Accurate and Organized

Very informative and easy to use app. It’s always nice to find a quality app about Carnatic music that you can use on your phone even when there’s no WIFI or data service.

Best one

Excellent app for beginners or experienced Carnatic singers. My search for an app for swarasthanams stopped after finding this app. Searched several other apps but not satisfied. This is a *. Kudos to the team.

Love it

I have been using it regularly since a year. The app is very useful when you want to place the notes of aroha and avaroha properly. But now I do not get volume at all when I touch on the swara. Will somebody please resolve this issue?
