Content is great

Update: Thanks for updating the app! Works perfectly. Changing to 5star!
This apps content is awesome. Mike does a great job explaining the song in great detail! The reason for the 3 star review is the app itself is almost unusable. No way to rewind, fast forward. The app does not fit correctly on the screen. And every time I go back to a lesson it starts at the beginning. For this price, this app should be maintained better.

Developer Response ,

We've just done an update (v2.00) that should fix the UI issues. Let us know if it works better for you now.
