What's New

Version 5.2.2

We fixed a bug that happened occasionally to a few of you when you entered and exited levels, which caused the screen to look a little strange and sometimes the app would crash. That is clearly not meant to happen so we squashed that bug.

We want to make it as easy as possible for you to achieve your goal of playing piano, so we’ve added the ability for you to set your own practice reminders!

Choose the time and frequency you want to practice and you can even add your personal reminder to your calendar. Life can get busy, so we’ll help keep you on track!

We’ve also fixed a few pesky bugs, sorry about those.

As always, if you have any questions or suggestions, reach out to us at

Overall I think the app is an amazing idea and has so much potential, I know despite some difficulties I have already learned so much, but at 120 dollars a year for a premium membership the app should be flawless when it comes to functionality and unfortunately this is not even close to the case. I have just recently gotten my standard everyday piano tuned and I have followed every suggestion the app has given toward improving note recognition; I have tried lowering the volume on my device for minimal interference, playing with no background noise again for no interference, flipped my device, moved it as close to the piano as possible while still being in view while playing, made sure the microphone was not blocked, and I have even tried removing my phone case, all have had no success in improving the app’s ability to recognize notes. I have noticed that the app has a particularly difficult time recognizing the first G note after middle C especially while being played simultaneously with a left hand chord. I am extremely motivated toward learning piano and the app has already helped me so much in this goal but this annoyance is really hindering my progress. Please fix this issue as soon as possible.

Hi there, would you be able to send us a video of yourself playing with the app to so we can analyze this further? We would love to help you out with this issue as soon as possible. Thanks!

Dear makers..


I allready know how to play piano pretty well and I was curious when I saw your app to see if it really did teach piano CORRECTLY sadly it doesn't.. I turned the microphone on slipped the totorial and it started with the first basic piano keys, so as I pressed middle C the app seemed promising but.. then came middle D.. so I was pressing the key right next to middle C which IS middle D, and the app kept saying I was pressing middle D sharp, I tried to ignore that and went on to the song part, and let me just tell you.. the song part is completely timed wrong, when you press the key it either tells you your delayed or went too fast, this confused me since I was playing it on the right beat but yet it said I was wrong.., over all the app needs ALOT of work, the app doesn't correctly identify when keys are played plus the beat timing is off by alot , it was such a bummer when I found out it really isn't the best way to learn or continue learning piano. If other piano players tested it out and had the same problem than you know what I mean, however if this problem just happened to me then it my have something to do with my phone, thank you for reading this if you did.

Developer Response

Hi there, I'm sorry for this issue. The app will only work with pianos tuned to "concert pitch" (A4=440Hz). If you get your piano tuned, or make sure your keyboard is pitched correctly, this will solve the issue. If you have any other problems, just let us know at
