About TEFpad LE for Android

TEFpad is a tablature editor designed for Android tablets and phones that implements most features available in the TablEdit desktop program.

Just like TEFview for Android, our free file viewer, TEFpad opens, displays, prints and plays all TablEdit files (.tef format). It imports as well many types of music files (ASCII tablatures, ABC files, MusicXML, MIDI, Guitar Pro, TabRite, PowerTab...).

In addition, TEFpad lets you create new arrangements from scratch.

The files you have created on your device with TEFpad can be edited and saved without any limitation.

You can edit files not created with TEFpad or imported into TEFpad, but only the first 16 measures can be saved. Likewise the app does not allow copying the contents of one of these files into another .tef file. To
get rid of these limitations, you can upgrade to TEFpad Pro (available as an In-App purchase - select "Purchase TEFpad Pro" from the menu).

The .tef files saved with TEFpad can be opened and modified in the TablEdit desktop program that offers advanced capabilities not completely available in TEFpad.
