Some features:
● Write your lyrics for each section of your song (ie. verse, chorus).
● Record audio for each section separately.
● Chords display above the lyrics when in display mode.
● Save your songs as PDF's and export Songwriter / MySongbook Files.
● Autoscroll feature lets you play along with your whole song hands-free

Not the right app for me

Missing a lot of great features. No Sync. No transpose. No importing sheet music. I use the ipad app also. It works better than this app.

I don’t think it’s worth the money. I can acomplish the same thing with Microsoft Word in less time. Get Songhub.


feels beta

I took a chance and purchased this and the iPad app. The iPad app is much more polished and feature-rich, but this app (which costs more) needs some work. Chord input is very clunky and there is no, far as I can tell, autosync feature. The iPad version includes dropbox integration, which is great, but would be better if both versions stayed in sync. There is also no rhyming dictionary like the iPad offers. Sheesh. Figuring things out is also frustrating -- the app strives to be simple and, I think, beautiful, but it is not always intuitive.

So far no crashes or anything of concern and, for now, this will be a good (and less expensive) tool to replace the now dated MasterWriter. I appreciate the authors work and ideas and encourage him to continue working on this app -- I would love to give it 5 stars.


Figured it out

I originally gave a negative review because I (stupidly) couldn't figure out how to reorder the sections of my songs. I have since figured it out. A few suggestions from my work with it so far. I'd like to have the ability to click and drag sections of the song around from within the main writing window, without having to click on the section settings button. I'd also like to see the section that I have selected in settings be highlighted when I am about to drag it around. Thanks!
