No singing, only instrumental
I must have missed this when reading the description and other reviews. I just assumed there would be vocals included, but this is only the instrumental track. It’s still helpful but I wish I would have known this before purchasing.
I will say that they have done a pretty good job of correcting and improving this app and responding to the other reviews. Just search the Version History and you will see they have added tempo control, the ability to listen to all four parts or just the alto etc... They’ve also worked out the bugs for adding songs to the favorite list.
Now, I’m really hoping they will consider adding a vocal option for those of us who would like to hear actual voices singing.
Nice job with this. Great for personal use and private devotion. Only suggestion: add the option to adjust the TEMPO for the musical files. Some of them are far too fast which makes it difficult to sing. It also cuts out the reflective element of the singing, if you're just barely keeping up with the racing tempo of the music. Also there are just some songs that you might *want* to sing slower or faster.
Worked great on my 10.5 iPad until a day ago
This app has been wonderful until it was updated for the 12.5 iPad. Now it keeps crashing. I hope this can be resolved soon.
