For the phone, headphones are a near must unless it's super quiet but if you don't have wireless phones, you're out of luck. After a week, they wanted more money from me to really get into the game and play it more which I wasn't willing to do. Wish they just gave you more to do with the free version!"

      ""Ultra-realistic" piano sound? From an iPad? Okay, let's just skip that part. As terrific as this piano app sounds, it has some important failures. For one thing, you have to be a member paying a monthly fee to access the main library of songs. The songs that are free are played automatically whether you want to listen to it or not. Additionally, there are no instructions for how to play the song. I see only one other piano app available for iPad. You might want to try that one instead of this one."
