Quick Chords - iPhone/iPad app

Just recently found this app on the app store. Developer Beau Young designed this app to give musicians simple and fast access to some useful songwriting, transcribing and composition tools.

What does it give to you? Well, first there's a capo guide which helps you to transcribe songs or tunes, which is often useful. Then there's the circle of fifth which helps to find the major/minor relatives and key signatures.
But most interesting to me is chords. This feature shows you which chord go together in different keys. It also gives you random chord progressions which always fit and most of the time sound interesting. Good for practicing or songwriting.

You can try some functions with the free version and then decide whether to buy the full version or not. I think that's a good deal.

Here's a site with more informations and screenshot of the app. The screenshot above is from this website. (
