Exactly matching the layout of Hohner's Cajun IV diatonic accordion in the key of C, this intuitive virtual accordion app feature a super responsive, one-row fingerboard that plays and sounds like the traditional 4-reed (LMMH) instrument.
Both the treble and bass/chord sides of the instrument are provided.
The Hohner Cajun Mini-SqueezeBox allows musicians to practice chord combinations, scales, and songs on-the-go. Headphones can be used for private practice, or the audio output of the virtual accordion can be amplified by plugging into computer speakers, or other sound enhancing devices.
To play, simply touch the buttons.
This type of accordion plays different notes on the push or pull of the bellows.
To switch between bellows push and pull, just touch anywhere in bellows or bass side. Touch to switch to push notes, lift to switch to pull notes.
When playing the bass-side buttons, you can touch between the buttons to operate the bellows.
Touch the '?' icon to show the note names for each button.
Bug fixes and performance improvements for faster playing.

Useful little app
I was interested in purchasing a one row melodeon to play Polkas on, but I was unsure how they are played. I decided to look for a melodeon app that I could use to familiarize myself with a real melodeon, and to see if I could port my piano knowledge to a melodeon. It turns out that melodeons are both easier, and funner to play than pianos. This app has very good sound quality, and I highly recommend you get this app if you are thinking about getting a melodeon in the key of C. It is very easy to both sound out, and improvise polkas on the melodeon.
Not Worth It
The app was better before they had the update for it. The update added the bass buttons and completely changed the way the app looked, sounded, and took away options you had with the old version. The old version was WAY better because it sounded like actual accordions and you could go from a C accordion to a D accordion. You also had the option to have it Wet or Dry tuned. Was it worth it then, YES!! Is it worth it now, NO!!! I think they should bring back the old version because it looks more like a Cajun accordion, sounds like one, and you have more options with it.
I really like this app. I'm an accordion player and don't have any experience with button accordions but this app is a great beginning to understand the layout and how it's played. Now I really want to buy the real thing haha Cheers!!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
