Koch Trainer is a morse code trainer that uses the Koch Method developed by the German psychologist Ludwig Koch in the 1930's. The method basically states that you should learn morse code at the speed you expect to receive, by training your reflexes to respond to code sent at 20 WPM you'll learn the code much faster.

Decent, but very basic

The app is good, and one of the only ones I have seen that uses the Koch method. There are definitely no frills and it is not very intuitive or smooth. There should be pause/play functionality on the built in scratchpad. It takes too long to go back and forth to the main page and hit pause or play. It would also be nice if the scratchpad counted up your mistakes and gave you a percentage - the idea is to move on to the next letter if you get 90% right. It should tell you where you are at.

Great compared to competition

This is a SUPER basic app. The user interface isn’t really what someone that ever USED it would have built. BUT it is one of the only apps in the entire store that isn’t a child’s toy. This is a genuine learning app. The most glaring omission is that it doesn’t grade your session, it will display - In A Different FONT - what it sent and what you typed. If this sounds hard to reconcile, it is!

This app seems like a beta release from someone that doesn’t really know what the app should do or how it should work. Still that does’t change the fact it is one of the VERY BEST in the entire store.

Best ever way to learn Morse.

I took my ham radio exams years ago when Morse was required in order to pass, but I never used it much (lazy)! Now 30 years later I want to re-learn Morse and this is definitely the best way to do it. I want to be proficient at 13 wpm, so I am starting at 13 wpm with the “Koch speed” set to 18. Also, now in my mid 70s, I need something to keep the brain from atrophying…this is certainly doing just that. Great App!
