‘smartChord PLUS Chords’ allows to
choose between more than 350 predefined tunings (e.g. DADGAD or Open A)
define any number of individual custom tuning for each instrument
assemble and retain any favorite fingering for any predefined or customized tuning. smartChord gives your “fingering favorites” preferential treatment and highlights them or displays them on a specific screen.
save your favorite chord progressions – of famous compositions, your excercises or your own music.
create backups of all smartChord data such as settings, chord progressions, exercises, etc.

smartChord knows also the other way around. It finds out, if a chosen grip corresponds with a certain chord. This feature is generally known as reverse chord finder. By the way, you can define if you allow slash chords, inverted chords or incomplete chords.

    Didn't work as advertised. However after some back and forth with the developer they fixed the issue with favorites and put a new version on Google Play. They respond quickly to bug reports like this. Full Review
