At first song writer was great for writing down lyrics then one day I opened it, closed an add then the screen went black and stayed like that. I couldn't find anything to fix the problem but it used to be a good game...

This apps instructions do not coincide with what actually happens. Toolbars aren’t at the bottom, they are at the top. Sections don’t open, there are icons that seem to have no functional use, and all in all, as a first time user, I was frustrated within the first 30mins. Not at all intuitive. Can’t figure out how to save to folders and so it goes on. Deleted it.

Great intuitive interface. I use it all the time for writing songs and recording version by verse. I like arranging them as we'll by folder. I use this program a lot.

Here's some suggestions for future versions though.
To be able to move around the audio files as well and link them to particular verses etc.
Adding chords with sounds.
Able to categorise the same song under different folders, headings. Eg say you want to put under 2013 and also a folder for happy songs ex.

Love it so far though
