Little Piano for Android
If you like playing the piano, but don’t have one handy, then you should certainly give Little Piano, by XDA member pl.ayground, a shot. This app will simulate a small keyboard on your Android device which you can use to, well… play the piano. The app offers multi-touch support, so you will be able to play some of your favorite tunes easily. The app also comes with a few “teacher” tunes, that will allow you to do play along in case you are still learning how to play the piano.
The dev states that future versions will include more voices for the piano. So, if this is of interest to you, the dev would love to year some feedback regarding the app.
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.
You can find more information in the application thread.
