  • Stuck with it now..

    By Ronnitone
    I liked all the features they advertised.. I thought would be easier to type lyrics and chords in google docs then import.. it says your u can Import direct from docs and you can but after that won’t allow me to edit it like one I started a song from scratch in OnSong.. And all the nice features like console to allow you to edit on a computer is $9.99 more then another feature drawing $2.99 really... the freakin app was $24.99 now I guess I’m stuck with it.. I’d rather uninstall and get refund.
  • Using for two years

    By PKBell04
    All in all, it’s great for as you say ... managing lots of songs, very flexible in how you can put them in, etc. where i still find it a bit “sticky” is when my duo partner and I try to “pair” the two together so I can control the list and see what I see. More than once it’s not worked 100%. We carry our own WiFi HotSpot for this purpose, even. So that still needs a little work IMHO. Also... when I back up a book of songs, load it on Google Drive and he tries to import, OnSong will freeze and only way to get it working again is completely uninstall and reinstall. This has been the case in both iOS and now 12. He has an iPad Air Gen 2 and I have the iPad Pro. So it works great if we don’t get too fancy. 😁
  • Editor shutting down

    By MichaelDwyer
    The editor shuts down frequently when in use with my iPad. Everything is up to date but still having issues. Error message: Getting songs from the device with a query string failed. I get this error message a lot. It’s frustrating.
  • Awesome app

    By mactimusprime
    I always recommend this to fellow musicians and worship leaders. It has some really great features from on the fly transposing and capos. I couldn’t give 5 stars because some of the other bugs like rwtc subscriptions not keeping my login info and I’d like to see the ability to move chords easier. With out using a text file edit. Something where I can just highlight it and scoot it over without affecting the chords around it. Overall it’s an awesome app.
  • Great app but this latest update...?

    By PuroPinolero
    When trying to import a song from lets say Dropbox it only imports the tittle and i cant see the rest of the song on the file sheet::: when trying to project it or not even on the iPad itself.. please fix it ASAP
  • Excellent app

    By dkforward
    As a performing singer songwriter, this app has become indispensable. Perhaps the best benefit of all is that it is constantly and intelligently updated, and a user can beta test as well. Support responds very quickly as well.
  • What an App.

    By Sam49r
    I love this App, purchased 08-2013, use it weekly. I was jamming with friends and notice my buddy looking at an iPad, as I enquired I was amazed. Needed to have. A friend and I have a 2 piece band, "Antique Road Show" by the name you can tell were not spring chickens. My buddy has binders of music, when we make a play list, I take a snap shot of his music sheet upload to Dropbox, import to Onsong, done deal. If someone requests a song we don't have I find it on Safari and download. I recommend this App. highly...
  • Not happy

    By To kool to use this
    Crashes constantly. Navigation confusing. Song sharing not reliable. Expensive.
  • Longtime Favorite App!!!

    By Scotty n co.
    Having used OnSong for many years I can’t say enough good things about it. Even though I don’t come close to utilizing all of the features, it is one of the most powerful apps on all my devices. Additionally the support is amazing as well! I bought this app when it was more than half its current price, and would be willing to pay for upgrades (however they are always included), I think it is worth twice what they ask. *grateful it isn’t however. I am writing this while having a support issue, inspired by the experience. Any questions or issues I have had in the past have all been handled with amazing (specifically chosen the word amazing) customer service. There are 3 apps I go to constantly as a classroom music teacher and this is one of them!
  • Brilliant.

    By Chufichufiboy
    Excellent software. Love how it works so well with BeatBuddy, once I'd figured out the MIDI coding. Done many gigs over last 4 weeks and couldn't be happier with OnSong.
