Fix this crashing issue!!
Many years back I got this app in hopes I could quietly create a song at 12:00 am so I wouldn't wake my family by playing the piano so late. However, it seems that after I place down 3 notes, which was hard to do, if I try to place any more than that and try to play it, it would continually crash. I thought it was just my iPod 4 that was the problem, since many things would crash. Now, in 2016, this app has not been improved one bit. It still crashes and I now have an iPhone 6, which rarely crashes apps. Very, VERY, disappointed with this performance of this app, and will never, EVER, download it again and waste space.
Simple UI? Nope.
All that and more is missing. Well it's not missing... You just need to pay $10!
Look, it's simple. This app offers many features but almost nothing for free. Only 4/4 time really? No dotted notes for free either I can't compose one decent piece with this unless I pay $10.00. You people would have 10 times as many downloads if you offered more for free.
