Re: Affordable Finale/Sibelius
You also have the option of purchasing a copy and not be bothered with the subscription. If you go this route, after one year you can no longer get updates but your copy will continue to work as it did and you do not have to pay any subscription fees. I did this with version 8 as well as I still have a functioning version 6 that I have to use for some folk music scores that have tablature graphics I created that version 8 does not play nice with.
Sibelius has a monthly subscription fee of somewhere between $5-8.
Finale Notepad is free, but pretty clunky compared to the real version.
Flat.io is a Google extension. I haven't done much with it, so can't say much.
