Great App.. but Minor Problems

Love how you can import guitar pro files. That was my main reason for buying Reflow, but besides being great at importing guitar pro files there are some annoying problems that need to be addressed.

First off the browser is a great way to show all the files, but it needs a delete option and it would be great if we coudl update the information of each file within the browser.

Secondly the interface is confusing. It took me forever just to get some ideas down, and everyone knows once a great riff our chord progression hits you, it leaves just as fast. In conclusion, a faster and friendlier interface would be magical.

Lastly, there are some things missing from the guitar tab. like bends to another note (there is a bend feature but it doesn't correctly display on the main notation window), hammer-on and pull-off symbols, and also it doesn't allow me to sustain one note from one string and then play other notes after and on top of that ringing note (this is especially annoying because I am an acoustic guitar player and I do this all the time).

Anyway just a few problems, and I'm sure they will be fixed in upcoming updates. All in all, it's a great app and so far it is worth the $10.
