  • (2022-04-17) Mac Newton: Worked fine on a select few sites, the PDF feature completely doesn't work and I can't access the website at all.
  • (2021-11-08) Mario David Evans: ITS SO USEFULL sometimes when websites dont have the right scrolling speed but this extension is ADJUSTABLE
  • (2021-10-29) Gethro Omilda: there's nothing else like it and it's just perfect. exactly what i've been looking for, and more (even has a metronome and keyboard shortcuts :D)
  • (2021-08-16) Brad Glyde: Works well but an auto repeat function would be great, i.e once scrolled to the bottom it will just automatically restart.
  • (2021-07-01) Mauro Ledesma: thanks it actually works for pdf files!
  • (2021-02-11) MeekOsmic: Funny extension, really good if you want a laugh while browsing
  • (2020-12-03) Serge As: Страницы сайта крутит, а html-файлы нет. Пишет "This page was loaded before the extension was installed. Please refresh the tab in order for the extension to work". Refresh не помогает.
  • (2020-11-16) Neil L: Fab tool that does just what I need. Thanks.
  • (2020-10-08) Yogajuku Mitsu: good for play music, metronome too!
  • (2020-10-06) Zeke Webber: It's Wonderful
  • (2020-07-26) John Franklin (RockyFolk): I don't know if it works or not because I can't get it to download to the desktop of the Tablet. It SAYS it has (4 times); but, is no where to be found. I've never had an app do this to me.
  • (2020-07-18) So great
  • (2020-07-11) Sietse Voort: Really useful, one of the few that also works with pdf's
  • (2020-07-04) Brian Schwartz: Finally a way to auto scroll PDFs! Thank you for this wonderful extension. For years I've been looking for a hands free way to read PDFs and your extension works like a charm. I truly appreciate what you've created. The keyboard mode is especially slick! Well done.
  • (2020-04-03) Andy Thomsen: Fabulous for playing guitar pdfs – thank you!
  • (2020-03-09) Paul Armstrong: The extension and the service are free and and offer a great capability for reading tabs and music within Chrome. Problem is (on executing any function within the extension): IT DOESN'T WORK!! 503 Errors! URL Not found!! This renders the extension to a great 'fool-around' widget, but as is, I would NEVER rely upon it at a gig or a jam. It might work for a second, and then you're left hanging. Very unfortunate. I would pay for a functional extension that does what Tab Scroller does, but I'm at least relieved I didn't buy it.
  • (2020-03-05) Ezzy989: HATED IT. Why Can it not go down? Ill Start Using it again when it can scroll DOWN
  • (2020-02-26) Jerrilyn: From all the apps that I tried, first to work (or at least give clear instructions) on PDF

  • (2022-07-13, v: Troy Erby: Can't scroll on archive.org
    Your extension seems to work for me on all other websites, but I can't get it to scroll on the main website I use for fakebook sheet music. Archive.org Here is a link to a page that I can't get to scroll https://archive.org/details/fakebook_brazilian-jazz-real-book/page/n265/mode/1up?view=theater
  • (2022-02-27, v: PMA: Scroll pdf
    How in hell do you scroll a pdf? Click pdf button goes to your site. If I load a pdf and try to scroll, it asks me to click pdf button. Just going in circles here.
  • (2022-01-03, v: Johnny Davidson: How to upload .pdf stored in Google Drive?
    I have all my .pdf sheet music stored in my Google Drive. How can I access those .pdf docs from the PDF Viewer? Do I have to download the .pdf onto my local drive first? Can I access all my Google Drive files directly?
  • (2021-11-29, v: Jim Simmons: Foot switch with Tab Scroller?
    Can you use a foot switch to control Tab Scroller? Can you open .docx with tab scroller and if yes; how? [email protected]
  • (2021-10-20, v: Peter Haworth: How to scroll a text file?
    The docs say it can do this but the only button I see is tp open a PDF file
  • (2021-06-22, v: Ron Ball: TabScroller Off Line
    Website and extension off line. How do you fix that?
  • (2020-11-16, v: Bobette: It keeps jumping back to speed 10 when I try to autoscroll in a pdf
    I put the speed at 23 and then i press play, when it scrolls down to the next page it suddenly jumps back to speed 10. I don't know why?
  • (2020-03-09, v: Paul Armstrong: 503 Service Unavailable Errors
    Why is the Tabscroller extension throwing 503 errors? My internet connection is fine; It worked fine for most of yesterday (3/8), but as of last evening was down, then up ... and now it's just down, period. The extension remains installed, but every time I open it, then try to execute the 'pdf' button or 'Open PDF File,' It throws the 503 error. This doesn't bode well for reliability when jamming or gigging with others. Is there another app you can recommend that is reliable?
  • (2020-03-05, v: Ezzy989: Scrolling Down
    Can You PLEASE make it so theres an option to scroll DOWN. Like A button to switch Directions? That Would REALLY help.
  • (2020-01-28, v: Andrew M. Blass: Features: Loop?
    Hello! I love this extension, and it does 90% of what I need it to do.... Is there any way for the page to start back at the top once it gets to the bottom.... I would even accept a slow scroll back UP...? Please let me know
  • (2019-11-28, v: Jamie Robe: website is down?
    Hi guys, Seems like a great extension. Is your website down? Are you still working on this extension? I hope so, as it is exactly what I needed. Can we purchase to support you?
  • (2019-10-16, v: Martin Ziegert: 2 Side view and 1 page scroll only
    Great tool, but here comes the but. When you play from Paper, then there is a gap between page 1 and 2, so the music stops, because you need to wait until page 2 is loaded. So what it would need is to show 2 pages (2 page view). When you start Tab Scroller, it scrolls down only page 1, page 2 remain unchanged. OK, one more time, page 1 is on the left side, page 2 on the right side, when we are on the end of page 1, we load page 2 to the left side and page 3 to the right side. And sure, I am not sure if that is doable at all, maybe you could only scroll both pages together but then, I am quite sure it would change nothing, because you have again a gab between page 1 and 2 and the music stops. Anyway, I looking forward that the day will come where we really can read and play music from screen.
