User Manual

Browse Files

Once you've selected a source from the source list, you are presented with files and folders. Tap on folders to navigate to more files.


Tap on the search bar at the top of the list to search the visible files and folders by name. Start typing to view results that start with the search query, or tap on the "Search" button on your keyboard to find files and folders that contain the search term.


Tap on files to check and uncheck them for import. You can also use the Select All and Deselect All buttons on the bottom of the screen to select or deselect everything in the currently viewed folder. If you select a backup file, OnSong will prompt you that importing a backup will overwrite your current library before continuing. If confirmed, only the backup file is imported and the library is restored.

Deleting Files and Folders

You can swipe right to left over each row to reveal a Delete button. Tapping on the button will delete the file or folder.

Folders cannot be deleted from S3 sources due to the flattened file hierarchy present in the Amazon S3 storage.

Sorting Files

You can tap on the icon in the lower left to list ways that files and folders can be sorted in the list. You can sort with the following options:

  • Name sorts files and folders alphabetically.
  • Size sorts larger files to the top of the list.
  • Created sorts the most recently created files to the top of the list.
  • Modified sorts the last modified files to the top of the list.

Tapping the currently selected sorting option will reverse the sort order.

Creating Folders

You can create a new folder in the source by tapping on the + button in the lower right corner.


Once you have some files checked, tap on the Import button in the upper right corner to begin the import process. If you have selected to import a file that was already imported, OnSong will have you choose an action to take on the duplicate file. When importing begins, the progress is displayed as a percentage in the upper right corner. Once the import process is completed, you are returned to the All Songs screen.
