Don't waste your time


This app is not very good. Only worked part time with Dropbox and has not sync to my Dropbox now in over six months. Can't seem to get help from the company. Have sent several e-mails about the problems I have and get no response from them. It only works part of the time on stage as well. Can't get through the night with a set without having to shut all iPads down and rebooting. This takes several minutes that I don't have. Found this to be a very poor app. Would not buy again. Looking for a app that will work now.

Great until you need to restore the app

Great app for live lyric help until I had to restore it from Dropbox. My iPad got wiped, I figured no problem it’s all backed up on Dropbox. No matter what I do I can’t get the year of songs back. I can see the folders and songs in Dropbox but nothing I do will get them back. The worst part is that I re-entered about 40 songs this morning and when I started the app this afternoon all my entries were gone. So It won’t sync my old songs and it won’t save new ones. A complete waste of time. No answer from support either.

Cool but pricey


I have the demo of the app, and reached maximum songs. I was hoping I could delete some I wasn't going to use and ad others, but after deleting, it wouldn't let me ad more. I'm not sure I wanna shell out 20 bucks for it though. If it were cheaper, I might buy. It does seem a little slow to respond at times. It does have cool features, but the price is holding me back
