Multiple Verses in iPhone version
Symphony for iPhone
Is there a way for me to add multiple verses in the iPhone version of Symphony? It seems to only allow adding one line of lyrics.
We left out support for multiple verses only to simplify the interface, but suppose it would be of more benefit to allow it. A long needed update should be available soon.
I hope "soon" means, like, within a week! I'm extremely angry that feature was left out! I can't use the app at all without it!

Sorry we didn't let you know about this. A version supporting this feature was released months ago in 4.4.4.
To add multi-verse lyrics on Symphony iPhone, just return to the Lyrics tool itself, under Score Symbols > Text > L1 icon. If you then press+hold this (now) expandable button, you can then specify which line/verse the text cursor corresponds to.
I didn't mean lyrics. I meant layering notes, like how Moonlight Sonata was written. As an example, in the top staff I find triplets and half notes in the same measure, on top of each other. (I'm so mad that I can't upload a picture from my photos app to here! It would make explaining this much easier.) With the current version of Symphony for iPhone, I am unable to do that, and that's what renders the app useless for me. Add that feature ASAP!!! And that means
MuseScore is able to do that with 4 layers of notes, not that I've ever really needed more than 3 (in some rare cases). 2 would be just fine. That would enable me to do stuff like add a note with 2 stems pointing in opposite directions, or have an accompaniment and a melody in the same hand, and they don't have to be the same type of notes.
I hope what I'm saying makes sense. It's a feature that I need with the complex stuff that I come up with.
Another song that requires this feature is Claire De Lune.
Okay, I just opened the app, and both those scores are in there as samples. How were the top lines created, note-wise? THAT'S what I can't figure out. We're they made with the iPad or the iPhone version. If I wanted to duplicate, the long way, (meaning note by note) either of those songs, would I be able to do it on the iPhone version. If so, how do I do it? If not, FIX IT!!
Okay, I think I figured it out. Let me double check.
Yep! I figured it out! Thank goodness!! Sorry about that.

Glad you did!
To reiterate for others using Symphony iPhone:
- You should see a voice function (labeled V1) at the lower right when in
. Portrait doesn't support this function.
- Press the icon to toggle through the two available layers for the iPhone app, with V1 having the upward stems, and vice versa for V2.
- You can long-press the icon to open a menu for customizing various voice/layer preferences
