Update please!

I’ve been using this app for over a year now and I really like the concept of being able to write lyrics and record in the same place. I have written many songs through this app, but recently I updated my IPhone, and I no longer can open the app! It says the app needs to be updated to work with new IPhone update. Please help, I can’t recover my songs unless you update the app!

Very Useful! Perfect! Fantastic!

This app provides for the most originality of a writer. It has a very comfortable setup when you start a new song. Everything functions perfectly!
However, I usually don't use the tab function, because it's rather difficult to use; I would recommend the developer to make it easier to handle at the fingertip. Other than that, it's very nice to have folders and the recording ability and the chord library, and so on. Great app, overall.

Needs to fix bugs

I LOVE the idea of this app, but it does not run properly. I just downloaded it with the intent of having an electronic way to keep track of all my songs. I put one song in, but it took two tries because the app froze and then deleted all my progress. I finished one song and started on another and the same thing happened this time deleting my completed song and the partially completed song. I’m so sad because this app has everything I would want to organize my music! Please fix the bugs and I would love this app so much!!! Please and thank you :)
