Good little app

As a music student who struggles with reading was looking for an app to practice every day. Of course there are websites like Teoria and Tonedear that is free, but wanted an application. I really like this application and use it for 10 minutes a day. The sight reading is great. Things that I wish this application had. 1. Concept of key signatures (e.g. Tapping rhythms in X/8 timing), the ability to clap in rhythms, one time purchase. I would love to support the application but $5/month is on the high side. Would rather do a one time purchase. The develop of this application is very active and seems to respond to inquiries. Great individual! All in all I gave it 5 stars because it does what it says it will do and the sight reading part of the application is unique compared to the other applications that I experimented with. Alas I am stuck with 10 minutes a day until a perpetual license becomes a reality.

A totally boring and stressful way to practice

I am studying to be a music teacher right now and play a wind instrument. Downloaded it to see how useful it could be for teaching. For beginners it starts having you read rhythms with no verbal explanation of what to do and very quickly you must automatically know to repeat it back without being told to. An annoying voice is counting the rhythms and you must repeat rhythms you get wrong over and over.
Then I tried the placement test which assessed my rhythmic skills well and gave me some challenging ones I wasn’t used to. I then realized that the only way to use this app is tapping your finger and I was thinking, “How well can this really apply to instrument playing or singing? Maybe it could be good for percussion players but no one plays with just one finger.” People play music in different ways, so they should practice rhythms in different ways to get better.
This app is not a good tool for learning music, there’s no variety to it, but may be a way to pass the time if you don’t mind the monotony or the robot voice.

Liking this a lot so far

I love using this app to relax and get in the mood to practice my music. It would be great if the metronome and rhythm tone volumes could be adjusted. The metronome clicks seems so much louder than the faint little toms. (See update)
Contrary to some of the other user’s complaints, I like that there is no count in. It’s hard, but I feel like the rhythm sinks in better. Update: The huge improvement you just made is great. Now the metronome doesn’t drown out my pattern and I can see what I’m doing. Thanks!
Update:Reading exercises now come quickly after repetition exercises so the lessons really teach how to read. Turning into such a great app!
