Took a while for me to fully appreciate this app, but this a great tool for a student of jazz. You can get an accurate chart of any jazz standard, transpose to any key, export a pdf of your chart--you get a back track, change the tempo. I think I have access to 1200 songs. Try that with a fake book! And good customer service as well. Must have for any jazz student.

I LOVE this program! Not only can you find thousands of charts to jazz, blues and rock tunes (even share the charts over many different methods), but the practice/play along function is invaluable. Before I purchased this program (at such a reasonable rate!), I was constantly trying to find backing tracks for practicing both vocals and piano. But often, those free tracks were in the wrong key. And the paid tracks add up fast! With IRealPro, you can change the tempo (slower when you're learning), set it to loop as many times as you want, create your own charts, modify charts, change the key (a must for my low voice), and even try the song with different rhythms. I don't know what we did without it. I have bought copies for other band members too. Just DO it!

Good morning all, This app is incredible! I Love all of the capabilities it offers. Too many to list.You can really master the chord changes of songs with due diligence and commitment. I also Love the fact that the melody of the tune is not included. This forces the musician to learn it hopefully on their own. Ear training I feel is still very, very critical in the development of musicians. I am having a problem using it with my Laptop. It always displays the message that the app is already installed which I know it is on my phone. I am unable to choose my Laptop as the device I want to use because it is not showing in the list of devices. Please help me solve this long standing problem. I greatly appreciate your guidance and Thank you Again for a wonderful app!

What's new

- New Feature: customize common odd time signatures. Choose if 5/8, 5/4 should be played as 3+2 or 2+3 and if 7/8, 7/4 should be played as 4+3 or 3+4, by adding the text 2+3, 3+4... in the desired measure in the song.
- Improved song search by ignoring apostrophes: search for Im, Its, well... instead of I'm, It's, We'll...
- Added external keyboard shortcuts for Transposition (Ctrl ↑ ↓) and Style change (Ctrl ← →)
