I would get the pro version but the library is too basic. There is no search function and I can't create set lists. This makes it unsuitable for gigs for me, I can't waste time on stage scrolling through a library of 100+songs. Could you add these functions please? I would absolutely buy the pro version if it had this as it has everything else I need; transposition, viewing individual instrument parts.

This app is really good considering it's free. It has the essential features covered. It has many instruments and allows different volumes for each part. However, the header and notification bar takes up the screen when not playing and the volume screen is a bit clunky (scrolling isn't locked to x and y axis). I've also noticed that the arpeggios are too slow by default. Maybe there's a setting for it. I feel that it also drains battery (not sure). Edit: midi works now.

Has worked well but since most recent update I have not been able to open the dropbox files. After logging in the app goes to 'forte notation' after having briefly tried 'dropbox'. I have confirmed that my login details are correct. I can still login from the dropbox website. Geoff 19 Feb 2020. The latest update has made it work again - excellent, however there is now a new problem! It doesn't go immediately to the folder with the music. The user has to go down the tree to the folder. Not ideal.
