Fantastic app

Brilliant tool for learning and practicing your scales and all of the various modes. Even has the music theory for each of them. As a lefty it would be nice if you could flip the display so I don’t have to reverse it in my head 🙂

UPDATE: So a couple of days later and there’s a new version with support for Lefty’s, totally awesome.

I continue to be impressed with this app, if you play or are learning bass there really is no reason not to get.

Update 2: still using and enjoying this app. Would like the ability to adjust the volume mix levels for the click and the scale when it plays through the scale. So I can adjust it to just have the scale sound so I can learn what a particular scale sounds like or move it to more click for practicing with.

A great app

This is a great app which I use all the time. It would be even better if it had the option to select all the notes in a scale across at least the first 12 frets - so you could visualise all the notes in one view. Great app though. Five stars.

Waste of money

I own a near identical version of this app from the same developer that now just crashes. Came to App Store to check if there are updates in the works and it no longer shows up, but I can buy this one for £2.99.
Don’t buy, if this version stops working down the line are they going to try and sell it me again? Probably better off looking online for a scale book instead, at least that will work for years to come. Bought this purely to leave a review and hopefully save someone else a bit of money.
