Matt and I have been chronicling our daily use of the iPad. Most recently I've been trying out some different piano apps, since I used to play piano and found that the versions for the iPhone were nice, but were a bit too hard to use on the limited screen size. With the iPad now offering a larger screen, it's ripe for some serious piano planning. Apparently I wasn't the only one who thought so, and now Chinese pianist Lang Lang has performed Flight of the Bumblebee using just the iPad. There's speculation that he used the app Magic Piano, but that's still speculation. Regardless of the app he used, his performance is incredible, as you'll see below.
