    I’m a problem child.

    I love this app, it’s impressive. You get the idea from looking at the app that it’s one of the cream of the crop that Apple likes to show off, the kind where it’s almost a certainty the developer is filthy rich by now. 🙃👍 More power to them, this is great. I was expecting to be talked down to and hand-held through oversimplified menus, but this was very complete and full of useful things that anyone in their right mind would need a brief tutorial to cover. Unfortunately, it wasn’t all roses for me. Within the first 2-4 minutes, I: ① Tried to enter a chord with the piano onscreen. ② Looked for a “black as in black” background theme. ③ Tried to move the positioning of the chords by long pressing and dragging them around. ④ Looked for a cheat sheet of common (and hopefully uncommon!) chord progressions. ⑤ Asked the app if my current progression was musically sane. ⑥ Backed up my work safely to iCloud. What all of these features have in common, as far as I know, is that they don’t exist! 😅 I tend to be a nightmare for developers when I’m testing their software because I always immediately think of uses that aren’t there, so maybe it could just be me. But I’d certainly love to see these features in an update! I’m very pleased with the app, I just think it could be so much easier and more rapid to use. ❤️

    Thanx guys/gals for a great app

    I truly appreciate the concept and presentation you folks put together in this app. I find it to be very intuitive and useful for learning and for sparking my creativity in regards to chords /voicings and progressions. I would gladly pay along the way for new features/functionality as you work it in. A quick suggestion: The popular song section is a great idea. Maybe add a section for common song forms. Strophic, Verse/Bridge, Verse/Chorus, Verse/Chorus/Bridge, 12 bar blues etc.... With a example of a song using the corresponding form. Just my two cents. If there is anything I could do to help, let me know. Thanks again

    This is a fantastic learning tool. I only have 2 issues so far. 1 it crashes if I change to another app. Works great till i change apps. 2 please add the feature to keep the same root note when in the modes section. Shifting all the notes up to start on a different root really does nothing when trying to learn the modes. It’s a drag to have to move my root note back every time I change mode. 5 stars as soon as you change the issue with the modes root note!
