Intelligent Digital Music Score Book: CATNIP

We have developed a digital, intelligent music score book on tablet computers, called CATNIP, to fulfil the need for advanced applications for music professionals. CATNIP has a built-in access to the open and huge Petrucci sheet music library with an intuitive search functionality. The selected scores can be locally saved together with optional personal remarks to the score. CATNIP allows the musicians to synchronize several devices so that one device masters the others to always show an associated view on their device; this view may differ from the master's one. To enhance the user experience, we have a built-in Spotify interface for related audio playback. Moreover, we are working on including automatic synchronization in the application.
