Developer The Way of H has launched two Rock Prodigy apps – one for iPhone and one for iPad. They promise to help people learn to play their real guitars, using ‘polyphonic pitch-recognition technology’ to hear the notes they’re playing, and provide instant feedback. Both apps are free to download, but the business model is users buying songs to learn – which use the master recordings. Tracks available to buy in the in-app store include songs by Boston, Megadeth, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Smashing Pumpkins, retailing at $2.99 apiece. So, it’s a serious educational app, but there are game-like aspects too, with a Perform Mode that scores users on their playing, and compares their stats with other players globally.
