I have rated it very positively because I have made good use of it. Compared to any other music writing app, I would rate this one as the best there is, so far. It is easy to use (on my Galaxy Note 10.1. Easy to export as a pdf. The final printable format is good, easy to read, clear presentation. Things that can be improved: 1. Once you begin to write in a measure, it can be edited, but NOT deleted from the final draft. Therefore, one must be very careful not to accidently begin an extra measure after the final bar of the piece has been written. 2. Lyrics or text of the sheet music appear somewhat small. I would suggest that there be a menu for Font. Other than these two things, I am very satisfied with purchasing this app.
This app is great for the compositions that you work on the go. Its great especially with Samsung stylus. Sometimes it can be annoying when the app doesn't recognize my handwriting and "suggests" different notes. But overall, its a great app. I love it mainly for the ability to write on the app.
Great app for writing when traveling. Quite nice with a stylus - I use it with a Samsung Galaxy Note tablet. You need to "teach" it your writing. Can be clumsy at first but it gets better soon. I really like the feature to export to XML format. Allows me to import scores to Sibelius. And the native sound samples are pretty decent. The free version also has Photoscore, so you can convert existing sheet music to XML. Doesn't always resolve it, but I find no score photo conversion I have tried ever does. All in all, a wonderful tool for composing multi-instrumental parts on the go if you're used to writing on stave paper. I love that I can write anywhere (even when not connected to WiFi, unlike Noteflight which is Web based). I used to scribble in notebooks. No longer!
My favorite, lovely app)
Absolutely amazing! Lots of room for improvement. This app is the perfect idea of notation software for handheld devices. Love how I can use it anywhere, anytime and thus illuminating paper clutter, waste, pages smudged with graphite, the necessity to carry a notebook around with no instant feedback. Other apps don't even come close to the functionality and no app beats this for speed. I WILL USE THIS APP INDEFINITELY. Can't wait for future versions and upgrades. (Applause) Encore!
Too much time to learn and to correct mistakes. I work with sibelius more than 10 years which have more options but it is easy to learn than this program. I don't have time to explore and find out is something is bug or my mistake. You should have simple UI. 1st click- main options. 2nd click all sub options . This one is more like a game - try to find what is wrong. It is you or it is software !!!!
