* More scale types! Now you can practice modes, whole tone scales, and more by enabling new types in the settings screen
* Practice chords and arpeggios too! By using the "flip" icon in the top right, you can enter chords mode, with its own Settings screen to customize which chords are shown separately from scales
* Enhance your practicing with a drone and metronome! Listen to tonic of the current scale you're practicing (transposable for instruments that need it), and keep time with a built-in metronome rather than juggling multiple apps or devices. [In-App Purchase]
* Learn more about the scales you're practicing! By hitting the "i" button on the main screen, you can see the key signature and relative scale of certain scales as you practice. [In-App Purchase]
* Set a minimum for sharps and flats! Rather than disabling scales with a lower sharp and flat count individually, you can filter them out in bulk through the new settings menu

Ratings and Reviews
I love it!, BUT
I would love to see you add (Church) Modes into the mix. This app has helped me master the scales it provides by using for practice for at Least 30 minutes a day. If modes were added, that would be INCREDIBLE. Please, oh please make this happen.
Developer Response ,
Hi Rabb1t34, thanks for reviewing the app! I've got good news for you, the current version of the app now has all 7 modes, plus a ton more features! If you've not updated yet, give it a shot, I'm sure you'll like it :)
One of the best practice tools to hit the market!
This app is an incredibly diverse and effective tool for practicing scales. The new features have taken it to a whole new level. I recommend this app to every single one of my students, from beginners to college level music majors. It is also particularly useful as a tool during lessons to help test students on their scales. With the addition of the built-in drone and metronome, this app has now become a staple in my own warm up routine, shaving time off time in my scale practice and making drone work much easier! Be sure your phone is not set to silent/vibrate when using drone/metronome.
One of the highlights of my practice time!
This app has changed the way that I look at practicing scales. I used to have a really difficult time and always dreaded my practice. I would also get into the habit of just playing them in order, which is never now they were expected to be performed in my juries. Carson’s app makes scales a challenging and exciting part of practice time! I will definitely be having my students use this app!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
