Very useful app!
I love this app and use it often for all of my different music, whether piano solos or orchestral trombone parts or small or large ensemble scores, and it keeps me from having to carry around large amounts of paper books with me wherever I go. I am able to keep an entire library of music with my at all times, and be able to whip it out on a whim, or perform hassle free. The only suggestion I would make would be to make the portion of the screen that you tap on to change the page larger. I will often be playing a very technical piece with no breaks for page turns, and so my hand will shoot up to the screen as fast as I can make it move but I will miss the button a lot of times because it is too small, and the page won’t turn which causes even more of a slowdown than if they were paper pages. If I could reach up and hit anywhere on the right half of the screen (or even right third) my page turns would go much smoother and I wouldn’t risk having to stop the song to try turning the page again. Overall though this app is incredible and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who will need to have music on them for any reason.
Hits the sweet spot between functional and really easy to use
Reliable and really easy to use, but with plenty of features. Some might need a few more bells and whistles if doing something complex, but this is perfect for me.
Marked it down a star because lately it has been draining my iPad battery in the background, when I'm not using either the iPad or Pia Score. Closing the app before putting away the iPad might fix this, but it's a new issue. I can get through a 4-hour gig with PiaScore open and the screen ON the entire time, so my issue is what happens when I'm not actively using the app or the iPad. I pick up the iPad expecting it to be fully charged and it reports that Pia used up 99% of the battery power.
Still a great app, if you remember to shut it down when you are done using it!
Convenient, but really glitchy
This app is great for me as a music major in college. Downloading sheet music online is my favorite feature by far, and I love being able to add tags to my sheet music to organize them. Plus it’s free, that’s always a plus. My biggest problem with this app is how unresponsive it can be.
It gets particularly glitchy when I’m doing score study. For example, doing a bunch of highlighting will make the undo and redo buttons respond super slowly. Consequently, it will also take a long time for the annotations on my sheet music to load, which gets frustrating after a while. Additionally, the app mistakes zooming out and scrolling gestures for writing A LOT, which leaves so many small, yet annoying, marks all over every document. The app also crashes sometimes, if it receives too much information from notating or finger gestures.
I also really don’t like that there are only four slots for annotating, two for pens and the other two for highlighters. It’s really inconvenient having to switch between colors and sizes so many times while I’m analyzing a score.
Again, great app, but issues like these make using it unenjoyable at times for me. Two features I would really love to see added, as well, would be a square grid that pops up when tilting the page to adjust it, and a feature that automatically zooms out when you exit the annotation mode, so you can see the full page right away.
Hope this review helps, and thank you for making this app :)
