version update broke it
maybe it’s because i’m in dark mode, but update completely broke app. no psalms with letters, click into a psalm and get no music, no lyrics, no nothing. Dark mode showing up in some menu items which makes it virtually impossible to read dark blue text in menus. Maybe check dark mode and figure out why none of the psalms are loading?
A solid, delightful companion in the pocket. Lets me take the psalter right along with me!
Wonderful! A few additions would make it perfect...
I love having the Book of Psalms for Worship on my iPod Touch. I've been using the paper edition for a year, and was longing for a more portable way to have it with me. My goal is to memorize the Psalms and I can't think of a better way to do that than singing them!
The app is solidly designed, and the quick access scrollbar is a critical feature to "dial up" the appropriate Psalm quickly. I also like that the tunes are available offline once you access them.
Three things I would like to see for the Tunes tab, however:
1. As another reviewer said, it would be helpful if the tunes looped instead of just playing once.
2. I often need to transpose the tunes to my vocal range. Since they are midi files (I assume), it should be possible to put a transpose button on that page.
3. It would be nice to be able to change the tempo of the tunes too. The tunes are mostly very slow. It's a great pace for learning, but if your goal is to sing through the whole Psalter regularly, the tunes really need to be a little faster.
Other than those items, though, I'm very happy with this app!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
