Great app! A few simple features would improve

It’s a great app. So user friendly and helpful for any musician.
The interface is clean and easy to use.

Maybe useful to other users:
- synchronization with other DataCifra app: We always desire to share the songs/chords online to other datacifra users, it means to other IPad. Maybe we could share using iCloud or Google drive. Usually in a band we can have more than one iPad using DataCifra.
- import playlist from backup files: We usually share our musics/chords using the backup feature. This feature just imports the song/chords, but not the playlist we created on other IPad. We always have to create new playlist after restored the backup file with the imported songs.
- clear all: sometimes it duplicates the songs when importing backup file. So it would be more useful if we could just reset all from scratch and import a backup file from other IPad.

I do not know if it is a bug: when creating a backup file it generate two files: .zip and .drtcxlist. I was able only to import the .dtcxlist files containing the songs/chords. The audio I have never been able to import. I could not find anywhere to import the zip file from the backup.

Latest version is a great find

It took me a while to find the format and text layout for this to work best. I need the text a decent size when performing and that can present some formatting challenges. Also, running the iPad in portrait position seems to help the scrolling speed. The recent addition of widely variable scroll slider with start/stop button and cleanup to the editor make this a nifty little app
NOW if it would only quit prompting me to write a review EVERY time I open it.

Great app but a few flaws

First off, I really like this app. It is easy to use and has many features that work well for my needs. I attach my tablet to my mike stand and use this app to display the songs. It works great.

The chords are supposed to be a different color from the lyrics. Unfortunately that’s not the way it always works. Some cords are a different color and some are not. I wrote to them about it but haven’t heard back.

The one thing I wish it had is spellcheck. That would be great.

All in all it is a great app.
