“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.

We’re always improving InTune! Please send your comments and requests to firstname.lastname@example.org. Wondering what’s 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.
• Fixed a bug that blocked in-app purchase of instruments.
• Added real clarinet, bassoon, oboe, and English horn sounds (available via in-app purchase). More instruments coming soon!
Ratings and Reviews
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 classroom use too!
As a middle school band director I use this app to help my students start listening more carefully to fine differences in pitch. It’s very easy to understand and I like the binary choice between higher and lower. Since it resets each time to easier levels, the kids who got lost when we made it to the really fine distinctions are able to rejoin us. InTune really helps them start paying closer attention to pitch.
