[UPDATE 9/5/12: I’ve posted a video tutorial that takes you step-by-step through the process of downloading and importing extra forScore stamps.]
If you use the forScore iPad app for reading and annotating music, you can download and import additional stamps for marking your music. This website has several sets of downloadable forScore stamps including arrows, music notation symbols in different colors, and “watch the conductor” eyeglasses. Of particular interest to singers: the website also has stamps for breath marks and IPA symbols for lyric diction.
I like using stamps in forScore because I can make legible markings more quickly. E.g., if I try to write in a comma/breath mark with a stylus or my finger, it takes me about five tries before it looks like something other than a random squiggle.
For instructions on how to import stamps into forScore, check out their user guide.
