Direct Searching

If you have a website configured in Settings » Import Settings » Internet Settings, OnSong provides an interface for searching for songs without leaving the app.

Make certain that you have agreed to the terms of use of any website where you acquire content and that you have sufficient license to use the content you are importing.


Type in keywords in the search field and tap on the Search button on the keyboard. This will locate songs using the Bing search engine.


Since songs on the Internet are usually of poor quality, you will want to preview the song prior to importing it into your library. Tap on the magnifying glass icon on the left side to open a preview of the song. This will help you decide if the chord chart will be useful.


To import a song from the search results, tap on the song to place a checkmark next to it and then tap on the Import button. The status of the import will appear in the upper right corner. Once completed, you will be returned to the All Songs screen with the newly imported songs.

Note: Songs found on the Internet are typically made available for personal or educational uses only. Be sure that you have the legal right to use the chord charts you are accessing and acquire any licenses you need for performance or recording.
