    Had to update this review because they have been talking about version 2 now for LITERALLY years and yes I know what literally means. I actually wrote them an email a few years ago and asked about a certain features that Tabkeeper has that I was trying to get in Onsong that seemed pretty basic: the ability to do side by side columns. So to have lyrics on the left half of the page and then to have the rest of the song lyrics on the right hand of the page. That's something that's very basic, something I used to do with a type writer back in the day when I had to hand type my chord charts, and something that helps you not have to worry about scrolling while performing. They said? It's coming in version 2 in just a few months! That was, LITERALLY, years ago. And like we see, what we gotten over the years is release 1.99990, 1.99991, 1.99992, etc. I am not sure but o think we've gone through two iOS major updates since that email (iOS 9 and 10). Just release version 2 already! --------------------- Old review They have been talking about version 2 for months. So many things they say will be coming then. Tires of waiting. TabKeeper is what works for me and has pretty much all the features I require.
  • Not an easy app to navigate!

    I find this app very cumbersome. I contacted customer support about issues connecting with the Console and after 24 hrs, still no response. Also, was working ok (although very tedious to set up with song editor) and out of nowhere, the "Convert" button is not available! Really?? Think twice before buying this user-unfriendly app!
  • Love it except it’s missing one thing...

    This app is amazing except, when someone beams you a setlist you can’t save it onto your library. Please make it possible to save the songs that were beamed onto your own music library.

    Easy to link any song chart to iTunes playlists. Nice full-functioning app for iPhone, but I use with iPad. Support is fast and friendly. Backups of entire song library is easy and dependable. Also, get the Consle add on. Jim

    Great App... We use this at our church and all of our music is on our IPads so we save a lot on money on printing. We haven’t printed music for over a year thanks to OnSong. The things I love: 1. Change keys on the fly 2. Keep all my songs in one place 3. No more printing 5. Able to “beam” a set to our band There is so much more but I love about this app, but try it yourself! It’s simple to use and easy to tweak the lyrics and chords if needed.

    I love this app!!! I have used it for over two years playing piano at church and I would say I'm very impressed with it. The customizability is absolutely fantastic and they are constantly improving. Also there is a vast amount of tutorials and information as well as tech-support that can help.

    As long as you do all of your organizational work up front it works. The traditional method of "fix, revise at rehearsals" ends in somewhat of frustration. A great set of features but they are not so clear to get to. Importing songs are best done by going from Dropbox side. Otherwise you may be doing a lot of pecking at the screen. The UI can be clearer and I wish the developer used more of the "onion peeling" approach to guide users through. Drawing on screen is an IAP along with the console mode. I understand features need to be monetized but it's rather unfortunate. I would recommend prospective users thoroughly watch/read their tutorial before purchasing.
  • A few bugs and slow support

    Been using this app for several years. Always had great support and updates. Recently I ran into some bugs importing through PCO. Tech support took days to respond to the first email and never responded to several follow up emails. Disappointed.
  • Love it

    I have used OnSong through 5 generations of iPads. Need I say more. The only problem I had was downloading songs from google to the app. I works great on safari.
