Great App! Poor “App Support” for How-to!

It is a very well-made app and extremely useful. However, I had to take off a full star because of a very sketchy website instructions. If you click on to write a review you get an option to see app support. The App Support page is very very basic and leaves unanswered questions. The Q&A page is a joke; it does not ask questions relevant to the app. I could come up with quite a number of useful questions that would actually pertain to questions that users may find unclear. Furthermore, this app support could be drastically improved by adding how to videos for each feature. I am convinced they would sell many more premium Versions if they simply took a little time to make their app support site much more useful.

New go-to app

I hesitated to spend $2 on the premium version but thought to myself, why not, it’s only $2. now that i have it i would easily buy it again for $100. i’m gonna say that one again. i would wholeheartedly be willing to spend $100 on this app if i ever needed to buy it again. this app completely blew my expectations out of the water. everything i need to refer to for notes, scales, modes, and everything in between is found in this app. 15/10 rating. i want to marry the person who made this thing but i am already humbled and intimidated by their intelligence.

Fast references, fast variations, great tool

Ive been using this off and on for close to four years now and is has continued to be helpful from my early stages to my current stage of guitar proficiency.
Reverse chord finder was a great addition when they implemented it some time ago.
If you're passionate about guitar, i suggest a circle of fifths tattoo on your forearm and this app on ur phone. Also tenuto, theory, panotuner, and ScaleBank apps. Tab pro is also good for learning covers.
Keep learning and find enjoyment from the simple lessons!
