Pros and cons of iReal Pro app for iPhone and iPad

iReal Pro app good for

I use it all the time. Excellent and convenient for my students.
Well, I can just recommend it. It is a wonderful tool for those of us who love music! Cheers!
It s a wonderful practise tool! but please, re-enable the possibility of looping one single bar!! since last update this feature seems to be gone. only by draging a bar selection over at least 2 bars the loop button appears. this is annoying when working on pieces bar-wise. And please offer more styles (how about some rock?) Thanks!
Custom progressions, download and edit progressions. Very helpful! A lot of youtube play-alongs use this app
device for Jazz musicians! Perfect for practise. I dont want to miss it. iReal Pro was the reason which got me an IPhone ;)
Ive just started learning the tenor sax, and iReal b has already proven (after only a few days) its enormous value. Im trying (with the assistance of a great teacher) to learn to play and improvise mostly by ear. After loading an enormous playlist of jazz and gypsy jazz standards into the software (which probably took less than 10 "clicks"), I instantly started playing (and playing around) tracks that I know and love. The accompanying algorithmic "band" is great -- piano and drums sound fantastic and have a very natural rhythm (the developer is a musician, and it shows). It would be great if a future version of the software would allow to loop a song endlessly. It would also be great if one could record the drums and piano simultaneously with the sound coming into the internal microphone (a great way to send a "full track" to a friend or to ones teacher!). Absolutely recommended!

Some bad moments

As a longtime user of the old iReal b I have to say: The editor of iReal Pro (Version 5) is really a mess. One has to struggle with some apparently new presets, which make it a nuisance, to simply give in some chords. Grrr ... i want my iReal b back!
...I expect a little more. May be for Jazz musicians its a good tool, but some essentials Im missing. Rock sounds are only two available and they sound terrible and the downloads of the forum are often not playing. For more then 12€ they have a lot of homeworks to do.
With just chords and no melodies this is literally one notch above totally useless. This is a waste of money please dont waste your money you can find the melodies and chords online for free but you want to pay money for just chords and then youll have to find the free file online to complete the song anyways....this is literally a waste of money and the only reason I bought it was because it used to look like a fake book which means it had melodies so I assumed and I was ignorant. This doesnt have melodies, just chords, therefore its a waste of money.
After the update to iOS 9.1 the songs skip during playback, so it is impossible to play! Urgent update is needed! Update to 9.2 did not solve the issue.
