    "This isn't a bad app at all. I think for teaching purposes it could be quite useful, especially if you have an IPAD. It's very convenient overall. You can edit notes, record in real time; there's just so many things you can do. You can export your creation and share it with others. My favorite feature is the handwriting tool because i can do things on the fly. It really is a full featured app with many instruments, editing, voices etc. I would highly recommend this app to teachers and the like"

    "This would be very good for the digital age. It allows you to have a large amount of music with you at all times in a very small space. It also would make it a lot easier to share things, which is what music is all about."

    "I really dislike Dropbox. It installs in a clunky manner, it's hard to get it to behave as you think it should and in this case it seems like a poor fit for the category beyond my dislike. Sure, if you need to share sound or sheets this could do it, but so could like a bajillion other things."

    "This app is great for group work. It helps to hold people accountable and make sure that they contribute. It also is easy to use and looks great. The only downfall is the price. The app alone is expensive, and the premium subscription costs even more. It should either be one price or free with the ability to upgrade. Doing both is just greedy."

You can also lower or raise the pitch of the song without decreasing or increasing the tempo. Or, you can do both. The files are then exportable as mp4 files via email or SMS."
