iGigBook Sheet Music Manager
By Black & White Software LLC
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
iGigBook manages all of your PDF sheet music resources; real books, fake books, chord charts that transpose, single sheets of music and full blown scores. All of your music at your fingertips, in real time, on any gig.
Designed by gigging musicians for gigging musicians, iGigBook features a powerful search engine that lets you instantly find the one song that you need among the thousands contained in your sheet music collection. Show up to any gig, confident, that when the tune is called, you'll have it up and ready while others are still flipping through pages.
iGigBook works like the powerful search engines that you've used for finding stuff on the web. Start typing in the name of a song and search results from over 70 books appear so that you can choose the best arrangement that you have available. Only iGigBook can allow you to find, in seconds, all versions of "Autumn Leaves" or all of the songs by Antonio Carlos Jobim.
Now is the perfect time to get your hands on the perfect jam session tool and the only app that allows you to find in seconds that needle in a haystack tune buried deep inside your vast sheet music collection.

• iPad Pro ready, view 2 pages side by side in landscape mode.
• Over 70 fake and real book indexes makes searching a breeze.

Every musician's best friend!
What you get with this app is solid, user friendly app to manage all your jazz, blues and even classical and pop music charts, including sheet music. I've tried and purchased other apps and this app is my all-time favorite and main app. You get most of the realbooks of jazz standards and you can update your library with your personal collection. I used to carry 2 or 3 realbooks to gigs. That's passé!
Now, I can import my own pdfs. I can also transpose popular jazz standards, and with newer updates, I can practice my favorite chops with iTunes play along from within the app. The latest update was genius!!!
Above all, this app was created by a fellow musician for other musicians. Unlike other apps published by giant corporations, Phil Smith takes the time to send relevant emails regarding updates without all the ads and enticement to pay for useless add-on. And he's always taking suggestions to improve the app. Download this app and show your love!

I stand by my original review from several years ago, the app keeps getting better and I have used this on all my gigs since installing it, it is indispensable and just keeps getting better!
OK, after many hours of work, I now have a solid working relationship with this app, and I can recommend it enthusiastically to any working players with a modicum of techno-chops. I now have 41 active indexes with 40 books present (waiting on #41 to arrive) and in working order, and it's clear to me that this is going to change my gig workflow forever.
My advice to anyone starting to work with this app is to read the Quick Start Guide, and all the "7 Steps" info and every link from that page before beginning.
Although there is a good deal of up-front work to do, it's no actual fault of the program, but the integrity of the data it's designed to manage. It's an amazing app and going forward will provide excellent service to working players who are willing to invest the time.
Many thanks to the developer, I am sure that this app will just keep getting better!
How did I manage without this app?
How do you keep track of your notes, scores and lyrics? As a member of a cover band and over 250 songs in library, I cannot emphasize enough the simplicity and control of creating sets for specific engagements or accessing a song on the fly. A new member of our group, keyboardist, was fumbling through papers for notes and scores during gigs, always needed that big music stand and a light... he finally conceded that that iGigBook was the way to go, bought an iPad Pro and thanks us every time we play. The first time you use iGigBook, you'll wonder why did I wait so long and how did I manage without it?
