MGS Development has released an update to its forScore app for reading and storing musical scores on the iPad, adding several UI improvements and support for new annotation and metadata features. forScore is a musical score reader that allows iPad users to take their sheet music with them in PDF format, and includes such features as an audible and visual metronome, the ability to make on-screen annotations, easily navigate through pages and associate scores with tracks in the iPad music library. forScore 1.5 adds a number of new features including pinch-to-zoom, the ability to auto-turn sequential pages using the metronome, set additional metadata for rating, difficulty and genre, adjust annotation brush sizes and stamp annotations for commonly-used symbols. Users can also now create and e-mail forScore-specific files that include all metadata, annotations and links for sharing with other forScore users. Other improvements include built-in database backup and restore capability, a redesigned integrated Setlist Builder with submenu search and batch editing capabilities. forScore 1.5 is available from the App Store for $5 and is a free update for current users.

I am not a developer, but the other excellent PDF sheet music reader is UnrealBook.  Both are $4.99, and if you’re a musician, you should probably invest in both programs.
