Breathe marks and note letters

I like ease of use with this app. I would like even more if I could add breath marks. I would also like to have an option for the notes to display letters instead of googly eyes, (the eyes are fun). The letters would help me when learning a new song.

Beautiful app

Just from using the free version it is a beautiful app. Pretty self explanatory. Fairly easy to use. Looking forward to owning the full version. Seems a little pricey but could very well be worth it.
