Amazing for IRL cats
I don't care for pianos. My coworker played this at work and I thought hysterical. I downloaded it and played it...and something amazing happened! My cat (his name's Beck) went nuts looking for the source of this sound. He came to me and PURRED and PURRED and was über affectionate. It was out of character for him. I now use this app nearly every other day to get my cat to come whenever I feel like having him around me. This is seriously the pied piper for cats.
My friend's cat in another apartment hisses at this app though. His cat is an outdoors/indoors cat, so I think another meow is a territorial threat, as opposed to my indoor-only cat's piqued curiosity.
This app is a must-try.
No sound - Fix
I'm an iPad nub with less than 1 week experience. Downloaded the free version of cat piano, but could not get any sound. All my settings seemed ok and other apps have sound. It turns out the iPad 1 has a physical slide switch on it's side near the volume control. Slide this to the up position (no orange dot) and the app has sound. So this must be a mute switch which is at the developers option to obey or not.
Observation - iOS users are good at reporting problems, but not offering solutions. Many others have had the no sound issue.
No sound? Here is the fix
If you have no sound, here is the trick for an iPad. Go to settings and choose the slide switch from the lock rotation to mute. Make sure that you then switch the slide back and forth until it is not in the mute status. That will allow this app to work. You can then go back to the setting to lock rotation.
I wish the app developer would add this as a hint. There would be a lot more happy customers.
