Major Glitch! Screen randomly goes black

As I’m using the app, the screen randomly goes black and I have to log in again! If this happened during a performance I would be screwed. NOT IMPRESSED! Otherwise the app would be pretty good but this is a deal breaker.

Running iOS 9.3.5. My son has a visual impairment and needs a way to better see music as he learns to play piano. Read about the reflow option and purchased Forscore. Since the developer updated the app it is working very well! The magnification isn't quite large enough for my son, however it works with the zoom accessible option on the IPad, making it as large as he needs it. We use it in the scroll mode. I am very impressed with this ForScore.

If you would like to play music or sing this is the app for you, even with the $10 price it’s worth it.

Wonderful with a few issues

Better than any journal's Review of Forscore

I absolutely love this app, and use it religiously every day. I have been using it for the last two years, and overall don’t have many complaints. Since I have been using it for so long, I feel it’s time I finally left some feedback. There are two issues I have, however; 1. When marking up music, it brings a toolbar up at the top of the screen. When numbering measures at the top, this makes it extremely difficult to write at the top of the score. We need the ability to be able to mark up without the toolbar there, or at least have the ability to move the toolbar to where we would prefer it (like toward the bottom or as a side bar) 2. Since the most recent update, there is a TON of lag when marking up scores. I use the Apple Pencil, and I’ve never had problems. With the recent update, however, whenever I markup my scores, there is a lag between what I’m writing and when it actually appears on the page. It’s so bad that I’m having to actually rewrite markings because it lagged so much the first time I wrote it that it didn’t actually register to the page. It’s so frustrating that it’s getting to where I can’t even mark my scores because the lag is so bad. THIS HAS TO BE FIXED! Aside from these two issues, this app is absolutely wonderful. It is a must have for any serious musician. I hope these two issues can be solved in the future, and hopefully the second issue will be fixed very soon!

So close!

Anyone who’s ever used Notability on the iPad Pro with an Apple Pencil knows how amazing pdf markup can be. ForScore supports this combination, but it is severely lacking. Accidental finger input is still a major issue that hasn’t been fixed and the input bar is still clunky - always getting in the way rather than just moving the music down a bit. Hopefully someday they will address these issues.

Powerful tool

This app is powerful and well worth the money. Super easy to add music and mark it up just how I want it with Apple Pencil. Love the inclusion of set lists. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because the way the drop down menu works it covers the top of the score and makes it very awkward and annoying to try to write on anything at the top of the score. Also would be nice to have a simple chord chart creator. But seriously, I love this app. Update: The developers got back with me about the issue of the top bar and explained how to easily move it out of the way so I can edit at the top of pages. Super great customer service there! Still would like simple chord chart creation but this app which I use every week many times a week for my work is definitely a 5 star app. Most helpful and powerful app I've ever used to date.

Great app

Toob Finger's Review of Forscore

I had been using IK Multimedia iGigBook but one of my complaints with them is I have to use one of their Bluetooth pedals and it doesn’t support using midi messages to turn pages, this app does, now I can just bring one pedalboard to a gig to control turning effects on and off, operating my looper app, and dedicating two of the pedals to turn pages back and forth. I use this for guitar chords and lyrics and it’s super easy to import them into the app as PDF files, I can even create a chord chart in something like Pages on my iPad and then export it from there directly into forScore. Thank you for making an app that doesn’t force you to buy a company’s hardware pedal to make it work, this is a dream come true!
