Around town early adopters of iRealb on the iPad loved it and started bringing them to jams and shows. Then the 200 dollar Fire came out, and there is unanimous agreement that it is superior in nearly all regards for the iRealb application. The largest being the size reduction. The Kindle size is perfect for a music stand or a small table corner. It takes up way less space, is much easier to carry and brings the same feature set (if there are critical differences between iOS IRB and Android IRB, I have not faced them) as other platforms. Any smaller and it would be too small for reading music charts.

The user interface is not overly intuitive and takes some time to understand. But once you've authored a handful of charts, it becomes nicely manageable. The ability to share files is limited to posting and downloading from the forum or sending email links. This works and it's how we share tunes between our group. But it's also cumbersome, poorly conceived and a bit odd in this age of cloud computing and service-based data applications. I think a plug-in architecture addition would be wonderful. Then I could code a DropBox component that automatically syncs tunes/changes/playlists for all members of my group.

I also think this app should be open source (again, so I could contribute features to it), but I won't blame the fellow for wanting to make a living.

The systemic shortcomings aside, there's just too much value to be had to not give this application a strong rating. I've gained a great deal from it.

The useful aspects are 1) many songs that can be downloaded easily from the forum 2) wide range of tempos 3) ability to cut out an instrument 4) change keys, 5) change style of backing (med. swing, bossa or whatever) and many more.

The teaching mode is very useful. It can be programmed to increase the tempo by a specified amount every chorus. It can also be programmed to change the key by a specified interval every chorus. I personally like the tempo feature for practicing a head starting off slowly and speeding up.

One problem is that if you want to learn the head of the tune, you need to have the music from somewhere else. I can't think of any way for iReal b to solve this problem. Another small nit is that there is no Windows version. I bought an android tablet for the purpose of using iReal b. If there was a Windows version I would have used my laptop. The advantage of the tablet I bought (Samsung Galaxy 2 tab 7") is that it is easy to carry around. And I can just put it on the music stand.

I have only been using it for a couple of days. There are many features I have yet to discover and utilize. I don't think you will be disappointed.

this app is so well done and usefull! the people complaining about not having jazz standards on it should be embarrassed of themselves and read the directions on the app website! I am a jazz musician myself and I bought the app for the standards! they are all there at the forums! the chords and the playalong!! great app!!!!

I love Jazz standards. This app has helped me learn some of my favorites and even some knew ones. It also helps as I try to learn how to do jazz improvisational since it will do play through the chart with drums, piano/guitar, bass. You are able to alter the volume of each of the instruments as well. I've read that some use this to do live gigs if they don't have a live band with them. It's a great feature and wonderful when practicing both the chart, and any lead.

Some have down rated this app because it doesn't include lyrics or melody line. There is a reason for this that, perhaps most, musicians know: Lyrics and Melody lines are copyrighted. Chord progressions do not have copyrights. If the lyrics/melodies were included, I'm sure the price of this app would be much higher.

I recommend this app to those who want to get rid of the big binders of music or those who want to have a convenient way to practice.

I played a casual gig for the first time in many *many* years on New Year's Eve (just for fun). Needless to say, I was expecting to be very rusty, and would not have remembered all of the chord changes, etc. to all of the jazz standards that I used to play regularly as a kid. I was also expecting my on-the-fly transposition skills to be rusty, which *could* have been an issue since I am a horn player and since we were playing with a vocalist who wouldn't necessarily have wanted to play those tunes in their original keys (basically rendering my fake books useless for the evening).

This app is great. For the Gen-X'ers who started playing jazz in the 90's and maybe even had a few practice tools on their old DOS/Windows PC's, it reminds me of a touch-screen/on-the-go combination of Band-in-a-Box and Encore. I was able to easily create playlists of all of the tunes in the set list, in the keys that the vocalist had selected, and using the global transposition function to convert all of the charts from C to Bb (for tenor sax, trumpet, etc.). I didn't spend a lot of time using the built-in accompaniment function, but I expect it too will be very useful (when my device is plugged into external speakers) for practicing chord changes on-the-go.
