  • Won't open my music to play along with now

    By Jomoma Man
    I used to love this app but you need to make it BlueTooth able so as to play it over a Bluetooth speaker and not hard wired out!!!!!
  • Best Guitar App

    By Zkeatsjkc
    I have many instrument apps and believe this one is still the best for just letting loose and shredding. The effects are great and the interface is intuitive. And thanks to the responsive developer for adjusting fret size on large devices!
  • Disappointing

    By Lesnerelli
    It's really disappointing to me that it took this long to get updated for the bigger screens and now that it has, it doesn't work right. I have a progressive disease and used to play guitar 4 hrs everyday until I couldn't anymore physically. This was a decent replacement and I actually have sat in and live jammed with people using it. But now after this update it's totally unusable... back to not playing for me :( Please fix guys!!! I mean, I could seriously have been a sponsored artist on here, I could play it like a pro! It amazed people all the time. I'm really not trying to sound braggy, just illustrate my commitment to your product. Been on it since the first iPod touch, back when you had an acoustic version too (which I miss as well).
  • Exceeds My Expectations Beyond Words

    By America's App Advisor
    Updated ... OMG!! It Has Exceeded My Expectations Beyond Words & Still Outperforms So Many Apps. If you're thinking about getting ANY APP in the entire store and you don't have this App yet? You hopefully experience what I have experienced because this App has paid for itself one thousand times over! And yes I do love it that much and I AM gonna marry it ...
  • Oh yeah!

    By Drelbs2345
    I've had this fantastic guitar app since I was using a 2nd generation iPod Touch and am super glad to see the 64-bit refresh! Rock-solid guitar playing here, choose up to 10 chords to switch between and then you can strum chords or play individual strings to your heart's content. Includes a number of basic effects, this is a great app to pick up and play with...

    Sounds are definitely good enough to use! Heard it first with Atomic Tom. I love it even more in use in my studio!
  • It Shreds!

    By dammaged j
    This is a great tool for rock ideas on the road. I simply load it and start shredding. The sound is pretty amazing for an app. I would love to see some new updates like Audiobus!
  • Ishred Iz The DamnJam

    By Dobido App Phreak
    Years later & I still love this app. Luv this & the Guitar app. Upgrade the Guitar app with some additional accoustic guitars & I'll give both of these the phreaked-out 5 rating! I recently complained abt the app crashing & being unable to move songs in the playlist: both issues have been resolved by the recent update. Thanks a lot. This way my most used app. (still want different sounding axes in GUITAR, esp. a sweet blues ax & maybe a Mandolin(?) )
  • Secret weapon

    By Corrilogian
    I might be the only person I personally know that has this app,not sure if it's even been updated for a while...but I love it! Use it as a notebook for song ideas I can bring directly to my guitar players...
