This app keeps improving and the developers are pretty good at replying to emails (in my experience). I use it a lot for choral music and it does most of the things I want. No tempo changes mid-score at the moment and occasionally there are bugs but I think it is very good. Recent upgrade (Dec 2016) to the way scores are saved and loaded is a big improvement.
So close, BUT... 1. spent hours writing, saving, then the tool would state that the file was not created by Fast Score and would not open the song: start over. 2. write music, save the file, close it and reopen it later but it does not match what I wrote: start over. 3. spent hours writing, app crash: start over. It does so much, and seems great, but I've literally thrown away over 10 hours of writing. I so wish it was reliable.
Last but not least, don't forget about the staccatos + rip chords (you know what I mean?) and then it would be 5 stars. 🌟😃 And 2nd intervals are not supposed to hover on each other. One note is supposed to be on the other side of the stem and one note over the other side, future realese.
Great app! I cannot believe how great this app is. I love the options and mobility. The developers are super kind and quickly respond to reviews and suggestions. They are always trying to make the app better. And, it comes at a great price! You could not ask for a better music notation app.
Straight forward Got this as I don't read music & needed to "note bash" at home to learn music for choir. Straight forward touch screen, select & paste means it was easy to copy the scores quickly. It does take a little time to get used to it & is a bit glitch but does what I need. I can't figure out how to get the repeats to allow for a second ending though, so have had to re-Enter sections rather that use the repeats. Perhaps this might be added in a future update? Pro is very reasonably priced for this easy to use app, especially compared to some others on the market. UPDATED 5TH FEB 2016 I discovered a bug that kept causing score fast pro to crash when changing time signatures. I emailed the developers & received very fast developer response & within a week a new version was available to overcome this bug. Absolutely fantastic response from the developers. Keep it up! Gives you faith that there are still real people involved in things in this techno day & age!
Missing some funtionality Having just purchased the pro version I was expecting the functionality of being to add cres and dims and slurs. These are fundamental to music writing.
Now while playing your score, your score can auto-scroll to the currently playing bar/beat/notes and rests, following a selected stave.
Some small bug fixes.
