Currently have a 9.7" Samsung with a great screen. Very light, easy to use on airplanes, easier to transport than a luggable laptop. If there were a Finale for Android, you bet I would use it! Frank Mitchell
Thank you for posting your request. Porting Finale to the Android platform is not something we're considering at this time. It is more likely that SmartMusic that is a web-based music platform, now with a Music Editor, would support Android in the future.

I am sticking with Finale. But as android gets better and better, and as Microsoft users see the ease of use that comes with android tablets like the Samsung I am using right now, it may be of benefit to you to have a program that can handle Finale musx files. I'm not saying it should be free, just available for jotting down a new idea while on an airplane, or waiting for a courtroom date, or in a dental chair (well, maybe not that).
Have you checked out NotateMe or NotateMeNow? These are Android programs which have an MusixXML output. You can write down a new idea and export it easily to Finale. I've used it often with great success. You can use a smartphone or - better - a tablet and your finger nail or a pen (I prefere an Adonit DASH). It's a good solution for me.
