    Hi everyone,
    I have question for you, dear developers. Could you develop piano, guitar and/or drums for Palm Pre and Pixi?
    It is possible to see e.g. Mini Piano, Pianist or iBand for webOS with multitouch support and without lags?
    Thanks in advance for reply.

    i don't think there's any multitouch support outside of the imageviewer, at least as far as i know. i am working on a little piano, but mostly focused toward kids as a learning tool.

    Multitouch support is all over the browser and in a lot of PDK games. While I'm not a developer, it's my understanding that something that already exists in a bunch of apps cannot be impossible. So these instrument apps are possible to make indeed - the problem is going to be to find a developer who's going to make them for an OS that's not widely adopted at all.

    You seriously might want to find the devs responsible for making a similar iPhone app and ask them to port it to webOS. With the PDK, porting jobs purportedly only take a few hours in the best case and a few days in the worst...

    The multitouch support exists in the browser, etc. because it is basic and for pinch-to-zoom support. It isn't some special implementation. Those require the PDK, as it supports multiple mouse sources, whereas the browser (i.e. what webOS' UI runs on) does NOT support multiple mice (fingers).

    Hi,
    I searched for this but I'm found nothing. But maybe author of Omniano (Windows Mobile piano) can share sounds? I had this app and files (.mp3) of every tone are stored in Omniano folder. But actually I have no Windows Phone...

    Here's his homepage: sheon.tistory.com

    is that in korean? i can't read that. is there anywhere on the site that has an email address? i actually visualized almost the same layout he has for the app - too funny! i guess there's really only 1 good way to do it.

    ***EDIT: i emailed the dev via his youtube page. hopefully he'll be able to help out. his omniano app is pretty sweet, but mine will be focused more toward helping kids learn piano keys/notes (and adults i suppose )

    Maybe Korean, I dunno, but Google Translate may help
    Yeah, this app is good but only for Windows Mobile.
