After several days of struggling to make the playlist function work, I finally figured it out with the help of tech support! So now this app does everything I hoped it would, and very well. You have to start with all songs, and click on the icon with 4 dots followed by 4 lines.

About the only thing wrong with this is a lack of a user manual or help function. Yeah, everyone just intuitively knows how to work every piece of software - sorry, not me. I can figure out a lot of it by trial and error, but it would be very handy to have at least a short reminder available to find all the functions. For example, I am simply not able to find the procedure for switching song lists. I can find the place to CREATE a new one, but not how to use it. Maybe it's just me?

Several isssues with backing up to absolutly anything. Even it's Dropbox continuity claim fails. Poor cloud support, a major must have, the download conversion of PDF files is clunky at best while it loads your device storage. Why do that, just open it off a cloud location? As many applications, support is minimal. Typical score look is BIB. Would seem a BIB interface would be logical. Best thing is if you jam with Real books, that is kewl. Jamming with your arrangements needs a lot of work.
