Default Best software to display music on a mounted cell phone?

I purchased a phone mount for my pipes, so that I can read the pipe music displayed on my cell phone.

I have a couple of questions regarding the best way to load the music into my cell phone. What format is the best to use for the music?

I've found jpgs seem to work well because you can fiddle with and change the size of the music when it's displayed. Is there a better format?

2nd question: What software is best to display the music? I'm experimenting with using the camera ap in my phone and calling up saved jpgs.

Is there a better format to use rather than the phone's camera? Thanks.

Since I generate my own music and export to pdf, I just save them to iBooks, but Im on iOS. Are you using iOS or Android?

I have music on my phone in jpg but I crop as much useless space as possible to maximize the image!

forScore is pretty cool if you have an iOS device.

I'm using iOS. I don't see an app called iBooks in the app store.
