Ratings and Reviews
This app is everything that I want in songwriting software. The lyrics section has an option to place verse chorus bridge etc. this for me serves as a reminder to write the sections of my song.
Then I can share my sessions between my iPhone and iPad using airdrop. It has a recorder which is great and an option to upload lyrics from other sources. And even a section for ideas so you can grab those and add those to your songs. Overall I recommend this app highly.
Reviewed the app before purchase.
Great design, the Developer is pro-active and keeping up with user request. For 3.99 no one should complain, it’s got the tools for Song Writers and it takes time and effort to keep up with updates which seems fairly frequent. For now it’s worth the 5 stars.
Just got the app since NOBODY wants to update SONGWRITER HD..
Now, first I think it's a bit tedious that you have to name a song and fill out the song information before you even jot down a lyric or sing a few notes. To me that takes away from the natural quick inspiration of your music making ideas. It should be changed to a lyric pad first with a mic icon to record as soon as u hit the + sign.
All that being said, if this was reversed it might make me wanna buy the upgrade and there for changing my rating, with the hope that the developers stay committed to this app and have a simple passcode lock in a near future update.
Developer Response ,
Writers Session now supports the quick entry of both lyrics and audio recordings without filling out any song information. These ideas can at a later point be transferred to a song session giving you the best of both worlds. The app also has support for organising sessions into folders.
