Phone Guitar Tab is a guitar/bass/drums tab application for Windows Phone that provides search/download/stream and many other capabilities for musicians. The app consumes several APIs to give a great experience to musicians while they are practicing their favorite songs with their instruments.

To name a few; it is able to sync the tabs/music notes with OneDrive, stream the corresponding audio for the tab playback through SoundCloud and classify the tabs with artist/album art retrieved via LastFm.

Our mission is to promote the best guitar tool for musicians on Windows Phone platform. We believe that music can change the world and making it free will inspire more people to learn how to play their  favorite songs and discover new ones.

IMPORTANT NOTE to the clever people! who think that cloning this project and re-publishing it under a different name without any added value but ads to make profit out of it, would be a good idea; DON'T DO THAT! Such actions are ILLEGAL and this project is licensed with Ms-PL. It's just a matter of raising a ticket to Microsoft Support. They will take down the cloned app anyway. (So far, 2 times)

You are very WELCOMED; if you fork the project, add new features/functionality that you think it will be useful for other people and publish a different version of the app without the aim of making any profit out of it. Or instead of doing this, you can join our team. We are very reasonable and open to your ideas on the project.
