I’ve received some questions lately about what’s new in MobileSheetsPro and how it’s different than the original product. Let me start by saying that MobileSheetsPro is not just an update to the original MobileSheets: it is a completely different application. While some elements look the same, MobileSheetsPro was redesigned from the ground up, making it faster, more intuitive and more powerful than the original. Here are some of new the features:
- Multiple display modes including a two page display, half page turns in portrait, and vertical scrolling. The default single page view now has proper scrolling animations when turning pages.
- Automatic cropping along with a manual cropping editor for fine tuning (file is not modified by cropping)
- Support for rotating any file types (file is not modified by rotating)
- Support for text and chord pro files, including support for transposing
- Support for up to four pedals. Unlike the original MS, almost any device can now be supported
- Automatic scrolling now works really well. I’ve added tons of options to control the scrolling. When paired with the vertical scrolling mode, it’s a great experience.
- Support for up to 20 fields with options to disable the fields you don’t use. You can also control the formatting of song titles on the library screen
- A new dark theme
- Support for MIDI commands with integration for KORG keyboards
- A new custom audio player that is much easier to use and looks much better. It also supports a-b looping to repeat sections of a track
- Performance improvements over the whole app and a lot of polish
- Support for page ordering so that you can define whatever order you want with repeats. For example, you can specify 1-3, 1-2, 4, 5, and the five page file would be shown as 7 pages in MobileSheetsPro, and you could turn through the pages in that order.
- A much improved group/setlist editor that supports drag & drop for ordering. I also added multiple sorting modes for songs and setlists.
- Sharing and exporting features so that you can easily send songs or setlists to others
- Tons of improvements to the annotations editor
- New metronome visual modes and improvements to performance
- A new quick action bar that makes it really fast to access features without needing to bring up the overlay
While this is not an exhaustive list (for that you’ll have to read the manual), it provides an overview of some of the important new features that aren’t present in the original. I truly believe that anyone who tries MobileSheetsPro will not want to go back to the original.
