If you're passionate about keyboards, here's an app you'll love. With xPiano you can access a piano with up to four octaves, on which you can practice your favorite melodies and songs. It includes different variations of instruments, so you'll be able to feel the delicacy of an acoustic piano, the majesty of an organ, and the magic of a synthesizer all within the same app.
Aside from playing your favorite songs, you'll be able to give free reign to your creativity and record at the same time. Yes, this app has different modes, but also offers a vital feature that allows you to record and playback within the app itself. In this way, you can revise your own compositions within the app and save them in a folder specifically created for this purpose.
We haven't found any issues with the app, except that in order to run up and down the four octaves, you'll need to switch screens as the keyboard can't fit on one screen. It means that it's slightly uncomfortable if you want the freedom of a normal keyboard. Aside from that, the app is extremely effective, if a little basic.
