At some point there will probably be an iGigBook Mobile for Android but the focus right now is on larger screens.

There are several 6" tablets out there. Obviously .3 inches is not going to be a difference user experience. Perhaps you have the ability to expand compatibility check to some phablets like the Galaxy Note 4 and some others that won't require modification to the app and allow easy expansion of the potential userbase. If/when you do that I would be a willing participant if you are looking for testers, and an eager purchaser if it becomes available.

Point of clarification:

iGigBook Mobile runs on an iPhone/iPod and is designed for the smaller size of a phone screen and not created to be used as a gigging tool but more of a reference tool. It does not contain key performance features such as score navigation, full featured set list manager, annotations, MIDI send.

iGigBook runs on the iPad and Android tablets and is designed to be used as a gigging tool.

iGigBook Mobile is not available for Android phones.

Hi Phil,
I have been using IGigBook for years now, and it is still as fantastic as ever. My extensive music book collection has been mothballed. Your system on my Ipad 2 has been virtually bullet proof. I use it mainly with my Yamaha Tyros 2 keyboard, and occasionally with a guitar. I use to use the IPad on my keyboard music rest, but now I've moved it closer for reading, using the Ipad small ceramic stand. It has a small footprint and fits perfectly and securely on the keyboard, plus it is plugged in for charging. I am thinking about upgrading to the Galaxy Pro 12.2 for even better viewing (older eyes), because of the extra size. Will IGigbook work on this tablet, and do you know if the display on this tablet is as good as on the IPad?

I am glad that some of the music book industry is finally getting with the program, and they are finally recognizing that they need to repackage their music in a format compatible with Igigbook, albeit with older technology (CDs). The industry is missing a huge opportunity in not partnering with you. My other comment is that I would love to see the new keyboards get out of the business of including a screen, and instead include connections and compatibility with tablets. I predict that it will happen eventually. Anyway, I have much respect for the job you did with Igigbook, and I am very much impressed at how it has continually evolved and improved over the years.
Well done!!!

Thanks Don!

I'm currently using a Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 with iGigBook but the tablet I'm using is running Android 5/Lollipop via a Cyanogenmod ROM and it works well and looks great, big difference from the smaller screen of the iPad. I don't know when Samsung will get around to updating the ROM for the Tap Pro 12.2 but it may be soon since the update for the Note 12.2 is currently out.

Changing out the operating system is a little outside of my comfort zone. Will IgigBook run on the existing Galaxy Pro Tab 12.2?

It's not the device, it's the operating system, if your tablet isn't running Android 5/Lollipop, iGigBook will not be available for it.

I purchased the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 and installed Lollipop. Two questions: is it possible to clone the Igigbook data from my IPAD and bring it across, or do I start from scratch with the Galaxy; and, do I need to purchase amother copy of Igigbook for the new tablet? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
