Ratings and Reviews
I only have this app for two days. So far, it is very easy to upload my scores that are already in PDF format. Easy to organize my scores, and very easy to make annotations. I am very glad I have chosen this app. I thought I had to configure my AirTurn Ped Pro2 to work with it. It turns out as soon as the app is opened the Ped Pro 2 can turn pages. It cannot be more simple than that. I will try additional features in coming days. For now I only have a simple need and this app does everything I want. Thank you.
I am a music educator and love having all of my scores in one easy location. This app has everything I need; easy uploads, piano, buttons for repeats, annotations, MP3 storage in app, to name a few.
New update is frustrating! - Problem Fix
UPDATE Problem Fixed. Thank you to the developers for your help!
Just updated to the latest version yesterday and all the annotation options changed size. I can no longer reproduce the same real pencil like markings in my score with my Apple Pencil.
Developer Response ,
Hi, thanks for your feedback. This can be adjusted by changing the "variable width" option in forScore's settings panel (it defaults to Medium but you can set it to Low or Off to reduce the effect). If you haven't done so already, please update to 11.0.1—we made some changes to this, in particular reducing tilt sensitivity that was skewing the average size of drawings and should make things look a lot more like you're used to. If you have any questions, you can contact us directly by choosing Support from forScore's tools menu. Otherwise, please consider updating your review to better reflect your overall experience using it. Thanks!
