Ground-breaking music composition and music notation software from Neuratron with handwriting recognition.

- Featuring powerful handwritten music recognition - quickly and accurately enter music notation with your finger or stylus, on a tablet or smartphone.

- 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 printable score at the end!

- Write music notation 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.

- Email PDF, MusicXML and MIDI files of your scores to friends or other musicians. Open in Sibelius, Finale and other desktop software. Print to paper (requires free PDF printing app to be installed).

- 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 recognizes a wide range of music notation 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 a display taller than 3.8 inches

    Will you please add multiple measure rest. It would make the music a lot more pleasing to read.

    Awesome customer service; they saw people weren't happy with the new update and they fixed it right away. I'm really glad the handwriting overlay is optional! As for the program itself, it works pretty well. It takes some getting used to, but it seems to recognize my handwriting most of the time. You won't be writing your next symphony on here, but it's great for sketching out simple themes or id

    I understand the developers are trying very hard to make this work, but let's be realistic. Handwriting recognition will never be accurate, not in the near future anyway. I don't have the time to keep trying and hoping that the machine will understand what it is supposed to. I just need something reliable, just having a palette to select notes like in Finale or other desktop editing software so ea

    First, be patient. I thought the handwriting recognition would NEVER WORK, because it didn't - until after a very frustrating 50 bars or so of painstaking Learning...then it's great ;). I like the direction the layout is taking, but ultimately maybe what it needs is to just convert the handwritten notes to an editable typset once the measure is complete. Also, there are still some key articulation

    This interface NEEDED an update - it had unused space, and inadequate customisation. I would like to be able to place the writing panel at top and eliminate the separation bar for use on a landscape phablet with a stylus. Miraculously, the update is a WORSE UI! Superimposing detected input as it is written could only be workable if the detected interpretation were transparent background to written
