Ratings and Reviews
This app has all the marks of excellent design plus content. There is almost no learning curve. The mark if a gear app is that you find yourself completely engaged in content and use, and nit laboring with controls and menus. It beautifully captures the wonder of the original split-leaf Psalter which was the ability to apply different tunes to the lyrics. And there are even live recordings for some. The developer has done a remarkable thing—he has made available one if the richest worship books in Church history in a way that glorifies the Word of God.
A wonderful app for singing this Psalter - beautifully done! I only wish it had a daily Psalm calendar to facilitate singing a portion daily!
The ability to choose a variety of tunes for each section is wonderful as is the ability to hear a congregation sing each section of the Psalter according to the tune assigned by the Comprehensive Psalter!
Great app with some drawbacks
This is a very useful app with two major drawbacks.
1) It’s wonderful that the psalms each come with suggested tunes, about three options apiece, but I wish the reverse were true. I want to search by tune and see the top three psalm paring suggestions, because surely certain tunes are better suited to some texts and not suited to others
2) The live recordings are dreadful. There’s one shouty man who drowns everyone out. He’s not even good. He’s shouty.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
