    Hi everyone,

    I am a musician and have an extensive songbook filled with over 100 song lyrics. I would love to be able to make a PDF with a table of contents and have the ability to tap on an artist or song, and have it go directly to that particular lyric page. For example,

    Billy Joel:
    -She's Always A Woman (tap on song and take me directly to lyric)

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Best thing I can suggest is the Forscore app. I use it for sheet music on gigs and it's pretty good. You can make setlists with quick song switching too. It's not perfect, as it can be a bit slow to scroll through a list of 1300 jazz tunes but it's your best bet.

    Apple is strict about letting developers touch the ipod app on their devices.

    Your best bet is to get a 3rd party program like iArt and let it fill all your songs with lyrics automatically.
    Now when you tap on your song, lyrics will be displayed, like you want.
