Slow responsiveness and delays when using iOS 11.3

❮ All Categories / General Troubleshooting

A bug in iOS 11.3 or later can cause forScore to hang for several seconds while it attempts to access and control the system music player. This issue 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 a partial 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. After enabling this setting and restarting forScore 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 have been working hard to understand the exact cause of this issue and have reported everything we know to Apple in the hopes that they will be able to fix the underlying issues soon. In the mean time, we are continuing to develop a more permanent workaround that does not prevent users from using other audio playback features, and we currently anticipate releasing it later this month (June) with forScore 10.4.6 and forScore mini 3.4.6.
