Re: How to replace a songbook with an iPad, need to auto-scroll..
This is the question that popped immediately into my head when I read the first post. I've been blessed (cursed?) with a freak memory for song lyrics, so much so that my fellow musicians sometimes act like I know every song -- which I surely don't.

I guess replacing that with an iBook would make for a somewhat "cleaner" onstage look, but it doesn't seem like a substitute for learning the songs so that they can be performed without prompting.
Don't want to sound snobbish, but perhaps discarding this "musical crutch," might be better than searching for the ideal app to continue using it...?
