    By Music to the end
    I am a board certified music therapist and I use this app on a daily basis in my work with patients and families in hospice care. It makes my music easily accessible and portable. I’ve also been very impressed with the support help provided when needed. Kudos to those who created and keep improving this app!

    Onsong has really made things easier for our band getting rid of the heavy bags of a paper library. Their continued efforts to improve and stay up to date shows their dedication to this app. Thanks Onsong Crew
  • Wow! Just Wow!

    I was an early adopter of iPad-ified music library. It was a tremendous benefit immediately when I did it 5+ years ago. Unfortunately, the company that developed my initial app went out of business before fixing a backup problem that lost about 1/3 of the database if you ever had to restore from iCloud or iTunes. So here I am, years invested in my library of 900+ pieces later and just one hardware glitch away from a disaster. The choice: migrate my library to a new app or go back to notebooks! So I decided to look at the industry leader: OnSong which all my friends (later adopters) now use...and Wow! Wish I had changed sooner. The smart design, the range of features, and really good ideas that have gone into this app are amazing. It works great and my migration isn’t going to be as bad as I thought it would be. I’m still migrating, will be for a while, but I already know I’m going to love using OnSong when I get there. I’d highly recommend spending some time thinking about how you want to organize your library. There are a number of ways to do it and time spent ahead of time, will save hours later. Great work OnSong. I’m really looking forward to working with you for a long time to come,
  • not user friendly

    By rock17weascx
    very poor and unfriendly user interface support responds once per day with useless help like telling you to make sure you have the latest version. duh! Started asking for help July 29. Today is August 2. , still no answer of any use. Still can not use onsong. Btw, I tried using online support where people had similar problems, the supplied link was old. when i sent them a screen shot of the help file they said basically- o sorry that needs to be updated. they supplied a new link which was also useless and contained no information to help the problem
  • Great app

    By Paulbartolini
    I’m a working musician and find the OnSong app to be the greatest thing in my musical arsenal. It is not only good for live gigs, but also fantastic as a learning tool. I highly recommend this app for beginners to seasoned pros. What I would like to see is the ability to smartcast the screen onto a larger monitor that would be placed near my wedge for reading lyrics without having the IPad mounted on my mic stand. That would make me look more professional and let my old eyes more able to read the lyrics and chord changes to the 500 songs my cover band does.
  • Complete GARBAGE !

    I have worked with this app now for 2 years +🙄 At first I was blown away, but as OS X updates, OnSong fails I know have a $25 lemon... Thanks OnSong ! Folks DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS !
  • So good...still!

    I’ve been using onsong for almost 10 years. Each update adds more functionality and support. Also I don’t realize it (because it’s non existent) that this app is one of the most stable and bug free apps on my iPad. Just works is definitely the way to describe it. I’ve used it with many team members and have not been disappointed. Easy for anyone to start using quickly, but offers many robust features for the most advanced. Well worth the price and the in app purchases. Also great support. Couldn’t figure out a hugely advanced feature, support showed me how to solve it. It was user error. Love you guys.
  • Wow, perfect page turning app!

    By 44dzl
    I am a singer and guitarist in a rock band. We are always adding new material so I wanted a page scrolling app that shows the lyrics and chords. OnSong is it! It is easy to use and intuitive. Functions perfectly for what I need.
