My singer colleague Adrienne P. posted some Facebook comments about her Android tablet which she graciously allowed me to quote here.
I use an Android tablet (Acer Iconia Tab A500) running ezPDF Reader, Pro Version. It was about $200 cheaper [than an iPad]. ezPDF Reader is not quite as music-centric as forScore, but it works for what I need to do. After a couple of rehearsals, I had it down to a science. I definitely recommend finding a tablet whose display is the 4:3 ratio, instead of [16:10] like mine is. The 4:3 is a little closer to paper dimensions, so you maximize your readable display. All in all I’m happy with my Android and the freedoms it offers, but for the technophobic, the iPad is probably a better choice if you can afford it.
Thanks for your insights, Adrienne!
