***** Must Have!!!
This is the best Ear Trainer of all I tried in App Store, everything works just perfectly. If you are interested in improving your musical hearing you must have it.
I have been using this app every day for just about a year now and the result are simply amazing.
**** I'm in my second third semester as a music major and I have to say, this is a great app for any music major, or anyone looking for ear training. I like that I'm able to switch between different instruments, it makes hearing the notes on the instrument you're use to a bit easier for me.
**** Excellent outil
J'ai testé des nombreux programmes d'entraînement et de reconnaissance musicale sur iPhone et celui-ci est de loin le plus complet et le plus intéressant.
***** Complimenti! Grande versatilità e facilità d'uso. Ottima per principianti, ma anche per chi vuole approfondire la conoscenza dell'armonia. La uso sempre con i miei allievi.
***** I love those chord progressions
I was hoping that someone would make an ear training app that did chord progression but I didn't think anyone would, then you did

Great app for ear training.
Fantastic Ear trainer
Coming from a music student this app is extremely functional and awesome for quick and easy practicing with completely customizable quizzing and testing. I use it all the time while I commute to and from school. It has strengthened my listening! Great for music theory practice testing, I’ve been acing all my listening tests.
