Welcome, all players!

Though for privacy reasons, Play Along Keys deliberately knows very little about individual users, we do know what songs you play (so we can give you your rank) and what countries you are from and also what kind of device you are using. This chart shows a comparison by iOS/Android and by country. Apparently those of you in India who play Play Along Keys, do so overwhelmingly on Android as well. Our players in Brazil also prefer Android. Things are pretty equal in Germany, but in the rest of the world iOS is generally favored. We hadn’t realized we had so many fans in India! Welcome, India and all! Glad that you are enjoying our music game!
