No, at this time you cannot repeat previous sections or change the arrangements of the songs. Although, we are much cheaper to get going than Fly Worship, and do not require any complicated computer setup. We offer our software for free, and songs are between $5-$10 each.
Though, the ability to customize a song's arrangement is on our radar. There are a lot of requests for updates at this point, and we're prioritizing them.
Download it and give it a try! There's also a free sample song for you to test it out with.
I've had a try - it looks good. It is certainly a cheaper setup cost than Fly Worship but more similar to iSingWorship. Good selection of tracks to choose from. For the solo musician it is a good solution, though I do like the natural fades between sections that iSingWorship provides.
Is there a plan to include lyrics or chord sheets, or is it intended as purely backing tracks?
Currently we offer charts from our website.
We do plan to implement those into the app soon. That's a priority for us.
I might have missed this - what does the song licensing cover?
We do a lot of original and non-mainstream material (some from Israel).
Can we do our own songs from scratch?
No, there is no recording ability in the app. There are already apps for this (Garageband being the main one) that do a really good job. Therefore, we didn't see the need to re-invent the wheel.
That's a good point. If you're doing original material, this app isn't remotely what you're after. There are some really good ones out there.
But one thing I would like to see is the ability record one or two tracks along with the purchased music to give it your own sound - for instance, do your own bass part and then play guitar on Sunday with it. But I'm guessing there must be a licensing issue involved with that?
