Ratings and Reviews
Great App, Only Two Complaints
This does exactly what it advertises and is pretty straightforward to set up. My only complaints are that I wish the keys would change color when pressed (they do, but only just barely) and that there was a way to type a comma. There's a key with what appears to be a semicolon, but it actually types a period. If it's supposed to type either a period or comma, I can't figure out how.
Don’t even want a regular keypad now
I wasn’t about to pay $4 for a wireless keypad app, I’d sooner spend $50 on a real one. But as soon as I saw it’s adaptive for Sibelius I bought it without hesitation. I’m happy to say that it works, although it was a little tricky to hook up to my MacBook.
But the fact that I can look at my phone to see the notes instead of having to look at the computer screen and hit the corresponding key is wonderful. I no longer have to have that ugly keypad on my screen.
I haven’t tested the app without Wi-Fi, and I’m not sure if it’ll work without Wi-Fi. It’d be a shame because Sibelius is an offline app, and this app should be able to work with Bluetooth to give the same result.
Works exactly as promised
Once I figured out how to connect to my computer, the app has worked flawlessly and I will probably buy the Sibelius laout for my music notation program, despite the hefty $20 upgrade price tag (not all that much cheaper than a hardware USB keypad, albeit more portable). I do wish the app offered more proative guidance about connecting, especially in how to configure your computer. The help information about how to connect to your computer or laptop is quite buried, and the app doesn't offer it upfront during setup. That's unfortunate because the guidance is quite thorough and helpful. I fear this will cost the maker some negative reviews.
