Shelve those 3-ring binders. Get organized. Download and play something new in seconds. With forScore, the original sheet music reader for iPad, your scores have never been better—it’s everything you can do with paper and so much more. As seen in Apple retail stores worldwide!

From the moment you launch the app, you’ll see how forScore puts your music front and center. Don’t let the interface’s simplicity fool you, though—forScore has an arsenal of tools ready to help you turn practice into performance. Create links to handle repeats with a single tap, play along to an audio track, and use half-page turns to see the bottom half of the current page and the top half of the next one at the same time, removing jarring transitions once and for all.

Thanks to forScore’s ability to import virtually any PDF file from the web and connect directly to services like Dropbox or download your Musicnotes.com purchases, it’s not only the best music reader around, it’s also the world’s library of sheet music—just millimeters thick. Keep those scores organized by tagging your files and let forScore do the rest with its dynamic menus that are always up to date. You can also create, share, and play through setlists for a fully manual approach to grouping and arranging your files.

And when it comes to annotation, forScore's flexibility is unparalleled. Create and edit an unlimited number of drawing presets, add text to your page with adjustable formatting, and add common musical notation symbols with our unique stamps feature (you can even draw or import your own designs). When you're done, share your files and annotations with friends via email, AirDrop, or print them out with AirPrint!

Under the hood, you'll notice forScore's finely-tuned algorithms that use every millisecond of downtime without ever getting in your way. They keep your library organized, make page turns virtually instantaneous, and even learn from you to give you the best possible experience.

That's just the beginning—be sure to visit forscore.co to learn all about forScore's incredible features and find out why so many musicians agree that forScore is simply the best.

Excellent so far


So far I am loving this app! It has so many features to help manage and organise my sheet music PDF’s. I’ve only had the app for one week and already I think it has change how I will use sheet music, I may never go back to hardcopies😊

This amazing app just gets better

I love this app. I work as an arranger and musical director in theatre and it has changed the way I work! Now I do my arrangements and annotations directly on the PDF files and can attach audio tracks to each work. I've even conducted a whole show and run all the backing tracks straight from my iPad. Great stuff all together - it does everything I need it to and when I had a question the support from the developers was terrific too.
Each update brings incredibly handy and well-designed tools. I'm now considering upgrading to an iPad Pro just to use the extra Pencil features with ForScore.
Well done and thank you. Highly recommended!

forScore really is an amazing app. It goes far beyond what iBooks or other PDF readers can do on iPad. One of the best features is you can scroll down the page or turn it by tapping on the right, or go back a page by tapping on the left. Also getting a score into the app is as easy as mailing yourself a PDF and you get the option to open it in forScore.

I can see a future where all my choir members will have iPads and I can instantly zap them a score - goodbye paper and printer ink costs and hassle!
