Hi,
I would like to use the BIAB app (on android phones or tablets) for displaying song chords during live performances.

For this purpose I would suggest the following functions to be included in a future update:

- Making the size of the chord symbols adjustable would allow to read them from a distance during a performance

- BIAB should allow to adjust the orientation of the screen(in order to be able to switch from portrait to landscape mode and to zoom in on the chords or notation)

- BIAB should allow to change the number of bars displayed in each line or it should automatically adjust the number of bars per line depending on the chosen font size

- It would also be great if one could not only read the chords but also the melody on the device either by including a note or leadsheet mode on the app

These adjustments would greatly enhance the usability of the app which already includes the basic functions and I am sure that they would attract a lot of musicians who want to get rid of all the paperwork.

Thank you for making a fantastic app even better,
Jo

I had a wish for BB2GO for android that I thought I had mentioned but I can't find it so THIS looks like where I should have posted it - here goes.

I would REALLY like to see a default "Juke Box" mode based on the folder that the last song was opened from. This would allow us to construct a SET of Songs to practice along with - or just listen to for Chord Change Ear Training - WITHOUT having to use the Open File Dialogue for each song - Amazing

Not much action on this idea - Maybe I should explain it better.

I have all the DEMO songs loaded onto my Android phone and it's great for ear training for chord changes in all the differnet styles.

The only problem is when I want to move on to another song the OPEN File menu defaults to the SONGS folder.

What if we wanted to use an SD Card for more songs? Being able to change the default folder would be a GREAT option in the Preferences.

We receive user feedback many ways, including our Facebook page, by email or phone, using the Comments tab on our Band-in-a-Box® pages, the My Favorite Things Forum, and more!

Like the great feedback recently posted by Al-David:
"I write and play in quite a few different genres. The flexibility BIAB gives me makes transpositions, from one genre to another, so easy and quick. A number of times I've created a piece, intending it to be a Smooth Jazz or Smooth RnB song. But when I generated the song, it just didn't work in the intended genre.

With a simple click of the Style Picker ... BAM! The song ended up as a pretty decent Pop song. I only had to replace a couple of instruments from the new style and alter a couple of chords..."

Post your feedback to our Forum - My Favorite Things - we'd love to hear it!
