The Chord Dictionary is extremely comprehensive, with every possible chord laid out in an easy access menu (see first screenshot). Very easy to use, easy to change the root and the inversion and there are staff and keyboard images to display the chord while it is played. Play the chord or play it as an arpeggio!

Like I said, there is the option to simply things so the user is not overwhelmed.
