People love Notes because it's easy and it works.

This basic flashcard app helps beginners learn the letter names for notes on the bass and treble clef ("F" on bass through to "G" on treble).

• Displays a random note on the musical staff and you click the correct letter/key.
• For MIDI savvy folk - this app is now MIDI enabled! Use Apple Core MIDI compliant devices with the app.
• Change to either treble or bass clef by clicking the clef.
• Toggle the visual effects on/off by tapping the trophy icon.
• Practice only specific notes (click the gears icon to enter the Settings screen where you can disable all but the specific notes you want to practice)

It’s okay.

It’s good for memorization, but i wish it would have things like goals, or songs to learn, something to motivate you to keep going because it does get tedius after a while. Also, it would be awesome if there was a way to incorporate the mac keyboard into it so it wasn’t all just clicking! But this app does get the job done if you’re just looking to strictly memorize notes.

Good, but...

…there’s an error in the program: in the bass clef it says “H” instead of the note “B”. I tried to contact the programer(s), but the contact page on their website also is not working. Maybe they’ll read this review and fix the error in this “Notes” for Mac OS program.

Very, Very Basic

The graphics are done well, but the program is appropriate for only someone very young or a very new beginner. I am sorry that the writeup did not make that clear. I wasted only a few minutes and only a few dollars, but wish I had known what to expect.
