    "This app is good... for people who make music. As far as art goes, unless you're musically inclined, it won't be of much use to you. It doesn't allow any kind of drawing process, but if you're looking to help refine some of the music recording process, this is a good app for you. "

    "This sounds like a great way for artists to get down ideas for future artwork at the moment the creativity bug strikes them. They could be at work, running errands, or taking care of family, and they could quickly and easily document their idea for future use. It definitely sounds very inspirational, and I know several artists who could use this app."

    "As a person who has post it notes stuck all over the place so I don't forget things, this app is awesome. Instead of having the post it, then opening the default notes app and re-typing the same thing, I can just use this! It's also cool it is integrated with Evernote for us Office folks. Also, I have very good handwriting so I like seeing it in app form. "
