Great customer service, timely and effective. Thank you for quick turnaround. This is a true asset to have for the working musician!
After the quick response from iReal Pro support, my initial review issue below is not an issue. I just had ro learn to scroll lright to see the option to share incoming iReal Pro attachment files to to iReal Pro app on my device, and it tells you where to find the attachment within the app. So I upgraded this rating to 5 stars, and couldn’t be happier with it! Thanks iReal Pro! Bob MY FORMER REVIEW FOLLOWS: I really like the app, and purchased it for both Android and iOS, but in iOS it is not letting me bring the iReal Pro email attachment into to iReal Pro on my iPad by pressing and holding on the attachment as the directions call for. The above is the only function that I’ve found is NOT working at this point, but I’d really like to get it working. Bob
This app is incredible. Not only am I able to find most songs from the real book and quickly dose load them, if the charts are wrong I can edit the chords or timing or repeats, key or tempo as needed. Not only that, when i couldn't find a song on the forums, I could create the chart as I needed it for any song. Only downfall is that I paid for the app on my mac too, and I can't seem to login on the iphone to transfer my songs to my laptop. Incredible and needed for any jazz musician or genre beyond. In a band you can practice or share these charts so everyone knows how their solo will sound over the music. Great app. When I found I could create charts I was in disbelief. Comping style sounds great between bossa and up tempo or any other style
Great app, excellent support!
I love this app and use it all the time. But I am very frustrated with the fact that I cannot download the app on my computer when I purchased it on my phone. I looked on the developer website and they said I cannot transfer license between iOS App Store and Mac App Store. There must be a way around this.
I’ve been using iReal Pro for a few years and find it very useful in working out melodies, finding my stride and generally hashing out my chops. I highly recommend it. Tons of tunes as well! Howie
Reading posts on website of users wanting better sound quality with adjustable parameters. Better sound quality would be a great perk, but I like the basic simplicity of the app, it helps me focus on my core purpose, practice and study of my instrument. Keeps my mind from wandering off on technical issues. If people are looking for accompaniment for live settings or rehearsal look at other software ...or better yet find some humans to play with!!! Love this app.
I give this five stars so maybe some poor schmuk will read it before blowing a bunch of money. I don't review often, but I must say this is the most poorly designed and useless app I have ever purchased. Simply changing a chord in one of the practice songs requires a programming degree from MIT. Making a mistake in the editor means deleting the entire song and starting over and still not being able to change an A chord to an E chord. MAKE IT SIMPLE STUPID should be the rule for the programmers of this piece of junk. If you want something to accompany you with YOUR chords, forget this app. Developers...,how about letting someone simply click on the f-ing chord AND CHANGE IT, what a concept. DON’T WASTE A PENNY IN THIS USELESS APPLICATION!!!!!!!!
I have been using this app for about 2 years, and it is truly outstanding. I use it with a split screen with the music playing in the other half of the screen. The support is also superb.
