UkeHero app review: master the ukulele



There are plenty of instruments out there that are common to play so how would you like to learn how to master one that is a bit more unique? The UkeHero app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone gives users a chance to learn how to play on this virtual ukulele. The app manages to gives users an incredibly realistic experience when it comes to sound thanks to its EUMLab sound engine. You are given a number of chords and patterns to master and before long you'll be sounding like a true pro.

Learn at Your Pace

There are plenty of advantages of using the UkeHero app to learn how to play the ukulele, with the first one being that you'll be able to learn at your own pace and on your own schedule. There's also the fact that you don't even have to own a ukulele in order to learn chords and patterns. With this app you will be placing your fingers on the dots in order to make the chord. There are eight chords to learn and once this is done you’ll be able to create music. Speaking of music, once you become more familiar with the chords you can move on to the 14 playing patterns. You can opt to hold the auto button to go through the patterns automatically without you having to do a thing.

This app is a brand-new release so with that said it doesn't yet have any updates, a customer rating, or customer comments. The app requires iOS 7.0 or later to use.

Features and Highlights

There are a number of features and highlights within the UkeHero app, all designed to give users a realistic, educational, and fun experience. Besides learning the chords, the finger positions, and patterns, you can also create, save, and then load your very own chord maps. If you want to create some really cool music there are also four sound effects. This is a universal app that you will be able to enjoy across all your devices as you master your musical talent.

I have to comment on the graphics in this app which are really quite impressive. Yes, this one is about sound, but the graphics really help to make the experience feel professional. The entire experience manages to feel true and natural from start to finish, which is hard to believe since it is a virtual lesson.
