Sooo, was I the only one waiting for iOS 6 and, at the same time, expecting the finally see lyrics in Music app?

I am really starting to regret getting my ipad in the first place, I said it in another post few minutes ago. No lyrics, no YouTube app, no Flash Player... I use my ipad for YT and Music. One of those is gone; the other *****...


Congrats Apple! .!.

iPad 2, iOS 6

    haha me too

    but yeah it doesn't have the lyrics it annoys me a little

    but i think you can put the lyrics on notes

  • Madison @ SecretLab Level 1 Level 1

    Apple, I was SO hoping you would bring lyrics back to the iPad with iOS 6. I miss the good old iOS 4 days when they were there: please release an update WITH lyrics in the near future. This is unacceptable.

    Like on Notes app? Yeah right, I vould have got an Android **** for that...

    I really liked lyrics on iPad (and I still do on iPhone, all my songs have lyrics) and this frustrates me...

    As for YT (I know it's off topic but still) - HUGE DISSAPOINTMENT! Big step backwards if u ask me...


    Omg, I really hope a miracle happens and lyrics come back to music app for iPad... :(

    You are not alone, I've complained to apple about the lack of functionality on the iPad.


    Simple things like loss of lyrics, music video playlists (so one will play after another), voice control on the music player, no clock!!! just make the the iPad seem like a downgrade from even the 3rd gen iPod touch. The is no excuse for stripping out these functions.


    I'm growing to despise Apple for their lack of consideration and not listening.


    Another HUGELY DISSAPPOINTING iOS release for iPad.

    This goes out to all the people who bashed me for being critical about losing a feature in iOS5 THAT WE HAD in iOS4 - [fill in the blank] you! We have a valid reason to be upset that functionality was arbitrarily removed.


    Now comes along iOS6 and still no lyrics on the iPad2?


    This is the reason why "walled gardens" are bad.

  • Johnathan Burger Level 6 Level 6

    Why is that?

    You can use sound hound to view lyrics or search the App Store for lyrics and use one of those.

  • Jonathan Gibson Level 1 Level 1

    JB; because all those apps require an internet connection and are unreliable. Everyone of my MP3s has lyrics already embedded in the Tags, just wanting to be accessed; iPod and iPhone can do it, but the best device for viewing lyrics, the iPad, can't!

    Apple knows best what we need...

  • Jose_Pena Level 1 Level 1

    Yeah from the point of view of a customer Apple should consider seriously the customer input for their products the Lyrics funcionality, Maps, and I do not know, honestly what else, these loss, indeed, have been claimed by need and they still continue releasing updates, or upgrades, without a feature that used to work in previous versions!

    Marketing should know about it.... where are you guys??? Thanks!

    Found an app "photon" that will let you watch flash on ipad

  • McGIO Level 1 Level 1

    How you see then in the iPhone? I always wanted to have this and never see them directly in the iPod or now music App?

    I have used Soundhound and musiXmatch and both require the web connection and they are not what I am expecting.

    Having each song with its lyrics should be part of the meta-data we obtain when buying them from iTunes or Amazon.

    Why something this simple is not there? Even we need to save the lyrics into iTunes, why if the song has its lyrics it doesn't show up in iOS?

    I see in the iPhone iOS 6.01 settings for Muscic a Lyrics &amp; Podcast Info toggle switch and it does nothing for the lyrics?

  • Jonathan Gibson Level 1 Level 1

    Gracenote has all the lyrics available, but Apple has chosen not to make them available automatically (?!!) so you have to enter them yourself.


    1) Make sure you have lyrics for your songs. To check: in iTunes Right Click on a song >Get Info >click the Lyrics tab (if you have no lyrics you could just type them in here or get them automatically for your whole library using something like Lyricsfetcher

    2) Make sure Lyrics are enabled on your iPhone/iPod: Settings >Music >Lyrics & Podcast Info - On.

    3) Sync your iPhone/iPod

    4) Choose a song that definitely has Lyrics metadata,

    5) Tap once, anywhere on the album artwork, and the lyrics will appear with the scrubber bar.

    Guys, I have no experience on communicating with apple. Is there any chance apple replies to our complaints so that we get an idea on what to expect for the future about viewing lyrics on ipad?
