Ratings and Reviews
Audio no longer plays on my iPad Pro. I wrote to the developer....eventually it was sorted ;). Generally this is a pretty good app. I note a few comments from people saying they can’t access their downloads without WiFi. This isn’t the case. If you want a pdf version simply log your account on the sheer music website and your order history and pdf files are there waiting for you to download and print as you please.

We are sorry you've had problems with the sound. Here are our troubleshooting steps: If you are on an older iPad that *does* have a side switch along the right side, go into ‘Settings’ then ‘General’ and scroll down to where it says ‘Use Side Switch to:’ and set it to 'Lock'. (Even if the toggle button is set to Screen Lock instead of to Mute, changing the setting to Mute and then back again to Screen Lock should fix the problem.) If you are on a newer iPad that does *not* have a side switch along the right side, you'll instead be able to control sound via your Control Center. To access this, swipe up on your iPad with two fingers, and you will see a few icons including a speaker one which will be showing as muted. You will want to un-mute this. Thanks -Sam
Pros and cons
It's great for instant buying and access to fairly good sheet music (mostly basic playing/easy piano) but the HUGE downside is that you cannot save anything offline, or download for offline later, or print once you've bought. The only way you can access the music you've bought is by constantly being on WiFi. Sometimes, even if you're on WiFi and close the app and reopen it, you'll find that your library is lost and have to then sign out and sign back in to reload your library. Would love to use this for my professional gigs full time but it's a huge hassle every time I get to a gig and lose my library.
Some of the titles are extortionate
I have bought many pieces of music on here over the years, and have been happy with the price. Like the other day when I paid £3.99 for 7 pages. However, yesterday, I was very annoyed when I purchased a copy of “Love Changes Everything “ to find I was having to spend £4.99 for only TWO pages. I thought this was extortionate. If I’d realised it was only 2 pages long, I could have printed off the sample page, and worked out the rest myself. I will be very wary in future.

Thank you for your review! Apologies for this - our pricing is based on the arrangement type as opposed to the length of the piece/arrangement, but we can appreciate your frustration here! -Sam
