Ads make you get out of app to disappear. Too many as well. Good idea, bad execution so far
Crashing and glitching
I have had this app for a very long time and have used it to write countless songs, and I appreciate that. At the end of the day I felt is was time to write a review in hopes developers would hear the issues that have not been addressed naturally, as I figured they would have been. The crashing... NEEDS to be fixed. I cannot tell you how many Lines and recordings I have lost from a crash. It really blows because I can put something great down and then boom, gone. It’s been a problem for years, over several ios and several devices, fix it. Also, the ordering of projects is stupid. When I work on one it should not bounce to a random order when I try to go find it again. When I click to organize by date, it doesn’t, and organizing by name is kind of inconvenient.
I would also suggest better recording features to make this app the best available songwriting app. Should be some minor things and then I would rate 5 stars.
Crashes; Save heartache
I was so close to getting the full version of this app. It has many theoretically useful features but one fatal flaw. For me, it crashes anytime I tried to switch windows. If you’re like me and like to do research in a browser while writing songs, this is a deal breaker. I only lost a few minutes of work but that was enough for me to want to warn other writers. Save your money and save the heartache from lost work!
