Great for sync’ing

Here’s what this app does better than your $30 music score app - it syncs flawlessly. If you’ve got a collaborating group sharing a Dropbox folder, it’s great. Deleted songs get deleted - imagine that!

Here’s what it also does better than the $30 competitors - it re-scales and reformats text if you zoom real time. So your about to play a song and need it bigger, pinch and zoom and the lines re-wrap.

It also keeps it simple with the ChordPro markups.

The PDF handing is awful - the only reason why this app needs a companion app or PDF reader.

Great to have access to my songs on all my platforms

I have used most of the chord chart apps available in the App Store. I have been using Songbook Chordpro for several years and I always seem to gravitate back to it as my first choice. Because it uses the Songbook folder in Dropbox and is set to automatically update when I write something new or add a piece, my songs are the same whether I use it on iPhone, iPad, or my MacBook Pro. What other program can do that and do it so well. I’ll eventually get an Apple Watch and my songs will be available there. I appreciate a developer who takes the time and effort to make their app available everywhere. I no longer use Windows, but I could, and my songs would be available there. I got used to using the simple syntax of Chordpro to write out my songs and I don’t have to worry about my chords showing up over the wrong words like if I wrote them in Word. Those who whine and complain about this being too hard are not really thinking about how Chordpro creates more accurate leadsheets to share with others. And Songbook Chordpro creates great printed leadsheets for those needing a paper copy of my song. All in all, great job guys. I’m very happy to be a customer and look forward to continuing to use the software for my music for years to come.

This is a great app for working players. Once you get the hang of it you will find it very easy to use and work with. It has everything you need for chords and lyrics. I use it for gigs for that purpose. I don’t use charts so I can’t grade that part but for lyrics and chords it’s is awesome. Getting songs from the web could not be easier! I had some stored in Word and converted them via “note pad” on the PC. Others I got from Ultimate Guitar. Just get to the tune and import it in the program. Easy! I highly recommend this app for gigging players. You will love the ease of use .... and the support could not be better.
