  • Powerful App

    By Dude of Love
    I recently changed from using a binder and music stand to OnSong. It's a great app! There is a bit of work involved in entering songs, but they make it easy to type it up on a computer, then put it into Dropbox and import into OnSong. I prefer that to typing into the iPad. Once it's in OnSong, you're good to go! Transpose, make notes, use the draw feature to "write" on your tune! It's very powerful!
  • Very good, overkill for many

    By BradPDX
    OnSong has a ton of features. Like, a ton. While some are really useful, they add to the density and complexity of the product. You can have Libraries, Books within Libraries, and Setlists too. It can read straight PDFs, but mainly works using it's own text-based formatting and metadata system. You can assign metadata like artist, key, etc. - but that seems quirky and often doesn't work as advertised. OnSong has a considerable CPU load, too - on a first gen iPad Air, this app struggles to keep up when changing songs or making edits, and battery drain is quite high in use. I know I need a new iPad, but geez, it's just text. Overall, I like OnSong and use it with several other band members in my projects. We all find it good enough, but kinda wonky, and we all get just a bit creeped out by how much the product is preconfigured specifically for the Christian church/worship market. I understand that that's where the money is at the moment, but it's been a bit off-putting to several friends as well.
  • Very Efficient

    By pattymcgee
    Coming from a college music major who plays multiple instruments, this is my favorite app to use with my band and praise teams. Also great way to input original tunes as well. Best music app I have ever purchased for my iPad.
  • Efficient and Reliable!

    By Shauna CZ
    This is my favorite app for consolidating all of my charts and having them accessible on the road! Easy to transpose on the go and it has so many organizational features that keep me on top of things! Also, the support crew is Awesome! I received a timely response and with gracious attitude toward us non-techy folks! Thanks for creating this tool for my peace of mind and His Kingdom!!! Bless you! :)
  • even for a beginner

    I am not a professional musician (but am married to one), I use OnSong to load all my fun ukulele songs on. So much better than carrying around some huge binder. I know I don't know all the bells an whistles this app has, but will learn them. The customer service is GREAT. I don't feel like I'm flailing around, and know I can ask for help if I need it.
  • Great App with Support

    By mikectx
    A lot of nice well thought out features and responsive support. $25 is on the high side for an IOS App but this one is worth it. Highly recommended app
  • Support & performance

    By ttsing4u
    OnSong does more than any other app out there. Because of it's powerful design it's more like learning the difference between Adobe Reader and Adobe Photoshop when compared with just PDF style apps. As such I use this app to run MIDI and control tempo and a lot of other features and to get this far I've had to ask support a LOT of detailed questions. Their patience with me has been exceptional. Their support turn around is very quick. This is the best app for musicians available but there is a big learning curve if you want to go deep.
  • Love this app!!!

    By K. Stockham
    This is, in my opinion, the best app out there for musicians wanting to digitize their sheet music, lyrics, and chord charts. It's a breeze to use and has so many wonderful features that make it ideal for any working musician who does a lot of gigs. OnSong also has great customer service and a fantastic library of tutorial videos to help you get up and running!
  • Amazing AP
