Well made app, especially for being free. Only suggestion might be to have the menus a bit less cluttered, and organize the app a bit better. Also maybe make drums a lil easier to program. Other than that, well done! Love the app!

X70%

Its a decent tablature app. Pretty self explanitory. Only problem i have is that it is such a hassle to send tabs you've made. Im trying to send the other guitarist in my band a song iv just finished tabbing out and not even on google can i find a forum to help me with putting the files in even a different format to send or anything...but other than not being able to send tabs. Its a decent app.

Could you please add a copy measure under the measure options?

K70%

I really like it...but i don't know how to add slur to the notes...can you help please? And updates can improve the reality of the instruments

H70%

After years of looking for something like this to compose on my Android, I finally found it. This app kicks Guitar Pros ass for sure. Can this let you export files?

N70%
by N####:

Could be better. I use this on a tablet, and the control buttons are so small I can't just use my finger. I have to use a stills to put in the info. You should have included a way to change their size. Also, I tried to work around that problem with a keyboard, only your app doesn't work with a keyboard. I generally like your app but I get very frustrated with how tiny the buttons are.

Only took me five minutes to realize you can't do quarter note triplets. Please add this!

Good app but I hate adverts on screen.

D70%
by D####:

Please make it so we can make area selections then we can copy and paste it or we can loop at the area selections at playback

V70%
by V####:

How do I make triplets? Everything else makes sense but I can't find the way to make triplets. Help

U70%
by U####:

Been looking for a while for an app that would play my power tab and guitar pro files Tux Guitar does both. Fantastic!

I70%
by I####:

Hmmm it will be more better if you add a copy,cut or paste measure function in it just like on the pc version. It will be a lot more easier to compose tabs if you add it

T70%
by T####:

I cannot save the files.please tell me how to do

L70%
by L####:

I love that I can write song tabs but if the notes play too fast the sound lags a bit and it can get annoying when you want to play along with it.

S70%
by S####:

The tabs a right but it skips a beat at the start of each bar and the sound is clunky I use the PC version and it's awesome but I need this for travel and if the sound was better it be an awesome app

G70%
by G####:

The lack of copy paste completely ruins an otherwise solid app.

Q70%
by Q####:

I had a hard time when using this app coz there is no guides of how each buttons work.

B70%
by B####:

Make it more easier by adding 'Copy & Paste' thing, add some important tools directly in the screen like 'palm mute and tied note, then I'll give you 5 star and this will be the perfect tab editor app ever!

M70%
by M####:

It's nice to be able to open my GPro files on the tablet without the expense of their app. Q. How do i delete notes from an existing file though? I can add but not delete.

P70%
by P####:

Really good for an open source apps. I cant find any way to write closed harmonics though, or pressed fretboard harmonics we call it?

X70%
by X####:

10 yrs. of guitar tab creation in Guitar Pro v5.2 under my belt. need to edit tabs on the go. Official Guitar Pro Android app is worthless so I tried this and it's REALLY GOOD but still needs basic things to make it worth buying the Ad-Free version: copy-paste, 8-String guitar tunings, there is a bug when adding tracks from the + button versus when adding via "Tracks" menu, and the playback is choppy on a brand new Galaxy S7. How do I make the playback tempo-consistent? Please, developer, make these changes

O70%
by O####:

While composing a song for about 20 minutes I accidently tapped one of the ads which opened on my Internet browser. When I closed the ad and was able to return back to the app I lost all my work!

K70%
by K####:

Simple tab writing program that almost does the job I want. Only problem is I can't copy a measure to edit small variations between rounds, am I missing something?

H70%
by H####:

Love it. Great for downloading mates projects, showing off my ideas on the go, and writing riffs when travelling. Biy difficult with the touch screen at first on smaller screens, but still awesome!

N70%
by N####:

Sorely missing a copy paste function. Also has a fairly awkward interface. For example, the undo button is hidden behind 2 drop downs. I think some important functions could be added to the editing menu. These two problems (mostly the lack of copy paste) ruin an otherwise great guitar tab writing app.

E70%
by E####:

Best Guitar Pro App ever,. the quality of the sounds is good,. all the dream app for guitarist is in the package.. But some time get sloppy or chunky sounds specially when using 16 bit PERCUSSION...

C70%
by C####:

Impressive, simple and inspires creation. Many tab makers are clunky and difficult to get the sound you want. With this app you have the full potential to create your own song and have it play smoothly. You can also use it to tab a song you love that you couldn't find an accurate representation of online. As far as complaints go, you cant drag a note into another measure which might end up making you backtrack if you messed up earlier. However despite this issue I would still rate it 4.5/5 for being so simple and easy. Recommended to anyone who has or would like to build and interest in playing guitar.

F70%
by F####:

Very good Tab Editor. I tried all and this one is able to play and edit files for free. Really needs a Copy/Paste Measure function and quicker access to 'Effects' (Palm Mute, Slurs etc), maybe add a single drop-down Button to the main Interface. Or even make the Interface customizable what to display at some point. Right now it takes three clicks to add one Effect for every single note, thats why it also needs a multiple note selection feature (i.e. long-press). Thank you for the great app!

Epic free stuff

O70%
by O####:

IDK why but the sound files are scratchy and broken to the point that they aren't even notes and IDK why . I've never had this problem before, please help

K70%
by K####:

The application works fine and it really does che job. The problem is that the drums get out of sync during the song, the tempo gets really messed up.

Y70%
by Y####:

Is there any way you can fix the sound

J70%
by J####:

Is there a away to view all the tracks being played at once?
