Fakebook - the Real Book
5,000 - 10,000 downloadsAdd this app to your lists
Still, the Fakebook gives you all the tunes you need. In the pocket. And it even looks like The Real Thing.
Fakebook comes preloaded with chord progressions for more than a thousand of the classic jazz standards from The Real Book ed 1,2,3,4,5... Instantly transpose the collection for Bb, Eb or F instruments, or transpose individual songs to suit the soloist or singer. Easily add and edit your own songs or import from other formats (e.g. iRealB / iRealBook or ABC notation). Include your precious originals or paper-napkin fakesheets using the phone's camera, import stored photos or scans from the web. All charts and images can easily be shared using mail, Facebook, Bluetooth and more.
Fakebook is the ultimate tool for practising. The app includes more than 1500 Spotify links for the preloaded Real Book jazz standards. Search Spotify and YouTube with a single click. Or use the built-in metronome, which remembers and synchronizes to the tempo you choose.
Compared with other similar apps:
* Chord syntax, style, font and looks like the original Real Books.
* Adjust screen and font to suit the location, light or your eyes. Enlarge text up to 200% for easier sight-reading. Choose Real Book script, handwriting or an easy to read sans serif font.
* Rotate screen as you like. Landscape format gives great overview - both on phone and tab.
* Extremely compact (the app including 1200 songs is only about 1 MB).
* Local storage, no Internet access needed.
* Low requirements on resources, no strange permissions.
* Direct links to real performances on Spotify and YouTube.
* AirTurn support for easy switching between songs.
Note that this app is in no way associated with iRealB / iRealBook and does not require any other purchase. But Fakebook will import the same chord sequences as supported by the iRealB / iRealBook app and editor, which means that there is a huge collection of free songs available for download and free utilities available for conversion from other formats.
