Congratulations to Daniel and team first of all on the launch! It’s a little surreal that both Dorico and Sibelius come out with an app for iPad within days of each other … something tells me these two companies are keeping each other on their toes! Which is always a good thing for the end users.
Question: I don’t know anything about Apple products, and I don’t have an iPad.
- What are the minimum technical requirements to run the app smoothly?
- Will it run on a previous generation iPad? How far back?
- Is the pencil recommended, does it help with the workflow in any meaningful way?
- Do I need the elicenser plugged into the iPad? Is that even possible?
I spent a good deal of money on a Surface Pro a few years back, and while it is a very cool product, I really haven’t used it a lot. Battery life is poor (and the battery cannot be replaced), I never got the hang of StaffPad, and frankly Sibelius and Dorico run better on a regular laptop with a larger screen and a proper keypad.
