Just the app I need for songwriting!!!

As a maker of computerized music - what I need is an instrument that I can use to play around strumming different chords till I get just what I need for my next song. And given the minimal space and paper-thin walls of my apartment, an app for the purpose is often far more convenient than having to break out a physical guitar for the purpose. This app does what I need better than anything I have ever found!!! — I notice that the app has not been updated in years. I hope that this is because the developer has an “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” attitude, which is definitely a plausible explanation given how well the app does what it is meant for. I wish, though, that there was a way that I could be _assured_ that this is the reason for a lack of updates in recent years. — This app will not teach you how to play guitar. But who cares!! There are other apps for that - and this app does not _claim_ to do that!!! This app is a chord test-board for song-writers!! That is what it claims to be for — and for that purpose it is the best I have found so far!! (And pretty good at it.)

The best guitar app I've found so far

I hope the developer will continue to support and develop this app. It has the best selection of chords, is easiest to play, has midi out, pretty great. I would prefer that all of the features were in one screen (maybe tabs instead of entering and exit gin screens), but so far, that's a small complaint for the quality provided.

I am so impressed. This is one of the best purchases I have made. So fun and so easy to use to make really really good music. Buy this!
