Ratings and Reviews
Very very helpful! The best app of its kind that I can find thus far. My only negative issue is the view of the neck vertically, the guitar is not viewed from that angle when actually playing, so please please please change the view to horizontal on the app...please?
I admit I use the solo feature mostly, but this is definitely helpful in learning the bass fretboard. And I like the sound, though you have to use headphones to hear it.
Suggestions for improvement:
When in the solo mode, you should be able to play along to songs.
It'd be awesome if there were more frets (you can scroll, one by one, down the fretboard with 12 frets shown at once).
I saw in another app, that you actually hold a fret and pick the string, that is a good idea to me, so it's more like playing a real bass, the of course you wouldn't be able to see as many frets since they would have to be big enough for you to put a finger on, but if scrolling is easy that would be no problem.
And if you could choose from real basses, like Fender's Jazz and Precision, a Rickenbacker, maybe Warwick (Adam Clayton Signature) or (my personal favourite) a Les Paul Signature, that would be cool. You could make another app with these features, instead of adding to this one, I'd probably buy it, for no more than $5.

Paid for the app on whim. Not finding it very helpful so far. Then using it I find that not all features are included.
I probably could have gotten away for less with flash cards.
