The app is what I needed
I was just getting ready to buy a large tablet to load all my music on like all my music friends have been doing. Then I looked at the prices for today's tablet tech. Well I have already spent enough on stuff like that so I started searching for something to work on my I-Pad. I Gig turned out to be my savior. With I Gig and a holder for my I-Pad I have all my music in 1 place at all my gigs without a 20 lb. book to carry. Thanks I Gig
Once I got all my books scanned and uploaded and matched to the proper index this thing has been awesome. So much easier to trudge over the hills with my tenor when I don't have to carry 50 lbs of books.
Wish it had a way to view two page charts all at once. The external website for index downloads is slow and cumbersome but you only rarely need it.
This app was the only reason I bought an iPad. No regrets. 5 stars.
Good app but can be frustrating
Not the easiest to use. You are required to format files in order to work properly. On a gig, the program can be a nightmare if not set up properly. I have had this program a year or so and can only hope the help files are better. It does have some good features like song search, but getting the books to open on the correct page can be tricky.
