Literally. As in an application to keep Ukulele TABs on your telephone.
There are a lot of apps for the iPhone. There are plenty of Ukulele apps for the iPhone. Since I don’t own an iPhone (I gave up waiting for Verizon to get the iPhone and went with an Android phone), I can’t review any of the apps for you. But I can review some Android apps.
And one of the best–at least for Uke TABs–is, oddly enough, called Uke Tabs. It’s put out by Ukulele-Tabs.com (a site which you should be on for Uke TABs and lessons). The app allows you to do a number of things, including:
- Browse tabs by artists
- Browse monthly top tabs
- Browse overall top tabs
- Search tabs by artist or title
- Generate a random tab
- Save tabs for quick and offline viewing
And the best part about Uke Tabs is it’s free.
The only quibble I have with the app is that it doesn’t show full lyrics. Probably to get around copyright restrictions, it uses “XXX” in place of some lyrics. This is fine for songs you know, but not very helpful for songs you don’t know and are trying to learn.
Still, it’s a nice little app. It would be worth it even if it weren’t free.
You can grab the app from here, using the QR Code.
