This is an absolute headache of an app that won't help you write music. I will admit, I'm very new to writing music, but I think I know enough to critisize this app. First of all, half the functions are impossible to find quickly. Second, if you put a repeat bar across one section, it will show up across the entire piece. You can't get rid of it unless you delete it altogether. This goes for anything else you add that's not a note. The app's just a pain in the backside. Don't waste your time.

This application is very buggie. It is free, but I ended up buying it (because I like to support the work someone does to create a useful application). However it has many problems. Can't save my work. When using two staves there are times when the second staff will not retain the key signature. There are other problems that are too numerous to list. I am unable to recommend this app.

For me there's one really big disadvantage....the app stores the cdo files (the scores) in the root Android folder. If you want to copy them to another location for safe-keeping purposes, you will find that the app does not recognise them any more. Also, Android v13 makes it very, very difficult to gain access to this root folder.
