Would it be possible to add a finger numbers option, on the keyboard keys? I was testing out the dev release on OS X. While having only the notation displayed, it would be nice to see the finger numbers on the keys, for beginners like myself.

A second request would to be able to download the android version from the website here. Using a Kindle Fire HD and no access to Google Play. The current public release plays just fine on the Amazon Fire HD. I just had to find a work-around getting it downloaded so I could install it.

Thanks!

Does this guide show how to get the labels on the keyboard keys the way you wanted?

As for making the APK available as a separate download, I've coincidentally been working on a few improvements to automate more of both the dev and official release sides of our internal process. As one of the side-effects of the change, we'll hopefully be able to make a direct Android APK download available for exactly zero additional effort! :)

Yes, that does but it doesn't show when you have notation only. Also, it only shows some of them. I understand the reason on that but for beginners it may be nice to show all of them.

Thanks! ;)

The upcoming major Synthesia 11 update is all about improving the sheet music display. Adding finger hint numbers there is one of the planned improvements. :)
