OnSong Manual

User Interface

OnSong is designed to let you focus on what's important, your music. On a tablet device like the iPad, your music appears first. On handheld devices like the iPhone, the first screen to appear is the Songs Menu. On smaller devices like the iPhone or iPod touch, you'll need to select a song before accessing the main interface due to limited screen real estate.

The OnSong interface is divided into these main areas:

Status Bar

The status bar is provided by the operating system and provides information such as the current time, networking, and battery status.

The menubar contains access to all the functions for managing your library and the songs you are viewing.

Song Viewer

Most of the main interface displays the currently active song. There are special regions that overlay the song viewer which provide tools you can use while performing.

Live Bar

In the lower right portion of the screen is the live bar which contains large buttons that can be activated during a live performance. These include autoscrolling, starting and stopping a backing track, starting or stopping the metronome, and toggling ad-hoc networking mode.

Registration Screen

When you open OnSong, the Registration or Getting Started screen is displayed. You can prevent this window from opening in the getting started screen once you have the information you need to make the most out of OnSong. The registration screen does not open if a menu or other modal dialog is currently open.

You may also be prompted to opt into push notifications. OnSong intends to use push notifications to notify our users of an emergency or to pass along time-sensitive information.
