Music Mastery: Basic Ear Training

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Music Mastery: Basic Ear Training is an app designed for serious musicians who want to develop their ear. Being able to identify intervals and chords is key to translating the music in your head to your compositions or instrument of choice. This app will let you take the first lesson of each unit. If you decide you want further lessons, you can purchase the full unit using in-app purchasing.
Much more than an audio flash card app, Music Mastery: Ear Training teaches you to identify the various sounds in the same way you learned to read sheet music. A few sounds at a time, with tests along the way to make sure you've got it right before moving on.
After you've learned the types of chords, scales, etc. you will be ready to try and pick them out by note name. Music Mastery has all of the chords, scales, and arpeggios in all 12 of the chromatic notes as well as 49 different pitches from C2 to C6. Some people never develop an ear good enough to differentiate sounds at that level, but with Music Mastery, it won't be because you weren't given the proper tool for the job.
Unlike simple flashcard style apps, Music Mastery allows you to click on an info button during the learning process to bring up information about the current sound. Wonder why there are no major and minor suspended chords? The app will tell you instead of leaving you to guess or seek the answer elsewhere. Wonder why the diminished triad sounds so dark? The app has you covered there as well.
Why wait to become the best musician you can be? This app has all the tools you need to take your compositions to the next level.
What's New in Version 1.1
Fixed a bug that was preventing users from taking a test after purchasing the in-app items.
They don't tell you that you'll have to spend money to access enough material to make the lessons worthwhile. But then why would you? The interface is ugly, and the program is completely lacking in imagination. As a free app, it's not even worth the time it takes to download it.
This free app is very limited. To unlock each additional function, it asks for more money. It is not worth purchasing...
