iFretless is a guitar fretboard re-designed for maximum playability on iOS devices. It replaces two handed playing and strumming with a one-touch-per-note design that enables fast, precise playing of melodies, scales, and arpeggios and real-time control over the pitch of each individual note. iFretless is not an imitation guitar for your iPhone; it's a powerful new way to make music.

Ratings and Reviews
With so many keenly priced music apps out there, it's getting harder to find diamonds like this. If you're a musician and own an ipad, you owe it to yourself to check this out. IAPs are cheap and it's a very playable instrument. Like most of my ipad instruments, I still crave a way of controlling velocity more fully while playing, but that's more a limitation of ios devices than ifretless.
The developer is pretty active on forums and will no doubt continue to update his apps.
Audiobus and midi control of other apps makes this a no-brainer.
What a lot you can do!
This is a really great, versatile app with lots of functionality. I've been using this with Audiobus connected to my ThumbJam app and I'm getting some really great sounds. Top marks!
Problems since update
This and iFretless Bass are two of my favourite, most used music apps. However since the updates they haven't been working nicely with Audiobus, and sometimes as standalones.
If I load the apps via Audiobus I get a blast of white noise that nearly takes the speaker out, and distorted graphics. If I load it up first, then load it into Audiobus it works some of the time, other times there's no audio at all, and this sometimes happens running the iFretless apps solo.
I'm running an ipad 2 iOS 7.1, and had absolutely no issues at all before the update.
