With high-definition stereo samples across multiple velocities, iGrand Piano brings you the most playable, expressive and beautiful sounding piano instruments available on a mobile device that you can play anytime and everywhere. iGrand Piano FREE gives you 2 world-class pianos (including one by registering) along with a capable recorder and metronome.

  • Amature Hour

    By Htefuiiitfddddyyy
    This app is unacceptable. The sound quality is excellent when it is not popping, distorting, or generally causing problems. This was the first piano app I bought and upgraded to Pro. I now use a compatitor’s piano app so that I don’t have to have my ear drums damaged from the noise it produces when you switch pianos. Please fix this. It could be a great product.
  • Don't see the in app purchase

    By Jzurca
    The app doesn't show the additional instruments after purchase. It keeps saying purchase restored but I don't see any additional instruments. Please help.
  • App crashes.

    By Googhie1
    I would probably like it if I could get it to open.
  • Very impressed

    By misty1953
    Must say after play the sample for a few hours tonight. Think it is to my ears is the best piano on IOS. You tube has a couple really nice clips of the diff sound sample. Myself em real happy with the sample right now till I decided.
  • For what I do...

    By kashleeee
    I'll give this 5 stars. The intricacies of sampled piano sounds are enormous and not easily attained. I believe this is the best iOS true piano app out there. I use it live and have no complaints.
  • Distortion hampers what is otherwise an excellent app.

    By Bubbman
    Ever since iOS 9 there has been distortion when changing samples. I can no longer play any Ikmultimedia apps running in the background in unison, as program change causes notes to hang and popping noises. Since 2013 I have been using these apps, but the ability to live gig on an iPad Mini II/Air 1 has diminished with the advent of iOS9 update. Everything was fine before. Please fix!
  • Extensions not working

    By Billj2000
    I bought an extension and it's not working. Please fix it or refund my money.
  • In-app purchase problem

    By knadles
    I just bought the $4.99 expansion. It doesn't work. Please fix or refund my money. Thank you.
  • Won't recognize my previous purchases

    By Nitpick Pete
    since reloading with iOS 9. Please fix.
  • From Beast to Beauty

    By Bobbo924
    IK has taken its sweet time, but in doing so has turned my original 1-star review, grousing about annoying ads and discounts that didn’t appear, to this 5-star, google-eyed encomium to my favorite iPad music app of all. Now with the most recent update, not only have they brought iGrand into the iOS8 world with IAA and Audiobus functionality, but have added a new IAP for piano/strings, harpsichords, layered piano sounds and more. Beautiful. I don’t think there’s another app of any kind that makes me as happy as when I sit down to play this thing. As a bonus, one of their booboos in the past was that the apps are not universal. Well, after (a) making the in-app purchase on my iPad and (b) registering my iRig MIDI on the iPhone, I discovered to my delight that ALL of the instruments are now included there. Yes, I still have the “Free” emblazoned on my full-price purchase (I upgraded from the Free to the Full Version, to use their uppercase. But to complain about that bit of housekeeping would be churlish and ungrateful. Bravo, IK Multimedia, for ascending to the throne of my iOS world.
