A little bit of history

I started the project around November 2011.  I had been using chordpro file with an app called ‘Song Book‘ on iPad before. I’m just too lazy to carry my iPad all the time just of review the chord sheet so I tried to find the similar app on Android (since I’m using Android phone) and had yet to find one. Then I think why don’t I create one myself? The app is pretty simple and straight forward.

Well currently Song Book is also available on Android. Right now it’s my main competitor :D .


PG Songbook is created by myself alone. But without helps from others, I could not finished my project. I’d like to thank them for their kind supports.

  • Jake Wharton, for his excellent ActionBarSherlock library. Without his library I’d have to deal with a lot of fragmentation between Android versions.
  • Niwat Armsang, Putthabut Nuyung, and Vichean Nateethanasarn for beta testing.
  • Stefano d’Andrea, for being my first customer.  He has shared his idea on how would I improved the PG Songbook.
  • Ta, for her kindly support. Without her, I would not publish the app into Market and keep using it alone.

PG Songbook is developed and tested using these devices along with AVD emulators :-

  • HTC Legend
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab (the original one – 7")
  • Samsung Galaxy Nexus

And tested with

  • Samsung Galaxy Notes
  • Acer Iconia A500
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 10"

And lastly, I’d like to thanks everyone who has downloaded and tried using PG Songbook.
