Ratings and Reviews
More good than bad but missing some features
First the good. You can transpose to any key, which you can’t do with another sheet music app. Easy to buy new charts from the app.
The bad. In older versions you could also choose the steps you want to transpose to, not just the key. So if I needed it to jump a full octave, you could do that. Now you have to go to the website and do that which is a major pain.
Second, You can’t write notes, like from your iPAD pro and pencil. That’s huge. I make lots of notes on my music.
I got this app to get chords to play tunes on my guitar. Unfortunately, my very first $4 purchase of an obscure song turned out to inaccurate, and I was quite disappointed. The reason I am giving this app 5 stars is that the developer worked with me for an acceptable solution. I do not fault the developer that the only published copy of my tune was not the one that a favorite singer used. Clearly the singer made artistic changes. I look forward to finding more music through this app. Also, friends tell me they have been quite happy with it.

Decent app, but some bugs still...
There is a decent selection of songs for downloading, but I also wanted to use the app to organize the converted to PDF piano books I have had for years. I got a few songs to update the metadata properly, but once I try to fix the rest, they revert back to the PDF name with PDF for artist and PDF for arrangement. It is frustrating trying to re-input the information repeatedly only to have it not save.
I also wish there was a way to get to a specific page of a song quickly like for repeats and codas. For now I have to swipe repeatedly to get to the right page and this is time consuming.

We're sorry for any inconvenience in relation to this known bug regarding the re-naming of your own imported PDFs. This is something we're actively working on and hope to have a resolution for soon. Thanks -Sam
