What's New in Version 1.998
We're continuing to make OnSong better with bug fixes and new features. Please check out the release notes for this version at: http://onsongapp.com/releases/1.998/
This app is fantastic!...I use it all the time for worship planning and leading. I would encourage anyone to give it a try. Also, ignore the one star reviews...not sure what the deal is with those peeps but this app is awesome. One thing I've learned over the past few years of using the app is that Jason and his team are very committed to listening to the users and finding and squashing bugs. This can be seen in the huge list of enhancements, fixes and new features that now seem to come monthly.
Of course, there are some things I'd love to have, one of which would be automatic syncing of my song library between my devices (not the onsong media library). ...there is always something to wish for nowadays with apps...
That said, over the past few years of using this app it has completely changed the way I interact with my music and my teams! Great job Onsong team!
For all it boasts, Onsong does not deliver all that it claims. The full spectrum of options to edit your music (chord highlighting, chord color change, capo adjustment, font size/style change, etc.) is only available if you type in the music yourself, or convert an imported file with their song "editor". Converting mean the song will become an omelette you have to unscramble to be able to use. A real drag when they have quick upload links to sites like SongSelect right in the app to avoid the extra work. When I asked Support what the issue was, I'm told that certain PDFs don't convert properly. Well, they should have said NO PDFs convert, because every route I've tried from (Word, Pages, documents from both saved as PDF, and SongSelect) has failed to convert (these uploads convert to dashes and semicolons) resulting in a complete rewrite needed to make the music usable. When music is uploaded from SongSelect, the only enhancement options given is key change. Yay...
Other than that, the app is a document viewer. I've paid $15 for a $2 app that's a whole lot of work.
As a worship team leader and also as a lead guitarist, I've been trying onsong with the team for a few weeks now. This has been an amazing program. We're just delving into some of the finer features, but so far it has been five stars all the way.
There are so many features that we haven't even tried including the new lighting controls. I can't wait to give them a try in the near future.
We have been using iPads on stage for quite a while, but onsong gives me the ability to control the other iPads, scroll the music at the correct rate, and even adds a metronome to keep us at the proper beat. This is all incredible and really helps keep us together as a team. I can't wait to explore many of the other features including loops and lights.
