Search URLs


With Perfect Guitar Song Book, you can easily starts web searches from the app's add song dialog.
Thus, you just have to set a URL, that contains placeholders for title and/or artist as start URL of the built-in web browser in the app's settings.

Example:

  www.google.com/search?q=%a+%t+chords

This starts a google search with the song's artist, title and the word "chords" (If you have entered artist and title in the add song screen before)


Placeholders:
%a     will be replaced with the artist
%t      will be replaced with the title



Examples for search URLs:
Just copy an URL from here and paste into the start URL field in PGSongBook's settings.
