Sheetmusic writing app
#1
Lightbulb 
For reading sheetmusic, Mobilesheets is great. However, I like to (re)write some music to once in a while.
On my PC I'm using Capella which, combined with CapellaScan, works fine.

I was wondering whether there are apps available for Android with which music can be written. I already found Zap's ABC; this however is too limited in its possibilities.

Anyone know an app which has the basics of Capella, Sibelius or Overture?

Is that an app on Android or do you use it on your PC?

I think that's a PC/MAC app. I've used PrintMusic on the PC in the past. I've never seen an app for writing music equivalent to that for Android. There's an android app called Songbook with which you can create/read/edit/transpose chordpro files, but that's quite limited since all it shows is lyrics and chord names - through handy if you play guitar/uke etc...and that's all you need.

Also check out musical notepad in beta but looks more promising.

handwrite ('fingerswipe'?) the notation on the stave and it converts it. Notation, chords, dynamics; musicXML, midi and PDF export. It is gradually improving its interpretation engine of what you write. I have not tested this, but a clear (see-thru) stylus point like Adonit's range of Jot pens would probably be useful as you can see exactly where in the stave you are placing note heads (etc.)

Its more fun for me than for anything serious (I still use score paper initially!)

Android (and iOS)

I've just been trying a browser app, noteflight.com, and I'm very impressed. You need to use a mouse or a midi keyboard, but the program works very well, and it's free for up to 10 scores (scores are stored on their web site). The printed output looks very professional, and the app has many, many options. I haven't used Finale for a few years, but this program seems to operate better and easier. You can get unlimited scores and a few more (unneeded) options by paying a monthly fee.

I've just started using the MuseScore app for android (https://play.google.com/store/apps/detai...lite&hl=en) and windows (http://musescore.org/en).   Not fully discovered all the features and would love to hear any comments.
