Import song file
Found under: Settings > Song actions > Add songs > File
Within OpenSongApp you can import various files from your device to be used as songs. OpenSong formatted xml files are best (with the ost file extension, or no file extension), but the app will also allow you to import the following files as songs:
PDF documents (.pdf): Only available for Android 5+ (will not work on KitKat).
Image files (.jpg, .gif, .png, etc.)
Chordpro songs (.chordpro, .cho, etc.): These will be converted to OpenSong format on import
iOS / OnSong files (.onsong): These will be converted to OpenSong format on import
Text files (.txt): These will be converted to OpenSong format on import
From the settings menu, select Song actions > Add songs > File. You will then be presented with the file picker and you should navigate to the desired song file.
Once you click on the file, the app will show you a preview of the contents if it is able to read it and allow you to enter a filename and select a folder for the new song.
Chordpro, iOS/OnSong and text files will show the OpenSong converted content.
Once you click on save, you will be shown the song and have the option to edit it further.
PDF and image files will also allow you to use OCR (optical character recognition) to automatically attempt to extract song text from the file and save it as an OpenSong formatted file instead.
