Great app! It would be great to have the option of using the red psalter and switching between the blue and red psalters though.

Nice job with this. Great for personal use and private devotion. Only suggestion: add the option to adjust the TEMPO for the musical files. Some of them are far too fast which makes it difficult to sing. It also cuts out the reflective element of the singing, if you're just barely keeping up with the racing tempo of the music. Also there are just some songs that you might *want* to sing slower or faster.
SeanMcN's Review of Book Of Psalms For WorshipReviewed on 8/31/19 2:11 PM
What a wonderful resource! Having the music & lyrics helps be to better prepare for worship each week, and to keep my favorite psalms close. One suggestion: having recordings of each individual part (soprano, alto, etc) in addition to the complete music would help us all better prepare for worship -- especially those (many!) of us who don't read music well.
Pelegrin845's Review of Book Of Psalms For WorshipReviewed on 8/31/19 2:11 PM
I love having the Book of Psalms for Worship on my iPod Touch. I've been using the paper edition for a year, and was longing for a more portable way to have it with me. My goal is to memorize the Psalms and I can't think of a better way to do that than singing them! The app is solidly designed, and the quick access scrollbar is a critical feature to "dial up" the appropriate Psalm quickly. I also like that the tunes are available offline once you access them. Three things I would like to see for the Tunes tab, however: 1. As another reviewer said, it would be helpful if the tunes looped instead of just playing once. 2. I often need to transpose the tunes to my vocal range. Since they are midi files (I assume), it should be possible to put a transpose button on that page. 3. It would be nice to be able to change the tempo of the tunes too. The tunes are mostly very slow. It's a great pace for learning, but if your goal is to sing through the whole Psalter regularly, the tunes really need to be a little faster. Other than those items, though, I'm very happy with this app!

Great app for singing the Psalms or learning the words and/or tunes to C&C's new Psalms for Worship. How could this app not be a blessing? However, could be improved by allowing the tunes to be looped. Also, it would be nice to have for the iPad. Thanks C&C for all you do to help recover and promote Psalm singing. New version. The new version is awesome. I have it on both my IPad and iPhone. The app in the new version is slightly different for iPad and iPhone. First, on both platforms they have added the ability to mark favorites and to loop the tune. Personally, I like the ability to loop the tune when learning a new melody so it is possible to practice singing the psalm without having to constantly restarting the melody. On the iPad side, now when you select a psalm not only do you get the words but the complete music as it appears in the Psalter. Very clean and crisp graphics. Overall, a wonderful upgrade to an already excellent app.

Great app but this new update crashes upon opening on the iPod touch...hopefully a fix on the way.
DAR1984's Review of Book Of Psalms For WorshipReviewed on 8/31/19 2:11 PM
Thanks so much for all the work you e done! A few questions, not complaints. Is there a way to search by tune? And possibly break down the harmony to learn individual parts? Or at least see the music along with the words so I can attempt to read it. Love the idea, but the RP churches I worship with use the red psalter... Any chance of getting that on here?
An unnamed RP Pastor's Review of Book Of Psalms For WorshipReviewed on 8/31/19 2:11 PM
For Psalm Singin' Mamas: How many mothers with young children have difficulty holding a song book during worship? A song book in one hand and an infant in another is not always conducive to praising God! Now psalm singing moms have an opportunity to see the words on a hand held device that is much more manageable than the song book. For Family Worship: Have you ever wanted to bring your precentor home so that they could help you out in family worship? Now you have the tunes and the words right at the tip of your index finger. Stop making excuses that "I can't read music" and begin filling your house with praise to the King! For Ecclesiocrats: How many pastors and elders have to go to board meetings in Pittsburgh a number of times a year? You bring your clothes, your bible, your psalter, and a host of other things. Now you can leave your psalter at home and bring your iPod. You have it on the plane anyways so that you can listen to New Song (or Johnny Cash). This makes for one less thing to carry on board; and one less thing the feds have to dig through as they are playing big brother with your luggage. For Hikers and Bikers: Who doesn't love to meet with God in the wilderness the way that the prophets of old did? Now you can sing the psalms from the deep woods or the tops of mountains without getting your psalter all sweaty and dirty. How excellent to sing God's praises from the Book of Psalms... this will help. For Amillennials: What better opportunity to sing post-millennial songs than with an App of the Psalter? For Geneva College students: Nothing is cooler than an iPod Touch with the Book of Psalms for Worship App. Need I say more? For K State Students: Nothing is more evangelistic than an iPod Touch with the Book of Psalms for Worship App. Need I say more? For Purdue Students: Nothing is more hard-C.O.R.P.S. than an iPod Touch with the Book of Psalms for Worship App. Need I say more? For Apple Coveters: I needn't say a thing. You all ready have it. For All Christians: We are commanded to sing the Psalms in worship. Do you want to do what Jesus says? This App will help you to conform your life to the Word of God and aid in your glorifying and enjoying Him. That's worth 10 bucks, eh?

I love having this as a resource. If you could enable tempo (really, really slow right now) and pitch change it would be that much better. It would be beyond incredible if you could even select which vocal parts you want to hear. This would be great to be able to learn my part and/or practice with someone else.
LJ Hudd's Review of Book Of Psalms For WorshipReviewed on 8/31/19 2:11 PM
It took me a while to figure out how to see the sheet music (by turning the screen in its side), but this is an enjoyable app to use and is great for learning the tunes for the Psalms.
