Need help with Orpheus? You’re in the right place!

Version 3.1.6 – August 2020

Version 3.1.6 Changelog

  • New: optimised for Chromebook
  • Bug fix: for dark mode
  • Bug fix: full screen mode now persists when turning between charts in a set list
  • Improved: Set List order (recent at the top)
  • Removed Drive integration due to deprecation of necessary Google APIs


This release includes several minor fixes and enhancements to improve experience.  There is one major new feature…the app is now optimised for Chromebook – good news for users looking at large size tablets. Google makes several detachable / convertible Chromebooks of 12″ and 14″ – lovely big screens for sheet music with a very affordable price tag. ?

In less good news, I’ve had to remove the Google Drive integration from the app. Google deprecated an API, making it no longer possible to fetch data in a way that is feasible for the use-case. Several workarounds were explored, but results were unsatisfactory – clunky with horribly slow loading. On balance, I decided it best to remove the Google Drive integration entirely, rather than set users up for a frustrating experience. To those who would have liked to sync a Drive folder with Orpheus, apologies, and thank you for your understanding. ?

Maeve Lander is a software developer by day, trumpeter and arranger by night. She created Orpheus ~8 years ago, when Android was first born. It has gone through iteration over the years, but has always held true to the original vision; a minimalist sheet music reader that just does one thing, really well.
