This app includes the following ear training exercises:
Intervals: In this exercise, you will hear two notes in sequence. Your goal is to identify the interval between the two notes.
Chords: In this exercise, you will hear a chord. Your goal is to identify the type of chord that you heard.
Scales: In this exercise, you will hear a scale. Your goal is to identify the name of the scale that you heard.
Chord Progressions: In this exercise, you will hear a chord progression. Your goal is to identify each chord that you heard.
Perfect Pitch: In this exercise, you will hear a single note. Your goal is to identify the name of the note.
Scale Degrees (functional): In this exercise, you will hear a short chord progression followed by a single note. You must identify the scale degree of that note relative to the key established by the chord progression. This is also known as "functional ear training".
Intervals in Context (functional): This exercise combines the "Intervals" and "Scale Degrees" exercises. In this exercise, you will hear a short chord progression followed by two notes. You must identify the major scale degrees of the two notes relative to the key established by the chord progression as well as the interval between the two notes.

Ratings and Reviews
Good if it works
I reported the bugs to the developer but he hasn’t responded. If your iPhone silent switch is on you hear no sound. That in itself is ok once you figure it out, but the real bug is more than half the time you hear no sound at all or it is delayed by 10 seconds or more. The windows app on my laptop works great but until these app is fixed it’s not too useful. Please fix it and it will be great.
Also, a usability issue- the Hear Next buttons should be at the bottom. Otherwise your finger has to move back and forth covering the choices. Placement of buttons should always be designed to minimize crossings and movements.
Best eartraining app (especially for chord progressions)
So I use their website free online but I wanted something on my phone that I could use when I travel and don’t have internet//a computer.
I was reluctant to pay (haha) because it’s free online but it’s totally worth it... specifically for the chord progression ear training... which has been almost impossible for me to find, and when I have it’s been mediocre at best.
This app is the best one I have yet to find, so I will say worth the purchase. It looks like the people who gave bad rating either had a version with a bug or didn’t know how to get the sound working. I first looked at the price and the ratings (before investigating why the 1 star.. which seems to be a nonissue now) and was reluctant to purchase the app, but I’m happy with it so far- will update if that changes. :)
But I personally would recommend the app if you are a serious musician and want to work on your ear training- SPECIFICALLY harmonic ear training aka chord progressions (as there are plenty of apps for interval training etc). Thanks a lot for the app!!! :)
Please fix the static!
Whenever the app plays a note, I hear static, and sometimes it won’t even play the note when I ask it to. It would be fine if it worked properly, but the static ruins the experience and makes it harder to focus on the sound!
