To develop Topline, we worked closely with emerging songwriters and producers from across London to understand their creative needs.
They all shared a big concern about losing original song ideas. We decided to solve this challenge and the result is Topline - the latest in a continuing series of innovations designed to bring the Abbey Road magic closer to music makers whenever and wherever they create.

Amazing but NEEDS true iPad display support!!!!

Love using this app, much handier than the standard memos app which gets destroyed with songwriter ideas if you make a lot, I use this app everyday but it’s so frustrating not having proper iPad resolution support and true app display when working on those size screens and in studio
