  • 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!
  • Song chord pro is difficult to use

    By Gwrirmi
    This is a worthless app. Not at all intuitive..strongly recommend against until interface is improved and direct access to web and chords
  • God Bless the developer of this app!

    By Markkek
    Finally found the ultimate Songbook that works for me. It’s just technical enough to do the important useful functions, but not complicated and buggie to confuse us old school guys - I use this a lot! Really like it Thanks
  • Useful app!

    By Evandro Gomes
    I've have been using this for days and it's exactly what I needed, well, almost.. Pdf reader could be better...
  • Now my go to music reader app

    By LSFyre
    Thanks to the folks at Linke Soft for adding configurable scroll % in the last update. I am a pianist and don't use the Chord Pro format - all my charts and music are rendered as PDFs. I set the scroll to 50% for 1/2 pages, and now I can see across the page break while playing (using AirTurn Duo) ... a couple extra clicks of the pedal well worth it. I can now put all my music and charts in this app and hands-free turn pages or switch to next song in the playlist. This is a great app.
