Seriously?! This app got bad reviews because there aren't "bass chords"? this app is perfect! As an experienced guitarist it's helped me learn all sorts of alternate positions for chords, as well as help me find those weird chords like 7sus4 and sus2 quickly In a pinch. Even better, I've been picking up the mandolin and banjo recently, and this helps me figure out the chords I need In less than a second. If you're looking for other similar free apps try the "mandolin companion" (or whatever stringed other instrument you're looking for) and that will help with learning scales and such and also has a cool tuner, but basichords is far superior for learning all the chords in various positions for a variety of instruments. Use the companion series for a tuner and scales, but this app is above and beyond for learning chords on a variety of instruments.

Seriously, that this got a bad review for not having "bass chords" is beyond unfair. I wish I could give it 20 stars to make up for that idiocy.

This is GREAT app

Very easy to use, suggests one fingering for chord and - MOST importantly - shows you alternate fingerings for the same chord down the side. Beautifully laid out, much faster to find the chord you want than any other app I've seen. Includes dim7, aug, sus2 and sus4 as well as 6/9 b5 #5 and 9 chords so goes way beyond "basic" chords as far as I'm concerned! Love this app. Together with my metronome app this is one of the MOST used apps on my phone. Highly recommended.

Updated Lately?

This app works just fine and I'm happy that I found a free version for Mandolin chords. Just decided to pick up the instrument and needed a basic chord chart to get me started. If you haven't updated to ios4 or have a touch that is not compatible with the OS then don't leave negative reviews because "it doesn't even work". It clearly states that the app is for ios4 users. Read before you review. Thanks to the developers for this useful app!
