4.2 Update

| News

Today we’re proud to introduce forScore 4.2, available now through the App Store. This update includes a number of important bug fixes and enhancements, and is also fully tested and compatible with iOS 6.

While 4.2 is mostly an under-the-hood revision, the most obvious change relates to forScore’s ability to control playback of songs that are already playing when the app launches—we’ve made it optional, and disabled it by default. We think it’s an invaluable feature for some, but we also recognize that it can be confusing and unnecessary for others, and we hope that this change helps clear things up. We’ve also added edit/batch edit options to the bookmarks menu, and we’ve included the ability to download setlists through the built-in browser.

After careful consideration, we’ve also decided to end support for iOS 4 with this update. Every iPad model is capable of running iOS 5, and since the vast majority of our customers have already upgraded, we’re confident that this is the right time to move forward. By targeting iOS 5 or later, we’re able to make our code simpler, more reliable and flexible, and we’ll be free to adopt newer system-wide features.

As always, this update wouldn’t be possible without the tremendous support and feedback of our customers, so thank you—we’re proud to call such a vibrant and engaged community our audience, and we’ll keep working hard every day to make forScore even better.
