I would love the ability to record songs with my troop, upload them and store them in this app, in a separate category. We could even choose to upload to the developer for submission. There are a ton more songs out there…keep adding to the app with midi on as many songs as possible!
What a great idea for an app! I will be sharing this with all of the Girl Scout leaders in our area. Impressed with the number of songs, ability to hear the tune on many, and it looks like the developers are open to improvement. Thanks for this app!
This is a collection of the words, not the tunes, of a few of the old camp favorites. If that is all you want, it's OK. What would be useful are the tunes (how does it go) and then obviously a lot more songs then this bare bones collection.
Very useful. If it were more complete I would share it with more people or even pay for it. Problem Is many songs are incomplete. It would be nice to have a place where you can add alternate versions or alternate versus. The midi files are extremely helpful. There should be a place where we could submit material. I was dissapointed to find the songs incomplete. Should be done wiki style. Also it would be helpful to have a personal favorite list to make it easier to find your most used songs.
I have 1 cub scout, 1 daisy scout and 1 brownie. As a family, we had fun singing songs. It was nice to have the words when I havent sung these songs in years or ever. Also we sat around the fire pit as a family. I used the app when trying to think of songs to sing. The whole family enjoyed it and it was a good way to teach them songs and to bring scouts home.
I really enjoy being able to pull up a song and actually know the words now, instead of pretending, you all have done it. Getting into scouting at 28 instead of 8 I didn't know any scout songs but I am learning them now. Only suggestion would be to try and find some OA songs, I've heard a few but don't know the names of them.
1. You need to have a section where the music used by multiple songs is printed once for people to get the melodies 2. You need a place where I can enter my own songs from other sources. Make sure it asks for me to give credit where I found it. Heck, I don't care if you take them sometime and add them if you want to sometime down the line. 3. You need to provide the chance to correct the errors in songs without rewriting he whole thing someplace.
This app sure came in handy at our District Pinewood Derby this past weekend. There were some technical problems with the track so we had down time to fill. I pulled up this app and found a song to teach the boys to fill it. Turned what could have been a bad experience into a fun memory for some Cub Scouts. Thank you again.
Great app, Very helpful in reminding us of all the words to our favorite songs. I would love to see more added and perhaps a sample of the music tune, I do not know them all which makes it difficult. My only real complaint is that every time I try to go back to the song lists the app closes and I have to reopen and start again. Fairly annoying but overall a great app.
My only issue is that there seems to be more Girl Scout related songs than Boy Scout songs. As a song leader, I understand that there needs to be a good mix in order to reach your audience. While there is a good mix here, it seems to be geared more one way than the other.
Lots of songs included. Very easy to find the song you are looking for, in any light level. Songs are categorized (repeat after me, singalong, etc.) to make searching easy. It's ad supported, so you can't beat the price tag. Thanks! UPDATE: Now includes "Sung to the tune of"! Thanks!
I'm an old time guitar player and stumbled on this app by accident. It's really a time saver in looking up lyrics and some have music to boot. If I had one suggestion, it would be to include the chords above the lyrics. Other then that keep up the great work and keep bringing on more songs. Guitar Player Ron
This is an excellent app! Now when the occasional question comes up of "how does that song go?" it will be easy to find out. Plus, there are a lot of songs that I haven't heard since I was a kid! Brings back some good camp memories!
I really like this app! You could use it at the campfire and not even need a flashlight to read the songs. Also environmentally conscious since you dont have to print song pages. Good for a song anywhere. Thx!
Never having grown up as a singing Scout, it would be really helpful to have more tunes. But, that being said, the app is very helpful and great for quick lookups when I should have planned a little better at those Cub Scout events!
I found this app disappointing mainly because very few of the songs actually have music to play along. Most of the songs only print the lyrics. Good if you just need a reminder of the words to songs you already know, but not good if you want to learn new songs.
Great selection of songs. I am looking forward to using this with both my cubs and Girl Scouts. However, black background with white print is very hard on the eyes. It gives me a headache. Please change this!
As a relatively new leader, I don't know a lot of songs & such. I was hoping for an app with the tunes as well. (Or at least "to the tune of".) Otherwise, this is full of songs - a great resource provided you know the tune.
