1.4 Available Now

| news

We are happy to announce the immediate availability of forScore 1.4. With features like page linking, margin adjustment, media binding, and more, forScore 1.4 is the perfect tool for musicians on the go. Read more about this update here.

Please note that while iTunes incorrectly lists this update as being version 1.3.2 on the store, the issue is related to the app store alone and will not affect the functionality or distribution of the update.

Upcoming features

| news

Update 1.4, submitted to Apple earlier this week, is the biggest update to forScore since it was introduced just over two months ago. Thanks to the support of our customers, we’ve been able to invest more and more in our app, and we wanted to take a moment to highlight some of the major features that you’ll be seeing soon:

Margin adjustment
The new zoom tool in the metadata panel allows you to adjust page margins on a per-file basis. The iPad’s screen isn’t as big as a regular sheet of paper, so eliminating extra white space is the best way to maximize your viewing experience. Best of all, it’s saved for each file so you don’t have to change it every time you switch to another piece of score.

Links
The most frequent feature request from users was the ability to handle repeats. With 1.4, you can now create two link points in your score- a blue circle that acts like a hotspot, and an orange circle that acts as a signal. Tap the blue hotspot and you’ll be automatically taken to the correct page, where the orange spot will flash twice, showing you exactly where to begin playing. (The orange signal points are invisible until you tap a hotspot.)

Music binding
This is a feature we really wanted to get right. Instead of hunting for a track every time you need to hear your score, we created a way of binding a recording to a piece of score, so that it’s accessible though a clean, efficient interface that disappears when it’s not needed. When you’re viewing a piece of score with a song bound to it, tap the screen to show the controls and the media box will appear giving you quick access to playback. Navigate to a piece of score without any music information tied to it and the media box disappears, keeping your focus where it belongs.

We’ve also added quicker setlist creation, batch edit/email, sub-view search, BPM persistence for user files, better PDF download support for sites like Google Docs and Dropbox, improved support for large libraries, and more.

Thank you for your interest and support. We couldn’t have done it without you!
