Chord Calculus Lite is a limited version of Chord Calculus, a tool for players of fretted instruments. ChordCalculus will allow the user to choose from a large number of pre-defined fretted instruments in a variety of tunings. Additionally, the user can define new instruments and/or tunings. Single or multiple capos can be added.

The Lite version has a limited variety of instruments, and lacks the ability to save new instruments, progressions and configurations. Also, iCloud syncing between devices is disabled.

The user picks from one of four operating modes using the segmented selectors at the center top of the display:

* (C)hord Calculator:

Show all fingerings for chords for a given instrument/tuning, filters, capos, and fret span.

* Chord (I)dentifer:

For a given instrument/tuning and fingering, display all possible names for a chord

* (S)cale Display:

For an instrument/tuning, key and scale type, display the scale, and play a two-octave scale

* (P)rogression Player:

Derived from chord mode, display fingerings for a chord progression. Also plays chords in sequence.

In all cases, the chords can be played as a chord or arpeggio and the scale played back.
