  • The Correct Note Recongization

    By Folklore 24
    The development team really needs to work on setting up a system on the app's audio mic that can tell uwhich sound, tempo, to set the pinao in or something to here the right note cause the note just keep passing on and on and messes up the experience. I enjoy the apps i iust wish the pinao was extreme perfect of the notes picking up on the sound coming from a digtital pinao.
  • I love this!

    I need this for a assignment for music and I think this is the best one out there and I’m not the most best at the piano but it is similar to violin so it should be similar to people who are in orchestra

    Ok, I never write reviews... like ever, but this app deserves it. I am completely new to piano, never have taken a lesson in my life and while I have been trying, I couldn’t play with two hands to save my life, that is until I found this app. Even though I have only played through a little bit of the beginner songs, I CAN FINALLY PLAY WITH TWO HANDS!!!!! I have tried everything, besides a teacher because I like to learn by myself, and this app is the only thing so far that has helped me to play simultaneously with two hands, and actually play the piano well. It allows you to go at your own pace and slow songs down, and while it’s a little pricy, heck, I might even buy a subscription. So to all my newbies who also have no idea how to play and are loosing hope, this app helped me, and although you can only access a few songs before buying a subscription, I recommend it for the short time you can use it before it blocks off.

    The wait mode functionality on this app is quite frustrating. This is the mode in which the song waits until you hit the right key before moving on. Without MIDI functionality on your keyboard you are stuck with it trying to recognize sounds through your phone mic. There is no keyboard calibration setup or anything to let the app know what sound corresponds to what key on your keyboard. So if your piano is slightly out of tune or if you have a cheap electronic keyboard like myself, it has a hard time picking up certain notes. This severely disrupts my flow during a song when I have to repeat a key until it finally recognizes, or it randomly skips notes sometimes. As a beginner i find the sections that are hardest to learn are the ones were I have to repeat notes because it cannot properly recognize them. Also if I search a song that I would like to play, i can’t add it to “my songs” to save it for later. It appears that you can only save songs to your list if you so happen to come across it going through the songs tab and clicking through categories and scrolling forever trying to find the song you want to save. Very inconvenient. Much to be desired after paying $100 for this app....

    This app is so helpful because it asks if you have played piano before so then you stay on track with the songs!

    I like the app so I payed for the premium but it’s still not giving me access to the rest of the course and the songs.

    I decided to learn piano as a fun, low-pressure hobby about five years ago and went out looking for some online resources. But a lot of other apps lock you out of learning actual songs until you finish drills and learn to read sheet music. At most, they let you learn a particular piece of a song at the end of a session. A lot of them also make you watch through videos. These didn’t work for me because I really wanted piano to just be fun rather than homework. It was hard sticking with regular practice when I knew I’d be playing up and down the same five notes just to get to a song I wasn’t even that interested in. I totally see the usefulness of a structured program and I feel like the course section of Flowkey provides that for people who want it, but personally, it was so much more motivating when I could actually learn to play a song I was excited about. With flowkey, you don’t need to know how to read sheet music (though, I did have a basic understanding of musical notation when I started) to learn a song. The video of the person actually playing helps guide you on proper finger positions. There’s lots of functions to help you learn, too, especially the waiting function and ability to isolate pieces of the song and repeat them. I can honestly say that I have gotten so much better just by learning songs. I can now play “hard” songs that seemed completely unattainable when I started. A few caveats: I do think the app is only useful with a paid subscription. I also can’t speak in detail about the course function because I haven’t used it very much. It seemed very similar to other online piano courses. The marking of the songs (easy, intermediate, hard, etc) is sometimes inconsistent (especially when it comes to “partner” songs, IMO) and I wish there was the ability to organize songs you’ve saved in the favorites section. I’d love to be able to isolate songs I’ve already learned, for instance, so I can find them easier when I want a refresher. All in all, I honestly don’t think I would have stuck with the piano as long as I have if I hadn’t found flowkey. I would definitely recommend trying it for a month or so and seeing if it works for you, too.

  • DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY until The note detection is fixed

    By Tom Almquist
    I would love this app. But right now I am seriously regretting spending $100 for a year of this service. It lets you have the first lesson for free, where the notes are super simple and easy to pick up. But as soon as you go into any lessons beyond it—I’m only on the second lesson, playing with both hands—it just becomes frustrating. There are so many times that I have to play a note 5-7 times before this program picks it up. It has become a serious hindrance for me learning the piano. I thought is was my case blocking the iPad mic, but even when my iPad is naked the note recognition is just terrible. I’ve given up on this app. I’ve just gone back to YouTube videos/sheet music and I’m already having a much better experience learning the piano. I want my money back.
  • Good but could be better

    This app taught me so much things but the wait mode. When you have to play the same note but ones higher then the other it still counts it so I do something low then the next note that’s the same it skips it

  • Bad Audio Recognition

    2
    By kentahallis
    I purchased a 1 month membership for Flowkey, and at this point I don’t feel it was worth it due to the poor note recognition/clumsy software. I get false reads/misreads fairly regularly, so whether it be I’m jamming the correct key until it hears me and I can proceed with the song, or it proceeds through a part I’m playing incorrectly (or not at all), it’s always frustrating and I don’t feel like I’m getting much out of it. This is particularly prevalent in two-handed learning. I know it’s a software issue because Yousician, which does virtually the same thing, proceeds almost flawlessly every time under identical circumstances. This is probably because it has an actual calibration menu, unlike Flowkey—maybe Flowkey expects you to be playing on an actual piano, whereas I’m on a smaller electric keyboard. It’s too bad, as Flowkey does feel like the more formally instructive option, but I must say I’m disappointed.
  • Pretty Awesome

    If you piano was hard at first, this app really breaks in down in sections that works for you. Even if don’t have an actual keyboard it and you are using a virtual one l, the app can detect which notes are what. If you are really into piano whether you’re a beginner or an amateur, you should download this app.
  • Rare that I review an app

    My 9YO asked if he could take piano lessons, and I said if he taught himself a few songs on a Yamaha keyboard (easier to get rid of than a real piano) we’d agree. Yamaha included a free trial of this app with the keyboard. Fast forward two years and we’ve got a keyboard on every floor of the house, and a Yamaha U3 upright piano in the playroom. He loves learning new songs (recently Undertale themes and Super Mario) and it’s wonderful to hear live music throughout the house. App does remarkably well hearing notes/pitch/octave from the U3, and we use the MIDI interface with the Apple USB connector for the keyboards; keeps iPad charged and he can also use headphones while playing. All these features work flawlessly. Granted, a great deal is up to the pianist, but this app was the gateway to what I suspect will be a lifetime of enjoyment for my son. Needless to say, I eventually purchased the lifetime subscription.
  • There’s only -Experienced or -Completely New options...

    By Cdeanme
    I can play mediocre two hand with YouTube tutorials backing me up but actually know little about the piano itself. I can play decent Faded - Alan Walker, and His Theme - Toby Fox, but of course select -No Experience, and it’s faaar too slow. I imagine Experienced however would contain terms and such I’m new to, what do I do? It’s just either too slow or uncovered material. Can there be a faster version in-between the two initially presented options?

    By nicoandtheduners
    i’ve been looking everywhere to find a good piano app that teaches me how to play. yes, i can play all the notes in c position because thats all you get taught for free. i thought this app would be better than simply piano but they’re both useless unless you spend around 100 dollars. this app looks really nice and it looks like it can teach me a lot about piano but im just not willing to pay 100 dollars.

    I love the app, so much that we bought the one year premium subscription but the app says purchase failed yet iTunes shows the subscription and the money have come out of the account. I will update this review once this gets fixed and will add the stars that this app deserves once fixed. Thanks very much for the response!!!

    This is a bait and switch app that makes me see red. If they were just honest upfront I wouldn’t be so irritated. Because I feel I was tricked there’s no way I’m going to give them any money. I think they have a good quality product very unethical he sold!

I stopped looking for a while then I found this one and not only the app is free but everything in the app is free!!! It thought me how to read notes everything best app ever!

  • I need help about the premium membership

    By Lovveed
    After using this app for free for several months loving it. I decided to purchase one year premium plan so I purchased $94.99 one year membership. For some reason, It isn’t allowing me to access all the premium stuffs So I thought maybe the purchase has been mistakenly disrupted so I went back to purchase it again but it says that I am currently already subscribed to year plan. After getting that message I clicked “Okay” button and it says that purchase has been failed. I am like what is going on! Please help me with this problem I really want to play premium songs and learn musics. Don’t let me down :c

  • Not what I had hoped for

    By colleen0523
    So let me begin by saying I have been taking piano lesson from a teacher for 3yrs and this app is not something I would consider dumping my teacher for. The scrolling songs are interesting but to difficult to keep up with to learn the songs. If you are new to piano you will probably not catch on. I can read notes and play piano pretty well and I had trouble. The catch for me was they don’t allow you to download the songs and print them out. You have to go to another website and pay 6 dollars per song more if you want an actual copy of the song. A hard copy of the songs is important for learning the song so you can go at your own speed and not the speed the site sets for you. Even at a 50% speed can be to fast for a beginner. This is not a site I will continue to use. I will look elsewhere.

    After purchasing I now realize there’s no option button to correct pitch recognition. It doesn’t register that I’m hitting G unless I wait a second before hitting it. It’s very frustrating if you’re working on timing. I’ve tried emailing to get a refund but haven’t heard back yet.
  • Okay

    By JimmyAll
    All of the songs are locked by premium, it makes no sense at all to make a piano app and then grab money for “premium songs” like if I ant to know a song,I would gladly do so but I just had to be hit back with the unlock button,not recommended

    I'm a boy who is 9 years old and I didn't even know how to play the song happy birthday correctly and when I pushed the wrong keys I would rage.But when I was on YouTube I found this app called Flowkey I installed it and now I can play songs better than I could ever imagine.

    I have not played the piano/keyboard for over 30 years. My husband gave me a new keyboard this Christmas. I’m so thrilled! Now I need some refresher course. With so many piano apps available I am not sure which one to try but somehow I happen to choose Freeway. So far I am happy with it. Okay now can I play and and do some review later? 😉

    I just knew that in this day and age something would be able to listen and have me play along with my new piano. I don’t know how to play but like soccer, I’m prepared to do it a lot. This app, once you become skilled enough, will actually teach you famous songs and ones you want to learn. That’s the truly fun part of learning any instrument. BRILLIANT.
  • Almost Perfect

  • Songs I’ve practiced disappear!

    By Grwsflwrs
    Not very happy with this app due to the fact that songs I have been practicing and feeling somewhat confident with are disappearing !! I’ve contacted technical support and they tell me those songs needed to be updated to meet their new standards. What’s seems to me is, once you get comfortable with a song now they want you to pay for the version of it on a sheet music website! NOT HAPPY!
  • Premium didn’t work

    I paid for a monthly premium version for $20 and it didn’t unlock any of the premium content for me. Tried deleting it downloading it again to no avail. My credit card shows the transaction and my Apple account shows I have a membership on it but the app won’t let me use any of the premium features. Looks like they stole $20 from me.
