Casio's fantastic (and free!) Chordana Play app

When someone offers you something good for free, it's only natural to be suspicious. "What's the catch?", your mind may wonder. Well, fortunately the generous folks at Casio believe that just because something is free, doesn't mean there has to be some hidden horror lurking in the shadows, waiting to prise every penny from your wallet. And with that, we present the fantastic (and absolutely free) Chordana Play app.

So what is it? Well, in short, it's an app that makes learning and playing the piano a lot easier, and more fun too. You can use your device to read music (and even get a brief history lesson on the composer of the music if you'd like), use the MIDI player to learn specific songs and track your improvement in your maestro-level piano skills, use the Audio Player section to play along with your favourite songs (and even loop specific parts that you're struggling with), or you can always use it to further tweak the parameters of your piano's on-board sounds.

The app is compatible with most of Casio's digital piano range, and here's a bit more about the features!
