Touchscreen and a piano, wonder if that works? Seems like a good idea, but did the developers hit the nail on the head when they actually made it? Can it make you feel like your actually playing a piano or is this app just something you will play with for 2 minutes and throw away? Lets have a look.
Functions & Design
When opening up the App, it will go straight into the piano screen, which consists of ten white and eight black piano keys. All the main buttons required to operate this App are located in the upper left corner of the screen. Among the other buttons you will find a piano button that allows the user to choose what type of piano they will play on, such as an Electric Piano or a Grand Piano. There is a slider were you can adjust the volume, and the remaining buttons are used in recording and playback of the wonderful music you have created.
Once starting up the App the user can jump right in and start playing the piano by tapping the keys. Using the external menu button on the smartphone the user can also add effects into his tune such as a echo or a reverb, save your recorded tune onto the your SD card or load a different sound sample from the SD card, or just simply adjust the sensitivity.
The App does well what it aims to do on the small screen. There are of course some minor issues such as sometimes the sound lags a little after pressing the key. And there is a problem if you want to press the same key repeatedly, if you try to press the same key twice you will have to wait a short time before you can use the key again. Otherwise once you get the finger dexterity, there isn’t much holding you back from just jamming away on you Android device. The App is available to download for free from the Android Market. Tested My Piano Version 1.7.
