TUAW: "...pretty easy to strum out a few of your favorite popular songs this weekend"
OMGuitar comes from the makers of Touch DJ! It is a synth with unique interface and new-generation sound hybrid engine that allows anyone to produce realistic synth guitar sounds.
There are 6 guitar types to choose from (more in updates), both electric and classic.
OMGuitar is very playable and truly expressive. It responds to the speed of your guitar strumming, catching the emotion of your melody. The quality of the guitar synth sound is so high that it can easily be used in studio work as a quick method to produce realistic rhythm and arpeggio guitar tracks. You can also engage the autoplay functionality with lots of built-in rhythms!
True guitar simulation on the touch-screen device is now possible thanks to the advanced artificial intelligence algorithm that analyzes your style of playing and alters the sound accordingly.
There is a dedicated string-picking/arpeggio interface, represented as a column of 6 buttons, which can easily be played together with the string strumming interface. Note bend effect is achieved by swiping the button area.
The glowing neon strings themselves respond to the speed of strumming and the distance between themselves and the initial screen tap. The player is supposed to strum the guitar with one finger and place the second finger on the guitar at any time for muting all the strings (this option can be turned off in the settingsmenu). With such approach, many common guitar playing techniques can be easily accomplished.
You can choose from about 300 chords to play 99% of the songs ever written. The songs are conveniently saved as chord sets and can be loaded with a single tap.
Some of the world's best and most expensive guitar models have been sampled with great precision and act as the source for the synthesis engine. There are 6 completely different playable guitars, 3 acoustic and 3 electric. The tone can be further shaped with the 3-band equalizer.
OMGuitar has 10 built-in effects with over 50 presets: 2 types of Distortion, Reverb, Delay, Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Wah-wah, Vowel filter, Compressor, Tremolo.
OMGuitar now supports external fretboard running in iPhone via the free Amidio Remote app (just like the Futulele).

NEEDS ACTIVE DEVELOPMENT!!
This was one of the very first apps I ever bought when I was new to iPad last year. I soon discovered it was a bit pricey compared to other apps, but the worst thing is the developers went AWOL after a great start (clever app and slick promotional videos, etc.).
They make other apps, but OMGuitar is by no means the least of them, so I can't understand what happened to their priorities. I read on their website months ago an update was coming but, of course, it never did.
I would recommend not buying the app regardless of price until they resume actively supporting it and fixing glaring bugs. Most every other app I have is updated continuously.
They need to update or give these apps love and care
It seems like the developers have just abandoned us...the app crashes so much especially on ios14. When you click background it crashes and it doesn’t play well with other apps as a midi instrument. As in, nothing happens. Even when you set the midi input as (for example) gestrument pro....no sounds still play. Such a shame since this has the best sounding guitars i’ve come across on the ios, but has been so difficult to implement into my production workflow.
This and the ukulele version are my two favorite apps ever.
