Piano Diary features

What's New in Version 1.5
- Performance improvements.
- Bug fix.
Following issue is fixed from iOS 5.1. For those using iPhone 4S, please update your iPhone to iOS 5.1.
- When i-MX1 is left connected to the iPhone 4S for a while, the network connection drops.
Comically outdated app
This app hasn't been updated in over four years; it is apparently completely unsupported by Yamaha US. Ironically, there is a frequently updated version of this in the Japanese App Store that is unavailable in the US. That supports all of the new Yamaha hardware I recently purchased; this version does not.
Forced to log in via facebook or Twitter
There is no way to use this app without logging in thru social media. I should be able to create and save midi recordings without connecting to Facebook.
Please add landscape support so you can tilt iPad/iPhone sideways
