THE CHALLENGES: The solution has to be universal and support external Bluetooth devices that turn digital sheet pages.

Sheet Music Direct’s old app was not updated in a timely manner and hence was not working as expected across iOS devices. The solution also connects to the external Bluetooth pedal for turning the music sheets in the iPad for musicians to stay in sync with the measures and phrases. The client came to Blue Whale to perform app update to make it compatible with the latest iOS and restore the user experience without losing any functionalities. Providing a fresh look was crucial too.
