I have to hold one finger on the screen and play with the other to get the notes to "stick". You can control the tempo which makes it feel a lot more like actually playing an instrument compared to "tap on the rhythm" games. I love the simplicity of the app, it does one thing, and there's no bs points, score or whatever. If you like to play instruments and have the patience to learn the songs or have songs you already know in the app I recommend this app. Issues: it checks the Internet everytime to see if you bought it, so if you have no Internet or their servers are down the app does not unlock.
I used to love this app to death. I was able to pay for the extra songs at the time and enjoyed it until now. After a while the songs would get grated out by static until you restarted the whole app and now the app just crashes when you try to open it. Seems like the developer hasn't done anything on it since then. Another grab the money and run app. Avoid.
I've been playing this game on browser for awhile. It's super fun. Got the app once I had a phone that supported it, and bought all the songs right away. This app is terrible. Pressing on the lower screen is not loud at all, essentially making 3/4 of the screen useless. No held notes. Sounds tinny. Zero adjustable options. A real gem wrapped in garbage. What a shame.
Good on PC, terrible on Android You can play these songs on PC without having to pay. The touch features for note duration are crap in the app. It makes it sound like you're playing a glockenspiel. Every time you finish playing a song it loads a very loud ad that you have to wait 5 seconds to get out of. If you try to exit the ad early, the app tries to force you to buy the song pack you were just playing on. If you try to exit the song in the middle of playing, it exits the app entirely. Uninstalling.
Not worth it $12 is far too much for this mediocrity. It doesn't play well at all. The timing is off and the rhythm is practically guesswork! I would like my money back.
Fun as all getout I think 12 bux is a great deal for hours of great classical music, even if I couldn't play it. Aside from a little timing issues on the faster songs, its super fun! Please get some famous pieces from movie soundtracks.
