Now with Apple Watch WatchOS 2 support! Listen the chords directly on your wrist. And as a bonus, you also get a tone generator and a full featured metronome for the Apple Watch!

Important notice: as the Watch App relies on resources that belong to WatchOS2, in order to have the app in your Apple Watch, you must update your watch os to WatchOS2.

With Chord Cheats you will have directly in your wrist the chord you are looking for, as well as in your phone.
Select the tonic and the function, and access to the desired chord from the 144 diagrams included with a single movement, and if you have an Apple Watch, with a few touches you will get the same diagram quickly.
Also get in the watch the string tones for tuning your guitar. And now, with WatchOS 2, you have a new fulll-featured metronome, with tempo and beat selection.

Love this app!

The only reason I didn't give it a full 5stars is because some of the audio examples are SEVERELY distorted when I try to play them. Other than that, I would recommend!

Very Dissapointing!!! Would rate lower if I could.

While the idea is pretty exciting, the reality is that the app falls short in every possible way. The chord sounds are polyphonic sounding and don't sound realistic enough to give you an accurate reference. The string tones volume on the watch are very faint and the sound is drowned out by just about anything else going on around you. The metronome, which I hoped would be the one saving grace, is a complete wash. As soon as your hand goes down or is moved in a way that could put the phone in sleep mode (like fretting while playing guitar), the metronome sound also goes into sleep mode and only returns when the watch is placed in a way that would normally allow the user to activate its functions. This app is completely disappointing. Avoid getting this and spend that dollar somewhere else.

Just what I needed!

Has all the chords I'd ever need, perfect for the Apple Watch. The only thing I'd ask for is the option to view different voicings. Great as is though.
