5.0 out of 5 stars Good app for those trying to learn new songs! December 16, 2014
Verified Purchase
For those wanting to learn how to play a song and learn the words to the song this is a nice app. In fact it is a must have app for that purpose. In my testing I found that this app is really just a link to the internet to the Songsterr web site as the exact songs and some of the functionality is available on their website. Using my computer I could do some of the same things on the web site without paying $4.99 by using the Songsterr free version.

When I tried to use my tablet browser it told me to get the app. This is because the site uses Adobe Flash to play the music and Flash is no longer available for most tablets. The app allows it to play on your tablet. The web site has a free version and a Songsterr Plus version that costs $9.90 per month. This app is more like the Songsterr plus product.

Because of its use of the internet this app will not work without internet connection. The available list of songs is extensive and they will help any person wanting to learn new songs. This app is more like the Songsterr Plus version on the web. It is ad free, it allows you to control the speed, listen to the solo mode and play songs in a loop so you can practice a part of the song until you get it down. You can even add songs to your favorite lists. You can see the words to the songs. This is a nice teaching tool and I rated it at 5 stars.

* Modify or delete the contents of your USB storage
* Full network access
* Google Play License check
* Receive data from the internet
* View network connections
* Prevent tablet from sleeping

The app contains Google Analytics and Mixpanel that tracks the user's behavior while they are using the app.

SONGSTERR does require Internet Access in order to primarily run.. and I pretty much fully expected that when I saw how small the download/install was, only 12mbs. So this acting as a rather nice GUI front end of the website, this is a very cool app.

Now according to the SONGSTERR description of their app, there is an OFFLINE method - and here it is as best as I can work it. Establish a connection, go into the app, find the stuff you want to view, and once they are loaded in, you can mark them as a favorite - later, when OFFLINE, you can enter the app offline and navigate your already viewed history or favorites OFFLINE, anything you already tapped into is saved to a specific app CACHE, upwards of 500mbs worth, and thus BLAMMO- Offline viewing. And the individual files themselves aren't that big.. the handful I marked came out to be 9mbs. So that's a lot of offline material.

And I do have to say, this app actually is far better than using the website's rather heavy-handed use of various add-on scripting, especially on mobile devices. In fact, I would go far as to say this is fundamentally a Mobile Version of SONGSTERR's Premium Member presentation. Everything works smoothly, really smoothly, on my Samsung Tab 3 10.1" screen - I purposely downloaded it to my largest screen tablet to get the largest viewing area possible.

And here comes in the formatting bits I would improve / change:

I can switch from the tablature to guitar chords, but I can't adjust the text size (neither settings nor zoom) nor put it in portrait mode to get as much as possible on the screen at once. Having to constantly swipe up to scroll kind is a bit BLEAH.

**UPDATE: I just stumbled across an auto-scroll feature for the chords...

5.0 out of 5 stars Students friend June 30, 2013

We all know the importance of learning sheet music in order to better one's self while learnung music. What songster does is it allows a student or anyone interested in the mechanics of music to clearly see what is happening. It mixes easy to replicate tabbing with classical music notation to show the novice how to really play. If you have trouble with a few meashurs just go back and isolate them and repeat until learned.

I've taken Bass lessons for three years and haven't been able to commit many tunes to memory. With the Songsterr app, I've, in one day been able to memorize three pieces just by looking at them differently.

A great app for anyone i terested in music

This is just an extension of a web service. It does not work on its own. You must give it personal information, and it assigns you and your device a unique identity.

It also requires you to accept PUSH notifications; that is usually used for ads and spam.

All that nonsense for a hefty price tag? I don't think so!

BOTTOM LINE: Don't bother.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything I was looking for. May 24, 2014
By eviljay

I'm not having any audio lag issues on my Nexus 7. This app is ideal for beginners, or pros. Any song you want, tabbed out and played back. I haven't even fully explored its features, but I already know it does exactly what I need. I suspect the people with audio lag are having device or OS issues. Not all androids are created equal, its a blessing and a curse.

Not a perfect app with every song out there, or consistently perfectly listed notes, or a bunch of your obscure favorites.... but it does have a lot a nice features, a good variety of songs, and presumably as more people use it, it will keep getting better!

This has saved me a lot of time searching online for bass tab, lyrics, hearing demos, letting band-mates find parts, playing a drum beat. It's just cool. Worth the cost of a paid app.
