Root notes aren’t highlighted

This would be a great app if the root notes on scales were indicated with a different color. I’ve never seen scale charts where they aren’t. Can you add that in an update?

Simple but does the job

Is the review complaining about scales a joke? Em and G *are* the same scale; same notes, just different starting points.

Anyway, the app is nothing fancy but it does exactly what it says without bugs or annoying trendy UX. For $2, it beats flipping through a book or website.

Don't buy it for scales

Bought it because the free scales apps are hard to interpret and the interface here looked good. Picked a g major and an e minor and it showed me the same scale. Two thumbs down Siskel
