"This is the best new tool for any musician."
(PRWEB) January 01, 2015
“ForScore” was featured on NewsWatch as part of its monthly AppWatch, which features the latest and coolest mobile applications on the iOS, Android, and Windows markets. Andrew Tropeano, a mobile technology expert and host of NewsWatch, conducted the app review and shared with viewers how this is an application for users to digitize sheet music.
Designed as a replacement for binders and sheet music, this app allows musicians to digitize and replace all that paper. At its very core, ForScore is an organizational tool and viewer for sheet music. It allows users to download or import PDF sheet music. Then, the built-in search engine makes it so even a huge library doesn't become unwieldy.
ForScore users can easily rearrange or duplicate pages to handle repeats, as well. It includes text and drawing tools for making notes in rehearsal. The half page turn feature gives users a preview of the top half of the following page so there are no jarring transitions. And speaking of turning pages, it's compatible with Bluetooth page turners and pedal devices so users can turn pages hands free. Conductors can even have the capability to sync their iPads with choir or orchestra members' iPads, allowing them to turn their pages for them. ForScore is used by choirs, orchestras, jazz musicians and even university marching bands.The app goes for $9.99 on the iPad and $6.99 for the iPhone version.
