Bugs - please fix

Great app but so many bugs it's difficult not to go back to a paper score and stick with it.
1. Sound disappears until the tuning fork is tapped then untapped, then you lose your place and have to start again.
2. When score is expanded to read a note then pinched back, however carefully, the screen disappears.
3. Cannot choose just the base or just the treble clef (to practise left or right hand).
Please fix this could be such a good bit of kit.

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.

App is good but buy the music on the web

I enjoyed this app and was happy until a piece of music went in to error on download, it took an angry e-mail to resolve but it was sorted satisfactorily, the upshot is its better to buy direct from the web site not through the app. Overall a good app but beware your music is saved in the cloud not on your tablet.
