Fortamento by Yuri Laskin

Yuri Laskin released Fortamento, a chord progression generator with more depth than similar apps. In addition to it coming up with a 4 chord progression, you can tweak the chords in a piano roll to make sure they suit your needs. Once you have something you like you can then export the melody as MIDI files.

It just hit iTunes this morning, so it might take a while for it to propagate to your regional App Store.
For iPad please.

Hi Mike,

It does work on iPad, just loads the iPhone version in portrait orientation on it.

@MikeM because someone already registered with the name Mike. The site won't let unregistered users post with registered user's names, to avoid spoofing.

It is a rare occurrence, but there have been troubles like this in the past. Fortunately these measures seem to be working because it hasn't happened at all since switching over to discchord v3.
