    I can't imagine my career without this wonderful program! It gets better all the time too-they keep working and working....and they always replay-and take suggestions. Excellent job!
  • 35 stars!! For excellent customer service

    By sdfffsfsdsdrdber5bn
    Awesome app! very many features! Support staff are fast and very helpful. The app may be considered moderately "pricey" as far as apps go, but worth every penny. I have recommended this app to several other musicians.
  • Love love love

    Man this app is a lifesaver for any kind a musician. I haven't even started to touch the surface of capability with midi and all these other functions but just the chord charts alone and being able to set up set list is amazing. Transposing is a breeze as well.
  • Outstanding App

    By steve_cosio
    I bought the iPad app and the Console for iMac and reformatting my Word docs is a breeze. Tech support is excellent, too.
  • Revised Review. This app rocks!!

    By WTS1964
    I submitted a negative review earlier. I am revising it to give this app 5 stars! Once I figured out that I have to use Safari to import songs from email attachments, it's working perfectly! I love Onsong and I'm looking forward to exploring all its other features. Apologies to the the developers and staff for the negative review. It was my error!
  • Works very well for a worship team

    By donjones777
    I use this app to store, distribute and print our chord charts each week. Corrections to charts are easy and fast. One major draw back is the lack of two up display capability. That means a musician must use a foot pedal to scroll through a song rather than having two sheets in view.
  • Great app!

    By RickNewsome
    I have been using Onsong for about 6 years and it has been a big boost for performances. I still see people using binders and dealing with all the problems they present and recommend OnSong every time. I have over 800 songs in my all songs, and have created sets for many performances. OnSong just keeps getting better and it is worth many times the small cost for the app.
  • Great App & Support

    By Old Seriously Retired Guy
    I love this app and ALL of the features it offers. To be honest I've only used 25% of what OnSong provides. It has helped our little group actually get more "playing" instead of trying to manage songs/ setlists. Customer service has also been very responsive. I've had occasion to need their help a few times (usually operator error) and they have usually responded within 24 hours. I would seriously recommend this to anyone serious about playing and who needs an effective way to manage their songs. I've also purchased the OnSong Console and that's made everything so much easier to do. From adding/editing songs to adding backingtracks. Also, the ability to transfer a song directly from Safari to OnSong is, to me, worth the price. Great Job OnSong
  • Unamazing at best

    By Lavrgs
    Tries to do too much without success. Maybe if someone had all the song dialed in and all you had to was download them you might be praising. But when you make changes in Dropbox and the song doesn't have the updates when imported it's time to get the software testers fired up. I renamed a folder in Dropbox and it is still showing the old name...tick tick tick is it ever going to see the change...? Not tonight!
  • Not user friendly

    By 2000jimp
    I can't get the app to change keys. Unclear instructions make it difficult to maneuver. Need a clear tutorial not a link to YouTube videos.
