OnSong 2.0 is an exciting upgrade filled with new features.
Our goal is to get OnSong available to all of our current users for free.
Yes, that's right. Free.
However, we've realized something over the past few months as we work on the new version. It's different. Really different. Okay, maybe it's not apples and oranges different. It's still the best chord chart management app on the planet. But when we got really honest with ourselves, it's a completely new app and we humans don't take change too well. Given what we know about OnSong 1.96, one small change can have huge implications for musicians.
Herein lies our conundrum. We've been trapped by our own success. Hundreds of thousands of users around the world depend on OnSong everyday, or at least every week. It's the lifeblood of studio artists, on-stage performers and teachers in the classroom. For us to upgrade you to a completely new app would be like pulling the rug out from under you. We don't think that's right and we haven't found a way to avoid that. To be honest, we don't want to make promotional tissue boxes.
Today we are announcing that OnSong 2.0 will be made available as a brand new app. That means you will be able to run OnSong 1.96 for as long as you need in order to transition to the new version. OnSong 2.0 will be the same low price of $9.99 and have all the same great features, and then some, only different. It's going to have a brand new design to make it more powerful and yet, simpler to use.
Remember that promise of a free upgrade? Oh, it's still on. Here's where you come in. We need your help to make OnSong 2.0 the very best it can be. We will have a limited release of OnSong 2.0 to our biggest fans - our customers - for free. We will announce when it will become available. Over the course of a week, you'll be able to get OnSong 2.0 for the price of a breath of air. Kick the tires and take it for a test drive. Tell us everything we've done wrong. Tell us everything we've done right (we like that). All this while having the piece of mind that comes with OnSong 1.96. Our plan is to continue our free, limited release schedule until OnSong 2.0 is as awesome as we can make it. We appreciate each and every one of our customers who have helped us get OnSong where it is today.
