Ratings and Reviews
I've always like Henle scores in print. The app brings a growing library of them to the iPad. Much more convenient than carrying several books around, no worry of wear and tear on physical scores. The new addition of set lists is very helpful if you have a large library and want to organize them by performance or current literature.
I can't speak to the Apple Pencil, as I don't use it, and rarely heavily mark my scores. The occasional fingering, articulation, or dynamic I add, I have no issues.
I did have a question for their customer service department, and they were quick to respond, helpful and friendly.
I'd of course love to see their entire catalogue available at once, but they do add to their catalogue regularly and are receptive to customer requests for pieces to be added.
Best Quality Digital Sheet Music
By far the highest quality classical UrText editions in print, but now available as an app. Great playing mode. Works with page turning pedals. Excellent discoverability of new music. Most print editions are available. The annotations need some improvement but you can print to PDF and ForeScore and use that for annotations instead. Excellent support and quick response.
Great user interface but the free-writing feature could be SO MUCH BETTER!
I love buying my Henle scores on this app and have them everywhere I go. The only thing that bugs me is when I want to make notes on the score, it is EXTREMELY DIFFICULT to write on. It forms a square box for every single stroke you draw and after you finish writing even one word, there are like 10 boxes and it’s very annoying and ineffective. Other than that, this is a five-star app for its innovation and affordability.
Developer Response ,
Dear Yang Shi Wei, Thank you very much for your feedback! We are actually working on improving the annotations. There will be an update, probably later this year, that will make this much more convenient. Best, Your Henle Library Team
