Viewer reviews from iTunes

So many bugs (1/5)

Everything about this app is broken now. I have had this app for 5 years and it has never been so terrible. I can’t play songs in the background anymore, I can’t use it offline, it doesn’t like to work at all sometimes, and the auto scroll for the interactive tab is awful. This is literally terrible. - johi1999

Always Remember (5/5)

We don't always have time to practice and keep things memorized. This app will always have your back. It makes it very simple to remember how to play your favorite songs and learn new ones. 🙏 - Commonwisdom

Great Concept They Can’t Get Right (3/5)

I have had problems with each of the last several versions of this app, for quite some time the app would freeze, you couldn’t select anything unless you scrolled a little bit then it would finally let you select it. Now the problem seems to be with the auto scroll function, when it gets to the bottom of the page it automatically goes back to the top regardless of whether you’ve actually finish the song or not. This is extremely annoying. - AG-Unit

The update made it horrible (1/5)

I use to transpose with such ease Now there is a crowded menu that I have to go to... I was going to buy premium but not after the update Terrible interface compared to the older version - Noahnrg

Los Lardons (3/5)

Make it all free. We watch the terrible ads. We get it. Just make it all free. Find another way to bolster your income. - Los Lardons

Still works but not worth the money (1/5)

App used to work better when it was free. Too complex and looking for different app to use - the french tickler 69

Simply the best (5/5)

Best guitar and ukulele tab app that has ever been made in the whole universe for all time forever everywhere! But seriously this is a ton of fun. - joshua egglebury

Gr8GtrAPp (5/5)

This app is lit. - zmzmzmzmzmzmzmzz

Really really helpful :) (5/5)

Obviously way better if you upgrade to premium, but even without, this app is awesome. - Jamipo!

Needs De-bugging (2/5)

All the tabs I downloaded worked great at first. Now for the last few weeks, when I tap on a song to open the tab, nothing happens. I rebooted my phone, uninstalled & reinstalled the app and logged in again but it didn’t help. I emailed customer support & they said to scroll up or down & then tap the left or right side of the song title but that didn’t help either. Right now the app is useless to me. I hope this is a bug that’s being worked on because I paid for the pro version and loved it when it worked. - secret musician

Too Many Ads (1/5)

Used the app for about five minutes and that was enough for me to realize that if you’re looking for a free app this is not the one for you. This app will not be user friendly unless you subscribe. I’m sure it’s great if you pay the money for it. - castanu92

If I could give this app infinite stars, I would. (5/5)

First got this app when discovered I was a loser in high school and started playing guitar in 2010. This app is for everyone. Beginners to Pros. Simple to use for chords during live shows, or even just practice. Wanna listen to the song to help you practice better? It’ll let you play it and it’ll even auto scroll. Gets even better when you buy the full app and get the Tab Pro choice, because it’s a life saver beyond a doubt, especially if you play multiple instruments or want to slow down a specific part for maximum shred practice. Everything you need from tuner to chord library, and THEN some. 8 years later, I’m STILL turning to this team for everything I need, and the app gets better every day. Wu-Tang is for the children, but Ultimate Guitar is FOR THE PEOPLE. - Michael 40 Hands

So much love (5/5)

Thanks for building this splendid platform - Gingerjoo

Amazing (5/5)

I’m a total beginner and ultimate guitar helped me understand and play my favorite songs. - spike292

So Grateful (5/5)

So grateful!! Love it that when a song comes to mind that I want to worship with, I can go to Tabs & fins ALL the lyrics and the CORRECT chords, and immediately enjoy playing it myself!!! Thanks, guys!!!!! - The Modulator

This App Is Da Bomb (5/5)

Great app for chords and chord diagrams to all your fave songs 🎶🎸 - Marie61fl

Too many adds and updates (2/5)

If you want to learn a song without being absolutely bombarded by "updates" and advertisements, I would highly suggest never downloading this app. Just use their website. Every single time I open this there are at least 9 pages of update details I need to scroll through before I actually get to search for the song I'm learning. Therefore, this app is a waste of my time and could quite possibly be a waste of yours as well - th3ha993n1n9

Newest version is the bomb! (5/5)

Dark mode and changeable text and chord sizes are great. Great App!! - MizmoCavite

Getting better for ukulele (4/5)

They recently added support for ukulele chords on ukulele tabs. Helpful! I hope they will have more ukulele-friendly features in future like supporting uke tunings on the tuners and chord lookup features. - Ooopsnevermind

Pretty darn good! (4/5)

This app is pretty cool. I love that you can play the song from Apple Music and play along with it. Very handy for learning the tempo. Also nice that the words scroll along with you, and you can adjust the speed. A nice variety of songs. I just wish you didn't have to pay for it so much! Usually I stick with free apps, but since I love this app so much I’ll buy it. - FlowerChild🌸🌺

Why did I wait!? (5/5)

Still a little too many pop-ups but probably the best money you’ll ever spend on an app. - DKR77

Perfect (5/5)

Great app for a novice!! - Cloud Seer

New improvements worthy of praise (5/5)

Recently, this app has had some serious work done. New features, fixes, etc has greatly improved the flow, usefulness, and enjoyability of the app. I can tell that the devs are working hard to make the app better. Keep up the good work. - DarthGriffindor

fantastic app (5/5)

free easy to use can save favorites consistent updates and quality of life features what more can you want? hope they keep up the fantastic work Thanks Ultimate Guitar! - Holdfast1028

Autoscroll speed Issue (1/5)

A really great app, and fantastic update minus one change. The granularity that you can adjust the autoscroll speed has been reduced! You are now forced to adjust the speed increments of .1 instead of the previous .01 in their units. Sounds like a small thing but there are a few songs I practice with the app that I am now unable to sync up the scroll speed anymore. This is the only reason I did not give 5 stars, it really cramps my style to stop and adjust speed midway through song! The new features that were brought down from the pro tier are very cool and handy. Also the addition of Spotify to the auto play is super convenient. I do not have Apple Music so I would previously flip back and forth from Spotify to UG app. Much better now! Interactive tabs are very cool as well. - Farmerjoe19

Must have ap for musicians (5/5)

I have learned so many songs with this ap. Users may choose the skill level (various options of dongs available) and the library is enormous. Tech support is readily available and super helpful. Awesome program. - Rabbitturd

Best Guitar App Out There (5/5)

Ive been using this for a few years now I think 2015 is when I go it but never made a profile. This app is what allowed me to learn guitar. I didn’t really learn what I wanted with a teacher so I left and taught myself with the help of this app. It allows you to learn the song in your own tempo or the the authors tempo. You can add you’re own spin to songs to. It’s better than videos because you get to learn at your own speed. I would pay for pro. Definitely worth it. - MisterMerrick

What am I supposed to do with this (1/5)

‘Free’ version is a naggy, spam-infested, willfully unusable, hot mess. Find the same content faster by uh, searching the web, dummies! - ARadford

Good but bad (4/5)

I love this app and the fact you can follow along and listen to the song as you play. However I am having a hard time finding the songs I have ❤️’ed or favorited. I also wanted to print this and share it but most of the stuff on here are with membership :( - Please make this feature

very disappointed (1/5)

i paid 1.99 for this app and now you have to buy a membership to transpose. i will not recommend this to a friend. extremely disappointed, going to look for another appZ - Heya😏🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗

Love this app (5/5)

This app is a learning tool. I’m on it daily. - Loukaps

The tab keeps bouncing back up to the top when I get near the end. (2/5)

I like the app for the most part, however the tab when it is in auto play mode and you follow along bounces back up to the beginning of the song before the song finishes. It’s really annoying and I lose my place in the song. Is there a way this can be fixed? I have an iPhone. Thanks. - ArmyAG02

Tabs review (4/5)

It’s very good. It has very good contact content, has a lot of songs, I personally think should have more songs, have more songs in ukulele, piano, flute, percussion, brass, Woodwinds. I think they should have more songs and more songs by more people and I also think that they should have a comment section where you can comment what songs you would like to see. Can we make that happen? 😁 I hope so - ukubro

Quality for beginners and beyond (5/5)

Community created tabs and great utility - Dill1234511

BUG IN Auto Scroll (1/5)

There is a severe bug in auto scroll where when it gets to the end or close to it it auto fixes to one spot and you can no longer see where you were playing without stopping to scroll with your fingers, which let’s be honest it’s really hard when you’re playing the guitar. - S.Lebowski

A total rip-off, wish I could give it zero stars. (1/5)

I bought this app back when it was a flat rate, then after the update it asked me once again to pay $10 dollars to unlock everything. Now it’s asking for a monthly subscription?! Seriously what’s next? 0.99 cents just to open up the app? WORST THING IS ADS!! Ads in an app that i paid real money for. I have gotten at least five Bitcoin ads in the few minutes that I used it. Save your money. Use your browser to check out tabs, there are other tuner apps for free. - PMA2000

Ukulele chords!!! (5/5)

FINALLY!! - 死のオタク

Essential (5/5)

Sweet app always makin killer updates every song you could think of - hrvykrtzmn

App For The Ages! (5/5)

These cats have upped their game a couple of levels lately. The “watch video” option is a particularly pleasant piccolo. I dig it and think you will too. Peace. - Denver Buzz

Brings me back (5/5)

So great, can have tabs on my phone! - candyman4321

Greatest Tool (5/5)

You think of or hear a song, you want to play it and you go to Tabs and by God it's there. Words and chords just waiting for you. I love this app. It has added so much to my guitar playing/singing. I also love the auto-scroll feature. - Therapist_doc

Great, just one thing (4/5)

Ok I love this app, but it seems that it constantly forgets that I have premium and I have to click restore every time... so that’s kind of annoying - Stargirl17799

I used to love this app and use it every day. (1/5)

This new update has completely ruined the app. It’s super slow and the automatic scroll screws you up when you play along. When it reaches the bottom of the song it jumps back up to about halfway through the song and then you have to manually scroll back to where you were. I get very frustrated with it now. This is the only app I use to play my ukulele. Unless this is fixed I’ll find a new one to use. - I love you guys so much!!!

Long time gutair crazy person (5/5)

I enjoy it (3/5)

Very nice I like that everything is very well connected. I am a beginner bassist. So I would like to more of the songs have good bass tabs and maybe show what the actual notes look like. - The DUBY

Perfect (5/5)

Love this App. Very useful tool. - D-Rod44
