Navichord giveaway results – 10 winners of chord/harmony exploration app

I did a full review of Navichord here on the Music App Blog some time ago but, as I've also posted more recently, the app had had a whole series of updates since launch and has considerably expanded upon its feature set as a consequence. The design is also so simple and elegant that the app is a pleasure to use.

Navichord update – further refinements added to the excellent iOS chord sequencer/MIDI controller

I reviewed Navichord here on the Music App Blog back in September 2014. The original release was designed to do one job – it allowed the user to explore chord structures and progressions and possible melodic association – but the design is so simple and elegant that, even though it was (at that stage) more of an educational tool or idea pad, rather than an actual musical instrument, it is a pleasure to use. The first major update - taking the app to v.1.1 - turned the app into a 'MIDI … [Read more...]
