Song-Writer Lite: Write Lyrics
Description
songwriter lite is a simple, yet powerful solution for songwriting on the go. Recording your ideas and writing your lyrics and chords has never been so convenient. (Now also available on Mac AppStore) Some features: ● Write your lyrics for each section of your song (ie. verse, chorus). ● Record audio for each section separately. ● Use the 'Chord Picker' to easily insert chords. ● Chords display above the lyrics when in display mode. ● Add guitar tablature. ● View Chord Diagrams - over 1000 chords included for guitar, bass, ukulele and banjo, plus you can add your own. ● Nashville Numbering System support. ● Search for rhymes or synonyms to help find inspiration. (Highlight the word you wish to find a rhyme/synonym for, only highlight the word with no space before or after the word, then touch Rhymes or Synonyms from the menu that appears.) ● Email your songs, with options to send PDF's, Songwriter Files, or MySongbook Files. ● Optional 'Passcode Lock' to protect your ideas from prying eyes. ● Backup/Restore powered by Dropbox. SUGGESTIONS If you have any suggestions of how Songwriter can be made even better, we would love to hear your ideas. Please visit www.simonsapps.com to get in touch.
I deleted them and then this is what happened

Second time writing this OK so I can’t even get to where we make the songs now😾
Needs to fix bugs
by emlouns on 2019/08/17 20:10
I LOVE the idea of this app, but it does not run properly. I just downloaded it with the intent of having an electronic way to keep track of all my songs. I put one song in, but it took two tries because the app froze and then deleted all my progress. I finished one song and started on another and the same thing happened this time deleting my completed song and the partially completed song. I’m so sad because this app has everything I would want to organize my music! Please fix the bugs and I would love this app so much!!! Please and thank you :)
Great idea but it won’t work
by Gus Loprz on 2019/08/12 02:40
It plain doesn’t want to write the chords on my iPhone. I tried and tried to use the chord assistant to no avail. I checked the help. It’s not useful without the feature.
Some issues
by Lutxo_1011 on 2019/08/03 00:19
When looking to move or delete sections of any song in the “Settings” icon, the application crashes. I hace to restart the application and stay eith sections I don’t want for my songs. In additi Is there any fix or update expected?, this app is not precissely intuitive but it has a fair enough features
Terrible
by sjjj456 on 2019/03/16 21:35
I just finished a song, the app kicked me out, and deleted all of my work except the first verse and a prechorus I never wrote. DO NOT RECOMMEND!!!
DropBox API needs updated
by LifeLongSongWriter on 2018/12/22 01:48
Converting from free to paid version does not provide a means to access your previous songs. The DropBox connection could work except that the API is trying to access the old, retired DropBox platform. Fix this and I may revise my rating
Great
by michle crattes on 2018/12/16 04:00
This app works perfectly I wrote my song and it plays there is no adds this is a five star app. All you have to do is type in the word in the song and you can edit in Beats and background music and You can even make songs with videos of you or the lyrics definitely get this app it’s the best 👍🏾
It’s okay
by MK smalls on 2018/11/14 23:06
I was excited to get the app. There was no adds or any of that but when I finished my first song it wouldn’t let me play it. I would suggest this app to someone who likes to makes songs and then DOESNT GET TO PLAY IT
Cool idea but doesn’t work
by Tperkins_09 on 2018/07/07 04:55
I write the first line and everything below is gone. Needs update
Do not purchase
by Just Say Hesss on 2018/04/16 14:36
Lost all of my songs! The owner has not updated this app in 6 mos and there is no support.
What is this?!
by dynomike! on 2018/01/14 07:56
I just downloaded the app and it looks nothing like the pics displayed here. It's a totally different, way more basic app... That I will never use.
JUST DON’T
by vastman44 on 2018/01/03 23:27
I liked the app. I bought the full version. The songs from this app do not move to the new app. It also does not back up to the cloud. So when I got a new phone, all of my songs were deleted.
I like this app
by Brother Phillip on 2017/10/02 04:06
I was using this songwriter app a lot Until I upgraded my iPhone. It needs to be upgraded OS 11 Unable to use it now . Please update ASAP.
Update please!
by Samdrummer on 2017/10/02 02:58
I’ve been using this app for over a year now and I really like the concept of being able to write lyrics and record in the same place. I have written many songs through this app, but recently I updated my IPhone, and I no longer can open the app! It says the app needs to be updated to work with new IPhone update. Please help, I can’t recover my songs unless you update the app!
Pretty great
by Kira.crystal on 2017/08/09 15:58
Everything good in the other reviews are true, but despite two of them I was able to find the full version, so I'm assuming they haven't rechecked and updates their reviews. As for song limits, I have no comment yet because I've only started a few songs. Would recommend so far👍🏼
Update
by seedyh2008 on 2017/07/28 03:15
Or lose me. !
Issues
by Ottsel13 on 2016/11/07 20:44
So the tuning this app uses is a full step down, which isn't noticeable unless you're using the capo option, and I'm also hearing of a song limit, that sounds pretty bogus as someone who has started working on (even if it's just a single line) nearly 200 songs.
Please read if confused
by SMG19721235 on 2016/10/24 02:11
I haven't tried this out yet but if you want the full version scroll up and you'll see IPad one'll tap on that and there should be a option that says iPhone only and the full version should show
Um. No.
by Hrjevdjdkdh on 2016/08/17 20:04
I just got this app after reading all the reviews and I regret my decision. I am 13 and this is really confusing. Do not get.
Worst ever
by Shclubs on 2016/07/17 03:35
I spent a month on a song and it deleted on its on and now I don't remember it all I remember was that it was a great song danm song writer
forgot pass
by Nigswar on 2016/04/16 02:01
I forgot my password. how do I get it back ? is there a password recovery or something..
More space
by Robertjo88 on 2016/03/08 23:09
I think it needs more space for songs
This app is the worst.
by shemurr.your.face on 2016/01/17 20:09
I wrote an amazing song on this app, I saved it and went to go record. When I opened it again there was nothing, the app erased my lyrics. I would give zero stars if possible.
Amazing
by Addystar101354 on 2015/10/25 17:40
Sing writer lite is awesome if your in to music one of your songs can make your dream come true thank you song writer lite 😀
Huh?
by vampirequeen031 on 2015/09/19 20:53
How the heck do you set up an email account to email your songs??? I don't even see an option for that.
Would be a five star butttttt
by sk8inup on 2015/08/06 02:57
There is no full version it seems. Every time I click on the upgrade link in the app itself it takes me too the App Store but then gives me a message saying the App Store is operational at the moment so I exit out and open the App Store (which by the way is completely operational) and I tryin search for the upgraded version and nothing just the lite version. Love the lite version but it only allows so many projects. Recommendations: Either fix the lite song writer app to where there's no limit or, make the upgraded version available Please I love this app I just need more project abilities. Thank you
Backup Crash!
by Chicaisred on 2015/05/31 22:51
I had and older version of the app and then I had to upgrade phones so I backed up my files to a Dropbox. When I tried to restore in my new device it just keeps on crashing. I would like if this was fixed because I have lost everything if it isn't.
Hidden fees
by Jassion123 on 2015/05/13 19:47
It doesn't say anywhere that songs cap out at 5 before you have to buy the $5 version. Rhymes feature doesn't work, highlighted 5 words individually to find rhymes and out of the huge list only a couple words rhymed I like the concept, but it needs work, also the desktop version would be nice if they synced together and if it also had rhymes UPDATE app hasn't been updated in almost 2 years, rhymes still don't work, app looks like it's for iOS 6 not iOS 8, needs refresh
Doesn't play back chords
by MobileArtist on 2015/03/07 16:14
This app would be so much better if the chords you add could be played back. They have an entire library of them, but you can't listen to them. If you're trying to write in a quiet place with headphones on, having a feature like that would make we want to buy the app.
Amazing but...
by Illamonstrosity on 2015/02/01 03:22
I love it! But the song limit is frustrating, I would get the full version so that I wouldn't have a limit but it isn't showing or allowing me to get the full version idk why; is there even a full version?? Id appreciate if you'd take off the limit
Song limit
by ajcastayaw on 2014/10/20 03:08
I loved it before they added a song limit. Now im busy transferring my 100 something songs to another app. Its free and still a waste of money...
THANK U
by Upcomer on 2014/08/03 02:23
I have always strugled writing a song and finally with this app i got to write a great song! I'm sooooo happy! MY FIRST SONG IS AWSOME! It's called GPSSII. It means Gotta Put Some Shake In It. THANK U!!!!!!
Writing songs
by NoseyRosr on 2014/06/19 08:03
This would be great if you could find your songs after writing / singing them. Good thing that I was just copying/ singing the song that I written a few years ago
Very Useful! Perfect! Fantastic!
by bd99bro on 2013/12/18 02:59
This app provides for the most originality of a writer. It has a very comfortable setup when you start a new song. Everything functions perfectly! However, I usually don't use the tab function, because it's rather difficult to use; I would recommend the developer to make it easier to handle at the fingertip. Other than that, it's very nice to have folders and the recording ability and the chord library, and so on. Great app, overall.
So far so good
by Always12bme on 2013/12/04 07:00
Well, I just downloaded this app. I am a singer/songwriter and sometimes have trouble caring a note-pad with me everywhere. I opened up the app and just kinda played around with it and so far I think it will be great! I haven't used it hardcore yet but when I do, I hope to love it :)
Awsome
by Karena444 on 2013/11/14 02:12
It's a good app for song writing I've been using it for a long time and its really helped me im not scared to try out for a lead role or a solo anymore and in music indistry I've been writing songs from my teach they way he taught us and this app has helped me so much with that
Not great
by Girlz2457 on 2013/10/09 03:11
Hahaha, no
Why
by Yoel3o5 on 2013/10/05 03:12
It's awesome but how do I listen to my whole song in one
Amazing for songwriters
by Rayman5908762849575253 on 2013/09/22 16:39
I personally think this is the best app for songwriting. I love it's features and how easy it is to navigate. The ads aren't annoying either unlike some that I've tried. I think it is amazing
real help!
by #1 Fantage Fan!!!!! on 2013/09/09 23:41
this app is helping me so much with my song writing thanks so much! ur awesome!
Really?!?!?!
by guitarman1208 on 2013/07/27 16:39
So I go to edit a line in one of my songs and I get a stupid message that my song limit has been reached and I will now have to purchase the full version if I want to add any more songs ( or Edit apparently). So I take a few out as they have already been made to hard copy or recorded. Still same MSG! Good news though. These clowns aren't the only game in town. Almost all the other song writing apps are more functional and receive better reviews.
It deletes my songs
by 111😠😠😡😡 on 2013/07/24 21:52
Horrible
Good and bad
by Assassin coner on 2013/07/01 17:09
I really like it but the full vision cost way to much I think but every thing else is good
it WAS perfect
by Love_em_all on 2013/06/21 17:53
I love this app so much until I got the update where there is a song limit. seriously?! I can't put any more songs on there because of it! I wouldn't suggest it if you want to have a lot of songs on there
Need to be able to sync
by I want to be able to edit on 2013/06/21 01:15
I love the app and am very impressed with the functionality, but it needs to have where you can sync between devices without having to export. Why would you not have it sync between devices???
It Was Perfect...
by GirlWithAProblem157 on 2013/06/20 15:22
Until they added the recent update. I had written probably forty songs on the app. And then the update happened. Now there's a song limit and all I'm really using the app for is looking at songs because I can't write anymore. Besides that, it's a great app. But if you prefer actually being able to write the amount you want, I don't recommend it.
Best version
by @adon on 2013/06/19 18:19
Don't upgrade to the full one until they bring it back to at least this point. The new paid version is highly upsetting and I paid for it since day one.
Love it
by Puffball#1 on 2013/06/12 17:01
This app really keeps me busy!
Great app and idea
by rodondoe on 2013/05/23 19:00
Working great. So long random bits of paper...
Umm... The x?
by Gammer Gal on 2013/05/07 01:45
I originally loved this app. It helped me express myself through music, and it still does, but the update isn't as secure as the last. The new update's style is nice, but it has an x in the corner when you enter your pass code that enters your songs without the passcode. I personally like to secretize my songs. But it's still really good!
This app is good ,BUT.........
by So maddddddd on 2013/04/09 22:53
I've used it to wright a couple songs but now for some reason it wont let me go into the song in my folders and if i click on the song, the app crashes and exits to my screen!!! Why Is this happening !!! I don't want to loose those songs ;( please tell me why
Horrible crap
by howandmeg on 2013/03/25 22:52
I went on, and had to pick notes for the GUITAR. It did not say about a guitar Crap this app!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Password
by Hayhay_32 on 2013/03/22 05:26
I made a password and the keyboard went away so I can't type in my password
Amazing
by S7IP on 2013/03/22 03:05
Get this app if you love making music. I made tons of songs on the app and plan to write many more. Get this app it's definitely worth it
Good app but customer service is grade D
by Ocean Studios on 2013/03/14 00:25
It's a good app...I've written & recorded 2 songs in pro tools that I wrote using this app as laying down parts of the song when I was away from my home studio. Customer service is not very attentive tho. Simon answered back once but didn't resolve my issue. You can't transfer songs from Songwriter lite to Songwriter so if you want use this I'd just purchase Songwriter so u don't have the problem of moving songs you've recorded into the lite version. 3 stars b/c customer service is horrible but app is very useful if you write lots of songs outside of your studio.
Song Writer
by Whittttneyybooo on 2013/03/05 05:09
This app is amazing! I love it! I can write a song and record it wherever I go. It's easy to use. This app lets you section off parts of the song you write and add capo. There is more too! If you are dedicated to music like myself and many others you will really love Song Writer so check it out!(:
Great!
by Nickname111111111111111 on 2013/02/28 19:51
Great app! Helps a lot considering I'm very forgetful and writing down the songs I make up is a huge help, and being able to insert chords is great!
Omg
by Omgomgomglololololol on 2013/02/27 03:01
Like omg I love this app I am 11 and live to sing no one hears me but now I can't lose my songs and I don't need a big notebook no more yaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!
Problem
by Stoneritter on 2013/02/25 17:19
I love this app! It helps me keep all my songs in one place that I always have with me but it froze up on the pass code page and the only way I could get into it was delete it and re-download and I lost all my songs!! Please fix this bug thanks
Totally amazing!
by Peace4em&ems on 2013/02/17 21:23
It is a great way 4 me to write down what ever tune or song hits my mind! A 10 year old girl ( me ) ya 10. But I really don't have much space up there 2 be remembering songs and finding rhymes in the category or style I have based on that particular sentence so this app is a really big help. GET IT!!!!!!
....
by AEvelynH on 2013/02/08 22:11
I love this app! it helps me release my feelings but no one else can see
When I works it's the best- now not working
by Drumb n Drumber on 2013/02/06 02:42
GET IT !! the BEST BY FAR- but think "writing on a napkin" cuz it just might freeze up all your work as its doing to me right now. I might have hot a When it is properly working THIS IS THE BEST SONGWRITING APP Around!!. Everything you need to organize and practice your craft. Transcribes the keys if using a capo, easy to read and adjust... Some of the more "whiny" or picky fellows may need other organizational options- make due you boy bands- every note pad I ever used had the same issue- whaa. The app is AWESOME- and FREE!!!
Perfect!
by Liajam on 2013/01/31 07:24
Just what I was looking for! I can easily jot down my songs and chords.
I love it
by magicmard on 2013/01/26 03:15
I think it is the best song writing app u can have. So I give it a A+
Awsome!
by Pianoapps on 2013/01/11 18:13
This is the best app in the world! Its so easy and organized!
Thank You App Creators!
by dangeruss420 on 2013/01/03 06:37
This app is great. It really helps me in pursuing my career. I had just begun to write all my songs down in a spiral notebook, and then I found this! All my songs were just on random papers! This really saved paper!
***EASILY THE BEST SONGWRITING APP***
by utopia1 on 2012/12/30 04:58
THIS IS AN AMAZING APP. I think it's crazy when people write reviews that are suggestions or when they haven't even really experienced the app for themselves. Use the app and then write a real review. Alright I'll get off my high horse and on to the business at hand. I didn't use this app for very long. Nope...it only took a few minutes for me to realize that I had to have the full app. It impressed me that much. It is a true songwriter's dream. This is the app I have been searching for as someone who has written in the neighborhood of 75 songs. All the pieces that a writer needs are there. Folders? Check. Song Sections? Check. Awesome rhyming dictionary? Check. The ability to rearrange Song Sections? Yep. The ability to record? Check. The ability to add chords? Check. Different ways to send a song? Yep. And yet they keep adding & improving. Now they have added transpose, Nashville Numbers, and even more thoughtful touches. Simple and intuitive? Absolutely!!! There are so many simple things as well. Like the song title formatted in bold. Like always starting the next line in CAPS. Simple details like this make great apps. If you want to save some time just skip this and buy the full version. As I said before "THIS IS A GREAT APP!" Try this one and YOU WILL BUY THE FULL VERSION. You won't regret it. Easily the best songwriting app in the App Store and I can't tell you how many writing apps I have tried. The search is over for me.
Wonderful
by Jazzielayne on 2012/12/26 17:30
This is a great app I love it it's so easy to use and I think it's great that you can put a password on it. It's a perfect app for songwriters or not.
🌟🌟🌟
by Jesselyn mary on 2012/12/17 07:42
Super useful! Only problem is you can't organize songs into folders, like advertised. LOVE LOVE LOVE everything else though.
Amazing
by Kashemir on 2012/12/10 02:46
I love it . I love it... It's amazing
Fantastic!
by thfump on 2012/11/26 02:11
Wow, this app is fantastic! This is a perfect case of why not to believe star ratings in the app store too strongly. This app does pretty much everything I wanted to do.Wow, this app is fantastic! The only other thing I wish it could do is transpose chords. Cheers to the designers.

Way cool - lots of nice features!
Kool!!!!!!!!!😄😃😘
by Hpaun1!/63! on 2012/11/11 01:06
I had a little problem at first then i figured out everything it is a cool game you should get it to so please get it. 😃
NICE!!! XD
by Join the RED Nation on 2012/11/10 18:27
This app's amazing! It's been nice having my songs locked so when people break in my iPod, they can't steal my music. It's also nice being able to have multipal folders so I can organize all of my projects and genres. The one thing I don't like about this app, is that it sometimes doesn't want to open. But it always eventually lets me in, even if I have to tap on it 30 times.
FANTASMIC
by JLSMPrince on 2012/11/08 14:13
it's so helpful! now i'm organized with all my songs and i actually know how they sound so it's easy to remember! can you fix the bug when i enter a password?
Awsome
by Ms.thunder on 2012/11/06 19:32
I really want to be a song writer when I'm older and this app really helps
Awesome
by 기도둥이 on 2012/11/03 07:59
I have tried lots of apps for songwriting before. None helped. But this, this free 'lite' Song Writer has had me smiling the whole time. And I'm not such a nice critic either-this is the first time I've given an app full stars. Also: the new updates awesome. Except my recordings don't work? Thanks for the great lite App! ;)
Great SongWriting App For Beginners
by TeeheeTaco on 2012/11/01 06:23
I've had this app for about 3 months now. Not yet have I run into any problems, it's great for beginners like me. I've looked at similar apps and compared them. This app was much more cleaner, and the extra settings (One of my favorites is Night Mode) really almost customize the app to not only make your songs seem more like yours, but the app itself too. Now, I do have an idea, that most likely won't happen, but customer input is always good. My idea would be a song sharing forum-like feature, where you can get advice from fellow songwriters on your songs. The forums would have categories based upon genre, and subcategories based upon mixed-genre songs (ex. Pop Rock, Power Pop, Speed Metal, Pop Country, etc.). Altogether, I personally do love this app. And encourage you developers possibly reading this (Who knows?), continue to make this app what it stands for, and refine it until you have satisfaction of a majority of the customers, it's what App Updates and Bug Fixes are kind of about. Well, I'm getting off topic. To sum it up, great app, I anticipate another update.
Adds
by Keepeace on 2012/10/31 03:05
Now that there this one video add playing my keyboard for my password to get into the app won't work plz fix
Great!
by Acpeace on 2012/10/28 15:51
I like this app! I do all my song writing and band planning in it. I especially like that you can record and save your songs on it while seeing the lyrics.
Straightforward and Clean
by The J-Bird on 2012/10/21 16:38
Haven't run into any problems so far. I just downloaded the app today, though. It's the cleanest and most straightforward songwriting app I've found yet. The chord insert feature is incredibly handy. I wish the rhyming dictionary and thesaurus could be viewed offline, though. Recording sections works well. It'd be nice to be able to trim the audio though so I could cut out the little bit of rustling around at the beginning of each recording, but I'm just a perfectionist. I also wish I could hide the toolbar at the bottom when in view mode. It's not too big of a deal, it'd just look a bit nicer and more minimalist. Overall, the app does what it says it does. Bravo! Maybe in the future, we can expect speech to text lyric writing? Ooh, or maybe a chord identifying feature using the built in mic?
Awesome
by Abbie Cress on 2012/08/29 17:22
I don't know what you guys are talking about! This app is amazing for writing songs! I love it. It's a must have.
NOT GOOD >:(
by TheDemigodN on 2012/08/21 18:35
Ok. This may be good for begeners but it ONLY LETS U PLAY CHORDS. If u want to do single notes, THEN DO NOT GET THIS APP
Super Awesome!!!
by Äłthëä on 2012/08/08 15:55
I really love this app! It's super useful. I only have a few songs on it but I'm also writing a story on it because it's so simple and easy to use! There is only one thing: I kind of wish there was a save button at the bottom because when I exit the app, I feel like it didn't save. But, as awesome as this app is, it always saves. Anyway, great app for songs and stories!!!!!!!!!!!!😜😜😜😜😜😁😁😁😁😁
I love this app
by happy :) :p on 2012/08/05 06:23
OMG!!!!! it's sooooooo good I LOVE IT no updates needed its completely perfect I want to marry this app! Did u know that marrying an app is illegal every where!? Haha jk I'm not that creepy but seriously nice app!
Best free songwriter app I've ever used
by Susan Klecan on 2012/08/03 02:10
Great app but has a tendency to freeze if you are on it for a long time.
Awesome

This app is Wonderful!!! Exactly what I needed for years.
Pass code
by E1219 on 2012/07/27 18:11
I got this app mainly because it had a passcode, but that stopped working, it no longer asks for my passcode!

JUNK
by SarahMacky on 2012/07/07 02:09
It wouldn't even let me play it. It is lousy and only has a few strings. It sounds AWFUL. It is a huge waste of time go get another app. Because this app is a peice of JUNK! DON'T GET IT. If I could rate it zero stars I would but you have to rate it at least one star. It's worth zero minus one hundred stars!!!! No that I am insulting the company! Im sure it's good but I havent bought any other products....don't get the pro or regular one of them said it had no license or something but don't get any of them it's trash and a total waste of time. Sorry! But I want to be nice so I guess it was a good try....
I have a suggestion
by 12435678790 on 2012/06/28 17:32
Can you add an option where we sing and it writes down the right cords and the words, that would be an awesome to put in this for beginning song writers!!! Other wise this app is totally worth buying I enjoy it but please add this function!!!!
Amazing App!!
by Playaco on 2012/06/26 02:05
I think this app is really amazing I always wanted to be a rapper and this app is really useful It helps me with writing a song
Love it so amazing
by Talya777 on 2012/06/20 01:46
Ok so I really love this app bcuz I can write down all of my songs and keep them organized b4 I had this app I was writing songs on paper and I could never keep track of them.

Awesome
by W. Axl Ro5e on 2012/06/13 01:55
This is my second favorite iPhone app absolutely amazing and if you could lower the cost of the paid version I'd probably buy it. I LOVE THIS APP!!!!!!
Doesn't work.
by JTron1979 on 2012/06/10 07:12
This might just be my "ancient" device, but this app does not function for me. In view mode nothing appears on the page, and there's no way to name a song as far as I can tell.
AWESOME
by Cc n Ben on 2012/05/28 23:12
I love this app! You should totally get it. If you need it even give you words that rhyme with other words or synonyms as inspiration!😃😃😃😃😃😃😃
Yes:)
by Slash329392 on 2012/05/22 02:03
If you forgot your pass code not the apps problem
Forgot my passcode
by Nicole slager on 2012/05/12 22:29
I liked this app a lot but I forgot my passcode and there is no stupid way to get on to the settings to change the passcode . And now I can't review the songs I wrote . PLEASE FIX !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Update please!
by Samdrummer on 2017/10/02 02:58
I’ve been using this app for over a year now and I really like the concept of being able to write lyrics and record in the same place. I have written many songs through this app, but recently I updated my IPhone, and I no longer can open the app! It says the app needs to be updated to work with new IPhone update. Please help, I can’t recover my songs unless you update the app!
Very Useful! Perfect! Fantastic!
by bd99bro on 2013/12/18 02:59
This app provides for the most originality of a writer. It has a very comfortable setup when you start a new song. Everything functions perfectly! However, I usually don't use the tab function, because it's rather difficult to use; I would recommend the developer to make it easier to handle at the fingertip. Other than that, it's very nice to have folders and the recording ability and the chord library, and so on. Great app, overall.
Needs to fix bugs
by emlouns on 2019/08/17 20:10
I LOVE the idea of this app, but it does not run properly. I just downloaded it with the intent of having an electronic way to keep track of all my songs. I put one song in, but it took two tries because the app froze and then deleted all my progress. I finished one song and started on another and the same thing happened this time deleting my completed song and the partially completed song. I’m so sad because this app has everything I would want to organize my music! Please fix the bugs and I would love this app so much!!! Please and thank you :)
Great
by michle crattes on 2018/12/16 04:00
This app works perfectly I wrote my song and it plays there is no adds this is a five star app. All you have to do is type in the word in the song and you can edit in Beats and background music and You can even make songs with videos of you or the lyrics definitely get this app it’s the best 👍🏾
Pretty great
by Kira.crystal on 2017/08/09 15:58
Everything good in the other reviews are true, but despite two of them I was able to find the full version, so I'm assuming they haven't rechecked and updates their reviews. As for song limits, I have no comment yet because I've only started a few songs. Would recommend so far👍🏼
Would be a five star butttttt
by sk8inup on 2015/08/06 02:57
There is no full version it seems. Every time I click on the upgrade link in the app itself it takes me too the App Store but then gives me a message saying the App Store is operational at the moment so I exit out and open the App Store (which by the way is completely operational) and I tryin search for the upgraded version and nothing just the lite version. Love the lite version but it only allows so many projects. Recommendations: Either fix the lite song writer app to where there's no limit or, make the upgraded version available Please I love this app I just need more project abilities. Thank you
Please read if confused
by SMG19721235 on 2016/10/24 02:11
I haven't tried this out yet but if you want the full version scroll up and you'll see IPad one'll tap on that and there should be a option that says iPhone only and the full version should show
Awsome
by Karena444 on 2013/11/14 02:12
It's a good app for song writing I've been using it for a long time and its really helped me im not scared to try out for a lead role or a solo anymore and in music indistry I've been writing songs from my teach they way he taught us and this app has helped me so much with that
Some issues
by Lutxo_1011 on 2019/08/03 00:19
When looking to move or delete sections of any song in the “Settings” icon, the application crashes. I hace to restart the application and stay eith sections I don’t want for my songs. In additi Is there any fix or update expected?, this app is not precissely intuitive but it has a fair enough features
Amazing but...
by Illamonstrosity on 2015/02/01 03:22
I love it! But the song limit is frustrating, I would get the full version so that I wouldn't have a limit but it isn't showing or allowing me to get the full version idk why; is there even a full version?? Id appreciate if you'd take off the limit
Issues
by Ottsel13 on 2016/11/07 20:44
So the tuning this app uses is a full step down, which isn't noticeable unless you're using the capo option, and I'm also hearing of a song limit, that sounds pretty bogus as someone who has started working on (even if it's just a single line) nearly 200 songs.
Amazing for songwriters
by Rayman5908762849575253 on 2013/09/22 16:39
I personally think this is the best app for songwriting. I love it's features and how easy it is to navigate. The ads aren't annoying either unlike some that I've tried. I think it is amazing
So far so good
by Always12bme on 2013/12/04 07:00
Well, I just downloaded this app. I am a singer/songwriter and sometimes have trouble caring a note-pad with me everywhere. I opened up the app and just kinda played around with it and so far I think it will be great! I haven't used it hardcore yet but when I do, I hope to love it :)
Doesn't play back chords
by MobileArtist on 2015/03/07 16:14
This app would be so much better if the chords you add could be played back. They have an entire library of them, but you can't listen to them. If you're trying to write in a quiet place with headphones on, having a feature like that would make we want to buy the app.
Writing songs
by NoseyRosr on 2014/06/19 08:03
This would be great if you could find your songs after writing / singing them. Good thing that I was just copying/ singing the song that I written a few years ago
Backup Crash!
by Chicaisred on 2015/05/31 22:51
I had and older version of the app and then I had to upgrade phones so I backed up my files to a Dropbox. When I tried to restore in my new device it just keeps on crashing. I would like if this was fixed because I have lost everything if it isn't.
DropBox API needs updated
by LifeLongSongWriter on 2018/12/22 01:48
Converting from free to paid version does not provide a means to access your previous songs. The DropBox connection could work except that the API is trying to access the old, retired DropBox platform. Fix this and I may revise my rating
Amazing
by Addystar101354 on 2015/10/25 17:40
Sing writer lite is awesome if your in to music one of your songs can make your dream come true thank you song writer lite 😀
It’s okay
by MK smalls on 2018/11/14 23:06
I was excited to get the app. There was no adds or any of that but when I finished my first song it wouldn’t let me play it. I would suggest this app to someone who likes to makes songs and then DOESNT GET TO PLAY IT
Huh?
by vampirequeen031 on 2015/09/19 20:53
How the heck do you set up an email account to email your songs??? I don't even see an option for that.
Hidden fees
by Jassion123 on 2015/05/13 19:47
It doesn't say anywhere that songs cap out at 5 before you have to buy the $5 version. Rhymes feature doesn't work, highlighted 5 words individually to find rhymes and out of the huge list only a couple words rhymed I like the concept, but it needs work, also the desktop version would be nice if they synced together and if it also had rhymes UPDATE app hasn't been updated in almost 2 years, rhymes still don't work, app looks like it's for iOS 6 not iOS 8, needs refresh
forgot pass
by Nigswar on 2016/04/16 02:01
I forgot my password. how do I get it back ? is there a password recovery or something..
I like this app
by Brother Phillip on 2017/10/02 04:06
I was using this songwriter app a lot Until I upgraded my iPhone. It needs to be upgraded OS 11 Unable to use it now . Please update ASAP.
THANK U
by Upcomer on 2014/08/03 02:23
I have always strugled writing a song and finally with this app i got to write a great song! I'm sooooo happy! MY FIRST SONG IS AWSOME! It's called GPSSII. It means Gotta Put Some Shake In It. THANK U!!!!!!
More space
by Robertjo88 on 2016/03/08 23:09
I think it needs more space for songs
Good app but customer service is grade D
by Ocean Studios on 2013/03/14 00:25
It's a good app...I've written & recorded 2 songs in pro tools that I wrote using this app as laying down parts of the song when I was away from my home studio. Customer service is not very attentive tho. Simon answered back once but didn't resolve my issue. You can't transfer songs from Songwriter lite to Songwriter so if you want use this I'd just purchase Songwriter so u don't have the problem of moving songs you've recorded into the lite version. 3 stars b/c customer service is horrible but app is very useful if you write lots of songs outside of your studio.
Why
by Yoel3o5 on 2013/10/05 03:12
It's awesome but how do I listen to my whole song in one
JUST DON’T
by vastman44 on 2018/01/03 23:27
I liked the app. I bought the full version. The songs from this app do not move to the new app. It also does not back up to the cloud. So when I got a new phone, all of my songs were deleted.
This app is the worst.
by shemurr.your.face on 2016/01/17 20:09
I wrote an amazing song on this app, I saved it and went to go record. When I opened it again there was nothing, the app erased my lyrics. I would give zero stars if possible.
Great idea but it won’t work
by Gus Loprz on 2019/08/12 02:40
It plain doesn’t want to write the chords on my iPhone. I tried and tried to use the chord assistant to no avail. I checked the help. It’s not useful without the feature.
Song limit
by ajcastayaw on 2014/10/20 03:08
I loved it before they added a song limit. Now im busy transferring my 100 something songs to another app. Its free and still a waste of money...
What is this?!
by dynomike! on 2018/01/14 07:56
I just downloaded the app and it looks nothing like the pics displayed here. It's a totally different, way more basic app... That I will never use.
I deleted them and then this is what happened
by 🦄s on 2019/08/29 19:11
Second time writing this OK so I can’t even get to where we make the songs now😾
Terrible
by sjjj456 on 2019/03/16 21:35
I just finished a song, the app kicked me out, and deleted all of my work except the first verse and a prechorus I never wrote. DO NOT RECOMMEND!!!
Cool idea but doesn’t work
by Tperkins_09 on 2018/07/07 04:55
I write the first line and everything below is gone. Needs update
Worst ever
by Shclubs on 2016/07/17 03:35
I spent a month on a song and it deleted on its on and now I don't remember it all I remember was that it was a great song danm song writer
Um. No.
by Hrjevdjdkdh on 2016/08/17 20:04
I just got this app after reading all the reviews and I regret my decision. I am 13 and this is really confusing. Do not get.
Do not purchase
by Just Say Hesss on 2018/04/16 14:36
Lost all of my songs! The owner has not updated this app in 6 mos and there is no support.
real help!
by #1 Fantage Fan!!!!! on 2013/09/09 23:41
this app is helping me so much with my song writing thanks so much! ur awesome!
Not great
by Girlz2457 on 2013/10/09 03:11
Hahaha, no
Great SongWriting App For Beginners
by TeeheeTaco on 2012/11/01 06:23
I've had this app for about 3 months now. Not yet have I run into any problems, it's great for beginners like me. I've looked at similar apps and compared them. This app was much more cleaner, and the extra settings (One of my favorites is Night Mode) really almost customize the app to not only make your songs seem more like yours, but the app itself too. Now, I do have an idea, that most likely won't happen, but customer input is always good. My idea would be a song sharing forum-like feature, where you can get advice from fellow songwriters on your songs. The forums would have categories based upon genre, and subcategories based upon mixed-genre songs (ex. Pop Rock, Power Pop, Speed Metal, Pop Country, etc.). Altogether, I personally do love this app. And encourage you developers possibly reading this (Who knows?), continue to make this app what it stands for, and refine it until you have satisfaction of a majority of the customers, it's what App Updates and Bug Fixes are kind of about. Well, I'm getting off topic. To sum it up, great app, I anticipate another update.
***EASILY THE BEST SONGWRITING APP***
by utopia1 on 2012/12/30 04:58
THIS IS AN AMAZING APP. I think it's crazy when people write reviews that are suggestions or when they haven't even really experienced the app for themselves. Use the app and then write a real review. Alright I'll get off my high horse and on to the business at hand. I didn't use this app for very long. Nope...it only took a few minutes for me to realize that I had to have the full app. It impressed me that much. It is a true songwriter's dream. This is the app I have been searching for as someone who has written in the neighborhood of 75 songs. All the pieces that a writer needs are there. Folders? Check. Song Sections? Check. Awesome rhyming dictionary? Check. The ability to rearrange Song Sections? Yep. The ability to record? Check. The ability to add chords? Check. Different ways to send a song? Yep. And yet they keep adding & improving. Now they have added transpose, Nashville Numbers, and even more thoughtful touches. Simple and intuitive? Absolutely!!! There are so many simple things as well. Like the song title formatted in bold. Like always starting the next line in CAPS. Simple details like this make great apps. If you want to save some time just skip this and buy the full version. As I said before "THIS IS A GREAT APP!" Try this one and YOU WILL BUY THE FULL VERSION. You won't regret it. Easily the best songwriting app in the App Store and I can't tell you how many writing apps I have tried. The search is over for me.
Straightforward and Clean
by The J-Bird on 2012/10/21 16:38
Haven't run into any problems so far. I just downloaded the app today, though. It's the cleanest and most straightforward songwriting app I've found yet. The chord insert feature is incredibly handy. I wish the rhyming dictionary and thesaurus could be viewed offline, though. Recording sections works well. It'd be nice to be able to trim the audio though so I could cut out the little bit of rustling around at the beginning of each recording, but I'm just a perfectionist. I also wish I could hide the toolbar at the bottom when in view mode. It's not too big of a deal, it'd just look a bit nicer and more minimalist. Overall, the app does what it says it does. Bravo! Maybe in the future, we can expect speech to text lyric writing? Ooh, or maybe a chord identifying feature using the built in mic?
True lead and background singer/songwriter
by Saphire punk singer/songwriter on 2011/07/27 05:31
I love it but can you make more space on the free version for more songs on the song list that would be cool! Also why not be able to look at your songs while you record them I've been writing and singing since I was four back then my songs were terrible I mean come on I was four my songs and my voice is professional since 8 to 14. I've been knowing the meaning behind lyrics since I was 7 years old! I put my everything into my music I relate to it and I have to feel the emotions when I sing it. I also wrote a song called Move Over I even have a band Wild Black Roses =D
When I works it's the best- now not working
by Drumb n Drumber on 2013/02/06 02:42
GET IT !! the BEST BY FAR- but think "writing on a napkin" cuz it just might freeze up all your work as its doing to me right now. I might have hot a When it is properly working THIS IS THE BEST SONGWRITING APP Around!!. Everything you need to organize and practice your craft. Transcribes the keys if using a capo, easy to read and adjust... Some of the more "whiny" or picky fellows may need other organizational options- make due you boy bands- every note pad I ever used had the same issue- whaa. The app is AWESOME- and FREE!!!
The price is right
by Hoopingloop on 2012/05/08 03:08
For a free app this is a great tool. Sometimes it's a little slow to respond with iPhone 4s but not a big deal. Song writing is all about capturing inspiration quickly and this does that. Also to grab those incomplete ideas and put them together a little at a time. The chord picker is great too. But the best thing is to record each part separate. It also shows you the lyrics for the part while you're recording it. Very cool. The adds don't bother me but if they do then buy it.
Super Awesome!!!
by Äłthëä on 2012/08/08 15:55
I really love this app! It's super useful. I only have a few songs on it but I'm also writing a story on it because it's so simple and easy to use! There is only one thing: I kind of wish there was a save button at the bottom because when I exit the app, I feel like it didn't save. But, as awesome as this app is, it always saves. Anyway, great app for songs and stories!!!!!!!!!!!!😜😜😜😜😜😁😁😁😁😁
Love it so amazing
by Talya777 on 2012/06/20 01:46
Ok so I really love this app bcuz I can write down all of my songs and keep them organized b4 I had this app I was writing songs on paper and I could never keep track of them. This app is also helpful cuz it gives u words that rhyme or suggestions. if u dont have this app get if you write songs or are a song artist of some sort it will really help you!!! <LOVE the world peace out bro> lol ;)
NICE!!! XD
by Join the RED Nation on 2012/11/10 18:27
This app's amazing! It's been nice having my songs locked so when people break in my iPod, they can't steal my music. It's also nice being able to have multipal folders so I can organize all of my projects and genres. The one thing I don't like about this app, is that it sometimes doesn't want to open. But it always eventually lets me in, even if I have to tap on it 30 times.
