Very Useful! Perfect! Fantastic!


This app provides for the most originality of a writer. It has a very comfortable setup when you start a new song. Everything functions perfectly!
However, I usually don't use the tab function, because it's rather difficult to use; I would recommend the developer to make it easier to handle at the fingertip. Other than that, it's very nice to have folders and the recording ability and the chord library, and so on. Great app, overall.

Pretty great


Everything good in the other reviews are true, but despite two of them I was able to find the full version, so I'm assuming they haven't rechecked and updates their reviews. As for song limits, I have no comment yet because I've only started a few songs. Would recommend so far👍🏼

Update please!


I’ve been using this app for over a year now and I really like the concept of being able to write lyrics and record in the same place. I have written many songs through this app, but recently I updated my IPhone, and I no longer can open the app! It says the app needs to be updated to work with new IPhone update. Please help, I can’t recover my songs unless you update the app!
