Ratings and Reviews

Absolutely the best musicians tool with the best support


You won't find a better tool to display your lyrics, lead sheets or sheet music. The support from the author is just as good as the product is. This product was good enough for me to buy an iPad just for use with this tool (and I'm not a fan of Apple products, although they do make good hardware).

An App that is way ahead of its time!


Been using this app for several years.
Have almost 1000 songs synced to my Korg PA3x Songbook. What a time saver when performing! With Bluetooth Midi LE hardware, it works perfectly wireless with my IPad Pro. No need for a camera kit. I use Yamaha UD-BT01 for the hardware. Quicco Mi.1 works too.

Don't let the cost scare you. It is worth every dime!

I had tremendous support too on communicating to my Roland VAccordion, fr4x bank registers changes
Tried other apps similar, but Songbook + much user friendly.

Works very well


I wanted an app that would play backing tracks on my iPad and this one does it beautifully. I also like the fact that I can put charts with lyrics and chords in which means no more loose leaf binders with pages falling out. I started out with the Lite version which enables you to try a full featured version of the app (10 songs) before you commit to buying the large version which is quite expensive compared to most apps for the iPad. Now that I have it, I think the money was well-spent.

I have been using this for over a year with great success. The developer is very sensitive as far as listening to ideas for improving the app. I use it in conjunction with an automated turning device called AirTurn BT-105 which makes this app even better. I think it's a great app if you need to play backing tracks and have charts to read.
