Beat Keeper 3.2

| news

Today we’re proud to announce the immediate availability of Beat Keeper 3.2, a free update to our standalone metronome app. This update adds plus and minus buttons for making precise BPM adjustments (which will also be coming to forScore 10 later this summer). Beat Keeper is now also a universal app, so it’ll run on your iPad as well as your iPhone and iPod Touch. It supports Slide Over and Split View too, allowing you to use it while you work with other apps.


With today’s update, all of the apps in our Music Box are now universal. That means our utilities can be nearby no matter which device you’re using, and we think it’ll be a great introduction to the forScore family for iPad users who haven’t yet taken the plunge. Get Beat Keeper 3.2 today, free for existing users and $0.99 (USD) on its own, or get the whole Music Box for $3.99 (pro-rated if you’ve bought any of its apps already).

Sneak Peek: forScore 10

| news

After many months of hard work, today we’re very excited to give you a first look at our next major update, forScore 10. In lieu of our typical series of smaller sneak peeks, we’ve put together a huge preview page that gives you a great look at much of what’s coming later this summer.

It’s hard to believe we’re here putting the final touches on the tenth major version of forScore, and we couldn’t have done it without the tremendous support of our customers. As always, thank you.

NYTimes: When Classical Musicians Go Digital

| news

This Sunday’s print edition of the New York Times will feature an article discussing the shift from paper to digital sheet music, but a version of the article is already available online. We were interviewed for the article, and while none of our comments made it into the final piece, it’s a great look at the transition and especially the impact it can have on annotation.

Beta Testing

| news

Today we released forScore 9.4 and forScore mini 2.4, kicking off the start of what’s sure to be a busy summer for us. We’re working hard on a big new update and, with Apple presumably set to announce and start publicly testing iOS 10 next month at their annual developer’s conference, there’s a lot to get excited about.

Of course, it takes a lot of work to refine a beta version and turn it into something that’s ready for release. Often the only way to find and fix bugs and usability issues is to get it into the hands of as many people as possible. That’s why we use TestFlight—Apple’s beta testing service—to work through those problems. Beta testing is more than just getting a sneak peek at new features and updates, it requires attentive and communicative users who are passionate about helping to make forScore the best app it can be. If you’re up to the challenge, consider becoming a beta tester. Our beta testers provide invaluable feedback and their participation is sincerely appreciated.

forScore 9.4

| news

Today we’re proud to announce the immediate availability of forScore 9.4 and forScore mini 2.4. These updates includes some new enhancements designed to improve usability in two key areas:

First, we’ve added a new section in forScore’s settings panel called “annotation tools” that gives you more control over how annotation mode saves your last-used tool or preset. Choose which tools can be saved between annotation sessions and which should not, or specify one particular drawing preset that will always be active every time you begin annotating. The new settings are available for all devices, but should be especially helpful for users with Apple Pencil and forScore’s live annotations enabled.

We’ve also made it easier to download scores from a cloud service directly to a setlist. Either tap and hold an item or use the “Edit” button to select multiple items and then tap and hold the download button in the toolbar. Or, if you’re using iOS 8 or higher, you can also swipe left over an item and select the new “Download…” option. Once you do, you can choose to download the item(s) to your library like you normally would, download them to the current setlist (if you’re playing or viewing one), or download them to any setlist in your library.

These specific enhancements really boost productivity in key areas, and we think they’ll make a big difference. Thanks as always to our customers—and especially our beta testers—for helping us continue to make forScore the best app it can be. These updates are free for all existing users and still just $9.99 and $6.99 (USD) for newcomers, so be sure to check them out today!
