Comments and Ratings for Tabs & Chords by Ultimate Guitar - learn and play

Good stuff (3.1.2)
11/06/2017 06:51:52 4/5 By Icanseethepubfromhere
Good for printing out stuff. Not cheap but nothing is.

Adverts terribly intrusive (3.1.2)
10/06/2017 13:57:27 1/5 By froddd
Adverts are popping up all the time. Clicking link on the site only opens the app, doesn't actually open the tab you want. Pretty poor. Update: received a generic reply from developers of the app which did not address the comment above.

Can't live without it. (3.1.2)
10/06/2017 10:03:17 5/5 By MarikoTekasko
Vast resource for all levels of players. Has taught me tons of songs. The Tab Pro is absolutely amazing and the library of songs outstanding. Thank you!

You get nothing for £2.99 (3.1.2)
09/06/2017 10:27:14 1/5 By Jacqui Speers
I was looking to create a PDF and the site said this was on the app. So I bought it. But then it said I need an upgrade to export to PDF! A racquet.

Great but paid for half of the app (3.1.2)
08/06/2017 12:45:06 3/5 By Chris 3:16
This is a good app no doubt. I get to look up the chords I want for a song I want to play. I could have just used the website to be fair. They want you to pay more once it's downloaded. It's a bit like buying a car but once you've paid for it you find out that the wheels are sold separate.

Brill (3.1.2)

Learned a lot since downloading this app!

Awesome (3.1.2)
04/06/2017 12:00:25 5/5 By Oggy/R/T
I rely on this app a lot. From beginner to master there is a lot here. Chords tabs instruction & support. I upgraded & truly love it! I found every song I've searched for, loads in varied keys to try. Buy it, does more than it says on the tin. Proper!!

LOVE IT (3.1.2)
03/06/2017 17:30:54 5/5 By Emzastyles
This app is awesome it's got all the songs on there and it's really to understand :)

Very useful, progressively improved. (3.1.2)
02/06/2017 15:35:11 5/5 By Helski jelling ton
I've had this app from 1st version and it just keeps getting better. Yes there are in app purchases, that's life. My 1st port of call and great for lyrics.

Let down (3.1.2)
01/06/2017 11:23:53 2/5 By Thewonk
Feel let down with this app. Wanted to listen to the background music and play along with it but have to pay extra on top to do that. I agree with other reviews In that this is not spelt out right in the description. Save money and just use the web site instead.

Great library (3.1.2)
31/05/2017 05:17:01 4/5 By Tony Breski
The app has access to many songs which is great. Could use a section that explains how to read the tabs and play the various notes. Would be really helpful for beginners like myself.

Great for all (3.1.2)
31/05/2017 04:10:02 5/5 By God lord
Really easy

Excellent, that's all I can say! (3.1.2)
30/05/2017 10:43:26 5/5 By FunkyDung
Brilliant fun and excellent guitar!

Thank you. (3.1.2)
29/05/2017 17:44:20 5/5 By doddleoddddle1
It's made me progress into someone I never thought I could be, made me do things I never thought I could do. Made me accomplish things I never thought I could. And for that, thank you.

What exactly did I pay for? (3.1.2)
29/05/2017 15:41:04 1/5 By K13874747
Useless app just wasted 3 quid on an app that bombards with adverts what a joke, deleted you can keep my money if that's how you need to get it

Fabulous app (3.1.2)
29/05/2017 11:30:12 5/5 By Ge33er
I really wouldn't be without Ultimate Guitar!

Awesome love it

Conned (3.1.2)
28/05/2017 18:06:20 1/5 By fkedoffwithripoffwnkrs
So, looking up chords on the internet and tried to open as a PDF on my iPhone so as I could print it off. Icon pops on to screen - pdfs available via the app. Fair play, purchased the app. Tried to download the the page to print and directed to upgrade to full version advert for another 8 quid. This should of been made clearer when 1st directed to app purchase!! Back to a desk top computer to grab it for free!

Fantastic App (3.1.2)
27/05/2017 17:41:04 5/5 By Buster 57
The best guitar tab app out there. Easy to use, great range of songs, the play along facility is superb. Addictive

My go to app (3.1.2)
27/05/2017 17:05:23 5/5 By dec247h
Since purchasing this app ages ago, its helped me no end to play some of my favourite music. It only gets better and better with each update and the songs, while being more difficult, seem easier to play! Thanks for this fantastic tool

Best Guitar app (3.1.2)
27/05/2017 05:03:28 5/5 By Crypticalgaming
This app is the best Guitar Chord/tab about

Brilliant App (3.1.2)
27/05/2017 02:11:58 5/5 By Seaside Ian
This is a really good app. Informative, supportive and guiding. Easy to access and use. Thanks guys.

Everything Costs Extra (3.1.2)
26/05/2017 10:37:19 2/5 By highkingnm
So you pay for the app and get the absolute bare minimum. Ever other feature must be bought at fairly high prices for what the website itself offers for free. Wouldn't mind if the base app was free, but charging for basic parts of the app is a joke. Cannot recommend while everything is paywalled.

Perfect (3.1.2)
25/05/2017 15:15:06 5/5 By Harrybongo354
Absolutely a brilliant app! With 1000's of songs in its data base, it's all put together in a way to make learning new songs quick and effortless.

Chords (3.1.2)
24/05/2017 12:28:37 4/5 By Tgr.
This is a great app you do get occasional dodgy chords but most can be worked out. So really it gives you a starting point.

Brilliant app for any guitarist! (3.1.2)
23/05/2017 19:00:50 5/5 By Adam891
Offers great support for beginners with tutorials and tips to great rewards and guitar-related prizes in their giveaways. Has helped my playing ability massively 👌🤘

Disappointed (3.1.2)
23/05/2017 16:56:09 1/5 By Xkel999
Pay for the app and not much changed when you go into the app after paying for it you need to make more purchases what exactly am I getting for the £2.99 that i wasn't getting off safari???

Love it (3.1.2)
23/05/2017 15:27:25 5/5 By daviebhoy213
Fantastic app for all levels of difficulty

Great app! (3.1.2)
23/05/2017 14:08:58 5/5 By JTB2
Still think it's a great app. What I could have done with this when I was 18 and learning to play. (Wasn't yesterday! 😂)

Good but flawed (3.1.2)
23/05/2017 14:02:18 4/5 By MitCH18678
Very good app and has loads of songs and a good access to apple music but wayyyy too many in-app purchases. It has loads of buttons for extra features like share or metronome (which as an amateur guitarist would be great) require another payment after the £2.99 I already paid for the app. Still, it has the songs I wanted to play so I would still recommend but be warned.
