App Store Link: Deemo - Rayark International Limited
The story of Deemo and little girl has come to an end!
From Cytus team, a world acclaimed music rhythm game.
Rayark brings you Deemo, a hybrid of music rhythm game and the story of urban fantasy, with hand-drawn art, story-telling gallery and real instrumental feedback of piano key sound.
Deemo is a mystic character who lives in solitude in a castle all by itself. A little girl falls from the sky, not knowing who she is, where she comes from. To help the little girl back to her world, Deemo comes to realize a tree keeps growing tall on top of the piano whenever it plays. What would Deemo do when it gets comfortable with the companionship it never had before? What if the little girl couldn't deal with the truth when her seemingly lost memories regained?!
"Never left without saying goodbye".

In the distant future, the only sentient beings in the world are robots.
They are the last remnant of the human spirit.
However, mankind is not dead.
Technology exists that is capable of transferring memories to these robots.
But with limited space, new memories will gradually overwrite the old.
To prevent the emotions in human memories from fading away, the robots resorted to converting the emotions to music, and storing them in a place called Cytus.
The robots use these songs to experience human emotion and dream that souls exists in each of them...

App Store Link: Note Rush: Learn Music Sight Reading + Piano Notes - Thomas Grayston
A fun game for practising note reading on the music staff to help you learn piano, keyboard, flute, saxophone, violin, or any other instrument! Note Rush shows you a random note then uses the microphone to listen as you play through them like you would with note reading flashcards, only these flashcards check that you're playing the right note before moving on!
Play with a bunch of fun themes and race to earn stars and beat your best time! Note Rush is great for teaching keyboard geography by making sure each note is played in the correct octave. A music theory must-have for learning sight reading at all levels of music education.
"Note Rush has quickly become my favorite app for piano teaching." - Joy Morin, colorinmypiano.com
"Note Rush is a motivating app that engages students to improve quickly with their note reading skills. It is definitely one of my top favorites and will be used often!" - Jennifer Foxx, musiceducatorresources.com
"Note Rush is a great way to review notes for the One Minute Club." - Susan Paradis, susanparadis.com

Listens to Your Instrument
Note Rush helps students learn a strong association between notes on the page and keys on your instrument by using your device's microphone to detect when you play each note. Works with pianos, keyboards, flutes, violins, you name it! (See Q&A below for more about supported instruments.)
Note Rush goes as fast or as slow as the student with no time limits, so is suitable for complete beginners right through to being a fun challenge for professionals!
Grand Staff Context
The whole grand staff is always visible, showing each note in full context and helping students learn how notes are spaced out across the two staves.
Octave-Sensitive Keyboard Geography
It's a "B", but which "B"?? Note Rush teaches keyboard geography by making sure you're getting the note in the right octave every time.
Great for Home Practise
Students will rush to their instrument at home every day with NoteRush, chasing that elusive high score! Unlike flashcards, children can drill note identification at home with no music-reading parent required to check if they're getting them correct - Note Rush checks for you! Play every day and you'll soon be able to name and identify notes instantly!
Note Rush has five built-in Levels, from Middle C-Position right through to the full grand staff with 2 ledger lines above and below. Plus select between Treble Clef, Bass Clef or both! Full customisation of specific note selections is coming soon.
Replace Your Flash Cards
Use Note Rush instead of printed flash cards! Note Rush was designed to replace the cards used in One Minute Club - a challenge you can run in your studio where students have to complete a given level in under a minute. Give it a try!
Note Rush is made by Thomas Grayston, a software developer, pianist, and husband to a piano teacher.

App Store Link: Popscene (Backstage Pass) - MDickie Limited
This special "VIP" edition of the music industry sim allows you to enjoy it at its best with no interruptions - plus a "Backstage Pass" that invites you behind the scenes to save your changes to all 150 characters!
Bring your music collection to life with animated performances as you embark on a career in the industry. Form your own band by recruiting talent from over 100 artists across 6 unique labels. Then record hits that will top the charts and take them on the road to over 20 different venues - complete with real reviews that scrutinize your strengths and weaknesses. With an endless schedule of possibilities before you, and an ever-evolving industry to immerse yourself in, Popscene captures the highs and lows of music in the palm of your hand!
* Please note that this game's use of MP3s may not be compatible with some devices. If this affects you, consider turning off MP3 music in the options.
Popscene divides the music making process into entertainment (represented by stars) and artistry (represented by hearts). As in real life, popular music is more likely to shoot up the charts and draw fans - but without substance, the success may be short-lived. Each of the game's many artists has the following attributes that influence this process:
- POPULARITY is the artist's ability to draw fans to entertaining content.
- REPUTATION is their ability to draw fans to artistic content.
- PERFORMANCE is their ability to perform entertaining songs live.
- TALENT is their ability to perform artistic songs live.
- PRODUCTION is their ability to compose entertaining music.
- WRITING is their ability to compose artistic music.
- HAPPINESS is the pleasure they currently get from their work.
- ATTITUDE indicates how likely they are to either contribute or cause trouble.
Each week, depending on the size of your team and their collective attitude, new songs may be recorded. Each member of the team contributes their score to a new song, and whoever scores the highest will be credited with making it. Members who are dedicated backstage staff will contribute twice instead of once - increasing the chances of a good song being written.
Once songs exist, it is the on-stage performers who must bring it to life. As with writing, each band member on stage contributes their score and the highest determines how well the song was received in each category. This time, it is the "frontman" who gets to contribute twice instead of once - so consider who is at the forefront.
The overall rating for a show is the average of all the songs performed - albeit slightly more generous so that perfection is not required. This is also true of album reviews. A 5-star performance may consist of consistent 4-star contributions. Reviews are where your performances feed back into the stats that produced them, because each attribute will rise or fall to reflect what just happened.
When booking venues, you must consider how much it will cost versus how much you are likely to recoup. Tickets are sold at $5 per song so it depends how long your set is. You will receive a percentage of this revenue, and must then use that to pay your employees and any other expenses. Singles are sold at $1 each whereas albums are sold at $1 per song for a maximum of $10. If you have a week of inactivity, you may find that you make a loss because of the expenses of your lifestyle (which reflects your wealth).
I regret there is more to this game than I could ever explain here, so enjoy figuring some things out for yourself!
