Well Worth The Cost

You are very limited to what you can do with the free edition so I put down $10 for the entire thing and it was very worth it. It's tough to use at first but I, for the most part, understand how to use this app entirely and I couldn't be happier. I play piano and like writing my own sheets of existing music or if the sheets don't exist I make them myself. This is excellent, if you are interested in making your own music buy this, don't be cheap, this was a good investment.

Fix this crashing issue!!

Many years back I got this app in hopes I could quietly create a song at 12:00 am so I wouldn't wake my family by playing the piano so late. However, it seems that after I place down 3 notes, which was hard to do, if I try to place any more than that and try to play it, it would continually crash. I thought it was just my iPod 4 that was the problem, since many things would crash. Now, in 2016, this app has not been improved one bit. It still crashes and I now have an iPhone 6, which rarely crashes apps. Very, VERY, disappointed with this performance of this app, and will never, EVER, download it again and waste space.

Great app

This a great app even for the price of getting the full version. I would love it if you would come out with an update to fix some of the things that crash the app i.e trill, and tempo change etc. but otherwise absolutely amazing
