Today's Fire Free App of the Day: Songsterr Guitar Tabs & Chords

Today's Free App of the Day is Songsterr Guitar Tabs & Chords
Originally $4.99


This is an app that shows you, in "guitar tab" notation, how to play specific songs. It works well. It comes with a list of 500 songs that don't seem to be in any particular order....but you can search. You can also search with words like "acoustic" and if that is in the title, it will come up. You can designate something as a favorite.

It requires Internet access to access a song for the first time; but once the song has been played, it's cached to your device and can be played in airplane mode. The first song I played had an error message for the soundtrack, but when I restarted it, it worked fine and all others I've tried played fine.

The permissions do not seem excessive to me since the tabs are stored on the 'Net and must be retrieved and are then saved to your device. I think a couple are left over from it being on Google Play and an not sure if they are even part of the Fire version.

Most of the negative reviews are a couple years old and reflect problems with the app working at all. It's apparently been fixed. The only review that bothered me was one by someone who said his tabs, posted to another site, were on the app. I don't really know how unique tabs are, but I take him at his word.

23 of 43 reviews are four stars and above.

These apps are compatible with the original Fire and with my Fire HDXs. To tell if an app works for your Fire HD or other Android device registered to your Amazon account, click on the above link and look on the right side of the web page.  Amazon will tell you if it will work with your registered device.

Have fun!
