UkeMaster for the iPhone is a continuation of Sheep-Entertainment's Ukulele Chord Finder on the internet which has been well known since 1998.

You can choose your own tuning, D-tuning, C-tuning, baritone and more. You can also easily tune your ukulele using the pitch-pipe.

UkeMaster helps you to find both basic and advanced chords, more than 40 chordtypes in total. Basic and advanced chords are colored different so you can easily distinguish them.

You can find more ways to play a chord anywhere on the fretboard by clicking the hand. First the most basic fingering is shown after clicking a chord-type or root-note. By clicking the hand you will find fingerings higher up the fretboard.

The found chord shows you the relative note for every finger-position. This way you learn how the chord is built and teaches you how to built chords yourself. The root-note of the chord is labeled as 'R', the others show you the name of the interval relative to the root-note.

Different chords often overlap. For example C m7b5 can be the same fingering as D# m6. By clicking the chordname you can loop through these chords and see how they are built, eg. where is the root.

You can also find chordnames by clicking positions on the fretboard and see which chord they make. This way you also learn how chords are related to each other. For example start with a C7, click one fret above 5 and get a C7#5.

To hear how the chord sounds simply strum over the soundhole.

You can use UkeMaster in three different orientations. In portrait it shows the chords as in sheet music. In landscape it can show the chords as if you are looking at your own ukulele or as if you are looking at someone else.

Some chords have more than 4 notes in them, but on the ukulele you only have four strings. Therefore some notes are omitted. Mostly the 5th can be omitted without changing the sound very much. Sometimes even the root can be omitted, but especially when there are other instruments around that already play it.

What's New in Version 1.1

A few errors that appeared in newer ios version have been fixed.

Sheep is the word

Aaahh, so great to have access to the wondrous sheep-entertainment uke chord finder in the palm of my hand. The best I've seen so far, and for ALL Ukes!!!
I'm sure it will only get better from here.

4/5 stars

Great first release

This is a really good first release of a really well thought out idea. I am wondering why I bought that chord book now.... Plus I can instantly switch key which is great going back and forth between different Ukuleles.
I like the way you can spell out a chord and the app tells you what it is. Also everything is on one page, no scrolling through the big wheel that so many other apps use. This way is much better for this app.
Ok heres the Cons.. It's a little pricey for an app.. But again cheaper than a chord book and with me always.

Suggestion... Developer needs to make the fretboard dots a little darker or put fret numbers along side the fretboard to make it a quicker read when looking for shapes higher up the neck.
Also include a Tuner with the App, not just a pitch pipe... who the hell uses them anymore..

4/5 stars

Pitch pipe

I disagree with the other comments about the pitch pipe. Yes a tuner would be great, but please don't take away the pitch pipe! A Tiber wouldn't be supported by iPod touch. Also what kind of musician are you if you can't tune by ear? It's good for you.
Otherwise I love the app but think it is too pricey. I put off buying this for a year because I didn't like the price.
