Ok so I'm confused... :confused: I am a subscriber to Tabs HD but now see another app Tab Pro HD. I have downloaded the latter, it asks me to login, which I do but then the app states that I do not have a subscription :(
Surely you are not asking for two subscriptions for the two similar apps? As a subscriber, I'd expect any developments to be updates to the app I have committed to, not to feature in another app I need to subscribe to?? Have I misunderstood?

@ dtb200: Ultimate Guitar Tabs HD app provides text tabs and Tab Pro HD offers interactive tabs in Tab Pro format (similar to Guitar Pro and Power Tab). Being two different applications, they therefore require two different subscriptions.

Why the heck would I change to that app if I have two subscriptions evereybody is confused, so you should re calculate your marketing studies because I am a big fan and actually this is a big leap backwards. It is ridiculous! I feel kind of scammed and really upset.

Have to agree with Fercerbar. I paid the 12 month subscription for Pro and haven't really liked its interface and tried to use the normal HD version, but have to buy a new subscription to see the same tabs just in a different interface / app.
It does make any sense... At all.
Can we not switch subscriptions at least?

Me too; I really thought I was subscribing to Tabs Pro HD when I ordered 'ULTIMATE GUITAR TABS HD'. It soundedl a lot fancier and more spectacular. When installed on my iPad, it shows up as the innoculous 'Tabs HD'. I find its not what I thought, and I too subscribed to an entire years worth. About 5 minutes later after some more research I find I could have had 'Tabs Pro HD' for a mere $2 more.
Hey 'ULTIMATE GUITAR TABS HD' I'm sort of i-balling a competing product called 'Guitar Pro' which looks mo' bet'r over all. Might go that route and count my lost dollars to a learning experience. After all, how many of us have spent 8 bucks on a meal at a restuarant and found it wasn't entirely all that it looked like in the picture.
My advice to 'Ultamate Guitar'; dump 'Tabs HD', oops!; I mean 'ULTIMATE GUITAR TABS HD' and just be honest about the plain Jane name 'Tabs Pro HD'

No argument here. This is sound advice for anything you intend to purchase but this is nickle and diming, plain and simple.
Put out an app, charge a reasonable fee. Wait a bit, put out another app and charge another reasonable fee. Oh and if you want the full experience on the web TOO, pay again. All those fees start to add up to something very UNreasonable.
Charge us something reasonable for access to everything and call it a day. Don't make us pay over and over, ad nauseum.
Until there is a reasonable alternative (let me know if there is) to UG, this is probably what we can expect. They aren't the first to do this and they won't be the last.
To end on a positive note, UG is a great site with a lot to offer. Keep up the good work and give us an option that reflects how much you appreciate your loyal customers.

As mad as everyone seems, imagine me, I just renewed the old version with lifetime subscription. Teach me to look for a bargain related to an application!
