KeyScore is a full-featured digital sheet music app and is an amazing tool for any musician from novice students to professionals. The app provides a wealth of features to let you scan, import, annotate, organize and play all your music from your iPad. With KeyScore's intelligent features you get amazing functionality including automatic page turning, a music-aware camera-based scanner, smart audio playback and more. Key Score comes with some music scores built in so you can instantly try it out! And then, easily add your own music!

*** Automatic Page Turning ***
Automatic page turning and tracking is a novel feature KeyScore offers to musicians and of particular use to pianists. KeyScore can extract musical information from a Score and create an audio model. When tracking is enabled, the audio model is consulted to allow the app to track your playing. As you reach the bottom of a page, part of the next page will be shown. When you reach the top of the page, the page turn completes. You can keep playing with both hands without visual interruption. No more need for a page turner or bluetooth foot pedal!

*** Scan and Edit ***
- Use the camera scanner feature to convert your physical sheet music.
- Deskewing and uncurling of the photo handles problematic images typical from a music book.
- Automatic background detection can correct shadows.
- Automatic staff detection and margin size settings

*** Audio and Video Tools ***
- Recording & Playback: General purpose recording and play-back tool and enables KeyScore to record your playing anytime you use tracking mode. Since KeyScore can read and understand the written music, it lets you play back from anywhere in the score just by tapping the measure you’re interested in.
- Import Audio: Import external audio, which may be a professional recording. Like with your own recordings, KeyScore aligns the written music with the audio allowing you to easily listen to just a measure, a line or the whole recording and compare between multiple recordings.
- Video Export: Create and share movies of your playing while the written music is displayed
