This app does what I need, but I really wish I could see more than one page at a time. There is plenty of space on my screen to see at least 2, if not 3 pages at a time, yet there's all this extra space on each side of the one page when in "full screen" mode...
I downloaded the app yesterday, and today I was having problems I've never had before. I use a Mac Book Pro, and the key board and track pad kept freezing. When I'd try to restart the computer, it wouldn't restart normally. Finally once I was able to get back on, I had the suspicion it was the new app. Since deleting it, I have had no problems.
Up until now, I've kept a tattered binder of printed sheet music with me (which often gets lost between lessons). I love how easy it is to organize my music and rehearse outside of lessons. Because I don't play the piano, the instrumental playback with tempo options is a game changer for me! Big fan!
Editing my previous review. Restarted my iPad this morning, and purchasing worked fine (perhaps the I.T. Crowd solution would have fixed it last night). Correcting my previous statement: purchasing sheet music is/was routed through the app store. Now that it’s working, I’m happy to give a much higher rating. It still used to be a five. The only reason that I’m giving it a 4 is that during my troubleshooting, I couldn't figure out how to access my account details from the app. I had to go back to my MacBook and access the website. I’d prefer to be able to have the same functions available from device to desktop and website, so that wherever I’m working, I can take care of what needs to be done. Another UX note: When purhasing music, only the first page is available to view. I understand why they’ve done it this way, but I’d like to check the accuracy of some passages or see how the transriber handled the arrangement before purchasing. I’ve managed to make all my purchases work, though. Leaving my previous review below for reference. ---------- Used the app for several weeks, then something broke. It might have been that I upgraded the app(?). I can’t buy sheet music anymore. Pretty sure I was using PayPal previously. Saw a notice that the app now accepts ApplePay. Activated a card on ApplePay. Still no good. The core competence of the app should be to purchase and download music, and here I am trying to figure out how to give the company my money. Also, the iOS app offers confusing feedback as to whether I’m a Pro member. I see the Pro member price, but there’s a button prompting me to learn more about being a Pro member—this while I’m logged in (I logged out and logged back in, too). Also I can not seem to be able to access my account information within the iOS app. Perhaps I can, but a reasonable rule of UX/UI is that if you can’t find it, you can’t do it. I completed a service request on my iPad, tapped the Submit button, and the screen went blank—no confirmation that my request was submitted. No email yet that it was submitted. Musicnotes, if you can get this to work, great. I’m open-minded. Otherwise, we need to discuss refunding or pro-rating my Pro membership fee for the month. If the core function can't be worked out in the next few days, I’ll have to find another service.
Just downloaded the app. It only allows you to SIGN IN but NOT create account so you can sign in!!! What a joke. A worthless app if you can’t sgin in.
I was told that in the IOS app I would see $1 off on prices, however the price for the piece I was buying was $2 higher in the store than on the website. La La Land Suite
As of October 15th 2019 this app has absolutely no issues whatsoever. I can open all my music, zoom in and out, etc. Perfect.
Incredibly dissapointing playback features. I don’t understand how this wasn’t a top priority when developing the app. You cannot select what note/measure to start playback from, nor can you loop a section, alter tempo, or anything else that would seem common sense to include. I can’t imagine that if you have a program that can read the MIDI from the sheet music it would be all that difficult to include these features. Sheetmusicdirect.com has these features built into their website. I think I’ll be getting more of my sheet music from them from now on simply for this reason. You guys need to get on this problem ASAP. Otherwise, what’s the point in donwloading this “player?”
initally, I looked at the 2.5 star rating and almost took a pass. I downloaded one song to check it out and was not disappointed. Within, 5 minutes I had the song I needed and was easily able to transpose it into a brighter key. I'm not sure what everyone elses problem was but I had no problem with my Mac. I may look at going with the Pro option after I look at the library of available meaterial. Very happy so far!
Everything I downloaded for free shows up but nothing I paid for is showing up. And with the minimal controls, theres nothing I can do about it. This app is completely useless. I've been using music notes since I was very young, before I had to pay extra for PDF printing and when the sheet music was like $3 (AKA- before this company got greedy and stingy with printing / formatting / etc). I still use it because they have everything and its composed nicely. I'm disappointed this company, website and app, have seemed to go downhill.
