Good app but needs some small tweaks.

I really enough having the hymnal on my tablet but one thing that frustrates me is that when I select a song then open back up the navigational menus (Title or Hymn Number) it starts me back at the top (the "A" titles or hymn number 1). Would appreciate an update that opens those menus at the hymn you currently have open and therefore fixes this issue. It would be the difference in a 3-star rating and a 5-star rating!

Reinstall Instruction

I reinstalled, but I only got the 200 free hymns.
These issues can easily be addressed by reinstalling the app. Here's how:
Delete the app from your iPad by pressing and holding the icon to make it wiggle, then press the x with a circle around it to delete.
Then, launch the App Store from your home screen, and re-download the hymnal app. If you tap the "Purchased" icon at the bottom of the page, it should show you a little cloud icon that tells you you can redownload the application.
From within the app, click on a greyed-out hymn and "re-purchase" the hymns. You will get a prompt letting you know that you've already made this purchase, and that you can redownload the hymns for free. This should download the whole hymns package for you.

Updating dissatisfaction

You would think that a Christian organization like Lifeway would deal more honestly. This app is pretty much a rip-off of those of us who paid 9.99 for it. Not to be updated in this length of time is unacceptable.

Nothing new here, I guess. I'd like to add my agreement to other reviews on several items. 1. Make the app more like a book where you can page from hymn to hymn. A right swipe should take you from 622 to 623, etc. 2. Selecting either TOC should open at the hymn that you are viewing, not the beginning of the list. 3. The Setlist should page from one hymn to the next, you shouldn't have to go back to the index each time. The search function is pretty hopeless. Really difficult to use. Typing "What" brings up a whole list of titles including, Abide with Me. Function needs some polishing.I hope you will update soon. Our church no longer uses hymnals (sadly) but as a musician, I hate to sing off a screen with no notation.
