NEW IN THIS RELEASE
= Tuner =
Stay in tune without leaving the app. A free powerful Tuner is now at your fingertips.
= Set Lists =
Easily create lists of sheet music or guitar tabs for your next performance or practice session.
= Wishlist =
Spotted a score or tab you like in our store? Now you can add it to your Wishlist to purchase later.
= Practice Tools =
Study the song by slowing down sheet music or guitar tab audio playback, invoking metronome click track or simply mute the track part you're playing so you can feel like part of the band.
= Custom Scores =
Transpose a score to a different key, change instrument audio or note size — and, of course, you can revert back to the original setting any time.
= Import PDF sheet music =
Load the app with your own PDF sheet music from Google Drive, Dropbox or share your PDF scores with other app users by email.
= Perform Like A Pro =
Best-in-class performance mode: full screen score with unobtrusive controls so you can concentrate on what matters — your performance. The app will even flip the pages of a score or a guitar tab for you automatically, or you can do so manually by simply swiping the screen.
= Cloud-based Sync =
Whether you buy sheet music using our iPad app or directly from our website, your library will be in sync everywhere — including all your previous purchases. You can also log into the app using your existing sheetmusicdirect.com account and all your previous purchases will be automatically downloaded to your iPad.
= Search Anywhere =
Search is at the heart of music discovery in the app. Use it to quickly find scores in the Store and narrow the results down to an instrument or arrangement. For instance, if you search for "The Beatles" you'll be able to select just guitar tabs, piano sheet music, and so on.
**AirTurn support for hands-free page turning**

- Fixed an issue where users couldn't access iOS keyboard
- Minor user interface updates
Pros and cons
It's great for instant buying and access to fairly good sheet music (mostly basic playing/easy piano) but the HUGE downside is that you cannot save anything offline, or download for offline later, or print once you've bought. The only way you can access the music you've bought is by constantly being on WiFi. Sometimes, even if you're on WiFi and close the app and reopen it, you'll find that your library is lost and have to then sign out and sign back in to reload your library. Would love to use this for my professional gigs full time but it's a huge hassle every time I get to a gig and lose my library.
Bugs - please fix
Great app but so many bugs it's difficult not to go back to a paper score and stick with it.
1. Sound disappears until the tuning fork is tapped then untapped, then you lose your place and have to start again.
2. When score is expanded to read a note then pinched back, however carefully, the screen disappears.
3. Cannot choose just the base or just the treble clef (to practise left or right hand).
Please fix this could be such a good bit of kit.
Not enough instruments
I play the flute so this app was a complete waste of time
