What ever you do consider your use of this site and the subscriptions it offers. They aren't always what you think they are. Like most sites UG needs a way to be funded and that is fine not harm there after all the people that put it togther will work hard and need to make a living.

So you think this is great I will get a lifetime subscription so far so good and you then like the look of Tab Pro and think I will have some of that also and get signed up. You've been learning loads.

Then a change occurs and you can only practice with your iPad so you head over to the UG/Tab Pro site on your iPad and the first thing the site tells you is can get a native iPad app for "Free", eager to learn more you click the link the app store opens and you get the download going with the thought of a seamless guitar tab learning experience on your iPad.

Then the relaity of the UG con kicks in, your UG/Tab Pro lifetime subscriptions aren't actually any good on the iPad the site just told you to go and down load. No not at all you are expected to pay again for exactly thje same thing you have already paid.

It's outfits like this that slow the progress in everyday users uptake of online services, this is a con and they should be letting you access your Account online and your iPad (other devices exist) for a single subscription.

Safe to say I wish I had only paid for a few months and then found this out as I am unlikey to return this is a blantant abuse of the users of this site.

Ironically you've come to complain in the only community in the world that has no guitarists in it, and thank god for that.

I don't know man. The way I see it, you paid for a subscription to the website content, not the app content. Seems fair to me.

'Bundling' aside, imagine you got yourself some car insurance. Your car breaks down and you drive your wife's motorcycle to work. You tap a bumper. Would you be pissed off at the cop who gave you a ticket for driving a motorcycle uninsured? Would you say the insurance company conned you?

Don't get pissed at UG because you didn't know what the deal was. You could have easily read up on it. That pain in your butt right now? That was your fault.

you had to pay for a UG subscription to realize it wasn't worth a cent?

I've got a UG subscription. It works absolutely fine on my Android. Are you sure you're doing it right? I suppose it's easier to believe that it's all a scam than to think you could just be overlooking something as simple as logging into your UG account on the app.

Yes, UG is a scam and none of us play guitar. Did you really want to talk to guitar players over the internet?

That's the unforgivable part ( ). From what I can tell, TS joined just to make this complaint thread and then didn't even bother to put it in site feedback,

No one puts these threads in Site Feedback because that's at the bottom of the list of the forums, and then it goes into a sub-forum inside of that.

Yeah...well, it sure doesn't belong here. And it's certainly not being addressed well here. The Pit mods aren't in charge of this kind of thing.

The real con is using tabs to begin with

I don't even know what a UG Subscription is, but I do know that tabpro is awful and you should feel bad for thinking it would be a good idea to use it.

I'm shocked by UG's charging. I've used UG for years and love it so I downloaded the Android version to my phone and paid for the full service. It was awesome. I then downloaded the same app to my iPad and logged in which is great but was shocked when I could access the form, view my favourites etc but when I tried to view the Tabs/Chords etc (which is why I purchased this) they said I had to pay??

Since then I contacted the helpdesk immediately and told them I was annoyed that they were trying to charge me twice only for them to RUDELY reply to my email stating:

----------------

Hi Jonathan,


Despite having almost identical functionality, Ultimate Guitar Tabs for iPa
d and Ultimate Guitar Tabs for Android are, nevertheless, two different app
s, 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.


Best regards,

Ultimate Guitar Team

------------------

I have since requested, which is well within my rights, to have access on the iPad as I am logging into the same account as I am here.

Has anyone else had this problem?? What a rip off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
