Love it, but could be even better
I've found this game to be completely addicting, but I really wish the developers would consider a few improvements ... First, I'd love to be able to reset the game to start it all over again. Now that I've beaten almost all the songs, and have improved my skill considerably, I'd like to start from the beginning, but when I uninstall the game and then reinstall it, it still remembers what songs I have beaten. Second, the slider where you buy points in exchange for making it easier does not work. Third, it would be nice if it kept track of your high scores so your could try to beat a previous record. I would be willing to pay for that feature. Oh and the songs should be sorted in alphabetical order. All in al though, it is a great game.
Now, while I can't say that this program is the BEST way to learn to play the piano, it is fun and challenging. There seems that people are complaining about not being able to score high enough or correctly (which is understandable) so if you decide to play the game, remember that it doesn't just score you on hitting the correct note, but also holding the note for the correct length of time. If you hold a quarter note for a half note, or you only tap it for and
Nice concept, disappointing implementation
The idea of kinesthetic follow-along playing is an appealing one but there are a number of flaws in its implementation. For example, after the first song that is relatively easy to play at the passing level, the subsequent songs are much more difficult to "pass" despite not being that much more complex. In other words, the scoring seems arbitrary and inconsistent, either buggy or perhaps intended to drive users to a level of distraction at which they will pay to skip the un-passable songs and/or remove the visually intrusive ads. This app has real potential, but in its current state it is still impossible for me to recommend.
