Whether you've always wanted to learn or you're a veteran looking for a fun new way to practice, get ready to join the thousands using Synthesia.

I wouldn't pay 99 cents for this crap and they want to charge 40 bucks for it? their out of their damn minds or taking advantage of people.
I encourage the author to go back to FOSS as this is a great way to learn piano for children, it would be generous to have it for free.
It'd also be a great way to improve the code and to ensure a long term support with a bigger community of developpers.
Synthesia for iPad is available in the iTunes App Store as of 12/6/2012.
