So, this update took a great app and added the B-griff or B-system layout for no extra charge. And while not new, it is very easy to customize the sound by adding a soundfont of your choice and adding extra styles of accompaniments via midi files. Great fun!

What a marvelous app!! Wow!!! I am absolutely pleased.

Known problems:
- In iOS 7 there is a function called "Multitasking ...". Please set the switch to OFF (in iPad, Settings, General).
- No sound: Is the silent switch set to OFF or volume too low?
