This app teaches you to 'receive' Morse code.
It starts with two letters and automatically adds more when it understands that you are ready.
This is the easiest and most efficient way to learn Morse code as the app focuses on the practice you need next, instead of wasting your time with stuff you already know or confusing you with stuff that you still don’t.
The original idea comes from Ward K9OX (http://c2.com/morse/).
By default the app uses the 'Koch' method letter sequence and starts with the first two letters: K and M. But you can use any of the methods available and find the one that suits more your likings. There's also a training program for the top 40 words used during a CW QSO.
Around each letter you have a circle chart showing how high is your error score. It starts from 100% (full circle) and lowers as you start guessing letters right and increases when you are wrong or you take too much time to recognise them.
To start the training, simply press the PLAY button on the top right of the display.
At this point the app will start playing tones. Press the one that you think corresponds to the tone. If you are wrong, the app will let you know by playing an 'error' sound. If you are right, the app will continue by picking up another letter or word. Once you'll become good enough with the active letters, the app will enable a new one following the method selected.
You can decide to put the training lesson on hold by pressing the PAUSE button. Or stop it by pressing the STOP button. If you want to have an automatic stop after a certain amount of minutes, you can set the SESSION TIME in the settings.
While not training, you can tap on any key or word and listen to its tone to start to get used to it even outside of the training session.
You can access the SETTINGS by tapping the 'hamburger icon' on the top left.
You can look at your top 10 scores by tapping BEST SCORES in the left menu.
Important: you can use the app in both landscape and portrait mode!
Enjoy learning Morse code!

This has become my favorite morse learning app. Only have a couple issues. Sometimes there will be a double output and and that a little annoying. And after a while it freezes up on me and wont work for a while. Other wise i would have easily given 5 stars.
Changed my review from 1 to 4 stars
I followed the guidance to change the letter timeout from 2 to 10 seconds and it eliminated the periodic double character output. Thanks!
I've finally learned all of the characters after trying off and on over the years.
This app, however, is buggy. It freezes often, stops playing the sounds, and sometimes plays two sounds at once.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
