Ratings and Reviews
Great sound, limited functionality
I purchased volumes 1,2 and 3 thinking that this app would be an improvement over the iReal Pro app in terms of play along sound quality. As far as sound goes, this app is excellent, however, it's missing some very fundamental cords and can't perform slash-cords either. This app has great potential but needs some updates.
So good, to much crashes.
Audiobus is imposible.
Great but needs some things fixed
This is a great app, but it could use some updates that would make it better.
1) add a min 6 chord option
2) be able to open saved tunes in all three volumes. What a pain it is to make the same song 3 times because you can only hear a couple of options in each volume.
3) Have more chord options. Ex. 7(#5b9), 7(b5b9), Dim7.
Overall, this app is wonderful. I just hope you can add these changes by updating the app and not come out with volume 5million for every little change.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
