Incredibly complex but a lot of features
This app is very capable but complex. There are easier apps. Try songbook as an example.
OnSong is very good at going beyond just flipping pages and controlling things - background tracks, lighting, and so on. You can also control display of songs across multiple devices at the same time. Depends on how important all this remote control that is to you.
Sharing content (like songs) among multiple musicians is possible but quite a chore to set up and manage. You have to keep importing songs. In some other products they just appear and just update as you change them. The documentation on sharing is poorly written and confusing. Read it, but be prepared to do a lot of trial and error before you get it to work.
Also the desktop versions are a bit of a joke. All I wanted to do was to use the desktop to edit and import songs. But you have to have your ipad on with OnSong running just to get it to open. They say they will someday have a true desktop application but they’ve been saying this for a while, I would not count on it any time soon.
In summary use this app if you need the advanced control features. Otherwise consider easier alternatives.
I recommend OnSong do work to improve their interface. They obviously have capable engineers, but if the engineers build a feature and people struggle to use it then the feature is useless. Creating lots of documentation or videos is nice but should not be necessary.
Thank you OnSong
OnSong team has done it again! Amazing update and new features I didn't even think I needed but has already improved my performance!!! Thank you so much!!!
What a difference OnSong has made not just to my life as a worship leader but that of over 20 other great musicians in our church. Our sister church is the biggest in Liverpool, England and has church plants right across Europe. It was while playing over at our Athens church plant 2 years ago that I was told about OnSong. Up until then I used to carry hundreds of sheets of paper songs around with me which was always a nightmare. Your superb app has changed everything. I love it more than anything else that I have on my iPad. It has made me more relaxed while leading which helps me to focus more on God than shifting bits of paper around.
Could not live without it!
OnSong is an amazing piece of software! It is not just an app it is so much more. The only thing better than this program is the OnSong support team. They are quick to respond and go above and beyond to help and teach me more about this software!
Another amazing update! I use this at least once a week and sometimes more when I'm out jamming with friends or playing in church. This doesn't just show chords and lyrics from a limited source, but let's you write your own stuff and the project that on a wall to sing! So many features it makes other apps look boring.
