You can tap on a slur to let the modification handles appear. You can grab these handles and alter the shape of the slur as you want. (You may want to maximum zoom when grabbing the handles as this can be difficult to get on a small device).

Grace Notes

To add a grace note, tap this button on the keyboard. Palette

This will enter in grace note entry mode. You will notice the cursor turned to red.

You will see the button turning to the active voice you're on.
