Expert's Review

"No patience for piano practice? This is your app!"

Reviewed by / Jan 08, 2014

Tap your way through instantly recognizable pop, rock, and classical hits

So you want to play the piano, yet you're not interested in investing the time and effort it would take to actually do so. There's an app for that! Magic Piano by Smule offers a way to tickle the ivories without having to learn a thing about reading music - all you need is a sense of rhythm and a pair of tapping fingers.

Notes are represented by glowing lights that ease their way over time to the bottom of the screen, where tapping them at the appropriate moments will result in the production of familiar melodies. Your choice of songs is limited at first, but as you earn coins through practice, you'll be able to unlock further instantly recognizable pop, rock, and classical hits. Haven't you always wanted to bang out a piano version of Gangnam Style?

Earning new songs can feel frustratingly slow, though, since with a real piano you'd simply have access to all the notes at any time that you pleased. There's the in-app option to purchase further ditties, of course, should you feel impatient enough to dole out real cash for access to a tappable Call Me Maybe. Forget about adding your own flourishes, too - the playing mechanism has been so far simplified from the experience of actually playing the piano, you're also forced into conforming with the precise tempo decided upon by the app.

Magic Piano by Smule is perhaps a thrill for those who have always had vague interest in playing the piano but never had the chance. However, the lack of flexibility in playing style and song choice will make it too restricted of an experience for anyone seeking something more musically compelling.
