Fantastic, amazing value!

Needed something to help develop my Aural skills for my Music A Level. This is a simple to use app that's really good value for all it contains. You can choose which intervals/chords it tests you on, meaning you can keep hearing the ones you find hard until you get the hang of it. It also shows the answers on the keyboard, which helps you get a visual idea of what the interval 'looks' . I like the ability to be able to play a chord in the background for context also. It's more realistic in terms of identifying an interval within a piece of music. All in all, this app has been invaluable and is well worth the small cost for any music student :)

Great ear training app

Best ear training app I've found - great interface for melody and interval play back and excellent selection of chords. Please add 13b9, 13#9 and 7#11#9 chords in the next update (maybe 13#11, 13#11#9 and 13#11b9 as well) - then this app would be perfect!

Not bad

Needs an update so you can take the guess work out of what chord your playing. The bottom right hand box should state more info like this. Especially with so you know what interval if it's a major 2nd etc and the scale name would be helpful when learning scales how do we know what it is we are learning just hearing it does not help .
