V3.0.2: Left-Handed instrument are working properly now.
V3.0.1: Small stability fixes.
Note about V3: Since this version is all new, don’t hesitate to contact me by email or via the app if you have any issue with it. Putting a comment saying it crashes or it’s wrong doesn’t allow me to solve the issue.
If the app crashes at start after an update, try to uninstall/reinstall.
Sorry for the updates pace!
(Changelog more detailed in the app description)
Chord! is the last chord charts book you will ever need, and it plays them too!
Chord! is mainly a guitar (or any fretted instrument) chord finder. Unlike most of the other apps, it generates itself chords diagrams, so it supports any chord (even slash’s ones like D/F#) in any tuning, with any number of strings (guitar, banjo, ukulele, bass, mandolin, etc.).
You can hear how each diagram sounds by sweeping your finger across the strings. The diagrams are displayed in color and you can view stats about the current fingering.
You can also reverse search chords: Entering on a neck the fingering will give you instantaneously the possible names of the chord and you will then be able to explore possible variations.
Furthermore, it embeds a database of a 400 scales that you can plot on a neck in any tuning, or reverse search. It means that you can find the scales corresponding to the notes you enter on a neck.
You can also harmonize each scale with a total freedom on the parameters.
The database is shipped with a hundred of tunings for various instruments and you can add you own ones.
The app fully supports left handed instruments.
You can fine tune to your needs the chord search algorithm, like specifying the maximal number of fingers or fret span.

Translated in: English, German, French, Italian, Portuguese (Brazilian), Romanian, .
(Translation are temporary disabled in the V3 since the translated strings have changed)
Chord has been featured app in the android market and was presented at Google IO 2011!
Note: The app tries to detect if your device is a tablet or a phone. For intermediate devices like big phones or small tablets it is not straightforward, and you can override the layout in the settings, advanced section.
Note: Some Archos devices may no be able to reproduce sound.
