Ratings and Reviews
Yousician for Ukulele
Love this app. I got a Ukulele just after Christmas and I needed help! Got this as a free app and kept getting asked to upgrade. I found the free app frustrating as I was just getting started and it would say 'come back tomorrow'. Grrr. So I upgraded to the free for 2 weeks one instrument app. I wish it would take you seamlessly through it. I found I wasn't sure where I was or whether I had gone on too soon. Then it started breaking up just when I was hitting the notes correctly in a song. Grrr again. Frustrating. It may have been my iPad, so I tried my iPhone and although the screen is smaller it isn't buffering. I have set an alarm the day before the 2 free weeks are up. I can't afford £100 for a year. I don't want them to take my dosh automatically unless I really can't operate without Yousician. We will see. So far? I can't wait to get home from work and get on it!
Effective if flawed
It works well for motivating and is definitely one of the most useful practice tools I’ve seen. All in all a great tool well worth giving a shot.
It does have some ISSUES:
It doesn’t penalise for the addition of incorrect extra notes like when you hit an extra note in piano or fail to mute a string on guitar
The built in lesson sometimes gives you overly basic material particularly in the explore section
On the piano version (I haven’t experienced it on the guitar section) the timing can be unforgiving leading you to feel that you hit a note it said you didn’t.
Early piano course is too slow having never played a piano before I was getting perfect scores every time until it made me do 4 skill level tests
You don’t really learn any songs from this as odd as it sounds. The fact it gives you the music in a written form allows you to forget it afterward
It could do to have more known music but I understand it a royalties issue there
Gamification is effective and not too pandering
Layout is simple and intuitive allowing ease of learning
Reminders everyday help motivate
Slow building on what you’ve learned builds confidence well keeping you in a work zone throughout.
The practice mode doesn’t remove notes to make it easier like some similar things do meaning there is no confusion as the tempo picks up
It annoyed me within ten minutes
I thought I’d give this app a go. Having signed away my life to create an account I eventually arrived at the tutorials. Whilst I’d hesitate to call myself a guitarist I have owned a couple of instruments for a few decades so I wasn’t overjoyed to have to go through ‘how to pluck a string’ before I could progress.
Having successfully plucked a string I was hopeful of moving on yet every attempt at progress was blocked by a pop-up offering a free 14 days, followed by eleven quid a month subscription.
Okay, we’ve all got to make a living but that applies to me as well. Some months I simply might not have the time to use my eleven quids-worth.
Had it been £20 - £30 a module, fine. I could study at my leisure. So, whilst the content may have been satisfactory from my brief experience I couldn’t say. If you want punters to cough-up to use the full features, fine but the impression I got was that the developers desire for dosh is stronger than any notion of providing a service.
