Piano Tutor for iPad adds MIDI support

SmileyApps has added MIDI support to Piano Tutor for iPad, allowing the app to be used with a real keyboard for learning piano. Designed to teach piano sheet reading skills and allow users to practice on the go, Piano Tutor for iPad includes realistic piano sounds and provides training in both Treble and Bass modes and various key signatures. The new MIDI keyboard support allows users to connect the app to any keyboard with MIDI output via a standard MIDI to USB cable and the iPad Camera Connection Kit; users can then use the real piano keyboard to practice the in-app tutorials. Despite the name, Piano Tutor for iPad is actually a universal app that can be used on any device running iOS 4.2 or later. Due to Apple’s compatibility limitations with the iPad Camera Connection Kit, the MIDI features are supported only on the iPad. Piano Tutor for iPad is currently available from the App Store as a free download for a limited time.
