Ratings and Reviews
This app has all the marks of excellent design plus content. There is almost no learning curve. The mark if a gear app is that you find yourself completely engaged in content and use, and nit laboring with controls and menus. It beautifully captures the wonder of the original split-leaf Psalter which was the ability to apply different tunes to the lyrics. And there are even live recordings for some. The developer has done a remarkable thing—he has made available one if the richest worship books in Church history in a way that glorifies the Word of God.
A wonderful app for singing this Psalter - beautifully done! I only wish it had a daily Psalm calendar to facilitate singing a portion daily!
The ability to choose a variety of tunes for each section is wonderful as is the ability to hear a congregation sing each section of the Psalter according to the tune assigned by the Comprehensive Psalter!
Finally a Place to Learn Tunes.
A great app that allows to very easily find the Psalms and the tunes that go with the psalms. As well as John Brown’s commentary on the psalms is included as well. For the tune selects there is also live recordings of the psalms sung, another great blessing. You can ask search up the tune, I believe there are 198 tunes that this FCC psalter uses.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
