    On the iOS side, there were several developers that made PDF music readers before the iPad was ever released, like forScore. These PDF readers are geared toward music (although they could be used for any discipline) and have a number of other features such as being able to link music files (mp3s), edit the score, turn pages by swiping left/right or bluetooth foot pedal (Air Turn or PageFlip), metronomes, and other features.

    With the advent of 4:3 larger Android tablets, do you know of any such PDF (i.e. "content self made/provided") music reader apps for Android tablets, or of a Android PDF reader that would at least work?

    I've done a thread search on key words and haven't seen anything, and also looked at the thread of "Optimized for Honeycomb" apps.

    Or, is the wide variety of Android tablets (5 to 12 inches, 4:3 to 16:9) a factor in not releasing a PDF music reader (i.e. wouldn't be functional/usable on all devices).

    I'm really shocked that one of the iOS developers hasn't jumped in to fill this void. It would seem that the Galaxy Tab would make a great music reader.

    Thanks in advance for your feedback and suggestions.

    if I had to guess the reason why any ios devs have not jumped over is because of all the diffent screen sizes. Is usaly stops most devs from coming over to android

    As a music teacher, I'd be all over this, but I think it's going to take a company like MakeMusic or Sibelius to either do something themselves or to push the envelope.

    I found nothing good about your news and admit I am not a computer buff......heres a copy of my reply to MS...

    query problem about licence..........I cannot access forums.... I cannot activate account .....I cannot request activation code because apparently I dont know my e-mail address....I uninstalled free program and downloaded paid program which I cannot use because I cant get wireless connection.........query problem about licence .....reading forums very interesting...............glad I only paid a few dollars which I now consider as written off, likewise the tablet which will be consigned to the scrap heap until a decent program appears.... Sorry I can't put this mail in forum for all to read. Mal R (mardy)
