On January 27th, 2010, Apple introduced the iPad. It revolutionized industries and confounded bloggers, and the moment we saw it we knew it was the ultimate sheet music machine. We immediately set to work crafting forScore, and a few very short months later we introduced forScore 1.0. Since then, we’ve leveraged the support and feedback of our uniquely passionate customer base to release over a hundred versions of forScore. We’ve added a tremendous number of features and we’ve worked to constantly refine the experience and enhance usability all in service of our primary goal: to make the best sheet music reader.
In 2014 our flagship app was joined by its small-screen sibling, forScore mini. It was made possible only after more than a year of hard work spent crafting Reflow, one of our most innovative features that enhances readability on small screens without relying on specially-formatted file types. Over the years, we also introduced several iPhone-sized versions of our most popular audio tools: our metronome (Beat Keeper), pitch pipe (Pitch, Please!), and tuner (TuneWave). We also expanded our remote control protocol, Cue, by creating a standalone remote app for iPhone and iPod touch.
forScore and its fellow apps are proudly made in Vancouver, Washington by forScore, LLC. There are no investors to please, no salespeople, and there’s no middle management. Our developer is also our designer and the person who answers your support emails is the same person you’ll meet at events in Apple retail stores. You don’t need a big team and trendy business models to make big changes in the world, you just need the vision and willpower. We envision a music reader that does everything paper can and more, and we work tirelessly to realize it. That’s who we are.
