Can I photograph a whole page of sheet music at a time?

Yes, in portrait orientation you can easily photograph any page of sheet music.

Can I use PlayScore to process any image of music?

Yes, save any JPG or TIF in your images folder and load the image into PlayScore as normal. To convert PDF scores on Android (for example from a free music site) use one of the free PDF to JPG conversion apps available on the Play Store. This will create one JPG image for each page of the PDF which can then be processed by PlayScore just like any other image.

Will PlayScore work for full score as well as piano music and songs?

Yes, but the more staffs there are the harder it is to get a good picture. PlayScore works well using the device camera for music up to four or five staffs. But in difficult cases you can always import a picture captured using a scanner.
