What our users says:
The new update is a game changer. This is the most comprehensive ear trainer on the store in terms of quantity of drills, statistics keeping, and breadth of topics covered. I'm a professional classical musician and I use this every day on my commute. Now that they addressed the only features that were lacking it is a must-buy. Well done developers!
***** Must Have!!!
This is the best Ear Trainer of all I tried in appstore, everything works just perfectly. If you are interested in improving your musical hearing you must have it.
***** Great little ear training app, exactly what I needed, at a very good price.
***** I love those chord progressions
I was hoping that someone would make an ear training app that did chord progression but I didn't think anyone would, then you did,
**** I'm in my second third semester as a music major and I have to say, this is a great app for any music major, or anyone looking for ear training. I like that I'm able to switch between different instruments, it makes hearing the notes on the instrument you're use to a bit easier for me.
**** Excellent outil
J'ai testé des nombreux programmes d'entraînement et de reconnaissance musicale sur iPhone et celui-ci est de loin le plus complet et le plus intéressant.
***** Complimenti! Grande versatilità e facilità d'uso. Ottima per principianti, ma anche per chi vuole approfondire la conoscenza dell'armonia. La uso sempre con i miei allievi.

Special Thanks to Peter Andreev, René Reiter and Benjamin Gras for feedback and ideas.
I was really excited to download this program and was enjoying the process till it came to trying to hear the difference between a minor, or major 3rd on iPhone speakers. I get the impression that the app designers are enjoying the frustration they are inflicting. Not only do you have to try and hear a half step difference between the intervals 3-4 octaves apart, they seem to make most of the exercises "colored" by making the major chords end on black keys sounding dark, and minor ones sound more major by the notes they chose, and there's no way to get better at it. I breezed thru most of the other exercises, but this one I'm actually getting worse results with every run thru. It's all I can do to not smash my phone. Also, nothing very fun about the app. I thought there would be some game play. Not. Very cut and dry.
I've moved beyond identifying two notes at a time and I'm glad to have the melody feature. I'd like to see an option to have the delete button available the first time. As soon as I know I hit a wrong note, I have to finish out the melody incorrectly, and then after clicking retry I have to delete each note one at a time. That's very cumbersome. Also I was hoping that chord progression recognition would be more involved. This is more about giving suggestions than a review. As an app this will be very useful to anyone who buys it. I'd give it 5 stars if these issues were addressed.
One of my favorite apps
I use this app every single day, and my ability to hear pitch relationships has gotten much stronger. It's not a "game," but it is a lot of fun, like any well made tool. I don't know of another ear training app that does chord progressions. I always look forward to their updates, because they sometimes come with new lessons. Maybe some tutorials to explain some of the theory behind the lessons would be interesting and helpful. But if you are already studying music, and using this as a supplement to hone your skills, this is perfect.
