I can never find songs. I’ve subscribed to Rockin With the Cross but I can’t figure out how to get the menu to find anything. A friend helped set up a set list and I can’t seem to get out of it back to a main menu to find any other songs. It would be nice if there weren’t 45 useless tutorials. I can’t seemed to find the”one” that might actually help me and I don’t have enough time to watch all of the 10 min videos.
Pls could you add that. I’d like to access my library of songs from any device. Right now that does that doesn’t seem easily available
Gone are the days when I needed to bring several thick and heavy 3 ring binders and a music stand to the gig. OnSong does it all including playing backup tracks to my songs. Just when I think OnSong has thought of everything they continue to improve this app. Worth much more then they charge for it. I won’t go anywhere without my IPad and OnSong!
I tried to keep all my chord charts neatly in a binder and was still completely cluttered and disorganized. OnSong has not only organized my chord charts considerably, but has given me complete peace of mind. I’m no longer scrambling through a binder hoping I find the song I need in the right key. It’s all digitally in one place on my iPad. I love it!
I’ve been using OnSong for leading worship since the first gen iPad and couldn’t imagine NOT having it! Whether I’m leading or playing for someone else, OnSong is always in use for me. The ability to import high quality charts from WorshipReady is a big plus too! I’m simply confused why anyone uses any other app for worship!
Without support for OneDrive the app is useless to me. If you have all your music stored at OneDrive you will not be able to import songs in to this app. It forces you to use Dropbox or Google Drive. So for me purchasing this app was thrown out money.
I LOVE the potential of OnSong, and I use it daily. But I can’t rely on it for live performances, due to the autoscroll time not saving properly. Frequently (not every time; maybe half) I’ll play the intro and first verse, maybe first chorus, and realize I can’t keep up because OnSong decided to change my 4 minute song to 2:30 (not exact numbers, but it’s ALWAYS much faster than what I set). Fix that one issue, it’s a five star app despite other shortcomings and possibilities. As/is, it’s a decent practice tool and a great songbook, but it’s not stageworthy. Edit: I just opened Weather With You by Crowded House for the first time in a few months. The time had reset to 27 minutes. So I guess it’s not always faster after all. PLEASE FIX THIS! Edit 2/18/2019 I have a screen shot where the header says I’m playing Dock of the Bay, next up is No One Is To Blame, and the actual song on screen I’m trying to play is Crush by Dave Matthews. When I hit the edit pencil to fix an error in Crush, Dock of the Bay opens. When I swipe to the next song to play 2:58 Dock of the Bay, it scrolls at about Crush’s 4:00 scroll speed. When I swipe back to fact check that Crush time for this review, Here Comes The Sun opens! This is a mess. PLEASE FIX!
Awesome idea with huge potential but cumbersome and poor support. I want to share my songs between 2 devices but I can’t get the songs to sync. I have songs by key on my iPad but it will not show the keys in my iPhone. Double work and just not worth the hassle.
Importing double byte characters in a Word document fails and yields gibberish. The app SERIOUSLY needs to support two columns layouts both internally Update: with all the promises to “someday” provide an update that provides two column layouts, still YEARS later no visible effort to make it happen. Meanwhile all kinds of features I can’t use. I can only use the most basic features of displaying a chart and I have to convert it to a pdf to do it. It’s only basically useable for me. I have supported this app buying every version, add on and feature but this developer has their own agenda to bloat this app with “everything else”. Really frustrating.
I’ve had this app for almost 5 years now. As a singer it’s invaluable. All my songs are available at any time, and I can link my background tracks right to the lyric. Don’t look any further. TE.
