Ratings and Reviews
Disappointed for the price.
As an App dev myself, paying $3.99 brings a good amount of expectations. Specially with musical/training applications - there's are DOZENS of applications out about chords, scales etc… and this one just falls short. The user interface is mediocre at best and it's very clunky in the way you can strum the chords, so the chord key changes often by mistake. There's a good library of chords but frankly, this would be the last place where I would research for chords. There is also a very misleading screenshot that promoted the other apps - which by my own mistake, i thought were "sections" of the app I was purchasing. I mainly bought this app because I did read there was something about "modes" and after hitting buy I realized this was another app by the same developer - which again, was my error, but I find misleading nonetheless the placement of that screenshot.
Poorly made app, with some decent potential. Do not buy it though, you'll likely be disappointed

This review is not valid because Bassman Chords app has been updated since the time review was written. We've included a lot of new functions and improvements in the recent version of the app.
Wonderful bass chords app for reasonable price!
Me and friend of mine have bought Bassman, he and me! Finally we've got an app with good sounding, very beautiful chords and their inversions! Very much thanks to developers for ease of choosing chords from chords picker, you just have to tap chords name in the top bar! Easy to understand! I can also make a modulation of chords- by tapping any note on the fretboard and dragging it. Please make "my favorite chords" system, if it is possible! Good luck!
Decent chord listing
Great app, with a lot of chords, I wish it had the scales too but they want you to buy another app for that... Expensive too!
No audio at first, audio has a bug. I've uninstalled and reinstalled on my iPad 2 and it still didn't have Audio. And then found the bug for you, as follows... I switched the hardware button setting from "lock rotation" to "mute" and audio started working. I was then able to set the settings back to "lock rotation" again after the audio started working.

Thanks for your review. Audio related info is not valid anymore, because the app has been updated many times since then. There are no any issues with audio in the newest version of Bassman Chords.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
