ForScore App 50% off Currently! If you are a musician you need this app!

ForScoreIf you are a musician and you have an iPad then this app should be on your main screen and it should be one of the apps you use for all your digital sheet music!

Considering that ForScore is currently on 50% sale for $4.99 this is a no-brainer purchase if you do not for some reason have this app. (I have to admit that I am constantly surprised at the number of musicians who have an iPad but have not gone to digital sheet music!)

ForScore, UnRealBook and GigBook are the main competitors for the best app to use for music that you have scanned and turned into PDF’s.

Using these apps is the main reason I bought an iPad1 on the day it was released. There are many advantages to using an app made by musicians for musicians over a simple PDF reader app like PDF Expert or GoodReader. Here are a few….

  1. ALL of your sheet music can be carried and organized in your iPad!
  2. You can set hotspots for repeats, D.S.’s and D.C.’s.
  3. There is a built-in Metronome, recorder and pitch-pipe.
  4. It’s so easy to annotate the music using any color and size of pen you want.
  5. ForScore has a “Rearrange” feature that allows you to edit the pages in your PDF – change the order, delete, duplicate and even rotate pages with ease.
  6. You can even Crop out the extra white space on the page edges.
  7. ForScore has always worked in conjunction with DropBox and now also works with Google Drive, OneDrive, WebDAV, FTP and Box!
  8. Create Set-Lists to help you organize your music
  9. Easily edit the meta-data associated with your PDF’s to aid in organization – edit the Title, Composer, Genre, add Tags etc…
  10. You can also connect a song from you iTunes library to your PDF, allowing you to play the recording while you read along on the sheet music.
