About Us

Our Apps

forScore

On January 27th, 2010, Apple introduced the iPad. It revolutionized industries and confounded the press, 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 version 1.0. Since then, we’ve leveraged the support and feedback of our uniquely passionate customer base to release almost two hundred free updates to forScore, all in service of our primary goal: to make the best sheet music reader.

In 2014, forScore came to the iPhone and iPod Touch thanks in large part to Reflow, one of our most innovative features that enhances readability on small screens without relying on specially-formatted file types. With the release of macOS 11 later this year, forScore comes to the Mac with full support for drag and drop, contextual menus, the touch bar, and more.

forScore Music Box

Over the years, we also introduced several standalone versions of our most popular audio tools: Beat Keeper, Pitch, Please!, and TuneWave. We also expanded our remote control protocol, Cue, by creating a combination standalone remote app and dual page viewer. All four apps are currently offered as part of the forScore Music Box app bundle and are available for iOS, iPadOS, and macOS.

Nocturne

In 2017, after two years of intermittent development as a passion project, we released our single-track MIDI recorder called Nocturne. Its desktop-class power is presented within a thoughtfully streamlined interface that provides musicians everything they need to faithfully capture multiple takes of their solo performances without burdening them with the fine-grained controls of complex studio apps.

Badger

Apple’s PDFKit framework, available for over a decade to Mac developers, finally made its way over to iOS devices with iOS 11. We knew that our forScore customers and many others could benefit from its ability to expose and edit native PDF attributes, so we created Badger: PDF Negotiator which offers thorough PDF metadata viewing and editing, layout adjustment and page rotation, and more.

Our Company

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.
