Piano For You is virtual piano for Android

Piano For You is a full keyboard piano with 88 keys, including key labels and sustain pedal. It supports multitouch (Android 2.0 or later) and lets you perform some interesting features.

First, it allows you to record your takes. What's more, there's an option for two stacked rows. You can select the "area" you want to play and zoom in it. Scroll it by pulling down device's top edge or using trackball.

It's a good looking piano with the needed features. The sound could be improved though, as well as the latency, that makes it a bit laggy.

Piano For You has been developed by Pavel Alexeev, an individual developer who's doing a great job specially with this app, taking in account that he doesn't have the resources of a developing company.

We have to say that, from our point of view, the sound could be improved. However this isn't a Steinway & Sons and it doesn't aim to be. This is just a tool to entertain you or to "save your ass" just in case that inspiration comes when you are on your way. If you like playing piano or what to learn, this is truly recommendable.

Piano For You is suitable for professional musicians as well as for learning piano. Many vocalists use it to track pitch. Composers use Piano For You to record their musical ideas on the go. You should try it too :)

Latency is a real pain on Android devices, but I've done all I can. If you find a piano app with lower latency, I'll give you the full version for free, with your name in the credits :)
Note: latency is much better on recent devices.

Additional HQ instruments (Rhodes Piano, Accordion and Church Pipe Organ) are paid, but hey, there are no ads!
You can also support me buying a full version - it includes all the instruments and missed features.

Permissions:
- WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE is for exporting your piano recording in .wav format and instruments download
- WRITE_SETTINGS is for setting recording as a ringtone
- INTERNET is for instruments download (rhodes piano, accordion and organ)
- BILLING is for in-app purchases
- CHANGE_NETWORK_STATE is for MIDI over WiFi
- CHANGE_WIFI_MULTICAST_STATE is for MIDI over WiFi
- ACCESS_WIFI_STATE is for MIDI over WiFi
- RECORD_AUDIO is for recording samples

Recently changed in this version

1.3.1
- Meet the new icon!
- Don't show annoying help messages about menu & lock buttons.
- Fix .wav export with 48000Hz samples.
- Fix a bug when sustain pedal to overlaps side menu button.
- Other bug fixes and improvements.

I can't test my app on every Android device, so please, email me if something doesn't work as expected!

    For anyone who wants to learn to play the piano, this app is absolutely fantastic. Settings can be adjusted to show what the musical keys are, so it's very easy to use with a musical score. It can be adjusted to show where both hands go, or for beginners just the right hand. It's also able to compose music & save it to the phone (or a computer). Thanks for a great app!
