Really very good;

I’m a bassoon player; I finally can play with any instrument in my ensemble. Also for studying my own part, it’s just great. I also want to mention the support; initially I had some issues, but got immediate replies and the issue was resolved. I live playing with this App and my bassoon Thanks. Erik

Thanks for the review!

Incredible app

I love the app for studying, could you please add the recognition of the "breve" (full measure note) soon, need it for old music so often,
Thanx a million

Developer Response ,

Breve is on the todo list. Glad you like PlayScore 2.

Het programma maakt heel veel fouten, waardoor het zo goed als onbruikbaar is.

Developer Response ,

Results depend entirely on image quality. You need a clear sharp image. Screenshots or photos of other screens won’t give good results. PlayScore doesn’t support handwritten music or novelty fonts intended to look handwritten. Thanks
