  • Great developer who cares about feedback

    By calvinbrodice
    I posted a negative review of v1 and made a comment about colorblind accessibility. The developer took this feedback and in v2 released this feature. This is a gem of an app backed by a first class developer. Great work!
  • App is great!

    By Mike Fox 🤟
    I love using this app, but one glaring issue is that the app doesn't distinguish chords like Cmaj7 and C7! Hopefully this gets fixed soon! Other than that, the app is super helpful for song writing, testing chords, looking at scales on the go, and much more!
  • Love it, but it needs keyboard support!

    By ZEUS9296
    I love the app but I cant seriously until there is keyboard support, It doesn’t need to be complex (while that would welcomed) all that is really needed is that you could use the keyboard to play cords.
  • Great Find

    By Hallstr
    What a flexible tool. Music theory made easy.
  • Lifesaver

    By DevonLeann
    I have had a ton of songs that I’ve written lyrics to just wither away, collecting dust because I just couldn’t seem to find the right chords to accompany them.
  • It’s really good, but...

    By Allstar1609
    This app is great, it is a really good tool for musicians. Although I think it could use some improvements: 1.) The ability to use different chord voicings would be great and is definitely something that would be helpful. Maybe use the piano to change the voicing. 2.) the way you change chords on your chord progression was kind of unintuitive to me especially when I’m trying to listen to a chord in my progression and then listen to other chords to use or follow up with and then I accidentally replace the chord in the progression. I’m not sure how to you would go about doing this because I know app design is difficult.
  • Make changes please

    By Sonero91
    Please add chord changes within a bar.. at the very minimum with the update. Would be nice to have chord inversions too.. but otherwise nice app. Will only call it ultimate with listed changes.. Thank you
  • Circle me impressed!

    By Dmccollum
    This app is awesome!
  • So helpful for musicians and songwriters

    By TimTomSr
    What I’ve been looking for in an app for a long time, it’s exactly what a songwriter needs to help formulate chord progressions that visually makes sense
  • So so useful.

    By Just Thomas
    Nice job. I just saw your App on Instagram purchased it and I am using it like a pro, Especially to replace other apps that held back on key useful features. Thanks guys.
