App Reviews


    By Annonymous😏
    Before this update the app was AMAZING and I loved it to death. I’m an advanced pianist and I use this app every day. I take it on the go wherever there’s a piano. This means there usually wasn’t WiFi available so I downloaded the music to my songbook (thanks to the $2.99 one time purchase which is very efficient and blessed 10/10). I would proudly say I used MuseScore whenever someone asked where I got my sheet music. It was amazing and was my favorite app. I’m sorry, but this new update is worse than ever, the format is intimidating and bland and now you guys are just pulling even more money from people’s pockets. The notes are automatically zoomed out and tiny and it’s gonna be annoying to keep zooming in on the notes every time I open a piece of music. The quality itself just downgraded so badly I feel like I’m using iOS 6 and I’m taken back to the era of iPhone 4’s. I can’t download music to my songbook without the subscription- worse yet, more than half the songs downloaded to my songbook disappeared. 6.99 subscription every month? Come on, you’re kidding yourselves. I know you need to make some profit but subscriptions draw people away. Monthly or annual payments? What a shame. Please take it back to the previous system and formatting. It was PERFECT and was working GREAT before. There was absolutely no need to update this. Otherwise, I’m very upset and disappointed with the app I once adored. Please take this into consideration and fix it.
  • Fantastic!

    By Bubbymg
    Muse score is basically the best app I've ever used to find music for different instruments. The ability to find music for different instruments makes it easy to put together little bands that can play together. The transposing button is awesome so you can change it to whatever key you want! The play button allows you to listen to how the score is supposed to be played giving you a place to start and sort of your own little teacher. You also have the option to print off scores, it's a little confusing, but worth the struggle. And the ability to write your own scores is awesome! They have an application that you can write music on and share with everyone!All in all, an awesome platform for writing and finding music!
  • Down grade from previous version

    By scooterdoodle
    This version, for me at least and I’ve been using it for a few years, is a serious downgrade. Sorry, I’m usually easy to please, but I’ve notated practice books that I can play from as I’m accustomed to. This version imported my Treble clef and Bass clef as piano music (one instrument), even though I didn’t join the 2 staffs. Now I can’t isolate the 2 clefs as independent parts. I was also able to import directly from DropBox, no more. The next issue I have is I’m not seeing any documentation to get my music into the My Music page, scores that I export from Files go into Songbook. I wouldn’t expect that. It’s usable, but not intuitive. Could there be a selection in Settings to establish a preferred print size? I can’t easily read the small notation and I have a few that I normally play from. For now I change them individually, but I have a few and planned on adding more.
  • Percussion sound fonts are broken

    By Unclesusan21
    I’ve been using musescore on my MacBook since 2014 I think, and it’s an amazing open source solution to music notation. The iPhone app however, not so much. I can’t find a way to start a new score which isn’t a huge problem for me because the main reason I bought this app is so I could play them back to my professors without just opening the mobile website. This works great for most scores I have but all of them with percussion tracks (specifically stand tunes that I am trying to get accepted into our rotation at my college) play as if they’re a synth keyboard of some kind, and of course the sounds that it make are horribly out of key. I’m unsure if there’s a way to change the sound font in the app like you can on the desktop and Mac applications but it’s a big problem I hope is updated.
  • Just Because It’s Now Free Doesn’t Mean You Have To Go OUT OF YOUR WAY To Make It Worse

    By Motherlyy
    While I’m grateful that the app is now free, everything about the recent big update is incredibly flawed, much more so than the older one. The sounds have significantly decreased in quality (I actually really enjoyed the sound of the French horn but now it seems to always hit some random out of tune note before every single pitch, it drives me nuts), selecting certain things are hard (and my phone is relatively sensitive so this is not a phone issue), and the app crashes way quicker than before. It used to only crash for me when a song with a lot of parts was played, and now it seems to crash randomly. The only two improvements I’ve seen so far is 1. The saxes seem way less out of tune than before and 2. The dashboard is easier to handle now. Really disappointed, and I might just use your PC version until this is fixed.
  • Non-downloadable/printable music

    By Kitty cat lover101
    I don’t know if this is just happening to me or everyone but if you don’t pay for the pro version you can’t download the music. All of the options to download or save are in the pro version. Even if you try to share it to your folders, on iPhone, or share any where else, it just shares/saves as a link to the music. So I say this app useless because if you go to the website you can download the music you want without any problems. I’m sure if you pay the $50 a year or $7 a month this app is great, but I’m not that serious of a musician and would like to keep my spending on sheet music to a minimum. I know my review is only about that feature, but that’s all I really use it for other than occasionally listening to the price before downloading and printing it.
  • Super Cool!

    By Allen's Matchmaker Tyllen Fan
    Alright! With this app, your phone isn't going to turn off on you as you play your instrument! Finally! My phone often thinks I'm no longer using it when I don't press it every five minutes. So! This definitely solved my small dilemma. Another cool thing is that you can switch between transpositions, from A major to C major or any other major. (If my theory is wrong—it's probably cause I didn't study it that much). ( ;∀;) Though.... You can't print straight from this app. You'll have to login on the website, download the sheet as a PDF, then print it from there.
  • I’m happy with this app again!

    By jpenni47
    So there was some glitch that removed all my favorited songs and I thought deleting the app and redownloading it would’ve worked but it just got rid of everything in my songbook. The app constantly crashed and I was just unhappy with it. Seeing that they updated it I tried it out again and my favorites are back and I assume it won’t crash constantly anymore but even if it does, I feel like they’ll hear me and fix it. Really glad they’ve done this!
  • Disappointed

    By Kusunokima
    While I’m always happy to find a way to support the development of open-source, cross-platform software I love with an actual financial contribution, the inability to notate score and no way to import musescore files from google drive have left me feeling that “I want my money back” itch. I can’t use the app at all in its current state! There’s no way for me to open a score. There’s no way for me to start making one. To be clear, I would readily have given a dollar or two to support musescore anyway. However, that only takes the slightest edge off of it for me. I still bought an app that is completely incompatible with my workflow and feels like it’s trapped in 2011. I can’t just not be mad. (Answers to the most obvious questions: Some users don’t have or want an online account. Some, like me, can’t upload one from the PC. It’s 2017 and the iPad Pro could easily be the perfect portable notation tool if this app could work with it. I could go on forever, but 4 paragraphs is already way more than enough for an app store review.)
  • Percussion sounds are wrong

    By MagmaMan15
    Like some of the other reviews mentioned, the drum sounds are played like they’re on a synth keyboard making it practically impossible to listen to. I downloaded this app for use with marching snare and with brass parts. With these sound issues, I have given up trying to use it for percussion, but the brass parts sound fine. You can also only playback to the beginning of the music, which is a limiting factor. This app is ok for some basic sheet musics searches but unless these problems are fixed, I don’t think this is a particularly useful tool, especially for percussionists.
