Slow responsiveness and delays when using iOS 11.3

❮ All Categories / General Troubleshooting

A bug in iOS 11.3 can cause forScore to hang for several seconds while it attempts to access the system music player’s current status. This issue is most noticeable when tapping the center of the screen to show the navigation controls and media box, and may occur even if the score you’re viewing has no audio track associated with it. Although we cannot fix this bug, forScore 10.4 and forScore mini 3.4 include the following workaround:

In forScore’s Tools menu, select “Support” and then tap “Troubleshooting” (this item is not visible if you are using an earlier version of iOS). The “Application Music Player” option in this submenu allows forScore to use an independent, app-specific audio player instead of the system’s shared player. When enabled, these delays should no longer occur, however forScore will no longer be able to display playback information or provide remote control abilities for audio playing from other apps, including iOS’ Music app.

We encourage users experiencing this issue to contact Apple directly so they can prioritize this bug and fix it quickly with a future iOS update.
