Playback notes are WRONG PITCH
The pitches played back are INCORRECT! For instance, I wrote out two measures, four quarter notes each. The pitches I wrote were the following: F5, F5, D5, C5 | F5, C5, F5, D5. When I pushed the playback button, these were the pitches that sounded: Aflat6, Aflat6, F6, Aflat6, Eflat6, Aflat6, F6. They were all exactly a minor tenth above what I had written! This has also happened with other projects I have attempted to write on this program. I do music therapy with kids, many of whom have an interest in learning how to compose music. I paid for the pro version of this app SPECIFICALLY for the playback feature, and the fact that I cannot hear the correct pitches I have written is very, VERY disappointing. Moreover, there should be a way to insert key signatures.
Key signatures or no, however, I certainly hope the creators of this program will fix this wrong note playback issue as soon as possible.
Nice and Simple, however could use a bit of fixes
I have to give you credit for actually making an app that makes sheet music on ios and at a very cheap price. However at the moment I'm having some issues. You can only play 4 notes in a measure, so lets say I have 3 quarter notes and want to end the measure with 2 8th notes, it will only allow me to place one. So I can't really go beyond quarter notes as far as note placing. Because of this, the I can't really create songs on this app, especially because I intend to make fast songs.
However I'm not going to give this one star because I think this app has great potential. It's nice to have a cheap app that allows you to create sheet music on the go. I'll keep an eye on the updates and will definitely support this app, but for now I have to give it 3 stars because I can't use the app the way I intended to.
Not worth the time at present
The app seems half-finished. The worst offense is the lack of a playback function. There is also no in-app keyboard, no metronome, and you can only use treble and bass together--no more than two voices can be created. Notes that fall above or below the ledger do not have additional ledger lines to denote their place, which makes it difficult to read. Also, not all notes are represented, or if they are, it's too difficult to get them to "stick." I couldn't get the program to give me anything below middle C while still in treble clef, and gave up shortly afterward.
The app looks clean, and its limited functions work well, but there are far too few features for this app to be considered useful in any way. As-is, this app is slightly less efficient than using a pen and paper to compose.
