What's New in Version 1.5.2

A WASTE (if your instrument is anything but a piano)
I purchased this app with high hopes but you literally can't do anything without additional purchases. I was hoping to compose a violin trio and I had to pay extra to change the acoustic piano instrument to violin only to find out that 1.) you can't get rid of the bass clef without paying extra (even if it's in VIOLIN mode) 🙂 2.) you have to pay extra to add in other parts 🙄
Other than that you can't change the time signature or the tempo. SO BASICALLY this app was only made for pianists playing 4/4 at 120 bpm.
Also, there's ads everywhere! Seriously! In between going to the settings, menu, and the actual sheet music, there's 3 different ads, which I find very inconvenient.
Pricy but invaluable on the go
Write a lot on the side. Has more features than a free one and highly reliable but don’t expect to put more than 5 instruments; unable to break stems or rearrange notation symbols. :(
Still the best thing for me; invaluable for those with bouts of inspiration but little time to prep a paper; it’s literally there when you need it! Haven’t tested limitations but will in the future! Ty developer for a very useful app. c:
I love this app as it is great for composing music or making a piano cover! Although this is very fun to use, I have found it slightly difficult to add a note, but that is the least of my worries as it is soon resolved. I have created a total of 1 complete song and more on the way!
