No, Not Satisfied
I have to say that I thought, at the least, that this software would allow me to import my pdfs. In order for me to utilze this software with all of my other songs, I'd have to do everything from scratch, which I will not do. I'm disappointed and wish that I did not spend my $10. Hopefully, they will look at these reviews and update the software. It has potential, especially for songwriting, but that's not what I initially needed it for. I should have read the description clearly.
Poor communication by SimonApps. They did some good updates intermittently, but it's clunky. Exporting is a mystery. The WORST is there is NO undo. If you make a mistake after having gotten through a bunch of lyrics and chords, you're screwed. I moved on to OnSong. Waste of money.
Playing live music I need chord charts well organized with all my songs ready to go. Now the problem I had is not having an ipad or a tablet which is where most of the chord chat apps reside. If we look at other reviews we see the number one complaint: they cant transfer their old music onto this app. Im sure it is frustrating if you cant do this and you have many songs already on your comp. However, there IS an import music function that has allowed me to transfer .txt files. Also You CANNOT import from the internet such as from guitar tabs.
Nevertheless, it does not take a long time nor is it hard to copy and paste sections from these chord websites onto the app. It will require you to do some work such as COPY and PASTE, however, I enjoy being able to further customize my chord chart rather than downloading it directly from online. The app is very well organized and it looks good. It allows us to create sets as well which is extrmely important. Want to make hard copies of your music for yourself or other band members? The app can make your music into a .PDF that is well formated and looks good and is printable. In settings we set the note of the song and the default. This way we can keep the orignial note in our records and set it (transpose) to the note we want to have it in or the note we are confortable playing/singing. If I could fix this app it would be to allow to import other files (main complaint) and for more settings options so these chord charts can become more felxible and customisable
There is not much for the Mac out there when it comes to chord charts sadly. This app has more potential to give, but overall it is GOOD. Observe why the low ratings have been given and think about if you are able to get over the cons of this greately misunderstood app.
