OnSong App Reviews

  • The app is awesome but...

    By Three CC
    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 !

    By faith musician
    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.
  • Musician’s Friend

    By BJ Iphone 6
    Extremely useful app for musicians of all skill levels. Store and organize all your music. Create sets for gigs or Sunday morning services. Change the key in seconds. Share sets and songs with friends and group members. Import songs and chords using Dropbox. And these are only some of the many features. If you play an instrument you owe it to yourself to take a look at OnSong.
  • Nice features, but DMX is not working right

    By Loegaire
    I like most of the features, but the Scenes add-on has an ArtNet DMX function that seems to be faulty in operation and crashes if too many things are configured in the lights editor. I confirmed things were set up correctly on my ArtNet DMX rig by using QLab on a MacBook Pro - QLab works perfectly for a 7 trait light fixture, but OnSong has yet to deliver. If I get good customer service, I intend to update this review and improve the rating.
  • Poor support

    By Wimwamwo
    Requested specific help received generic replay. Problem is OnSong no longer appears as a choice in iPad 2 to save. Please advise.
  • Foot pedal issues

    By gigrfvhgvhy
    Does not work good with foot pedals
  • 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.
