    If i bought a software like staffpad would it work with a windows phone like lumia 950 or is it only compatible with surface devices?
    And if i chose a smartphone with android ,would there be a serious alternative to write music,something like notepad?
    I don t understand well if these software require a particular hardware of just the proper OS to work

    Does it have to be staff or would a piano roll be OK?
    Smartphones always have built-in sound and a microphone, which is totally OK for sketching/composing.

    I'm not sure whether it is only compatible with surface devices. Maybe a good google search would tell the answer.

    An Android alternative is NotateMe (Site | Google Play | iTunes) by Neuratron who are the makers of PhotoScore and AudioScore (which integrate into Sibelius). Many people seem to love NotateMe. The price is pretty high for mobile device app (~$40 I think) but that's a bit less expensive compared to the price of StaffPad ($99 I think). There's also a free version of NotateMe that has only 1 (one) staff.

    Edit: Your answer to whether StaffPad is an exclusive Surface app can be found here (click) or here.
