It keeps crashing on me, and some of the audio isnt exactly like the instrument it is representing. It may just be the free version, but if I wanted to get the full version I would want the free version to at least not crash on me all the time when I am writing music. I like the app otherwise, I just wish it would represent the instruments better than it does and stop crashing in the middle of my composing.

Does not work on Motorola Operating system. Sure wish you would fix it. Pro version doesn't work either. Specifically there is no way to save your work and no way to export it Could you please fix this app. I am a programmer and I can see it would not be difficult to fix. Just use the options circle button to put the save option and the export option and it would be fixed. I have the pro version and that's the version I need. Yours was and still is if you fix it the absolute best music program.

I really like this app, but I am not going to buy pro simply because of one thing. The fact that it makes you pay just to print a music sheet. There are a decent amount of things to start with in the free version, but I think you shouldn't have to pay to be able to print the music you make. I want to be able to print my music, but I'm not going to spend 10 dollars just for that. And I know there are other benefits, but at least as of now, the only thing I want from pro is printing.
