Only for toddlers.

Only toddlers can use the MiniPiano. It is really small that I was too old to use the app.

Is it any good?

This app displays piano keys that look and sound just like the real thing. Kids can run scales, form chords, even play Chopsticks. There's one octave composed of eight white keys and six black keys starting at middle C. The Sustain setting makes it sound like you're using the foot pedal.
