Breaking news!! MobileSheets, the PDF music reader app for Android, has just released version 3.5 with annotation. As far as I know, this is the first Android PDF app that is specifically for reading sheet music and has support for annotation.
I’ve played with it just a little bit, but so far I see a freehand drawing tool, shapes, text annotations, highlighter, and stamps.
Yes, I know there are a bazillion PDF music readers for iOS and that Android still has lots of catching up to do, but I’m excited to see MobileSheets reach this significant milestone and I’m all for healthy competition and lots of options in the music-reading app/tablet market!
