    I've found every song I've looked up so far. The transposing tool is very useful, helps to match voice or chord preferences. I spent a few extra bucks for upgrade. No ads. No problems. Get this app if you like learning/playing in your own style. Or get accurate tabs if you don't wanna "fake it." no tabs for all songs but most. Full Review

    I don't know what happened I this last update, but all of my saved music is gone. Save new songs, close and reopen the app, and they're gone too. Please get this fixed. I have been using this app for a long time UPDATE: Found that if I login using fb my music isn't there, but if I sign in using my name and password it's all there. And thank you for a quick response Full Review

    Nightmare of an app. Bought the paid version but still get endless notifications offering discounts etc. Really starting to grate on me. In reply to the reply below: Yes I understand the basic version includes everything it says it does, but I expect, after having paid for the app, that the ads would be removed. Is there any way to remove the ads after having paid??? My advice to anyone reading this is not to bother paying anything towards the app because you still get bombarded with ads. Full Review

    Helpful app but too much. I would like a refund but am not given the option to refund an hour after purchase? I upgraded to get the guitar tools etc. but the individual prices of those apps are cheaper than the cost of upgrade. If someone from ultimate guitar could contact me about a refund, that would be great. Thanks. ***UPDATE*** Almost a year and a half later now. I was never contacted by anyone from this company about refunding my money. Full Review

    This app has significantly improved as time goes on, and it's great. Huge song availability. The scrolling option is awesome, I love the ability to make playlists and sort songs better. And the tuner is great! I tune my guitar D to D.. So it's great to be able to easily tune up without mentally compensating for the difference. Keep doing what you're doing. Ultimate Guitar is basically how I taught myself acoustic guitar in highschool...lots of great information and even chord charts and links to other awesome resources. Although. Can do without the assault of ads asking for ratings and purchases that temporarily freeze up the app. Full Review

    Just bought and installed, and couldn't use it much as their 'new year special upgrade' offer pop ups everywhere. I couldn't even use the basic features like the tuner, and you can't even close the upgrade popup. What if I just want to try the basic features of the app before deciding to go for any upgrade. It's like forcing the upgrade on me. Irritated, didn't expected this. Full Review

    If you're going to beg me to review your app so many times then fine here it is. All I wanted to do was tune my guitar, so I go to the tuner and I get a request to rate the app, no thanks just wanna tune my guitar. Then I see an ad to upgrade that I can't close (seriously??) So I hit the back button, another request for feedback no thanks so I go the tuner and see yet another unclosable ad to upgrade. Are you seriously expecting good reviews by hiding critical functionality behind a paywall? Uninstalling this garbage. Full Review

    it works perfectly if all you want to do is look up songs. If you by any chance want to play the song, edit it, use interactive tabs, or basically anything else the app claims to offer, you have to pay more money. But wait, once you bought the first in app purchase to get more songs, it wants even more money to unlock the rest of the app. This application is little more then a scam to make a quick buck Full Review

    I have been teaching myself how to play guitar for about seven months now and of all the apps I've used, this one has been the most helpful, in depth, and well rounded. If you wait a while, the premium upgrade varies in price all the time. I ended up paying four dollars to upgrade and it was totally worth it. 10/10 Full Review

    I've paid for ultimate guitar twice now (once on iOS, now on Android) and it used to be a decent app. I installed it costing me about £2.50 (not cheap for an app) thinking I'd get a decent experience. Upon firing up the app (which I paid for), I am immediately asked to upgrade (???) for £10?? I can't even use the guitar tuner. Utter scam - wish I could be bothered to apply for a refund but £2.50 isn't worth it. Avoid like the plague, take my advice Full Review

    Absolutely the most aggrevating Guitar tab app. I've purchased the full version 3 times on different devices, and any time I update my phone, they require me to buy a new version... and they constantly popup ads to purchase additional features. So annoying Full Review

    Bought for $2.99, gotta pay $9.99 MORE if you want to actually be able to do anything. "Upgrade" ad covers screen, can't dismiss it, clicking back on phone takes you out of the tab, ad comes back every tab you click on, every time. Cash grab, officially turned me off to your name and product. Full Review

    Over the past few years I have literally made at least 2 in-app purchases that were advertised as both life-long and ad free versions of the app. however I somehow consistently get pop-up ads.. It's really frustrating as someone who uses this app as a tool for work, as it is a great resource. But, for how much I have spent on this app, I think it should work much better. Full Review

    Fun app! Super user friendly. Tons of tools at your disposal. Love the add-ons (link to videos, and tab tracker) they keep it fresh with seasonal songs and new content. Super stoked about the ability to create my own playlists. Totally worth it. Can't recommend it more highly. Full Review

    David Harden Published date: January 13, 2018

    I used to use the website all the time. So I knew buying the app was worth the money. WRONG. You buy the app just to have to buy more upgrades. I'm sorry...but if you have to pay for an app ALL FEATURES should be unlocked. All they can do is apologize about having to buy the other features. Saying your sorry doesn't make you sound any less like a money hungry developer. Raise the price of the app, or allow it be fully unlocked. It's a recurring complaint and they seem to not care about what customers say. Or listen to their feedback. Terrible app. From a terrible money hungrh developer. Full Review

    Hope Harvey-Marose Published date: January 8, 2018

    It's a good app in that you can find almost any guitar tab you want, but this app has so many features you're not allowed to use unless you pay MORE money. It has a tuning component you can't get to along with a ton of other cool features they won't let you use unless you pay more than you already have! What a ripoff. Full Review

    Alan Thompson Published date: January 12, 2018

    If you pay money for an app, you really don't expect to be bombarded with constant ads to upgrade. It's incredibly annoying and disrespectful to your customers - don't you get that? There should be an option to permanently disable the nag. It's infuriating. Please listen to what your customers are telling you about this. Full Review

    Installed only out of necessity. Keeps asking me to login even if already logged in. Poor search function. Can't use features that require login. Annoying Ad of the Pro app. I would prefer to use the mobile site sometimes Full Review

    Derrick Davis Published date: December 25, 2017

    This is a great app for learning new songs, especially with the autoscroll function. The only thing I don't like is seeing the ads to buy further features when I've already spent money on the app itself. Good musicians tool though, and would recommend to any player. Full Review

  • Ultimate Guitar Tabs & Chords
    Published date: December 30, 2017

    Every search for a tab resulted in me being stopped with an add, telling me that I needed to spend an additional 12 dollars to use it. I really want to like ultimate guitar but every time I use it (even prior to buying the app) it seems to always have some sort of immediate road block that consistently ruins my day. Disappointment is never worth the money. All I wanted was to learn some blind blake. Full Review

    Dema Abudeeb Published date: January 7, 2018

    This app sucks. Every ducking activity requires an upgrade even when I want to listen to the song the upgrade ad shows! And I can't press anything. I could have stayed online and not bought this app and it allows me the same thing. Full Review

    Ryan Deasy Published date: December 27, 2017

    Not paying for a broken app. Fix the bugs. AND the top menu needs to disappear in tab pro. It's annoying when trying to play along, scroll, accidentally hit the back button, and have to start all over. Very frustrating. Love the app otherwise Full Review

    Published date: January 4, 2018

    Paid for an application in turn to have notification after notification to pay for the full version. If I pay for that version, is there another version on top of that to pay for? 1/4/18 In response to your question: I am referring to your upgrade ads blocking the functionality of your application. Every link within your program presents an option to upgrade to remove the advertisements for the program I've already paid for. Am I missing something here? Full Review

    no better than the free ones. you don't even get the tab you get what ppl thinks it is, unless you upgrade. I can't even find half of the songs I am looking for, thanks ultimate guitar for rippin me off! Full Review

    Cameron Published date: December 25, 2017

    In Tab Tracker, the songs that were added to Play Later are not linked. When I click the song, or the start learning button, nothing happens. This really makes the Play Later function useless. This is the only problem I have encountered with this version of the app. Full Review

    Birdem Lambas Published date: December 30, 2017

    Well aside from paying just to get the app I still need to pay a lot again just to use this app properly? This is nonsense and it gives false hope for consumers. The initial price intended to bait people to get the app then afterwards charge them again to gain access on some features. Complete nonsense you guys should've just put the premium price at the first place so people will know that they will get everything in just a single payment and won't get shock on follow up charges.

    Great app. Pop ups can get a wee bit annoying but they are a business and you get a hell of a lot for your money on here. Got this app when I first started playing a few years back and would have been lost without it has helped my playing out tons! 5***** 👌 Full Review

    DON'T BOTHER BUYING! If you buy the lite version, they will PESTER you with ads until you buy the premium version. I can't access my "fav" songs anymore as it will trigger an ad impossible to remove. SCAM. Full Review

    Until they change the advertisement down a freaking oeg, this app is garbage. Don't buy it it's literally a scam. And no don't reply to this saying it's to show the other tools that you can literally get for free. Keep the money, pricks. Full Review

    Alvin Fritscher Published date: December 18, 2017

    Stop asking me to rate you and I'll put it back to 5 stars. I shouldn't have to continue to rate after I've done so. I have the full (paid) version, and being asked repeatedly, "Do you like the app?" is ANNOYING. I told you the first time that I Iove the app, AND rated it in the store, but until the app stops asking the same questions over and over, I wouldn't recommend. Full Review

    I cannot recommend this App. I paid for it, and it is still full of full screen adds. It is also a huge battery hog. With the app closed, it managed to be the big drain on my phone at 19%! With the app closed!!! I'm not sure what it is doing in the background, but it wasn't helping me learn guitar. Full Review

    i paid for this app but it doesn't let you do anything, see any tabs etc as bloody fullpage adverts keep popping up and stay on screen over the you telling you to buy premium version. whats the point in buying the app initially when you have to then pay more money to be able to use it. total scam. avoid . avoid. avoid Full Review

    It was a great app, but new update has tab too small and crashes every time I use it. Screen freezes, bar doesn't roll to show where you are, and you cannot do anything on screen. Have to close app and start again. Makes it slow and awkward to use. Please sort this out as the app was brilliant before update. Full Review

    It is quite expensive for how much it does...but well...! Me, for sure I eon't buy another update, because I didn't get much with the 1st. Sorry. Maybe if you will add new thinks, that I'll consider that is worth the money I pay, I'll give you 5 stars and, buy another update, in the future. Full Review
