SongSheet update – Ghostdust’s popular song cataloguing app moves to v.3.0

Download from iTunes App Storesongsheet pro logo 2There are lots of ways of keeping track of your song charts whether those are all the covers you play in your gigging band or your own songs. However, if you want a convenient, and gig-friendly, digital format, then the is an app for that; SongSheet. I’ve reviewed SongSheet by developer Ghostdust previously on the blog so if you have not checked out the app  then do take a read. SongSheet is, however, more than just a cataloging app; it is also a very useful notepad system for songwriters as a way of keeping your song ideas together and backed up.

Songsheet – a great tool for cataloguing all your song charts with plenty of options for editing and live performance.

Developer Gabriel Hauber does like to keep things moving though and the updates have kept coming on a very regular basis, both refining the performance of the app and adding to the feature list. The latest of these sees the arrival of v.3.0 on the App Store today and, as befits the whole number change, it is a fairly substantial update.

As well as a number of fixes, and a move to iOS9.0 as the minimum OS support, this version adds a long list of new features. The highlight of these is a new song editor and song layout engine. This adds undo/redo options, options to format lines as comments, more options for displaying chords in song view or on an external display, additional meta-data fields for composer, lyricist and arranger labels, new options for selecting and deleting chords, further song import options for songs in other formats and some additional song exporting features.

Songsheet supports external MIDI control for scrolling when used live…..

Whatever cataloging system you use for your songs, getting everything into a system is initially a lot of work. If you are prepared to knuckle down and get that phase dealt with (and SongSheet Pro does make that as easy as it can), then the long term benefits are obvious. SongSheet has become a very well featured cataloging application and is also a great option for songwriters. And, at UK£14.99/US$14.99 for the iPad version, it is a pretty modestly priced for what is such a useful and versatile tool.
