  • Apple Watch Support

    By rb808
    I love this app. Been using it since version 1. Please update the Apple Watch support. First line of chords of a song, no lyrics, just one playlist. Whole song with chords and auto scroll would be nice. Then I’ll up my rating to 5 stars. Thanks.
  • Best for Chordpro

    By head8555
    I have used this app on and off for many years and switched completely to it three years ago. I own the IOS and android version as well as the Windows app for editing. When I use my IPad for loops I use my android version. It’s a simple app and best of all I can do 2 columns. It much more reliable than other apps I’ve used. I play on average 2 weekends every month and haven’t had zero issues. I’m not sure why there’s negative reviews. One suggestion I have is perhaps making the Android and IOS version feel more identical. One last thing the developer is pretty good at responding when I had a license key issue.
  • Used to love it

    By chaya
    I used to love this app, but lately its doing some strange things. Like when I transpose a song and save it, it reverts back to the original key. There used to be a way to get support for the app, but that seems to have disappeared.
  • Better know how to write in syntax

    By Teimless
    This is one of the least user friendly apps I’ve downloaded..why can’t I just play chords and simultaneously drop them onto the sheet in the order I’ve selected?? Why can I only select chords and see their variations, but not play them within the context of the song. Too many drop downs, too many work around. WHY WOULD I NEED TO LNOW SYNTAX TO WRITE MUSIC. Ripped me off for my money...
  • Use this app constantly

    By Janee555
    I choose to use this app over OnSong for two reasons, 1. It will fit a song to the screen using columns, and 2. It let’s me save everything to Dropbox. There have been very minor glitches with updates, but I have found the developers to be very responsive to emails, and very quick to fix problems by issuing updates.
  • Best song app on market

    By Ryan M R
    My group tried a bunch of these type of programs and this is the best if what you want to do is to share songs, flip pages, transpose keys, and so on. If you also need to control lighting and such there are other programs that do more but for what it does this is the easiest to use and most reliable. We use it every day and now have over 100 songs in it. Sharing with Dropbox sync works quite well and is easy to set up. SongBook has full Mac and Windows versions available. Great for editing and loading songs for later use on the iPad or Android tablet. An important bonus is the excellent (and fast) technical support. The guy who runs this company is nice. Buy this program for managing and sharing songs. Highly recommended.
  • What?

    By ledge55
    I have used apps to manage setlists many times and I’ve never found one so difficult to figure out. As a matter of fact I still haven’t got a setlist setup. At one point I thought I did but couldn’t get it to scroll. Then when I went back to it the songs were listed but gone. And when I went back to the main list they were gone or contained the lyrics from the song above it in the list. I want my $11 back!
  • Useless and Frustrating

    By atx920
    The whole Dropbox thing is frustraing. And If you delete the app all your work is gone. I changed the name of a song and tried to text it to somebody and it wouldn’t update. Kept using the old name. I have i set to sync with dropbox but it doesn’t. So I just lost another song. WORTHLESS
  • Lots of glitches. Usable - but frustrating

    By SixPants
    It's never died during a gig. And the iOS version works. But there are so many goofy issues. In isolation not a big deal. But when you're trying to get things together for a show it can be frustrating. The desktop app is pretty awful and won't run or crashes. In short, this entire produce comes across as a little half-baked. But it's so much less than OnSong that I guess you could run with it. Just be prepared for little issues that aren't a big deal the first month but after 18 months get more and more annoying.
  • Many advantages over OnSong!

    I have bought this for virtually every platform that it is available and my song stuff seamlessly integrates across devices with Dropbox. So cool! Has 2 column support in landscape for less or in some cases no scrolling (OnSong still doesn’t despite 2+ years of promising it is coming soon). Price / features way cheaper than OnSong. Buy the PC version too if you use Songbook much because they compliment each other so well it is very worth it!
