Smule’s Magic Piano HD for the iPad is a $2.99 app that lets you play music on the iPad even if you have never played the piano before (though it helps if you did). It does this by providing a piano-roll like interface that gives you a game-like interface to challenge your fingers. You can also play free form using a variety of visual interfaces if you chose. Until now, the app was only available for the iPad. However, Smule just released a version for the iPhone. And, it is free.

You can share your Magic Piano playing with other users of the app around the world. And, you can also listen to other people playing and “like” their performance. Sharing through Facebook, Twitter and email is also provided.
New songs to follow in th game-like piano roll mode are released every week. And, one of those songs is a free download each Wednesday. Packs of songs can be added to the app via an in-app purchase.
