Hello everyone,

First of all - Thank you Justin for investing your time and creating an app for the guitar community.

I have installed this app some time ago with an intention to replace weekly paper version from Justin's book. With the later I was actually quite happy - I only wanted to have the timer and the info all in one  :)
The fact that the timer has 5 "prepare" seconds (or 3, don't remember anymore)  was really cool - much better than Iphone timer.

In general I have expected that the software will actually save the consequent results of the same chord pair in order to see the progress (like the paper version - M, T, W, etc.), to my surprise in the result page there was only one number present for each chord change, which didn't give me any feedback - was I getting better? how fast was I getting better? As I have read in other comments the app is supposed to save the highest count and then I guess with the reach of 60 changes the chord pair was marked as "learned". For me it was not enough - like that i couldn't see how fast i was progressing.

Another strange thing was that random chords were actually not random at all - from 10 or more chord combinations, the software used to pop up the same combination 5 times in a row.. thought maybe I was doing something wrong, but the app is straight forward and there are no possibilities to do something differently.

Functionality that I was missing was the ability to chose chord pairs "of the day". The training plan suggests to spend 5 minutes for chord changes, but my problem was that  sometimes it took 5-10 minutes till some particular chord combination popped up at least once - I guess its the same randomness problem. I would propose to add the function where one could chose 5 chord pairs which would simply go in a sequence.

By paper version I meant the "practice schedule" in the end of every stage in the Beginner's book. You can find practice schedule PDF file for every stage inside of the CD2, which you get with the book.

I guess you need to strum and hear the correct tone of the chord. In my opinion, it's both, ears and fingers training method. I always do strum-pick-strum to make sure that my fingers are positioned properly on strings to avoid buzz.

You really didn't need a special app for this. You can use your mobile device's timer or any other alarm. The app doesn't count your changes, you have to count them yourself. Write down your daily result in a sheet and compare the results to assess your progress. :)

I can build a web-based one minute changes that works on any browser despite the platform. However, to save progress, it requires a hosting server with backend database platform. For the time being, I can use local storage, which means, progress is saved on local machine and can't be accessed from a different machine.

Will look into the bugs and chat with dev guy about getting it to recognize the chord count! J
+1 from me for the chord recognition and auto-count feature  :)
As some time has passed since the first requests for chord recognition and both technology and devices have improved, your dev guy may be able to implement this feature now?

This looks good.  I have the one minute changes app but I like how you can see your stats on this.  the only thing is that when I hit the pause button, it doesn't pause.  Thanks for this though!
