Ratings and Reviews
Good but could use a few features
It's very easy to arrange songs and I love the recording capability to grab a quick idea before its gone. I would like to be able to easily add my own words or phrases directly to the note pad without creating a new note template. Also would be awesome to be able to use different fonts within one song. For example, as a metal musician I like to put harsh vocals (screams) in red or in bold and back up vocals in gray or italic to differentiate them from the rest of the lyrical content.
Buggy, needs work
Some features work, some don’t. For you to call it a “feature” it should work ALL the time, not just some of the time. When I click ‘Ideas’, then ‘Dictionary’, type a word in the search box and click ‘Enter’ on my ipad keyboard, it should pull up a definition EVERY time. Most of the time it just hangs and NEVER comes back.
FIX your app if you want any chance of selling more copies.
I unfortunately have already shelled out the money for the “PRO” version and NOW the iTunes store indicates that it is NOT installed. What a ripoff! Really?
Also, your chord feature? You might as well remove it, because it does NOT work! Focus on the lyrics! Don’t try to make your app everything to everyone. Be good at one thing and do it well.
I am an app developer myself and this should have never hit the store without being fully tested!
After an hour, I had written my first song with complete success! This app is great because it includes all the components that might be in any modern pop, country, or alternative song today. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to write a song, but there are wayyyyyyy to many ads.
