Must have app for bagpipers

This is a must have app for anyone who is learning to play the bagpipes. Being able to have the music with me wherever I am allows me to practice whenever I want. Having the music play while I am practicing helps me learn the notes and the timings as they should be played.

Features keep being added on a regular basis and the developer is very responsive to questions.

I fully recommend this app.

This is the app I was looking for

It is so stupid simple, but keeps those BWW files all organized... AND it has a lot of more complicated feature, such as metronome and adjusting of many aspects of playback. It comes with a good set of songs and easily integrates with Drop Box to add your own collection(=

Celtic Piper ,

Excellent - fun to practice with

I was looking for an iOS app for practice and learning and this is it. Lot’s of features for playback and editing. Simple integration with Dropbox for adding and storing files. Easy to use with adjustable tempo etc. Now I need to find a .bww exchange site. Kudos and thanks to the developer - good job!
