Crazy that it’s free
These are simple exercises in simple progressions, yet the app is so incredibly helpful I am astounded that they aren’t charging money for it. It starts off extremely easy, so you have to be patient in the beginning if you’ve played an instrument before, but within the first half hour it picks up a bit. I have never done much ear training before despite playing a couple instruments, and the medium-level exercises are challenging for me. I’ve been trying to learn songs by ear for the first time, and this app is a tremendous help. And after completing the “goals” which progress incrementally, there is a practice section to review as often as needed.
Useful and easy to use
I enjoy the layout and the simple, repetitive exercises. My biggest issue, which I imagine isn’t widespread, is that using the keyboard to do the exercises, it often holds the note after I press a key, and I end up listening to a dissonance underneath what I’m doing. Annoying, but not terrible. I also wish there were more goals, maybe, not that I’ve even gone through them all. All in all, good and useful but just a minor bug.
Great app, one suggestion
Love this app.
Suggestion: sometimes when working on a goal, when a new concept is introduced, the initial level sometimes don’t play it at all, which makes it harder to recognize in the future level. So in all of the “minor tenth” levels in the compound interval recognition goal, for example, a minor tenth should always be played at least once.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
