    I feel like I was robbed of $25. I keep going around in circles to find the songs I already preloaded and they have disappeared. This is the worst app I have ever used and I absolutely want my money back! The more I use this app, the angrier I’m becoming. You should be embarrassed of what you’ve created.

    So far can't figure how to load library.
  • Most features are additional purchases.

    Pretty much everything that sets this app apart from the free and/or less expensive apps ends up requiring an extra purchase. Not cool. The website conveniently doesn't mention which features are an additional cost on its features page. I will be betting a refund of my $30 entrance fee, and continuing my research.

    This app is sooo difficult I did 3 hours of work. It froze then backed up an empty OnSong. I paid 19.99 and can’t believe how complicated it is, problem is it claims to does exactly what I want it to do. It just Willy nilly deletes everything in there for no reason
  • Best App of its Kind

    I’ve been using OnSong for a while now for our church band and I’m continually amazed at the functionality and options. It save me so much time and effort. Easy song entry? Check. Transpose with a couple clicks? Check. Scroll songs wirelessly? Check. Play a metronome or backing track? Check. And this just scratches the surface. Down the road, I’d love to see a multitrack player built in that would let me load individual stems, turn on or off tracks depending on who I have playing on a given Sunday, adjust track levels, etc. Even if that never happens, this app gets five stars from me. Well worth the price.

    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!
  • The app is awesome but...

    Be careful with the potential bugs that can ruin a concert, especially when Apple releases a new IOS. Just delay the update of the IOS to allow these bugs to be discovered and fixed, especially when your band depends on OnSong is your primary source of music info when playing live. Otherwise, this is a great app.
  • A must have app !

    OnSong is a game changer for musicians. It seams like it’s been forever that I carried around 2 folders full of music . One with everything I had available and one to transfer to for the service at church. Getting rid of the bulky music stand and replacing it with a mic stand is by far a better look . The app is easy to use and can also trigger my pads live sounds cross fading them in and out , and all I do is change to the next song . A foot controller is all you need and many are available. It’s time to make the switch to OnSong and leave the paper behind.
