NOT AT ALL WORTH OVER $5!!!

:
I have over 100 various apps.

I know that a lot of time went into creating this app; however, most of the few definitions are very minimal. It is also very difficult to see the various diagrams, of which there are few. There are definitions that refer to various pages or tables. Where are they?

As a 65 year old music teacher, I felt that a $15 app should have detailed nomenclature and theory. I have "The New Harvard Dictionary of Music," and hoped that this might be similar in scope, although the small amount of data (stated at the bottom of ("Reviews") should have suggested something to the contrary. My mistake!

I have other music apps that deal with music theory: They are only a few dollars and more complex!

I sincerely hope for many updates in the near future that include complete definitions of most musical terms, symbols, and theory. Then this would be worth the price!

2/5 stars

Where are the reviews for the Old Versions??!!

:
I looked at this app about 2 weeks ago prior to iOS4. Some good comments for the app & plenty against. It seemed to be "even." I was hoping to see some new comments since a new version just came out. I hope this version is NOT only for the new OS but for some improvements as well. I guess I will find out. One for sure is the ability to have an Alphabetical List on the side for easy navigation. It doesn't appear that this is the case since the "snapshots" appear to be the same as before.

Looking forward to taking this reference with me as I use & own a hardcopy already. :-)

0/5 stars

A real bummer.

:
Not nearly enough information or entries for the music lover. Why bother paying the exorbitant price for this app when searching in wiki gives you so much more, eg, illustrations, more informative entries, external links. And why abbreviate every other word?! I'm really bummed I paid for this sorry excuse of an app.
