Good, not great
I like this app, but there are a few things I really wish they'd change: I wish the 'new song' button would take me to the screen where you choose the key instead of the default C key screen. Also, I wish I could choose the chords that I wanted to use for a particular song. Nothing too complicated, I'd just like to be able to throw in a II or a iv chord here and there. Speaking of Roman numerals, it would be cool if I could choose to use them instead of just the Arabic numerals. Another reviewer mentioned that they wish you could select minor tonality, and I agree this would be a big improvement, since you miss out on altered harmony when just using the relative major key. Lastly, almost half the time I try to use it it won't make sound. My phone is new, yes the volume is up, so what's going on?
Helpful app to tap out some chords with the melody in my head when I'm not around my instruments. Needs: 1) tap tempo. I want to at least be able to hear the tempo before recording. 2) exporting feature. I want to send an audio file by SMS or email.
Also, great feature to record through the microphone while recording chords. But I have two saved files and they both use the last microphone audio file, so not sure what went wrong there, but excellent start nonetheless.
Great Way to Learn & Create
When I am standing in line or on the bus and get a musical idea, I use this app to quickly play through the chords I think may work and this helps me change a progression or get more ideas. This is easy to use and cannot image why anyone would not love this app as much as me. Keep Playing - Keep Learning
