Thanks, I've got it on 2 devices now but am just going to use Dropbox to manage it online rather than buying that license. It worked for the first song I added! Anyway I'm glad this thread got started cuz I've been wanting to get everything organized. Should be a great tool.

It still uses Dropbox to sync. The pc license only allows you to run the Songbook software on a pc which I think is better for typing a lot of tekst and if you need to do a lot of formatting.

I find it very handy. I jam with some friends every Thursday evening. It so easy to search for new songs with the app
and add them. We use to download them then print out a copy for everyone. Then edit using a pen.
If you search using Chordie there is a icon in the upper right to change song to Chord Pro format.
Makes it easy to edit in Songbook.
Another feature I really like is Tag. I can go the Thursday Jam section and all the songs we're working on are right
there, no need to scroll through the menu looking for a few songs.

I do all that on my pc using notepad in windows once you know the codes it's really easy. All the codes are in the drop down
window in the edit section of Songbook.
Save the file as a .txt file then send it to my tablet.

That’s a way to do it. I like having the interface on the laptop.

I am curious to hear what type/size tablet people use for these programs? I experimented using an iPad mini and I had continual problems with the music not scrolling fast enough, or scrolling too fast. I tried to adjust the scrolling rate, but it was a pain in the butt to get it right every song. I assume that with a larger tablet like a 10’ish inch iPad or the 12’ish inch iPad Pro that this would be less of a problem because there is more real estate to work with. What do people use?

Thanks for the replies Joerfe and Stitch101. I tried Songbook on my wife’s 9.7 inch iPad and the scrolling was much less of a problem. I only tried 4 songs, but they were all pretty good ‘as is’, downloaded from the web,  without needing to edit them. I think the 10.5 inch iPad Pro should work nicely. But, I am going to wait until September to see if a rumored 11 inch iPad Pro will be released. The 12’ish inch iPad would be great, but it is huuuuuuuge and I can’t see myself using it for non-music applications. Thanks again for your help.
