Meh...
by iBiancaW on 2020/07/13 03:06
I’m not happy that I can’t sign in and sync with my church account. Recently, I had to buy a new phone and create a new playlist. My original playlist is on a broken phone, which won’t even turn on. I’m not digging the name change nor the removal of the tempo feature. Otherwise, I’m grateful to have access to our church hymns.
Love the app can’t wait for update
by Scarletnaz on 2020/07/12 16:24
Love the app can’t wait for the update that will allow me to access it on my iPhone 11 Pro that I got yesterday (11 July 2020). Any idea when it will be ready for release, these phones have been out for a while.
Wish it had a dark mode
by ChiroWife93 on 2020/07/12 14:36
Great app just wish it had a dark mode setting. My eyes are sensitive to light and I like having my apps in dark mode.
Please fix bugs
by lds 🙂 on 2020/06/20 14:40
I don’t want my issues to make the ratings go down but there are some things that can be improved. 😉 LOVE: Easy switching between languages and multilingual playlists ability. Sheet music for sharing and download. One convenient place for music. HELP: Please add a transpose feature!! a reviewer mentioned their seminary students needed it at 7 am....mine is at 6 and I’m one of the students and none of us are master singers. So it ends up being only one person singing whos really into it hitting the high notes while we croak and almost suffocate 😵 also playlists aren’t working, I sent a help request a month ago and never heard back😭I love playlists please fix!!! 💔 THANKS Y’ALL GOD BLESS💛💛💖😌
Bring back tempo feature
by heres a great idea on 2020/06/14 21:08
Why the hell are the hymns so slow?
Great app, and Scrolling Bug
by 87654321#:) on 2020/06/07 18:57
This is a great app, and I use it every week. Love having all the hymns in both English and Spanish in my pocket wherever I go. I’ve noticed a bug while scrolling though. When I scroll to the bottom, there is normally a little icon that appears that says to release to scroll to the top. About half the time, that arrow disappears and I can’t jump to the top. I think this might happen when my finger slips a little, and it thinks I’m trying to switch to the next song, but then messes it up and stays on the song I want, without the arrow. (I’m on IPhone 6, so might just be my old phone, idk) Please fix this, as it makes it so much easier to get to the top while still going along with the music.
Church Music
by anyone else here from tikiok on 2020/06/07 18:35
It makes our family’s singing sound good!
Awesome
by Place2354 on 2020/05/17 16:09
This app is fantastic and really helps in church!
Pretty Solid
by KRich0 on 2020/05/03 17:24
This app is really good aside from not being able to change the tempo of the songs and the instrument on which the song is played. I think the ability to change the tempo is the most important feature that is missing.
Please allow to transpose!!
by Ciara Lynne on 2020/04/12 18:48
Such a wonderful tool! But oh my goodness if I could transpose a hymn down a few keys to accommodate for seminary students at 7am, that would be the BEST! Please, please add this feature!
Sacred Music is Great, but...
by Jeremy N. West on 2020/03/17 02:14
Sacred Music is great, but it is SO ANNOYING that I can only delete stuff off my iPhone by categories such as “Sheet Music” or “Music Only”. Sometimes I might want to delete one song’s “Music Only” off my phone, not just I have to delete all of the music and then redownload EVERYTHING I still want.
Great, functional app!
by NinjaPenguinCoder on 2020/03/09 01:11
I use this app frequently, and it works very well. The recent update fixed a bug on iPad where the options dialog in a song would get stuck on the screen.
Beware
by Smiling Joel on 2020/03/02 13:20
These are Mormon hymns, not Christian hymns of the faith.
Can’t change from sheet music to words only
by Player1Start on 2020/02/25 01:11
When attempting to change to words only (or other options) I cannot scroll to select it because the list of languages is too long and the scrolling does not work properly. Otherwise it’s a good app
Needs an Apple Watch app.
by Lk198823 on 2019/12/31 07:25
I really love this app, but I do have a problem with it. I would love to see an Apple Watch app as a companion so you could listen to hymns while walking or running.
Up dates
by Fzk5 on 2019/11/21 14:04
I live this app. It’s easy to find what your looking for. I only gave it a 4 star because after it up dates it erases all the play list you have set up. You have to start over.
?......
by Dh33468318 on 2019/11/10 17:09
it has become unusable the popup menu is so long the top options can’t be selected and the menu is stuck
I need help...
by sasha zelaya on 2019/09/03 18:40
I used to have this app changed phones and with new updates I can’t get my music in Spanish I like to switch from English to Spanish and I can’t figure it out no mater what I try. If it would work again this would be so awesome
Mormon, 몰몬교 이단입니다.
by Jonkkum on 2019/08/31 11:21
유튜브에 많은 이단들이 찬송가를 개사하고 하나님의 자녀를 미혹하는 음악을 만들어 올리고 있습니다. 그래서 찬송가를 부르고 들을 때 사용할 앱을 찾다 다운받았는데 느낌이 이상했습니다. Hymn이라고 써있지만 느낌이 이상하여 하나님께 가르쳐달라고 여쭤봤습니다. 몰몬의 창시자 조셉스미스를 찬송하는 노래가 있었어요. 우리는 오직 예수님만 찬양, 찬송해야합니다! 조셉스미스를 찬양하는 건 하나님께서 가증하다 여기시는 우상숭배입니다. 미혹의 영, 거짓의 영, 우상숭배의 영! 나사렛 예수의 이름으로 명하노니 지금 당장 결박받아 무저갱에 던져질지어다!
Can’t get it out of the dock
by gthornock on 2019/06/09 21:02
Lately this app has been adding itself to the dock on my iPad with a little clock badge in the corner of the icon, and the only way I’ve found to make it STOP is to delete the app. Note: “Show suggested and recent apps” is disabled on this iPad. This app doesn’t seem to care. I would love to give it another chance, because I use this app all the time. But until there’s a way to make the bad thing stop, it’s not getting installed again.
EFY Music????
by livibri on 2019/05/10 00:49
I’m just very confused as to why the new Youth Music section on the app doesn’t include EFY songs, even though EFY songs are included under youth music on lds.org. Is it because they’re from a paid organization where you have to pay for the songs in order to listen to them??? I’m just confused and upset they’re not there.
Options Plz
by Lkpwl on 2019/04/29 02:14
It would be great if we had the option to revert to the old icon if preferred, it’s all about choices right?!
Sacred music?
by trey3rob on 2019/04/25 02:50
You’re kidding me with the new app name right? Sacred music? What was wrong with the old name? Seriously????
New Icon and Name is Terrible
by Baylyboy on 2019/04/24 13:51
Why did you change the icon and app name? Before, it clearly stood out and was easy to find on my device. Now, it blends in too easily with other music apps and is lost in the crowd. Please change it back!
Daddy daddy daddy
by mandell lide on 2019/04/06 14:24

by The Music Appreciator. on 2019/02/04 03:30
I could not get my iphone 6+ to play hymns with vocals. The hymns only play in instrumental.
Can't open it
by I Love it and Hate it! on 2019/02/03 15:10
It crashes everytime I click the app. Please fix it. I can't wait to hear those hymns and youth theme songs.
Music
by Trudded on 2019/01/28 03:48
Can you please add the EFY music as well.
LOVED IT
by colossus301 on 2019/01/13 02:34
I absolutely loved this app!❤️ It works so well🙌
Use it all the time!
by BeckyHowlett on 2018/12/19 06:51
I use this all the time! The only suggestion is please add this app to Apple TV. I would even use it more. I would love to have this playing in my home or even have my kids play list of there primary program songs going often so they can hear them more.
Night mode
by ylluminate on 2018/12/09 17:19
Like the gospel library, this too needs to have a dark mode. This is sometimes painful to use when you have eye trouble.
Works great until it doesn't
by Angry in Bozeman on 2018/12/09 17:19
I love using this app to practice my French but for whatever reason when I switch the language it cuts letters out of words either leaving words in pieces or filling that space with a box. I am not good enough to guess what word goes there. Please fix!
Why is the default keyboard the Numbers?
by FillingTimeWithFun on 2018/12/01 15:16
Every time I go to look up a song I have to switch the default keyboard from numbers to letters. Not just once. If I hit the space bar in between words it bounces back to numbers. Ridiculous! By the time I’m done typing the words to look for the song they’re halfway through the song in Sharing Time.
New update has less features
by OT Life Hacks on 2018/11/11 19:27
Couldn’t we previous play certain parts of the music? I used to like using the app to learn just my part. Now the only options are the whole piece without voices or with all the voices
Good and bad
by Fhqwgadshg on 2018/10/28 19:20
This app is good when it works and I can read the music. It is just as often bad when I launch it and it needs an internet connection to download the music. Why oh why would you make an app that constantly has to update never-changing content? Super frustrating, and it always needs to download the sheet music at the worst time. Glad the scriptures app doesn’t do the same thing.
Awesome but..
by Chris0j7 on 2018/10/21 01:16
Please provide an option for HD. The quality isn’t the best in fact it is not great but the music value is the best 👍
Off line
by wmt rabbit on 2018/09/25 18:51
I love this app. What I would like is to have availability to access it without the Internet and burning up my data. There’s just sometimes I want to listen to it and I don’t want to worry about the data usage.
Suggestion For New Feature
by poor dude with an ipod on 2018/08/14 04:44
The app is great for listening to music. I just have one suggestion: there should be an option to play the separate parts (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass) of each song. It would be great to have this option as it would make it easy to learn parts.
Great app
by ldpetersen on 2018/07/18 16:12
I love this app! I listen to the youth music all the time and love it. I haven’t had any problems with it and like that I can change it between “music only” and “music and vocals”. I also love that you can pull up the sheet music for hymns and primary songs. Great app all around for my iPhone.
Bring back the lyrics
by sixhans on 2018/07/15 20:43
You use to be able to play the song and still see the lyrics so you could sing along now it just goes to a picture and you can see the lyrics!
You need to add Hawaiian as one of the languages

Doesn't work on iPad
by sup3rz3ro on 2018/05/31 16:08
iPad version won't open in iPad (2 I think). Re downloaded many times. iPhone version works on iPhone.
Love it; Could use an Update for iPhone X
by Jorgelovesmusic on 2018/01/25 03:47
I love this app. Only that it appears small on my iPhone. If it were updated for iPhone X, I would give this 5 stars!
Tempos are too slow
by Spenceco on 2018/01/19 03:59
Every song is played like a dirge. I try to use the app when we don’t have access to a piano or organ. Piano accompaniment is great but the strings are so unnecessary. I hate using this app so it sits idle most of the time.
Such a perfect app!
by jrwagz on 2018/01/19 02:54
Keep up the great work, I especially like the updates for the iPhone X!
iPhone X
by Age20 on 2018/01/19 02:15
Getting there on the iPhone X. The scroll back to the top feature isn’t working, and when scrolling left and right through the hymns in full screen mode, it puts the title in the notch. Works and looks way better than before with the shadow boxing. Keep up the good work.

Youth Theme Music Should be an automatic update
by Ang in NY on 2018/01/03 13:36
Why isn’t the 2018 youth theme music an update like every other year?
Doesn’t work
by Paul S. O'Malley on 2017/12/24 05:05
Whenever I open the app and try to open a song, all I get is a blank screen. I have never gotten it to work. I would love an update that actually makes this app work.
No Content
by blacksheepval on 2017/12/17 18:23
It says the bug that caused some people to not see content was fixed. Somebody should let my phone know. I can see the Primary songs but not the hymns. It says I’m updated but it’s not fixed.

great with one problem
by savvy.jo on 2017/10/29 17:51
i’m the ward pianist so i have to pick the hymns every sunday. i love using the topic feature to find hymns that coincide with sacrament meeting! but with the new app, the topics only apply to the children’s songbook, not the hymnbook! please fix!!!
Sheet music
by kkamoe on 2017/10/08 19:17
For the life of me on my different devices I can’t get my sheet music to load! Please update and fix this.
5 stars
by PinkieDash123 on 2017/09/21 17:35
Love it! I love music that uplifts and invites the spirit. Love it! ♥️
Another great convenience
by @EmmaSeymore on 2017/09/18 05:25
Thank you for making this app! It is so convenient and the recordings are something we use often!
Zoom in Text Mode!!!!
by BourneAgain on 2017/09/03 19:03
Add Zoom in Text Mode!!!!
Yay
by demonkid14 on 2017/09/03 16:40
Yay
Great app
by 5|-|4|)0\/\/ on 2017/08/30 06:47
This app is perfect for singing the hymns as well as other church songs. And, unlike Gospel Library, it has the music in addition to the words of each song. 10/10
Constantly Playing
by alertspaz1 on 2017/08/21 14:24
I can't stop the "player" feature! Frustrated for months! Could you make the scripture references clickable? I decided to go through LDS.org which kept telling me to come back to this app. However, I COULD click into the scripture references. I find this helps me prepare for Sac Mtg hymn playing. Thanks for all you do! Would it be possible to add music to the app? Like a "Music Library?" Idk maybe there's one out there already?
I cannot get any content
by Lightning228 on 2017/08/13 22:52
I love this app, it is certainly a 5 star app when it is functioning. But it is literally just a blank app when I open try to open a song. I have deleted it and re downloaded 4 different times with no new results. I miss having access to the hymnal on my phone, but I will patiently await the new update, and will pray this issue is resolved.
Last update took the sheet music away?
by Doctor Turner on 2017/08/03 01:36
What happened to the sheet music???? Why does it no longer work
Love it
by Kierra bear on 2017/07/26 03:43
I love the Hymns and I enjoy playing them on the piano and it is great to have all of them here on this phone. I also love listening to these beautiful hymns. I definitely recommend this app because it can make cleaning fun and hymns are amazing!!!!!!!!!
Just downloaded, won't work
by Time lord science on 2017/07/20 20:59
I just downloaded the app today, but when I opened it it stayed on the start screen and then crashed. Reinstalling did not help. Pretty please fix!
Stretched Phone App
by Larry Landen on 2017/06/16 02:42
Every now and then a hymn in the hymn list gets marked or highlighted and I can't remove that color highlight on the hymn. I like that this has options for words and sheet music, that it has optional music to play for sing along or background, and that this is the official app. This is great for the iPhone, but on iPad it renders as a stretched phone app and doesn't make better use of the available space. It's also too bad that copyright does allow the digital use (in the app) of all hymns in the hymn book (some are blocked). The optional music somewhat sounds like violins, but it would be nice to have a preferences area where I can pick what instrument sound to have used and have a grand piano as an option (if not the default option). It would be nice if this were in the same app as the official gospel library, rather than as a separate app.
Inconsistent
by jecho21 on 2017/05/28 23:06
This app works about less than half the time. It's a shame because it is so useful to have all the hymns in your pocket. Also why does it take up so much space? I rarely download any music and yet in the settings it shows the files are huge. Please fix!
Works perfectly!
by QwertyNinja93 on 2017/05/26 21:21
I've had no problems when using this app. It's easy to use and works well. I would like to see an option to play the music with or without people singing.
Needs more options when playing music
by edk012 on 2017/04/19 22:36
I'm all for having people singing with the music (for people who may like that) and different instruments playing, but I need the option to have just the piano with no one singing so I actually use this. Otherwise it is just a little awkward when doing FHE or using it at church.
Frustrated
by Mnm315 on 2017/04/08 21:47
The songs don't show, can't play the songs, disappointed
Nothing but frustration
by Kathyllew on 2017/03/15 01:31
All I get when I install the app is a blank page. The music and music with vocal will not download. I've rebooted phone and reinstalled app to no avail. I have plenty of memory available. This is so frustrating I want to scream. I need the app for Primary.
System update fixed my problems
by LakesideAurora on 2017/02/18 17:05
After the last update nothing was coming up in my app. I deleted then reinstalled, still nothing. I was getting ready to write a review then remembered the system update on mu iPhone. Installed that and the app works perfectly. Hope this helps others!
Mr
by Scotthadl on 2017/02/12 19:27
This worked great until recently. Now I only get a white screen when I open a hymn. When can we expect a fix.
Great app with a major flaw
by JFLund on 2017/02/12 18:34
This app has all the hymns beautifully formatted to sing or play on the piano. And the ability to have the hymns played audibly is great. But that is also its major flaw. It is way too easy to accidentally touch the play button at the bottom of the screen and start the hymn playing aloud. Often it's not evident that this has happened until the church organist stops playing, long after you have closed the app and turned off your phone. How embarrassing to have to quickly fumble around trying to stop it from playing while the sacrament is being blessed. And as if in an attempt to make this all the more common, the music doesn't stop when you put the iPhone to sleep, and it even plays WHEN THE MUTE SWITCH IS ON! It is a fairly common event that this happens in our ward, perhaps because we have too few hymnals, coupled with he fact thatcher our ward is comprised of mostly young, tech savvy individuals not afraid of pulling their phone out to sing from. But maybe they should be afraid. Please fix this. All it would take is to add a confirmation dialog asking if you really want to start it playing. Oh, and don't play WHEN THE MUTE SWITCH IS ON!
Works perfectly
by NoPantsJake on 2017/01/29 20:30
Not sure what others are talking about. The app works great.
Last update
by LisaEesa on 2017/01/29 19:37
I loved using this app every Sunday, but since the last update I can't get anything to appear when I send a song. The update was supposed to fix this exact issue for some users, but possibly created the problem for others like myself. We need this app since we don't have piano players in our YW organization.

Pretty good app. Perhaps make it more foreign language friendly. I can't look up Japanese hymns with the Japanese keyboard! I have to guess the number!

Reinstall app to fix crashes
by fredthebear on 2017/01/15 18:22
I have 2 iPad 2s that would just crash on launching this app. With the latest update I deleted the app and reinstalled it. App launches and works as expected now. Hope this helps someone else with the same issues.
Perfect!!
by ShannieAnnieP on 2017/01/15 16:44
I love this app! It has everything I want, all in one place.
Disappointed after last update
by Blue sapphire_914 on 2017/01/14 06:35
I loved this app in the beginning. When going to church I didn't need to use any books. Teaching primary this an important tool for my lessons. But then the last time I updated this app. I tried looking up hymns and primary songs. I searched songs by titles and numbers and nothing would appear. Then I decided to delete this app. I just came across it again and thought I give this app a second chance because this app used to display the lyrics and play music so my primary kids could sing along. And now the app won't open. I'm so disappointed . And I can't find another app that has lyrics and plays music. Please fix this.
Love this app
by hiltonc on 2017/01/06 21:36
Brilliant.
App no longer opens
by RRDDMMZZ on 2017/01/06 09:10
The app no longer opens on an iPad 4 w/ iOS 10.2. It was working fine until the recent download. There's a big bug in it now.
Lifesaver
by Curl-Curl on 2017/01/03 19:27
This app has been a lifesaver for me for FHE and primary. I love that I can create playlists with songs we are working on memorizing.
Bye bye sheet music
by InternalEmployee on 2017/01/01 21:11
Works great if you want only the words. If you want the sheet music, it doesn't load.

Works great
by Lld4055 on 2016/12/04 05:03
Excellent app. Very helpful for my lessons with younger children.
Was a great program!
by Craazymommy on 2016/12/01 00:29
Since the update on November 2nd, the app has been just a waste of time and space on my iPad. Now, that December is here and not looking like they have given us a timeline on an update or any explanation, I guess will have to be looking out for something new! Such a shame they didn't just upload an older version once discovered the issue.
Worthless
by Nabf1957 on 2016/11/23 04:52
I used to love this app, until they had an update that wiped out all content. It is now completely worthless. Tried the fix it by clearing the memory, it did not work. It seams strange when the iPad is set to none on storage that you need to clear an empty memory.
Does not work
by Randy in Katy on 2016/11/20 23:43
I updated this app on Nov 19th and it does not work at all. The prior version was fine but I had to delete and load a different app. Too bad the prior version is not available anymore. This app deserves a negative star but that option is not available either.
Reinstall
by Kykylegku on 2016/11/20 18:49
I reinstalled this app and now it works just fine again
Solution to the Not Loading Problem
by apples989898 on 2016/11/20 18:24
So, the way to fix it is you go under the settings within the app, then hit manage storage. Hit Clear Storage, then find the language you're wanting and tap it. Activate the Download In Background and it should fix the problem. Annoying I know, but it'll help you get by until the programming team can find a solution.
Fantastic tool, if you update iOS
by Sisu8 on 2016/11/20 16:32
For those with issues, update iOS to the newest version. I use this daily while teaching seminary. A perfect tool to provide accompaniment or vocals.
Wish I had known
by JSK-728 on 2016/11/19 20:40
Wish I had known that by installing this update I would lose ALL music, because then I would not have downgraded by getting it.

Great app, and Scrolling Bug
by 87654321#:) on 2020/06/07 18:57
This is a great app, and I use it every week. Love having all the hymns in both English and Spanish in my pocket wherever I go. I’ve noticed a bug while scrolling though. When I scroll to the bottom, there is normally a little icon that appears that says to release to scroll to the top. About half the time, that arrow disappears and I can’t jump to the top. I think this might happen when my finger slips a little, and it thinks I’m trying to switch to the next song, but then messes it up and stays on the song I want, without the arrow. (I’m on IPhone 6, so might just be my old phone, idk) Please fix this, as it makes it so much easier to get to the top while still going along with the music.
Great app with a major flaw
by JFLund on 2017/02/12 18:34
This app has all the hymns beautifully formatted to sing or play on the piano. And the ability to have the hymns played audibly is great. But that is also its major flaw. It is way too easy to accidentally touch the play button at the bottom of the screen and start the hymn playing aloud. Often it's not evident that this has happened until the church organist stops playing, long after you have closed the app and turned off your phone. How embarrassing to have to quickly fumble around trying to stop it from playing while the sacrament is being blessed. And as if in an attempt to make this all the more common, the music doesn't stop when you put the iPhone to sleep, and it even plays WHEN THE MUTE SWITCH IS ON! It is a fairly common event that this happens in our ward, perhaps because we have too few hymnals, coupled with he fact thatcher our ward is comprised of mostly young, tech savvy individuals not afraid of pulling their phone out to sing from. But maybe they should be afraid. Please fix this. All it would take is to add a confirmation dialog asking if you really want to start it playing. Oh, and don't play WHEN THE MUTE SWITCH IS ON!
Stretched Phone App
by Larry Landen on 2017/06/16 02:42
Every now and then a hymn in the hymn list gets marked or highlighted and I can't remove that color highlight on the hymn. I like that this has options for words and sheet music, that it has optional music to play for sing along or background, and that this is the official app. This is great for the iPhone, but on iPad it renders as a stretched phone app and doesn't make better use of the available space. It's also too bad that copyright does allow the digital use (in the app) of all hymns in the hymn book (some are blocked). The optional music somewhat sounds like violins, but it would be nice to have a preferences area where I can pick what instrument sound to have used and have a grand piano as an option (if not the default option). It would be nice if this were in the same app as the official gospel library, rather than as a separate app.
Disappointed after last update
by Blue sapphire_914 on 2017/01/14 06:35
I loved this app in the beginning. When going to church I didn't need to use any books. Teaching primary this an important tool for my lessons. But then the last time I updated this app. I tried looking up hymns and primary songs. I searched songs by titles and numbers and nothing would appear. Then I decided to delete this app. I just came across it again and thought I give this app a second chance because this app used to display the lyrics and play music so my primary kids could sing along. And now the app won't open. I'm so disappointed . And I can't find another app that has lyrics and plays music. Please fix this.
Please fix bugs
by lds 🙂 on 2020/06/20 14:40
I don’t want my issues to make the ratings go down but there are some things that can be improved. 😉 LOVE: Easy switching between languages and multilingual playlists ability. Sheet music for sharing and download. One convenient place for music. HELP: Please add a transpose feature!! a reviewer mentioned their seminary students needed it at 7 am....mine is at 6 and I’m one of the students and none of us are master singers. So it ends up being only one person singing whos really into it hitting the high notes while we croak and almost suffocate 😵 also playlists aren’t working, I sent a help request a month ago and never heard back😭I love playlists please fix!!! 💔 THANKS Y’ALL GOD BLESS💛💛💖😌
Pretty Solid
by KRich0 on 2020/05/03 17:24
This app is really good aside from not being able to change the tempo of the songs and the instrument on which the song is played. I think the ability to change the tempo is the most important feature that is missing.
System update fixed my problems
by LakesideAurora on 2017/02/18 17:05
After the last update nothing was coming up in my app. I deleted then reinstalled, still nothing. I was getting ready to write a review then remembered the system update on mu iPhone. Installed that and the app works perfectly. Hope this helps others!
Good and bad
by Fhqwgadshg on 2018/10/28 19:20
This app is good when it works and I can read the music. It is just as often bad when I launch it and it needs an internet connection to download the music. Why oh why would you make an app that constantly has to update never-changing content? Super frustrating, and it always needs to download the sheet music at the worst time. Glad the scriptures app doesn’t do the same thing.
Use it all the time!
by BeckyHowlett on 2018/12/19 06:51
I use this all the time! The only suggestion is please add this app to Apple TV. I would even use it more. I would love to have this playing in my home or even have my kids play list of there primary program songs going often so they can hear them more.
Great app
by ldpetersen on 2018/07/18 16:12
I love this app! I listen to the youth music all the time and love it. I haven’t had any problems with it and like that I can change it between “music only” and “music and vocals”. I also love that you can pull up the sheet music for hymns and primary songs. Great app all around for my iPhone.
Reinstall app to fix crashes
by fredthebear on 2017/01/15 18:22
I have 2 iPad 2s that would just crash on launching this app. With the latest update I deleted the app and reinstalled it. App launches and works as expected now. Hope this helps someone else with the same issues.
Works great until it doesn't
by Angry in Bozeman on 2018/12/09 17:19
I love using this app to practice my French but for whatever reason when I switch the language it cuts letters out of words either leaving words in pieces or filling that space with a box. I am not good enough to guess what word goes there. Please fix!
Last update
by LisaEesa on 2017/01/29 19:37
I loved using this app every Sunday, but since the last update I can't get anything to appear when I send a song. The update was supposed to fix this exact issue for some users, but possibly created the problem for others like myself. We need this app since we don't have piano players in our YW organization.
Can’t get it out of the dock
by gthornock on 2019/06/09 21:02
Lately this app has been adding itself to the dock on my iPad with a little clock badge in the corner of the icon, and the only way I’ve found to make it STOP is to delete the app. Note: “Show suggested and recent apps” is disabled on this iPad. This app doesn’t seem to care. I would love to give it another chance, because I use this app all the time. But until there’s a way to make the bad thing stop, it’s not getting installed again.
Works perfectly!
by QwertyNinja93 on 2017/05/26 21:21
I've had no problems when using this app. It's easy to use and works well. I would like to see an option to play the music with or without people singing.
Suggestion For New Feature
by poor dude with an ipod on 2018/08/14 04:44
The app is great for listening to music. I just have one suggestion: there should be an option to play the separate parts (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass) of each song. It would be great to have this option as it would make it easy to learn parts.
Meh...
by iBiancaW on 2020/07/13 03:06
I’m not happy that I can’t sign in and sync with my church account. Recently, I had to buy a new phone and create a new playlist. My original playlist is on a broken phone, which won’t even turn on. I’m not digging the name change nor the removal of the tempo feature. Otherwise, I’m grateful to have access to our church hymns.
Love the app can’t wait for update
by Scarletnaz on 2020/07/12 16:24
Love the app can’t wait for the update that will allow me to access it on my iPhone 11 Pro that I got yesterday (11 July 2020). Any idea when it will be ready for release, these phones have been out for a while.
Great, functional app!
by NinjaPenguinCoder on 2020/03/09 01:11
I use this app frequently, and it works very well. The recent update fixed a bug on iPad where the options dialog in a song would get stuck on the screen.
Love it
by Kierra bear on 2017/07/26 03:43
I love the Hymns and I enjoy playing them on the piano and it is great to have all of them here on this phone. I also love listening to these beautiful hymns. I definitely recommend this app because it can make cleaning fun and hymns are amazing!!!!!!!!!
Can’t change from sheet music to words only
by Player1Start on 2020/02/25 01:11
When attempting to change to words only (or other options) I cannot scroll to select it because the list of languages is too long and the scrolling does not work properly. Otherwise it’s a good app
Great app
by 5|-|4|)0\/\/ on 2017/08/30 06:47
This app is perfect for singing the hymns as well as other church songs. And, unlike Gospel Library, it has the music in addition to the words of each song. 10/10
Off line
by wmt rabbit on 2018/09/25 18:51
I love this app. What I would like is to have availability to access it without the Internet and burning up my data. There’s just sometimes I want to listen to it and I don’t want to worry about the data usage.
iPhone X
by Age20 on 2018/01/19 02:15
Getting there on the iPhone X. The scroll back to the top feature isn’t working, and when scrolling left and right through the hymns in full screen mode, it puts the title in the notch. Works and looks way better than before with the shadow boxing. Keep up the good work.
Sacred Music is Great, but...
by Jeremy N. West on 2020/03/17 02:14
Sacred Music is great, but it is SO ANNOYING that I can only delete stuff off my iPhone by categories such as “Sheet Music” or “Music Only”. Sometimes I might want to delete one song’s “Music Only” off my phone, not just I have to delete all of the music and then redownload EVERYTHING I still want.
Needs more options when playing music
by edk012 on 2017/04/19 22:36
I'm all for having people singing with the music (for people who may like that) and different instruments playing, but I need the option to have just the piano with no one singing so I actually use this. Otherwise it is just a little awkward when doing FHE or using it at church.
Up dates
by Fzk5 on 2019/11/21 14:04
I live this app. It’s easy to find what your looking for. I only gave it a 4 star because after it up dates it erases all the play list you have set up. You have to start over.
Another great convenience
by @EmmaSeymore on 2017/09/18 05:25
Thank you for making this app! It is so convenient and the recordings are something we use often!
Why is the default keyboard the Numbers?
by FillingTimeWithFun on 2018/12/01 15:16
Every time I go to look up a song I have to switch the default keyboard from numbers to letters. Not just once. If I hit the space bar in between words it bounces back to numbers. Ridiculous! By the time I’m done typing the words to look for the song they’re halfway through the song in Sharing Time.
I cannot get any content
by Lightning228 on 2017/08/13 22:52
I love this app, it is certainly a 5 star app when it is functioning. But it is literally just a blank app when I open try to open a song. I have deleted it and re downloaded 4 different times with no new results. I miss having access to the hymnal on my phone, but I will patiently await the new update, and will pray this issue is resolved.
Needs an Apple Watch app.
by Lk198823 on 2019/12/31 07:25
I really love this app, but I do have a problem with it. I would love to see an Apple Watch app as a companion so you could listen to hymns while walking or running.
Options Plz

It would be great if we had the option to revert to the old icon if preferred, it’s all about choices right?!
New update has less features
by OT Life Hacks on 2018/11/11 19:27
Couldn’t we previous play certain parts of the music? I used to like using the app to learn just my part. Now the only options are the whole piece without voices or with all the voices
I need help...
by sasha zelaya on 2019/09/03 18:40
I used to have this app changed phones and with new updates I can’t get my music in Spanish I like to switch from English to Spanish and I can’t figure it out no mater what I try. If it would work again this would be so awesome
Bring back the lyrics
by sixhans on 2018/07/15 20:43
You use to be able to play the song and still see the lyrics so you could sing along now it just goes to a picture and you can see the lyrics!

Inconsistent
by jecho21 on 2017/05/28 23:06
This app works about less than half the time. It's a shame because it is so useful to have all the hymns in your pocket. Also why does it take up so much space? I rarely download any music and yet in the settings it shows the files are huge. Please fix!

Tempos are too slow
by Spenceco on 2018/01/19 03:59
Every song is played like a dirge. I try to use the app when we don’t have access to a piano or organ. Piano accompaniment is great but the strings are so unnecessary. I hate using this app so it sits idle most of the time.
Nothing but frustration
by Kathyllew on 2017/03/15 01:31
All I get when I install the app is a blank page. The music and music with vocal will not download. I've rebooted phone and reinstalled app to no avail. I have plenty of memory available. This is so frustrating I want to scream. I need the app for Primary.
Perfect!!

Great app, and Scrolling Bug
by 87654321#:) on 2020/06/07 18:57
This is a great app, and I use it every week. Love having all the hymns in both English and Spanish in my pocket wherever I go. I’ve noticed a bug while scrolling though. When I scroll to the bottom, there is normally a little icon that appears that says to release to scroll to the top. About half the time, that arrow disappears and I can’t jump to the top. I think this might happen when my finger slips a little, and it thinks I’m trying to switch to the next song, but then messes it up and stays on the song I want, without the arrow. (I’m on IPhone 6, so might just be my old phone, idk) Please fix this, as it makes it so much easier to get to the top while still going along with the music.

Mormon, 몰몬교 이단입니다.
by Jonkkum on 2019/08/31 11:21
유튜브에 많은 이단들이 찬송가를 개사하고 하나님의 자녀를 미혹하는 음악을 만들어 올리고 있습니다. 그래서 찬송가를 부르고 들을 때 사용할 앱을 찾다 다운받았는데 느낌이 이상했습니다. Hymn이라고 써있지만 느낌이 이상하여 하나님께 가르쳐달라고 여쭤봤습니다. 몰몬의 창시자 조셉스미스를 찬송하는 노래가 있었어요. 우리는 오직 예수님만 찬양, 찬송해야합니다! 조셉스미스를 찬양하는 건 하나님께서 가증하다 여기시는 우상숭배입니다. 미혹의 영, 거짓의 영, 우상숭배의 영! 나사렛 예수의 이름으로 명하노니 지금 당장 결박받아 무저갱에 던져질지어다!

EFY Music????
by livibri on 2019/05/10 00:49
I’m just very confused as to why the new Youth Music section on the app doesn’t include EFY songs, even though EFY songs are included under youth music on lds.org. Is it because they’re from a paid organization where you have to pay for the songs in order to listen to them??? I’m just confused and upset they’re not there.

by ldpetersen on 2018/07/18 16:12
I love this app! I listen to the youth music all the time and love it. I haven’t had any problems with it and like that I can change it between “music only” and “music and vocals”. I also love that you can pull up the sheet music for hymns and primary songs. Great app all around for my iPhone.
Bring back the lyrics
by sixhans on 2018/07/15 20:43
You use to be able to play the song and still see the lyrics so you could sing along now it just goes to a picture and you can see the lyrics!

Doesn't work on iPad
by sup3rz3ro on 2018/05/31 16:08
iPad version won't open in iPad (2 I think). Re downloaded many times. iPhone version works on iPhone.
Love it; Could use an Update for iPhone X
by Jorgelovesmusic on 2018/01/25 03:47
I love this app. Only that it appears small on my iPhone. If it were updated for iPhone X, I would give this 5 stars!
Tempos are too slow
by Spenceco on 2018/01/19 03:59
Every song is played like a dirge. I try to use the app when we don’t have access to a piano or organ. Piano accompaniment is great but the strings are so unnecessary. I hate using this app so it sits idle most of the time.
Such a perfect app!
by jrwagz on 2018/01/19 02:54
Keep up the great work, I especially like the updates for the iPhone X!
iPhone X
by Age20 on 2018/01/19 02:15
Getting there on the iPhone X. The scroll back to the top feature isn’t working, and when scrolling left and right through the hymns in full screen mode, it puts the title in the notch. Works and looks way better than before with the shadow boxing. Keep up the good work.

Youth Theme Music Should be an automatic update

Why isn’t the 2018 youth theme music an update like every other year?
Doesn’t work
by Paul S. O'Malley on 2017/12/24 05:05
Whenever I open the app and try to open a song, all I get is a blank screen. I have never gotten it to work. I would love an update that actually makes this app work.
No Content
by blacksheepval on 2017/12/17 18:23
It says the bug that caused some people to not see content was fixed. Somebody should let my phone know. I can see the Primary songs but not the hymns. It says I’m updated but it’s not fixed.

by savvy.jo on 2017/10/29 17:51
i’m the ward pianist so i have to pick the hymns every sunday. i love using the topic feature to find hymns that coincide with sacrament meeting! but with the new app, the topics only apply to the children’s songbook, not the hymnbook! please fix!!!
Sheet music

For the life of me on my different devices I can’t get my sheet music to load! Please update and fix this.

Great app
by 5|-|4|)0\/\/ on 2017/08/30 06:47
This app is perfect for singing the hymns as well as other church songs. And, unlike Gospel Library, it has the music in addition to the words of each song. 10/10
Constantly Playing
by alertspaz1 on 2017/08/21 14:24
I can't stop the "player" feature! Frustrated for months! Could you make the scripture references clickable? I decided to go through LDS.org which kept telling me to come back to this app. However, I COULD click into the scripture references. I find this helps me prepare for Sac Mtg hymn playing. Thanks for all you do! Would it be possible to add music to the app? Like a "Music Library?" Idk maybe there's one out there already?
I cannot get any content
by Lightning228 on 2017/08/13 22:52
I love this app, it is certainly a 5 star app when it is functioning. But it is literally just a blank app when I open try to open a song. I have deleted it and re downloaded 4 different times with no new results. I miss having access to the hymnal on my phone, but I will patiently await the new update, and will pray this issue is resolved.
Last update took the sheet music away?
by Doctor Turner on 2017/08/03 01:36
What happened to the sheet music???? Why does it no longer work
Love it
by Kierra bear on 2017/07/26 03:43
I love the Hymns and I enjoy playing them on the piano and it is great to have all of them here on this phone. I also love listening to these beautiful hymns. I definitely recommend this app because it can make cleaning fun and hymns are amazing!!!!!!!!!
Just downloaded, won't work
by Time lord science on 2017/07/20 20:59
I just downloaded the app today, but when I opened it it stayed on the start screen and then crashed. Reinstalling did not help. Pretty please fix!
Stretched Phone App
by Larry Landen on 2017/06/16 02:42
Every now and then a hymn in the hymn list gets marked or highlighted and I can't remove that color highlight on the hymn. I like that this has options for words and sheet music, that it has optional music to play for sing along or background, and that this is the official app. This is great for the iPhone, but on iPad it renders as a stretched phone app and doesn't make better use of the available space. It's also too bad that copyright does allow the digital use (in the app) of all hymns in the hymn book (some are blocked). The optional music somewhat sounds like violins, but it would be nice to have a preferences area where I can pick what instrument sound to have used and have a grand piano as an option (if not the default option). It would be nice if this were in the same app as the official gospel library, rather than as a separate app.
Inconsistent
by jecho21 on 2017/05/28 23:06
This app works about less than half the time. It's a shame because it is so useful to have all the hymns in your pocket. Also why does it take up so much space? I rarely download any music and yet in the settings it shows the files are huge. Please fix!
Works perfectly!
by QwertyNinja93 on 2017/05/26 21:21
I've had no problems when using this app. It's easy to use and works well. I would like to see an option to play the music with or without people singing.
Needs more options when playing music
by edk012 on 2017/04/19 22:36
I'm all for having people singing with the music (for people who may like that) and different instruments playing, but I need the option to have just the piano with no one singing so I actually use this. Otherwise it is just a little awkward when doing FHE or using it at church.
Frustrated
by Mnm315 on 2017/04/08 21:47
The songs don't show, can't play the songs, disappointed
Nothing but frustration
by Kathyllew on 2017/03/15 01:31
All I get when I install the app is a blank page. The music and music with vocal will not download. I've rebooted phone and reinstalled app to no avail. I have plenty of memory available. This is so frustrating I want to scream. I need the app for Primary.
System update fixed my problems
by LakesideAurora on 2017/02/18 17:05
After the last update nothing was coming up in my app. I deleted then reinstalled, still nothing. I was getting ready to write a review then remembered the system update on mu iPhone. Installed that and the app works perfectly. Hope this helps others!
Mr
by Scotthadl on 2017/02/12 19:27
This worked great until recently. Now I only get a white screen when I open a hymn. When can we expect a fix.
Great app with a major flaw
by JFLund on 2017/02/12 18:34
This app has all the hymns beautifully formatted to sing or play on the piano. And the ability to have the hymns played audibly is great. But that is also its major flaw. It is way too easy to accidentally touch the play button at the bottom of the screen and start the hymn playing aloud. Often it's not evident that this has happened until the church organist stops playing, long after you have closed the app and turned off your phone. How embarrassing to have to quickly fumble around trying to stop it from playing while the sacrament is being blessed. And as if in an attempt to make this all the more common, the music doesn't stop when you put the iPhone to sleep, and it even plays WHEN THE MUTE SWITCH IS ON! It is a fairly common event that this happens in our ward, perhaps because we have too few hymnals, coupled with he fact thatcher our ward is comprised of mostly young, tech savvy individuals not afraid of pulling their phone out to sing from. But maybe they should be afraid. Please fix this. All it would take is to add a confirmation dialog asking if you really want to start it playing. Oh, and don't play WHEN THE MUTE SWITCH IS ON!
Works perfectly
by NoPantsJake on 2017/01/29 20:30
Not sure what others are talking about. The app works great.
Last update
by LisaEesa on 2017/01/29 19:37
I loved using this app every Sunday, but since the last update I can't get anything to appear when I send a song. The update was supposed to fix this exact issue for some users, but possibly created the problem for others like myself. We need this app since we don't have piano players in our YW organization.

Pretty good app. Perhaps make it more foreign language friendly. I can't look up Japanese hymns with the Japanese keyboard! I have to guess the number!

Reinstall app to fix crashes
by fredthebear on 2017/01/15 18:22
I have 2 iPad 2s that would just crash on launching this app. With the latest update I deleted the app and reinstalled it. App launches and works as expected now. Hope this helps someone else with the same issues.
Perfect!!
by ShannieAnnieP on 2017/01/15 16:44
I love this app! It has everything I want, all in one place.
Disappointed after last update
by Blue sapphire_914 on 2017/01/14 06:35
I loved this app in the beginning. When going to church I didn't need to use any books. Teaching primary this an important tool for my lessons. But then the last time I updated this app. I tried looking up hymns and primary songs. I searched songs by titles and numbers and nothing would appear. Then I decided to delete this app. I just came across it again and thought I give this app a second chance because this app used to display the lyrics and play music so my primary kids could sing along. And now the app won't open. I'm so disappointed . And I can't find another app that has lyrics and plays music. Please fix this.
Love this app
by hiltonc on 2017/01/06 21:36

App no longer opens

Lifesaver
by Curl-Curl on 2017/01/03 19:27
This app has been a lifesaver for me for FHE and primary. I love that I can create playlists with songs we are working on memorizing.
Bye bye sheet music

Excellent app. Very helpful for my lessons with younger children.
Was a great program!
by Craazymommy on 2016/12/01 00:29
Since the update on November 2nd, the app has been just a waste of time and space on my iPad. Now, that December is here and not looking like they have given us a timeline on an update or any explanation, I guess will have to be looking out for something new! Such a shame they didn't just upload an older version once discovered the issue.
Worthless
by Nabf1957 on 2016/11/23 04:52
I used to love this app, until they had an update that wiped out all content. It is now completely worthless. Tried the fix it by clearing the memory, it did not work. It seams strange when the iPad is set to none on storage that you need to clear an empty memory.
Does not work
by Randy in Katy on 2016/11/20 23:43
I updated this app on Nov 19th and it does not work at all. The prior version was fine but I had to delete and load a different app. Too bad the prior version is not available anymore. This app deserves a negative star but that option is not available either.
Reinstall
by Kykylegku on 2016/11/20 18:49
I reinstalled this app and now it works just fine again
Solution to the Not Loading Problem
by apples989898 on 2016/11/20 18:24
So, the way to fix it is you go under the settings within the app, then hit manage storage. Hit Clear Storage, then find the language you're wanting and tap it. Activate the Download In Background and it should fix the problem. Annoying I know, but it'll help you get by until the programming team can find a solution.
Fantastic tool, if you update iOS
by Sisu8 on 2016/11/20 16:32
For those with issues, update iOS to the newest version. I use this daily while teaching seminary. A perfect tool to provide accompaniment or vocals.

Great app, and Scrolling Bug
by 87654321#:) on 2020/06/07 18:57
This is a great app, and I use it every week. Love having all the hymns in both English and Spanish in my pocket wherever I go. I’ve noticed a bug while scrolling though. When I scroll to the bottom, there is normally a little icon that appears that says to release to scroll to the top. About half the time, that arrow disappears and I can’t jump to the top. I think this might happen when my finger slips a little, and it thinks I’m trying to switch to the next song, but then messes it up and stays on the song I want, without the arrow. (I’m on IPhone 6, so might just be my old phone, idk) Please fix this, as it makes it so much easier to get to the top while still going along with the music.
Great app with a major flaw

Please fix bugs
by lds 🙂 on 2020/06/20 14:40
I don’t want my issues to make the ratings go down but there are some things that can be improved. 😉 LOVE: Easy switching between languages and multilingual playlists ability. Sheet music for sharing and download. One convenient place for music. HELP: Please add a transpose feature!! a reviewer mentioned their seminary students needed it at 7 am....mine is at 6 and I’m one of the students and none of us are master singers. So it ends up being only one person singing whos really into it hitting the high notes while we croak and almost suffocate 😵 also playlists aren’t working, I sent a help request a month ago and never heard back😭I love playlists please fix!!! 💔 THANKS Y’ALL GOD BLESS💛💛💖😌
Pretty Solid
by KRich0 on 2020/05/03 17:24
This app is really good aside from not being able to change the tempo of the songs and the instrument on which the song is played. I think the ability to change the tempo is the most important feature that is missing.
System update fixed my problems

Good and bad
by Fhqwgadshg on 2018/10/28 19:20
This app is good when it works and I can read the music. It is just as often bad when I launch it and it needs an internet connection to download the music. Why oh why would you make an app that constantly has to update never-changing content? Super frustrating, and it always needs to download the sheet music at the worst time. Glad the scriptures app doesn’t do the same thing.
Use it all the time!
by BeckyHowlett on 2018/12/19 06:51
I use this all the time! The only suggestion is please add this app to Apple TV. I would even use it more. I would love to have this playing in my home or even have my kids play list of there primary program songs going often so they can hear them more.

Can’t get it out of the dock
by gthornock on 2019/06/09 21:02
Lately this app has been adding itself to the dock on my iPad with a little clock badge in the corner of the icon, and the only way I’ve found to make it STOP is to delete the app. Note: “Show suggested and recent apps” is disabled on this iPad. This app doesn’t seem to care. I would love to give it another chance, because I use this app all the time. But until there’s a way to make the bad thing stop, it’s not getting installed again.
Works perfectly!
by QwertyNinja93 on 2017/05/26 21:21

Suggestion For New Feature
by poor dude with an ipod on 2018/08/14 04:44
The app is great for listening to music. I just have one suggestion: there should be an option to play the separate parts (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass) of each song. It would be great to have this option as it would make it easy to learn parts.
Meh...
by iBiancaW on 2020/07/13 03:06
I’m not happy that I can’t sign in and sync with my church account. Recently, I had to buy a new phone and create a new playlist. My original playlist is on a broken phone, which won’t even turn on. I’m not digging the name change nor the removal of the tempo feature. Otherwise, I’m grateful to have access to our church hymns.
Love the app can’t wait for update
by Scarletnaz on 2020/07/12 16:24
Love the app can’t wait for the update that will allow me to access it on my iPhone 11 Pro that I got yesterday (11 July 2020). Any idea when it will be ready for release, these phones have been out for a while.
Great, functional app!

by Player1Start on 2020/02/25 01:11

by wmt rabbit on 2018/09/25 18:51
I love this app. What I would like is to have availability to access it without the Internet and burning up my data. There’s just sometimes I want to listen to it and I don’t want to worry about the data usage.
iPhone X
by Age20 on 2018/01/19 02:15
Getting there on the iPhone X. The scroll back to the top feature isn’t working, and when scrolling left and right through the hymns in full screen mode, it puts the title in the notch. Works and looks way better than before with the shadow boxing. Keep up the good work.
Sacred Music is Great, but...
by Jeremy N. West on 2020/03/17 02:14
Sacred Music is great, but it is SO ANNOYING that I can only delete stuff off my iPhone by categories such as “Sheet Music” or “Music Only”. Sometimes I might want to delete one song’s “Music Only” off my phone, not just I have to delete all of the music and then redownload EVERYTHING I still want.
Needs more options when playing music
by edk012 on 2017/04/19 22:36
I'm all for having people singing with the music (for people who may like that) and different instruments playing, but I need the option to have just the piano with no one singing so I actually use this. Otherwise it is just a little awkward when doing FHE or using it at church.
Up dates
by Fzk5 on 2019/11/21 14:04
I live this app. It’s easy to find what your looking for. I only gave it a 4 star because after it up dates it erases all the play list you have set up. You have to start over.
Another great convenience
by @EmmaSeymore on 2017/09/18 05:25
Thank you for making this app! It is so convenient and the recordings are something we use often!
Why is the default keyboard the Numbers?
by FillingTimeWithFun on 2018/12/01 15:16
Every time I go to look up a song I have to switch the default keyboard from numbers to letters. Not just once. If I hit the space bar in between words it bounces back to numbers. Ridiculous! By the time I’m done typing the words to look for the song they’re halfway through the song in Sharing Time.
I cannot get any content
by Lightning228 on 2017/08/13 22:52
I love this app, it is certainly a 5 star app when it is functioning. But it is literally just a blank app when I open try to open a song.

Needs an Apple Watch app.
by Lk198823 on 2019/12/31 07:25
I really love this app, but I do have a problem with it. I would love to see an Apple Watch app as a companion so you could listen to hymns while walking or running.

Couldn’t we previous play certain parts of the music? I used to like using the app to learn just my part. Now the only options are the whole piece without voices or with all the voices
I need help...

I used to have this app changed phones and with new updates I can’t get my music in Spanish I like to switch from English to Spanish and I can’t figure it out no mater what I try. If it would work again this would be so awesome
Bring back the lyrics

You use to be able to play the song and still see the lyrics so you could sing along now it just goes to a picture and you can see the lyrics!
Wish it had a dark mode

Great app just wish it had a dark mode setting. My eyes are sensitive to light and I like having my apps in dark mode.
Awesome but..

Please provide an option for HD. The quality isn’t the best in fact it is not great but the music value is the best 👍
Please allow to transpose!!

Such a wonderful tool! But oh my goodness if I could transpose a hymn down a few keys to accommodate for seminary students at 7am, that would be the BEST! Please, please add this feature!
Keyboards

Pretty good app. Perhaps make it more foreign language friendly. I can't look up Japanese hymns with the Japanese keyboard! I have to guess the number!
Night mode

Like the gospel library, this too needs to have a dark mode. This is sometimes painful to use when you have eye trouble.
Works perfectly

Not sure what others are talking about. The app works great.
Inconsistent

This app works about less than half the time. It's a shame because it is so useful to have all the hymns in your pocket. Also why does it take up so much space? I rarely download any music and yet in the settings it shows the files are huge. Please fix!

It makes our family’s singing sound good!
Such a perfect app!

Keep up the great work, I especially like the updates for the iPhone X!

I could not get my iphone 6+ to play hymns with vocals. The hymns only play in instrumental.
Tempos are too slow
by Spenceco on 2018/01/19 03:59
Every song is played like a dirge. I try to use the app when we don’t have access to a piano or organ. Piano accompaniment is great but the strings are so unnecessary. I hate using this app so it sits idle most of the time.
Nothing but frustration
by Kathyllew on 2017/03/15 01:31
All I get when I install the app is a blank page. The music and music with vocal will not download. I've rebooted phone and reinstalled app to no avail. I have plenty of memory available. This is so frustrating I want to scream. I need the app for Primary.
Perfect!!

I love this app! It has everything I want, all in one place.
Can't open it
by I Love it and Hate it! on 2019/02/03 15:10
It crashes everytime I click the app. Please fix it. I can't wait to hear those hymns and youth theme songs.
