Bla-bla-bla android-> apple app

I originally was an apple user, when I purchased the ultimate guitar app and several add-ons ( around $10ish in purchases). Just recently I changed to an android user and I'm wondering if there is any way I can download the app onto my android without repurchasing it. Thanks in advance.

Despite having almost identical functionality, our apps for iPhone and Android are, nevertheless are different apps, developed separately for two completely different mobile platforms.
Therefore, it is technically impossible to transfer your purchases from one platform to another. Thank you for your understanding.

I am in the same boat - had an Android phone, purchased the app, now have an Iphone.
UG admin: what about offering a 'return customer' discount, in the very least??
Paying a second time for the same product on a different platform feels like I'm getting ripped off / UG is double dipping.. on an App that should be free from the get-go. After all, UG is a User Submitted Site, and all your app does is display other peoples property.
Thanks for reading my vent

Same boat here also.
Originally purchased on Apple and now they want more money for Android.
No one likes to pay for a CD twice as it works on all players.
Just feels wrong and we are also cheap.

Yeah same here. Bought it on iOS but moved to android. Pretty pathetic that they want us to believe paying twice is necessary. Ever heard of user accounts? Let us log into accounts that bear record of our purchases and work across devices. I don't need two gmail accounts because I have different platforms. I don't buy a new CD every time I upgrade my stereo.

This is just another cheap money grab like these INCESSANT audio ads theyve added to their site. I hope piracy costs these clowns every red cent they squeeze from their community. One more lost customer here, so long and thanks for all the fish.
