Probably worth it The camera is difficult to focus properly, and its pretty picky when it comes to lighting. Also, it cant read more than 2 or 3 measures because you have to be so close to the page. There is no save feature and it cannot read tied notes. It does have a tempo control though which is nice. If you willing to work with the little annoyances the app isnt bad.

Can't save!?! This application would be worth it if one could save and string together the phrases. Also, it would be nice to be able to crop the size of the image so that the player wouldn't play treble clef and then base clef.
