GigBook was conceived and designed with the performing musician and music educator in mind. With powerful and versatile organizing features you can sort your music to fit your individual needs.
GigBook allows you to be truly mobile. You can house all your songbooks in one place with Collections. Pull out individual scores from those songbooks with Super Bookmarks. Compile scores into infinite personalized Binders. Create dynamic Set Lists. GigBook is unlike any other music viewer available for the iPad.

~ Support for any sized PDF.
~ Beautiful and elegant UI.
~ Scores appear in full screen view.
~ Unlimited organization for all your scores with custom binders.

~ Add score details to each score including: title, composer, genre, time signature, key signature, and tempo.
~ Add and view notes for each score.
~ Collections allows you to house all of your books, volumes, songbooks, handouts, or any large multi-score pdf in one place for easy access.
~ Super Bookmarks allows you to pull out a single score from a multi-score collection to be used in your binders or set lists.
