Newzik is a new sheet music reader with collaborative features, and a hell of a lot of other features besides!
Newzik iTunes Description:
Newzik is the best app for musicians who want to read and manage their sheet music on their iPad or iPhone. To be ahead of the curve with the smartest sheet music reader that handles most standard formats (PDF, MusicXML, …), download Newzik now and discover all our features!
You will easily import all your scores into your iPad and organize them into playlists. In addition to supporting PDF or .txt files, Newzik is the best MusicXML reader. This format lets you customize your scores with incredible flexibility (smart zoom, 1-click transposition, parts selection, etc.). Unlike PDFs, your scores will be dynamic and alive.
You can also enjoy our homemade forum to share with the community.
Once your scores are in your library, you will annotate them with pencils, highlighters and musical notation stamps. Don’t forget to experience the new iPencil on an iPad Pro!
Because music is namely a matter of collaboration and teamwork, we developed two tailor-made features for music bands and orchestras.
- Collaborative Rehearsal - Thanks to the Collaborative Playlists© feature, share a playlist with your band. Each member will be able to add titles, create his own versions of any title, make annotations, and follow other member’s moves in real time! In short, this could be defined as the “Google Doc of Setlists”.
- Connected Performance - Thanks to the Band Mode©, connect iPads and/or iPhones together and synchronize page turn and title change on every device.
