    "This seems like a great virtual piano app. You can play virtually any song and even compose your own music. There seems to be people complaining about too many ads though. "

    "This app has a number of ways to play and has various modes for keyboards. It has a USB MIDI allowing keyboards such as YAMAHA P105, Roland F-120, etc. and an online social environment Learn play option is good but the searching song is not available and the search could be improved. "

    "This is a really neat app for messing around. It's not that great if you're serious, but then, if you were, you'd just use a real keyboard, so I don't consider that a knock against it. I just wanted the ability to sample things - that was really fun for a while, and simple tools allow some surprisingly complex melodies. Try it!"

    "This is one of the most downloaded apps. A new version appears to have been recently released. The prior one appears to have been more popular in terms of default songs and other instruments for free with no requirements. Now the app contains a lot of advertisements that were not in the prior version and you have to buy to have certain instruments you had before? Another choice is Pianist HD : Piano +"

    "This is super fun. I love this idea. It's almost like playing air guitar, but with your phone. I like that you have a number of different instruments to choose from. My favorite is the piano. If you ever wanted to "learn" to play an instrument, here is your chance to pretend you are. Great for friends and small parties. "

    "This is really fun. There's tons of songs to play, and learn, and best of all, this app actually has taught me a little bit about music in the process of just messing around with it. I just play it for fun, but I think I'm actually learning which notes are high and low, where they are on a keyboard, and things like that. For something that I thought was going to be a little time-waster to play around with and make some tunes, I'm pretty impressed!"

    "Real piano does it's job so well, there have been youtube videos of people playing it as if there was an actual piano in front of them. Crystal clear sounds and quick touch reactions make this app perfect!"

    "My Piano Assistant is mean to help you learn chords but it is a rather cumbersome experience to use the app. I think the patterns could have had a better illustration method as it was a little confusing to learn the chords."

    "Piano HD doesn't do anything drastically different. That being said, it's a very easy, by your own pace style lesson layout so it feels like you're in control."

    "This app is so much fun! I love music, and it's fun to have a little sort of piano to fiddle around with if I'm stuck waiting somewhere. It keeps my kids occupied sometimes too, which is fun. I just wish my phone was bigger, so the screen was long enough to make for a better screen-piano key setup, but that's not the app's fault. Love it!"
