Guitar Pro 1.6 was released on October 22, 2013 with optimization for iOS 7. Read the statement below from Guitar Pro.

The arrival of iOS 7 on iPhone, iPad and iPod is an opportunity for Arobas Music to present a brand new version of the Guitar Pro app. Nicer looks, better flow, more user-friendliness.

What’s new in version 1.6

  • A redesigned application
  • Simplified access to the tabs’ settings on iPad
  • Screen-reading controls optimized on iPhone
  • Whole new German translation of the app

New design

The Guitar Pro app has been entirely redesigned graphically. The logo, textures, icons, and the tablature designs now match the overall aesthetics of iOS 7.

Simplified access to the tabs’ settings on iPad

In order to leave more room to the tabs and make navigating the app easier, all of the controls (mixing-table, properties, information…) are now accessible via some “pop-up” windows displaying on the interface.

Screen-reading controls optimized on iPhone

Whenever the user turns his/her iPhone to landscape-viewing mode, the playback controls appear directly over the file. Thus, they will enjoy optimal resolution to read and manage their tabs on a small screen.

German translation

All users can access Guitar Pro in German. To activate this language, one just needs the device’s configuration to be set to German. The change will be automatic the next time the application is launched.
