You're on your own
by nonoyobizness on 2017/06/27 03:55
No documentation, no tutorials, you're on your own figuring this out. Not sure if tab is the only option here, I was looking for something that did both. It would be great if you could easily duplicate chords, and if the fretboard diagrams could be automatically converted to tab. Needs a lot of work. The developer website also has no info on how the various features work.
Forced to rate app
by Dr.MikeM on 2017/06/25 23:10
I purchased the full version of this app ($9.99) and when I went in to change the background it says I have to rate the app 5 stars in order to make changes. Are you kidding me? A wasted $10 because I won't be forced to rate any app after spending my hard earned dollars on it. Don't bother, there are better apps out there with a sense of honesty and integrity. Apple needs to address this issue.
Need to add Ukulele instaments
by Uke till I die! on 2017/03/08 15:01
This app is good on my iPad, however I play tenor and baritone ukulele. This would be a 5 star app if you added those instruments. There are many uke players out there and you are missing a huge market.
Not very easy to navigate
by PapaDave909 on 2017/02/08 01:06
Needs a lot of work before it gets five stars from me.
Terrible
by lassalinas on 2017/02/03 14:49
App crashes when you actually try to compose anything. Every little detail is an extra package that they want $10 for. Why would I pay $10 for anything on this app when they give you no opportunity to see its use-ability? They won't even let you change the background color without rating them 5 stars first - Haha! Right! Useless app
Good little app dare I say.

Free version without subscription is USELESS, subscription is highway robbery
by Zac9876 on 2019/06/12 09:15
TL/DR synopsis: Pass on this one for now and save yourself the headache. So I saw this and thought it might be helpful in putting music ideas to paper (or in this case, electrons). I had hopes for this app, but wanted to try it out before committing to any kind of subscription because $10/month is a lot to pay to save paper when I can print tab/staff lines for free and play them on my guiar instead of my iPad. But the free version is practically unusable. I’m unable to change time signatures and I get continuous pop up ads that interrupt my workflow. I don’t mind supporting the dev through ads IF I GET A FUNCTIONING PRODUCT. I get the developers have to earn a return on their investment of time and resources. But this app goes overboard and the bombardment of ads for something so useless is really just a pressure tactic to get you to commit to the subscription. I chose to delete the app instead. If they go to a more functional product with better ad spacing I might reinstall. If the monthly subscription was better priced I also might reconsider. But as it stands, this is an overpriced product at best, and the epitome of frustration due to constant interruptions at worst.
Um...what??

If ALL you want to do is look at an ad for the $10/month subscription then you will love this app. BUT, if you are like me and CONTINUALLY (like every touch of the screen) get a subscription ad before you can do anything, avoid this app like the plague!! I never could tell what the app could even do other than pop-up ads for the subscription. $10/month just to see if this app has ANY redeeming features at all... nah, not for me! I have no intention of supporting or subsidizing any developer that greedy. I’ll put this app in the trash and hope the trash doesn’t spit it back at me. I’m just glad I didn’t purchase one of their pay for up front apps before I discovered the type of developers... you get the idea...

Mostly good app. Couple bugs and suggestions
by Opuscape on 2018/03/25 00:31
Bought the full app. This is the only iPad app I’ve found to write tabs with chords and notes. The interface is mostly good with a couple bugs and some desired features. First the bugs. Notice the audio playback only works through Bluetooth not speakers on iPad w/latest OS. Also noticed you cannot create a D chord in this app - it forces a barre chord across GBE strings. Now some feature requests. Please add ability to denote hammers and pull-always like “8 p5” or “5 h8”. Please add ability to show finger numbers on chord diagrams above the tab. Please add ability to place text notes above/below or right/left of tab grids to describe techniques. If bugs were fixed and features added this is a 5-star + app!!
What a joke

No documentation, no tutorials, you're on your own figuring this out. Not sure if tab is the only option here, I was looking for something that did both. It would be great if you could easily duplicate chords, and if the fretboard diagrams could be automatically converted to tab. Needs a lot of work. The developer website also has no info on how the various features work.

by Dr.MikeM on 2017/06/25 23:10
I purchased the full version of this app ($9.99) and when I went in to change the background it says I have to rate the app 5 stars in order to make changes. Are you kidding me? A wasted $10 because I won't be forced to rate any app after spending my hard earned dollars on it. Don't bother, there are better apps out there with a sense of honesty and integrity. Apple needs to address this issue.
Need to add Ukulele instaments
by Uke till I die! on 2017/03/08 15:01
This app is good on my iPad, however I play tenor and baritone ukulele. This would be a 5 star app if you added those instruments. There are many uke players out there and you are missing a huge market.
