Easy to use

My only complaint is that the playback doesn’t differentiate between articulated notes and regular notes. It seems to play everything as a regular note.

WONDERFUL but i have a slight problem

Super duper app i absolutely love it, its easy to use, worth the money, and it enriches my life. However, slight personal issue:
I had to redownload the app to update it (my phone is dumb) and before i did i exported all my written songs to google drive.
Afterwards when i tried to import them back i could not find a way to do it?
Before it updated i could export them from the drive to the app but the app doesnt show up as an option anymore.
Basically reimplementing that feature would be nice as i still am in the dark as to getting those songs back in the app :(

Could you please add a glissando mark? It is missing and would be great to add for violin or other instruments of the sort.
Pizzicato would also be nice and inverted turns and inverted mordants would be useful.

Apart from some missing notation, iWriteMusic is such a useful app! You can use it whenever, it doesn’t take too much storage, I have been using the app for 4years and have bought the full version! The game does crash sometimes, could that please be fixed? Great App!
