Our Rating: 3/5 | Price: Free | Visit Apple Store Link

This is a fun musical app which is as portable as your iPhone and you can take it anywhere you like. The app can be downloaded on multiple devices to make a touch piano band. The app allows you to play individual notes or chords. This app only has one octave which is very low pitched. Also the black and white keys in the piano can be too small for some people as they may play the song of the adjacent key if you are not accurate, so i would not recommend this app for people with big fingers. Also since it has one octave it may not have all the keys that you will require to play a song.
