Using forScore's in-app store

All Categories / Adding Files

We know how hard it can be to find high-quality scores online that don’t force you into using proprietary systems or obscure formats, which is why forScore includes an in-app purchase storefront. It’s the best place to discover, preview, and download free and paid PDF scores that are perfectly optimized for iOS devices.


The storefront can be accessed by selecting the “Store” entry in the tools menu, and features a variety of downloadable scores, browsing categories, articles, our other apps on the App Store, and links to a few of our favorite accessory makers.

Purchasing and Downloading

Your Apple ID is your gateway to purchasing digital content, so you don’t need to worry about entering your payment information directly into the app. Tap any downloadable product to learn more and purchase or re-download it. Content begins downloading immediately once your transaction has finished processing, and you can monitor its progress or cancel a download from the product’s page or by tapping “My Purchases” in the top left-hand corner of the storefront’s main view.

The “My Purchases” button lists all downloadable content you’ve purchased through forScore and allows you to monitor downloads or re-download previously purchased content (even if it’s no longer available for sale). If you don’t see an item in the list, use the Restore function to unlock any previous purchases that you may have made from another device, then re-download them as needed.

Copy Protection

Although we don’t copy protect any of the content currently available for purchase through the in-app purchase storefront, some third-party scores sold in the past are restricted in this way. These files can be backed up to a computer for safe keeping, but they can only be viewed on the device that was originally used to download them. They cannot be shared, printed, or rearranged.

To view protected files on another iPad authorized with your Apple ID, you must re-download those files through the storefront. As long as you use the same Apple ID each time, you won’t be charged more than once.
