Help! Hymn number 663 is the wrong song!
I tried to buy the hymn package, but it didn't download.
I reinstalled, but I only got the 200 free hymns.
These issues can easily be addressed by reinstalling the app. Here's how:
  1. Delete the app from your iPad by pressing and holding the icon to make it wiggle, then press the x with a circle around it to delete.
  2. Then, launch the App Store from your home screen, and re-download the hymnal app. If you tap the "Purchased" icon at the bottom of the page, it should show you a little cloud icon that tells you you can redownload the application.
  3. From within the app, click on a greyed-out hymn and "re-purchase" the hymns. You will get a prompt letting you know that you've already made this purchase, and that you can redownload the hymns for free. This should download the whole hymns package for you.
