I found Chordmate a while ago when I was looking for an application that would allow me to make quick and easy chord sheets for my guitar students, and have been VERY happy with it. It makes very nice chord diagrams, and with version 1.4 allows the user to make custom chord diagrams. It's also a snap to copy/paste, and save the chords as images. The developer is also very responsive to feedback, and seems to strive to make the product better. I highly recommend it, and regard Chordmate as a useful tool which does exactly what it is supposed to do.

I'm curious if any of you ChordMate Users might have some Information for me. I'm looking for a Client/App to Write (basically) Lead Sheets. I'd love to be able to Type-in Lyrics and be able to post Chord Symbols above the Lyrics... and a Lead/Melody Line like in a Fake Book. Any ideas?

Very true. IF this is a good product, let alone an outstanding one - I can’t tell! The developer is shooting themselves in the foot in the lack of a demo, or other detail information.

There are other Apps:, Songs & Songs Pro, ChordMate & ChordMate Pro, all by the same developer, at a range of prices.

I don’t even have enough information to assess which really does what I want, if in fact any of these do.

As a result, I opt out.

Dear developer, I would really love to try ChordMate. Unfortunately there is no demo, and while I pay you gladly 50$ if your app proves to be useful to me, it is too much just to try and then to find that ChordMate doesn't fit my needs. I guess a demo version wouldn't hurt you, if your app is any good. There are currently no reviews on the MacAppStore for ChordMate, so I guess you haven't sold that many… Maybe you could generate more sales by getting some 5-star reviews in the MacAppStore? But for that, you have to give us a demo, so we can evaluate and eventually buy your app and then review on the MacAppStore…

We are planning to release a demo version at some point and to sell it directly as well. (There are some reviews on the mac app store, but they are not for the latest version, so you don't see them unless you open the app store description and select that you want customer reviews for all versions.)

I was looking for a program to primarily give me images of chords to use for song sheets. This was really the only program available which would manage it, and I could just drag and drop chords into a word processing document nice and easy. I downloaded the demo version to try out and was impressed with the functionality, even changing the instrument / playing style used to preview chords. Paid for the pro version, but didn't feel ripped off. It does exactly what i need it to without a whole load of fuss. And the best thing was when I had a few tips on how to make the program better, these were implemented within a few weeks and available as a free update. Communication with the developer has been top class. I'd definitely recommend trying it. Features: 4 - not the most complicated app, but does everything i need it to! Ease of use: 4 - Pretty easy, a bit tricky working with the rule editor, but they're making constant improvements to make it easier. Value: 5 - Cheap enough and does everything I bought it for. Nothing else on the market like it. Stability: 4 - Was crashing at certain points when i first bought it, but after a quick email, they posted an update (within days) to address the issue.

What have I learned from your ancient post?:

I learned you like what you used the product for in 2008.

However, I am sorry to point out that it does not elucidate what that is, other than dropping a graphic of chord charts into another document - in 2008.
