SeeScore is a new type of music score display intended for musicians to practice or perform instrumental or vocal music from the iPad instead of using conventional paper scores. Unlike existing score display apps using fixed layout formats such as pdf, SeeScore uses the power of MusicXML to allow interactive flexible layout, and get the best use of the limited screen size. You supply your own scores in MusicXML format which can be found on many web sites, or can be output direct from most score-writing packages, and are transferred into SeeScore through iTunes. SeeScore Lite is a demonstrator for SeeScore which has many other features, most of which can only be tried on the sample score provided.
Note that SeeScore Lite no longer allows upgrade. You must download SeeScore from the App Store when you want to upgrade.
Compatibility with iOS 11
Ratings and Reviews
Limit on # of imported pieces
The description here fails to note that you may only import three MusicXML files at a time (which is only the main selling point of this app). For $5 this is something that should be disclosed. It's shady at best and false advertising at worst. It's a shame because the app itself seems very useful. I can do without the more advanced features, which is why I was content with the Lite version. This, however, is a demo at best, and absolutely not worth $5.
free demo ... liked product
My time was well spent evaluating this free demo. I liked the features and reflow of MusicXML.
I found this developer is responsive and proactive. I found an issue importing MusicXML created by Harmony Assistant on the desktop and reported my findings to Dolphin Computing. The issue turned out to be a non-standard compliant line in Harmony Assistant. So, this developer did two things: (1) improved SeeScore import to be more robust, and (2) reached out and worked with Harmony Assistant developers to help get Harmony Assistant fixed as well.
I ended up purchasing the full SeeScore app. I'm happy with the subsequent purchase.
If only, if only
The demo app is useless. Nothing works at all and there is just one inadequate sample song. If only it would disable just the import/export so we can at least see what the app can do. Looks like it has potential tho if only it could point you Music XML file libraries. Looks like a great car but with no gas.
