Follow Up to my Crash

So some of my songs are still here, no idea what I did, but I tried to resort the songs by key and a bunch came back. I made an account and backed up my songs that are left. Hopefully we can move forward happily from here!

Didn’t mean the one star, boohoo review. I’ve never lost a few hours of work so abruptly, I just had to say something 😅

There’s 3 Hours I Won’t Get Back

I wanted to love this app. I really did. It seemed to be exactly what I’ve been looking for to keep all my lyrics, charts and set lists in one convenient place. Sooooo ... I spent about three hours typing in all my band’s tunes, adding lyrics where needed along with chord charts.

I finally finished and just totally loved the way it all SEEMED to work so seamlessly. Then I closed the app and opened another app for a minute (the one that runs our bluetooth enabled stage lighting).

When I opened Set List Helper again, voila! Almost ALL the information I had spent the entire afternoon editing was GONE! All that remained were the titles to about a dozen tunes (out of the 80 or so I’d entered). NO CHARTS, NO LYRICS, just those dozen or so titles. I’d planned on buying the paid version just as soon as I made sure the app was going to meet my needs.

Thanks God this sh*&storm didn’t happen in the middle of a gig! What a shame, because other than this glitch (which obviously makes the app utterly useless) I really DO love it.

I’ve been using Gig Hard for the past five years or so; I’m not wild about it, but at least it doesn’t arbitrarily delete 90 percent of my entered data. Guess it’s back to that, though. Bummer.

Excellent support!

First let me say that this is a very good app for musicians. It supports scrolling and it’s very easy to adjust the scroll speed even on the fly. I had a bit of trouble with the sync function and contacted Tim the developer. He responded right away and worked with me until it was solved even to the point of a phone call on a Sunday morning. I am delighted with the app and with the response! Highly recommend this!!
