    I love listening to music on mobile, and this app Sheet Music Scanner has often been on the top of the music field on the App Store. It's been a while since the app itself was released, but the app has been continually updated so far. It had performance above expectations. What I like most about this app is that I can load sheet music through the cloud storage and tune my favorite songs myself. I just would like to let you know that there are such cool music apps. If you are interested, check out the app store ratings of this app and introductions! ;)

    If you are waiting for the Android (Google Play) version, it will be released in a few months. Stay tuned! :)

    I've tried this app.

    Though I couldn't make this app generate sound by YouTube's note sheets videos' screenshots sometimes, however once it detected notes, it works great!

    I wish this app to make possible scanning notes higher accuracy.

    Fun app for sure.
