How do I upgrade to v2.0 from an older 1.x version?

Because Etude was acquired and is now published through Steinway, the new version will not appear under "Updates" in iTunes or the App Store.

Instead, you will need to re-download the app here, which costs nothing.

The old version you paid for will remain on your device as a separate app, should you need it.

Does my country affect what songs I can buy?
Yes. Not all songs are licensed in all countries. We're working with publishers to make as many songs available in as many places as possible.
Does my country affect whether I can get the Etude app?
Etude is presently available in every country supported by the App Store except for Norway and Sweden, which will be added soon. Förlåt!
