exactly what I need

There are lots of apps out there that display sheet music or chord charts, but this one is perfect for me. I love how easy it is to import music or write out my own lead sheets. The ability to change keys on the fly makes accompanying a vocalist much easier than it used to be when I was making my own documents. Making handdrawn notes overlayed on the sheets is hugely helpful. Being able to share sheets in multiple formats with other people I’m playing with is really valuable. Most of all, I just like having a coherent way of organizing and displaying music I’m playing, even when it’s in a variety of formats (pdf sheets and lead sheets with chords). I’ve also really appreciated that there are improvements always being added—one recent update made the handwritten notes way smoother than it used to be, for example—and they seem to be really responsive to input. There are a few suggestions I think I still have, but I know I can submit these. For a few dollars, this app is a bargain.

Additional comments

After my initial review and using the app quite a bit, I like it even more. I have now converted all my songs over to Sunbird Pro or at least most of them that I use regularly.
One other person had written in his review that it would be nice to be able to import multiple songs at a time, And I agree with that.
One other thing that I need help with or maybe I’m not able to do it is being able to organize my Setlist. For some reason it should be a simple thing but I can’t find how to organize the Setlist. When I make them I’d like to be able to move them in order. Maybe there’s a way already but I’m not finding it maybe you can give me a heads up. Thanks

great value for money

This is a great app — fairly simple but totally functional — for a one-time purchase.

Edit: I already had five stars but now I want to add another because I just discovered the Web-editing feature. It’s really well done, and lets you edit/paste/import/clean up charts using an editor on your computer’s browser. Nice!


* Smooth transposition * Very smooth pasting — it doesn’t always get everything (like {title: } but it’s pretty darn good. * Beautiful print/pdfs * Automatic backups to Dropbox (and some other services) * It’s got setlists and stuff, although I don’t use those features…


* The edit box is super awkward, even with an external keyboard. (Fortunately, I don’t use it much — I edit with other programs first, or paste from the Web.) * Extra ChordPro attributes are omitted from the printouts (like {composer: } for example) * Syncs are in a proprietary format. I would love to have just a directory of .crd files, so I can edit in other places or with a text editor. Those are pretty minor cons, though, and I don’t even take off a star for them.
