Just what I was looking for!

After reading some of the more recent reviews reporting that the annotation function was buggy, it was with some trepidation that I purchased the app. I needed a way to erase fingerings on classical guitar scores and put in my own choices. I noticed that there had been a recent update to the app to fix some bugs, so I decided to download it to my new iPad with Apple Pencil. In less than 15 minutes, I imported my pdf score, made a copy to be annotated (keeping an original clean copy), renamed my new file and then started to annotate my score. Because of review reports of annotations disappearing, I made just a few changes and then saved the file. I am new to using Apple Pencil, so a few erase streaks and extra lines showed up when I didn’t expect them. I found that if I left annotation mode before trying to scroll, things went a lot better.😉
Now the big challenge… could I get a hard copy printed? Yes! (I like to read from paper, not a screen)I saved and sent the file to my email and opened it on my computer with attached printer and produced my hard copy. (Yes I know about WiFi and Bluetooth tech, but I wanted to just get this done with the existing setup.)

Overall, I quickly figured out how to make this app function to do the job I needed to do without frustration or steep learning curve. Well done, Developer!

Seasoned user

I have never had a problem with my forScore. It works perfectly for my work as a church musician. I have over 1100 scores in my iPad Pro, and I used forScore before I had my iPad Pro. I’m not sure how many years I’ve had it, but probably eight at least and it’s a dream for someone that needs a lot of variety and things to come from other books. I used to carry many books with me to church every week to accommodate my music during the services. Having set list available, is beautiful. I love how the metronome automatically reads the next tempo, and just sets the metronome to it. How that happens I don’t know. I do have trouble with the turn because I can’t keep my face still. I tend to move a lot. When I play. It has been well worth the money I have spent on it, and I have told many other musicians that I know that are church musicians how wonderful this app is. I use it in performance every week. My only error is what happens not in the iPad or forScore. My biggest problem is making sure I locked screen before I start playing a set list. I’ve found so many different ways of getting music into forScore. I can use music scans. They go right into the set list. I use PDFs, I scan to the iPad from my. Printer that’s how I usually do it. It is the most valuable tool I have for church playing, except perhaps the ability to play by ear.

How amazing is page turning nowadays, wow!

Each time I use my lips to point left and right and the page just turns to reveal the next section of music, I get a wonderful satisfying feeling. One, that I was smart enough to part with my measly $10 per year to activate this feature. Two, that I live in a technologically advanced period of time where cameras on your sheet music display device have become smart enough to know when I need to see the next part of the score. Finally last but not the least, I get that satisfying feeling of not having to break my rhythm with a need to move my hands and fumble with my fingers in order to grab a uncooperative piece of music score. As a amateur pianist, I don’t often perform outdoors or in front of a fan that would blow away a normal piece of music. As a new forScore user, I have not converted even the smallest amount of my gigantic collection of paper scores to digital form. But from those that have been converted, I am sold on the idea that this is definitely the way to go! The only insignificant peculiarity that I’ve encountered, is that unlike the developer claims, it really is not possible to import into forScore any apple Pages documents containing scanned images of the score. The result is nearly unreadable and definitely unusable. First convert to PDF. Then, it works like a champ.
