APP for iPhone Hohner-GCF Button Accordion version1.3 Download

Tradlessons delivers the absolute best sounding Accordion apps for Android!

Hohner announces the introduction of a series of revolutionary new accordion apps for Android: The Hohner SqueezeBox Button Accordions.

Modeled on the layout of Hohner's iconic Corona Classic diatonic
accordion, these intuitive virtual accordion apps feature a super
responsive, three-row fingerboard that plays and sounds like the
traditional instrument.

Reviewers, please read the HARDWARE LIMITATIONS below before posting.

The app is optimized for devices with a screen size of 7" or higher but is still quite playable on smaller screens. Your playing experience may vary on each device, especially concerning multitouch functionality and speed. Please take advantage of the Google Play Store 15-minute trial period to see if the app performs well on your specific device: http://support.google.com/googleplay/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=134336.

The Hohner SqueezeBox apps allow musicians to practice chord
combinations, scales, and songs on-the-go in five different key
combinations and colors. Headphones can be used for private practice,
or the audio output of the virtual accordion can be amplified by
plugging into computer speakers, or other sound enhancing devices.

Players may select to have the pitch names displayed on the large
white pearloid buttons. With the touch of a button, the tonality can
be changed from "wet tuning" giving an animated sound, to "dry
tuning".

Touch anywhere above the button board in the bellows or grill to toggle between push and pull of the bellows.

This app is ideal for the beginning student or professional musician
who needs a simple carry-on companion to compliment his or her actual
accordion. While not meant to be a replacement for a real accordion,
the app is a convenient and easy tool for practicing, learning, or
teaching.

GCF is commonly used for Tex-Mex, Conjunto, Norteño, Zydeco, Cajun,
Vallenato, and French Canadian.

Be sure to check out the "Real Players, Real Music" videos on the app website.

Want to play in all the keys? Download all five Hohner SqueezeBox
apps: Hohner-GCF, Hohner-FBbEb, Hohner-EAD, Hohner-ADG, and
Hohner-BbEbAb.

HARDWARE LIMITATIONS:

Please read before purchase of this app if you have a Samsung Galaxy S2 or S3 phone.

Due to the touchscreen hardware capabilities on some Android phones, specifically, but not limited to the Samsung Galaxy S2 and S3, it is not possible to touch two buttons directly next to each other at the same time along a row or between rows and have them both make sound at the same time.

Because the touchscreen hardware does not send us the touch events for adjacent buttons on the phones, this is not something we can fix in the software.

There is no problem on the phones for playing single note melody lines or chords not on directly adjacent buttons.

This limitation is not present for 7" or larger screen tablets.

For the reviewers posting negative reviews, the app is doing the best it can on your device and version of Android. The app is working great on many newer tablets. I'm sorry, but that's the truth. Either upgrade your Android version, get a newer/faster device, or buy an iPad if you want the best possible performance. Rather than exclude anyone from trying the app, which we could have done, we'd rather give you a chance to try it on your device, and if it doesn't perform up to your needs, please just get your money back. This is the reality of musical instrument apps on Android.

AppCordions part of our Music & Audio and have average installs from 5000 to 10000. Last Update March 6, 2013. Appstore play rating is 79.7163. Current verison is 1.3. Actual size 7.0 MB.

What's new

    We're absolutely listening to all your suggestions on how to continue to improve the Hohner apps on Android!
    Compared to versions 1.1 and 1.2, for this version we optimized the graphics to provide as large a button size as we could on the typical Android 16:9 aspect ratio display used on the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Tab devices.

Wrong key! It's in the key of A flat/E when it should be in G!! Wtf. I didn't notice until now, I went back for a refund an I was too late

Fix it. You can do better than this. I see that you are not trying to make changes to your button and grill like many gs3 users suggested you do. Is great for tablets but a waste for smartphone users. Take out the grill so you can expand the buttons. If you can't make a product that works well then don't offer it at all. It only makes it look like you are just interested in making money.

:) I was a previous owner of a galaxy s3 and this app was horrible if you wanted to press 2 buttons that where next to each other...it was imposible ...but know I have galaxy s4 and it works great.. 5/5

Doesn't work well The buttons are slightly small even for the note screen. If you can make the buttons slightly wider they would be great. Also when you press 3 buttons and the push like some songs are done it freezes a button . 1 star until corrections are fixed.

Touch Response Is An Issues! Great app! I love the idea and the sound isnt all too bad but why is it that the app isn't as smooth on android as on the I-pad! I only use it to figure out songs because of that if not id be doing way more practice on this please fix it!

Great Update Update works great on my Samsung galaxy tab 2 7.0! The buttons are circularized now instead of oval shaped and the grill is smaller, so there's a bit more space between buttons. It's much easier to play a song now. Good update!

"PLEASE FIX!" When I press two buttons that are next to eachother only ONE makes noise

Hate it Ugggghhhh hate it!! Buttons are to small!!!! Can play two buttons next to each other. ....trying to impress my bf on a romantic song and u kill it with the buttons! !!

Great app Works good and nice sound really good for only 2 dlls..

Refund Does not work on my asus table make it work

Great app But you think you can make a little change like making the buttons adjustable please that would be awsome. Please do.

Please add tab numbers on the keys Please add the option to use tab numbers on the keys, and add music tabs to the app like the ipad version. Thank you

Great app Needs more improvement.buttons are to slow.cant play the songs i wanna play.

Don't work well on HTC one. it make a sound before the tone.

HTC evo 4g lte I like the app, but if I hit the the buttons too fast they don't make a sound and then it freezes. Please fix it ASAP.

Okay Its great but the buttons are too small even when i widened it. I can't touch two buttons next to each other, only ones apart. Maybe having less of the grill. SGS2

Nice i like this application Real good i love play accordion

Poor app Bad quality application, "Android Accordion" app is much better than this app

Bad quality Bad quality app.
