TabBook is the iPad app for guitar, bass, mandoline and drum players. TabBook saves the tab directly to your iPad, so that you can play even without an internet connection. You add your tabs on tabbookapp.com, and by selecting "Download new tabs" on the iPad you can save the added tabs to your iPad. The built in Auto-Scroller scrolls the tab automaticly, so you don't have to stop playing to continue reading.
The new playlist function allows you to create playlists so you can play your songs live, without having to search for them in a list.
Why would i want to add my own tabs instead of using others?
Because 9 out of 10 times there are more than one version of a tab, that way you will always have to search trough all the tabs to find the correct one. With TabBook you have all your favorite tabs in one place, no searching, just playing! Playing your own songs has never been this easy.
With TabBook 3 you can save Tabs locally on your iPad, so you can play them even without an internet connection. You can create playlists so you don't have to select a new tab to continue playing.
There is also a search engine built directly into TabBook 3, now you don't have to add Tabs via TabBookApp.com to start playing. Just search for your favorite songs and add them directly on your iPad, if the song you are looking for is not there, just add it directly on your iPad.
It's never been easier getting started to play your favorite tunes!
- v3 Major update -
This is a complete rewrite of the Application. I started from scratch to really get the best playing experience, and i think it really turned out nice. The whole App is a lot more stable than previous versions, and fully compatible with iOS 7 & 8.
Ratings and Reviews
A Decent Idea, But Poor Execution
The design is nice, but there is a very limited library and it is hard to navigate. I would pass on this app.
most complicated service
1. you download the app
2. register an account
3. login to find out that from the app you can do nothing at first
4. start up browser
5. go to their website and login
6. to find out that you still cannot do anything, without your OWN tabs, but then you realize, "Ah! From now on its simple!"
So, you go to a website with tabs, copy the tab, past it into the appropriate page on the website, fill out the data, start the app on your iDevice, download the tab which you added on the website earlier, and NOW! YES! you have access to your own tab on which you worked for 10 minutes to get it there! But wait, all you can do is watch it scroll...well, better than nothing I guess!
Love the concept, but I installed it on my iPad and when I press the Settings button to try to change the font, the program crashes. If that worked, this would be the best guitar music app ever. Please fix it in an update. I would pay $20 for an app like this that worked.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
