New SimplePiano with Dual-Touch Enabled
There was an news story a little over a month ago about a certain app called SimplePiano (link to the story), which was, as its name states, a simple piano application with limited functionality. Unfortunately, the dev had to drop the project, but it was quickly picked up by XDA member zevele, who has been working on it. The dev just released his improved version 4.2, which among several fixes, it has dual-touch enabled. The app works with most versions of WM and it is designed for VGA and WVGA resolutions.
As the name suggests it’s a simple piano application. I took over “CrisRowlands SimplePiano” after Cris decided to give up developing it (Original thread: forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=669228). The main reason I took over is because I wanted to implement multitouch. I own HTC HD2 so my emphasize was on the WVGA format, but the application should also support VGA resolution. It should be pretty easy to create skins for other resolutions as well…
- WVGA & VGA versions.
- It has three octaves.
- Record and Playback.
- Dualtouch via the PinchToZoom events (not ideal but the best I could find…)
You can find more information in the application thread.

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
