"DeepDish GigBook does what many other sheet music reader apps do, which is displaying and organizing your sheet music, but what sets GigBook apart are its features for performing musicians, and its sense of style." — Adam Ballif, AppAdvice

Ratings and Reviews
Great app! However, a year ago when I transferred the app to my new iPad a couple hundred of my scores/lead sheets which had songs from my iTunes attached to not transfer with the attached song. At first the score when opened would throw me out of the app. I could open the score to “details” and simply reconnect the song. I could then open the score. Lately, maybe since I upgraded to iOS 13.1.3, when I try to re-link the song, I get thrown out of the app. I can now only view scores that have the songs linked, or one which have never had a song linked. I hope DD GigBook will correct this issue. I have over 800 scores in the app and so many of them I am unable to view. When it’s working properly, then app is wonderful. I’ve been using it for at least 5 years, mostly for practice. I use the set list function during gigs. I highly recommend the app when it functions properly.
Could be so much better
The current version or two dies every so often, typically when I'm clicking on another song. It hasn't happened during a song, but it's still annoying. Fix that please.
There is no easy way to share directly to another gigbook user, unless you want to send an email or Dropbox. Not handy if there is no wifi. Also there is no ability to sync between GigBook on my other iPads. devices. I've a small one, too.
I tried some other apps, and settled on another app. I love the menu on DDGB, easy to navigate, where The other app is a train wreck of a menu, it has the ability to crop and remember, sync page turns and selections between two ipads, and more. With crop/remember and device sync, I might run DDGB again.
The app is broken again with no support
Like many of you, I’ve become reliant on some apps for my day to day work. Gigbook is one. It was a four star app. This app has always been how I access my sheet music and connect to corresponding audio. As of the last Couple of iOS updates, the app has a few big problems. The biggest, for me, is that it crashes if I try to connect an audio track to a sheet. The other problem is the worst: no support. No replies. No updates. Which is awful. This was the case for a while. The app was abandoned and then, thankfully, picked back up and cared for. This no longer seems to be the case.
DeepDish: if you still exist and are reading this; please do not abandon this app and please fix the big bugs.
Latest bugs as of 11/23 iOS update:
*Can no longer input time signature. GUI turns white.
*Can no longer connect songs to Apple Music tracks. Existing song connections require tapping play (which does nothing) then stop and then play again.
*Super bookmark is busted. When trying to super-bookmark a page from a collection, the selected page can vanish and the screen suddenly flips to the end of the book collection.
*When trying to add songs to collection from “recently added” the most recent song is hidden because the list hides the top song.
