Music Library List vs. Set Lists
The titles still stay on the Music Library List menu even if you transferred it to a Set List that you've created. And renaming a file closes the apps after hitting the Save button. Also, some of my scanned PDFs are incorrectly displayed and is displaced on the screen. Responsiveness to go to the other page slows down if the file is big (like a 15+ page file). Other features are excellent, specially the metronome.
Features like retrieving PDFs from email or mobile me would be helpful, but what makes this app unusable for me is 1) no way to zoom in on a song (when I put this on a music stand and perform, I need the text to be as large as possible and take up the entire screen) and 2. Page turning is far too slow to actually turn a page in the middle of a song. Flick the screen and about 3 seconds later the page is done turning. Still yet to find a great app for sheet music. You wouldn't think it would be that hard.
Could be better
The best I can say for this app is that it works... most of the time. I can get scores and turn the pages. But the list of scores is completely unpredictable, and half the time it crashes when I rename a score. This app has potential, I just wish the developers would come back to it and fix the problems that, clearly, everyone here has been dealing with.
