Mobilesheets or Forscore
#1
Wink 
I'm about to purchase my first tablet. I'm going to use it for storing music and at the piano as an accompanist. Which way should I go: Android with Mobilesheets or iPad with ForScore. Any comments will be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

It really depends what your goals are, and how much you want to spend. In a lot of ways, it's really more about what platform/operating system you prefer: iOS or Android. I don't like the tightly controlled model that Apple uses, and Android works best for me as a user. You will have way more options with Android devices (tablets anywhere from 7" to 24"), and in many cases, it will be cheaper. There are a lot of factors in comparing iOS versus Android.

As far as apps go, ForScore has been in development longer than MobileSheets with a full team of developers. ForScore currently has more features than MobileSheets, and it's a very polished app. I've drawn a lot of inspiration from ForScore, and if I was an iPad user, it would be my app of choice.

Having said that, I have big plans for MobileSheets this year. I'm hoping to close the gap on features and provide some unique capabilities to set MobileSheets apart. I really want to take advantage of the larger Android displays that are coming out, as I think viewing scores on a 13" or larger tablet is definitely the way to go.

Hopefully that helps a little with the choice you have to make. If you choose Android, rest assured that I will be constantly improving the app.

You can't beat MobileSheets. Mike, the Zuber guy, is amazingly responsive to any problems that may arise and is always adding nice new features.

You can't go wrong with either. Mobilesheets might have the "new guy" rep, but as jagny42 mentions, Mike is amazing with updates and troubleshooting.

I wish there's a piano keyboard included in this application, in this way we can easily review our music sheet/score, don't need to switch application when reviewing..Big Grin

That's definitely on my list of things to do, but it's going to be awhile until I can start working on it.
