    So just taking a quick peek on YouTube, I found a bunch of iPhone guitar apps and people actually playing covers on them. I'm sure the android market has something as good, anyone have one? Use one?
    I'll be getting the Droid Incredible asap, just prepping myself for some sweet app downloads when I get it!

    Bumping this up...got my phone today and can't find a good guitar app I like. Every one of them just has chords you can play. Am I missing something? I've only tried free apps. I just want an empty fretboard, something like this: YouTube - Iphone/Itouch Pocket Guitar app- Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here
    If I could move up and down the fretboard too that would be sweet. Any ideas?

    Wish I could write code. There isn't much out there yet in the Android market for pro guitar tools. :-(

    Guitar Toolkit is listed as one of the top grossing apps on the iTunes app store, and at $10 per download, that has to be some serious cash. I contacted the developer and they told me they have no plans to port their app to the Android market. I have no idea why, as the potential for a comparable Android app has to be HUGE!

    If there is a developer out there that needs assistance in putting something like Guitar Toolkit together, I would be happy to lend a hand from a technical advisory perspective. I also own a graphic arts company, so the UI graphics possibilities are endless.

    Last comment in this thread was 6 months ago. Is there yet a good Android app to compare with those on iPhone?

    Well, I haven't found anything as robust as Toolkit. But I did find 2 apps that are getting the job done pretty well. The gStrings tuner is pretty good, and Fretter for guitar chord finder is really good. In my opinion, the best chord finder I have seen.

    Hey all,
    I'm a software developer by day and 'Metal-Guitarist' by weekend. I've really honed my chops on guitar over the years and found a way to make an app that puts them to good use. Anyway, It is my second phone app and want people to try it out and feed back. It is called Guitar GizMoe. I finally have it on iTunes and it has been on Android marketplace for a few months.

    This app was built as a way to remember guitar riffs that I have written. Recently, I was invited to an impromptu jam session and found that I had trouble remembering many of my guitar riffs. It is just good fun to mess around with by mixing and matching different rythms and harmonizing them on top of each other. It makes me feel like I do when jamming with other musicians. I hope others would find it fun too!

    I'm not sure if I should turn it into a learning tool?

    My first post to the forum. If I might resurrect this thread -- I'm a guitarist and I found out from a Guitar Center employee the other day that there are iPhone apps that turn the iPhone into an effects processor/amp simulator. One uses a special cable to jack their guitar into the phone. Apparently there are apps that do this and also allow the playing of backing tracks so you have something to play along with as well. Always nice. I've been looking for something like this for Android but so far have come up empty-handed. Just wondering if anybody here might have heard of something similar?

    One of these on iStuff is called iShred. and you use a Griffon guitar cable to connect into your phone. Not sure if the developer has anything going for Android yet. Would be sweet though.

    iShred LIVE - iPhone and iPad Guitar Effects!

    Hi,

    I've created a new application called "JamGrid" that allows to auto-play a cool backtrack (drums, bass, rythm) based on the capture of a simple chord grid.
    Once your chord grid is defined, just pick a musical style (rock, jazz, bossa, ...) and the embedded automatic harmonizer will play the backtrack accordingly.

    Then, let's go for hours of jam and improvisation !

    Please have a look at it. It's totally free !

    Whoa, I'll have to look into this jamgrid, that sounds awesome for some light practice.
