Turn your Windows 8.1 device into a virtual keyboard with Piano!! from Onbeats

Onbeats has released another instrumental app for Windows 8.1, and this time we're looking at Piano!!. Already available on other platforms, this interesting little app will turn your Windows 8.1 device into a virtual piano, enabling you to create some music without forking out for a new physical keyboard or carrying around equipment with you.

Just like other Onbeats apps already on the Windows 8 store, it's both simple and intuitive. The app has already accumulated positive reviews on the store from consumers, so you can be sure you'll get a kick out of the experience should you make the purchase. Just like many such touch supporting apps, multi-touch is here for performing more complicated tunes.

There are a number of themes to choose from that alter the sound produced by the virtual piano. These include popular and well known tracks.

You can download (opens in new tab) Piano!! from the Windows Phone Store for $1.99 (Windows 8.1). Should you be a large fan of ONBEATS apps, you'll dig this new entry. Let us know how you get on and if you have any recordings to show off.

  • "You can download...from Windows Phone store"?
  • Yea... I have 8.1 -_-
  • Windows PC store
  • Is it ok that WPC report this, even though it's not directly WP❔...... You petty complainers..
  • Speaking of petty complaints, your question marks and exclamation points are annoying.
  • +929 @Tjalsma
  • So you're saying that a question mark, and a exclamation point is annoying... Speaking of petty period... Lol❕❕❕
  • Haha.  Seriously though.  And I am not trying to be jaded.  What is the deal with it?
  • Its become a force of habit.. Its saved in my favorites for emoji, and I have a habit of hitting the little smiley face instead of the "123".. I'm just using my phone to it's fullest, heck I don't even think about it anymore.. After all,, that's what MS put the emoji there for, to be used, right❔
  • That makes sense.  Thanks.  Now go play the piano!!!
  • Actually, I play the electric guitar.... What❔You ain't never seen a black man play the guitar❔❔
  • Some of the best guitar players are black.  Check out Animals as Leaders.
  • LOL... I'll check em out right now..
  • To bad can't add emoji from the app
  • they appear to be overly fond of the emoticons/symbols feature of the Windows 8/Windows Phone OSK (On Screen Keyboard)
  • I like that feature.. I use it all the time.. Surprised❔
  • Someone from a university made a concept of foldable piano as attachment to surface. I hope that concept happens.
  • "Should we just play 'Chopsticks'?"
  • Finally, the app gap has been closed.
  • We need a new Windows Central page, so we can view Windows Store news :) or at least rename this as Windows Central (for the one microsoft vision) and get both Windows (pc, rt and phone) in one place :P
  • You forgot Xbox, it's not Windows Central, it's Microsoft Central, but this complaints are stupid, WPC writes everything regarding Microsoft devices, focusing on phones.
  • Im a wpc fan, I'm not complaining, I'm just saying :P
  • Should be great with 10 finger input of Surface Pro! :D
  • What about audio latency? Is this app cool to play with, or does it have a noticable latency while playing it ?
  • Lets play chopsticks! Lol
  • Why is there soo many shitty piano apps. Why?
