The feature for adding annotations by hand needs improvement. It's often cumbersome or even impossible to write in fingerings or other remarks without the text being cut off, and there is no erase feature (that I can find). Otherwise, the app is great for downloading and reading scores and carrying around my library on my tablet.

Dear Brandon Murray, thank you very much for your very kind review! We will keep working on improving the annotation modus of the Android version of our app. And in particular we are trying to add an erasing feature as soon as possible.

Blurry/jagged PDFs. Scans from my phone of print editions look better. Can't zoom in app. This matters if you have vision issues. Can't just buy a score, you buy credits in blocks, so you have to buy more than you use. Having access to all of Henle is great, and prices seem reasonable.

Dear Roger Labbe, we are sorry for the inconvenience! We introduced the credit system so that we could only charge small amounts for short pieces. At the moment you can't zoom into a score but we are working on improvements here! When PDFs look blurry this often has technical reasons. Please contact us directly at app-user-support@henle.de!

I really want to like this app. It has the full collection of henle's library and has many nice features. However, the feature I care about most is the ability to download pdfs, and the app is really disappointing in this regard. All pdf downloads via the app are heavily rasterized instead of vectorized, and this completely offsets the nice typesetting henle is known for. This would easily be a 5 star app for me if they fixed this (or let us download our collection via web browser)

Dear K C, thank you very much for your review! Yes, on the Android version the quality of PDF exports and prints is not as good as we want it to be. This has technical reasons as our app itself doesn't use the PDF format and PDFs have to be "reconstructed". For more information please contact us at app-user-support@henle.de
