[prMac.com] Moscow, Russian Federation - Mikhail Eliseev, an independent mobile developer focused on musical apps, today announces the recent release of iPianoRoll for the iPad. Structured as a fun "falling notes" musical game, this imaginative app allows people to play their favorite music on their iPad via a virtual piano and can actually help them learn how to master the instrument as they play. Because users are able to open any MIDI files within the application the only thing that limits how many different songs they can play is their imagination and musical taste. iPianoRoll - for iPad only - is currently available for download on the Apple App Store for only $1.99.
This app was developed with the aim of being the most flexible and realistic piano game available on the App Store and through its design it has achieved exactly that. Users are given control over a fully functional mini piano and are provided with song-specific falling note cues which show them which piano keys to hit, simultaneously showing them how long each note should be held. To remain accessible to any level of piano enthusiast the app allows users to select which portions of songs they would like to play and practice, and the app's PlayItYourself feature will automatically play the remaining portions of each song by itself. Furthermore, a helpful "melody practice" mode allows players to see the notes they need to play highlighted directly on their piano keys in addition to the game's normal falling note cues. When taken together, iPianoRoll amounts to an intuitive musical experience that mimics the dynamics of real-world piano playing closely enough that the app transcends its gaming origins to become a fun, viable virtual piano learning experience that music lovers can enjoy anywhere and anytime.
Because this app allows users to open any MIDI files straight from their safari web browser, e-mail, or through iTunes, users quite literally have an infinite selection of music to choose from. They simply find their favorite songs and open them within iPianoRoll. This musical gaming experience boasts on of the most responsive and polished user interfaces of any piano themed app currently out on the App Store and provides users with a number of features to ensure that their playing experience is as easy and hassle-free as possible. The app includes automatic tempo adjustment so music speed is automatically adjusted to the speed at which users play it, and the app includes a number of high-quality sound samples that allow users to begin playing and learning on iPianoRoll's virtual keys the second they download it. Offering an imaginative mix of pure gaming excitement blended with an authentic mobile piano playing education, iPianoRoll is one app that is sure to never leave users anything short of satisfied.
