Chord charts (transposable), playalong, practice, live

Jazz, Latin, Pop and Blues styles to playalong with, editable charts, forum provides thousands of charts submitted by other users. Each version update brings more features. I sync my Apple devices, iPhone, iPad, Mac (e.g. alterations and additions at rehearsal are right there on my Mac when I get home).

Great tool for learning chord scales, and has guitar, ukulele diagrams and piano voicings.

The editor is easy to use, there are options for a new blank song and it's form, and up to 96 measures if you squash them in. Very useful for singers and songwriters because you can create your chart with possible chords and hear a backing as you work on lyrics.
It's a required app for many music courses around the world.

I use it in the background with a music PDF app to read my notation from as it does not allow notation or lyrics within itself but some just export the audio track of their songs and attach them to each PDF page and play it from there.

I've arrived at gigs and all the bands are using it, so it's easy to sit in.

A definite buy for musicians.

Perfect Resource for Jazz Muso's

This application was the most expensive I've ever purchased, but it is well worth every cent. Not only do you not have to lug around Real books anymore, but the option of transposition, editing and saving charts is fantastic. The backlight, always on function, in either white or black background makes for day or night gigging a breeze. I've yet to play more than 4 hours with it, but the developer informed me he could get about 6 hours worth - more than enough for most jazz gigs, save those long night-morning sessions at Samois. The developer not only updates the application, but responds to enquiries. The option of uploading your songs to contribute to the pool is also another great option - one I haven't yet used.

More people using it than rating it:-)

Thank you for a great tool, guys, muses are such a disorganised bunch that I am sure more of me using it and loving it than those who can be bothered to rate it. Please, if you can, somehow change the chord symbols on more frequently used ones if you can, for example, G#major to Ab major( even though the first one is theoretically correct), C# major to Db major, etc. Also, it would be great to have more comping variety, as it gets monotonous sometimes. But in general, thank you very much!
