I agree with the post above. The "free version" now and the $2.99 app normally is just access to crowdsourced material which vary a lot in quality. These leechers make no effort to even prune them of incorrect or bad contributions. They are trying to make money off of crowd-sourcing. Most of the good contributors have stopped contributing because they get nothing out of it.

So what you get is essentially an ad-infested version of the website with no editorial cleaning to remove junk transcriptions.

The app features such as automatic scrolling etc don't work well on these crowd sourced material because the format for manually typed in transcriptions vary so much.

If you want professional transcriptions, you are better off with apps that sell official transcriptions either as subscription or per score. The subscription for Pro is not worth it given their shady business model.

They have a Chords and Tabs app and a Tabs and Chords app? Is being on iOS or Android the only difference between them? Seems odd.

I think I paid $5-$6 last year. A great app because it saves you a visit to the website. Just be prepared for lots of "exclusive upgrade offers" every time you open it. Wouldn't bother me at this price, though.

I started on a seagull S6 too! I use UG online a lot, but always avoided the app because it used to be subscription based. If that's changed, then I'll in, especially for free.

I love the app, bought the paid versions for both Android and IOS, still get the full-screen popups. I'd love a bottom-line price to get rid of them forever.

Where does it say it's only a 7 day trial? If so, this is a big thumbs down.
