D'Chords is the quintessential hand-held guitar chord library brought to you by D'Addario & Company, Inc., the world's largest designer, manufacturer and distributor of musical instrument accessories.
D'Chords is a companion to D'Addario's complete guitar scale and arpeggio app, "D'Scales."
The D'Addario D'Chords puts a comprehensive and accurate library of over 7800 guitar chords into the palm of your hand. The D'Chords displays the notes and fingerings on a virtual fretboard, and allows you to view each chord selected in every position up and down the guitar neck. You can even strum the virtual strings to play and hear each chord in pristine audio. The library is separated into Root, Chord Type and Chord Variants, allowing you to navigate to any chord easily and quickly. The D'Chords even has a "lefty mode" for the often-ignored left handed guitarist. Enjoy exploring and expanding your chord vocabulary with this easy-to-use, comprehensive library.
- More than 7000 chords in the Library

D'Chords was developed by Audiofile Engineering, a leading developer of audio software for Mac OS X and the iPhone.
This update addresses a minor display issue when navigating the fretboard in landscape view.
Ratings and Reviews
This app is okay. The original from Planet Waves was better, and this "refresh" leaves much to be desired.
First, it looks okay; not spectacular, and it is spartan if you like that look. It only works on the iPhone, so avoid it if you only have an iPad. If you do have an iPhone, the controls work but space is cramped unless you have a larger phone model.
Guitar Master might be a better choice over this because it comes with many more options.
So three stars because it works, but the lack of iPad support is a detriment in my view.
Half step off on newer iPhone 8+
As a reference chord tool these apps are a great assistant, but this and the D’Scales app are off key on my new iPhone. I’m guessing these apps are no longer supported with updates?
What's happening its crashing now
The new update keeps crashing. Fix please
