  • Free version is crap. Apple version is expensive.

    This app should not even been listed as "free with in app purchases." Free gets you nothing but a glimpse; 4 or 5 seconds of a song. $60 a year is a ton of money for this app. Compare this to $5 dollars for the complete program on android. This difference shows they they are robbing us. I ended up getting a subscription of guitar tabs app for $15 a year until I can get an android.
  • Love it

    The ability to slow it down and then gradually speed up when ready has really helped with thrash metal.

  • Paying for IOS subscription doesn’t give access to website

    By xdxaxnxixexlx
    I wish that this was the headline on the subscription pitch. This seems insane to me. In the FAQ section it explicitly says that you have to pay twice. Pretty gutsy for a service that relies on users to do all the work. I will change this to 5 star if this issue is taken care of. I will cancel my subscription by 3/2/2019 if it is not resolved by then.

    Very good app
  • Lots of good features

    By mjbanka
    Accurate tabs, and great features to let you learn the song at your own pace, plus the tabs for the other instruments and melody are great. I use this app very often.
  • I'm impressed

    By leopardhyena
    This app really helps and almost every song I look up they have. I think the price is very fair also.
  • Not Ready

    By TheRealRory
    This app has a lot of cool features but there are a lot of inconsistencies. Some songs have a chord chart page, but most don’t. Some songs have the lyrics in the tab that scrolls, but most don’t. You can see where this is going. Not a complete package. Worst of all, the tab notes and sound of the guitar or bass notes don’t match up and are out of Sync at any speed above 50%. So playing the song at normal speed 100% results in everything being off by a full beat. Now, since all tabs are submitted by anyone who wants to contribute a song this is probably why most things are incomplete as there may not be a requirement to provide a Chord Chart page or words over the scrolling tab? If this is not the case then why? This app really feels like a work in process and if it were my app I wrote I would not be charging a fee on its current state. I would let people use it in its current state and then charge the 4.99 when the app is complete. This would motivate the creators to complete that app before getting paid. I would rather have a 1000 song completed correctly than 500,000 inconsistent songs etc... I’m for hire if needed...
  • Awesome Service

    Love how easy it is to learn from Songster.
  • Downloaded but price needs lowering

    By MizMM
    Until you pick a reasonable one time price I’m not going to pay for this. I can’t even tell anything about it and have better tabs free. My guitar teacher got grandfathered in early at a low one time price so that’s the only reason I ever considered it but I don’t pay anyone $60 a year the rest of my life. Pick a one time price. Even $60 once is too high but I would pay it one time. I can’t pay ongoing endlessly due to the type of virtual card I use. It needs to be a one time charge.
