INTELLIGENT PAGE LAYOUT
The unparalleled feature of Calypso Score is its intelligent page layout capability. Thus your small iPad is even better as your paper sheets: when you have to jump back or ahead over several pages, Calypso Score automatically layouts the sheets in such a way, that you may see the bars both before and after the jump! Watch the demo at www.calypso-score.com.
Calypso Score is designed to do a really good job without the need of external page turner devices. But Calypso Score also supports both Bluetooth and MIDI devices and in some situations they could be helpful. You may use them for usual page turnings but also to assist the intelligent page layout.
You can assign songs from your iPod library to your score and easily synchronize them. Thus you tap on a bar of your score and hear the music at that bar. Sync your play-a-long music with the scores. Or simply scan your school book and sync the scores with its included audio CD.
You can record your music as you play on a gig or during your exercises. Then, as with synced audio, tap on any bar to hear the recording at that position.
Even better, you may playback any recording at a slower speed and/or change the pitch. This is a great feature for practicing with playalongs.
SHEET MUSIC ORGANIZER
Organize all your sheets within song books. Easily and quickly make set lists. Name your sets. Rearrange your sets. Quickly mark your songs with colored labels. Annotate your scores with text, drawings and many musical symbols.
FAKE BOOKS & AEBERSOLDS
But, there is one more thing ...: Calypso Score currently knows many popular fake books! Scan your own fake books or get a copy of them from the many sources in the net and import them to Calypso. You then have direct access to all titles of your PDF. You may also search for a title in one or even in all your fake books.
You can easily adjust existing indexes to your PDF in case of missing or additional pages.
Make an index of your own PDF files.
(no fake books are provided for obvious reasons)

Best sheet music app ever!
I am a full time professional gigging musician. I used to use multiple binders filled with charts to go to gigs with. After trying every other sheet music app I could find, and not being happy, I almost gave up. I then found Calypso Score and I couldn't be happier! From syncing music with backing tracks for soloist to eliminate page turns, to sharing music with band members, this app does everything! Getting this app has helped me improve my performances and, in turn, allowed me to raise my prices. If you are a serious gigging musician, you owe it to yourself to get this app. Finally, the customer service is second to none. I can't even say the last time I received such great customer service, this is amazing top to bottom!
Calypso-Score is absolutely fantastic and does everything it claims. I have read several of the bad reviews and assume it is a problem of the user not following directions. I was confused at first and the support I received always resolved my issue and questions were answered in less than 24 hours. The problems I encounterd were only the result of being anxious to use the program and now I use it for all my fake books and it works perfect. Now I don't understand why I had any problems. Any problems I had were by my own making. Thank you for a great app.
