“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!
An awesome ear-training app
This is a great tool for improving one's ear.
Some things that would make it even more helpful:
A) being able to listen again to a pair of tones before choosing higher or lower (useful if the dog barked at the exact moment the app played them)
B) an option to skip past the some of the larger, easier intervals. I tend to run aground discerning a 2% difference between tones. I think it would be great to have an option to start at, say, a 5% difference, instead of always going back to the 100% difference.
Great to use in the classroom
As a middle school band director, teaching students to have an ear for intonation and tuning is important. My students love to use the app as a game - the contest is to see which class can score the highest. I love to see them have fun while learning to develop an ear for intonation. Their only concern, so also mine, is the tone generation can be somewhat uncomfortable when the whole class is listening. The team that has created this app should be commended for bringing such a great app to the public, and should make more!
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.
