Version 1.7 Coming Soon

I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday season! Things have been quite busy here at OnSong as you can imagine.  November was a rough month as I moved to support iOS 4.2 including features like multitasking and printing.  Because of some mistakes I made, and some delays on Apple's launch of iOS 4.2, I had to remove the app from the app store for a time.  But after a few days, we were back up and running with OnSong 1.6.  Thank you to everyone for your patience as I got things worked out.

OnSong 1.6 had to launch without sufficient testing so I'm working hard at wrapping up version 1.7 as soon as possible.  It has just gone to my beta team who are dedicated, hard working musicians from all walks of life.  I'm confident they will put this version through it's paces.  I believe together we will create something amazing to continue to help musicians everywhere go paperless and get organized!

I can tell you that OnSong if going to be under active development for a while!  So far I have 200+ feature requests just waiting to make their way into the next version.  I'm trying to make some more time for OnSong in my busy schedule so that I can continue to break new ground in this arena.  I'm happy to report the following features coming in version 1.7!

  • Universal app for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch
  • More robust Dropbox and MobileMe support
  • Support for the AirTurn BT-105 pedal
  • Updates to fix scrolling and multitasking issues
  • Better chord and lyrics rendering
  • Custom flow control of songs (V1 C V2 C C, etc)
  • Built-in database management tools
  • Improved importing of songs
So stay tuned for more!

Since this is going to be a universal binary, I will probably make it available for free for a time, allowing you to upgrade to the universal version from the standard iPad and iPhone versions.  I'm hoping to make this consolidation as seamless as possible for everyone since I'd love for you to be able to use it on any device.  Drop me a line if you have any ideas of how you'd like that to happen!
