Ratings and Reviews
Great app, limited but with great potential
I agree with the other reviewers, that this is an easy app to use. It is however lacking some fundamental capabilities which is holding it back (e.g. hammer ons, pull offs, text). That said, I really hope that the developer will continue adding features to the application, as it has great potential.
Keep up the good work. I look forward to giving it 5 stars in the future.
Easy to use, but limited. Responsive developer.
This is one of the easiest TAB editing programs but limited. You’ll have to get used to tying notes together or not worrying about half and whole notes as those are not included. No way to add text either for chord names or lyrics. This program is probably one of the best to get started creating TAB but the limitations become apparent rather quickly. The developer is quite responsive to feedback and I believe he is working on the text issue.
Developer Response ,
low G is now added
Solid But Limited
Although there is a way to indicate bends, as far as I can tell, there’s no way to note hammer-ons or pull-offs.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
