Good app Extra features would make it even better and a better log of progress not just a graph so you can aim to improve and beat previous score

Brilliant, thank you, in bed at mo, unable to use my piano, just found the app and enjoying using it. Clever idea, let's face it music is a complicated subject this makes it fun.
Almost perfect
by Sticklebrick82 on 2016/03/03 10:18
This app is great but if only it had the ability to "hear" notes via the microphone. Then it could be used with a real piano or other instruments. This would be perfection. The one finger jab technique is unrealistic.
Good practice
by Dwsycamore on 2015/07/22 20:35
A good way of practising reading music without having to plonk on wrong notes!

All I wanted was something quick and easy to use to help improve my note recognition. This is perfect.
Ok
by Stuhs on 2014/11/28 22:41
but I found it a bit of a strain on my eyes. Not sure how much it would help me reading for piano, but to be fair it's just a note recognition app. Try the free one and see if it suits.

This is a good app.However,I feel it would benefit by having more(deeper & higher)ledger lines rather than so many 8va.abbreviations,I think because of this it is more suitable for beginners.Perhaps this can be amended in an upgrade.

At 50 I'm totally new to playing the piano and reading music. Some of the books and apps are aimed at children so at least this isn't. Finding it very helpful so far. ( why do I have to have a nickname?)
This is really helping me
by Docta Jonez on 2014/08/11 17:16
Sight reading is my Achilles heel and has been for a long time. This app is really helping my speed and accuracy.
Love it

Great learning tool, used this after reading a theory page on wikihow and am finally making real progress.

Thought it would teach me to sight read . No explanation haven't got a clue what to do with it.
Seems good
by Troterpot on 2013/12/24 10:00
Early days but this app has 2 staffs as seen on all piano music and as such when it jumps from one to another you now where you are either bass or Treble unlike some other apps this should make your learning progress a lot better without any irritations. I am very pleased with this so far and from a short dive into its other depths it has a lot to give the learner to a very advanced level of understanding hope I get that far

I love this, it really helps with my sight reading practise.
Very good
by Videojetman on 2013/08/07 04:35
I would have given 5 stars but i find the keys on this app are a bit too small, so errors are easy to do. But apart from this it is a very good app, and in time i think it will help with note recognition.
Easy to use, good for learning notes

Great App
by Photomegus on 2013/06/04 20:56
Only complaint being it asks for a review too early; I've barely started using it. First impressions are good. It's easy and fun, belying its seemingly daunting graphics (I'm a total newby to sight reading). It uses the base and treble clefs at the same time which I hadn't anticipated, but now I'm glad of it. Every time I've taken the challenge so far I've got faster and more accurate, so I guess it's working :). It can go to much higher skill levels than my current capability so I guess this will help varying abilities. Anyway, I'm going back to try again - enjoy!

Just what it says on the box
by AliHeadeach on 2013/01/27 14:44
My sight reading is so bad that although I can play piano learning anything new is a nightmare. So I decided to do something about it. This app seems to fit the bill completely and I was so impressed I bought the full version. I have quickly realised that my sight reading is even worse that I at first supposed, but will find this app handy as I can do the exercises anywhere and anytime and must eventually improve. Great app, thanks.

by YGKdystonia on 2013/01/27 13:54
Brilliant. Liked it as soon as I tried it. At least it's free. It's exactly what I have been looking for for a long time. Will see if the catch is worth purchasing if it comes.

by PhillipAlanEvans on 2013/01/23 22:54
I use this app frequently as a quick and easy way to learn the notation. I liked the app enough to pay for the full upgrade. It is useful, but, an extra payment is required to get rid of the adverts, which seems a bit mean on the part of the designer. I recommend this to anyone who is learning the notes on the stave.
Does exactly what it says on the tin
by nachtzeit on 2013/01/20 23:56
Pretty self explanatory. Does the job. Not the prettiest app in the world. Looks a Commodore 64 program for some reason. I use it and it works. Google a couple of hints on how to memorise the lines and spaces. You'll notice the difference after a day.
Great

Good fun, excellent refresher on bass cleft
Ok until you upgrade!
by Insouciant6 on 2012/10/16 15:38
This app is quite good until you upgrade and want a wider range of notes to practice with. If you do, you not only have to think of the note, you also have to manually switch to different parts of the keyboard that contain the note. This introduces a distorted element to the process and teaches you nothing about where lower and higher notes are on a real piano. The programmers haven't bothered to shrink the keyboard to fit or pan automatically to the relevant range of keys. So basically, the app is good in its free form for beginners but a waste of money otherwise.

by BK2345 on 2012/10/14 08:06
Excellent app. Just keep repeating to eradicate errors. Software seems to recognise weak spots in knowledge, representing the notes until it is learned.
Great! Confused by octave keybord tho
by sophie34 on 2012/09/29 23:04
Great little app. Have used 'Fastkeys' on laptop with mouse, which is good, but this is great! Just one thing..me being stupid?......I don't see the purpose of the octave keyboard below -sorry. Otherwise - great for practice.

Lovely little app for getting your ear in as looking at music has no meaning to me except for the words. Now I am starting to hear what the notes sound like that go with the words.
Very helpful
by Music returns on 2012/07/26 20:53
Very very good. It's been 25 years since I read music and within 10 mins of this, it's flooding back! Am delighted, thanks.
Really helps
by Lordbaz on 2012/07/23 09:29
Really helps to reinforce. Stops you counting up the lines with mnemonics egbdf etc. particularly with the keyboard helps identify position and seems to learn and then teach you accordingly.
Very Good
by trigger1951 on 2012/07/21 14:53
As a mature person, decided to learn to read music so far this is the best app I have found for the job. Easy to use and speeds your reading. Very Good

by BonnyMaid on 2012/02/20 10:09
Nice feature is the full keyboard. Does not always register note played which is annoying. Good app for absolute beginner. You need to purchase full version to get keys other than c major.
A miracle!

Not Bad!
by Eagle-20 on 2012/01/20 18:23
Very simple but quite effective. Could do with some refinement, maybe a multiplayer option, and a better rendered keyboard. A bit cheeky to ask 69p to clear ads after you have already paid for the full app at £2.99. Definite potential here, hopefully the developer will continue to support this app.
