Planning Center Music Stand is a digital music reader that connects to your Planning Center Services account to let you flip through pages and take notes. Features include:

1.) Log in to Planning Center, open any plan in your schedule, and choose which PDF to view for each song.

2.) Turn pages hands-free using a Bluetooth foot pedal, by swiping, tapping the edge of the page, or using a MIDI device.

3.) Use Annotation Tools (highlighter, pen, text) to take notes which are stored online for each user. See your notes from other files and keys. View other user's annotations, merge them with your own, or print your annotated PDFs.

4.) Listen to audio attached to each song and loop sections of the audio.

5.) The integrated metronome changes tempo as you advance to new songs. Listen to the beat or watch the toolbar flash.

6.) Rearrange the pages for any PDF to prevent awkward page turns.

7.) Pinch to Zoom the pages to your liking and save that setting for the future.

8.) Use online or offline. Offline mode stores the last 10 viewed plans. Notes taken offline sync when you reconnect.

9.) Sessions: Allow 1 device to wirelessly control the page turns of any connected devices.

10.) External display: Connect any TV or projector via an HDMI or VGA adapter, or via Airplay mirroring to an Apple TV. Displays two pages at a time.

11.) Use "dark mode" to keep your screen dim on stage.

12.) Editors can reorder items in the plan, add new songs to the plan, edit existing items, or delete them.

NOTE: This application requires a Planning Center Services account with Music Stand enabled.

Problem with metronome response using Bluetooth connected Pedalboard

Earlier this year, we had a setup using iRigBlueboard software to connect a pedalboard to an iPad in order to control the metronome provided in music stand. The system worked great with no hiccups or delays. A short while ago, we needed to reformat the iPad and we quickly discovered that music stand was no longer responding the way it previously was. We checked all batteries and connections. We even redownloaded the app after doing a second reformat of the iPad. We are still running into the issue of music stands metronome refusing to stop after repeatedly commanding it to via the pedalboard.

Please look into this matter. We love Planning Center and wish to continue using it to the fullest. Thank you.

Hi! It's possible the board needs a firmware update, which is also available in the App Store. If you have done that, and are still running into issues, please write in to us at so we can chat today.

Inconvenient: Good Things come to those who Wait

I have been using music stand for over 3 years and I love it. It has been a can’t live without tool. BUT . . . Starting back in February I have been having an issue with getting changes in my chord charts from planning center and my iPad Pro. Once I download my set to my iPad I can not update my changes from Planning Center unless I uninstall the app from my iPad and then reinstall it. I wish someone could help me resolve this issue. Any takers?

It’s time to update my review. I am not sure where the glitch was weather with apple or this app but it no longer exists. Right after your last update 3 days ago. When I make changes in planning Center I can now update my iPad without uninstalling the app and then reinstalling it. Today was the first time in 8 months my iPad has updated. Hallelujah Parise the Lord!!!!! This is now working the way it was before February of this year. This will literally save me hours of time and a ton of frustration.

Recent update is inconvenient.

I use this app on a weekly basis and it works mostly great. I love being able to make my own personal notes on songs and save them for future use. However, recently, there was an update that changed the way the songs are displayed in landscape view. I had been able to have 2 pages displayed and change the display one page at a time, with this update, I have to change 2 pages at a time. This simply doesn’t work for me unless every song is 2 pages or every song is one page. If I have a one page song and then a 2 pager, I will have pg 1 and pg1 on a screen and then pg2 is on the next screen. Super inconvenient, please fix this. 🙏🏻

We're sorry about that! I'm afraid this was an uncaught bug, but we have a fix that will come out after the weekend. If you're in a bind, and would like to try our pre-release beta version, please write in to
Thank you,
