Ratings and Reviews
iReal Pro review
This is one of the best music apps out there. I use it as a gigging pro for practice and performance! No more carrying around those bulky fake books to gig.
Great to practice with..a rhythm section rather than a metronome and they never drag. Easy to find chord charts for free or make your own. Good chord changes.
A little lacking
I really want to like this app. For the most part it is good, but I find the lack of versatility in the styles disappointing. They’re like poorly done, cookie cutter arrangements. This is the reason why I end up just not using this app. It feels incomplete. I’d like to be able to mix and match style components.
