Ratings and Reviews
This was what I was looking for. But.... My major issue is that after drawing a note there doesn't appear to be a way to move it around on the grid to another note line. If it can be done, I haven't found it. So, it makes it a hassle finding the right note. There should also be a toggle to turn off the need to "hold" the paper. I shouldn't need an apple pen to have this option. Once that note moving issue is addressed, I'll likely be getting the paid version.
