  • It's like math class

    By End of the World Delight
    The problem with learning math is that it's a different language all together, & your teacher is so fluent they forget to translate sometimes. Several of these videos just need a little more. The 'How to tune' video is basically just common sense -- but is there a way to find the next note once a string is tuned? (What fret would help you find the tuning of string 3 after you've achieved string 4? Etc.) Also, better video descriptions would be nice. What will you be covering (notes, strumming, specific skills, etc.), 'cause watching the first couple minutes of a handful of videos just to find that none is what I'm looking for can be tiresome. I would like to say, though, that this app is mainly used by my kiddo to learn, & that some older kids/folks might not need as much guidance, but this would be so perfect if it was just a touch more accessible.
  • No sound

    Looks like a potentially good app, but with no sound working, I'll never know.
  • Like the app, bugs in upgrading

    By GiantComic
    I got the app and like the features and have been trying to upgrade to pro. I go through the upgrade process but the app doesn’t seem to recognize that I’ve upgraded and just keeps prompting me to upgrade. When I try to restore purchases the app says it can’t contact the App Store. The app has a lot of promise, but honestly left me a bit frustrated.
  • Mixed feelings: bad experience.

    By OriginalLink1987
    The app in a while seems great. Adds can get annoying, and it would have been nice to use pro: I bought pro from day one. It refused to activate as pro. Reinstalling did nothing. Restoring purchase constantly received no return from the App Store, purchasing again said I already owned it, and froze as it attempts to restore the purchase. App support never responds, and either the website is now down, or removed from the web. I got a refund right before the 30 day period.
  • Volume does not work

    By kellybang
    Videos play but there’s no sound on any of the videos
  • Ugh

    By Sonnishine09
    Got excited to use my new app and even bought pro mode. As soon as I did, sound stopped working on all of the videos. I have deleted the app and restored my purchase and it still doesn’t work. Wish I could get my money back.
  • No Sound

    By CaliforniaGirl805
    This app could be great, but there’s no sound. I use the app as a way to see what videos he has available, then I go to my You Tube app to be able to view them.
  • Thrilling!

    By Millie M's
    I watched The Ukulele Teacher on YouTube and was so excited that I could blast out a Taylor Swift song in 5 minutes. I was very excited to see the app, immediately upgraded to pro and saved approximately $165/month on in-person Ukulele lessons. The chord progression section alone would be worth it, but then you add in popular songs by skill level and somehow I feel that even the pro version of this is an absolute steal at $1.99. Thanks for a fun, well-designed app that can get you from non-Ukulele player to Ukulele player in less than 10 minutes.
  • No Sound

    By Mariman Joe
    There is no sound without headphones. This makes it difficult to tune my ukulele using this app and I would love it if you didn't need headphones to hear.
  • Awesome

    By Ben Haidari
    This app is so great, unlike others, it has a good tuner, fee lessons with no charge, no free trial, and works great! Definitely recommend to everyone out there with ‘Ukes’!
