Back to School
with iOS13
One of the goals of Ultimate Guitar is to keep the app updated with the latest technologies
Ultimate Guitar products have been in the AppStore for the past nine years and our today's flagship app boasts 300K DAU. The app is regularly featured on the App Store's homepage as well as in musician-themed collections.
At the end of August, Ultimate Guitar will celebrate a new school year with a worldwide guitar and gear giveaway. Seven lucky guitarists who enter the giveaway from the Ultimate Guitar app will get valuable prizes from famous brands such as Sennheiser, D'Angelico and Carvin.
Giveaway Winners
After the WWDC announcements, we made our action plan for the second half of 2019. This year, we're planning to experiment with Catalyst, Metal, ARKit, VisionKit, CoreML, RealityKit, SiriKit, and Sign in with Apple.
This September, Ultimate Guitar is going to release a new version of the app with the latest features of iOS13. Guitarists will be able to Sign in with Apple, use Dark Mode, and avoid NSFW content that will be filtered with CoreML.
New feature with VisionKIT
All tabs that are submitted to our website go through several moderator checks to make sure they are correct. This allows us to keep our largest catalog of tabs in the world (1.5+ million tabs) nice and clean. However, some users have their own tabs (for the original songs, songs by local bands, or some covers). Some of these tabs are kept in printed form only. For example, some guitarists carry a pack of printed tabs right in his guitar case.
We want to digitize personal archives. In other words, we want to provide users with an opportunity to transfer their tabs to our app. They will be able to use all features that we have - autoscroll, font size, chords diagram display, synchronization between different devices, etc. In order to implement this idea, we plan to use VisionKIt.
