Better than I had expected! And I expected quite a bit.

So, first off, the tabs were really easy to figure out how to write what I wanted to. I was able to just tap where my fingers were and that was it, the symbols were there too. Made it all so easy. Then, the organization. I could title tabs! I can label what song is what tab. Then the ability to put tabs in different folders! It’s great! This could be great if you’re in a band, and need to organize your tabs. Have a folder for each album you make. It’s really fun to just write and make these tabs for songs. Overall one of my most used apps! Thx to the creator

Really intuitive

I was thinking about developing my own tab editing app, but this is way more intuitive than anything I would’ve designed.

My only gripe is that it’s a bit difficult to navigate to where you want to edit once the tab gets too long (I write for fingerstyle, so it gets really messy). Maybe if you can make it so when we click on a measure in full screen mode, it auto-navigates to the corresponding measure in the editing screen? Again this is more of an issue with the size constraints of the phone rather than the app itself.

From a fellow guitarist/developer, awesome work!

Thank you! If you hold down on the (initially hidden) scroll bar on the right that might help with tab navigation. I do like your idea though and will definitely consider implementing it. Feel free to email if you want to discuss more.

Only tablature app I have ever liked

This is the easiest tab program I have ever used. There is no nonsense about having a score along with it. Why does every other tab program try to get you to write out music notation with your tabs. It tabs, we don’t want all that crap.

There is just one thing I would like with this app. Make it available on the desktop. I often want to tab out what I recorded but and would preferred to just my computer I am already sitting at recording with, then in my phone.

Thank you! It really means a lot to get reviews like this.

Also - there is a Mac app! Search for Guitar Tab Maker in the Mac App Store… and email me if you have any feedback -
