This app is the absolute business for any vocalist. No more clunky lyric book or guessing. Easy to use and an absolute must! I fully recommend this app, without hesitation. Any problems you have, the Facebook page is your saviour and now they've added the Lyric Search add on for extra search ease. Go for it!
I recently had some questions about the app, so I sent a Facebook message with my question. Within 10 minutes I received a response from the creator and asked my question. Not only did I get the answer, I was walked through the process. I am shocked by the quality of customer service and the willingness to help. I have been using this app live for about 5 years and it works flawlessly every time. Thank you Lyric Pad. Peace!
I'm a guitar teacher and performer. I've been using Lyric Pad for over 2 years. It is a wonderful tool, which I use both professionally, at home and jams. So nice not to have to lug 3 - ring binders around! The developer has been consistently introducing updates to the app and has improved the Lyric Search component.
I don't use the search features anymore as I find every single lyric file out there to need some tweaking and formatting. But for displaying and organizing, this is a really great app. Some of the best features include the font control, size and color based on characters or chords, and the footpad compatibility which has worked flawlessly for me. It also organizes quite easily. The only real downside for me is I would like to see some sort of [backup] button. After all the effort to make lyric sheets and set lists, preferences, etc...it would be nice if I had some way to easily backup all these things in case of loss/damage of the tablet. Otherwise, easily a 4 to 4.5 star app!
Lyric Pad is simply the only tool you need as a performer beyond your musical instrument. I'm a drummer and I manage our band. LP allows me to keep everyone's music current, write notes I can see while I play, listen to the music associated with the lyric or chord file, find lyrics and music quickly and easily and much, much more. Support is also top notch as the developer will answer any question on the Facebook page or the L.P. forum. It's worth the couple bucks and you'll wonder how you managed without it.
Takes to long to create a song file, based around guitarists and vocalists. No sheet music import (for keyboardists,Brass etc)
Added lyric directory scanning so that Lyric Pad can automatically keeps its database up to date.
This means if lyric files are added from an external process (eg. Lyric Search app) they will automatically get added to the Lyric Pad song list
