AbstractMobile devices have become ubiquitous, and are becoming replacements for personal computers as well. This brings many opportunities for software developers who want to fulfill the demands of productivity software on these new interfaces, particularly tablets. In this paper, we examine the advantages and disadvantages of the tablet, and document the software engineering and design of a mobile application for music notation, Symphony Pro. The two high-level aspects of developing a large-scale application are user interface design and software design. User interface design deals with a user-centric perspective, to allow ordinary humans to interface with the application smoothly, whereas software design deals with helping developers manage complexity in implementation.
