... Always hesitate to update things because I'm a true American (skeptical). So I just got around to hitting update and thank goodness I did. The layout and chord sounds are so simple and easy to navigate on the app. The songs write themselves as they always do but now it's so much easier since I found this app; you guys at AutoChords kickass. It's a tease looking at the PRO titles, I'm sure to upgrade someday with what technology has done for opening doors, so eventually I'll check out the pricing. So hey, thanks! And if you all want me to rock any hats or shwag of yours I'll do at my 7-9 gigs a month you have made so much better to perform at. See you all at the top. #AdamUp #AdamUpMusic

I may not be totally using this app "correctly"... but it works for me. I started using it to show chord progressions I can practice. I can do it In every key for both major and minor... and # or b. For different progressions. You can practice without this app.... but is nice to have a tool to help you help learn transitions between chords. While maintaining a consistent strum of my choice. Very useful. This tool is probably not as fancy as some other things... but sometimes you don't want fancy. You want easy. Originally I thought I wanted this app to have fancier strumming... but now I don't. I like the once at each change... and remaining easy. Although it would nice to have an option to have it show all barre... versus easiest fingering. Or maybe have it let you choose entire alternative fingering for any chord.

I write music but don’t always have my guitar with me when inspiration strikes. I love the ability to save chord progressions and share them. I can arrange and better understand what I’m writing because it displays the chords and key. I can also sing along and match the chords. I instantly knew how I would use this. I just got it so I may not have seen these features but it would be great if the following was possible. -rearrange chords in the progression or record function and tap them individually and save it. - ability to add notes (text) for ideas such as lyrics or song structure. Either way it’s awesome. I paid for this and no one asked me to write this. It’s worth $5 for sure!! - t

This app is pretty good, it can help one get “unstuck” if their experiencing writers block or feeling uninspired. Pick a key, tempo, and mood/genre, and see if you like what you’re hearing. Don’t get too hung up on the names of the genres, it’s all subjective. It’s all easy to use, and I like that you can save your favorite progressions. My critiques are thus: - sharing a progression via messages doesn’t work- it just sends a graphic of an audio file but no audio file. - the guitar setting needs the chords to sustain longer, like the piano setting. - it would be cool if you could record a simple audio track in the app to jot down melodic ideas. - the alternate progressions within a genre change keys, and don’t quite fit with the previous one, so it won’t really generate a chorus to complement a verse, or whatever you’re using these chord progressions for. Otherwise it’s a good enough app to aid with songwriting. It’s kind of like GarageBand’s autochords in a stand-alone app.

This app shows you in the most simple way what Chords you can use in any given key. Major and minor, which I really dig. However, the chords are not complete and I feel a section with intermediate chords should be added. You wouldn't want to teach someone that the 5 chord in C maj was a straight G maj. And that the 7th chord is just a B...doesn't say maj or min, in fact it's a diminished. It's right in the last slider but in the progressions it's listed as a "Bb" and the fretboard shows a major chord...amirite? Looking forward to dev!
