Accessible chords and tabs service?

iOS & iPadOS

Hello. For a few years now I have been using ultimate guitar but the problem is that the app has become more inaccessible now and it also keeps telling me to buy the expensive pro version for features I won’t ever need. I can only read chords and not tabls and I have a fine metronome on my watch so this is not needed. I have issues with learning with backing tracks and tab pro so I do not think it is worth to buy this because it is way way way too expensive for me and I just don’t think it makes sence at all to me and it is very hard to get out of this full version screen. Also, the app has become less accessible and this means some unlabeled buttons and strangely labeled buttons. For example adding the favourites is a button that says something with heart. The chords view fine though a little too many buttons. I can read those but I am not liking it too bad because I just feel like it is too cluttered. Don’t get me wrong; this is a great app, just not very blind friendly anymore. I am still using the app, however, as this is the only chord service I have found. I can still use the app but it is no pleasant experience, because it takes a lot of time and effort to even get out of the full version screen. Okay, it may not be too expensive, now that I think of it, but I do not need the full version wich means I would need a suggestion of how to get out of that screen. The only features I actually use in this app is to read chords and transpose, because I have no idea how to read tabs. I never learned this wich is okay because I am a great musisian so I can do well with chords. I find that to read tabs I actually need my focus 14 blue wich is a pain in the neck sometimes. I would like a suggestion of good metronome for apple watch with haptic feedback. I have found a couple but don’t know if they are accessible. But the main thing is the ultimate guitar app. I actually got the app when it was free wich suggests that it costs to get the version I have. I know, I won’t get the full version, not because it is not good, but because I do not need all those features and honestly I am not sure if I even need those because I just want to read hords and transpose. The only feature I do not have is a metronome, but this is solved with my watch. Does any of you have any recomendations of a better, less naggy app?

I played with the Ultimate Guitar Tabs app about a year ago, and it was nice. I never once did get taught how to read chords. Then again listening to a song isn't a skill I have either.
In high school I used Lunar Tabs, but either as Apple progresses with Mac OS, the program is no longer stable, or I just can't find it online. that or a mix of both.
Lunar Tabs could do both chords, or regular tabs, or it would describe where your fingers would go.
