Ratings and Reviews
Basically it's a app to take your money! Can't find a chord!!
Junk is the word!
This app is a piece of junk designed to steal your money. Try other cheaper one. Why does Apple allows such junky app on their app store. Retain your reputation of quality by removing such app please! I am very angry this doesn't do what it says.
Decent UI way to sensitive
The UI is quite nice. Getting the songs to identify chords is really easy. Chord tracking is awful. It identified a new chord every eighth note or so. Does not filter silence, so will list many chords before a song starts. Highly recommend trying the cheaper apps first. I had much better luck with those. Note that I tried this with songs I knew well, or could easily do by ear, yet the output of this app was not very helpful.
