It could use improvements, of course. But it's very comprehensive and user-friendly for the price. What isn't intuitive can be learned through "?" help descriptions. I hadn't read notation in years, but now I'm writing it. It was easy enough to print songs from my phone. Thanks! The Save system needs work. It's reliable, but shows a blank blue screen for a long time before verifying if saving after many additions. It seems frozen until you get used to the delay.

This us one of the better apps for music composition, but there are some things thst could be improved upon. It is a very sound app, and for most part is easy to use. The documentation however is rather sparse and leaves lot to be figured out by the user with trial and error, which is not great. So why the five stars? I would rate it a 4-4 1/2, but that's not possible, so because I think the developer will continue to improve the app. **Edit - I did write developer for help, still waiting .

I just downloaded this app this evening and I started using it right away. Didn't even really look at the instructions 😂 Very intuitive, lots of features. If what you want to do is enter notes and hear them play, you've found just the thing. I was inputting tin whistle songs and it even has a tin whistle voice on the midi. Nice.
