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 8.3
Adds direct support for the AirTurn PED in mode 1, allowing you to take full advantage of this great new page turner's low power consumption and improved integration with iOS.
Edit: This app keeps getting better with every release! Kudos to the developers.
Edit 2: I am really impressed by the developers of this app. They keep adding features and improving functionality.
This app is a very good music reading application. There are many different ways of importing scores including my favorite, Dropbox. Page turining is very fast, all you need to do is touch the current page and the next or previous page is displayed. If you need to jump multiple pages, the Link featrue works great. Writing or typing on the score is easy. It is even easier if you zoom in before you write or type.
The only negative is that standard 8.5x11 pages are small on the iPad screen. You can crop and zoom, but it would be better if there was a crop and zoom on the fly mode. Maybe something like a gesture that zooms to a preset level.
No complaints, this app works very well and is a great value!
Until recently I have been very happy with ForScore. However, right now it does not allow me to turn the pages. I have to go to the spy glass every time for the next song. Also, it will fade out in about 40 seconds and if I don't tap it immediately, it will go black. I'm at a loss to know how to correct these problems.
This app is great for studying, practicing, performing, and simply compiling scores. forScore should consider developing an app for the OSX platform as well!
