This is why I want an iPad!

Well, one of the reasons, anyway.

Check out these screenshots from a new app called OnSong:

If this app is anywhere near what the screenshots and write-up make it look like, then I could see this being an absolutely fantastic tool, especially at camp when I'm flipping through chord charts for songs around the campfire. All my songs in one place -- no more loose sheets of paper that get lost, torn or trampled on. The ability to dynamically transpose chords, look up chord fingerings, the fact that it's a backlit LCD screen instead of a paper and a flashlight...

I was totally "meh" about the iPad until I realized that apps like this were possible. Now I'm very excited to see one for myself when they're released in Canada next month.

  1. I have to admit, the iPad looks pretty slick. I'd probably get one if I used a computer occasionally when I'm out and about. I like the big screen and some of the apps look great. If I spent much time hanging around airports and other places where I don't get dirty, it'd be great. Maybe some day when I can afford stuff made by Apple.
