Hello guys,

I am an iPhone developer (and pianist) who thought it would be useful to have an application that allows you to view and add public pianos that you can play or practice on whenever you want.

So I created it, it's called Piano Finder, and it is on the iOS App store now. The way the application works is that it is a crowd sourced application. This means that I have not uploaded any pianos. However, some users have added a few pianos throughout the US and UK. You guys need to help by adding any public pianos that you know of. These pianos can be anywhere, a house, a church, a cafe, wherever, they just need to be able to be played whenever anyone likes. Some other functionality includes getting directions to a piano and rating the pianos. In future versions, I hope to add commenting capabilities and a little more information about the pianos. Please download, it is free, please add every free-to-play piano that you know of, and please give me suggestions, comments and ratings on the app store.

Thank you, tell me what you think. Here is the link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/piano-finder/id796259857?mt=8&uo=4

truly yours,

I can't download it because I don't have an Apple ID, but I think it is a wonderful idea! When I'm in a competition outside my home state, I find it hard to find pianos to practice on, so this helps solve that problem. Thanks for creating it.

There needs to be a demand for more contact information when adding a piano location. The one dropped pin near me lists no address, web site, or phone number, making it about useless. Even the pin's name (Boyle pianos) has no local results on an internet search.
It's a great idea, just modify the submission form.
