|Available In: App Store||Price: $0.99|
As my full time job I’m a Technology Manager for a church. When I saw this app I just had to write about it. I’ve been waiting to ask for a demo copy so I can do a review but I noticed that the app is on sale for $0.99 down from $5.99. The sale only goes until December 31st, 2009.
The app is a database of worship songs categorized by theme, key and tempo. The need for this app comes from the developer’s own experience. They were not iPhone app developers but needed an app that would suggest songs based on the message that was being preached. Sometimes at the end of a message, it’s good to be flexible to what the speaker is highlighting in their message. After networking with others, they released the app in the beginning of December.
Since I don’t have a copy yet, I don’t know how well it functions but I can tell you some features and show you screenshots. The is a 3 part wheel that lets you select from the themes, keys and tempo. Then, once filtered, you can sort through the remaining songs alphabetically. You can even search easily for videos on YouTube or songs on iTunes and lyrics and chords on Google. Next, you can see the entire database of around 600 songs but tapping the “All Songs” tab. Saving your favorites is easy too and can be accessed from the “My Binder” tab. Finally you can share your choices from the “Share” tab. I haven’t seen any screenshots and can’t find any info on how that works but again, as soon as I get the app I’ll post an update.
