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


- AudioScore® Expansion Pack: Sing/play into your device's microphone and it will be automatically notated using Neuratron's AudioScore technology.

    ...printout wastes a lot of space - measures too long, excessive space between lines, etc. MIDI exports don't recognise ties.

    The app is really good - my only issue is the cost of the add-on parts, which were the main reason for buying it. £15 for the starting app is a lot for an android app, but i feel that £20 for the add on is way too much without even being able to try it. How accurate is it? If the next add on is the same, then the whole package is £55. . .

    I am a music educator/composer. This app is great. It works well with my Samsung Note Pro 12.2 tablet. I get my ideas down and then transfer them to Finale 2014. Thanks guys!!

    It's inspired me to write more, which is a major plus. But how do you change time or key signature mid tune?. Why doesn't text input automatically follow note spacing like it does on Sibelius? O.k. I have to learn how to do multiple bar or even single riff copy and paste.

    In my mind this is the best music notation app on the market. Perhaps Neuratron should manufacture or subsidise the manufacture of a pen that works really well with NotateMe to smooth out the input experience. Also keep up the great work with the development. Just one thing I can't get the Music xml import to work yet can you assist the doco is a bit scarce on that function? Great app!

    Can there be a way to reset the learning process? I simply can't get used to writing on glass with a fat finger - my stylus is no better - and would value another go at teaching it. Innovative app.
