We did a lot of research before settling on Songbook. Used On Song previously and needed something more Android friendly. Biggest selling point for us was the ease with which we can download songs from the internet and automatically have them converted to Chordpro format. (For newbies like I was when I started this search for an answer to binders full of charts, often in disarray, Chordpro is a special format that allows programs and apps to easily manipulate songs, transposing with a click being one major perk. ) Songs may need some minimal tweeking, once downloaded, but the heavy lifting is done by the app. It also seems out songs on the internet for you that are Chordpro friendly. Enjoying coming into the modern era of music, (albeit a little late), with an app that's easy to use.
The whole reason I got my Samsung Galaxy Tab E was to get this program. I am the lead singer and Rhythm guitarist in a band and the amount of sheet music I have all over my house and files stored on my computer...it is getting a little ridiculous LOL. This program is amazing! It takes a little bit of time to get used to setting up the files in the proper way for the program to take them but once you do it works like a charm. I have done a few live shows and I love carting my tablet around instead of a book that I have to keep going to other books to get Pages out of when creating my setlist. The organization is incredible, I now have over two hundred songs at my fingertips and can quickly change from a capo to a non Capo version when needed. And the Really upside? I didn't have to buy an Apple product to get the program I needed ;-). Thank you guys so much!
I've only had it five minutes, how am I supposed to rate it so quickly? I'm only doing this now to stop the fecking thing asking me to rate it, it might be the best thing ever or the thing that tips me over the edge into rage and insanity and killing my family in an orgy of blood and fire, we'll have to wait and see. XxX
My ukulele club now uses this app for our songbooks and it is fantastic! No more carrying around big heavy binders so I thank you and my shoulder thanks you too.
Great app, been using it as a professional musician for 3 years now, never let me down yet. Converted my whole repertoire (400+) songs into plain text format for this app amd it was worth every second of my time. Invest the time and you'll save a lot more then you have to put in in the longrun
It hasd completely shut down and I have lost all the songs I downloaded. Won't recognize storage on SD card like it is supposed to, and has hijacked any other files I try to download or open, turning them into jibberish.
