Default Writing software that's web-based?

Hey folks, so I have eschewed the windows devices out of the house in an attempt to simplify (just rarely ever used it).
But that means I no longer have access to BWW anymore.
On my Pixelbook and Android I have "DroidPiper", but it's fairly limited in scope (i.e. working on a medley with the band and the Inline text isn't showing up).

Any suggestions on what can work on iDevices / Android (including, especially ChromeOS running Google Play)?

Thanks

I second the vote for ABC; I have never used anything else seriously in 20-odd years.


One piece of software I haven't ever seen mentioned is Dorico, built by the original Sibelius people. I have no idea how capable it is for pipe music but it certainly seems intelligently designed and might be worth investigating. There is a free edition, I think.

Right, I see that it'll convert... but does ABC have an editor/viewer that's online or cross platform?
