Currently, the application uses ultimate-guitar engine for search/downloading tabs. Does anybody know alternatives? I'd already contacted to songsterr, but got denial.

Hello Ilya,
After you mentioned songsterr, I went through it and it seems like they have a rest based API;
http://www.songsterr.com/a/wa/api
which I am not sure if it can be useful in our case.

But they have written:
_Need more?
Need access to tab data or audio? Email us an overview of your project using the "Contact" link in the footer._
Did you contact with them and they explicitly rejected you?

One another alternative can be 911tabs.

Yes, they have public API, but only for searching - the links refers to songster's html page. I asked them to give access to phoneguitartab for tab data, but got the answer that it is not possible due to license reasons.
I know 911tabs, but don't know anything about their API. Could you please provide more details?
