SongKit is an AI-powered songbook app for your iPhone and iPad.
It helps you organize, view, and edit your songs sheets on any of your devices.
With SongKit, you can edit or display songs with chords for pianos or guitar-like instruments (guitar, bass, banjo, ukulele, mandolin). The app can generate chord voicings for these instruments with complete control. Tablatures are also supported for guitar-like instruments.
SongKit works on musical intervals internally and all musical computations are exact. You can transpose a song to any key without losing the musical meaning of notes and chords. Tabs and chord voicings can be automatically transposed by its exclusive voicing engine.
The app uses a unique layout engine with automatic avoidance, line wrapping, and information density optimization. The engine supports multiple columns, pagination, content-aware rescaling, and much more. Styles are fully customizable and can be shared with other users. The app also allows exporting songs as professional-looking full-vector PDFs.
Songs are edited with a unique text-based view. You can type lyrics naturally, add suggested chords, insert some tablatures, drag and drop a chorus from one place to another, copy a verse and paste only the chords over some other lyrics, or insert one of the thousands of musical symbols that are shipping with the app.
The app fully supports multitasking on the iPad. You can save collections of chords, symbols, and tabs and reuse them in other songs, with automatic transposition.
With SongKit, each song is an individual file. You can organize them as you wish, let them sync using iCloud, back them up, or share it with your friends in two taps.
The app ships with an AI-powered extension that allows you to import songs directly from your web browser or many other apps in a few taps.
You can also share chord collections, templates, musical instruments, voicing generator configurations.
The app currently supports:
Songs with several instruments, in several keys;
Chord voicings generation for Piano;
Chord voicings and tabs for guitars, basses, banjos, ukulele, mandolin, with or without capos, right and left-handed;
Automatic transposition of tablatures;

- You can now bundle songs together in setlists. You can use them to quickly share songs with other members of your band.
- When reverse-searching, you can promote the current input as a voicing using the button next to the chord's name.
- Reverse-search results were also improved.
- A new extra-large size for the widget is also available on devices using iPadOS 15.

Ratings and Reviews
This app actually can feel a little overwhelming with all the options available. But I like being able to customize each song. Will take some time to learn. The only reason I gave it a 4 star, instead of 5 was due not being able to create a set playlist, so I can quickly move from one song to the next when preforming.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for your feedback.
The setlist feature is being developed right now. It should be available in a few weeks.
Amazing app! But if only if….
Goodness, I am actually using this app! Can’t tell you how many apps I’ve purchased just to realize they weren’t of much use for me. This app is amazing in that it holds all my music tabs in one place. But…..and this is really nitpicking here….if only there were some sort of forum where users could upload their creations for all of us to enjoy. Sort of like the Kemper Profiler’s Rig Manager. Other than that, it’s perfect. Note to developers - this app is SO easy to use right now. Please don’t lose that simplicity in future updates. Which BTW, I will purchase and support your hard work. Cheers!
Best songbook app ever!
I have been using apps for only the last 2 years for my guitar music. Songkit! is the only one that does every thing that I want/need. I was setting up my music on my computer in a page layout program so I could have tab were I needed it and chord diagrams for the specific inversions that I chose. But I can’t change the key. With Songkit! I can have tab and custom chord diagrams where I want them and change the key-EVEN the tab changes key. The best ever. Easy to use. I absolutely recommend this app. Ty
