About iPad digital sheet music platform “piaScore”
The iPad digital music sheet viewer “piaScore HD” is designed around the concept of putting the world’s music at your fingertips through an easy-to-use musical sheet viewing, managing, and sharing application. The realization of this handy practice tool came with its release in December 2010 in the iTunes Store, claiming the number one download spot in the iPad / music / free app category.
The free “piaScore HD” iPad app not only allows viewing of music sheets, but also allows a performer to turn page by shaking a head or hands in front of iPad, purchase a digital music sheet and notations to be added during practice and lessons. And with the free “piaScoreAir” iPhone app, users can remotely move from page to page on piaScore. Features including an ultra-realistic “display mode” give users the feeling of reading actual paper sheets, while proprietary technology brings world-class page display speed suited to the needs of real performers.
These merits won “piaScore” Distinguished Honoree recognition in the International Business Awards’ consumer entertainment/IT category. piaScore Web site: piascore.com
