Piano Google Chrome Themes and Web Apps

In this Google Chrome theme and web app review post, I’ll introduce some Chrome themes and web apps related to piano.

I have never played piano and have no intention to learn, but I have to say piano is one of the best musical instruments.  The sound piano produces is great, the music that could be played with a piano range from simple to complex ones.  Despite that piano is less mobile than many other instruments, it is one of the most learned and favored musical instrument.  The black and white keyboard is a signature inspired many innovative home decoration, product design and graphical design.

Piano Web Apps

Plypp Piano is a nice piano keyboard app with over 100000 users.  It can produce the sound of 5 musical instruments, Ballad Grand Piano, Guitar, Harpsichord, Panflute and Sawtooth.  The beauty of this app is, unlike many other apps, that it uses HTML5 technology so it should run faster.  There is a built-in chord finder to let players easily find the chord he or she wants.

ButtonBeats Piano Player is another great piano web app with 80000+ users.  It has a killer feature that if you type in a song in the text field the piano could automatically play the song without you pressing a key.  This web app has a large collection of songs including pop songs, arcade game background music and classical music.  Simply copy and paste the note and click play to enjoy the song.

Color Piano! is a great web app for learning piano.  You don’t even need to learn reading sheet music!  It’s like playing tap tap tap game, you simply follow the visualized colorful notes to play.  This web app includes an import function so you can load MIDI files into it to play (the MIDI file must be piano-only).

Images and web apps from Chrome Web Store

Relaxpls: Web Screen Saver With Soothing Scenery and Sound

Tired to sit in front of the computer for long hours?  Want to relax your eyes and ears?  The web app introduced today brings soothing scenery and sound to your computer.  It is a web app that you do not have to install.  Simply go to the site and enjoy the comfortable image and natural sound.

 

Relaxpls: A Web Screen Saver With Soothing Scenery and Sound

Relaxpls has one and only feature – to bring you beautiful natural photos and natural sound to calm you down and relax your mind.  The natural scene changes frequently.  The sound you hear is birds, wind and running water, those you could hear if you have a walk in the woods.  You can mute the sound by clicking an icon on the web page if you simply need to freshen your eyes without the sound.

So how can it work as a screen saver?  Most modern browsers have a full screen mode.  For example, in Chrome in Windows you can view a web page in full screen by pressing F11 key.  You can also click the wrench icon in Chrome, then click the full screen icon to the right of the Zoom option.  Then the screen will be filled by the beautiful natural environment.

Relaxpls - Web Screen Saver With Soothing Scenery and Sound

I can think of two good uses of Relaxpls.  Firstly, it is particularly useful as a screen saver on a Chromebook.  Chrome OS does not provide a mechanism for changing the screen saver.  Relaxpls is a good alternative to the default one.  Secondly, it could be used as a meditation tool.  The images and sound massage your eyes and ears, take pressure out of you after hours of work.
