Kindle Fire Free App of the Day: Piano Melody Pro

Today's Free App of the Day is Piano Melody Pro
Originally $2.99

This isn't so much as "learn to play the piano" as "learn to pick out songs on the piano." I like that so many aspects of it are adjustable--key size, play along speed, how many notes are played at a time, whether the notes are highlighted, whether you can hit more than one key at once, whether the notes (C5, D5, etc) appear on the keys. The keyboard appears with a row of icons above it. You tap on the little piano icon to adjust the settings; the musical notes, to pick the song. "123" is for selecting the number of notes to play before giving you a chance to replicate them. After selecting the song, you hit the play button (2d from the left). You try to replicate the keys that are played, then press the check mark, it will tell you how you did. The screen will be pink if you made mistakes, green if you didn't, and will tell you to hit play to try again if you made mistakes. If you matched it, it will tell you to select play to start the next level, which will comprise the notes you just played, plus the next set. So, I had "1-5" picked (using the 123 icon), on my first set, the first five notes played. Once I had that done, the first ten notes played, so I had to replay the first five and then add the next five. Nicely done app if you want to learn some songs to noodle around with.

12 of 17 reviews are four stars and above.

These apps are compatible with the original Fire and with my Fire HD 8.9" 4G.
