Figured it out - I originally gave a negative review because I (stupidly) couldn't figure out how to reorder the sections of my songs. I have since figured it out. A few suggestions from my work with it so far. I'd like to have the ability to click and drag sections of the song around from within the main writing window, without having to click on the section settings button. I'd also like to see the section that I have selected in settings be highlighted when I am about to drag it around. Thanks!

White Window - I just bought this ten dollar app, and all that comes up is a white window… It doesn't work.

Great app, but seems buggy - I’ve been using this app for a good half year or so and up until recently it’s been working fine for me. However, maybe it’s because they’ve not yet released an update in a while, especially now that Mavericks is out, but my app seems to be very buggy. Songs are unable to be selected half of the time, and when I *can* select them it’s hit or miss whether my text and chords appear or if I’m shown a blank page with nothing on a song I’ve spent many hours working on. I’m also curious about the new UI. The one shown in the images for the app on this page look amazing, I really love the wooden look and the design has a nice aesthetic to it. However, I tried redownloading just to confirm and yes, it seems like what’s pictured isn’t what you get; just a bland, white and blue theme with some basic drop down functions for organizing your songs. In short, it was a really good app for songwriters, and I feel like it could be again if the devs are able to get out a more recent update and maybe some more options for aesthetics (color, theme layout, etc.) Edit: After doing some digging I’m not even sure the devs are updating this anymore. I can’t find word of it on their website, and both the mobile and desktop versions of this haven’t been updated in months. Always disappointing to purchase something only to have the creators move on and leave you hanging :/

Not the right app for me - Missing a lot of great features. No Sync. No transpose. No importing sheet music. I use the ipad app also. It works better than this app. I don’t think it’s worth the money. I can acomplish the same thing with Microsoft Word in less time. Get Songhub.
