Score Creator is a music composition application that is specially designed for mobile platforms. It's a simple but powerful music creation tool that caters your need of writing music on the go.

*** The app's user experience is completely optimized to make composing music on mobile devices easier and faster than ever. No more "tapping and zooming" the screen just to add a music note or a chord symbol. No more "dragging and dropping" from the palette just to add a sharp/flat sign. All you need to do to write a song is just tapping the keyboards (notes and chords) that are designed like a text keyboard. COMPOSING MUSIC IS NOW AS SIMPLE AS TEXTING TO YOUR FRIENDS!

*** Apart from being a songwriting app for songwriters, Score Creator also functions as a music teaching and learning assistant tool for music teachers and students. Teachers can teach students how to read music notation by directly entering music notes into the app and playing back the song, while music students can practice by themselves by notating their favorite songs into the app and playing along with their own music instruments.

Please read this. I’m beggin ya

I have had this app for a while and got the pro version like 2 years ago. I never really use the drums, but I made a song today and used them for the first time. They were really good. I liked that I could lay down quarter note bass drum notes in the measure and on top of that do a snare without opening any menus or tapping anything, you just click the notes in the bottom row and and the top row and it works. You technically have 8 beats per measure (in 4/4) 4 on the bottom and 4 on the top. In the new version it looks like there are 4 beats no matter what. In order to have a bass line and a snare you need to do 2 layers which is more difficult and overall, less convenient. Is there a way that that can be adjusted like having a button in settings which returns the software to the previous version, I do not mind losing the extra sounds. I just want to have the convenience again. Also. Is it possible to please add an electric guitar? Thank you for reading

Best composing app for phones (update 7.9)

I discovered this app about 3 and half years ago and I honestly didn’t think this app was any good. Some of the instruments didn’t even match the sounds, some were too loud, you could only make a song do big before the playback lags so you have to make a new score to continue. I didn’t let it stop me though because this was really only app I could use to play around with and make my own music. Time progressed and this app got noticeably better, most of the issues with the instruments were fixed but everything else remained. I would say this app would be considered a 4 star but this new update fixed my biggest issue: articulation and dynamics. These 2 things were non existent before this update. After seeing that this update gave us the access to really get more musicality out of the scores, that’s enough to bump this all the way up to 5 stars. I’ve noticed the lag playback on big scores is a problem and the auto-scroll still doesn’t work but I’m able to work around these problems. If you’re looking for an app that give you access to make scores on the fly for relatively low price for the full experience, I wholeheartedly recommend this. Trust me, it’s the most user friendly.

Great App, One Major Problem

This problem is volume. Now there isn’t one huge thing, it’s a collection of small issues. The biggest one has to be that the apps is just to loud. Try listening to a score with a lot of loud parts with headphones, the fact that they are loud is great, they are possibly just too loud. Specific instruments that have this problem are the flute, clarinet, piccolo and oboe. This is simply due to how the human ear works, higher pitches are easier to hear, but the problem is that the app does nothing to compensate. They should be brought down in volume at least on high notes. On the complete opposite end of the spectrum are the tuba and euphonium, their low pitches as well as smooth brassy sound make them very quiet, the should be at least 50% louder than the are right now. There are also articulations with this problem, accents need to scale with dynamics and make the top of the note louder, not bring them to the same volume despite dynamics. Accents right now is just like changing the dynamic from piano to forte and then back. The next one is legato, it makes notes quieter, this is not at all what legato is. Right now they don’t need to do anything, they just need to exist in the score as a visual.
