A great guide

I’ve had the app for a few years now. I dimly recall some irritation when initially downloaded the free version with its limitations but when I coughed up the cash it soon proved its worth - a regular source of reference with a database that’s encyclopaedic and an interface that I don’t think could be bettered.

Not impressed

Paid full amount for this app expecting as many scale selections as there are chords. There are not!
Also could have just got the cheaper chord option and there separate scales app (which has more scales ) cheaper.
RIP off merchants.
I expect to be contacted ASAP about this.

Good app, well designed, but…

The free version KEEPS asking you for more money. And interrupting you to do it. This is a sure sign of an app that is not designed in the users best interest. In fact it's so irritating, it degrades all the solid design work that obviously went into the interface.

At the moment, for all chord types (which is frankly what most people will need) this costs £9.99. Frankly because this information is freely available via anyone's web browser on their device already, this is overpriced. (Meaning all the chord inversions and shapes.)

It's a shame, because with a different price structuring model (one not interrupting you and trying to charge you an extra one dollar for every new chord type! c,mon, seriously!) they would make a lot more money.

This could be an essential app for every musician, if it wasn't so stupidly priced.
