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.

"The iPad, with an app like ForScore, is kind of the ultimate sheet music machine, no?" -Gizmodo

What’s New

Version 10.5.2

This version improves support for the newest iPad Pros and includes minor bug fixes. Here's what's new in 10.5:

• Double tap the new Apple Pencil to switch or adjust tools while annotating, or to perform a customizable action when not annotating
• Draw arrows and ovals and use new settings to adjust the properties of certain Shapes
• Avoid accidental input when using Apple Pencil or Logitech Crayon with our simplified "prevent finger drawing" option
• Rearrange multiple pages at once by dragging one page, then tapping others to move them all simultaneously
• Use filters to narrow down the items within a setlist, or filter items anywhere based on their setlist membership
• Magnify your scores by up to 3 times their original size with Reflow's expanded zoom factor and scroll speed
• Recover recently deleted scores and setlists using the Backup panel's new recovery feature
• Enjoy more efficient caching and faster transfer speeds to Cue 1.4.3 or later thanks to iOS' support for the HEIC image format
• Archive your forScore library to a Mac via USB using our new, free backup utility (works great even with limited storage on your iPad)

It works nicely

I’m giving 3 stars because you can’t use the music app while you are using this application (really...??). I need to read my music in other applications if I want to do that.

Highly recommended

This app could hardly be better. Amazing for the money.... there is a learning curve, and it is not absolutely intuitive. That said there is so much that can be done with the app that it’s a good thing to take the time to learn it in depth.

Easy enough to get started and use it even if you do not want to use all of the features.

Wonderful app!

Huge thank you to the developers of this app. Not only is it a wonderful storage and display option for sheet music, but it can associate audio files with each tune and play them back with looping, transposition, and tempo change options—a HUGE plus for use as a practice aid.
