    Your phone can sight read sheet music using Music OCR. "SnapNPlay music" allows you to take a picture of sheet music and play it back. It is true sheet music reader designed for students. Snap a picture of sheet music and watch the notes light up in time as you hear the music played back to you. Select an instrument to watch it play the notes in time to the music. Choose between piano, recorder, trumpet, guitar, violin, viola, cello, and bass. Watch the positions on the instrument light up and learn to play with ease!

    For optimal results hold your camera as close as possible to the line of sheet music. Do not include clef, key signature nor time signature in snap. When holding the camera too far away, it doesn't work as well.

    The workflow:
    Snap a line of sheet music. Fit the music in the rectangle and keep it steady. DO NOT include Key and Clef symbols in the picture. Select the Key and Clef. Edit the music. SnapNPlay will detect most notes and rhythms, but you will have to analyze and correct the music. Play the music. Learn the tune. Select an instrument. Save the snap. Snap the next it. Snap some it. Then you can combine snaps that you saved and hear an entire tune played while watching the notes light up in time. Adjust the tempo or transpose the tune. Sing it, play it on your fiddle, recorder, trumpet, viola, cello, bass, guitar or piano.

    Currently the SnapNPlay algorithm only tries to detect notes, their length and accidentals. It does not try to parse triplets, rests, or grace notes. It does a great job at helping you learn a tune and learning to read sheet music. Just spend a few minutes snapping and learning. After you learn the tune, you will always be able to play it!

    This app is fantastic, but ONLY if you have music reading ability already. It really saves my behind in learning parts for church praise team and choir. However, the notes are often slightly wrong, so you need to know enough about reading music to edit. It works best for those who can read music, but need to strengthen sight reading

    I have been attempting to use this app for over an hour. It has NOT WORKED CORRECTLY EVEN ONCE. I have experienced a 100% crash rate. EVERY SINGLE time I submit my music sample to be read it crashes. Will be receiving a refund and deleting this.

    This app needs to be updated to work on the Nexus 5. The image is flipped upsidedown no matter how I orient my camera. This is a known issue for the Nexus 5.

    Needs a lot of work. Thought the Treble Clef was a grouping of notes. Missed 90% of the actual notes.

    It treated the clef and sharp symbols as notes, didn't play any of the minims or semibreves, and the sharps were played as naturals. So basically the tune was not recognisable.
