Love the site! But a lot of the time i am mobile and the website is kind of cumbersome from my Android phone. I would love the ability to review lessons and access other features of the site via an Android app. Is there something inn the works?

Hey!

Thanks for the suggestion. There are a lot of steps involved, and there have been some hiccups so far, which makes me reluctant to say when exactly it will be done.

Best Regards

The website now works on all smart phones and tablets, from the browser. There is no app. Just use the browser to access www.guitartricks.com.

I have a Galaxy nexus 4.2 jb, and a Nexus 7 tablet 4.2.1 jb (both the latest android version).
With both devices the video play fine but just for few minutes then stop abruptly.
I used different browser (chrome delphin firefox etc) and different connection (3g, home/office wifi) the problem is always the same
Someone experienced the same trouble, or can advise me how to solve it?
Thank you
Dario

Same problem here... Nexus 7 / Chrome browser. Video ends prematurely.

I found a workaround by installing Firefox, and requesting desktop site before downloading the mp4. However the maximum number of downloads is 15 which is easy to reach when going through the core system.

I believe this problem is now resolved. Is anyone on Android still having trouble?

We found something we thought was fixed that was not fixed previously. Please re-try? Are you still having the 100 second problem?

Loop function doesnt work properly.
I was try on Firefox for android, taping LOOP / A B has no effect.
External keyboard and when im typing "A" "B" keys a markers A B has appears but video stuck.

It's a big time for android/iOS native application because even with mouse/keyboard android browsers works horrible with this site :/
I have a tv dongle With quad core CPU 1.6 (Ricomagic MK802 IV) so most applications and sities works perfect.

Other thing it who could be great is kind of XBMC (android or regullar are same AFAIK) plugin.

I joined guitar tricks today, very disappointed, the pages can't be seen only black, there was no core lesson window, I use samsung note in which I couldn't open any video, I think I will leave this site and refund my money.

By Samsung Note I assume you mean Samsung Galaxy Note? That's an Android device, as I understand, and Guitar Tricks supports Android devices. Ask for help at the Support Desk; click the Help button near the top right corner of a GT page or try this link, https://guitartricks.zendesk.com/home
