Customer Reviews

A great start

The reformatting for tablets is fantastic. They look great! I love using these editions. They seem to add a few more works every month--I don't see any rhyme or reason to the choice of repertoire, but am thrilled the the Bach cantatas (Neue Bach Ausgabe) are appearing regularly.

Navigation has its quirks. Going from one movement to another is rather clunky. Repeats--you're on your own scrolling back. Annotations are possible, but not exactly as easy as old-fashioned pencil on paper.

But for reading through a score, I just love this. Highly recommended.

Disappearing scores

This app has the bad habit of erasing all scores (apart form the Debussy demo) and forcing the user to restore all purchases.
I have not figured out, nor do I want to, how and when the scores disappear. Enough to say that it is not only annoying but also impractical; imagine you need to use the app when you have no network access and your scores need to be restored.
I hope that this is not a "feature".
