SIK Ionic App

Fourth iteration of a personal project to store the songs I've learned over the years on my smartphone.

More information about the app and screenshots can be found on my website


As soon as I'm asked to play a song on my guitar I seem to instantly forget everything I've ever learned. This app is a way of quickly listing the songs I know along with lyrics and chords to give me some inspiration. Also useful to refresh on those old songs I haven't played in a while.

The second purpose of this app is to act as my version of the 'MVC Todo' app in that it is the implementation of the same idea across different frameworks, to test out capabilities.

NOTE: The app is initially empty. No song content (e.g. audio/lyrics/chords) are stored in the app itself due to possible copyright issues. All content added by the user.


  • Offline local song database storage via PouchDB (IndexedDB or WebSQL)
  • Real-time synchronisation with Cloudant service (resumes whenever phone becomes online)
  • Add song lyrics (with online search)
  • Add chords sections & song lyrics (with online search)
  • Guitar chord visualisation on fretboard via jTab
  • Guitar chord playback on chord press (using the Web Audio api)
  • Attach song artwork via iTunes API
  • Song filtering


This is app is built upon the Ionic Framework and CLI. Please visit them for more information on getting started.
