Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Shelve those 3-ring binders. Get organized. Download and play something new in seconds. With forScore, your sheet music has never been better—it’s everything you can do with paper, and so much more.
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, 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, Bluetooth, 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.
"The iPad, with an app like ForScore, is kind of the ultimate sheet music machine, no?" -Gizmodo
What's New in Version 8.4
Groups is a new service that lets you automatically share read-only copies of your music and setlists with colleagues. Create one or more groups and assign scores, bookmarks, and setlists to them, and once your group members subscribe (and are approved by you) they'll automatically download updated scores, metadata, annotations, and more as you make changes. It's the easiest way to keep everyone on the same page, no matter where you are. Visit forscore.co/groups for complete details.
I was so impressed by this app I went out and got a new iPad Air 2 so I could use it to contain all my paper choral scores. With its many clever tools, I can annotate my scores more neatly and precisely during rehearsals. I now have my entire choral library at my fingertips. Instead of a thick music folder with paper scores held in place by rubber bands, I now use just my iPad. With a black cover & hand strap from I-Blason, the whole thing weighs just under 1.5 pounds (661 grams.)
I seldom take the time to write reviews, but am making an exception for Forscore. I find it incredibly helpful and utterly reliable. With Airturn it's a complete gig solution. I found it complicated at first with a steep learning curve, but that's to be expected with a tool so powerful. Be prepared to spend a bit of time in learning and setup, and you'll be rewarded!
Great app for musicians
I'm using this to replace my 3 ring binder full of song lyrics, chords, and tabs. It takes a while to set up unless you have everything in PDFs, but it's worth it once it's all uploaded. I've been using it for a couple weeks and it's frozen on me twice. Had to close it and reopen it but seems fine afterward.
