Great to hear! Happy that we were able to provide something that was such a big help for your process :)
For an app that costs a slam dunk of $10 I was expecting something a bit more high fidelity and feature rich.
What you’re paying for is a chord library, the ability to hear a little bit of how those chords sound in order, a recording section, and a notes section. While its nice to have everything in one place, the features are barebones. The voice recorder is much worse than the voice memos that comes standard with all iPhones. It doesnt let you trim recordings, if the phone screen shuts off (which happens automatically over time) it stops recording which means you can only play for 30s at a time, and the notes section provides nothing but the ability to write text.
As a person who has been writing songs for a while on his phone using Notes (free), Voice Memos (free), and the chord library in the Ultimate Guitar App ($3) I would say this app is not worth the money right now. It has great potential but needs a lot of fixes and a lot more features to be worth using

Hi CaptiveAudience no. 69, thanks so much for the thoughtful insight on your review; it’s wonderful when we get constructive feedback from users so that we can work on improving this tool to be a powerful songwriting asset. I’m probably digging into business stuff a bit, but I would say the bulk of the cost for this version is centered around the access to the unique chord family libraries that allow for fast inspiration and give you the ability to both see the chords and hear them. This was a multi-year effort from the creator of our library to gather what he saw as playable chords that fit the chord family criteria for most songwriters. Outside of getting those libraries functioning in an app environment, we added the other pieces (progression builder, notes, and recordings) as they seemed to be the most immediately handy for this type of app where the goal is to capture ideas and not necessarily fully produce them in the way that something like GarageBand would…sort of a precursor if that make sense. That being said, we did have a limited budget to start with and built as much as we could in the areas that made sense at the time, but couldn’t do everything we wanted from the get go. We have tons of improvements, features, and overall experience upgrades being conceptualized and planned out for future versions that we born out of great feedback like yours as well as things we believe would be incredibly helpful in the songwriting journey. We’ll be working to build and release those as effectively as we can and hope that you enjoy the app as it grows over time!
I really like everything about this app—its an insanely easy way to write songs. But my one complaint is that once you pick a key for your song, it confines you to just the relative chords for that key. For example, I really want to do An Asus2 chord to a B major but I can’t cause the song is in D. Fix plz?

Hey there Music gut! Thanks so much for the feedback, it's helpful for us to know where any trouble spots are for users when they use our app so that we can make effective improvements. You'll be happy to hear that pulling in chords from the other keys is something we are currently working on and should be available with our next update :)
