The Trumpet plus more for your iPhone or iPod Touch. Play it anywhere. Practice and learn scales and songs. Jam along with any of your own music. Or play along with a song in the Songbook and let it show you how. It's useful to students and playable by anyone. (*see below for details about the interface)
1. Touch or Blow to make a sound
2. Tap the 'valve pads' to set the pitch
3. Raise and lower the bell for volume.
And it's capable:
Cover the Trumpet's standard notated range -- slur up and down, trill, and even bend notes and add vibrato. It's the closest you'll get to the real thing.
No clue about the real thing? Pick a tune from the Songbook, and let it show you the way as you play along with the band accompaniment. Just tap the colored blocks at the bottom of their fall to hit the right note at the right time.

ABOUT THE INTERFACE
iTrump is modeled after the real Trumpet and is designed to allow play purely by touch with maxmium agility and minimum coordination between left and right hand.
There's an 'open pad' for left thumb, and three 'valve pads' which correspond to trumpet valves 1, 2, and 3 and drop 2, 1, and 3 half-steps, respectively. The vertical divisions are based on the harmonic series and what you would play if you slurred continuously all the way up or down for a given valve combination. For open, this would be C G C E G (Bb) C, etc. (The Bb partial is currently left out).

Ratings and Reviews
I have a real trumpet
Hi. I have a real trumpet, and sometimes, I want to have an app to get my trumpet fix in even if I don’t have my real one with me. This app really does the trick! I haven’t played with the app yet, but I saw the description and got hooked! Does the app work like a real trumpet? I see it has a Blow switch in the settings to blow into the microphone, but I don’t know if I would want to use that feature.
I give you 5 stars for making my day with a trumpet app that I can have when I want to learn how to play the trumpet on the go!
More fun than I expected
Like a few others here, I purchased this app after hearing the results of your suit. Congrats!
So far this seems like a great tool to aid some with visualizing and making a connection with sound, finger position, and name of the note. I will suggest this to a couple of my older college students to see how they feel about the transposition feature.
I gave this app 4 stars because I feel like there is room to grow. I would love to see a companion tool in the shape of an actual trumpet valve block. I think this could prove to be very useful for students who need to develop muscle memory without needing to blow into their actual horn. Great start!
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the review. If possible, could you please contact us, through the feedback button in the app?
Shut Up and Take My Money!!
I'll be honest... I don't play the trumpet and have found that I am not very gifted musically. That being said, I did just read about how the creator of this app successfully defended himself in a 6-year trademark infringement suit brought by our President-For-Now's eponymous organization.
You can have my $2.99, sir, and I thank you for your service!
