Songwriterâ€™s Pad is a professional lyric-writing app designed specifically for the iPad, with the aim of enabling songwriters to write, arrange and store all of their lyrics and song concepts in one app. It also includes a digital audio recorder for capturing vocal ideas when the muse strikes. I know a lot of songwriters and musicians like using the iPhoneâ€™s voice recorder for this very thing, so maybe theyâ€™ll start doing the same with the iPad too.
For those suffering songwriterâ€™s block, the app even features unique emotion-based idea-generating tools to help prompt your artistic muse into action and prod it out of its slump! Songwriters can use the idea generator to randomly generate words and phrases that reflect their mood by tapping on a category such as â€œLoveâ€, â€œHateâ€, â€œDesireâ€, â€œHopeâ€, â€œFearâ€ and so on. The words and phrases that emerge during this process can then be posted on sticky notes for later use. The app also includes other basic but essential tools such as a searchable Dictionary, a Thesaurus, and a 70k + word Rhyming Dictionary.
Songwriterâ€™s Pad has already received a lot of attention, being featured by Apple as the Number 1 â€œNew and Noteworthy Appâ€ for all categories in the UK App Store during the week of August 8th, and it was also featured as the Number 1 â€œNew and Noteworthy Appâ€ in the US in the music category during the week of July 12th. The app is available to download now from the iPad App Store for $9.99/Â£5.99.
