I was in a lesson with a teenage student when I saw they were writing down the lyrics to a new song using an app. Within the app she was able to look up rhyming words, synonyms, antonyms, download beats, and more. I was really excited by the idea of this app and had to share it with you all! I have not personally used it, but it looks really interesting!
The App is called MOGUL and is for the iPhone and iPad.
The following is part of a description from http://prmac.com/release-id-46722.htm
MOGUL is a simple to use, yet fully featured songwriting app. Songwriter’s can use the built in reference tools to define words and find rhymes, synonyms and antonyms. Words can be collected and saved in an idea bank for later use. It allows users to create and store all of their lyrics in one place and for the serious songwriter it provides the ability to easily search and sort through hundreds of documents.
MOGUL comes equipped with three vocal tracks for recording audio and one beat track for playback. Singers can buy, download or import beats from within MOGUL for use as backing tracks when recording vocals.
Each track has its own volume fader allowing users to get the proper mix before bouncing and sharing the finished song.
