After installation I could not find anything, not a single explanation how to use it. No manual, no help, nothing. I tried some chords, it sounds okay. Then I noticed it eats a LOOOOOT of CPU, my Mac started to suffocate, and I trashed the app. Pity, it looks like it should be fun.

Horrible application. The notes are randomly strewn about on the keyboard such that it's nearly impossible to work out a single musical melody or anything of the like. This is more of a child's toy turns screensaver that holds little to no practical use. It's a shame, too, I was excited to try it out. Deleted.

Thanks for the review! I'll keep working on optimizing the code to reduce the hit on the system. On my iMac, it records a utilization rate of 10% system resources. I've updated the app with a few more Quick Help screens and a note tip on-screen to inform people of the hotkeys to them. I hope that helps in the meantime before I can put out a more detailed tutorial.
