    Default Do You Use a Tablet, Rather than Books?

    How many of you use a tablet of some kind for your music?

    A member of our group started using an iPad rather than books a few months ago. Now I'm using a 10" Kindle. I love it. I use MobileSheetsPro, which is an amazing program that can do so much.

    With 32GB of internal memory and a 32GB micro SD card, I'll never run out of storage. I have mounts/stands for both table and floor.

    I'm new to this, and I'm still learning, so if any of you have tips or suggestions, I'd love to hear them.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    iPad and Set List Maker. But only for the dozen or so songs I have transcribed with MuseScore.
    The other songs are still in the book.

    Using a cheap android tablet and dropbox now. Don't really have a list maker. Will look into it. currently just doing a quick search for the song I want is good enough

    More & more people in my uke groups are going the tablet route. Most are using medium to larger sized tablets. I don't know what programs they are all using. 2 of my 3 groups send out music ahead of time online for upcoming jams, so it seems easy to upload right onto a tablet. I'm not a very tech savvy person, so I'd be reluctant to try the tablet method. Paper is easy, I can tuck it into my music stand case, and I can make quick changes & notes on it as we play. But my office is covered in stacks of paper music & binders. I need a better organization system for the paper, or I need to get hip and join the "cool kids" with the tablets.

    Did you use MuseScore on your iPad? I have tried other apps without much satisfaction.

    I have a 9.7 iPad. I have downloaded tabs and ebooks, but find the print rather small. I haven’t tried to print from my iPad, cannot plug into the printer or thru my laptop, but then I haven’t bought a lightning connection.

    I use a mixture of everything. Have some books and also have onsong and Mobilesheets installed on my iPad / cheapo tablet.
    Also occasionally use sheet music.

    My go to and favourite is probably onsong on my iPad.

    I use a Nook 7 and pdf's of the songs that are stored on a SD card.

    I have several pdf's downloaded from this forum, the Welti songbooks etc. I also scan pages from songbooks I own and upload. Keeps me from lugging books around.

    The tablet also helps when I am camping and have no WiFi or cell coverage but want to play a song.
