Episode 167 – forScore 14 with Justin Bianco

Justin Bianco is the creator of forScore; a sheet music reading app for iPad, iPhone, and the Mac.

Version 14 is now available. After a decade of evolution the metadata panel and tuner have been completely replaced, rewritten from scratch to be more flexible, modern, and powerful. Apple Pencil hover detection supercharges the annotation experience, secondary windows get far more capable, and forScore sports a brand new icon with several alternatives and older versions. With forScore Pro you can do even more like wink to turn pages, and you can now try out Pro features with a 30-day pass that doesn’t auto-renew. We dive into all of these updates and more in this episode.
