This is a great app. I think you should have a tool to give chord another color. and if it more beautiful. it will more great ^^

Entering songs is cumbersome as there is no formatting options, can't even use the tab key to jump several spaces. No bold, italic or underline. I can't even print and the UI is not very intuitive. I'm regretting spending $6.99 on this! The apps font and color scheme is hard on the eyes after a while and the over use of a script font is dated and not user friendly. I hope to see some major improvements soon. Would have liked a trial version. Giant script title prevents viewing of whole song!!!

Couldn't be happier with the app. Putting my music in it was simple and playing covers is made easy. Thanks again.
