Needs More Research and Work
The problem with this app is simple, do not try to avoid the 'chord pro' format. It's all over the internet and most musicians like to download or import directly into the song book app in some fashion or another. The author should remember, most musicians who have Macs already have several hundred songs written in Pages as well as other apps and need a quick way to import material. The way the app asks you to 'setup' songs is just too time consuming. You should be able to import text files in one frame and use tags to identify titles, subtitles, chords, etc. The editor is simple and too limited. You cannot change text colors, chord colors and is limited to a few fonts and sizes. I quickly found a couple of glitches in the software that were an inconvenience. If you are a musician of almost any level, you will soon find yourself wanting much more than this app can give you. I suppose if you need a quick place to store a few songs for recall, it's OK, but I would never count on it for storing my repertoire of performance material for live shows. Used to be you only needed 50 to 60 songs to do a gig. These days, you dare not go to a gig without 200 plus songs so that you have something to please any audience and this app is not up to that task...
Could be better...
I love the way this app is SUPPOSED to work… The versatility between devices is limited at this point. The Mac app crashes when trying to export a PDF document. Therefore, it’s useless to buy the app for a Mac when I cannot transfer it to my portable device. Sets cannot be exported either. I update a set and use it on a weekly basis but because it cannot be exported, I have to do all of the editing work on my small mobile device which is EXTREMELY time consuming. Overall, I like the thought behind the app but it just needs more work. Having spent 20$ on the app, I’d like to see some improvements. at that point I might be willing to spend another 10$ to have it on my phone as well. Right now, It’s just not worth the hassle...
The good news is, it's rather simple to manually enter a song and place the chords in their proper place. However, when creating a pdf, the app crashes and most of the time I’ve had to re-enter my last edits. For the life of me I can’t figure out how to import/export songs. I purchased the iOS and the Mac version hoping that there would be easy transferablity of songs. Not the case at all. While this app could potentially be what a lot of musicians are looking for, it needs a ton of work to make it usable.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
