    The flaw in this app is that it has Bb Major as having 3 flats WHEN THAT IS Eb MAJOR! I wonder what other flops does it have!
  • Great Customizability

    I really enjoy this app. I have had it for around eight years and have been consistently satisfied with its performance. I love how customizable it is so that any user can make meaningful progress. I would like it if there were a chord progression ear training exercise, but otherwise I can’t think of any way this app could be better. Excellent!
  • Amazing for teaching

    This app has not only helped me, an experienced piano player, but I have used it with my piano students for ear training and reading and it has helped them a lot. The only thing I think could improve the app was that if there was a teaching mode. For example, if someone doesn’t know what the Aeolian scale is, there could be a place in the app where they can go for a reference. Other than that, the app is simply a blessing. Thank you
  • Almost perfect!

    The exercises work great for my ear training and theory practice. However, I’d like to see a better way of measuring and viewing score progress over a longer period of time. You should be able to see old scores within the app and something like a graph that shows your progress would work too.
  • Great! But suggestion:

    Suggestion: PLEASE include voiced chords on grand staff as an option for visual chord identification.
  • Very good use every day

    This app is incredible. I need to practice identifying chords and this app does the job so well. Wow. Thank you!
  • Autoplay function??

    This is a great app - one of the best sight-reading/ear-training apps on the market. However, it REALLY needs an autoplay function. Having to press buttons on the screen makes this app impractical for sight-reading practice with an instrument. If the user had the option of an ‘autoplay’ function, in which notes/intervals/chords were flashed at a rate of say, one per second, without having to touch the screen, the app’s usefulness as a practice aid would be hugely improved. Please consider!
  • Excellent!

    This app is great. Most of the exercises are highly customizable. There are six main sections each containing a great selection of exercises - just about anything you would want. It’s an excellent trainer.
  • Great—would love also rhythm training

    Love it. Would also love a rhythm module. To tap out rhythms in response to notation.
