  • Great app! Jul 12, 2020

    By asus-fanyt
    I am trying to learn piano and it has been pretty difficult to learn online, but this app has helped soooo much. Within two days I already know all of the major and minor chords! I definitely recommend this app!

  • Extremely helpful and I wish I found it sooner!! Oct 30, 2018

    Within the time that I have discovered this application to now i can already tell how valuable of a resource this is going to be, especially taking university level music classes. Any struggling student just take the time to look for other resources to develop the necessary skills and with so much information to learn it can be an extremely daunting task. However Piano Companion has all that information and more within the basic version alone, including a virtual piano, Chord Progression generator, and even a Chord Dictionary! The only suggestion I have is redesigning the presentation of the info, particularly in the Chord Dictionary section where it has lots of helpful things like piano diagram of the chords along with quality and an audio snippet of said chord when tapped on, however there is an overwhelming amount of information all at once when taking into account the diatonic chords, 9th, 13th chord, etc. When i opened the app initially i was immediately intimidated by it but after really looking through it i was able to decipher what i needed vs what was there because it simply exists. Cutting out the fluff with help streamline the use of the app and the user will have a much more straightforward experience, no explanation or intimidation (ideally). Still overall I believe this application will give me the boost i need in my classes and really improve/expand my knowledge as a musician. 10/10 would recommend.

    This is an amazing piano app for piano beginners. Professionals can reference it too, as it contains many scales for music magic runs and solos

    If your are learning to play piano, get this app. Pay the extra two bucks for the full version. It has helped me so much so quickly. Learning chords, scales, etc. cheaper than a year of lessons lol

    When I try to change the key to basic G major to look for scales it directs me back to C for some reason whether it’s by accident or on purpose. This app is broken

  • Wasted my money Feb 16, 2016

    By Mongo2112
    I bought the Pro upgrade thinking I could easily chart out songs. Every time I try to put in the notes I need, it gives me pages of alternative chords and won't just takes the notes that I know are correct. I get it that this is a benefit for some, but when you need a simple way to get a song charted verbatim, this is useless. I don't need theory or inversions, I need to chart chords. I wasted $5. I don't care about the money as much as the need for a tool to get work done. I have a pile of songs to learn and I don't read staff or know piano. I just know what I hear and can play it. I just need to chart it and move on... Any apps out there that can do this?

  • Major 7 is missing, midi save not working Jun 4, 2017

    By Tmidiman
    I was really hoping this would be the piano app I was looking for. I create my own chords and I need a mind I file when I'm done. Imagine my surprise when I found they didn't even have a major 7 chord in their dictionary. I tried to add one, it shows it's there, but it's not available in progressions. Then there was no midi export as they stated, well the button doesn't work. I don't mind paying top dollar for a good app, if it works. This One's not there yet.

    The first thing I tried to do was change the root note and it said I needed to upgrade to do it. Unless your dream is to only be able to hear a C Major, don't waste your time

  1. A flexible piano chords and scales dictionary with user libraries, reverse mode, the circle of fifths, and chord progression builder
  2. Over 10,000 scales and 1500 chords at your fingertips for easy reference during practice, composing, and more
  3. Smart technology uses your MIDI keyboard as your search engine - just hit a note or chord and the search pulls up possibilities

    Good app for piano learning reference. Could be better if theres a music sheet view of the note/chord played

  • Crash issue - chord progression key change Dec 18, 2018

    By Werdrath
    Great app in theory, but very confusing and many many pages to get lost in while just trying to get a couple chords noted down. Takes some getting used to

    Very useful tool for finding chords and countless other features. The basic (free) version is all many need, although after using it for a year or so I am getting the full version. It takes a little time to learn how to use it but to be a better musician it is well worth it. Recommended.

    Not a very intuitive design! Good reference material, and I haven't really found any inaccuracies, but I would prefer to see a scholarly notation, not a jazz notation, in chord names. That said, great for reference, but it doesn't really do anything. I needed a chord progression mapper, and this isn't it. I can find other apps that do the same. Just cumbersome.

  • It is not that grate Aug 13, 2020

    By So dear/real name lily
    You can not play a song that involves the end of the piano and middle keys at the same times but you can record tour song or ya but eser way a real piano is better .

  • Good, but am I missing something? May 3, 2013

    By State00
    Very cool, awesome to compile chords when on the go without an instrument. But am I missing something? Every time I hit a chord in the dictionary, it takes me to a details screen. Makes it annoying to go back and forth when you're comparing chords. Does the pay version allow you to stay on the main dictionary screen and strike chords in sequence without taking you to the details?
