Good so far

I have imported 100 songs to this app and so far everything is as expected. The scrolling works well. I haven’t yet made any set lists, but I’m waiting until after I upgrade to the paid version. I agree with those who have suggested batch importing, and I think direct importing from iCloud should be a priority as well. I would also suggest PDF support, since it seems a lot of musicians have song files In that format, particularly sheet music. Nevertheless, I’m satisfied enough with this app that I will be upgrading soon.

I just loaded this app a couple of days ago. It had been years since I had looked for an app for scrolling lyrics. Quite a few years ago it was difficult to find a good one and I forgot about it until wanting to play a few new songs out and not having the lyrics memorized. I went to the App Store and looked at two different apps, and saw right away that they were collecting data from my usage and wanted to access my contacts list which I was not comfortable with. I took a look at this one, and noticed that it does not collect any data, which made me quite happy. I downloaded it and it took me all of 15 minutes to get the basics handled. I’m thinking seriously of paying five dollars and loading the pro version, one to get the other features and also to support the developer. I feel that someone who offers such a great program free deserves to be supported.

Sort By Most Recent…

While the so-called “most helpful” review may be accurate as far as it goes I urge you to read further as that review is seven years old. I purchased the Setlist upgrade, have used this app for several years and have been very happy with it and with this developer. I found this app while looking for a teleprompter-like solution for scrolling lyrics. It does that…in spades. I found nothing else even remotely like it.

One feature of the Setlist functionality I recently discovered is a one-touch navigation to the next or last song.

For data entry you can use Dropbox, and maybe I should use it more, but I have found cutting and pasting to/from a text editor to be more intuitive. Bulk import/export of song files is not supported as far as I can tell.

Regarding support, I have called on Dante a couple of times and have found him very knowledgeable and responsive. This is not his day job, so allow him 24 hours or so to get back to you. This app is designed to regularly back up all data to iCloud. If you think you’ve lost your data, take a deep breath and don’t do anything rash. Its probably still there and your issue is likely not the fault of this app. Consider contacting Apple Support (whom I have also found to be very helpful).
