Ultimate Circle Of Fifths App Reviews

More than 8 bars

Can I get 32 bars of progression please

Great app one issue

I hope it’s not my phone but on the playback it like vibrates my speakers and distorts the sound. When I play regular music out of my speakers this doesn’t happen. Kind of like the volume is clipping or something.

Yes, worth it.

This is an awesome app! I teach music for a living and it's productive and fun to use with students, but great for improvisational practice for myself as well. Is there a way to change the time signature? Maybe in an update? 😬 Phenomenal, still. Practical, user friendly and insightful.


This is a music app that does everything it says.

Best Circle of Fifths App so far

This app is really a nicely done music tool with a great UX. There are a few comments critical of aspects that it lacks to which I would comment give it a chance. The developer appears to be very responsive to suggestions and this is a first cut. We need great tools like this so let’s give them support so they can work on it to continue making improvements. I see a lot of potential for this tool and hope everyone can see this as well and support it. Spread the word. Great job! Looking forward to future versions. Thank you.

Great job

This is a question more than a review. Can I change between 4/4 and 3/4 beats.

A bang for the buck

I almost never write reviews for apps but this one felt like it deserves a praise. The UI is very appealing with neat colors and the makers of this app clearly did their research on user base because it caters to both beginners and professionals. I’ve been a musician for about six years now and a UX designer for three, and this is the first time I’m seeing two of my favorite things blend into one awesome entity. At first even I thought if it’ll be worth spending the money for and now I’ve realized the vast possibilities this app has to offer. Sometimes I get writers block when trying to come up with a piece and cannot really place the next chord in the sequence and also I’ve had hard time getting my head around different modes. This app surprisingly has it all and I’d highly recommend any musician to check it out.

Ideas for new updates

App is pretty good and fun to use. I recommend getting it to anyone who wants a better understanding of progressions. I would hope to see in the future options for saving chord progressions, making chord progressions that are longer than 8 bars, and possibly different instrument sounds. I think these are all relatively easy additions. I would also recommend an option to use chords from the parallel minor or modal interchange. This would be a tremendously better app if it had that. It would be worth way more money. I would even pay in app purchase for it if it worked well. I'd rather see it free but people need money. This app is good and is updated pretty regularly. I'd give it five stars if they manage to bring my suggestions to life. I'm hopeful because these don't seem like they would be incredibly hard to add to the already good UI. I would also like to point out a glitch where if you exit to home screen out of the app while having a chord progression being played it can make a horrible spazz noise. Overall really good app that's actually worth the price I'd buy it again.


Given the name I really thought this app would have more features and customizations, the length of the progression is only 4 or 8 bar and there’s no customization within the bar also I would have hope I could write a progression on c Ionian for example and then in the same progression being able to borrow chords from a different c mode, Dorian for example , but instead when I switch to Dorian mode the progression automatically switch to D Dorian , changes the relationship between the chords, understandable, but it would be useful to have the option to actually be able to mix chords from different modes of the same key.

Make a plugin for audio workstations

I’d love to have this app at my disposal on Ableton! Please think about making a plugin!

Major or 7th chords all or nothing?

I try not to review things before I’ve spent a good amount of time with them, but maybe the developer can help me out - is there no way to set progression mode to a minor key?? It seems like you can only switch from EVERYTHING major key to EVERYTHING 7th chords. Maybe there’s a good music theory-oriented reason for this (I bought this ap relatively ignorant of theory after all), but these seem like really basic things - especially the major/minor key signature aspect. All that said, I’m already enjoying and seeing the potential in the ap as is and fully intend to continue using it.

Great app for musicians

Would love to see a melody section you can play over the chords

Great but needs work

The app is fantastic and the UI is aesthetically pleasing! Except it be great to have the progression keep on playing when I play the song from the music app on the phone. As well as allowing me to exclude certain chords if for example I want to include a rest or sustain a note for one or two measures.

Very cool app

Very good for song writers! Please add more flexibility w the grid.. (I.e. being able to put chords in any part of a bar) This app can be a go to song idea machine for musicians before We record them.. also say I have a chord progression playing, u guys should make it so that when The user switches to scales the user can write a melody also.

Borrowed chords should be included

I love the idea of the app, but I’m somewhat upset it’s restrained to only 7 chords within the key. I’d give it 5 stars if you could borrow chords from different keys or parallel modes.

Good app

Pretty cool app with a really nice interface. Although, I can't figure out if it's possible to add chords to the progression outside of the key. This is a little annoying, however the app is still good overall

Borrowed Chords!!!

The app is fun BUT... I’d love to see an integration of borrowed chords and secondary dominants within a chosen key. Something like setting your key and then being able to shift the circle/mode around without changing the chords you’ve placed in your progression. And the ability to integrate 7ths, 11ths, 13ths, sus2, and sus4 without toggling for every chord.

The best

This app shows the interplay of the scales, modes, and progressions in the circle. It is great for songwriters, music students and theorists. Works well for all instruments; plus works great as a backing track to get down the basics of scales and modes. Also great for improvising basics. A must have for all music students.

Love it

I love this app! So easy to operate

Awesome review

This app is sooo very helpful. Former piano player learning guitar. Usually trying to visualize the circle on my piano while playing my guitar! Now trying to learn the relationships of the l, IV, V and full circle on guitar not referring to piano. This makes it so easy to practice. Wonderful. Thx.

Great tool, great design

Elegantly designed and easy to use. There’s a wealth of information and utility here. Nice little touches like the next chord in the sequence flickering before it plays. A few small translation quirks in English, but no doubt they’ll get smoothed out in future updates.


This app is beautiful, simple, and is already helping me come up with chord progressions to write music. Thank you so much!
