Almost perfect

This notation app would be my runaway favorite if it had better sound in the piano. As it is, I switch back and forth between this one and Notion, which has great sound but doesn't allow more than one rythym per clef.

Fantastic! Updates Keep Coming

3/9/18 - Once again, another great update. Developer has made this even better. It hasn't left my iPad since it came out and was the first app I put on my latest iPad. (Previously, and still true) Perfect for my use with various folk musics. Valuable tool for copying poorly reproduced, and old (ancient) sheet music. Updates increase its value for me. (Previously, and still true) I have used this app for a while now. It has not left my iPad since I bought it when it first came out. Each version has been an improvement. I requested support using ornamentation and it happened. I like that I can transcribe with ease, and can immediately hear when a "fat finger" mistake has occurred. Plus midi! Received many compliments with the results. Highly recommended!

Tried this and love it!

I was using Touch Notation and it has been good, not great. However, that app hasn’t been updated in over a year and has many problems (crashes, impossible to connect slurs across pages, can’t add sfz w/o app crashing). So I buy this app and at first get confused about the inputting of notes, rests, etc. After inputting one song though, this app appears pretty easy to use and more importantly, stable. Very satisfied!
