  • Insufficient documentation

    By Peterguzinya
    I’d like to use the MIDI editor, but there’s insufficient documentation on how to use it and more importantly what it can’t do. Example, I want to do program changes to my Yamaha Montage and if I want a bank other than General Midi, it doesn’t make the change. I also had to waste a lot of time getting it to work with my Bluetooth midi interface. Update: Although I figured out the reason I could not change patches on my Montage and I have viewed the videos, I still maintain my original title. What I’ve also learned is that it isn’t just OnSong lacking in their documentation, Yamaha is also to blame. In addition, OnSong support is also lacking. You don’t get the folks who really know the product, but rather a messenger. I guess I’m just old school as a retired IT specialist of 43+ years.
  • Great program. Eliminate big heavy song book

    By Duracel777
    Great program. Support service is excellent. Kendra very quickly answered my support question. The recommendation worked great🤙🤙🤙 I have a lot of people at our ukulele club using OnSong. I am so happy with the product and excellent support. I only recommend OnSong to our members and other clubs that ask when they see us setup our iPads. They have their big book that loves to make their stand fall over and the music fall on the floor.
  • Full of features and bugs

    By MusicMark
    I want to like this program for its many cool features, but it’s slow, buggy, and crashes frequently. And when it crashes, my set lists disappear. Lovely. The only saving grace is automatic backups which I then re-import. I only bought OnSong to collaborate with a friend who is using it. But I think I will go back to SongSheet Pro — not as many features, but it’s stable and reliable.
  • Quirky!!!!!

    By Mad in St Louis
    I love the program when it works! Has a mind of its own to often. It needs stability! I use pdfs and word docs. Zoom has mind of it's own. It won't scroll to bottom of page half the time! When you need it the most it fails! I'm looking for something that works. I am so done with this app! And yes, I'm using the latest version. And yes, my iPod is up to date too!

    1.999 has a bug on both my iPhone 8 and iPad 2 it keeps changing to 5 string bass from 4 string when trying to Change chord fingering. I was so pleased with this app until now.
  • No words // Amazing!

    By j_smit2
    This app is hands down amazing. I’ve been using it for nearly 5 years now and it I now one of the sole reasons I have an iPad. I know you are thinking “this app is so expensive” if you are looking for an app to organize all your music, transpose keys, change keys according to capo, and organize set lists for your whole band then for real invest the money. The OnSong staff is supper supportive and have always gotten right back to me if I have any questions. The app is very clean and easy to use, yet still jam packed with amazing features. I use this app on stage at least twice a week and I wouldn’t change a thing. I can’t play without it now. BUY IT. It might expensive but in the grand scheme of things it is so so so worth it. I recommend it to any instrumentalist, ESPECIALLY if you are performing on stage.
  • An Utterly Unintuitive App.

    By dank58
    I have struggle with this app for a very long time. I even paid extra for add-ons. I wanted to like and use it. Unfortunately, it is nowhere near ready for Prime Time. I have since switched to another app that easily and effortlessly loads my sheet music, performs edits on the fly and scrolls reliably for live use. I will never go back to OnSong.
  • Awesome tool!

    By Tutu Luv
    Very intuitive and provides specific tools musicians need and want. Recommended OnSong to all my musicians friends who were blown away by it when they saw it. Our worship team’s sound man downloaded the app on the spot during our morning sound check. Great product!
  • Apple Pencil issues

    By Paperfiddler
    I’ve absolutely loved this app until last month, when my Apple Pencil went from working really well for notes on PDF’s, to jumping all over the screen like crazy. I was in a very important rehearsal situation, and almost got fired because I couldn’t get my entrances written in the right places. The screen would move around while I tried to make markings. So at the job, I was totally dependent on other people to show me when to play and sing. It was really bad, and could’ve been financially devastating. For the future, I’d love to see actual music notation option added to the program, even if it’s small scale. There are times when I’d really like to make even a sticky note with a notated phrase on it. As it is, I type in the phrase using the letters (which is very limited). Even a staff option, where I could just write in the notes with the Apple Pencil...assuming the pencil can write a circle and a line without shooting diagonally across the page...
  • Amazing Program

    By Ron Gerard
    I want to tell you that as a programmer, I am very amazed by how well OnSong was written. It does so much for being so compact. While I watch the videos, I keep wondering who is the one that brought OnSong to the level that it does so much, and interacts with other existing software, like Google, DropBox, and uploading from a webpage that can take so many various forms. Cudos to all of you. I recommend your product to all the musicians that I talk with. I can only believe that your company will be very successful. Ron Gerard
