What’s New

Version 5.0.2

What’s New in Newzik 5.0:
- A brand-new design: over the past few months, we undertook a massive redesign of our user interface, aiming at clarifying some concepts and making the whole workflow easier. We hope you will like it!

It does what it’s supposed to do...........but......

Lately it’s gotten a bit “buggy”. It doesn’t let me send emails directly from the app. Don’t know if it’s a problem with iOS or with the latest update from iOS or from Newzik.

The Newzik team is working on it but have yet to get me a fix for the issue. I can work around it by sending the files using the cut and paste format in PDF conversion but I cannot even send Newzik an e-mail directly from the app.

It’s going on five days now and no fix yet. Just sent an email to Newzik via Yahoo asking if I have to pay for a complete deletion and re-installation but it’s 8:30PM in France right now so no one in the office.

My go to music reader

I’ve been using Newzik for a couple of years now and there is plenty to like. As a tuba player, this allows me to find music quickly. It never blows off the stand, and I always have enough light. I did have pay for the upgrade to 5.0 when I thought it would be free for existing users. But, I don’t really mind supporting the folks that provide such fine support to a product I use almost daily.

There are two features that I would like to see: 1) white notes on black background. This would help greatly when the scene calls for blackout.
2) the ability use the iPad’s camera to snap an image of a piece of music on paper and bring it directly into the library without going through one or two independent apps to change the image to a pdf.

Hi Tubastew, and thank you for your comment and your trust.

The two features you're asking for are planned for development in the coming months, we hope you will like them! In the meantime, you can already use the color inversion available in the accessibility features of iOS to get this "white notes on black background" effect if you need to.

Regarding your upgrade to version 5, we put all our previous users' accounts as premium in our database, so you shouldn't have had to pay... Sorry for this! Don't hesitate to contact us directly at

Fantastic! Better than I could have hoped.

This does everything I wanted it to do and more. I love having the ability to put multiple different parts along with different variations of recordings together in one entry and switch between them on the fly. Works great with a page turner. Despite the “Composer/Piece” terminology I’m using this with rock and pop music too, and works great there as well. I’m planning to replace a handful of different apps with just this one, once I finish loading up all my music.
