BlueBand™ was developed and designed by jamming musicians with over 40 years of playing experience. This application allows creating and managing song lists, creating and managing song lyrics and chords, and sharing song lists and chord sheets with other musicians using Wifi or Bluetooth or Dropbox.
Now you can keep all of your song list and chord sheets on your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad. When you get to a session, you can automatically share selected songs or songs lists with anyone else running BlueBand on a iDevice with Bluetooth or WifI. If you are practicing a song, and also have it in your iTunes library, you can control the song playback (Play, Pause, Backup 10 seconds, Rewind) without leaving the chord sheet/lyric sheet.
If you play an instrument in a band - like guitar, bass, or keyboards, or sing, this is a must have application. Stop dragging around stacks of soggy napkins with chords, or dog-earred lyrics that you can never find (or read in the dark). Now they can all be kept in your pocket, and available at any time.

Too ugly for the iDevice
The icon is really unattractive, as is the entire app. It really takes away from the overall experience, functionality aside.
Not at all up to the standards that iDevice apps are known for. While I wasn't expecting gorgeous from looking at the screens, I was bummed when I realized it was more drab and, frankly, ugly than I expected it to be.
As for functionality? Not a $6.99 like they are trying to get. More like $0.99 or $1.99 at MOST because it is a very basic app. There is no justification in charging so much, hence I find the devs to be relatively dishonest which takes more off the score. I wouldn't have purchased it had I known they were charging so much in between being "on sale" simply for the principal of it. I very much dislike rewarding shady or misleading business practices by buying the offered product.
Should have done more research. If u look at their pricing history, they are CONSTANTLY putting the app on "sale" just to fool people into buying it.
You may not mind buying into dishonesty, but I do. I hope there are smarter woolen than me who realize this app is not worth a purchase simply on principal. You might as well thank them for screwing you while you're at it if after reading this you still decide to feed into them stealing $7 for an ugly and simple (in a bad way) app. :o)
I have bought lots of apps and this is the first one I have felt is a real rip-off. As one of the other commentators expressed, it's nothing but blank pages and to ad insult to injury, neither the app nor the so-called "BlueBand Support" and website have any instructions. In fact the latter is nothing more than a Facebook page with posts that are mostly comments that the iTunes store has the app. I have "reported the problem" to iTunes and have asked for a refund. Even there, any further issues are referred back to the "developer" … back to the Facebook page … iTunes ought to be ashamed of all this especially since this app was featured in their "What's Hot" list … bad enough the developer is misleading, but for iTunes to have you go down a dead-end … SHAME ON THEM ...
Our band uses it.
We keep all band lyrics and chords on Blueband and share on our iPads.
