  • Worship Leader’s gold

    By @Jona_Betsumiya
    Man this app is pretty brilliant and is a nice way to store all your worship songs in one place. You can easily share and receive other peoples songs and its honestly pretty awesome. A couple things is I wish that it could support the number system And that I could make columns so I can put different translations of songs because I serve in a bilingual church But other than that pretty awesome!!

    This is an amazing product. Thank you for your dedication and support ! I’m a performing musician in a duo/trio called Taplow and I take every opportunity to show other musicians about this superb product. Thanks again for making my music more enjoyable.
  • Last updated brought major glitches

    By Spotniq
    I love OnSong, however I’ve grown increasingly frustrated with the up since the last update. I input 99% of my music by typing it in using an external apple keyboard.. I use split screen A LOT so I have OnSong on the left and Dropbox on the right while typing... it now glitches every time I have this set up, for some reason I can’t scroll while in edit mode (sometimes it will scroll but it will be really really choppy), and if I use shortcut cmd + tab to switch between apps it also glitches by wanting to bring up the iPad screen keyboard .. I hide it and it keeps coming up.. sometimes it completely takes me out of the edit screen and when I go back in, it says something about an error occurred and asks if I want to recover my changes. I have songs (from my iTunes library) attached to my chord charts so I can play along and practice.. when I press the play button and want to pause the song it doesn’t pause.. it somehow activates the music app in the background and I have to get out of the app and pause the song in the music app in order to pause.. I didn’t have any of these issues prior to this las update. Again I love this app it has changed the way I play at church.. but man.. these glitches are making it extremely difficult to work. Please fix !! I have the 9.7” iPad Pro so I know it’s not my iPad.. all other apps work flawlessly.
  • Works great...when it wants to.

    By Cassie.0986
    My church worship team uses this app on a biweekly basis, and it’s so convenient when we get this app to work properly. We have noticed several bugs. Once the songs have been imported to the library (from Dropbox), if ever we want to pull up a song for a different set list, a black screen with just the title appears. This is very frustrating, especially when we have last minute set changes. Also, when “beaming” the set list to others in the group, the app is not able to pick up the other users’ accounts. This happens only sometimes. We’ve tried closing and reopening the app and powering off the iPad, but nothing seems to work. We’ve used this app for 2 years and its never been fixed. I’d rate it 5 stars if not for these inconveniences.
  • Ridiculously complicated, long learning curve

    By imel inox
    It is obvious that much time and effort went into making a user interface this bad. Even after having used it previously, when I set it aside for a few months, getting started again is taking hours of watching videos and trial and MUCH error. Argggg!
  • Best On The Market

    By travwoody
    This program is one reason that I bought my iPad. Being someone who puts together a set list every week of the year, it is important that I have good tools that provide flexibility, efficiency, and dependability to my onstage performance. Using this program with Bluetooth pedals allows me to play guitar and sing, concentrating on the performance and not on page turning and figuring out where I am on the song. Well worth the purchase and with the constant updates to improve the program and keep it relevant, I have seen nothing better on the market, and I have tried many.
  • It’s good...but still needs work

    By jielimiya
    Needs one drive support and 2 column page support. Also the web server glitches out easily. Lost my work a number of times that way.
  • Great App! Great Support!

    By nyneny
    I had used this app for 2 years with no problems! Recently, the safari add-on would not work. I emailed OnSong’s support and within 30 minutes they had responded. Right after the email they had released a new update and fixed the issue! I would recommend this app to everyone!
  • OnSong is ESSENTIAL!

    By crooner
    OnSong is intuitve, esy to use and will immediately prove its worth to any msucian in need of a way to organize their collection of charts. What will never cease to amaze you is how many features this incredibe app holds just under its simple interface. Anything you can think of it likely already does... you simply only need to make use of its countless funtions. It i SO much more than just a replacement for your binders of sheet music. I cannot work without it and the one issue I've had with the app, the development team replied within hours that a new version that corrected my issue was already in the pipeline and was released within 3 days. It's this simple... if you gig, you need this app.
  • Great Update! Works again with older devices

    By Nitpick Pete
    Has not worked well with iPad2 for nearly a year; multiple start-up crashes before it would run, and then very slow and jittery. Finally had to jump ship and go with a different app for the live shows. Pleased to see the update and it seems to be much smoother, now. OnSong is a superior app IMHO, and am anxious to update the library a start using again.
