It’s alright but the touch controls are absolutely abysmal and need to be fixed
It’s alright but the touch controls are absolutely abysmal and need to be fixed
I bought this specifically to transpose one piece of music. The instructions told me to use a gear sign which wasn’t there. I wasted an afternoon on this and finally deleted the app.
The app does basically what it says it’s just a song book. You cannot write music through the app but can play yours and others pieces. The only reason I give this only three stars is because for some reason the percussion doesn’t make the proper sounds and instead makes random high pitch frequencies.
I love this app a lot but I’m having a small problem. If I have marching music selected and playing it thinks the marching percussion are a brass instrument. The snares are like a trumpet sound and tenors are mellophones. And so on. Then some times it will not read the tenor or bass parts at all. Lease fix this! The computer app is fine it’s just on the iOS device! Thanks!
I mean i guess its pretty ok. But sometimes it just doesn't have the music I'm looking for.
I downloaded the software onto my laptop to compose my own music and I enjoy that quite a bit. So I decided to purchase the app... HOWEVER apparently the compose section is not available at this time for the app... I paid $1.99 and I can’t even write. I love it on my laptop but I’m very disappointed. 😫
One of the best music apps available on the App Store!
The sound on this app doesn’t work, so I can’t play the scores.
I love this website and use their music constantly but little things don’t work on the app all the time. Lately I can’t add any sheet music to my favorites. I click it but it’s never saved. Frustrating to keep searching for the same music over and over again.
I LOVE Musescore, but the app not so much. Pros: Transposing 😍😍😍 (I know you can do this on PC/Mac but still, it’s much easier to do to be honest) Selecting which instruments to listen to in a full score (Also possible on PC/Mac, but you would need Musescore Pro) Cons: Bad search bar Can’t notate
The app really useful and fun but I regret buying it and I’m mad cuz there is no way to sign up. It won’t accept my username.
I recently decided to teach myself how to play the violin, and I am not willing to pay through the nose for books and sheet music, so this was a great help!
For a paid app that only reads music, this is not very great. It is nice that there is a way to listen to music on your phone, but the synth instruments sound absolutely terrible. All I want is for the app to use the exact same sounds as the computer program, and that isn’t asking a lot.
I purchased the app because I was really impressed with the computer program and I was disappointed to find that “writing is unavailable at this time” otherwise great app but if you want to write, don’t waste your money.
Great app just for transmission tool but it doesn't support for iPhone X.
This app used to work fine until 2 months ago i can’t search up music no more and sometimes the app freezes my phone
I spent at least 45 minutes trying to make an account but the system kept telling me to change my password or my email was not valid. I was not able to get to the music I needed and I was not at all happy with this app. I do not recommend this. I think it is too expensive to buy things that don’t even work.
Completely worthless. Only let’s you play music you wrote on your desktop. Don’t waste your money
This is not a score creation program like the one of a similar name of a Linux version! It really should have another name. I wanted to create scores not download some jokers version of songs. Guess I should have not assumed it was the program that it was by the name. 14 day return policy ? Prolly not - so my bad... Could be useful if you wanted to buy other people's scores.
This company won’t refund me for a subscription that I didn’t want but forgot to cancel after trial period. I contacted them the same day and hour I saw the charge in my bank account. They said they couldn’t do nothing but take my 50 bucks. What a greedy bunch of a...holes. Geez
Overall this is a great app. I like the ability to change the key of a song, that’s cool and it can make a song much more interesting. But I pressed the plus button, the one that implies that you can create a score and was promptly greeted with a message: “The app does not currently support the ability to create scores.” Uh... thats kind of why I bought the app? (Looking back on it, it definitely says you can’t make scores in the app so I guess it’s my fault for not reading it but I’m still salty.)
Just paid for the app and haven’t fully dug into its potential BUT ran into a MAJOR (repeatable/predictable) glitch: 1.). App shuts down any music you may be playing (in iTunes) at the time. Have to restart music. 2.) when doing search for new sheet music (while playing your own music in iTunes) the app terminally locks up and quits. Apparently app does not ‘play well with others.’ :( I wanted to view a piece of music (eg Fur Elise or Minuet in G Maj) and follow along on sheet music. Not possible. Fix this and I’ll gladly change rating.
It’s a pretty flawless app except that the percussion sounds more like a brass instrument then a drum it’s messing me up pretty bad pls fix
It doesnt save the songs to your account, you have to re find all of your songs on another device or if you delete it. Also, some songs other people made suddenly crash musescore, but they usually work fine when I get back on. Finally, the entire app freezes when a timer goes off in clock. So, you lose whatever song you were on or where you were in it. Otherwise, it’s really good for what you can do with it!
Need iPhone X support
I am working on a project to write a score and it’s not able to write it
Very useful app.u can find any kind of sheet musics and chords here👌👍🏼
am learning new songs every day!!
I am getting consistently a corruption in the last bar on scores imported from my scores online. The sequence is, I create a small score on my Mac and upload it. Then download it to Songbook on my iPad. Most of the time, not every time, the D on the base cleft in the last bar is shifted down a full step to C. Other than that, I would give 5 *, and hope someday we can edit on the iPad.
Used for 3 years.best one ever!!!!
I mistakenly thought the MuseScore Songbook app was the same as the score notation program of the same name. I need another social media app like a hole in the head. I have asked the vendor to provide instructions on obtaining a refund of my hard-earned $1.99 but I ain’t holding my breath. Other reviewers here have made much the same complaint, so learn from our mistake and DO NOT BUY THIS APP IF YOU WANT TO CREATE MUSICAL SCORES.
I love this app! I can use it to play on the go, but as a percussionist I do not appreciate that the drum line instruments sound like a trumpet when playing. That is really the only problem with this app everything else is great.
I’ve had this app for a while now, and it proved to be wonderful. The scores play nicely and it is relatively easy to find scores to play. I love to see the community produce lovely scores and such. However, I am not sure if this is an issue with the app or my device, but searching for scores on the community tab is difficult. My phone’s keyboard would pop up but freeze mid-way. The app also crashes due to this issue. I am not sure why anytime I want to search a score, the app freezes mid-way and my phone becomes unresponsive to everything.
App keeps crashing. Fix it.
I think the app does good in showing you he music, but I also want he ability to print out the music, and to be able to edit the music.
i am in need to write a drumline cadence and do not have access to a desktop or laptop. does anyone recommend an app that will allow me to that is free?
It crashes often and during common tasks such as rewinding, making the app not viable for the classroom. The developers claim that this bug was fixed, but it wasn’t. It is slow and requires a lot of processing power , for example when transposing XML. The app promises editing of music notation, but I don’t see anything. The variety of available music is fantastic, but the functionality is a dealbreaker for any professional. I am using the most recent iOS, as of the end of November 2017.
On the website with my free membership I can export score to PDF and print. Now I paid two dollars and I can’t even do that
While I’m always happy to find a way to support the development of open-source, cross-platform software I love with an actual financial contribution, the inability to notate score and no way to import musescore files from google drive have left me feeling that “I want my money back” itch. I can’t use the app at all in its current state! There’s no way for me to open a score. There’s no way for me to start making one. To be clear, I would readily have given a dollar or two to support musescore anyway. However, that only takes the slightest edge off of it for me. I still bought an app that is completely incompatible with my workflow and feels like it’s trapped in 2011. I can’t just not be mad. (Answers to the most obvious questions: Some users don’t have or want an online account. Some, like me, can’t upload one from the PC. It’s 2017 and the iPad Pro could easily be the perfect portable notation tool if this app could work with it. I could go on forever, but 4 paragraphs is already way more than enough for an app store review.)
I was surprised how well it works. Getting your music into the app is a bit clumsy, as you have to email, Dropbox, or web a score to yourself and then transfer it over. You can also upload to your muse score account but the free account is limited to five songs. Getting scores into the app easier would make this a home run. Spend the two bucks and support the amazing free and open desktop development.
Only one problem of my phone wanting to kick me out of it every once in a while. Other than that it is perfect I love how much music I can get on here!
Let me know when you fix the bug that causes it to lock up during searching and I will re-install it.
decent app but freezes a lot. switch to a different app and come back... frozen. alarm goes off and dismiss... frozen. very frustrating.
After this update, I can’t log in or discover music
There is a deceptive pricing scheme in this app. As I understand, the user is only allowed access to 5 personal scores without having to pay additional subscription fees. Scores must be uploaded to the MuseScore server as the app is not designed to reach cloud services like Dropbox and Google Drive. Avoid this app.
Negative: LOTS OF GLITCHES Even more glitches The coding for this app is HORRIBLE It's glitchy When zooming in all of the articulations move out of place It's also glitchy You have the restart the app if your changing the settings It can be glitchy Doesn't have filter settings for popular music Did I mention it was glitchy? It costs money for this glitchy app Positive: Very convenient I don't have to print the music to play it, I just set up my iPad It has a lot of original works, which I love It's a breeding ground of creativity It's the first community that doesn't really have a toxic community Very organized Would I recommend it? Yeah, but if you're on a budget, no It's also glitchy
It took me a few minutes to learn but I found it easier as I went along to input notes and draw from the palettes. This app is fairly intuitive. I enjoyed my first scoring experience and will continue to use Musescore.
I write music and looked drum cadences on the app, but in the app the notes play in a scale and you can’t turn the key signature off so it just plays as horn notes. The notes play properly on the web version.
Can't write music, bad tone quality.
