Christian Bacaj Electronic Piano Synthesizer XS, £0.69
Compatibility: iPhone, iPod touch and iPad (requires iOS 5.0 or later)

This app’s electric piano (and other) sounds are generated not through samples, but in real-time via a dedicated engine.

Sounds can be spiced up with the included effects.
