  • Beware auto renew

    By mollycoco3
    I signed up for the free trial. There is no feature for multiple users which was annoying. I had two older children that wanted to use it. I didn’t realize that my free trial was up and I got billed $100 for a year long plan. So beware, the default setting is a year-long plan, not the monthly plan for auto renew. I got right on and canceled the subscription, and asked for a refund from Apple. I got an automated response saying that I did not qualify for a refund. After contacting the company they said they could do nothing. So now I paid $100 for a product that I will not be using. Very frustrating!
  • Too many tooltips.

    It is so annoying that this app continuously launches those little blue boxes of text. Sometimes to deliver incredibly irrelevant tips. My hands are on the keyboard and I have to lift them to escape these messages that are blocking the actual musical content I am here to ingest. What was your UX team thinking?

  • Doesn’t work like it should

    By tortilibilly
    The app won’t register notes and keeps saying the note I’m playing is wrong when I’m playing it right next to the microphone with an electric keyboard. I’ve tried turning up the volume, there’s no (loud) noise around me, and I’ve tried exiting the lesson and app together, and it still won’t work. I tried contacting staff through the conversation feature and said they would be back tomorrow. When playing with the app, it got kind of confusing when the segment of the piece restarted, as it suddenly went off beat with the tempo given in the beginning.

  • Simple but expensive lessons

    By maskedman991
    The lessons are great, very good for starters to learn and adapt to playing piano. The lessons seem to be a bit expensive and in my perspective there should be some offers or deals to continue on taking the lessons. There are many applications, websites to learn piano from but it would be amazing if the app can be exceptional in terms of prices and lessons.

    I could barely evaluate the app because everything is locked. the few lessons released in beginner mode are not enough to test the app.

  • Great but can be improved

    By Khalid G.
    An amazing app with a lot of potential and I have learned quite a bit so far. However, there are some issues that I have noticed. This first thing is when I open the app, it asks me to login every time and I have to go through the process of logging into Facebook. The second thing that can be improved are the bugs when I play along with the animation, it often does not follow the keys and the sounds play at different times.
  • good but

    By solidocean
    it would be better if it had a setting to calibrate your mic input to my pianos notes. i have an old piano and it’s a half step off key. hard to use the app if the keys don’t match what the app hears.

    At first it worked very well but the app is now buggy and the audio is terrible as it won’t register the keys I hit, app needs fixing
  • Great app except......

    By fardhdkfstskktsdly
    I love this app. It is a very good way to learn piano but sometimes it can’t hear what your playing so you have to press your key a lot of times before you can move on. This is VERY annoying. Overall though pretty good app.
  • Great app, great support

    By Wendell Borton
    The app has helped me begin learning piano. It works. Also, for my iPhone, it was more useful to buy a midi-lightning cable. To hear the app with the cable plugged in, make sure your vibrate switch is set to “ring”.

    This app would get stuck every time I was actually able to log in. $90.00 and I couldn’t even log in without trying at least 5-7 times just for it to get stuck every time. MY ACCOUNT HAD BETTER NOT BE CHARGED!!!!!!!

    I’ve never left a bad review on apple before but I really wish I could get my money back. I purchased the 1 year subscription for over $100 and the app didn’t retain the lessons that I did (over an hour), won’t keep me logged in and now the app won’t even open. Lesson learned...
  • Very difficult to use

    2
    By Sunddbrunch
    The app will NOT remember your progress! It will tell you that you have yet reached lesson 2 when you’ve already completely all the lessons in the whole series. It also won’t recognize some notes on the piano even though I have a very standard brand new piano. It won’t recognize certain notes no matter how loud I play them. This makes it impossible to play fluently, or to play with any rhythm in mind because you are forced to repeat certain notes otherwise the sheet won’t progress. This and the fact that they don’t provide full sheets of music but the app only progresses by listening to you make it very ANNOYING to practice with. There’s also no rewind button so forget about returning to a certain segment to practice more. Overall very poorly designed and difficult to use.
  • Asks for too much...

    By asdfghjklouvddbh
    Asks for too much info before they allow you to try the app (pain in the a55). Email address, name, subscription. I feel they do this in hopes that you will forget or not know cancel the subscription. Very annoyed with this sketchy scam mentality.

    I’m playing keys on the staff correctly but it’s asking me to play a different note, and it doesn’t seem to be keeping up with the melody. I’m an intermediate player and tried on the first lesson with same result.

  • Terrible

    By kfejfiehrjjvrivrjrij
    I got this app thinking that I would use it every day. NOPE. You can only play three songs but you can actually only play one of them because the other songs are intermediate and hard. I recommend that you don’t download this app unless you are willing to pay.☹️😠

    Do not get this app!!!! You can play 1 thing and that is all!!! I am so mad that Everyone was saying that this is a five star rating app and it is not. The app is good at listening to what notes you are playing but I find myself going faster than the app is going and it will not read my music because of that.(also I am just a beginner) I am very frustrated that you get a app like this and are very excited for it and then it is a awful app. Don’t waste your time on this one.ALL IT IS ABOUT TO THEM IS MONEY!!!!!😱😱😱😨😨😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢 PS I was excited for this app for only 5 minutes.(The five minutes was before I got it) you’ll have fun in the first one minute of the app and then it all goes downhill with them asking for money multiple times nothing else is unlocked. I’m not trying to be rude I’m just trying to save people from having to do the same thing that I went through!!
  • The listening portion is horrible.

    By Rowandator
    Half the time it doesn’t pick up the correct notes when trying to learn. Very frustrating. It hurts more than it helps. There should also be a section with just the notes and no play along or listening. They also won’t refund your money even if you’re dissatisfied. Wouldn’t purchase again.
  • Great tunes

    Skoove offers so much more than other apps. I used it after not playing for over 40 years. I was able to become advanced again using it 1/2 hour daily for 6months. When my 12 year old granddaughter visits, she tinkers with it and was able to play many songs in just a few days. I highly recommend this app.
  • Wonderful for a Beginner

    I’m 60 years old and want to play piano for enjoyment. I purchased Skoove and Flowkey. I started with lessons in both and find both very good. I find the lessons in Skoove very doable and have made good progress in about 6 weeks. I can read music and play songs with both hands. I love it! I practice every day because I want to improve. I would give 5 stars if I could slow down playing with the band and increase the speed once I became more proficient. I find the transition from practicing to the band too challenging. I also find the messages that appear while playing can be distracting and sometimes block my view of the music. I appreciate the feedback for my playing but they appear in the middle of my playing sometimes. I like the way music theory is taught through the lesson in playing, connecting the concept to piano playing instead of separately. The arrangements for beginner level are very good and are enjoyable to play. I wish there were longer versions to play outside of lessons for practice and enjoyment. I would also like more holiday music at this level. Overall, it is a great app and I love connecting my iPad to my Yamaha keyboard through a midi cord for accuracy, although I found it also works fairly well through the microphone.

    I always wanted to play the piano but never had the opportunity to take lessons as a child. Now, as a senior, I decided it was not too late. I downloaded several piano apps but found this one the best. This app has it all. The systematic way the lessons are presented makes it simple, easy and fun to learn. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this app and how thrilled I am to finally be able to play something other than chop-sticks.
  • For the most beginner of beginners

    By cacotigon
    Unfortunately if you have any experience at all on the piano, this app will frustrate you to no end. Everything is extremely slow paced, and you can’t even practice a full song without going through the interminable excruciatingly slow step by step process of learning the song.
  • Really Helpful App

    By Wenrl
    This is a great app for learning the piano whether you take lessons or not. Very helpful for learning notes and fingering for beginners. I haven’t gotten into more advanced music, but I’m looking forward to completing everything you offer here. I would like the option of learning the full songs and the option of downloading pdf of the music learned. I would be willing to pay extra for the full version of songs and sheet music so I could practice without the app once I have played with the app a few times. Like, 1-3 dollars for full song and download from a separate Skoove site.

    Notes recognition is sub-par compared to others apps available and they don't even support MIDI. Feankly a non starter for me.
