- Quickly and accurately enter music notation with your finger or stylus.

- Write music on the train, in a plane, by a lake, or just sitting comfortably on your sofa!

- Simple, intuitive interface with little to distract you from your creativity - similar to writing with pen and paper, but with instant playback, editing and a score suitable for publishing at the end!

- Write music for solo instruments (including voice and piano), drums or ensembles from string quartets and choirs to full orchestral scores. Includes support for transposing instruments.

- PhotoScore Add-In (In-App Purchase): Take photos of printed sheet music with your device's camera, so you can play back and edit them with NotateMe! Recognizes 5-line staves and most markings including chords, flags, beams, rests, accidentals, articulation marks, clefs, key signatures, time signatures, tuplets, slurs, ties, hairpins and text including lyrics, dynamics and instrument names. Note: Requires 5MP camera & 1 GB RAM - so not for iPad 2, iPhone 4S, iPad Mini (1st gen) or earlier.

- Email PDF, MusicXML and MIDI files of your scores to friends or other musicians. Open in other apps and desktop notation packages. Print to paper.

- Import and edit MusicXML files (most music symbols supported).

- Automatically sync your scores to Dropbox so you can edit them on your phone whilst you are out, and then on your tablet when you get back.

- Great when learning or teaching music notation.

- NotateMe recognises a wide range of music symbols, including notes (with solid, open, and slanted noteheads), flags, beams (even cross-staff*), leger lines, multiple voices per staff, chords, rests, accidentals (natural, sharp, double sharp & flat), articulation marks, augmentation dots, ties, slurs, hairpins, clef changes, key signatures. Barlines, clefs, time signatures and tuplets are added automatically.

- Drag and drop (or set selected drawings to) further music symbols including cross noteheads, pedal markings, ornaments and appoggiatura.

- Add chord-symbols, dynamics, technique, tempo changes and lyrics to your score. Write comments or ideas in 'red pen'.

- If NotateMe doesn’t recognize your style immediately, keep at it, as it will adjust. Leave clear space between symbols and make markings clearer with further strokes if any transcription errors occur. If you experience problems, tap 'Help Improve NotateMe' from the Export menu and we will analyze your handwriting to help us improve NotateMe further.

* Cross-staff beaming requires an iPad

Customer Reviews

Very frustrating app!!!

This app in concept is amazing. As a professional musician and an eternal student of music and theory, I'm always writing. Be it documenting ideas, composition, jazz theory, teaching, transcribing, I'm always writing. I keep a staff paper close by. I thought this would be the perfect use of my new iPad Pro and Apple Pen. Like others reviewers here, I wanted this to be the go to solution. Unfortunately, I have given up. My handwriting is very good and easily recognizable. The resolution on the Apple Pencil is amazing. Despite all of this, NotateMe doesn't seem to understand a simple sharp and even sees it as a flat sometimes. Most of us don't have a lot of disposable free time, and to burn it trying to teach this app recognition in futility is extremely aggravating. I know the following statement may seem contradictory, but I do wish the developer much success. We do need something like this, especially when discussing musical concepts with students on the fly. The concept is a very creative one, however, it is not ready for the prime time, and the company should not be putting this software out when it is not ready.

NotateMe Is Incredible!

With this app I am able to do what I once needed a full sized scanner and normal computer for!

Hand write music but more importantly use the PhotoScore plugin to recognize sheet music and turn it into digital music so that it is quick and easy to transpose parts to other instruments, make edits and everything else you can do with digital music!

Absolutely outstanding!

iPad Pro + Apple Pencil = Win

I had previously used the app with a simple rubber-tip stylus, and wasn't thrilled. It was okay for quick sketches, but nothing for any substantial productivity.
Thanks to my tax refund, I bought an iPad Pro (the 12" version) and an Apple Pencil - the precision of the pencil makes this app game-changing.
Getting ready to start my doctorate in composition - this combination is going to change things big time!
