Manage huge collections of chord charts and lyrics sheets for your band or worship team on your iPad or iPhone. Quickly pull and reorder set lists and flip from one song to the next with ease. Transpose and highlight chords or change font size with a brush of your finger! Hands-free operation with popular wireless foot pedals or MIDI devices. Playing music has never been more simple with software built for live performance musicians.

This is the free version of OnSong.

The feature set on this free version is so limited as to render it useless for either casual use as a song sheet app, or even to evaluate the full app (which is pretty expensive when you compare it to other similar apps).

Every menu option simply brings up the option to upgrade to the full, paid for, version, making it impossible to assess whether you’d even want to upgrade!

You can sign up for a free trial but I’ve had poor experiences cancelling these “free” trials in the past and so now avoid like the plague.

In short, if you’re prepared to sign up for a subscription this may be worth looking at.
I’m not and there are cheaper options out there so this one will be getting removed from my iPad I’m afraid.

I have been using this version for a while but now when I open the app it asks me to create an account. When I do I get in an infinite loop of asking for an email, name, create a password and then back to email again. It is impossible to access the app so essentially I have lost EVERYTHING. Utterly useless and in fact dangerous if - like me - you need access to the material in the app. AVOID!!

Definitely avoid

I paid for premium features, now asks for account which doesn’t work. Lost access to app at gig. This app is now a big fail.
