One piece of advice

This app is amazing, and is the best on the app store for music notation apps. Its amount of content, ease of access, and scope all outshadow its competitors. My only suggestion is an addition to your premium plan which I believe should have microtonal accidentals. This is because currently there is no real motive to get the plan, so an extra small incentive might help. Obviously these are not especially important to a normal person, but these would help certain composers and teach others a new way if writing music while providing a reason to actually get your plan. Of course, it might take a while to notate every instrument, so I advise only adding it for piano and strings, and maybe woodwinds and/or brass. These should encompass the plus and minus marks which are part of the Pythagorean tuning system, and also one-fourth and three-fourth flats and sharps. Thank you for your time.

Good for most people

This app is great for if you just want to write something out quick. Obviously the phone isn't going to be most ideal method of composing music, but I feel like there are a few things here and there that could use some tweaking. Particularly with the guitar interface. I know I'm probably a minority when it comes to this, but I would like to use this so I can transcribe songs accurately, most of them being rock/metal songs, which are sometimes in different guitar/bass tunings like D standard, Eb standard or drop C, and while you can write in lower notes than what's accessible with standard E, it won't show up on the tablature, which, if you're someone who uses tablature primarily, can be a little inconvenient. So lower tunings for guitars/basses I think would be a welcome addition. Also, many of the guitar techniques that you can write out on the app won't happen during playback. For example, palm muting doesn't change the guitar sound, it just says that the notes are palm muted, bends and pre bends sometimes won't even appear in the music even after repeated attempts to add them in, and even when they do get added in, the notes will not bend during playback. Letting notes ring also doesn't do anything during playback, it just says to let the notes ring. Otherwise I'd say this is going to be fine for everyone else, which is why I gave it a 4 star rating even if I personally had some problems with it.

Overall good

The app functions fine and has many options to choose from but there are a few things missing or not working. There are no options for a legato marking for string instruments making notes that should sound more flowing cut short. The crescendo and decrescendo don't always work. In a piece I'm transposing I've added in crescendos and decrescendos but they don't always work. A decrescendo I added under a whole and tied half note doesn't decrease the dynamic in fact it stays the dynamic that is before the decrescendo. If I delete a note the rests that replace it are double. For example if I delete a half note the rests that replace it are quarter rests then I need to change it back to a half note or when I place it the note will be a quarter note (this happens with every note). It would be nice to tap on an already placed note and add the next note and not have them automatically become a double stop which can be hard to get rid of the wrong not since the notes are so close together and they are quite small. Other than these minor nitpicks the app functions well.
