Nearly there…

This app is great overall and very nearly suits all of my meager needs. One feature I’d love to see implemented is a simple automated scrolling of the tab with a speed selector. Performance mode is pretty nifty, but isn’t quite a fit for me as I find it distracting for one, and haven’t the coordination to issue facial gestures while concentrating on playing, singing, and operating foot switches. I just need to be able to quickly glance at the tab while playing to find my place when I get lost. It would be great also if there was a pinned header that displayed things like the song name, tempo, key, and chord structures while the tab scrolls beneath. Ancillary is the scrolling but those other items would provide great additional value, IMO.

Wow, this little app has come a long way!

This app has really matured in the past couple years. Initially quite simple, it can now import tabs from the web, perform mode, cross device sync, and key transposition (though transposing still has a bug whereby only the verses and choruses reflect the key change, leaving the intro and other sections in the old key). Still, it’s quite adept and useful. Once the bug is fixed, 5 stars!

Screwed Up the App in a recent update

I have been using this app for years and recently it just keeps crashing after one of your updates. I can’t access many songs I have tabbed, which really pisses me off!

Revision: The update fixed the problems I was having and I’m grateful. It would be great if my tabs could be saved on iCloud and played on any iOs device.
