forScore 4.1

| news

We’re in high gear following the introduction of forScore 4, and today we’re proud to announce the immediate availability of version 4.1. This version fixes bugs and continues the streamlining process we began with 4.0, but also includes a few small refinements based on feedback we’ve received from our users.

We’ve reintroduced the “unknown genre” category, adding to it a new “unknown keywords” category as well. We’ve also made the “flip between scores” setting even more flexible, adding a “setlists” option that allows you to play through an entire setlist without returning to the menu while still preventing you from accidentally turning too far in other situations.

Version 4.1 is available now on the App Store, still just $4.99 (USD) for new customers and a free update for all existing users. There’s more to come soon, so stay tuned, and thanks for your incredible support!

More Updates

| news

We’re happy to announce the immediate availability of Beat Keeper 2.0, the first major update to our standalone metronome app for iPhone and iPod Touch. Version 2.0 adds a new fullscreen animation for improved visibility, and includes localization for Chinese, Dutch, French, German, Italian, and Spanish. It has also been updated to use the latest iOS technologies, and has a dramatically smaller footprint.

Our other standalone app for the small screen, Pitch, Please!, will also be getting an update in the next few days: version 1.1 will also feature a much smaller footprint and will include louder piano samples.

Of course, the update that’s really stealing the spotlight is the newest version of forScore. Despite a few initial bugs that we’re working hard to resolve, the update has seen an incredible response and we couldn’t be more proud of it. We made a ton of changes, so if you notice any issues please let us know. We may never make a perfect app, but we’re always ready to tackle the issues that do sneak through. As always, we couldn’t do it without you—thank you!

Update: Pitch, Please! 1.1 is now available.

Version 4.0

We’re happy to announce the immediate availability of forScore 4.0, a free update for all existing users and still the same great $4.99 (USD) for everyone else. This update touches every corner of the app and improves upon a great foundation by making features smarter, faster, and simpler. We’ve worked hard to make this the best version of forScore yet, and we’re sure you’ll love it. See all fifty new features and enhancements, and be sure to check out forScore 4.0 on the app store today.

Sneak Peek: forScore 4.0

| news

Today we’re very excited to give you a sneak peek at the next major version of forScore, version 4.0. Things have been quiet around here as we work hard to get ready for such a big update, and we think you’ll agree that it was worth the wait when we release it in the next few weeks.

We started by combing through every part of the app to make it better, faster, and more efficient than ever before. Annotations are more responsive, library routines are smarter, and page turns benefit from an all-new adaptive caching system that takes advantage of every millisecond of downtime without ever getting in your way. Just a few page flips and you’ll see why we codenamed this version Mercury—it’s the lightest, fastest version yet.

There’s more than just speed, though: version 4.0 also greatly improves your workflow. For instance, most menus now include multi-select for iOS 5 users; that means you can choose one or more scores and then perform a variety of actions on those scores, rather than having to always work backwards. It’s one of the most important changes we’ve ever made to forScore, and we think you’ll love it.

Of course, forScore is only as good as your content, and we’re making it even easier for you to find high-quality scores by introducing a full in-app purchase storefront. It’s the best place to discover, preview, and download free and paid scores that are optimized for the iPad. We’re working with artists and publishers alike, so let us know if you’d like to participate.

Version 4.0 is packed with lots of other great new features, too: setlist sharing, audio track looping, page note reminders, annotation font styles, and two new page transition options are just the beginning.

As always, this update wouldn’t exist without the incredible participation and feedback from our users, so thank you. Your passion is why we work hard every day to make forScore even better, and version 4.0 is no exception. We can’t wait to share it with you.
