Name of app: 8counts!

Cost: free

pros: one standard way of breaking down 8 counts, can be divided into phrases, can be viewed as a full sheet and not just by 8 counts

cons: not every count has something going on, sometimes it’s easier to just and write the phrase in a note book

use: I used it to make up a phrase to teach my students.

Conclusion: I did feel restricted by the format at times. If you have sloppy hand writing or are worried about forgetting your notes at home than this is a great app.  Supposedly you can email the notes to your dancers but I wasn’t able to figure out how to do so. It could be used as a tool to teach students how to notate.
