    So, recently I have become very interested in creating my own app store application. I have many ideas in mind, but I think my most favorite is the creation of a guitar tab application that connects to a constantly updating database online for guitar tabs. Thinking from personal experience, I think it would be very useful to have an application that does this, as I hate having to sit in front of my computer or laptop to practice my guitar everyday. Any suggestions?

    Keep in mind this is an EXTREMELY general concept.

    OMG I have been waiting for something like this for so long! cant wait for it!

    anyway, maybe add in a download feature, so you can download tabs off of the database onto your ipod for offline viewing. that would be really useful.

    This is a great idea! I use my ipod touch anyways to check guitar tabs on the internet. Having a whole application would be great!

    I've been searchin for something like this. Can one of the features be that you can add your own tabs to a library section or something similar?

    make sure you use multiple databases or a really large database, and it would be great if there was a way to view the ratings people post for each tab to make sure you are getting a good one.

    This would be awesome, I'm always going on ultimate-guitar on my ipod

    Some features that'd be cool:-
    - Sort by rating
    - Artist + song search
    - An auto-scroll for the tabs
    - Zoom in and out function
    - Make all numbers different colour to dashes for easy reading
    - A bookmark feature to save tabs
    - A history of recently viewed tabs.
    - Save function to hold tabs for offline viewing


    Just some suggestions to get you thinking

    ive been wanting something like this myself. my only thing would be the readability. maybe something that does powertab type app so you can have a measure or 2 on screen at a time and its legible.

    Or possibly Guitar Pro 5 for iPhone/iPod Touch! That is what I would love.
