Reflow is a full featured Tablature and Sheet Music Editor that can be used to create your own original scores in a very flexible and innovative way. Songs you write can be played back using the embedded software synthesizer.
Reflow can also import and play any Guitar Pro*, PowerTab or MIDI file you can find on the Internet, giving you access to literally hundred of thousands of songs to learn and practice.
The new Reflow engine allows you to modify your song while it's still playing, for a totally non interruptive workflow.
Reflow can be used to compose and practice any song for Guitar, Bass, Drums, Piano, Banjo, and many other instruments as long as it uses Standard Notation or Tablature.
With its iCloud and Dropbox support, every change you make in a session with your band, will be waiting for you when you come back home. And it works seamlessly with the Reflow desktop app too.
This is a great addition to your musical tools collection, at an affordable price.

Ratings and Reviews
Looks good but keeps crashing
Load a file (Dropbox supported) hit settings, turn off the score and scroll around for a couple seconds and it crashes every time. Hope to see this fixed as I love the way it looks.
Good Notation App
I teach music and write originals for my jazz band, and this app works very good for my purposes. It's not Finale, but it's far less complicated to use, which means a quicker learning curve. The layout is logical and the manual does a good job documenting the apps's features. I teach guitar, and the tab notation options are extensive. When inputing chord shapes, the user is given a good variety of options. Drum beats are easy to enter and look good. It offers plenty of generic synthesized sounds (guitar, keyboard, violin, etc.), though not high quality samples. It gives the user plenty of options for notating articulations etc. It does not support input with a MIDI controller. I'm using iOs 6.1.3 and the only glitches I found are that dotted eighth note rests don't display the dot (but playback realizes the dot is there) and the bar-lines randomly go blank (the music will still play). The second glitch could be a big problem if I was in the middle of an extensive project, but it has only happened to me after making a serious change to the display options (such as changing staff options). Usually, closing the editor and re-opening it fixes the problem. PDF export worked great. I haven't tested MIDI export or it's support for Guitar Pro 5 or Dropbox, but I look forward to using those features.
Not so great for drums
The choice of symbology for drums is kind of antiquated. No formatting options as far as I can tell (so you're at the whim of the app as far as how many measures per line). No note barring options...it's a little weird that it doesn't bar eighth notes together into groups of four like other notation software. No way to control this as far as I can tell. Entering notes is easy once you figure it out, though...but cut and paste is not supported so it's a little tedious. App's help window is empty. Three toms, snare (and rim shot which sounds exactly the same as regular snare), kick, open/close hi hat, ride, crash. You're out of luck if you want to specify bell vs bow for the ride, cross-sticking, or if you have more than one crash. No ghost notes or double strokes. Playback is weird...even when it goes past the song, it keeps playing with a weird hissing. And for some reason, my drum track is called "guitar" and I can't figure out how to change it.
Overall, I'm disappointed and wish I could get my money back. This is beta software at best. Giving it two stars because the other instruments might be better, but look elsewhere for drum notation.
