We are excited to announce that The Portland Collection: Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 are now available as IOS apps! (Development of the app for The Portland Collection: Vol. 3 is underway.)These apps include clearly readable notation for all of the tunes in the hard-copy books and contain all of the supplemental information found in the books. They also have search and organizational capacities that are not possible in the hard-copy books. We thank Transported Productions for developing these apps as well as the upcoming Portland Collection 3 app.

App Features

  • Quickly display any tune in The Portland Collection tune books through the Search mechanism (search can be by tune title, book page number, key signature and/or meter).
  • Learn more about each tune through the Information feature, which displays the Note on the Tune while the tune itself is visible.
  • Create portfolios of tunes (Events) specific to your separate music occasions. These events can be shared via AirDrop, email, and file-sharing apps.
    Add your own tune files to the apps through the iTunes sharing feature.
  • Combine the tunes in the two Portland Collection (and other) apps and organize the separate tunes into medleys via the TuneLibrarian app
  • Read detailed instructions, which are also available in a downloadable in pdf format.
