Needs work on key features
I like this app because unlike MasterWriter, you can sink in the cloud, allowing me to work with iPad or my MacBook. The problem is the tools. The logic in the rhyming dictionary is so inconsistent, often times just wrong. I haven’t tried the recording options so I can’t comment of those features. The rhyming phrases features need a lot of improvement to earn anymore stars from me. I hope the developer improves the app.
Helpful, but overpriced and not optimized for serious songwriters IMO
I use this app all the time for songwriting, along with two other iPad apps (StudioTrack and SixString) and a paper notebook. I take down initial ideas on paper, then use StudioTrack and Songwriter's Pad to flesh out the song until I have a preliminary demo which I record on StudioTrack.
The most important feature is the ability to compose, copy and rearrange lyrics by section. It's a simple feature set, but it has really changed the way I write for the better. Breaking the song down into "movable" typed sections gives me the chance to play through different arrangements quickly and get a better sense of how the song flows. For me, this was worth $10, but it's not the ultimate songwriter's app by any stretch.
However, the phrase generator is gimmicky and probably most useful for writing parody songs about the Songwriter's Pad app. Please, let me get this stuff off the screen. The rhyming dictionary needs a massive upgrade to be useful. Twitch Massacre and Redbushy's criticisms are on the money.
WILL THE BUGS EVER BE FIXED? I’ve had this for years now and there are text problems, copy and paste problems, font problems....it’s like buying a car with no tires and no engine!
I wrote an earlier review thinking this was going to be really good but it's not that great. Very buggy - cut copy and paste doesn't work properly with a line or a paragraph. Rhyming dictionary is awful. Try to rhyme "hate" and get a word like "choose."
THE ONE THING it's fairly good for is having a finished set of lyrics to email to yourself with a uniform font and date. Except, the fonts are messed up and when I email it to myself, apostrophes change to hieroglyphics.
These days I start with paper and pen, and when I almost have the finished song, I use this app to get a clean copy.
I am going to switch to Apple’s “Notes” app instead of this piece of trash.
