Lightbulb Forscore or Unrealbook for Android

With the explosion of Android tablets recently I know many musicians are flocking to these types of apps to make their gigs easier. If there were a music reading app similar to the two mentioned in the title musicians would be able to stick with Android instead of having to go the iPad2 route.

Default Agreed

I agree. I would LOVE to see an Unrealbook or ForScore type application for Android. I would purchase many copies immediately. I can get a larger Android based tablet for much less money than an iPad. I'm planning to outfit my entire band with them. I'll wait for Android though since the iPad is too small and too expensive.

ForScore's website says they are looking at an Android version but are presently focusing on iPad only until there's a clear market. I, too, would prefer to use Android tablets, and I am holding out waiting for ForScore, RealBook, etc. to port over.

Has anybody tried MobileSheets? It doesn't have a notation feature yet, but they say it's coming.

Just in case anyone sees this, mobilesheets is awesome for android. Chord sheets are amazing. You can make setlists. It will open .pdfs and some picture files. It will do other sheet music as well. As with Forscore, big files can be slow. But it is definitely worth it for android.
I know Im late on this, but like i said, just in case someone sees this, Mobilesheets its great.

dumaslr - with MobileSheets can you bring in PDFs of lyrics? Can you also sort songs, PDFs by title and artist?

I haven't used my MobileSheets for a while, but PDF import is no problem. But if you are looking for the best Android music reader I can recommend checking out the Fakebook app. Reads PDF (single sheets and huge collections), indexes these automatically, but also a lot of other formats like Chordpro and ABC. Also comes with something like 1000 jazz standards (chords only), transpose feature works great.

I bought it for $1.99, so it's a bargain IMHO.
