Latest updated forced a logged out session.
I use this app daily, but this app is not tailored for my use. I would like the ability to select text so it can be copied. Currently the only way to do this is to open it up in safari. I also would like the ability to search within a song/lyric.
And lastly there are several problems related to when music is streamed via airplay prior to launching the app. Is there anyway to use the native music app's controls?
For now this app gets 3 stars, address the issues above and it will be updated to 5.
Love this app
Now it's mobile ! This is awesome. But I would love if you able to choose the exact part of the song when you reading the lyrics so you can sing along and eventually memorize the lyrics word for words. But other than that this app is gold and will NOT be getting deleted from my phone any time soon.
Please add search history or an option to favorite lyrics and go back to look at them later. This would be super helpful
