Great app but major flaw in that it doesn't keep the phone awake during lessons. You have to change your phone settings prior to starting the app or you screen times out at whatever setting you are using. The lessons however are top notch and very detailed, the best for a beginner but the experience is much better on a PC. App can be used as a back up when you want to take a lesson away from a PC.
Good stuff! The material this app makes available is impressive in scope and seems 100 legit so far. I am a starving artist and I really look forward to unlocking it when I can so I can have full access.
Note: this review is specifically about the Guitar Tricks app; not about their excellent collection of lessons and song tutorials. The app is terrible. The design is riddled with all kinds of frustrations that make it very painful to use: the lesson videos jump back to the start when you toggle fullscreen mode, or even when you just change orientation; you cannot view the notation or description while the video is playing; the screen turns off while the videos are playing; and many more... Guitar Tricks is a great site, with a very good, well-structured tutorial system and great lessons by excellent teachers. Unfortunately, this app does that content a great disservice by presenting it in a very poor way. The app was obviously put together in a rush without much thought given to the overall user interaction design. It needs a lot more work before it is ready.
It doesn't remember where you left off in videos, and disruptions(app switching or turning off device) makes lesson videos start over from beginning. Makes watching videos on the go cumbersome,which defeats the purpose of a mobile app.
Look, I've heard amazing things about guitar tricks. Very high reviews for the company. However. Your app is garbage. When putting a video into full screen it restarts the video. That gets annoying. Also, my screen shuts off after the designated time from system settings even when a video is playing in the app. With my other video streaming apps that is not the case. I'd say try and hire a better mobile developer for this because a lot of people use apps and whatnot to learn nowadays. I really don't want to go back to yousician because their teaching style is very... What's the word. Not in depth enough for me. However their user interface is legit. But your reviews say your site is awesome. So I'm gonna delve into the content more. See how this 14 day trial goes.
Awesome app. You can learn step by step how to play any type of guitar trough short videos made by very nice teachers! Totally worth it.
Thanks for using Guitar Tricks! This update includes bug fixes and optimization.
