Excellent app! Reported a bug with PDF imports on a previous version and the developer responded immediately. Latest version has corrected the buggy behavior. Rating goes up from 4 to 5 stars. This is exactly what I need.

This app is one of the reasons I got a tablet... And so far very pleased with the possibilities, but I have a long way to go: lots of my own songs to get onto it aswell as standards and classical. One thing that would make it even better, would be options for dealing with multi page songs better: I would suggest the ability to display 2 pages in landscape mode, plus smooth scrolling between pages (take a look at the way OliveTree bible study does this for a good example. Anyway...I'm getting ahead of myself. I am mainly really grateful this app exists and is very reasonably priced unlike some others that seem less stable etc. So thanks to the developer.
