OnSong Console¹ lets you manage your library from your Mac or PC in any web browser. Whether you have ten or ten-thousand songs in your repertoire², it's always lightweight and mobile so you can play anytime, anywhere.

Play more gigs with planning made easy. Pull your set lists in moments² and gather the band. Transpose, capo, and format your text-based chord charts² to look just right and then annotate or draw on the page to make special notes¹. When you're all done, share wirelessly with your team in real-time¹, or print, email, and export too². OnSong is as flexible as it is powerful.

OnSong is built for the stage. Tap to turn pages or go hands-free with wireless foot pedals or intelligent autoscrolling². No more clumsy page turning on cluttered music stands. Every aspect of the song is at your fingertips. Assign tempo and time signature for a reassuring click², sing a cappella with a digital pitch pipe², link to backing tracks to play along², or even send MIDI events to automate your stage¹, all without complicated or confusing equipment.

OnSong features powerful video features that go well beyond other apps. Display lyrics on a projector or an HDTV with a video adapter, AppleTV, or Google Cast-compatible device¹. Compose custom backgrounds with still or motion graphics, or live video¹ feeds for dynamic performances. Stay on the same page with your band with confidence monitors you control on-stage. While you're at it, run stage lighting too¹. OnSong is the ultimate creative tool for musicians.

Disappointed by billing and locked out of features

I really love using OnSong, however last week I received an email from OnSong advising me my subscription had run out and they were sorry to see me go. I checked my subscriptions in iTunes only to find I’d paid it automatically a day before. I went into the app and sure enough all the features are turned off and I can’t even log in again. So I had to seek a refund from iTunes. I attempted to contact OnSong via the help function in the app but am locked out of that also.

Not sure what’s going on, but very disappointed. I would be happy to discuss if I could contact them.

AVOID! Greedy greedy, Took features away after paying.

Very silly of Onsong to have users pay for an earlier version at a full price hit - only to release a seperate version called ‚2022‘ and then take features away and hide them behind an ongoing paid subscription. That was always going to cause terrible feedback. I am so glad i backed all my music up in text files, otherwise I‘d be very upset.
Moving to SongbookPro. So far so good. NEVER trusting the app develops again and will ensure I keep a backup of my music elsewhere in case this happens again across other platforms. 😡😡😡😡👎.

Great app!

Aside from the annoying subscription billing model, this is a pretty great app. PLEASE improve the app icon because it’s rather ugly and dated. Otherwise, if all you’re looking for is autoscroll on iPad, check out Apple Pages. Does the trick for free.
