SolFi Ear Trainer 3 is an ear training application for students of music to improve their listening skills. It contains some basic exercises used by many schools to teach their students. It assumes the user has some knowledge of music theory.
It contains three exercises:
1. Pitch Dictation - Given a tonic note, one or more notes are played sequentially. The user is asked to annotate the sequence using solfege or pitch names (for perfect pitch). The user can choose up to four parts.
2. Chord Identification - Three or more notes from a specific key are played melodically or harmonically. The user is asked to choose from a given set of chords and inversions.
3. Interval Identification - Two notes are played melodically or harmonically. The user is asked to choose from a given set of intervals.
A piano keyboard is also be viewed in landscape mode. The tonic note of the current exercise is highlighted in red to assist the student.

Exactly what I was looking for.
If you are trying to learn to play a melody after hearing it, this is the app for you. It gives you a random melodies to figure out and you can customize the length (up to ten notes) as well as all the notes you want to include. If you want to test what you have in mind you can just turn your phone sideways and a keyboard shows up.
Totally worth the money!
I do have a couple recommendations. Add interval name for the note name type (e.g. Minor second, major second, perfect fifth...). Also add the option to have random note durations. So it wouldn't just play all quarter notes.
App sound works but not on sound volume??
If anyone else runs into this problem, the app doesn’t run on the sound volume, it runs on the ringtone volume. I find this very odd. When my iphone is switched on silent and my volume is turned all the way up it won’t make noise, but when my phone is switched off of silent and my ringtone volume is up it does. Cool app either way... just maybe something to fix at some point?
Great tool, responsive app designer :)
I suggested that the maximum number notes for the melodic dictation section should be expanded... The next version of the app was put out promptly with exactly what I had suggested. Definitely makes this cool program an even better tool :) Thank you!
