GREAT APP! This is the one I have been looking for. Need help just ask the designer, Dan , got back to me fast and had the answers. Best 5 bucks I have ever spent.
Well thought out, I use it every gig This app is made for gigging with and the screen layout (esp chord sidebar) is excellent. The lyrics are easy to read, and the scroll function is easily tweakable. I have used it hundreds of times in an all-request setting with great results.
Great app with a minor problem I love this app. It works so great. You have complete control over whether it scrolls or not. No more trying to get to page 2 it just scrolls the whole song. You can stop it scrolling at any time and move the lyrics page up or down. Start the scrolling again any time. There is a slight problem when using all the songs list. There is no quick A to Z button to get to the alpha letter you want and once you select a song and want to return back to the listing it starts over at A. And if you are wanting a song starting with M it gets really tedious having to scroll down to the Ms and if you happen to by mistake to hit just a random song, yep, you have to start back at A and scroll to the Ms again.
Total Rip Not only did I have to purchase Lyric Pad, but now I have to pony up for a Bing Search license, plus go through all kinds of hoops to install it. Screw you guys. °°° EDIT°°° I appreciate the quick response. I haven't used it in months but pulled it out the other day and used less that 10 queries when it told me I had exceeded my limit and wanted me to jump through hoops to buy a Bing API license. Seeing that I had already purchased the program, I felt this is just a money grab. Too bad. I liked the program.
Getting there ... I am a busy vocalist and I love my Android tablet, so the idea of being able to replace all my paper 'cheat sheets' with an app was very appealing. I am obviously very worried about crashes or the lyrics scrolling too quickly/slowly. Getting this right can take some time. I tend to use the 'duration' function and then add extra blank lines as required. It's still a bit of an ordeal getting the timing right, but I'm getting better! In short, this is the best app of its kind that I've found so far. Still not perfect, but getting better all the time. However, I have yet to get the 'lyric search' function to work at all! Update April 2014 Still the best app available for vocalists. Have 'converted' several friends to LyricPad. I'd be VERY surprised if you find anything better for the Android platform!
Fine app for forgetful musicians I'll admit it. One of the hardest things I have is remembering lyrics. It's a good thing electrons and this app were invented to help with that. The second hardest is probably the untold hours and numerous trees I've wasted trying to manage set lists and lyric books. This app is an incredible bargain of time, resources, and efficiency. Most of my charts are in document form on my computer. The transition of these documents (wordperfect) to txt for use in Lyric Pad is fairly simple and straightforward, mostly cut and paste. I am progressing with getting formatting and timing the songs correctly and learning the nuances of the app. I can tell (after only one day of use) that my only regret was that I didn't have this app a long time ago. I don't anticipate using the look up feature of the app. I haven't tried that yet so I'll not comment about that feature. Give the free version a try, load in a chart you've created, and work a bit on the minor formatting changes and you'll agree. This one is worth the money. I strongly suggest that you refer to the online help manual for assistance in converting your files. You can find it on the web page that's linked to the app.
