Worked nicely

My music scanned quickly and played back pretty accurately. There were a few errors in the piece but in all, the app works nicely.

Works Well!

I found this through AppAdvice. This is an amazing idea and it works much better than I expected!a


— I would like to see support for screenshots too. Lots of people play from their iPhones and iPads in addition to hard copies of sheet music.-

— I wish it had an option for visuals representations of what’s being played on a piano when a person is having trouble working it out by ear.

— I’d also love to see support for guitar tablature! I’d personally prefer an all in one app that can do both, but this would be super useful even as its own app.

— It would also be super helpful if this app could transcribe screenshots from piano/guitar learning apps like Yousician (piano/guitar) or Ultimate Guitar’s Tabs and convert their gamified versions and bad looking versions into real sheet music and tabs that can be easily read and followed.

For what it does, it’s an amazing app and I hope to see the above added in the future!

Full-featured graphics app, not just logos

Love this app to make images for social media. You start with the size you want and add backgrounds, effects, graphic elements, photos, and text. There are many choices in the free version so you can accomplish a lot without paying for a subscription. I hope they keep it that way!
