This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Manage huge collections of chord charts and lyrics sheets for your band or worship team on your iPad or iPhone. Quickly pull and reorder set lists and flip from one song to the next with ease. Transpose and highlight chords or change font size with a brush of your finger! Hands-free operation with popular wireless foot pedals or MIDI devices. Playing music has never been more simple with software built for live performance musicians.
You can import songs directly from online sources such as Dropbox, or add your own songs with the built-in editor.

You can also import your existing songs using iTunes file sharing or Dropbox. OnSong supports PDF, Word, Pages, JPG, PNG, TIFF, ChordPro and text file formats.

Had to update this review because they have been talking about version 2 now for LITERALLY years and yes I know what literally means.
I actually wrote them an email a few years ago and asked about a certain features that Tabkeeper has that I was trying to get in Onsong that seemed pretty basic: the ability to do side by side columns. So to have lyrics on the left half of the page and then to have the rest of the song lyrics on the right hand of the page. That's something that's very basic, something I used to do with a type writer back in the day when I had to hand type my chord charts, and something that helps you not have to worry about scrolling while performing.
They said? It's coming in version 2 in just a few months!
That was, LITERALLY, years ago. And like we see, what we gotten over the years is release 1.99990, 1.99991, 1.99992, etc.
I am not sure but o think we've gone through two iOS major updates since that email (iOS 9 and 10).
Just release version 2 already!
They have been talking about version 2 for months. So many things they say will be coming then. Tires of waiting.
TabKeeper is what works for me and has pretty much all the features I require.
Could be so much better
The interface for text editing is clunky. It does not act like any other text editing app. Imported files do not stay in the same format as saved. After several days of non use, upon opening, they are formatted differently. Sometimes reverting to old saves. Saved sets disappear from the list and sometimes are just empty of song files.
