Great app for working musicians. This app has become an essential tool for every gig. That said, the setup isn't the easiest in the world, but once you get it going it's awesome. I have it set up for all the major fake books as well as books for several of the different bands that I am in. I'm able to easily call up any of the tunes from any book and put them in a set. The transposition feature is very useful for sax players. I call up a tune, press the key icon, and pick Bb, Eb, or C which is a feature that sets this app apart from the rest.
Good potential This is a useful app, but not configurable for adding books unless they are in the short list of supported books. ... Also there is no way to adjust the app to your version of each book. Need to be able to adjust the hard-coded page numbers... Most fake books are imperfect and this app does not allow the user to make necessary adjustments.... Just updated and now it crashes when I try to call up a "recently viewed" song from set list page.
Not user friendly
the setup and chart/score organizing can be a bit daunting at first, but once you figure it out, oh! what a tool! not only does it put your entire library at your fingertips, but you can virtually include whatever classical/pop music you can find online, making you prepared for any eventuality when you're out in the field. how many times have you been at your gig, chamber music jam, etc. and said, "next time i'll bring it along...?" igigbook gets you to the 21st century in a hurry. tech support is practically always live on the forum, so you get quick solutions and personal service. you'll love setting it up and fooling around with it, getting it up to speed and doing its versatile thing. i'll never leave home without it! igigbook is worth every penny!
I have iGigBook both for my Android device (Samsung Tab Pro 12.2 inch) and my iPad Pro. The program works wonderfully well on both, and the latest updates from the developer make it even better. Yes, there is a small learning curve to get all your fakebook pdfs to operate properly within the framework of the app, but once you are up and running you will be delighted. I play piano, bass and saxophones, and now I take one tablet to all gigs, instead of stacks and stacks of ancient and dog-eared fakebooks. I can instantly (a) find any song I am looking for from among dozens of fakebooks, and (b) put it in the right key for the instrument I am playing. I can, with extreme ease, create setlists and instantly share them via email (including a pdf file of all the charts!) with bandmates for upcoming gigs. This is the Holy Grail for jazz musicians.
