Ever thought about using your iPhone as a musical instrument? Well, now you can thanks to MiniPiano.
The app includes just one octave of a keyboard, which you can play simply by touching the keys on the screen. The keys have been gorgeously recreated and the full-screen keyboard is very easy to play (in the sense that the keys are touch-friendly, not that it will make you sound like Beethoven).
The sound reproduction in MiniPiano is excellent. In fact, if you turned up the volume on your device and started playing on the bus, people would think someone's smuggled a Fazioli on board.
Aside from having just one octave, one thing I felt was missing from MiniPiano was some kind of help for beginners. It could've been a nice learning aid had the developer included a setting to display notes on the keys, or added some kind of tutorial option.
If you're looking for a way to compose tunes on the way to work, MiniPiano makes for a sound choice.
