“Lidgard says the company’s ultimate goal is to reach the 250 million estimated amateur musicians around the world and allow them to bring their sounds to the masses.”
Great! Now we’ll have even more junk

1) I agree with Michael – the age of thinking the ability to write out music is uncool is so old. Education isn’t evil.
2) Android phones have surpassed iPhones by several million over the last quarter. Way to reach that wide consumer base!
1. Not €99.00, but $0.99. At least for iPhone.
2. Agree with everything said above.
3. Don’t worry, it simply doesn’t work. (Or my hearing left me completely without telling me.) The app is not able to memorize the simplest sequence right. At least when I was whistling or singing. Maybe it works better with an instrument. But only if it is in tune perfectly.
