Due to another blog, iPad and Technology in Music Education, I learned that Avid Scorch is now available for the iPad at $4.99. Scorch is the non-composing viewer of Sibelius files, although the iPad apps does a number of other things such as transposition, playback, and so on.
I’m not a Sibelius user, and at the cost of $219, or Sibelius plus PhotoScore for $449, not to mention the Recordare conversion Dolet for $199.95, I’m probably not going to become one (I do wish I had done the $99 competitive upgrade some years ago when it was offered). But I do give Avid/Sibelius kudos for entering the iPad market before other companies.
Using the words of Paul Shimmons from his post (referenced above):
If you own Sibelius this is a no-brainer! Go buy it NOW!
