Chord! (Guitar Chord Finder) apk
DescriptionChord! is mainly a guitar (or any fretted instrument) chord finder. Unlike most of the other apps, it generates itself chords diagrams, so it supports any chord (even slash ones like D/F#) in any tuning, with any number of strings (guitar, banjo, ukulele, bass, mandolin, etc.). You can fine tune to your needs the chord search algorithm, like specifying the maximal number of fingers or fret span for example.You can hear how each diagram sounds by sweeping your finger across the strings. The diagrams are displayed in color and you can view stats about the current fingering.
You can also reverse search chords: Entering on a neck the fingering will give you instantaneously the possible names of the chord and you will then be able to explore possible variations.
Furthermore, it embeds a database of 400 scales that you can plot on a neck in any tuning, or reverse search. It means that you can find the scales corresponding to the notes you enter on a neck.
You can also harmonize each scale with a total freedom on the parameters.
The database is shipped with a hundred of tunings for various instruments and you can add you own ones. You can also add a capo or forbid some strings (for example if you broke some).
The app fully supports left handed instruments.

Chord has been featured app in the android market and was presented at Google IO 2011!
Note: The app tries to detect if your device is a tablet or a phone. For intermediate devices like big phones or small tablets it is not straightforward, and you can override the layout in the settings, advanced section.
Note: Some Archos devices may no be able to reproduce sound.
