Q: Can I create or edit sheet music with this app?
A: Unlike Guitar Pro for Windows and Mac, this app does not let you change the notation in an existing Guitar Pro file, or create sheet music in standard notation. It is however possible to edit a single-track tablature with the NotePad tool. Editing a drum track is not available with the NotePad tool.
Q: Can I open the sheet music I have purchased on mySongBook with this app?
A: If you bought a single tab or a songbook (single buying option) on mySongBook.com you can read your purchased music with the app but you cannot print it. If you use the monthly subscription, it is currently not possible to access your sheet music.
The applications Guitar Pro was published
in the category Music on 2011-01-15 and
was developed by Arobas Music.
The file size is 33.42 MB.
The current version is 1.8.2 and works well on
7.0 and high ios versions.
Thanks for using Guitar Pro! We provide regular updates so it continues to work great for you.
This new version improves compatibility with Guitar Pro 7 files and allows:
- Reading 9 and 10 strings tabs
- Opening password protected files (files locked in Guitar Pro 7 software to prevent opening or editing a music score).
One of the worst apps ive ever used. UI is absolutely terrible, and the app is rendered useless to me since there is not a way to download mysongbook tabs with their subscription service.
Had issues saving tabs downloaded from web and then the audio was all distorted. Reboot of the phone fixed both issues.
No matter witch direction u turn your device or what size u set score to, the cursor always moves lower into the diagram so that eventually u can’s possibly see what’s coming up in the bar on the following line. For the cursor to work properly it should stay near the top so that the completed lines are always moving up and away; or at least 2 inches up from the bottom of the screen until u get to the last line.
No multitrack or editing capabilities. Wish a refund was possible I will never use this. Don’t waste your money, plenty of free apps just as bad as this, move along
I expected it to be more like the pc version. We want multitrack capabilities,we want drums,we want a better sounding guitar tone,we want what we paid for. This was not worth 7 bucks. Don’t download this crap Wish I could get a refund
I bought this app. To learn how to play songs. I search on the internet to find out why it doesn’t connect to my fretlight it has the bottom I pres to connect and nothing happens for me to writing this is because I being trying for the past 2 days to make it work and nothing happens I try to email you and ask me for user Id ? I bought it here in App Stores what user name ?
Incredibly useful tool for learning difficult songs. But the interface is clunky as hell. Make a persistent play/pause button. I’m hitting it constantly and I have to tap the screen to bring it up. Why? Also the playback isn’t in sync with the marker as it moves across the staff. It’s off by like 1/4 note and really hurts the utility of that function. You can change the size of the staff, but that function isn’t very useful either since it does nothing to fit more notes on the screen. It just makes the staff tiny with a lot more white space. Still, it’s super useful to have all my tabs available all the time so I’d still recommend the app overall.
I try to upload anything and it loads for 5+ minutes to no avail. App just closes and I’m back at square one.
In Notepad, the application seems limited to only tab; there doesn’t seem to be a way to edit on a staff instead. There is no way to hide the keyboard, which makes it difficult to review scores during editing. Exporting to the desktop seems impossible. I expect to be able to at least export to Dropbox, OneDrive, etc., if I cannot sync to my desktop app via iCloud. Sitting in a music lesson, or in a session or at a café, this app *could* be useful for capturing music, but it requires a TON of work to useful or anything more than a distraction.
Guitar Pro for the Desktop is outstanding, but the mobile app doesn’t offer much of anything. I don’t expect to be able to compose on the app, but it would be nice to at least view guitar tabs. The number of visible measures of music is very disappointing. In portrait orientation, you might get one measure. In landscape, you might get two or three. With the size of current phones, this app could really use more information density so we’re able to see more of a section of the music. The iPad version is barely usable either.
Happy with it besides the fact that I can’t view my lyrics and guitar tabs at the Same time like on my guitar pro 7.5 on windows. If you update it to view in a dual staff that would be much appreciated I would pay for that update and adjust the score sizes to suit.
It was a sunny Wednesday in Australia as I clicked buy on this app. I had just decided I’d stream line my work more efficiently for next year will having 60 students a week it was going to great to carry less books ect. Well at least a book can’t crash when you open it. A page may fall out but you can fix that. So take point for the book and fix this dogs breakfast of an app Talk about terrible development for an app. Every time I open a file it crashes, try to import a file it crashes. Look at your IOS device it crashes, thinking about what to have for dinner the app crashes. Waiting for your dog to do its business when you are out for a walk.... The app crashes. Last time I watched anything crash this hard it was when we had the GFC. Fix the app please, develop a new one or issue a refund. Merry Crashmas
This is a perfect app for putting down tabs onto your iPad. Not too complicated, but does everything you want. I have created tabs for dozens of intros, solos, fills and I export the PDF to OnSong so that both the lyric/chord sheet and tabs are filed together. Sure beats trying to write tabs using |- -3 - - 2 - -1 - -| Highly recommended!
So glad to see the mobile app finally being kept up with the windows version
This app has like 10 artists and that’s it, you won’t find the tabs you won’t, you won’t find pretty much anything in it!! Don’t waste your money it’s a huge mistake and the app is very misleading!!
Pretty good. At first the left to right scrolling felt a bit giddy but soon it was not an issue. Having my tabs on the go has certainly increased my access and improved my play.
Very nice handy app! Recommend it highly.
Guitar hero for guitarists. Pick your favourite song, mute the guitar track and play with slayer! Best guitar app you can get.
Include drum and multitrack programming! We want to compose on the move. We could do that stuff on a PC 20 years ago!
I receive a corrupt file message when trying to load any of my tabs after latest update. New iPad with iOS 8.2 (12D508)
This is not as good as guitar pro for the computer. I was not able to get tabs from ultimate guitar loaded on this app. I play a lot of metal and I don't always play popular songs so I am upset that I paid for an app that only allows me access to songs I don't want to play.
I've been using this on my PC for years. Great software!
This is a great app companion for your guitar. Adjust tempo, set loops, select individual tracks, etc. I think it's awesome, and is my go-to app over Guitar Tabs, Guitar Tab Pro. And it works with FRETLIGHT GUITARS!
You cant practice the songs you write because it doesn't give you the option to adjust the tempo
Second to none
Great app....until... I can create tablature and then can't print it out?? Are you kidding? Ever tried to play guitar and have to scroll up every few seconds with one hand while playing? Very disappointed!
Great app that lets you playback Guitarpro tab files. There are thousands of them on the internet or you can buy them from Arobas, the makers of GuitarPro. This app is not a substitute for the full PC/MAC version which allows editing of files and more realistic sound. However, as a portable practice app, it is perfect. Has slow-down and loop features, guitar tab, standard note display and multiple tracks that can be muted or solo'd individually. Extremely stable. I practice my guitar with it using an Ipad/Amplitube/Irig setup. Has a virtual guitar fretboard/keyboard which will display the notes as it's playing. A must have.
Downloaded it and can't play tabs right the way, you need to connect to computer or iTunes and download it from there. So basically you can't do anything with this app without computer help.
Purchased this for an iPad to use with AmpliTube. Basically useless because you can't run both apps at the same time. Multitasking view only gives you an eighth of the screen not enabling you to see the tabs. Not really a fault of the ad but more likely in limitation with the iPad mini. I also wish the App would let you incrementally increase speed during looping the way the desktop version does (speed trainer). Love the desktop version but Basically 7$ for an app I will never use.
Good app. Could improve sending files from iPad to full computer version. Still, it' got a lot going for it.
Not bad, i'd appreciate an update with multitrack view, i.e. being able to see vocals and tab at the same time
Best app on my phone
Great app for tablature on the go. Makes it really easy to transfer GuitarPro files to your phone from your computer and it even allows you to download files from a website using the phones browser. You can compose songs although it's a little tricky to use, but it's great if you got a tune in your head that has to be written down in a tab. You can access the "mySongBook" service from the app. Just like the PC version of the software, it plays tabs although the sounds aren't as good as the PC version, it does the trick for getting an idea of how it should sound. Overall for what your getting it's definitely worth it!
Great app but it keeps crashing all the time :(
just bought it and i am SO HAPPY! plus its only 4 quid, given that on the pc its 60! definitly get it if you a guitarist, did i mention its cheaper then tab toolkit
Get it. It's almost perfect, all we need is to be able to compose music on it too...
Go for it, how did we live with gp files???
Finally there is an alternative to 'tab toolkit'. Both have their advantages and drawbacks. I am hopeful that the increased competition will benefit the end users in terms of upgrades, new features and price. This is an excellent app especially for a first attempt. It provides a basic read only version of the desktop program 'Guitar Pro'. Well done. I look forward to further updates
At long last!! Quite simply the best app ever for aspiring guitarists everywhere.
