Description
Piano companion is a music theory app which helps songwriters, producers, teachers and their students. It’s a flexible piano chords and scales dictionary with user libraries, reverse mode, the circle of 5ths, chord progression builder with common patterns. If you can’t remember the name of a piano chord or scale, this app helps you to find it by keys or using your external MIDI keyboard. For example, just press C, G and you will get C Major as the first piano chord in the search result. If you don’t see a piano chord or a specific scale, you can create a custom piano chord or scale and use it for chord charts or your user library. The Piano companion app shows chord and scale notes on the grand staff, degrees, relative scales, intervals, fingering for both hands in major and minor scales – and you can contribute your own custom fingering too. You can practice scales in different keys and clefs, practice progressions. Additionally, you can listen to how a scale or chord sounds in the loop or arpeggiated. You can see the list of compatible chords in the selected scale or list of compatible scales for a selected chord. The app helps you to compose, practice progressions and experiment with different chord progressions using our Chord progression Builder with relative or common chords. Key features: - 1500+ piano chords, up to 6th inversions such as major, minor, diminished, augmented, sevenths, etc. - 10,000+ scales, such as Ionian (major), Aeolian (minor), Dorian, Phrygian, Lydian, Mixolydian, Locrian, Harmonic minor, Melodic Minor, chromatic, pentatonic, blues, etc. - Chord progression builder with scale patterns (chord sequencer) - Interactive Circle of Fifths with grand staff and relative scales - Ability to input your own custom chords and organize your own chord charts and library - External MIDI keyboard support for reverse mode - MIDI output (iOS) with the ability to connect your favorite DAW (Ableton, Garage Band, etc.) with Piano companion - List of available chords in Circle of Fifths, practice common chords. - Popular key notations: English, Italian, German, Japanese, Russian, etc. - Shows chord and scale in different octaves on the grand staff with treble and bass clef - Displays compatible scaleschords - Displays similar and relative scales - Analytical labels: Secondary Dominant and Secondary Leading-Tone - Common degrees: Tonic, Supertonic, Mediant, Subdominant, Dominant, Submediant, Leading tone (in Major scale) / Subtonic (in Natural Minor Scale) - Displays compatible chordsscales - Ability to create custom chords or modify existing ones - Audio support: the ability to play a chord in the loop or arpeggio; ability to play a scale in the loop - Arpeggio in the chord progressions - Relative scale suggestions - Relative chords in chord progressions - You can create your own scale fingering and have the ability to use community scale fingerings - User libraries with the ability to add scale or chord - You can create your own chord libraries and chord charts - Ability to create favorite scales - Chord Intervals: Unison, Perfect Fifth, Major Third, Minor Third, etc. Prompt support from the Piano companion Team is guaranteed!

I use it all the time for music!!! It has EVERYTHING YOU NEED!!!
Great app
by Makinganametorateappswith on 2020/02/18 18:46
Thank you for the great work and awesome customer service.
Reserve the right to update
by Vector02-2017 on 2019/11/02 16:45
So far so go. No complaints only had the app for a few days now... actually learned a few things about music in just a few minutes using it... reserving the right to update after some more time passes
Works well!
by Tpkyt on 2019/10/06 20:44
Just note that what they removed was a bug. The chord content is there but just not in reverse look-up. I still recommend app for those studying chords!
Much better than before
by Darkshard10 on 2019/10/03 14:09
Thanks for updating the app. After hiding the enharmonic keys it seems much easier to find keys/signatures/scales I’m used to seeing. For example I’m used to seeing B Major instead of Cb Major. Again thank you. And I hope the app can improve even further.
A Great Chord Resource
by JeffRumpole on 2019/08/03 12:42
This app so such a great resource and is fun to play around with. It’s also an excellent learning tool. Most importantly, the developer reads comments and updates the app to address concerns.
The only app I’ve bought more than once
by fluffyfoxfriend on 2018/10/03 16:04
First on a new Google account, then when I switched to iOS. It’s exactly what I need in a reference when making music. What is there to say? You don’t need anything else.
Best of the best
by West Coast Architect on 2018/08/07 01:16
This is my go to app for everything related to scales and chords. Additionally it has the best and most useful circle of fifths of any other app. Included is every possible musical scale under the sun, but it is also nice that you can create a folder of just your own favorite scales. It also shows common fingering for scales and you can create your own custom fingering.
Best music reference
by tipofyourstar on 2017/11/21 00:06
I’ve tried a lot of music theory references, this is the best hands down and worth the purchase. I genuinely would be lost without it.
Great App
by Business Up on 2017/07/31 19:04
It should adapt some features from songtive like the building of melodies and arp without all the crappy songtive features like having to mingle with other people and all that jazz. But i like Piano it's awesome. Keep up the good work and thanks for improving on the app little by little.
Growth
by DVS387 on 2017/06/18 01:40
This app has definitely helped my growth as well as given me easy solutions in tough spots. Thank you!
This has been a real great teaching tool
by ThePhiloSurfer on 2017/03/24 17:14
I use this app nearly every time I sit down and produce music. Reverse lookup is by far the best feature. Highly recommend for all musicians and producers.
It works great, and I love it! But..
by tony behr on 2017/03/16 22:27
Could use a different background color option to the UI, maybe a night mode, cause it's not easy on my eyes. And more chord progression options, like premade chord progressions. Other than that this is easily the best theory app out there. And I love the reverse chord and reverse scale lookup option.
Great tool
by dwrightone on 2017/03/15 11:04
Great quick reference
Very nice
by Lent roller on 2016/12/17 21:44
Worth the upgrade
Excellent!
by RCRJr on 2016/11/24 13:49
I am an experienced musician of almost 40 years. I also have seen (and presently own) some of the best music reference apps on the market. In the first release of this app, it is already one of the very best. It easily replaces three of the best piano reference apps I own. A terrific and well-thought-out resource. My only problem: there's little room for improvement. In a word, excellent. Still trying to grasp all the information contained in this app. If you're serious about music, there's a lot of necessary info here.
A must have.
by RingoOu on 2016/11/18 20:33
Absolutely amazing. Very great and dedicated dev team behind this app, that keeps on updating and improving it regularly.
Excellent!!!
by EternalBlessings on 2016/10/27 00:06
Heaven Sent...Simply put! Thank You
Great secondary companion
by Bro Bryant on 2016/10/21 01:10
Although I should be able to remember all the natural skills for their keys this is a great help whenever I just simply can't pull it up as fast as I need to. It has help me begin to craft songs as well as give me new ideas when it comes to melodies and even harmonies. If you are interested in practice or just memory games this is a awesome app and one. It is even better on the iPad because you can play the keyboard on the road.
Love it
by doogales on 2016/06/16 23:50
This is a very useful app worth it!
Amazing resource!
by Budbud00 on 2016/06/06 13:45
Great resource for scales and chords. I use this a lot, to be honest!! Would totally recommend to any serious pianist.
A lovely, easy to use tool!
by c-p_ on 2016/05/22 20:39
I largely use this as a dictionary- being a professional in the audio industry but not a classically trained musician this app has saved me a lot of time. It's simple, the interface is pretty clean (much better since the last update) and it contains a wide breadth of information. Worth every penny.
Excellent
by dMinor17 on 2016/05/08 19:08
Great useful app
Useful but confusing
by srahfox on 2016/03/18 22:50
I really like this app but sometime I find it confusing. Some of that is because there are often several ways to notate a chord and the app doesn't have them all. I do wish it was somewhat more obvious which of the dozen chords they show is clearly yours. So is say for a beginner it may be confusing, but is still a very useful tool.
Great for ALL musician!!
by ggarci on 2016/01/06 03:34
This is awesome! Lots of musical information in the palm of your hand. Great for beginners to advance musicians! Great for everybody! It is well organized and user friendly. Awesome interactive piano that help you hear the chords and arpeggios. : )
I use it everyday
by sat6002 on 2015/12/18 07:12
Everyday I'm at keyboard I do reach out for the iPad to use this app
Must have App for any music Producers
by Alexander Cotten on 2015/12/12 16:21
This app is the one stop shop for all your chord/scale needs.

Stop thinking about it and just get this app already. You will use it.
Really useful

Sweet app dude, been looking for something rad like this here
Amazing.
by Djsqueely on 2015/08/25 20:25
This app is amazing if you are learning scales and chords. It would be nice to have better jazz names and voicings though. It's impossible to make an E7alt. However, the chord lookup function has always made up for this when trying to find chord scales.
Regretting my purchase
by Anya1984 on 2015/06/30 05:23
I had high hopes for this app, but unfortunately I am regretting my purchase. Like the review titled, 'first impressions', I tried the free version first, but decided to get the app for full functionality. Now I wish I hadn't because it really isn't that helpful, easy to use, or intuitive. I agree with everything written in the 'first impressions' review. The app leads you to believe that you are choosing a root other than C but in actuality, the root chord is always C. Chord progressions are predetermined with some standard selections, but if you wish to choose something other than what is preselected, it is not possible to, for example, choose Ab7 while you have Db as the root chord. There is also no help menu to help you along. I would return this if possible, and can only hope the developers will improve on this.
Incredible!
by KOwens18 on 2015/06/25 05:15
I learned more in one night about playing chords on a piano than I have with anything else I've ever tried to use. I play guitar and needed to figure out some basic stuff for a back track. By far, exceeded my hopes and did it quickly. Thanks!
first impressions
by Human Brain on 2015/06/19 20:32
I downloaded the “lite” version of this app and it was pretty useless so I decided to try the “pro” version of the app. After an hour of trying to use this I find it to be buggy. The reverse chord lookup doesn’t tell you what chord you played it just lists those that are “near” what you played. The root note won’t change and when I change it it just goes back to “C”. Want an Ab chord in the progression tool ? no you can’t select that and even if you do find a way to change it, it reverts to something else when you go back to the progression screen. I think a progression tool should be, pick the chords I want and the duration, tempo and bam ! there it is. Not with this app. Nice idea but so far a big waste of time.
Great app!
by kewlblu on 2015/06/05 12:48
Love this app! Very useful. I especially like the user library where I can store the chords for each song I'm learning without having to look them up again. Thanks much!
Excellent!!!
by JFender7 on 2015/04/27 00:55
This is a great app for piano players.

by KnowNaMe on 2015/04/08 01:36

Amazing

Complete.
Powerful Learning tool
by theofficialgræ on 2014/12/15 18:05
This is the most powerful piano learning app I've seen yet. The only thing missing is a way to actually record song ideas. But this is BY FAR the most complex detailed piano app I've ever used. Great buy !
Chord Progression
by Nesredep Dyson on 2014/11/27 06:24
Could you please fix (or add) the ability to move chords around in Chord Progression interface? At this point you can only delete but cannot switch the chords from place to place. Thank you!
Best Music app for beginners.
by Delonté Greenwell on 2014/11/23 15:03
Helps with all your scales in every key along with all the chords that correspond with it. It's very comprehensive and is easy to use and it even has a neat chord progression feature. I recommend it for piano players of all skill levels because it packs powerful music information that could assist anyone, and for 3.99 you can't go wrong.
Outstanding!
by Drummerkat on 2014/11/16 21:27
This app has everything you need to learn basic to complex chords, scales, circle of 5ths, and so much more. The chord dictionary is huge and each chord can be played. There is also a large scale dictionary. Very satisfied. Now I just need time to practice...
Súper

Great
by Evan Maaan on 2014/10/27 13:48
All in all this app rocks. I can make chord progressions and export them to midi, i have access to a ton of chords, and it's really helping me learn. One thing I think could improve is the navigation between menus is a bit cumbersome. Fix that and it'd be perfect.
Better
by Colin Tan on 2014/10/21 18:39
Even better with iPhone 6 support! If the dev could shorten the app name so that it looks good on iPhone home screen it would be perfect!
Won't even load on iPad! Better not charge me!

What a wonderful App!!!

Amazing app, I love it so much!
Awesome - my Swiss Army knife for harmony!
by Yggiz on 2014/07/10 04:24
This has proved to be a very useful app, especially for learning chords and harmonic principles. I am not a piano player, but that doesn&#39;t prevent me from getting a lot out of this app. It saves me lots of time because all the info on chords, scales, and harmony I need is at my fingertips. Makes learning so much faster!
Love it!
by KylieM. on 2014/07/08 04:36
I&#39;ve seen other apps like Piano Companion, but never with everything in one place like this! Really convenient and helpful, especially as a college student studying music.
Good
by Selfrob on 2014/07/06 17:35
This has been a helpful app. Thanks!
So helpful
by For Sure Fo Sho on 2014/06/15 15:08
Put in 4 notes I liked. Gave me over 40 scales relating. Found one I liked for my song. Simple. That alone is worth the change for this app. Thank u.
Very nice app
by Robert55432 on 2014/06/09 14:16
Great tool to have around. I wish there was a way to turn off the auto-scroll to the top of the sequence in chord progression mode when playing manually.
Amazing
by Studious2011 on 2014/05/03 15:22
Trying to learn the piano (novice), this made me realize that to be proficient maybe simple, but to now see the complexity of the cords--it is a lifetime of learning and loving the instrument you chose! Super great help aid for the novice to the master.
Everything you need to know about scales, chords, music theory.
by Kingpin_lb on 2014/05/03 07:48
Reverse lookup is something I haven&#39;t seen in previous apps! Well developed and highly informative. Recommended to beginners all the way to pros and producers.
Fantastic
by Tetchy lady on 2014/05/03 05:53
I am a private music teacher. I have been searching for an app like this. One of my students actually found it and shared it with me. I love it. It has everything I want in scales and chords and accompaniment patterns.
Made my shed sessions a breeze!!
by Timstrel on 2014/05/02 14:53
I&#39;m a full time musician and I run multiple groups and rehearsals. This tool made my writing sessions, rehearsals and shedding on tunes a breeze as well as my private teaching. It speaks my language and simplifies my life. Thanks!!
It's all there
by Franky Panic on 2014/05/02 05:50
A useful tool. I haven&#39;t explored it all but based on what I&#39;ve seen so far using the cycle of 5ths, it gets all my stars🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
INCREDIBLE
by NoseFinger on 2014/05/02 04:11
Outstanding reference. Love the scales. Easy to use interface. Guitar and bass versions would be cool, too!
Fantastic app for musicians and music lovers!
by Institian on 2014/05/02 01:54
More info than could ever be needed by any one person, but enough to help anyone grow and get better in their craft.

Email midi progressions, great for getting ideas out and improves workflow for any musician.
Great App to use with Fake Books
by cnsoj on 2013/11/24 14:57
I&#39;ve been looking for an app that gives chords in all inversions, and this meets my needs perfectly. This app has a very wide range of chords and shows a diagram of the chord and lists the notes. I find that it works well with fake books, and I&#39;m also using it with ear training. It is the best app I found for this so far.
Interface
by Dominique Stassen on 2013/11/23 03:57
Really good app that comes in very handy as a chord database when playing. Please make the interface better looking, but most importantly make it user friendly. That is the only thing keeping me from giving this 5stars
The music app I've been waiting for
by Darren C on 2013/11/16 18:05

This Is Hidden Treasure
by SXxO on 2013/10/08 23:31
I was skeptical due to the $3 filler price and no reviews. I decided to take the chance. I&#39;ve purchased many apps to educate myself with understanding music. This is it. The one you&#39;ll always need at a glance. Just the chord material is worth the $3. All the extras was a complete surprise. It&#39;s golden!!!
Great resource

Must have for musicians!
My new favorite app!
by Amstene on 2013/09/22 02:39
I&#39;m transitioning from reading sheet music to working off chord sheets, so I need to use inversions quite a bit. On top of giving you hundreds of scales and chords, you can build chord progressions, make inversions, add timing, play them back and even save, load and send. Take the time to learn all the features. I almost gave up on it because I didn&#39;t know how to use the progression feature. Now I can&#39;t get enough!
Amazing for Newbees
by LTZ_Cruze on 2013/09/22 02:15
In my 4th week of piano 1. This has really helped me understand the basics of cords. Thank you! Cruze11

I like being able to click on scales, chords and circle of fifths and hear them play. Intuitive interface. Responsive and friendly support. This is one of my &#39;go to&#39; music theory apps.
Superb!
by Nkhan909 on 2013/09/13 16:43
A very nice handy tool at your fingertips to look up scales, chords,etc. I wish there was a way to mark certain chords or scales as favorite. Superb job by developer on look n feel.

by $&&))& on 2020/03/06 01:02
I use it all the time for music!!! It has EVERYTHING YOU NEED!!!
Excellent!
by RCRJr on 2016/11/24 13:49
I am an experienced musician of almost 40 years. I also have seen (and presently own) some of the best music reference apps on the market. In the first release of this app, it is already one of the very best. It easily replaces three of the best piano reference apps I own. A terrific and well-thought-out resource. My only problem: there&#39;s little room for improvement. In a word, excellent. Still trying to grasp all the information contained in this app. If you&#39;re serious about music, there&#39;s a lot of necessary info here.
Regretting my purchase
by Anya1984 on 2015/06/30 05:23
I had high hopes for this app, but unfortunately I am regretting my purchase. Like the review titled, &#39;first impressions&#39;, I tried the free version first, but decided to get the app for full functionality. Now I wish I hadn&#39;t because it really isn&#39;t that helpful, easy to use, or intuitive. I agree with everything written in the &#39;first impressions&#39; review. The app leads you to believe that you are choosing a root other than C but in actuality, the root chord is always C. Chord progressions are predetermined with some standard selections, but if you wish to choose something other than what is preselected, it is not possible to, for example, choose Ab7 while you have Db as the root chord. There is also no help menu to help you along. I would return this if possible, and can only hope the developers will improve on this.
first impressions
by Human Brain on 2015/06/19 20:32
I downloaded the “lite” version of this app and it was pretty useless so I decided to try the “pro” version of the app. After an hour of trying to use this I find it to be buggy. The reverse chord lookup doesn’t tell you what chord you played it just lists those that are “near” what you played. The root note won’t change and when I change it it just goes back to “C”. Want an Ab chord in the progression tool ? no you can’t select that and even if you do find a way to change it, it reverts to something else when you go back to the progression screen. I think a progression tool should be, pick the chords I want and the duration, tempo and bam ! there it is. Not with this app. Nice idea but so far a big waste of time.
Great secondary companion
by Bro Bryant on 2016/10/21 01:10
Although I should be able to remember all the natural skills for their keys this is a great help whenever I just simply can&#39;t pull it up as fast as I need to. It has help me begin to craft songs as well as give me new ideas when it comes to melodies and even harmonies. If you are interested in practice or just memory games this is a awesome app and one. It is even better on the iPad because you can play the keyboard on the road.
My new favorite app!
by Amstene on 2013/09/22 02:39
I&#39;m transitioning from reading sheet music to working off chord sheets, so I need to use inversions quite a bit. On top of giving you hundreds of scales and chords, you can build chord progressions, make inversions, add timing, play them back and even save, load and send. Take the time to learn all the features. I almost gave up on it because I didn&#39;t know how to use the progression feature. Now I can&#39;t get enough!
Best Music app for beginners.
by Delonté Greenwell on 2014/11/23 15:03
Helps with all your scales in every key along with all the chords that correspond with it. It&#39;s very comprehensive and is easy to use and it even has a neat chord progression feature. I recommend it for piano players of all skill levels because it packs powerful music information that could assist anyone, and for 3.99 you can&#39;t go wrong.
Great App to use with Fake Books
by cnsoj on 2013/11/24 14:57
I&#39;ve been looking for an app that gives chords in all inversions, and this meets my needs perfectly. This app has a very wide range of chords and shows a diagram of the chord and lists the notes. I find that it works well with fake books, and I&#39;m also using it with ear training. It is the best app I found for this so far.
A lovely, easy to use tool!
by c-p_ on 2016/05/22 20:39
I largely use this as a dictionary- being a professional in the audio industry but not a classically trained musician this app has saved me a lot of time. It&#39;s simple, the interface is pretty clean (much better since the last update) and it contains a wide breadth of information. Worth every penny.
Awesome - my Swiss Army knife for harmony!
by Yggiz on 2014/07/10 04:24
This has proved to be a very useful app, especially for learning chords and harmonic principles. I am not a piano player, but that doesn&#39;t prevent me from getting a lot out of this app. It saves me lots of time because all the info on chords, scales, and harmony I need is at my fingertips. Makes learning so much faster!
Great!
by Satisfied but no wowed on 2013/03/15 19:36
This app is great for providing the ability to hear chords and scales when a piano is nearby. However, I have noticed that when looking up a chord based on a scale, sometimes it&#39;s impossible to select whatever is last on the list. I also think playing arpeggios might be more useful if it went up and down. Overall, a great composition resource!
Useful but confusing
by srahfox on 2016/03/18 22:50
I really like this app but sometime I find it confusing. Some of that is because there are often several ways to notate a chord and the app doesn&#39;t have them all. I do wish it was somewhat more obvious which of the dozen chords they show is clearly yours. So is say for a beginner it may be confusing, but is still a very useful tool.
It works great, and I love it! But..
by tony behr on 2017/03/16 22:27
Could use a different background color option to the UI, maybe a night mode, cause it&#39;s not easy on my eyes. And more chord progression options, like premade chord progressions. Other than that this is easily the best theory app out there. And I love the reverse chord and reverse scale lookup option.
Incredible!
by KOwens18 on 2015/06/25 05:15
I learned more in one night about playing chords on a piano than I have with anything else I&#39;ve ever tried to use. I play guitar and needed to figure out some basic stuff for a back track. By far, exceeded my hopes and did it quickly. Thanks!
Excellent
by Sent36 on 2013/03/16 14:38
So far I have found nothing that I don&#39;t like about this app. It is extremely convenient during practice to type in your chord to find out what the name is. I especially like the Mode feature while your searching scales. Over all, a very useful app
Outstanding!
by Drummerkat on 2014/11/16 21:27
This app has everything you need to learn basic to complex chords, scales, circle of 5ths, and so much more. The chord dictionary is huge and each chord can be played. There is also a large scale dictionary. Very satisfied. Now I just need time to practice...
This Is Hidden Treasure
by SXxO on 2013/10/08 23:31
I was skeptical due to the $3 filler price and no reviews. I decided to take the chance. I&#39;ve purchased many apps to educate myself with understanding music. This is it. The one you&#39;ll always need at a glance. Just the chord material is worth the $3. All the extras was a complete surprise. It&#39;s golden!!!
Powerful Learning tool
by theofficialgræ on 2014/12/15 18:05
This is the most powerful piano learning app I&#39;ve seen yet. The only thing missing is a way to actually record song ideas. But this is BY FAR the most complex detailed piano app I&#39;ve ever used. Great buy !
Great for piano beginners
by Mark Tee on 2013/09/17 07:57
I like being able to click on scales, chords and circle of fifths and hear them play. Intuitive interface. Responsive and friendly support. This is one of my &#39;go to&#39; music theory apps.
The music app I've been waiting for
by Darren C on 2013/11/16 18:05
This app is a must for any composer/producer! It is so easy to use! There was an issue with the previous version. I contacted the developer and they had it fixed within days! Awesome!
Fantastic
by Tetchy lady on 2014/05/03 05:53
I am a private music teacher. I have been searching for an app like this. One of my students actually found it and shared it with me. I love it. It has everything I want in scales and chords and accompaniment patterns.
Great App
by Business Up on 2017/07/31 19:04
It should adapt some features from songtive like the building of melodies and arp without all the crappy songtive features like having to mingle with other people and all that jazz. But i like Piano it&#39;s awesome. Keep up the good work and thanks for improving on the app little by little.
Great app!
by kewlblu on 2015/06/05 12:48
Love this app! Very useful. I especially like the user library where I can store the chords for each song I&#39;m learning without having to look them up again. Thanks much!
This has been a real great teaching tool
by ThePhiloSurfer on 2017/03/24 17:14
I use this app nearly every time I sit down and produce music. Reverse lookup is by far the best feature. Highly recommend for all musicians and producers.
Amazing.
by Djsqueely on 2015/08/25 20:25
This app is amazing if you are learning scales and chords. It would be nice to have better jazz names and voicings though. It&#39;s impossible to make an E7alt. However, the chord lookup function has always made up for this when trying to find chord scales.
Interface
by Dominique Stassen on 2013/11/23 03:57
Really good app that comes in very handy as a chord database when playing. Please make the interface better looking, but most importantly make it user friendly. That is the only thing keeping me from giving this 5stars
Everything you need to know about scales, chords, music theory.
by Kingpin_lb on 2014/05/03 07:48
Reverse lookup is something I haven&#39;t seen in previous apps! Well developed and highly informative. Recommended to beginners all the way to pros and producers.
Love it!
by KylieM. on 2014/07/08 04:36
I&#39;ve seen other apps like Piano Companion, but never with everything in one place like this! Really convenient and helpful, especially as a college student studying music.
Chord Progression
by Nesredep Dyson on 2014/11/27 06:24
Could you please fix (or add) the ability to move chords around in Chord Progression interface? At this point you can only delete but cannot switch the chords from place to place. Thank you!
Made my shed sessions a breeze!!
by Timstrel on 2014/05/02 14:53
I&#39;m a full time musician and I run multiple groups and rehearsals. This tool made my writing sessions, rehearsals and shedding on tunes a breeze as well as my private teaching. It speaks my language and simplifies my life. Thanks!!
Great
by Evan Maaan on 2014/10/27 13:48
All in all this app rocks. I can make chord progressions and export them to midi, i have access to a ton of chords, and it&#39;s really helping me learn. One thing I think could improve is the navigation between menus is a bit cumbersome. Fix that and it&#39;d be perfect.
What a wonderful App!!!
by supercross10 on 2014/08/15 17:32
Such a fun app to use when your in need of anything to do with playing the Piano! This app has so many features it&#39;s crazy! Keep up the amazing work : )
So helpful
by For Sure Fo Sho on 2014/06/15 15:08
Put in 4 notes I liked. Gave me over 40 scales relating. Found one I liked for my song. Simple. That alone is worth the change for this app. Thank u.
Great for ALL musician!!
by ggarci on 2016/01/06 03:34
This is awesome! Lots of musical information in the palm of your hand. Great for beginners to advance musicians! Great for everybody! It is well organized and user friendly. Awesome interactive piano that help you hear the chords and arpeggios. : )
Fantastic app for musicians and music lovers!
by Institian on 2014/05/02 01:54
More info than could ever be needed by any one person, but enough to help anyone grow and get better in their craft.
Superb!
by Nkhan909 on 2013/09/13 16:43
A very nice handy tool at your fingertips to look up scales, chords,etc. I wish there was a way to mark certain chords or scales as favorite. Superb job by developer on look n feel.
Amazing
by Studious2011 on 2014/05/03 15:22
Trying to learn the piano (novice), this made me realize that to be proficient maybe simple, but to now see the complexity of the cords--it is a lifetime of learning and loving the instrument you chose! Super great help aid for the novice to the master.
Boss
by KnowNaMe on 2015/04/08 01:36
I wish I found this before buying a few other piano related apps.
Very nice app
by Robert55432 on 2014/06/09 14:16
Great tool to have around. I wish there was a way to turn off the auto-scroll to the top of the sequence in chord progression mode when playing manually.
Really useful!
by Abstract520 on 2013/03/19 07:31
This is a Useful and straight forward app. You can&#39;t go wrong. I&#39;d love to see a feature where we can create or arrange chord progressions.
Must have.
by Kaz Gamble on 2015/11/27 06:37
Stop thinking about it and just get this app already. You will use it.

Thank you for the great work and awesome customer service.
Reserve the right to update
by Vector02-2017 on 2019/11/02 16:45
So far so go. No complaints only had the app for a few days now... actually learned a few things about music in just a few minutes using it... reserving the right to update after some more time passes
Works well!
by Tpkyt on 2019/10/06 20:44
Just note that what they removed was a bug. The chord content is there but just not in reverse look-up. I still recommend app for those studying chords!
Much better than before
by Darkshard10 on 2019/10/03 14:09
Thanks for updating the app. After hiding the enharmonic keys it seems much easier to find keys/signatures/scales I’m used to seeing. For example I’m used to seeing B Major instead of Cb Major. Again thank you. And I hope the app can improve even further.
A Great Chord Resource
by JeffRumpole on 2019/08/03 12:42
This app so such a great resource and is fun to play around with. It’s also an excellent learning tool. Most importantly, the developer reads comments and updates the app to address concerns.
The only app I’ve bought more than once
by fluffyfoxfriend on 2018/10/03 16:04
First on a new Google account, then when I switched to iOS. It’s exactly what I need in a reference when making music. What is there to say? You don’t need anything else.
Best of the best
by West Coast Architect on 2018/08/07 01:16
This is my go to app for everything related to scales and chords. Additionally it has the best and most useful circle of fifths of any other app. Included is every possible musical scale under the sun, but it is also nice that you can create a folder of just your own favorite scales. It also shows common fingering for scales and you can create your own custom fingering.
Best music reference
by tipofyourstar on 2017/11/21 00:06
I’ve tried a lot of music theory references, this is the best hands down and worth the purchase. I genuinely would be lost without it.

Chord progressions are predetermined with some standard selections, but if you wish to choose something other than what is preselected, it is not possible to, for example, choose Ab7 while you have Db as the root chord. There is also no help menu to help you along. I would return this if possible, and can only hope the developers will improve on this.

Love this app! Very useful. I especially like the user library where I can store the chords for each song I&#39;m learning without having to look them up again. Thanks much!
Excellent!!!
by JFender7 on 2015/04/27 00:55
This is a great app for piano players.

Powerful Learning tool
by theofficialgræ on 2014/12/15 18:05
This is the most powerful piano learning app I&#39;ve seen yet. The only thing missing is a way to actually record song ideas. But this is BY FAR the most complex detailed piano app I&#39;ve ever used. Great buy !
Chord Progression
by Nesredep Dyson on 2014/11/27 06:24
Could you please fix (or add) the ability to move chords around in Chord Progression interface? At this point you can only delete but cannot switch the chords from place to place. Thank you!
Best Music app for beginners.
by Delonté Greenwell on 2014/11/23 15:03
Helps with all your scales in every key along with all the chords that correspond with it. It&#39;s very comprehensive and is easy to use and it even has a neat chord progression feature. I recommend it for piano players of all skill levels because it packs powerful music information that could assist anyone, and for 3.99 you can&#39;t go wrong.
Outstanding!
by Drummerkat on 2014/11/16 21:27
This app has everything you need to learn basic to complex chords, scales, circle of 5ths, and so much more. The chord dictionary is huge and each chord can be played. There is also a large scale dictionary. Very satisfied. Now I just need time to practice...

by Evan Maaan on 2014/10/27 13:48
All in all this app rocks. I can make chord progressions and export them to midi, i have access to a ton of chords, and it&#39;s really helping me learn. One thing I think could improve is the navigation between menus is a bit cumbersome. Fix that and it&#39;d be perfect.
Better
by Colin Tan on 2014/10/21 18:39
Even better with iPhone 6 support! If the dev could shorten the app name so that it looks good on iPhone home screen it would be perfect!
Won't even load on iPad! Better not charge me!

Awesome - my Swiss Army knife for harmony!
by Yggiz on 2014/07/10 04:24
This has proved to be a very useful app, especially for learning chords and harmonic principles. I am not a piano player, but that doesn&#39;t prevent me from getting a lot out of this app. It saves me lots of time because all the info on chords, scales, and harmony I need is at my fingertips. Makes learning so much faster!
Love it!

So helpful
by For Sure Fo Sho on 2014/06/15 15:08
Put in 4 notes I liked. Gave me over 40 scales relating. Found one I liked for my song. Simple. That alone is worth the change for this app. Thank u.
Very nice app
by Robert55432 on 2014/06/09 14:16
Great tool to have around. I wish there was a way to turn off the auto-scroll to the top of the sequence in chord progression mode when playing manually.
Amazing
by Studious2011 on 2014/05/03 15:22
Trying to learn the piano (novice), this made me realize that to be proficient maybe simple, but to now see the complexity of the cords--it is a lifetime of learning and loving the instrument you chose! Super great help aid for the novice to the master.

Downloaded this app &amp; installed. Now when I try to launch the app, it just shows intro screen and then shuts back down. iOS 7.0.4 will rate higher when I able to use it.
Worth it

Great App to use with Fake Books
by cnsoj on 2013/11/24 14:57
I&#39;ve been looking for an app that gives chords in all inversions, and this meets my needs perfectly. This app has a very wide range of chords and shows a diagram of the chord and lists the notes. I find that it works well with fake books, and I&#39;m also using it with ear training. It is the best app I found for this so far.
Interface
by Dominique Stassen on 2013/11/23 03:57
Really good app that comes in very handy as a chord database when playing. Please make the interface better looking, but most importantly make it user friendly. That is the only thing keeping me from giving this 5stars

This Is Hidden Treasure
by SXxO on 2013/10/08 23:31
I was skeptical due to the $3 filler price and no reviews. I decided to take the chance. I&#39;ve purchased many apps to educate myself with understanding music. This is it. The one you&#39;ll always need at a glance. Just the chord material is worth the $3. All the extras was a complete surprise. It&#39;s golden!!!

My new favorite app!
by Amstene on 2013/09/22 02:39
I&#39;m transitioning from reading sheet music to working off chord sheets, so I need to use inversions quite a bit. On top of giving you hundreds of scales and chords, you can build chord progressions, make inversions, add timing, play them back and even save, load and send. Take the time to learn all the features. I almost gave up on it because I didn&#39;t know how to use the progression feature. Now I can&#39;t get enough!
Amazing for Newbees
by LTZ_Cruze on 2013/09/22 02:15

Best of the best
by West Coast Architect on 2018/08/07 01:16
This is my go to app for everything related to scales and chords. Additionally it has the best and most useful circle of fifths of any other app. Included is every possible musical scale under the sun, but it is also nice that you can create a folder of just your own favorite scales. It also shows common fingering for scales and you can create your own custom fingering.
Much better than before
by Darkshard10 on 2019/10/03 14:09
Thanks for updating the app. After hiding the enharmonic keys it seems much easier to find keys/signatures/scales I’m used to seeing. For example I’m used to seeing B Major instead of Cb Major. Again thank you. And I hope the app can improve even further.
Reserve the right to update
by Vector02-2017 on 2019/11/02 16:45
So far so go. No complaints only had the app for a few days now... actually learned a few things about music in just a few minutes using it... reserving the right to update after some more time passes
The only app I’ve bought more than once
by fluffyfoxfriend on 2018/10/03 16:04
First on a new Google account, then when I switched to iOS. It’s exactly what I need in a reference when making music. What is there to say? You don’t need anything else.
Works well!
by Tpkyt on 2019/10/06 20:44
Just note that what they removed was a bug. The chord content is there but just not in reverse look-up. I still recommend app for those studying chords!
A Great Chord Resource
by JeffRumpole on 2019/08/03 12:42
This app so such a great resource and is fun to play around with. It’s also an excellent learning tool. Most importantly, the developer reads comments and updates the app to address concerns.
Best music reference

by RCRJr on 2016/11/24 13:49
I am an experienced musician of almost 40 years. I also have seen (and presently own) some of the best music reference apps on the market. In the first release of this app, it is already one of the very best. It easily replaces three of the best piano reference apps I own. A terrific and well-thought-out resource. My only problem: there&#39;s little room for improvement. In a word, excellent. Still trying to grasp all the information contained in this app. If you&#39;re serious about music, there&#39;s a lot of necessary info here.
Regretting my purchase
by Anya1984 on 2015/06/30 05:23
I had high hopes for this app, but unfortunately I am regretting my purchase. Like the review titled, &#39;first impressions&#39;, I tried the free version first, but decided to get the app for full functionality. Now I wish I hadn&#39;t because it really isn&#39;t that helpful, easy to use, or intuitive. I agree with everything written in the &#39;first impressions&#39; review. The app leads you to believe that you are choosing a root other than C but in actuality, the root chord is always C. Chord progressions are predetermined with some standard selections, but if you wish to choose something other than what is preselected, it is not possible to, for example, choose Ab7 while you have Db as the root chord. There is also no help menu to help you along. I would return this if possible, and can only hope the developers will improve on this.
first impressions
by Human Brain on 2015/06/19 20:32
I downloaded the “lite” version of this app and it was pretty useless so I decided to try the “pro” version of the app. After an hour of trying to use this I find it to be buggy. The reverse chord lookup doesn’t tell you what chord you played it just lists those that are “near” what you played. The root note won’t change and when I change it it just goes back to “C”. Want an Ab chord in the progression tool ? no you can’t select that and even if you do find a way to change it, it reverts to something else when you go back to the progression screen. I think a progression tool should be, pick the chords I want and the duration, tempo and bam ! there it is. Not with this app. Nice idea but so far a big waste of time.
Great secondary companion
by Bro Bryant on 2016/10/21 01:10
Although I should be able to remember all the natural skills for their keys this is a great help whenever I just simply can&#39;t pull it up as fast as I need to. It has help me begin to craft songs as well as give me new ideas when it comes to melodies and even harmonies. If you are interested in practice or just memory games this is a awesome app and one. It is even better on the iPad because you can play the keyboard on the road.

I largely use this as a dictionary- being a professional in the audio industry but not a classically trained musician this app has saved me a lot of time. It&#39;s simple, the interface is pretty clean (much better since the last update) and it contains a wide breadth of information. Worth every penny.

by Satisfied but no wowed on 2013/03/15 19:36
This app is great for providing the ability to hear chords and scales when a piano is nearby. However, I have noticed that when looking up a chord based on a scale, sometimes it&#39;s impossible to select whatever is last on the list. I also think playing arpeggios might be more useful if it went up and down. Overall, a great composition resource!
Useful but confusing
by srahfox on 2016/03/18 22:50
I really like this app but sometime I find it confusing. Some of that is because there are often several ways to notate a chord and the app doesn&#39;t have them all. I do wish it was somewhat more obvious which of the dozen chords they show is clearly yours. So is say for a beginner it may be confusing, but is still a very useful tool.
It works great, and I love it! But..
by tony behr on 2017/03/16 22:27
Could use a different background color option to the UI, maybe a night mode, cause it&#39;s not easy on my eyes. And more chord progression options, like premade chord progressions. Other than that this is easily the best theory app out there. And I love the reverse chord and reverse scale lookup option.
Incredible!
by KOwens18 on 2015/06/25 05:15
I learned more in one night about playing chords on a piano than I have with anything else I&#39;ve ever tried to use. I play guitar and needed to figure out some basic stuff for a back track. By far, exceeded my hopes and did it quickly. Thanks!
Excellent
by Sent36 on 2013/03/16 14:38
So far I have found nothing that I don&#39;t like about this app. It is extremely convenient during practice to type in your chord to find out what the name is. I especially like the Mode feature while your searching scales. Over all, a very useful app

It should adapt some features from songtive like the building of melodies and arp without all the crappy songtive features like having to mingle with other people and all that jazz. But i like Piano it&#39;s awesome. Keep up the good work and thanks for improving on the app little by little.

This app is amazing if you are learning scales and chords. It would be nice to have better jazz names and voicings though. It&#39;s impossible to make an E7alt. However, the chord lookup function has always made up for this when trying to find chord scales.

Trying to learn the piano (novice), this made me realize that to be proficient maybe simple, but to now see the complexity of the cords--it is a lifetime of learning and loving the instrument you chose! Super great help aid for the novice to the master.

I wish I found this before buying a few other piano related apps.
Very nice app

Great tool to have around. I wish there was a way to turn off the auto-scroll to the top of the sequence in chord progression mode when playing manually.
Really useful!

This is a Useful and straight forward app. You can&#39;t go wrong. I&#39;d love to see a feature where we can create or arrange chord progressions.
Must have.

Stop thinking about it and just get this app already. You will use it.
