    Hi, I purchased this app in my Mac computer but can’t see it in my iPhone neither in my iPad. If I can’t see in all my devices I don’t want the app. Please let me know how can I resolve this issue.


    • Dear Maria,
      We are sorry but, in our opinion it is not possible to resolve, because “iOS App Store” and “Mac App Store” are two separate stores. If you have an example of any app which can be purchased this way, please let us know and we will investigate it.
      Thank you

    Hi I have payed for the full price app but am disappointed with it because non of the chords can be displayed with flat (b) notation. This excludes many commonly used chords and is a huge problem. Is there a function that I am missing ?

    • Dear Martin,
      The “Piano Chords Compass” app is in version 1.0 and we collect the users feedback for the future versions. Thank you, we will think about your suggestion to integrate the (b) notation into the app. We have an other app with the (b) notations “Piano Chords Lite”, if you want you can download it from https://neonway.org/pianochordslite/ , but it has not so many chords as “Piano Chords Compass”.

    pianochordscompass: Cmaj9 is wrong.

    • Dear Allen,
      all our chords are double checked and should be ok. We use as reference Apple Garage Band Smart Instruments. In this notation Cmaj9 means “C major 9”
      May be you using a different notation for the chords? If you are still the think that this chord is wrong, please send us more verbose information what exactly is wrong and we will check it.
      Thank you

  4. where in the can i transpose to make the chords sound 1 or 2 octaves down?
    thanks, Stephen
