PerfectGuitarSongBook 1.4 Video Previews

I've created videos showing some of the new features of PerfectGuitarSongBook 1.4, three of which I'd like to present in this post.

The new chord charts system
As you could already see on a screenshot, the new update of PGSongBook comes with a preinstalled chord database than can even be extended by you.



The new notes system
In PerfectGuitarSongBook 1.4, you can add notes for a song and for a playlist entry. They can be viewed from the song screen, in an animated notes view at the top of each song.



Navigating in a playlist
The new version also includes a beautiful way of navigating in a playlist: Just turn the page in an iBook-style-way in order to get to the next or previous song.




These are only some of the great new features the new version brings.
More videos to come.
