    This is a little application I wrote a few days ago.
    This is the conversion of the modguitars.com web application in native ipod/iphone appl.

    Hope works for all of you.
    Comments and suggestions are welcome.

    I'm thinking about a guitar chord app that shows the chords and you press them like a traditional guitar neck and the positions light up. Is it like that?

    Yeah, you really should explain what this is better and add screenshots. They are vital for an application to get DL'ed

    Nicely done, ventimi, thank you! Very clean and responsive. I love that the dictionary is external so that I can edit the chords with my own preferences.

    It would be great if you could add inversions/positions, a few more chord types, and maybe a reverse chord finder.

    Here's a screenshot:

    An 'E maj' chord, for example, can be played on the first fret, 4th, or 7th fret using common fingerings. A 'D maj' chord can be played with the F# in the bass or on the top string. Those are simple examples of inversions/positions. Most chords can easily be played 3 or 4 different ways on the guitar, so it would be nice to show the variations, since in context, some sound much better than others.

    As for chord types, it would be nice to have sus2 , msus4, 7sus4, add9, dim7.

    Here are a couple of web-based chord finders that offer many more chord types:

    A reverse chord finder is where you mark the notes on a fretboard and it tells you the name(s) of the chord.

    Here's a web based example:

    Thanks for this, it's really handy.

    I will add different variations even if I must study the interface for giving users alternative chord position (maybe touching the end of the freatboard)...
    I 've added types sus2 and dim7.
    For the other types I must redesign the interface (as you can see there is no place for other types).

    The reverse chord finder can be a good idea...
    I'll try to write this function inn the future...

    I'll post the new release as soon as possible...
    hope you can test it and give me some feedbacks...

    Bye
