Grateful for Hum

I have been a hard core, verbally supportive user of Songwriter HD for gong on 4 years. I talked countless songwriters into buying it, and now, unfortunately, the developers sold it to someone who is not updating and has no intention of updating. Getting notifications from Apple and Dropbox Songwriter HD will soon be useless. I get no response from anyone when I look for answers.

Thankfully there is an heir to the throne with Hum. Does everything it should do and everything it claims to do. This is the new songwriter's dream and my new go-to tool. The price absolutely can't be beat for all it does. I am very picky about the app I use for writing my songs, and believe me, if I have suggestions for improvement, I hound the company. For now, though, Hum is on the right track. I hope they plan on sticking around. It says this is iPhone only, but it works on my iPad Pro, it just looks weird. All my support is here. If you are a songwriter in need of an app for writing, Hum is the way to go.

My songs are disappearing

This app went from being my most trusted songwriting tool to something that gives me anxiety about losing work. For the last couple of updates I have noticed the app is glitchy, gets stuck on certain screens, and will sometimes not load the audio from an entry. The folders functionality is pretty broken too - I find that the bottom panel that lets me sort entries into folders sometimes gets stuck on the screen with no way to jump back to the keyboard or make the panel disappear.

Worst of all: the last 2-3 times I tried entering in lyrics I found that after going back into the app they were gone with no sign of them anywhere. I lost the ideas entirely. I’m sadly now in the process of trying to export everything out of Hum. There still isn’t another songwriting app as simple and intuitive as this once was (and features cloud sync) so I guess I’m back to Apple notes and voice memos again.

If devs are curious I’ve encountered the same issues on an iPhone 6S, iPhone XS and an IPad Mini 4.
