How wonderful and convenient to have your hymnal on your iPad. This is a full featured complete SDA eHymnal with professionally typeset (not scanned) 4-part harmony music scores and lyrics that are ultra sharp and clear. Contains all of the 695 hymns from the Seventh-day Adventist Hymnal® plus many more from the "old" hymnal and other choruses. Also has all of the responsive readings. You can also add your own music sheets from Dropbox, your photo album, or directly from the camera. All of the hymns have synthesize piano and organ accompaniment with intro for congregational singing. As a bonus, many of the hymns have recorded piano and organ accompaniment (played by me). Use the accompaniment for congregational singing, or to meditate on during your personal devotions. No internet connection is needed to use this hymnal after installation.
The user interface has a clean look with no ads, and very easy to use. You can quickly and easily find the hymn that you want either by selecting from the alphabetical index of hymn titles and first lines, the numerical index of hymn numbers based on the Seventh-day Adventist Hymnal®, or your own bookmark list. There is a full featured bookmark list for you to add songs that you need for quick access. Use the search feature to quickly search for words in the title or first line, or just enter a hymn number to jump directly to that hymn. You can also swipe left or right to go to the next or previous song just like turning pages in the printed hymnal. But what is even better is that the swipe turning sequence can either be in numerical hymn number order, alphabetical hymn title order, or bookmark list order. Zoom in for larger notes and texts both in portrait or landscape orientations.
God has given me two talents-music and computer. I have been a church pianist and organist for several decades, and professionally, I am a computer professor. So putting these two talents together, I have personally written this app and recorded all of the hymns to be a blessing to others. I hope that you will like it and be blessed by it. I would love to hear from you to tell me how I can improve this app.
