swhitlow's Review of Guitar ProReviewed on 8/31/19 2:05 PM
This is a great tool. I still use it. However, the iOS app really needs a completely new redesign. It is not easy to navigate. Also, they removed a feature I used all the time (in-browser search for guitar pro tabs) and replaced it with mySongBook search which doesn’t have nearly enough tabs yet. In addition to this, when trying to tap on a song to load from mySongBook, it doesn’t load (no error message, no nothing. Just doesn’t do anything). Trying to reach support didn’t work either. I went to their website where there was no way to contact the dev team or anyone. They really need to make some changes. But, I hope they do soon and I will come back here and update my review.

I’m not sure why all the grumpy people thought this app would include all the features of the pc version. It’s limited to basic features for reading and playback of tabs. It’s also a tenth of the price of the pc version. I’m cool with it.

Yeah nothing works via mobile only if you use a computer.

It used to be great when you were able to download files from Safari. Now you have to do it from the computer

This app is trash and I want a refund. 1 track creation per file? What’s the point? I thought it was to compose music. Please give me a refund. It’s already been deleted.

When I try to go to a certain spot in one of my compositions it won’t allow me to edit the note. When I try to select it by tapping on it the curser goes to where ever I stopped on play back. I have to go back out and not play it to edit. That and almost every time I go back into the composition the app crashes. This app is pretty much useless to me now.

No matter witch direction u turn your device or what size u set score to, the cursor always moves lower into the diagram so that eventually u can’s possibly see what’s coming up in the bar on the following line. For the cursor to work properly it should stay near the top so that the completed lines are always moving up and away; or at least 2 inches up from the bottom of the screen until u get to the last line.

I’ve had this app for a long time, and I accepted that it was not intended to compose but rather to practice to more than anything. As for importing, while cumbersome it was a quality app overall for being able to load and practice on the fly and I always trusted updates to ADD features or fix bugs, NOT to remove functionality. Each update made me hope the Safari/internet import feature would be improved for a smoother experience, so when the latest update came with a major overhaul I immediately updated only to find that safari import has been removed altogether and now the only baked in options are to deal with the extra steps and hassle of downloading the files somehow from a computer and import them through iTunes, or use the simple and easy “MySongbook” method, which is -surprise- subscription based, but the only simple option for loading tabs on the fly. So in other words, no quick/simple way to import songs anymore unless you’re willing to pay for a subscription, which strikes me as a lame money grab by the developers, and because of the maddening restrictions Apple has on blocking user’s ability to rollback updates now I’m stuck with this version. I was about to purchase the latest full version of Guitar Pro for desktop to dabble in composition but now I’m tempted to hold off due to a practice that seems to want to stifle competition and manipulate users in to paying for an unnecessary service. At least the ultimate guitar app/site give you the option of using their program instead of removing access. I’ll happily delete this review and add back the stars I took away if developers add back the browser import feature.

Don’t really care about lack of tones. Wish there was a way to make multiple tracks. Drums would be a nice feature too. It’s good for keeping track of some base ideas if you have the patience. Tabbing is kind of difficult on the app. Some note options aren’t there that make hard to tab what I want to. It’s not bad for what it is but it isn’t great. It would also be nice to be able to send compositions from the notepad to friends from my phone(this is the biggest issue for me).

Only got one star because zero wasn’t an option. Downloaded to my phone and iPad, but it’s impossible to import guitar pro files or other files from your Dropbox. It will import files from something called “mysongbook” which isn’t an app (and who still uses a desktop or laptop?) and also doesn’t import from Dropbox (it’s almost funny the complete lack of utility of these two apps except I had to pay for it). Paid for the app but when I tried to request support for imports it asked for a license key which I didn’t receive at any point in the process. Also didn’t receive a response from customer service. Update: This app still doesn’t open files from my Jumpshare or Dropbox, making it useless. FIX IT.
