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.

High cost, poor performance

Worst! App! EVER!

Developers of this app should read this:

I have recently subscribed to this app for 2 three month periods of about $45, but I am shocked to know that there are so many issues! I paid $90 in total for this app, and I was surprised to learn that it STILL can't recognize the keys I'm playing! The keys I am playing are the correct keys. However, for some reason the app can't recognize or sense them and then marks them wrong, and I am constantly made to do the practice mode even though it was the app's fault for not recognizing my notes! It's really hard to make any progress in this app, because it can't even recognize the correct notes being played! How am I supposed to improve my piano skills if the app won't let me progress? I'm just wasting my money and NOT even learning how to play!

Another thing is that once you have completed the course, you should be able to go back to them and replay them EVEN if your subscription has expired! I shouldn't have to be charged just to replay the courses I already completed before the subscription period ended! That's ridiculous! The developer of this app shouldn't be charging so much to subscribe if there are all of these issues! These are very big cons! It honestly should be way cheaper, if not free!
