The Music Drawing Notation by Virtual Sheet Music has been specifically designed to write music by putting notes on a music staff, the easiest way. Any musician will be easily able to put down melodies "on the go."
You can write music by simply using your finger to put notes on the music staff, move notes around, change the notes' pitches by just moving them up and down, and modify their duration by selecting the corresponding value button. Rests may also be added, as well as sharps and flats. You can also write note chords by adding notes one over another. At any time, you can play, pause, and save the music you created into an archives section of the application, which allows you to retrieve previously saved songs. At any time, you can send or export your created music as a MIDI or Mp3 file via email.

Ratings and Reviews
I’m able to complete a few measures but the app suddenly closes without saving. So the tool (app) is worthless.
No sound came out when I tried to play the song I had written! I had my volume all the way up but nothing came out. I dislike that there aren't more advanced options. I saw this app and decided to try it out(because of the occasional good review) but I don't like it.
It would be good for beginner song writers but not for people who want a good quality, advanced app. (If they can find out how to get the volume fixed...)
I'm certain many people who try this app will agree with me when I say that I'd rather carry around a notebook and and hand-draw staves than try to notate with this app. It's just unbelievable tedious to add notes, and it's nearly impossible to get them in the right place. Overall, it's not worth using. At least not yet.
For people who want to tough it out but don't want to upgrade in order to be able to save files: I'm assuming taking screen shots (home button + power button at the same time) of your project will help somewhat. At least you won't completely lose your idea this way.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
