Ratings and Reviews
Look no further
MobileSheets for iPad has been at the top of my “music tech” wish list for seven years. What a great Christmas present! OnSong, forScore, and several others are solid sheet music apps, but MobileSheets is far and away the best thing out there. Not only is it the most feature-rich app, it’s the most cross-platform app. Mike has consistently been one of the most responsive and helpful devs I’ve ever dealt with. The price is outrageously reasonable. Look no further, MobileSheets is the music display app you need!
YAY! It’s now on iPad too!!!
I have been using this app extensively on windows PC and I am thrilled to find it now in the iOS App Store, which is why I just purchased a brand new iPad. Now I have the best of both worlds. Thank you, Mr. Zuber!
Much better library organization than forScore
I’ve used forScore for years and loved the clean look but hated the library organization. If you have more than a few books or pieces of music in your library, forScore just doesn’t cut it. MobileSheets is organized much better and has a library management that is extremely versatile.
Most musicians have the usual mix of files:
- book/collection containing multiple songs saved as a single pdf
- book/collection of multiple songs saved across multiple pdf files
- multiple books/collections saved in a single pdf file
MobileSheets is capable of handling all of these situations by letting you create virtual books pieced together from one or more page ranges from one or more pdf files, all organized neatly allowing you to quickly find any book or song. The original pdf files stay untouched, but the “virtual” songs can be added independently to whatever books, collections, setlists, etc you want within the app. Sure you can kind of do this with forScore by creating bookmarks or setlists, but with forScore the pdf titles and the bookmarks all get jumbled together and the collections of multiple pdf files get displayed differently than collections within a single pdf file, and it becomes difficult to find the music you are looking for.
And with MobileSheets, you can use a spreadsheet to import page ranges to break up a pdf containing a bunch of songs into individual songs, which makes generating your library quick and easy. In the spreadsheet you can specify any or all of the fields for each song: book, collection, setlist, genre, composer, etc. plus a few custom fields you can change to whatever you want.
Other benefits of MobileSheets over forScore:
- Books and songs can be sorted by name, date, index, or manually, uniquely for each book. (in ForScore tags/labels (which can be renamed “books” or “collections”) and the songs that are associated with a particular tag/label are always displayed either alphabetically or by date, so to display the contents of a book in the right order you have to prepend a number to the title of each bookmark)
- The composer field (and all other fields) can contain commas (in forScore, “Bach, J.S.” Gets separated into two composers “Bach” and “J.S.”)
- Full titles are actually visible in the library! (in forScore, long titles get cut off)
- Library font is consistent making it much easier to visually scan through a list of songs/books/collections! (in forScore, the font size varies from line to line depending on how long the titles are, so the text doesn’t line up from one line to the next)
- Bookmarks can actually be used as bookmarks, and setlists can be used as setlists, since they aren’t tied up as table of contents management as in forScore.
- There is a MobileSheets app for Windows and also Android tablet, and you can sync your library and settings between different devices.
The only feature where MobileSheets falls short is the lack of tabs allowing you have multiple songs open at the same time and quickly switch between them without losing your place. That is the one feature in forScore that makes it very convenient for a weekly practice routine consisting of several pieces/etudes/scales/etc, or when comparing different renditions of the same piece.
