Excellent app!

In anticipation of my Kalimba, I have been using this app to practice. I am addicted! Had a question and the developer responded quickly, thank you! I just wish there was an option to save frequently played tabs instead of scrolling or searching for them. And a big thank you to the individuals that share their tabs in PDF format! Never played any instrument or knowing how to read notes, with this app I am able to play music!!!

Excellent music trainer

The sound is pleasant and accurate to my physical Kalimba, and being able to display notes on the keys is a great teaching aid. I’m just touching on the tabs function now, but can tell it’s going to be fun and educational. The song tutorials are valuable as a way of teaching chord combinations and how they can be used.

In short, I’m very happy with this app and will continue to use it daily.

No real Functionalty ,

Not easy to use, sound quality, intrusive ads

I think the technology here assembled in the right way could actually be a pretty decent app but the attention to detail in different places just makes it not work.

I understand ads if people have to make money - but they’re so disruptive so often here it doesn’t give you a chance to get into the flow

The quality of the Keylimba sound is not great, doesn’t sound like real life, even for an app it doesn’t sound as good as the other unity-based app in the App Store, though that has less functionality. The samples should be redone with care.

Using all the features is not very intuitive, I don’t think a UX professional helped at all or gave input here.

It looks like most of the development work has been done here, some attention to detail could make this a perfectly fine or even excellent app.
