It's okay Good for creating/composing, but most of the time when I try to zoom out on the staff, it kicks me out of the app. SUGGESTION: read tutorial before composing. If you do not, you will be completely lost while writing the song. It is slightly complicated 'manuvering'the whole thing but, if it would stop kicking me out and be less touchy, 5 ⭐
Constructive msg ahead Very very hard to use. Just tried to note one of my own compositions. Wanted to add a second note to a chord, but it adds a rest instead. You have to double tap, change it to a note then longtap. Then drag to its proper place. Thats 5 steps instead of 1. My suggestion is to only add rests or notes when you tap the next empty area. When you tap around a note it should add another note in the same spot. Some buttons to change a note's position would be cool too. And play the note every time you put it down.
Crap Can't change staves, no slurs or ties. Just missing too many basic features to be of any use other than as a toy. And it crashed 3 times in the first 5 minutes. Deleting.
Re-launch Apps bug and Slurs I am using GT-P1000 with the gingerbread firmware of 2.3.3. Unfortunately, some of the notes from Bass section has changed from Dotted into Natural. Hence, we are not able to manually insert any ties and slurs within the sheet, no Tuplet as well and impossible to insert any accidentals in chord. Do hope to see Breaks, Key signatures, Metronome mark, Note relationships, Dynamics, Articulation marks, Ornaments, Octave signs, Repetition and codas in the next update or future.
Love and Hate. When it is working, it is great as long as I am careful to choose what I really want to compose; a little bit dificult as a user-friendly app. Right now, it keeps crashing. Please fix in a hurry. Can you make it so one can layer more than 1 sound with another in the composition. I'm keeping it for now.
Useful but too flawed This is useful as an app in concept, but when I save files it automatically changes notes which should be flat (the key is A flat) to all be natural. Extremely irritating and renders the app useless for my purposes
- Added SD-card save and auto-save functionality! Look in SD card in /MusicalNotePad directory to access files directly.
- Increased max zoom-out distance.
- Chords now have stems and flags.
- Ties across measures display but don't work.
- Occasional lag at load.
- Zooming out all the way can be kind of quirky. To touch the lowest possible notes, zoom in just a little.
- Changing time signature of measure with existing notes can cause problems.
