App and Support
by morabitounplugged on 2020/11/06 02:28
I have been using this app now for about 3 years ,I don’t know how I ever got along without it! This app will do everything you need it to do for your gigs!. It gets better! If you need it to do something more ,all you have to do is ask! The support Eric gives is second to none! If he can incorporate it into this app he will ,he has done it for me on several occasions. You will love this app and love the service you receive . I know I do !
Chord display
by lasather on 2020/09/20 03:08
Is there a way to display chords differently? Many of the chords that are shown are not in the same fingering as I learned them. Can you provide a blank chord display option where I can add my own finger positions?
Fantastic!
by Jud1958 on 2020/03/31 17:05
One of my new favorite apps! I am just learning how to play stringed instruments. I chose this app because of the ability to switch between uke, mandolin, guitar and banjo. All of the instruments I have!! It even allows baritone uke, again, the style I have. I do kind of wish that you could set the default instrument for each song instead of just the whole library, but it’s not a showstopper. Thanks for making this app!!
New Update
by CharlieST47 on 2020/02/23 12:57
Long time user of this app. Continues to be my favorite go to music app. Thanks for fixing the email button. One thing to keep in mind. If you have created any custom chords, back them up before upgrading the app. It appears that chords go back to the default after upgrading. Easy to restore if you have the backup. Charlie
This is pretty good
by billshepherdkeys on 2019/05/27 00:54
I wish you had an android version. Also would be nice if users could share chord charts
Use this all the time!
by The Big Kahuna F on 2019/05/24 11:30
I participate in community music nights 1-3 times per week and this app is great for keeping all my music in one handy compact place. The instant key change feature is perfect for getting the right cords when singers request different keys. Transferring cords and lyrics from Ultimate guitar tabs website is a bit cumbersome because of the “cord over lyrics” format but another program called Songpress makes conversion to Chordpro a snap.
It has some drawbacks but it’s alright
by HERricane CAMILLE on 2019/03/07 22:16
It has some drawbacks but it’s alright. More customization of song pages would be fab.
Manual import
by CN MBP on 2018/10/15 00:32
Manually importing songs takes a lifetime. Why not add an option to import from word docs or the internet? Compelwtely useless app unless you want to spend hours typing lyrics and tabs on your phone keyboard.
Import
by Krtay on 2018/10/02 03:09
Need more import options.
Double Tap!!
by ColaRedStrat11 on 2018/09/18 15:05
Please stop the app from going back to the song list when I double tap to place the cursor where I need it. There is already an arrow at the bottom that does that function. It would be nice to place the cursor where I need it. Thanks Dave
Not working for me
by dmusselwhite on 2018/06/08 05:28
Never have been able to use it. Doesn’t even show up in my settings. But of coarse they took my money
Ah, zCage! We meet again!
by Murdock Scott on 2018/05/03 16:00
I went looking for a replacement for a straightforward little chord sheet app that I used to use called ChordTunes which became abandon in iOS 11. I was pleased to find that you offered something similar! Odd that there are so few apps that offer chord charts for Guitar, Ukulele, and Mandolin. So five stars right off the bat for that feature! We had some discussions about Seline and OMG guitar in the past and as I recall, you were very helpful with an issue involving Seline libraries. So I am glad to have another opportunity to support your efforts and hopeful that this app will suit my needs. And it it doesn’t, I assure you that I will contact you if I have any requests for improvements. Heh.
The best sheet music app out there!!!
by Paulie 79 on 2018/04/19 11:24
I've been using this app for years and it is the best by far that I’ve ever come across! It is great for use in practice and live settings with many features!!! Love this app!!!
Great app
by Xble on 2018/04/01 21:41
I’ve been looking for something to organize songs and do away with my binder. This app worked great. It does what it says without a lot of steps. I’m not real tech savvy so I wanted something that was easy to use. Once I figured out how to import songs I was able to enter them into mysongbook in about an hour. I entered about 50songs. About as long as it would take me to write 4 by hand. I also had a question and contacted Eric, the tech guy. My question was answered within a couple of hours. So great support. I highly recommend this app.
MySongbook

Great app! No more messing with tons of pages in books.
Very Helpful
by TRBowles on 2018/03/24 02:41
If you are a songwriter or a performer this app is an excellent way to keep your lyrics and chords synced to your devices. Ability to transpose and set Bpm.
Not what I’m looking for.

Can't import songs
by gypsing on 2017/05/24 21:16
I bought this program cause it said I could import from Dropbox and share there isn't any info to do this. Would like my money back.
Good for chord charts for band
by Yabanada on 2017/03/09 18:28
Just what we needed to define the structure of our tunes. I can make charts when I encounter waiting periods during other activities.
Mysongbook
by Wbrogdo1 on 2016/09/26 03:40
Nice app. Works well
It's a try
by David B H on 2016/05/04 03:35
Just don't get it. I thought I could search and save chord charts. Writing in songs is hard. Poor UI/UX.
Need option to change font size
by Ryan1234577&9 on 2016/03/12 21:00
I just bought this app, it is pretty good, but please add option to change font size for lyrics and chords (and maybe option to change color too). please also add option to print the PDFs directly from the app, so we don't have to export to email and the print. Looking to see this at next update. Thanks. R
My music bible
by Lilburn Ga on 2016/03/11 14:41
I have used this app for years. It is my music bible. Love it! I use it in corporate, cruise ship, and national artist gigs. I refer to it often. I have about 600 songs and I don't know what I would do without my songbook.
Don't buy
by Cigagaga on 2016/02/23 15:59
Onsong is the app u need to buy.
It's ok

Good job
by Pianito777 on 2016/01/18 02:37
I love this app it's a great help Buen trabajo,me encanta es de gran ayuda
Expected more
by Hush eggs on 2015/12/23 21:52
It is not very user friendly, and it is hard to edit songs, but it did do its job, just not very well. I wouldn't recommend this app.
Great App
by dsty32 on 2015/12/12 10:09
Great app for songbook list sharing and adding new and old music. Best I seen and used. Improve it as your reviewers are suggesting and you'll pull more consumers! Aloha.
Horrible app!!!!!
by Phil Vaughn on 2015/11/08 01:07
You can spend hours getting your music typed perfectly yet if you make the smallest change or accidentally delete a section there is no was to undo or get it back. You are stuck having to re-type your music again! Also the chords do not align like you set them in edit mode. Much time is wasted trying to shift chords left and right to align them. I wasted my money with this app
Great app
by MikeLeeFont on 2015/11/02 00:12
Works great , use it the most, an I have'em all!
can't load PDF
by figmo124 on 2015/10/27 04:05
downloaded, sample song and my first entry. Drag and drop PDF to file share in iTunes. no show. closed, restart, now empty.
Great App
by coach4cats on 2015/10/12 02:32
I store all my songs here and use it for my set lists. Very useful app for me!
Nice app for transposing
by dennisonjc on 2015/10/10 09:02
It's nice to be able to jot down the chords in the original key, then easily transpose to other keys with a couple of clicks. Also, like the auto transpose feature when specifying capo usage. I just wish the "mono-spacing" font was the default so that the chords line up over the text when importing from a Text file. Easy to change but should default to that.
Great app
by Belldesign on 2015/10/07 23:58
I am a percussionist/singer so I mostly use it for words. It has been easy to use and to transfer songs to other musicians iPads.
I love this app
by coldspringaustin on 2015/09/30 02:00
Makes writing, transposing and storing all my songs super easy.
Great App!
by LaVoci on 2015/08/12 19:41
This is the best app I have found for scrolling lyric and chord charts. I love the set list and tagging features. I do wish the set list feature could total up the time of each set list for planning purposes. I have not been able to get the metronome to be audible even though the setting is enabled. I will work through that with support. I also wish the auto scroll speed could be set to a percentage of the song length for songs that have long intros or bridges. Bottom line, it is the best I have found!
Great app
by Cjmollo on 2015/07/16 21:19
Have had great luck with this app. Use it for all my gigs on my ipad.
Great functionality but...
by chad.meyers1 on 2015/06/20 05:09
It would be nice if I could load songs directly from the Internet. I had to hand enter all 67 songs, which is a lot initially but from here out it won't be as much having to add any new songs 1 or 2 at a time. That's all.
Really want to love it...
by JMyers77 on 2015/05/26 19:36
I purchased this app even though there were no ratings on it. I take full responsibility for that one. I'm a worship leader at a church in CA and thought it would be nice not to have to carry around a folder of worship music everywhere I go. When I purchased this app, I understood that this would not be a system where I could just pick worship music from an online database and have it download to my iPad. I followed their instructions to bring the music into a Word document and to save the file as a text only document. However, when it loads to the app it doesn't highlight the chords so you can see the different ways to play it on your guitar. Nor does it accurately display the verse, chorus, bridge headings, even though I had done so in Word. Finally, I had to play with where the chords would sit above the lyric, because even though it was correct in the Word document, once I tried to convert it, they would get misplaced. This is WAY too much work to have to do on an app that is supposed to make you life easier. I just wish I hadn't paid for the app and lost out on the money. I know it's a cheap app, but it's the disappointment in having purchased something that is completely useless to me. If the developer can make this work better for me I will gladly change my rating. Until then, I'm sorry, one star is all it's worth.
Useless
by Bluescat Guitar on 2015/01/22 00:46
Only import txt files. No PDF import. I sent en email to their so called “support”, no answer….. Do not waste your money on this app. iBooks does a much better work and it’s not even a “musician” appp !! Total waste of time and money. I want my money back !!!!!!
Fabulous!
by The Rabbit888 on 2014/10/29 20:08
Does what it's supposed to do. Really leverages the capability of the iPad to replace tons of ring binder notebooks! It's got all the chords I'll ever need. It's super easy to use, and share with. Plus, it really keeps songs and set lists organized. Only suggestion I have: better user control of scrolling speed. (it usually scrolls too fast.)
Looses information sometimes
by S0M3R@ND0MGUY on 2014/10/27 16:13
App is great except for the issue of loosing what you've just typed out (. Everything looks great on screen, but sometimes when you save, it doesn't & I only noticed this a couple times when I'm at practice with everyone! Pretty annoying...iOS 7 & 8.1 has the same problem)... Fix this please... I have already emailed regarding this issue..
Problems
by DFlitz on 2014/09/29 17:02
Ever since this new iOS update I have been having problems with the keyboard on my sets song. The keyboard is popping up and it won't go please fix this. I use this app all the time and it's great but this is a major problem. If not fixed I'll have to find another app to use.
In need of an update!!
by Heelsfan71 on 2014/09/28 16:51
Just like the others are saying, I'm having trouble with sets with iOS 8. I need this function to work properly because I'm in a band that performs regularly and I've got all my music saved in this app. I'm hoping this is fixed sooner than later
iOS 8 Update Issues
by Halesy-Poo on 2014/09/24 00:23
Since the ios8 update the mysongbook app has been not working correctly. When I attempt to use a set of songs that I created for a performance the keyboard automatically popped up and it will not hide itself again. It's like it is locked open. This made it impossible to set it to scroll which made the app quite useless to me. Is there an update coming to fix this issue? If not I may have to find another app for music.
Pretty Good
by rockelle83 on 2014/07/14 04:44
I like the app so far. I've only entered a couple of songs as of yet but it's working good. Love that it has uke chords! Would like to see a sync option between devices; that would make me feel more like it was worth the money.
Bad
by Baaaaaaaadddddd on 2014/07/04 03:04
Awful app. I want my money back...
I really love this app
by Davey TrueTapz on 2014/04/02 18:50
I can't stop using this app, I really love how it's so easy and so helpful at the same time. I use it for playing live and practice, I just wish it could show piano chords (it would be really cool) but overall I love it
Frustrating
by CCC_MDS on 2014/02/20 04:47
Adding Chord charts is cumbersome. Format changes in view mode. File sharing feature via iTunes is flakey. Would love the app if these thing s where remedied.
Save yourself some frustration
by alviecat on 2013/12/15 03:16
I don't know how many times I had to start over in edit mode. This app is clunky and non responsive. When I did finally get a song finished, I tried to email the chart. The app looked like it would use my current contacts but when I clicked to add them in the send field all it added was the name, no address. You would be better off with Onsong or iGigbook.
Getthisapp
by Zombie tacular on 2013/12/11 02:52
I cannot say enough how great this app is if you are simply looking for something to replace your 4,000 page binders with all your centuries old hand written or printer generated lyrics. It lets you download lyrics ( cut/paste ) from your favorite site ( mine is "epic lyrics" ) and simply copy into a new file in this program, then apply the key ( even has transpose for guitar with capo ) and write the chords directly above the words to easily follow along. Anyone that can't figure this thing out has just not spent a reasonable moment of time with it. For the songs that I need just a chart, I simply type it in using symbols between the alphabetical letter names ... Ex: BbM7 | Cm | D7b5 | Gm.... Etc For under 5 bucks.... Just get it!!!
Enjoyable songbook ap that lets you put your own songs in!
by Lorien Patton on 2013/11/18 16:58
Many of the programs that I tried only allow you to download chord charts, and not input your own songs from scratch... MySongbook is the exception, which is great for me because I'm a professional musician with a huge songbook of my own original material. MySongbook handles that task neatly. The only thing I might like to see included in future versions is the ability to format the lyrics. When a song calls for a duet, I usually differentiate between the parts by putting one singer's lyrics in italics... MySongbook will not yet let me do that, and I'm half@$$ing it by marking each line with hashtags, but italics or bold would definitely be better. Keep it up, and I look forward to using the program and hopefully seeing further updates :)
Rip-off
by Area 51 Man on 2013/09/30 01:14
Complete and utter rip-off. ChordTunes is a very limited application but it's a Cadillac in comparison to this one. Except this one has the Cadillac price tag.
Don't waste your money
by Waynelord39 on 2013/09/27 15:42
This app just does not work. The help is not understandable, and the developer can't be reached. Wish I had researched a little before spending the six dollars.
Great app
by cherishedge18 on 2013/09/26 13:58
Been waiting for something like this for a long time. The one problem is that I can't line up the chords. If this problem could be fixed, that would be great!

pesima / the worst
by Mikeruni on 2013/07/29 00:30
me robaron mi dinero ya que no puedo importar mis canciones dentro de la aplicación, y cuando intento crear una nueva canción, la aplicaccion se cierra. Quiero que me devuelvan mi dinero. Stolen my money, I can't import text files, I don't have support and the aplication all time crashes. I need my money in my pocket.
Minor key problems
by RCmusic1 on 2013/06/19 09:15
I was very happy when you updated the program to be able to select between major OR minor keys but the minor keys seem to be a bit buggy. The Nashville numbers and letter chords do not match. There seems to be a minor 3rd displacement (i.e. in the key of Bm 1m is displayed as Dm instead of the correct Bm). Great app and great functionality. I use it everyday. I will be glad when this bug is fixed, though.
Deleted all my work
by munch_munchster on 2013/05/21 15:04
When inspiration hit to write a song I quickly typed it into this app, thinking it would be a great place to edit and continue working on my song, and when I pressed done it deleted the entire thing. Thinking I must have pressed something wrong I thought oh well, I can remember most of it and it needed changing anyhow, I typed it in again. I pressed the done button and found my work deleted once more. So, so frustrating and what a useless app if you can't even add songs to it. In my frustration I have now forgotten most of my piece. In the future, I think I will stick to napkins.
Great!
by j,a,h on 2013/03/09 14:21
Very easy and efficient to use. Couldn't ask for anything better.
Double charge ?

This app helps me greatly, as a worship leader in a fast growing church I'm able to lead worship with no problem.
TERRIFIC MUSIC APP

This app has all the necessary elements for what I need and more. It is all at my fingertips. Thank you.
Best app for worship music files
by Ozman1977 on 2013/01/08 21:26
I bought this app some time ago and then never used it do to there not being a data base I could simply download songs from (me being lazy and looking for the easy button). I finally out of frustration with other apps decided to give it a try and enter in a few songs. WOW!!!!! This works better than anything else I have experienced, and I have waisted money on several other things. Take my advice, get some friends together, learn how to use the app correctly, and start building your data base in the mysongbook app. You will not regret this! Files can be emailed to other mysongbook users with ease, no more creating a chord chart for you in capo 3 and another copy for your keyboard in Bb. Creat 1 in Bb and let mysongbook do the rest of the work. Worship leaders, sending out set lists, and organizing your database is as simple as it gets with this. I can't say enough good things about this, if it's missing one thing, it's a place where mysongbook users could get together and share worship files to save time in building up a data base :) but with the amount of people that carry an iPad or iPhone to church these days it's probably easy enough to get your own worship team together to work on this. Anyway, get the app, build your data base, and stop spending money on paper and printer ink!
Wonderful
by Watermelon426 on 2012/12/27 18:11

Big Fan!
by Htstpa on 2012/12/06 03:18
Works as advertised...for once! Bought this after checking out a few others. This is the one for gigging musicians. Works great and is priced fairly. Would like to see a way to add sticky notes and a way to keep the chord picker open instead of it auto hiding after you pick a chord. I'm a fan of this app and have been using it for both vocals and guitar work for my top 40 band. Love the fact that I can shed tunes and share them via email among the other band members. That way we're all working from the same base charts. .txt import works well for me too. Rock on!
Greatest app
by Franktgetank2012 on 2012/11/05 04:16
Best app updates ever. This is a great app for people who already wrote charts for bands on a consistent basis NOT a shortcut for those just looking for chords.
Great tool to musicians
by Niliamse on 2012/10/27 19:39
I use it on my laptop and I love the transposing option, makes me save time while we r changing the chords on practice and performing as well. I suggest a sync option for the songs and sets, cause once I have the songs ready on my laptop I would like to have them on the iPhone or iPad as well without having to type or customize the chords again. Beside that this app is so great!
The only app of its kind
by Hexatron on 2012/10/17 05:45
I rarely take the time to write reviews, but I've been looking for an app like this for so long, and to finally have it is such a relief. I use this as a songwriting tool. "The song I'm writing moves from the I - the flat II... How do other songs I love follow that change?" Now I have those kinds of answers available. Make tags like "space" and "nostalgic," and next time you're trying to evoke those feelings, analyze other songs that express the same emotions to see how they got there. Even better, it looks like the app is constantly improving. Low-star reviews seem to be from users who want this app to be something it isn't. If you want a dynamic database of your songs and songs you love, which can easily shift around to suit your needs, this is an irreplaceable tool.
Disappointing
by Little sister Alice on 2012/08/24 21:00
Bought this by mistake instead of Or Sharir's app, which has the same name. The other app has a built-in browser for downloading chords directly...this one not so much.
Very nice
by Hoopingloop on 2012/08/23 20:56
I am a worship leader at a church and this is a great tool for creating song sheets and for practicing. The chord picker makes it really easy to insert chords. Also to add choruses and repeats or if you want to rearrange the song. Great job. Make a desktop version.
Could be a good app if....
by smartsboss on 2012/08/14 20:34
The app crash every time when I add a new tag... How many tags can I have ?... just 10 ?... no kidding me ! This is the worst issue about this app: You can't sync your files with your computer... you can make your text files in your computer and then upload to the app but you can't download from your app to a txt text file ! the app allow you to make a backup of your songs but just in a native format or in pdf...
Awesome!
by Outacontrolbiker on 2012/08/09 23:37
Works as advertised!! A must for any musician who plays by chords. The only thing I suggest, is a place to jot notes for each song.
Okish
by Tamizan on 2012/05/31 19:06
The app is really good except that I noticed that the transpose function does not correctly calculate and display the right notes. Will give full rating if the developer releases a new patch for this.
Good functionality, needs AirPrint, a few other tweaks
by Amen Dry Owl on 2012/05/26 03:16
This is a good app that simplifies creating chord charts. Adding and transposing chords is easy, and they automatically line up with the right syllable. Capoing is a breeze. Entering Edit mode from View mode is weird, in that you have to tap a button that looks disabled - hard to find. Also, the app could definitely use a couple features: - AirPrint support - Hyphenate syllables separated by chords (instead of a space) Overall, entering a chord chart in this app took a ton of time off entering in a standard word processor. Good stuff, and looking forward to future releases.
Won't work
by a_rod6723 on 2012/05/07 22:30

Best song app needs auto scroll
by Renlad2 on 2012/04/30 05:08
Wow this is a great app. Just what I was looking for. Works offline too! Love the email feature and tagging. Has auto scroll now! Love the abc ordering also. The perfect app for gigging and teaching.
Great product
by gtrguy on 2012/03/28 13:35
I love this app!! It is exactly what I was needing. The only thing I would like to see is a search feature on the main screen to quickly find songs. After the update the songs don't seem to scroll up and down as smoothly as they did before.

I’ve been looking for something to organize songs and do away with my binder. This app worked great. It does what it says without a lot of steps. I’m not real tech savvy so I wanted something that was easy to use. Once I figured out how to import songs I was able to enter them into mysongbook in about an hour. I entered about 50songs. About as long as it would take me to write 4 by hand. I also had a question and contacted Eric, the tech guy. My question was answered within a couple of hours. So great support. I highly recommend this app.

I have been using this app now for about 3 years ,I don’t know how I ever got along without it! This app will do everything you need it to do for your gigs!. It gets better! If you need it to do something more ,all you have to do is ask! The support Eric gives is second to none! If he can incorporate it into this app he will ,he has done it for me on several occasions. You will love this app and love the service you receive . I know I do !
Fantastic!
by Jud1958 on 2020/03/31 17:05
One of my new favorite apps! I am just learning how to play stringed instruments. I chose this app because of the ability to switch between uke, mandolin, guitar and banjo. All of the instruments I have!! It even allows baritone uke, again, the style I have. I do kind of wish that you could set the default instrument for each song instead of just the whole library, but it’s not a showstopper. Thanks for making this app!!
Use this all the time!
by The Big Kahuna F on 2019/05/24 11:30
I participate in community music nights 1-3 times per week and this app is great for keeping all my music in one handy compact place. The instant key change feature is perfect for getting the right cords when singers request different keys. Transferring cords and lyrics from Ultimate guitar tabs website is a bit cumbersome because of the “cord over lyrics” format but another program called Songpress makes conversion to Chordpro a snap.

Long time user of this app. Continues to be my favorite go to music app. Thanks for fixing the email button. One thing to keep in mind. If you have created any custom chords, back them up before upgrading the app. It appears that chords go back to the default after upgrading. Easy to restore if you have the backup. Charlie
It has some drawbacks but it’s alright

Chord display
by lasather on 2020/09/20 03:08
Is there a way to display chords differently? Many of the chords that are shown are not in the same fingering as I learned them. Can you provide a blank chord display option where I can add my own finger positions?
Very Helpful

If you are a songwriter or a performer this app is an excellent way to keep your lyrics and chords synced to your devices. Ability to transpose and set Bpm.
Enjoyable songbook ap that lets you put your own songs in!
by Lorien Patton on 2013/11/18 16:58
Many of the programs that I tried only allow you to download chord charts, and not input your own songs from scratch... MySongbook is the exception, which is great for me because I'm a professional musician with a huge songbook of my own original material. MySongbook handles that task neatly. The only thing I might like to see included in future versions is the ability to format the lyrics. When a song calls for a duet, I usually differentiate between the parts by putting one singer's lyrics in italics... MySongbook will not yet let me do that, and I'm half@$$ing it by marking each line with hashtags, but italics or bold would definitely be better. Keep it up, and I look forward to using the program and hopefully seeing further updates :)
Manual import
by CN MBP on 2018/10/15 00:32
Manually importing songs takes a lifetime. Why not add an option to import from word docs or the internet? Compelwtely useless app unless you want to spend hours typing lyrics and tabs on your phone keyboard.

Best app for worship music files
by Ozman1977 on 2013/01/08 21:26
I bought this app some time ago and then never used it do to there not being a data base I could simply download songs from (me being lazy and looking for the easy button). I finally out of frustration with other apps decided to give it a try and enter in a few songs. WOW!!!!! This works better than anything else I have experienced, and I have waisted money on several other things. Take my advice, get some friends together, learn how to use the app correctly, and start building your data base in the mysongbook app. You will not regret this! Files can be emailed to other mysongbook users with ease, no more creating a chord chart for you in capo 3 and another copy for your keyboard in Bb. Creat 1 in Bb and let mysongbook do the rest of the work. Worship leaders, sending out set lists, and organizing your database is as simple as it gets with this. I can't say enough good things about this, if it's missing one thing, it's a place where mysongbook users could get together and share worship files to save time in building up a data base :) but with the amount of people that carry an iPad or iPhone to church these days it's probably easy enough to get your own worship team together to work on this. Anyway, get the app, build your data base, and stop spending money on paper and printer ink!
The only app of its kind
by Hexatron on 2012/10/17 05:45
I rarely take the time to write reviews, but I've been looking for an app like this for so long, and to finally have it is such a relief. I use this as a songwriting tool. "The song I'm writing moves from the I - the flat II... How do other songs I love follow that change?" Now I have those kinds of answers available. Make tags like "space" and "nostalgic," and next time you're trying to evoke those feelings, analyze other songs that express the same emotions to see how they got there. Even better, it looks like the app is constantly improving. Low-star reviews seem to be from users who want this app to be something it isn't. If you want a dynamic database of your songs and songs you love, which can easily shift around to suit your needs, this is an irreplaceable tool.
Great App!
by LaVoci on 2015/08/12 19:41
This is the best app I have found for scrolling lyric and chord charts. I love the set list and tagging features. I do wish the set list feature could total up the time of each set list for planning purposes. I have not been able to get the metronome to be audible even though the setting is enabled. I will work through that with support. I also wish the auto scroll speed could be set to a percentage of the song length for songs that have long intros or bridges. Bottom line, it is the best I have found!
Really want to love it...
by JMyers77 on 2015/05/26 19:36
I purchased this app even though there were no ratings on it. I take full responsibility for that one. I'm a worship leader at a church in CA and thought it would be nice not to have to carry around a folder of worship music everywhere I go. When I purchased this app, I understood that this would not be a system where I could just pick worship music from an online database and have it download to my iPad. I followed their instructions to bring the music into a Word document and to save the file as a text only document. However, when it loads to the app it doesn't highlight the chords so you can see the different ways to play it on your guitar. Nor does it accurately display the verse, chorus, bridge headings, even though I had done so in Word. Finally, I had to play with where the chords would sit above the lyric, because even though it was correct in the Word document, once I tried to convert it, they would get misplaced. This is WAY too much work to have to do on an app that is supposed to make you life easier. I just wish I hadn't paid for the app and lost out on the money. I know it's a cheap app, but it's the disappointment in having purchased something that is completely useless to me. If the developer can make this work better for me I will gladly change my rating. Until then, I'm sorry, one star is all it's worth.
Getthisapp
by Zombie tacular on 2013/12/11 02:52
I cannot say enough how great this app is if you are simply looking for something to replace your 4,000 page binders with all your centuries old hand written or printer generated lyrics. It lets you download lyrics ( cut/paste ) from your favorite site ( mine is "epic lyrics" ) and simply copy into a new file in this program, then apply the key ( even has transpose for guitar with capo ) and write the chords directly above the words to easily follow along. Anyone that can't figure this thing out has just not spent a reasonable moment of time with it. For the songs that I need just a chart, I simply type it in using symbols between the alphabetical letter names ... Ex: BbM7 | Cm | D7b5 | Gm.... Etc For under 5 bucks.... Just get it!!!
Big Fan!
by Htstpa on 2012/12/06 03:18
Works as advertised...for once! Bought this after checking out a few others. This is the one for gigging musicians. Works great and is priced fairly. Would like to see a way to add sticky notes and a way to keep the chord picker open instead of it auto hiding after you pick a chord. I'm a fan of this app and have been using it for both vocals and guitar work for my top 40 band. Love the fact that I can shed tunes and share them via email among the other band members. That way we're all working from the same base charts. .txt import works well for me too. Rock on!
iOS 8 Update Issues
by Halesy-Poo on 2014/09/24 00:23
Since the ios8 update the mysongbook app has been not working correctly. When I attempt to use a set of songs that I created for a performance the keyboard automatically popped up and it will not hide itself again. It's like it is locked open. This made it impossible to set it to scroll which made the app quite useless to me. Is there an update coming to fix this issue? If not I may have to find another app for music.
Great tool to musicians
by Niliamse on 2012/10/27 19:39
I use it on my laptop and I love the transposing option, makes me save time while we r changing the chords on practice and performing as well. I suggest a sync option for the songs and sets, cause once I have the songs ready on my laptop I would like to have them on the iPhone or iPad as well without having to type or customize the chords again. Beside that this app is so great!
Deleted all my work
by munch_munchster on 2013/05/21 15:04
When inspiration hit to write a song I quickly typed it into this app, thinking it would be a great place to edit and continue working on my song, and when I pressed done it deleted the entire thing. Thinking I must have pressed something wrong I thought oh well, I can remember most of it and it needed changing anyhow, I typed it in again. I pressed the done button and found my work deleted once more. So, so frustrating and what a useless app if you can't even add songs to it. In my frustration I have now forgotten most of my piece. In the future, I think I will stick to napkins.
Nice app for transposing
by dennisonjc on 2015/10/10 09:02
It's nice to be able to jot down the chords in the original key, then easily transpose to other keys with a couple of clicks. Also, like the auto transpose feature when specifying capo usage. I just wish the "mono-spacing" font was the default so that the chords line up over the text when importing from a Text file. Easy to change but should default to that.
Problems
by DFlitz on 2014/09/29 17:02
Ever since this new iOS update I have been having problems with the keyboard on my sets song. The keyboard is popping up and it won't go please fix this. I use this app all the time and it's great but this is a major problem. If not fixed I'll have to find another app to use.
Fabulous!
by The Rabbit888 on 2014/10/29 20:08
Does what it's supposed to do. Really leverages the capability of the iPad to replace tons of ring binder notebooks! It's got all the chords I'll ever need. It's super easy to use, and share with. Plus, it really keeps songs and set lists organized. Only suggestion I have: better user control of scrolling speed. (it usually scrolls too fast.)
Great product
by gtrguy on 2012/03/28 13:35
I love this app!! It is exactly what I was needing. The only thing I would like to see is a search feature on the main screen to quickly find songs. After the update the songs don't seem to scroll up and down as smoothly as they did before.
Minor key problems
by RCmusic1 on 2013/06/19 09:15
I was very happy when you updated the program to be able to select between major OR minor keys but the minor keys seem to be a bit buggy. The Nashville numbers and letter chords do not match. There seems to be a minor 3rd displacement (i.e. in the key of Bm 1m is displayed as Dm instead of the correct Bm). Great app and great functionality. I use it everyday. I will be glad when this bug is fixed, though.
In need of an update!!
by Heelsfan71 on 2014/09/28 16:51
Just like the others are saying, I'm having trouble with sets with iOS 8. I need this function to work properly because I'm in a band that performs regularly and I've got all my music saved in this app. I'm hoping this is fixed sooner than later
Looses information sometimes
by S0M3R@ND0MGUY on 2014/10/27 16:13
App is great except for the issue of loosing what you've just typed out (. Everything looks great on screen, but sometimes when you save, it doesn't & I only noticed this a couple times when I'm at practice with everyone! Pretty annoying...iOS 7 & 8.1 has the same problem)... Fix this please... I have already emailed regarding this issue..
Good functionality, needs AirPrint, a few other tweaks
by Amen Dry Owl on 2012/05/26 03:16
This is a good app that simplifies creating chord charts. Adding and transposing chords is easy, and they automatically line up with the right syllable. Capoing is a breeze. Entering Edit mode from View mode is weird, in that you have to tap a button that looks disabled - hard to find. Also, the app could definitely use a couple features: - AirPrint support - Hyphenate syllables separated by chords (instead of a space) Overall, entering a chord chart in this app took a ton of time off entering in a standard word processor. Good stuff, and looking forward to future releases.
Great functionality but...
by chad.meyers1 on 2015/06/20 05:09
It would be nice if I could load songs directly from the Internet. I had to hand enter all 67 songs, which is a lot initially but from here out it won't be as much having to add any new songs 1 or 2 at a time. That's all.
Pretty Good
by rockelle83 on 2014/07/14 04:44
I like the app so far. I've only entered a couple of songs as of yet but it's working good. Love that it has uke chords! Would like to see a sync option between devices; that would make me feel more like it was worth the money.
Horrible app!!!!!
by Phil Vaughn on 2015/11/08 01:07
You can spend hours getting your music typed perfectly yet if you make the smallest change or accidentally delete a section there is no was to undo or get it back. You are stuck having to re-type your music again! Also the chords do not align like you set them in edit mode. Much time is wasted trying to shift chords left and right to align them. I wasted my money with this app
Save yourself some frustration
by alviecat on 2013/12/15 03:16
I don't know how many times I had to start over in edit mode. This app is clunky and non responsive. When I did finally get a song finished, I tried to email the chart. The app looked like it would use my current contacts but when I clicked to add them in the send field all it added was the name, no address. You would be better off with Onsong or iGigbook.
Best song app needs auto scroll
by Renlad2 on 2012/04/30 05:08
Wow this is a great app. Just what I was looking for. Works offline too! Love the email feature and tagging. Has auto scroll now! Love the abc ordering also. The perfect app for gigging and teaching.
I really love this app
by Davey TrueTapz on 2014/04/02 18:50
I can't stop using this app, I really love how it's so easy and so helpful at the same time. I use it for playing live and practice, I just wish it could show piano chords (it would be really cool) but overall I love it
Very nice
by Hoopingloop on 2012/08/23 20:56
I am a worship leader at a church and this is a great tool for creating song sheets and for practicing. The chord picker makes it really easy to insert chords. Also to add choruses and repeats or if you want to rearrange the song. Great job. Make a desktop version.
My music bible
by Lilburn Ga on 2016/03/11 14:41

Great app
by cherishedge18 on 2013/09/26 13:58
Been waiting for something like this for a long time. The one problem is that I can't line up the chords. If this problem could be fixed, that would be great!
Great app

I am a percussionist/singer so I mostly use it for words. It has been easy to use and to transfer songs to other musicians iPads.
Great App

Great app for songbook list sharing and adding new and old music. Best I seen and used. Improve it as your reviewers are suggesting and you'll pull more consumers! Aloha.
Awesome!
by Outacontrolbiker on 2012/08/09 23:37
Works as advertised!! A must for any musician who plays by chords. The only thing I suggest, is a place to jot notes for each song.

by smartsboss on 2012/08/14 20:34
The app crash every time when I add a new tag... How many tags can I have ?... just 10 ?... no kidding me ! This is the worst issue about this app: You can't sync your files with your computer... you can make your text files in your computer and then upload to the app but you can't download from your app to a txt text file ! the app allow you to make a backup of your songs but just in a native format or in pdf...

by Murdock Scott on 2018/05/03 16:00
I went looking for a replacement for a straightforward little chord sheet app that I used to use called ChordTunes which became abandon in iOS 11. I was pleased to find that you offered something similar! Odd that there are so few apps that offer chord charts for Guitar, Ukulele, and Mandolin. So five stars right off the bat for that feature! We had some discussions about Seline and OMG guitar in the past and as I recall, you were very helpful with an issue involving Seline libraries. So I am glad to have another opportunity to support your efforts and hopeful that this app will suit my needs. And it it doesn’t, I assure you that I will contact you if I have any requests for improvements. Heh.
The best sheet music app out there!!!

I love this app it's a great help Buen trabajo,me encanta es de gran ayuda
Expected more
by Hush eggs on 2015/12/23 21:52
It is not very user friendly, and it is hard to edit songs, but it did do its job, just not very well. I wouldn't recommend this app.
Great App
by dsty32 on 2015/12/12 10:09
Great app for songbook list sharing and adding new and old music. Best I seen and used. Improve it as your reviewers are suggesting and you'll pull more consumers! Aloha.
Horrible app!!!!!
by Phil Vaughn on 2015/11/08 01:07
You can spend hours getting your music typed perfectly yet if you make the smallest change or accidentally delete a section there is no was to undo or get it back. You are stuck having to re-type your music again! Also the chords do not align like you set them in edit mode. Much time is wasted trying to shift chords left and right to align them. I wasted my money with this app
Great app
by MikeLeeFont on 2015/11/02 00:12
Works great , use it the most, an I have'em all!
can't load PDF
by figmo124 on 2015/10/27 04:05
downloaded, sample song and my first entry. Drag and drop PDF to file share in iTunes. no show. closed, restart, now empty.
Great App
by coach4cats on 2015/10/12 02:32
I store all my songs here and use it for my set lists. Very useful app for me!
Nice app for transposing
by dennisonjc on 2015/10/10 09:02
It's nice to be able to jot down the chords in the original key, then easily transpose to other keys with a couple of clicks. Also, like the auto transpose feature when specifying capo usage. I just wish the "mono-spacing" font was the default so that the chords line up over the text when importing from a Text file. Easy to change but should default to that.
Great app
by Belldesign on 2015/10/07 23:58
I am a percussionist/singer so I mostly use it for words. It has been easy to use and to transfer songs to other musicians iPads.
I love this app
by coldspringaustin on 2015/09/30 02:00
Makes writing, transposing and storing all my songs super easy.
Great App!
by LaVoci on 2015/08/12 19:41
This is the best app I have found for scrolling lyric and chord charts. I love the set list and tagging features. I do wish the set list feature could total up the time of each set list for planning purposes. I have not been able to get the metronome to be audible even though the setting is enabled. I will work through that with support. I also wish the auto scroll speed could be set to a percentage of the song length for songs that have long intros or bridges. Bottom line, it is the best I have found!
Great app
by Cjmollo on 2015/07/16 21:19
Have had great luck with this app. Use it for all my gigs on my ipad.
Great functionality but...
by chad.meyers1 on 2015/06/20 05:09
It would be nice if I could load songs directly from the Internet. I had to hand enter all 67 songs, which is a lot initially but from here out it won't be as much having to add any new songs 1 or 2 at a time. That's all.
Really want to love it...
by JMyers77 on 2015/05/26 19:36
I purchased this app even though there were no ratings on it. I take full responsibility for that one. I'm a worship leader at a church in CA and thought it would be nice not to have to carry around a folder of worship music everywhere I go. When I purchased this app, I understood that this would not be a system where I could just pick worship music from an online database and have it download to my iPad. I followed their instructions to bring the music into a Word document and to save the file as a text only document. However, when it loads to the app it doesn't highlight the chords so you can see the different ways to play it on your guitar. Nor does it accurately display the verse, chorus, bridge headings, even though I had done so in Word. Finally, I had to play with where the chords would sit above the lyric, because even though it was correct in the Word document, once I tried to convert it, they would get misplaced. This is WAY too much work to have to do on an app that is supposed to make you life easier. I just wish I hadn't paid for the app and lost out on the money. I know it's a cheap app, but it's the disappointment in having purchased something that is completely useless to me. If the developer can make this work better for me I will gladly change my rating. Until then, I'm sorry, one star is all it's worth.
Useless
by Bluescat Guitar on 2015/01/22 00:46
Only import txt files. No PDF import. I sent en email to their so called “support”, no answer….. Do not waste your money on this app. iBooks does a much better work and it’s not even a “musician” appp !! Total waste of time and money. I want my money back !!!!!!
Fabulous!
by The Rabbit888 on 2014/10/29 20:08
Does what it's supposed to do. Really leverages the capability of the iPad to replace tons of ring binder notebooks! It's got all the chords I'll ever need. It's super easy to use, and share with. Plus, it really keeps songs and set lists organized. Only suggestion I have: better user control of scrolling speed. (it usually scrolls too fast.)
Looses information sometimes
by S0M3R@ND0MGUY on 2014/10/27 16:13
App is great except for the issue of loosing what you've just typed out (. Everything looks great on screen, but sometimes when you save, it doesn't & I only noticed this a couple times when I'm at practice with everyone! Pretty annoying...iOS 7 & 8.1 has the same problem)... Fix this please... I have already emailed regarding this issue..
Problems
by DFlitz on 2014/09/29 17:02
Ever since this new iOS update I have been having problems with the keyboard on my sets song. The keyboard is popping up and it won't go please fix this. I use this app all the time and it's great but this is a major problem. If not fixed I'll have to find another app to use.
In need of an update!!
by Heelsfan71 on 2014/09/28 16:51
Just like the others are saying, I'm having trouble with sets with iOS 8. I need this function to work properly because I'm in a band that performs regularly and I've got all my music saved in this app. I'm hoping this is fixed sooner than later
iOS 8 Update Issues
by Halesy-Poo on 2014/09/24 00:23
Since the ios8 update the mysongbook app has been not working correctly. When I attempt to use a set of songs that I created for a performance the keyboard automatically popped up and it will not hide itself again. It's like it is locked open. This made it impossible to set it to scroll which made the app quite useless to me. Is there an update coming to fix this issue? If not I may have to find another app for music.
Pretty Good
by rockelle83 on 2014/07/14 04:44
I like the app so far. I've only entered a couple of songs as of yet but it's working good. Love that it has uke chords! Would like to see a sync option between devices; that would make me feel more like it was worth the money.
Bad
by Baaaaaaaadddddd on 2014/07/04 03:04
Awful app. I want my money back...
I really love this app
by Davey TrueTapz on 2014/04/02 18:50
I can't stop using this app, I really love how it's so easy and so helpful at the same time. I use it for playing live and practice, I just wish it could show piano chords (it would be really cool) but overall I love it
Frustrating
by CCC_MDS on 2014/02/20 04:47
Adding Chord charts is cumbersome. Format changes in view mode. File sharing feature via iTunes is flakey. Would love the app if these thing s where remedied.
Save yourself some frustration
by alviecat on 2013/12/15 03:16
I don't know how many times I had to start over in edit mode. This app is clunky and non responsive. When I did finally get a song finished, I tried to email the chart. The app looked like it would use my current contacts but when I clicked to add them in the send field all it added was the name, no address. You would be better off with Onsong or iGigbook.
Getthisapp
by Zombie tacular on 2013/12/11 02:52
I cannot say enough how great this app is if you are simply looking for something to replace your 4,000 page binders with all your centuries old hand written or printer generated lyrics. It lets you download lyrics ( cut/paste ) from your favorite site ( mine is "epic lyrics" ) and simply copy into a new file in this program, then apply the key ( even has transpose for guitar with capo ) and write the chords directly above the words to easily follow along. Anyone that can't figure this thing out has just not spent a reasonable moment of time with it. For the songs that I need just a chart, I simply type it in using symbols between the alphabetical letter names ... Ex: BbM7 | Cm | D7b5 | Gm.... Etc For under 5 bucks.... Just get it!!!
Enjoyable songbook ap that lets you put your own songs in!
by Lorien Patton on 2013/11/18 16:58
Many of the programs that I tried only allow you to download chord charts, and not input your own songs from scratch... MySongbook is the exception, which is great for me because I'm a professional musician with a huge songbook of my own original material. MySongbook handles that task neatly. The only thing I might like to see included in future versions is the ability to format the lyrics. When a song calls for a duet, I usually differentiate between the parts by putting one singer's lyrics in italics... MySongbook will not yet let me do that, and I'm half@$$ing it by marking each line with hashtags, but italics or bold would definitely be better. Keep it up, and I look forward to using the program and hopefully seeing further updates :)
Rip-off
by Area 51 Man on 2013/09/30 01:14
Complete and utter rip-off. ChordTunes is a very limited application but it's a Cadillac in comparison to this one. Except this one has the Cadillac price tag.
Don't waste your money
by Waynelord39 on 2013/09/27 15:42
This app just does not work. The help is not understandable, and the developer can't be reached. Wish I had researched a little before spending the six dollars.
Great app
by cherishedge18 on 2013/09/26 13:58
Been waiting for something like this for a long time. The one problem is that I can't line up the chords. If this problem could be fixed, that would be great!

pesima / the worst
by Mikeruni on 2013/07/29 00:30
me robaron mi dinero ya que no puedo importar mis canciones dentro de la aplicación, y cuando intento crear una nueva canción, la aplicaccion se cierra. Quiero que me devuelvan mi dinero. Stolen my money, I can't import text files, I don't have support and the aplication all time crashes. I need my money in my pocket.
Minor key problems
by RCmusic1 on 2013/06/19 09:15
I was very happy when you updated the program to be able to select between major OR minor keys but the minor keys seem to be a bit buggy. The Nashville numbers and letter chords do not match. There seems to be a minor 3rd displacement (i.e. in the key of Bm 1m is displayed as Dm instead of the correct Bm). Great app and great functionality. I use it everyday. I will be glad when this bug is fixed, though.
Deleted all my work
by munch_munchster on 2013/05/21 15:04
When inspiration hit to write a song I quickly typed it into this app, thinking it would be a great place to edit and continue working on my song, and when I pressed done it deleted the entire thing. Thinking I must have pressed something wrong I thought oh well, I can remember most of it and it needed changing anyhow, I typed it in again. I pressed the done button and found my work deleted once more. So, so frustrating and what a useless app if you can't even add songs to it. In my frustration I have now forgotten most of my piece. In the future, I think I will stick to napkins.
Great!
by j,a,h on 2013/03/09 14:21
Very easy and efficient to use. Couldn't ask for anything better.
Double charge ?

This app helps me greatly, as a worship leader in a fast growing church I'm able to lead worship with no problem.
TERRIFIC MUSIC APP

Best app for worship music files
by Ozman1977 on 2013/01/08 21:26
I bought this app some time ago and then never used it do to there not being a data base I could simply download songs from (me being lazy and looking for the easy button). I finally out of frustration with other apps decided to give it a try and enter in a few songs. WOW!!!!! This works better than anything else I have experienced, and I have waisted money on several other things. Take my advice, get some friends together, learn how to use the app correctly, and start building your data base in the mysongbook app. You will not regret this! Files can be emailed to other mysongbook users with ease, no more creating a chord chart for you in capo 3 and another copy for your keyboard in Bb. Creat 1 in Bb and let mysongbook do the rest of the work. Worship leaders, sending out set lists, and organizing your database is as simple as it gets with this. I can't say enough good things about this, if it's missing one thing, it's a place where mysongbook users could get together and share worship files to save time in building up a data base :) but with the amount of people that carry an iPad or iPhone to church these days it's probably easy enough to get your own worship team together to work on this. Anyway, get the app, build your data base, and stop spending money on paper and printer ink!
Wonderful

Big Fan!
by Htstpa on 2012/12/06 03:18
Works as advertised...for once! Bought this after checking out a few others. This is the one for gigging musicians. Works great and is priced fairly. Would like to see a way to add sticky notes and a way to keep the chord picker open instead of it auto hiding after you pick a chord. I'm a fan of this app and have been using it for both vocals and guitar work for my top 40 band. Love the fact that I can shed tunes and share them via email among the other band members. That way we're all working from the same base charts. .txt import works well for me too. Rock on!
Greatest app
by Franktgetank2012 on 2012/11/05 04:16
Best app updates ever. This is a great app for people who already wrote charts for bands on a consistent basis NOT a shortcut for those just looking for chords.
Great tool to musicians
by Niliamse on 2012/10/27 19:39
I use it on my laptop and I love the transposing option, makes me save time while we r changing the chords on practice and performing as well. I suggest a sync option for the songs and sets, cause once I have the songs ready on my laptop I would like to have them on the iPhone or iPad as well without having to type or customize the chords again. Beside that this app is so great!
The only app of its kind
by Hexatron on 2012/10/17 05:45
I rarely take the time to write reviews, but I've been looking for an app like this for so long, and to finally have it is such a relief. I use this as a songwriting tool. "The song I'm writing moves from the I - the flat II... How do other songs I love follow that change?" Now I have those kinds of answers available. Make tags like "space" and "nostalgic," and next time you're trying to evoke those feelings, analyze other songs that express the same emotions to see how they got there. Even better, it looks like the app is constantly improving. Low-star reviews seem to be from users who want this app to be something it isn't. If you want a dynamic database of your songs and songs you love, which can easily shift around to suit your needs, this is an irreplaceable tool.
Disappointing
by Little sister Alice on 2012/08/24 21:00
Bought this by mistake instead of Or Sharir's app, which has the same name. The other app has a built-in browser for downloading chords directly...this one not so much.
Very nice
by Hoopingloop on 2012/08/23 20:56
I am a worship leader at a church and this is a great tool for creating song sheets and for practicing. The chord picker makes it really easy to insert chords. Also to add choruses and repeats or if you want to rearrange the song. Great job. Make a desktop version.
Could be a good app if....
by smartsboss on 2012/08/14 20:34
The app crash every time when I add a new tag... How many tags can I have ?... just 10 ?... no kidding me ! This is the worst issue about this app: You can't sync your files with your computer... you can make your text files in your computer and then upload to the app but you can't download from your app to a txt text file ! the app allow you to make a backup of your songs but just in a native format or in pdf...
Awesome!
by Outacontrolbiker on 2012/08/09 23:37
Works as advertised!! A must for any musician who plays by chords. The only thing I suggest, is a place to jot notes for each song.
Okish
by Tamizan on 2012/05/31 19:06
The app is really good except that I noticed that the transpose function does not correctly calculate and display the right notes. Will give full rating if the developer releases a new patch for this.
Good functionality, needs AirPrint, a few other tweaks
by Amen Dry Owl on 2012/05/26 03:16
This is a good app that simplifies creating chord charts. Adding and transposing chords is easy, and they automatically line up with the right syllable. Capoing is a breeze. Entering Edit mode from View mode is weird, in that you have to tap a button that looks disabled - hard to find. Also, the app could definitely use a couple features: - AirPrint support - Hyphenate syllables separated by chords (instead of a space) Overall, entering a chord chart in this app took a ton of time off entering in a standard word processor. Good stuff, and looking forward to future releases.
Won't work

Best song app needs auto scroll
by Renlad2 on 2012/04/30 05:08
Wow this is a great app. Just what I was looking for. Works offline too! Love the email feature and tagging. Has auto scroll now! Love the abc ordering also. The perfect app for gigging and teaching.
Great product
by gtrguy on 2012/03/28 13:35
I love this app!! It is exactly what I was needing. The only thing I would like to see is a search feature on the main screen to quickly find songs. After the update the songs don't seem to scroll up and down as smoothly as they did before.

Double Tap!!
by ColaRedStrat11 on 2018/09/18 15:05
Please stop the app from going back to the song list when I double tap to place the cursor where I need it. There is already an arrow at the bottom that does that function. It would be nice to place the cursor where I need it. Thanks Dave
Ah, zCage! We meet again!
by Murdock Scott on 2018/05/03 16:00
I went looking for a replacement for a straightforward little chord sheet app that I used to use called ChordTunes which became abandon in iOS 11. I was pleased to find that you offered something similar! Odd that there are so few apps that offer chord charts for Guitar, Ukulele, and Mandolin. So five stars right off the bat for that feature! We had some discussions about Seline and OMG guitar in the past and as I recall, you were very helpful with an issue involving Seline libraries. So I am glad to have another opportunity to support your efforts and hopeful that this app will suit my needs. And it it doesn’t, I assure you that I will contact you if I have any requests for improvements. Heh.
Great app
by Xble on 2018/04/01 21:41
I’ve been looking for something to organize songs and do away with my binder. This app worked great. It does what it says without a lot of steps. I’m not real tech savvy so I wanted something that was easy to use. Once I figured out how to import songs I was able to enter them into mysongbook in about an hour. I entered about 50songs. About as long as it would take me to write 4 by hand. I also had a question and contacted Eric, the tech guy. My question was answered within a couple of hours. So great support. I highly recommend this app.
App and Support
by morabitounplugged on 2020/11/06 02:28
I have been using this app now for about 3 years ,I don’t know how I ever got along without it! This app will do everything you need it to do for your gigs!. It gets better! If you need it to do something more ,all you have to do is ask! The support Eric gives is second to none! If he can incorporate it into this app he will ,he has done it for me on several occasions. You will love this app and love the service you receive . I know I do !
Fantastic!
by Jud1958 on 2020/03/31 17:05
One of my new favorite apps! I am just learning how to play stringed instruments. I chose this app because of the ability to switch between uke, mandolin, guitar and banjo. All of the instruments I have!! It even allows baritone uke, again, the style I have. I do kind of wish that you could set the default instrument for each song instead of just the whole library, but it’s not a showstopper. Thanks for making this app!!
Use this all the time!
by The Big Kahuna F on 2019/05/24 11:30
I participate in community music nights 1-3 times per week and this app is great for keeping all my music in one handy compact place. The instant key change feature is perfect for getting the right cords when singers request different keys. Transferring cords and lyrics from Ultimate guitar tabs website is a bit cumbersome because of the “cord over lyrics” format but another program called Songpress makes conversion to Chordpro a snap.
New Update
by CharlieST47 on 2020/02/23 12:57
Long time user of this app. Continues to be my favorite go to music app. Thanks for fixing the email button. One thing to keep in mind. If you have created any custom chords, back them up before upgrading the app. It appears that chords go back to the default after upgrading. Easy to restore if you have the backup. Charlie
It has some drawbacks but it’s alright
by HERricane CAMILLE on 2019/03/07 22:16
It has some drawbacks but it’s alright. More customization of song pages would be fab.

Chord display
by lasather on 2020/09/20 03:08
Is there a way to display chords differently? Many of the chords that are shown are not in the same fingering as I learned them. Can you provide a blank chord display option where I can add my own finger positions?
Very Helpful
by TRBowles on 2018/03/24 02:41
If you are a songwriter or a performer this app is an excellent way to keep your lyrics and chords synced to your devices. Ability to transpose and set Bpm.

Manual import
by CN MBP on 2018/10/15 00:32
Manually importing songs takes a lifetime. Why not add an option to import from word docs or the internet? Compelwtely useless app unless you want to spend hours typing lyrics and tabs on your phone keyboard.

This is the best app I have found for scrolling lyric and chord charts. I love the set list and tagging features. I do wish the set list feature could total up the time of each set list for planning purposes. I have not been able to get the metronome to be audible even though the setting is enabled. I will work through that with support. I also wish the auto scroll speed could be set to a percentage of the song length for songs that have long intros or bridges. Bottom line, it is the best I have found!

I'm a worship leader at a church in CA and thought it would be nice not to have to carry around a folder of worship music everywhere I go. When I purchased this app, I understood that this would not be a system where I could just pick worship music from an online database and have it download to my iPad. I followed their instructions to bring the music into a Word document and to save the file as a text only document. However, when it loads to the app it doesn't highlight the chords so you can see the different ways to play it on your guitar. Nor does it accurately display the verse, chorus, bridge headings, even though I had done so in Word. Finally, I had to play with where the chords would sit above the lyric, because even though it was correct in the Word document, once I tried to convert it, they would get misplaced. This is WAY too much work to have to do on an app that is supposed to make you life easier. I just wish I hadn't paid for the app and lost out on the money. I know it's a cheap app, but it's the disappointment in having purchased something that is completely useless to me. If the developer can make this work better for me I will gladly change my rating. Until then, I'm sorry, one star is all it's worth.
Getthisapp

I cannot say enough how great this app is if you are simply looking for something to replace your 4,000 page binders with all your centuries old hand written or printer generated lyrics. It lets you download lyrics ( cut/paste ) from your favorite site ( mine is "epic lyrics" ) and simply copy into a new file in this program, then apply the key ( even has transpose for guitar with capo ) and write the chords directly above the words to easily follow along. Anyone that can't figure this thing out has just not spent a reasonable moment of time with it. For the songs that I need just a chart, I simply type it in using symbols between the alphabetical letter names ... Ex: BbM7 | Cm | D7b5 | Gm.... Etc For under 5 bucks.... Just get it!!!
Big Fan!

Works as advertised...for once! Bought this after checking out a few others. This is the one for gigging musicians. Works great and is priced fairly. Would like to see a way to add sticky notes and a way to keep the chord picker open instead of it auto hiding after you pick a chord. I'm a fan of this app and have been using it for both vocals and guitar work for my top 40 band. Love the fact that I can shed tunes and share them via email among the other band members. That way we're all working from the same base charts. .txt import works well for me too. Rock on!
iOS 8 Update Issues
by Halesy-Poo on 2014/09/24 00:23
Since the ios8 update the mysongbook app has been not working correctly. When I attempt to use a set of songs that I created for a performance the keyboard automatically popped up and it will not hide itself again. It's like it is locked open. This made it impossible to set it to scroll which made the app quite useless to me. Is there an update coming to fix this issue? If not I may have to find another app for music.
Great tool to musicians
by Niliamse on 2012/10/27 19:39
I use it on my laptop and I love the transposing option, makes me save time while we r changing the chords on practice and performing as well. I suggest a sync option for the songs and sets, cause once I have the songs ready on my laptop I would like to have them on the iPhone or iPad as well without having to type or customize the chords again. Beside that this app is so great!
Deleted all my work
by munch_munchster on 2013/05/21 15:04
When inspiration hit to write a song I quickly typed it into this app, thinking it would be a great place to edit and continue working on my song, and when I pressed done it deleted the entire thing. Thinking I must have pressed something wrong I thought oh well, I can remember most of it and it needed changing anyhow, I typed it in again. I pressed the done button and found my work deleted once more. So, so frustrating and what a useless app if you can't even add songs to it. In my frustration I have now forgotten most of my piece. In the future, I think I will stick to napkins.
Nice app for transposing
by dennisonjc on 2015/10/10 09:02
It's nice to be able to jot down the chords in the original key, then easily transpose to other keys with a couple of clicks. Also, like the auto transpose feature when specifying capo usage. I just wish the "mono-spacing" font was the default so that the chords line up over the text when importing from a Text file. Easy to change but should default to that.
Problems
by DFlitz on 2014/09/29 17:02
Ever since this new iOS update I have been having problems with the keyboard on my sets song. The keyboard is popping up and it won't go please fix this. I use this app all the time and it's great but this is a major problem. If not fixed I'll have to find another app to use.
Fabulous!
by The Rabbit888 on 2014/10/29 20:08
Does what it's supposed to do. Really leverages the capability of the iPad to replace tons of ring binder notebooks! It's got all the chords I'll ever need. It's super easy to use, and share with. Plus, it really keeps songs and set lists organized. Only suggestion I have: better user control of scrolling speed. (it usually scrolls too fast.)
Great product
by gtrguy on 2012/03/28 13:35
I love this app!! It is exactly what I was needing. The only thing I would like to see is a search feature on the main screen to quickly find songs. After the update the songs don't seem to scroll up and down as smoothly as they did before.
Minor key problems
by RCmusic1 on 2013/06/19 09:15
I was very happy when you updated the program to be able to select between major OR minor keys but the minor keys seem to be a bit buggy. The Nashville numbers and letter chords do not match. There seems to be a minor 3rd displacement (i.e. in the key of Bm 1m is displayed as Dm instead of the correct Bm). Great app and great functionality. I use it everyday. I will be glad when this bug is fixed, though.
In need of an update!!
by Heelsfan71 on 2014/09/28 16:51
Just like the others are saying, I'm having trouble with sets with iOS 8. I need this function to work properly because I'm in a band that performs regularly and I've got all my music saved in this app. I'm hoping this is fixed sooner than later
Looses information sometimes
by S0M3R@ND0MGUY on 2014/10/27 16:13
App is great except for the issue of loosing what you've just typed out (. Everything looks great on screen, but sometimes when you save, it doesn't & I only noticed this a couple times when I'm at practice with everyone! Pretty annoying...iOS 7 & 8.1 has the same problem)... Fix this please... I have already emailed regarding this issue..
Good functionality, needs AirPrint, a few other tweaks
by Amen Dry Owl on 2012/05/26 03:16
This is a good app that simplifies creating chord charts. Adding and transposing chords is easy, and they automatically line up with the right syllable. Capoing is a breeze. Entering Edit mode from View mode is weird, in that you have to tap a button that looks disabled - hard to find. Also, the app could definitely use a couple features: - AirPrint support - Hyphenate syllables separated by chords (instead of a space) Overall, entering a chord chart in this app took a ton of time off entering in a standard word processor. Good stuff, and looking forward to future releases.
Great functionality but...
by chad.meyers1 on 2015/06/20 05:09
It would be nice if I could load songs directly from the Internet. I had to hand enter all 67 songs, which is a lot initially but from here out it won't be as much having to add any new songs 1 or 2 at a time. That's all.
Pretty Good
by rockelle83 on 2014/07/14 04:44
I like the app so far. I've only entered a couple of songs as of yet but it's working good. Love that it has uke chords! Would like to see a sync option between devices; that would make me feel more like it was worth the money.
Horrible app!!!!!
by Phil Vaughn on 2015/11/08 01:07
You can spend hours getting your music typed perfectly yet if you make the smallest change or accidentally delete a section there is no was to undo or get it back. You are stuck having to re-type your music again! Also the chords do not align like you set them in edit mode. Much time is wasted trying to shift chords left and right to align them. I wasted my money with this app
Save yourself some frustration
by alviecat on 2013/12/15 03:16
I don't know how many times I had to start over in edit mode. This app is clunky and non responsive. When I did finally get a song finished, I tried to email the chart. The app looked like it would use my current contacts but when I clicked to add them in the send field all it added was the name, no address. You would be better off with Onsong or iGigbook.
Best song app needs auto scroll
by Renlad2 on 2012/04/30 05:08
Wow this is a great app. Just what I was looking for. Works offline too! Love the email feature and tagging. Has auto scroll now! Love the abc ordering also. The perfect app for gigging and teaching.
I really love this app
by Davey TrueTapz on 2014/04/02 18:50
I can't stop using this app, I really love how it's so easy and so helpful at the same time. I use it for playing live and practice, I just wish it could show piano chords (it would be really cool) but overall I love it
Very nice
by Hoopingloop on 2012/08/23 20:56
I am a worship leader at a church and this is a great tool for creating song sheets and for practicing. The chord picker makes it really easy to insert chords. Also to add choruses and repeats or if you want to rearrange the song. Great job. Make a desktop version.
My music bible
by Lilburn Ga on 2016/03/11 14:41
I have used this app for years. It is my music bible. Love it! I use it in corporate, cruise ship, and national artist gigs. I refer to it often. I have about 600 songs and I don't know what I would do without my songbook.
Great app
by cherishedge18 on 2013/09/26 13:58
Been waiting for something like this for a long time. The one problem is that I can't line up the chords. If this problem could be fixed, that would be great!
Great app
by Belldesign on 2015/10/07 23:58
I am a percussionist/singer so I mostly use it for words. It has been easy to use and to transfer songs to other musicians iPads.
Great App
by dsty32 on 2015/12/12 10:09
Great app for songbook list sharing and adding new and old music. Best I seen and used. Improve it as your reviewers are suggesting and you'll pull more consumers! Aloha.
Awesome!
by Outacontrolbiker on 2012/08/09 23:37
Works as advertised!! A must for any musician who plays by chords. The only thing I suggest, is a place to jot notes for each song.
Good for chord charts for band
by Yabanada on 2017/03/09 18:28
Just what we needed to define the structure of our tunes. I can make charts when I encounter waiting periods during other activities.
Great!
by j,a,h on 2013/03/09 14:21
Very easy and efficient to use. Couldn't ask for anything better.
Could be a good app if....
by smartsboss on 2012/08/14 20:34
The app crash every time when I add a new tag... How many tags can I have ?... just 10 ?... no kidding me ! This is the worst issue about this app: You can't sync your files with your computer... you can make your text files in your computer and then upload to the app but you can't download from your app to a txt text file ! the app allow you to make a backup of your songs but just in a native format or in pdf...
