The app is free, but there is a premium in app purchase to unlock features, and you have to pay per song ($3 for modern songs, $1 for tutorials and classical songs). I've tried out the demo song it comes with and I think it's really well done. I'll probably purchase a song or two and decide whether I like it enough to get the premium pack. Here's their website:
If you want to use a game like this to help learn guitar, I think this is much better than Guitar Hero and the older Rock Band games. I even think it has an edge over the new Rock Band 3 in pro mode. Rock Band 3 uses a vertical fretboard with a proprietary fret notation system, whereas Rock Prodigy just uses scrolling TAB. Also, you can use your existing guitar, and you pay $3 per song you want, rather than $50 for a collection you may or may not care for. On the downside, it's still a very new app, and it will take a while for their music library to grow. Hopefully it is successful, and we see a lot of app updates, new songs, etc.

I heard about this. Read some reviews. It's not available for us Australian or even EU users yet. It may be released for PC as well come June 2012. Lucky US and Canada so far.
To compare both though, and IMO, I have read that Rock Prodigy has a better song list and is relatively bug free. PS3 and Xbox users have reported problems so far. I will still buy it once it is released on PC though.
In the meantime, Rock Prodigy looks to be the better choice if you have an iOS device. Preferably an iPad.
