Make a Joyful Noise

Congrats on this first edition! I am playing with it now and it should work well. The only update I might offer is to allow some sort of folders so I could make a Sunday folder and put in it the hymns and service music for that Sunday and then just hit bookmarks.

Still needs some features

Church Publishing does need to specify which books are the Episcopal Editions. This did not come up under a search of "Episcopal" or even "Hymnal". I found it using the search "Hymnal 1982". That is a level of insider, institutional knowledge that does not benefit book sales.

I would also like to see a way to add bookmarks (one poster suggested a folder option for the service hymns of that morning- that's a great idea!) and a full search feature including by number, by tune, by meter, and by first line- basically, the way that I use my hard copy hymnal.

I hope we can see the Hymnbook come out as well- I haven't seen it yet, but I appreciate the full harmonies included in that book.

Thanks so much for being willing to pioneer the hymnals! I have been waiting for them!

Full Search Features

At long last! I have used this on Sunday mornings right in the pew! It is the full Hymnal 1982 Pew Edition.

Regarding earlier ratings, you CAN bookmark hymns and service music for Sunday. Use the Bookmark feature that is available in iBooks! Additionally, you can search by number, tune, and meter. And searching by first line is possible, though it will return the index entry which can easily be clicked and visited.

The hyperlinked indexes are terrific. Tune Name, Composer, First lines…it's all there.

Great job!
