Ratings and Reviews
No support, can not fully upgrade this free version
Most important, The developer will not respond to emails requesting help.
The Free version cannot be upgraded fully. I purchased the full version upgrade but this app will not function as advertised. I need a refund but Apple won’t give me one, and neither will the developer.
Avoid this app and developer. Apple makes it very difficult to get a refund and it seems some developers rely on that to ignore requests for support. Apple is a predatory capitalist company.
Ok so maybe the paid version might be worth more stars but this free one is completely crap!! It won't even let see the chord cause the upgrade windows pops again and again forcing you to pay 4.99 for extra features. Don't waste your time to download this.
Expensive, but good practice
For a free app, the total cost appears to be about $15 dollars for complete access. I say appears because it's not quite clear to me which exercises you get for each $4.99 in-app purchase, all of them or just portions of each type. This could be quite expensive, but if this style of teaching works for you it may be a good investment.
This is a solid learning tool for rote memorization of note placement on the fret.
