Default [App][Game] LittlePiano - testers welcome


I have recently created a Piano app which is available in Android Market as LittlePiano (free app).

It has 13 keys with multitouch interface.

The multitouch seem not to work great for two fingers nearby on HTC Desire - it is much better when they are not touching nearby keys.

Also - there is a "follow me" guide with few sample melodies.

I would highly appreciate a short test report on how it works on other devices.

Also if you want you can share your song (as long as it fits in 1 octave) using the following notation:
CDEFGAHV (this are the white keys)
cd fga v (this are the black keys)
please provide a title and if it seems a valid melody I will add it in some future releases.

Thanks in advance for all test reports!

Mulit-touch was non-existent for me. It was slow between key presses. Very simple UI which would be good for my kids. Not a bad start once you are able to figure out the multi-touch issue.

Thanks for feedback flashman. I am sorry to hear multitouch does not work for you. It works like charm on an HTC Desire I used for testing. Works = allows two touches at one go with only the issue the the phone does not match fingers location when they are nearby or when third is pressed.

Could you please elaborate more on the slowness you notice ... does sliding the finger from one side to another does not result in a nice passage and some keys do not play? Thank you for your help.

Also - anyone else with another device who is willing to share feedback? Thank you in advance!

Default just saw this and downloaded it!

I tried it on my rooted G2/vision with stock rom and it worked fine. Multi touch = 2 fingers and plays two different sounds and can slide finger across screen too!

...however some issues:
1)when 2 keys are pressed at same time one of them stays yellow but the other one turns back to normal color.

2)not sure if its the application or my phone speaker but hitting keys really fast and doing lots of multi touch produces a small crackle/snap sound at the end of some notes.

Otherwise a very good start! good luck!

Thanks CTR1 - it seems that each hardware works slightly different when it comes to multitouch.

Multitouch doesn't work on Samsung galaxy S can't be the harware and it doesn't work if I press the note one by one too fast

PS: To add more notes you could try to add a scroller that allow to scroll on a fulll keyboard

Multi-touch doesn't work. When two keys are pressed at the same time it only plays one key and that one stays yellow and locks up the app for a couple seconds before turning back to white and allowing further play. Sliding finger up and down keyboard is fairly responsive and smooth. Would also be nice if it allowed for playing of major and minor triads (aug. & dim. would be nice too).

Good start. Look forward to updates/fixes.

Looks like a great app. One thing though, it got 5 stars in market but no reviews? I tried to drop a review but can't seems to find the option that let me make a review.
