Great free app option 5/5
The free app provides viable functionalities even without buying in-app purchases yet. Score notation, notes, highlight etc etc. I also love the metronome and the “movie” function that automatically connects to you tube to find song performances with the title of your sheet music, and you can play the YouTube performance along with your score. Used it for choir choral music. Loving it considering how much other apps charge for basic functionality.
Great App 5/5
This app fills my needs perfectly, although I currently only use it for practice, not performance so far. I love that I can have thousands of pages of scores at my fingertips. Annotations work well and it works well with the two page turning foot pedals I have.
VERY good! Now, just a couple of things... 5/5
Use it every day — terrific! Do you have the user manual anywhere besides Facebook? (I’m not on Facebook.) Thanks!
As a professional musician I use this app on my iPad Pro for my daily conducting /playing/ practicing/ studying/ accompanying/ teaching work at the podium, as well as the piano and the trombone. I simply scan my music using TurboScan (an indispensable app!) and send it to Dropbox, then download it to the PiaScore app. Then I compile set lists for each day, as well as tags to quickly find music for each of the many categories I need for my eclectic schedule.
When I first starting using this app about six months ago, I noticed that adding annotations slowed down the page-turning process, so since that time I have avoided using annotations in scores I use for rehearsal or performance (annotations for study is ok as I can make an extra copy of a PDF and mark it up for that purpose.) If PiaScore has improved upon this bug I haven't read about it, but since I can't take the chance of a slow page turn in performance I simply avoid annotations in those scores altogether.
All in all an terrific app — if PiaScore would (or has) fixed the annotation-page-turn problem then I would recommend it unreservedly!
piaScore 4.0.1 5/5
Love this app! It's great for practicing (I'm a singer in a choral group) and way better for recording than using sheet music - no paper rustling noise that high quality recording mics can pick up!
Great Support - Great App! 5/5
I've been using PiaScore for the past several months. It does exactly what it is supposed to do!
A few tips. Take advantage of the SetList feature. Also, if you use a pedal, try the different paging modes. Also, it helps, sometimes to create blank PDFs just for spacing in your set.
Regarding support: I didn't like the metronome, and contacted Support with my issues. By the next release, they had added a much better metronome that worked better and had more features! The support team is great!
The import feature works as advertised. When my music director sends me a PDF, from my gmail on ipad, I can import the PDF directly into PiaScore.
I am a huge fan of the markup feature. Between markup and tags, this is a nice feature for remembering orchestration in a piece that is used seasonally.
My orchestra director was so impressed, that he is contemplating getting electronic pads for all the musicians.
Great work, PiaScore!
Nice, but 2/5
Looks great, and is good for organizing. Turning pages is a bit buggy though, and really unreliable. A lot of times tapping any of the navigation buttons will do nothing. Very frustrating when trying to play through a piece.
Nice features. A bit cumbersome. 3/5
Haven't found a way to download multiple scores at once. Also, when I'm downloading, I have to keep re navigating back to the folder as it brings me to the star every time. Would rather it bring me back to where I last was.
Great app 4/5
By Gerard C
I like this app for my music notes and pdf, can you add a feature ware you can make the piano board display on top of the score so we can play the notes in that particular score, thanx
Great App 4/5
Bought other similar apps to collect musical scores but this is the one I always use due to it's easy navigation.
Great App 5/5
A great tool 5/5
I use PiaScore almost daily and keep several set lists up to date with very little effort. Not sure what I would do without it.
Great APP 5/5
I love PiaScore. It is easy and intuitive. It lets me put all my music into one spot with set lists or just go straight to the song. I can annotate with my Apple Pencil and it scrolls while I play. On top of that, it's free!
Great app 5/5
Very happy with this app...does everything I need easily.
Fantastic App 5/5
By Patrick Baue
I'm in love with this app! It makes arranging music so much easier and it simplifies performing. Five stars, no doubt.
Great App! 5/5
Very user friendly!!
Does everything I need 5/5
By Old Bumpy
PiaScore has been really great with my iPad Pro. I have used it for practicing and in several live performances. It's reliable and has all the features I can imagine I'd ever need.
Great score reader! 5/5
Best score reader I have used! I could hardly wait until Apple came out with the iPadPro so the screen would be larger. It was everything I hoped it would be. Now I can carry a huge library of music (flute, piano, Baroque flute, recorder, harpsichord & even crumhorn, dizi, & xiao) wherever I go … between studios, rehearsals, etc. Most of my teaching materials are on my iPad now so if a student forgets the music … no problem wherever I am teaching. No more dog-eared music or music that is falling apart; no more lost music! Pairing with air turn works like a charm. Love the ability to annotate!
Nice app 5/5
By Tom Cruciani
I use this all the time.
Does no work 5/5
I click and only half open, please go help me. I update and no work,
The best app! 5/5
By Love Piascore
I've been using piaScore on my iPad everyday for the past three months. I use it in conjunction with my scanner app, and with these two apps, I never again will have to carry the 20 lbs of paper music I used to lug around everywhere. Marking up any file you open on piaScore is remarkably easy, and it has every available function you could ask for. It has pen functions, highlighting functions, options to "stamp" musical symbols, etc. It also has a built-in metronome, audio/video player, and recorder. I can't rave about this app enough--so many of my friends use it now!
Don't pay for it 2/5
I bought this app to add functionality and share it with my family as we all serve on our worship team. I am unable to share the purchase and it functions exactly the same as the free version other than the ability import music that is more than 2 pages which I never ever use. Plus I am unable to share the playlists I make even with my sons on the weeks we serve together, which is most. I paid for it hoping the share function would start to work but the shared playlist is not able to be opened. A total waste of money. The free version is good enough.
Thank you for the response but now it won't even allow me to try to share. I simply get a "fail share" message whenever I try.
Pretty good 3/5
Use it to find almost all my music.
My Sheet Music App. 5/5
I use this app when I am up on stage playing.
No more shuffling papers or lugging around a heavy notebook with all of my chord charts for our Praise and Worship songs. It's all neatly organized here in this app.
Great app 5/5
I've had this app for some time, but only recently started using it. Now I wonder what took me so long! It's easy to use and clean and clear.
Clean, quick, lean. Just great. 5/5
I use piaScore for chord sheets that I create. I lay out the chord sheets, upload a PDF to my Google drive, and then download them to piaScore from within the app. I love being able to create setlists within the app, and the tag function is great, too. While reading the crowd during the night, I can tap on a tag of the genre I have in mind, and there's a list of songs from which to choose.
Also, I had an issue with sharing a setlist to another device, so I emailed the developer, and I had an email back within five minutes!
Hate/Love this app! 5/5
I've got a hate / love relationship with this app. Hate it because I had the idea of tablet-based scoring years ago and never followed through on developing it... I *LOVE* the app because it's freaking awesome and, frankly, better than anything I would have developed. piaScore has radically changed the way I play piano, and exponetially increased the pleasure I get from playing. A must-have app for piano players of any level!
Nothing good about this app 1/5
By New on it
What?? You can only save two pages on the free version? Unworthy app. Don't waste your time or iPad ram space.
Wonderful app and personal assistance 5/5
I love the music tools and I find them very useful to learn music. Furthermore, you can get personal, responsive help from Hiroyuki. Really incredible. I hope someday it will do Midi as well.
Great app 5/5
By L1v3 Strong
Works great with a Bluetooth PageFlip FireFly.
New enhancements and bug fixes make a huge difference. Thanks!
Does everything very well 4/5
I have been using this app for over a year and found it very helpful.
Now back to practice!
It's an amazing app... as a film composer it helps me to arrange all my parts. That's all I have to say, the app is wonderfully amazing in all aspects.
By Hoai pham
Very good thanks !
Cool App 5/5

This is truly the best app to check out pierce of music.
Great music score reader! 5/5
By B&J Duo
I had a free version before but just upgraded and synced with the Bluetooth Music Pedal by Coda.Just used it today and enjoying this app. Highly recommended And easy to use. Chat support very responsive.
So convenient! 5/5
No more printing orchestral scores! This app is amazing and so useful.
I love practicing with it, adding my bowings as easily as on a paper.
A must have.
Great so far 4/5
App is easy enough to use, including downloading the free online scores. Searching could be improved, but that may be a byproduct of the free online scores site itself, as it is not the easiest to narrow down searches on the imslp site.
They also have good customer service. I couldn't figure out how to import bookmarks from my own PDFs files, and I got a response the same day.
Great sheet music viewer 5/5
I like the ability to put my sheet music on pdf. This program works great for changing pages on the fly. It also allows you to place notes on the pdf, like new chords or changes to the music that you want to make. Great product, works well. I love it.
Love this app! 5/5
By Tads Music
I use the in 3 different church campuses live and also to teach my guitar students. I've use several other but this is flat out the BEST!!!
Get this app!
Quick to work. 4/5
This app does what it should: gets the music in front of me quickly.
Great App 5/5
This app is great for all musicians and finding sheet music is quite easy. Also the chat support in this app is quite useful and it allows musicians to ask questions, and suggest concerns. They respond immediately and the team is very polite.
Best classical sheet music app, period. 5/5
Easily downloads and displays an unbelievable amount of classical scores.
Very clear display, easy page turning.
I like this app but the latest update crashes on launch. Please fix.
Crashes all of the time 2/5
It constantly crashes. It's also not very well organized. Music looks beautiful but I prefer forscore to organize sheet music
Love this App 5/5
By Violin examiner
It does pay to do your research! I had been looking for music-reading apps, but didn't want to take a chance on an app in performance before seeing what other professional musician's were using. When I came across this app it seemed like the one I wanted to try and I haven't been disappointed. I've taken just about all my performance library of violin parts with me on vacation. I'm able to edit parts, place them in set list in preparation for the various churches I perform for, and adjust the performance scrolling speed based on my tempi so that I can do the entire performance hands free without a pedal if I choose to. Being able to edit on the fly is great and makes learning new works possible without having to download the piece with your edits already installed. A lot of forethought went into preparing this app for use, and it shows!
Excellent app for musicians 5/5
Filled with great festures. Easy to learn and use.
Not free if you take 2 pictures or more! 2/5
This free app allows 2 pictures, otherwise you pay. If your move while taking a picture, after you bought the upgrade, your picture is blurred. No easy way to take picture. The App Store has no sheet music to buy, nor does it allow you to log in, nor does it send you a link for a new password. Adobe is the best way to read your PDF music sheets. This app is a waste of time and money.
Love this APP 5/5
I absolutely loce this APP, I have digitalized most of my partitions so I can use them with the iPad.
I am lucky that I have a digital piano where I can synchronize the iPad with the pedals and use it for page turning!
Great app. Easy to use! 5/5
I used the free version and it was great. Upgraded to premium to get all the bells and whistles.
Complexity with simplicity 4/5
A curious assortment of sheet music with viewing options getting 1st class (no offense but it's not there yet!) Try and see if ur inner Beethoven comes to pic a score.
Great for piano 5/5
So much faster touching a screen to turn a page than arpeggio dog-ear song books. Nice that the dev continues to refine the interface. Works perfectly on my iPad Air II.
