It has glitches now when exporting... I would use this app all the time, but when exporting audio, now it sounds like a huge loud fan and nothing else. I even turned off the EQ as it said it could cause distortion. This has been happening for months and I even updated to the newest version. This didn't happen about a year ago. Can you please fix it? I have to screen record instead of exporting, and then convert the recording into an .mp3/.wav lol...

This app was almost perfect for what I was looking for, but unfortunately not good enough. I need a simple app to play background tracks at a live performance. The feature to stop playback after each track was awesome, but at the end of the track it plays a short sound from somewhere and I couldn't figure out how to stop it. Also, a feature to add loops into a Playlist would be nice.

Thank you Olga for your feedback. The bug you mentioned is now fixed. Please update the App and check it out. Adding loops to a Playlist would be nice indeed, I'll add that to my TODO list. At the moment, you can save the loops and access them later! Best, Ziad.

I hate rating apps, but I will here. Most guitar apps are awful. This one isn't -- it's the cutest, most fun app for guitar of the dozens I've checked. Maybe a bit tough for a beginner, but once figured out, might be okay. Otherwise, for all other levels, it is just a joy and stress reliever to play along. Well-designed and fast-responding. Requires only storage permission for quick downloads of tracks. Clever -- they got this one right. Easy pref setup. Have fun!
