“There are a number of ear training apps available for the iPhone, but InTune has actual science to back it up.”
InTune is an outgrowth of 25 years of intonation research by Daniel Kazez, cellist and professor of music at Wittenberg University. The concept began as a method to test pitch discrimination, the ability to differentiate pitches that are close together. But then in a research study, Dr. Kazez discovered that students’ listening improved the more often they played – at triple the rate of those who did not.

“Very easy to use…a fun and useful addition to your practice toolbox.” — Horn World
“Musical perfectionists and sound geeks beware: this game could become an obsession… It will absolutely help you develop a more discerning ear.” — Voice Council Magazine
We’re always improving InTune! Please send your comments and requests to firstname.lastname@example.org. Wondering what is a “good score”? It varies, based on music experience and age, but first-time users often score under 50% of a half step, or under 20% if they have music experience. With repeated use, scores improve substantially. Those with music experience may reach 1% of a half step, or even better.
What's New in Version 3.0.1
We are pleased to introduce a completely redesigned InTune, plus we’ve fixed a few small bugs. We hope you will enjoy playing and improving your ear!
Great for developing tone sensitivity
I enjoy this app and find it helps develop pitch sensitivity. Recent updates have made it more enjoyable because there is less chance of missing due to impulsively hitting the wrong button, and you can also tell how many times you have missed (the previous version required you to track misses in your head).
My one complaint is that you can't save your personal best for improvement purposes.
All in all it is a great app, and fun to challenge friends with.
Great app for music teaching!
I have had fun exposing this app to my students, and trying it for myself! I use it for private or group string lessons, and I have noticed that the students are really paying more attention to pitch as a result. The only thing that I would like to see is an option to replay the two tones. I would highly recommend to all music teachers who are trying to help their kids develop discriminating ears, and for all music students who are trying to improve on intonation!
Great app! Needs improvement.
I recently switched back to Trumpet from French Horn, and I have a very good ear when it comes to tone. I think this is a great app for improving your tone, but I solely feel the sound of the tone is a bit annoying and if possible an option for the instrument making the tone could be implemented. I don't know if I think this because I'm a trumpet player or if I'm selfish but this is my opinion. I hope you take my suggestions into consideration, thank you.
