Better than practicing with a book / CD

I don't have a naturally good ear so I keep practicing with different exercises in the app. The app really helped to train my aural skill because it gives detailed explanation and advice for me to improve myself.

It is just great!

Try it if you are preparing ABRSM Exam! It is really helpful and far better than the other aural apps or aural trainer. Those other are just app version of the CD you can buy from ABRSM (i.e. playing music only), but this one is a real teacher who can listen your preformance and tell you how to improve your singing, clapping and listening skill!!

Expensive and seriously flawed

Being a bit of a gadget geek, I downloaded this and the grade 2&3 versions.

I was initially quite impressed but then I explored it a little more and found there to be only 12 questions in the free version. Ok I thought, I'll buy the extra books, book 1 book 2 and book 3 at a cost of £25. I thought I was buying the books for the other grades in a nice package.

After spending far too long trying to work out how to access the book 2 and 3 material, I realised I had just bought hundreds of questions for Grade 1. This is very misleading!

Hate second issue that has now arisen is that after one practice at the clapping telling me that all was correct, no matter what question I try the app tells me that I have clapped far more beats than needed. I must just clap the correct beats in a strong rhythm. Well,

A. The terminology is wrong.
B. the one star of 5 it gives me, telling me to "not give up" is really not much use.

In short, there are too many flaws in this for me to ever use it with the kids I teach. What a waste of money!
