    Noticed a singer using an iPad to display his lyrics. He could just click on a title and the words would come up. Does anyone know about an app for this or how I can build something to do it.

    Hello,

    Search "teleprompt" in the App Store. Several products are available and a few of them are free.

    Boomerk, I'm in the same boat, kinda. I have scanned in all the lyrics/tabs to PDF files on the iMac. Now to get them to my iPad so I can mount it to the mic stand and use it instead of a notebook full of songs. Any he would greatly appreciated!!!

    I've used an AP called 'onsong' for lyrics and chords. You can search the Internet right from the Ap. you can also edit if you don't care for all the chords or lyrics.

    I'll have to check out the apps above.

    Currently I write all my docs in Page and save as both Page and PDF on my Mac. Then I transfer the tunes (lyrics n chords) to my iPad and store them in iBooks. I guess it's not the best but it works. It would work a LOT better if I knew how to create folders within iBooks so I can sort the music into genre rather than searching one huge long list.

    To create folders in iBooks go to Collections and touch New. You can create as many folders as you require.

    I bought the app Onsong. I haven't had a chance to really get into it yet but it looks like it is going to do every thing I want and more. Thanks to everyone that replied to my post. Byron

    Touch EDIT in the Library view of iBooks. It's in the top right corner. You may have to wait for the word EDIT to appear, until it's finished thinking. Then briefly touch each title you want to move. A check mark will appear on each one. Then touch MOVE, and select the folder you want.

    What will your app have that OnSong doesn't already offer?

    I use OnSong anytime I'm on stage. It's a killer app with lots of features.

    There are a bunch of apps that can do this. OnSong is by far the most popular, arguably with the most features but also complex. There's also SongSheet, MySongbook, Chord Chart, etc. Each one has its strengths and weaknesses.

    I currently an app called "my lyric book". It lets you make playlists, keeps the songs in a library, and has options for page turning by pedal, one finger swipe, or 2 finger swipe. One of the main reasons I still use an ipad instead of my nexus 7.
