I'm a piano teacher of 15 years and have more and more students who want to play chords and improvise. This app is a perfect resource for them. I like it because it's thorough but at the same time very simple.
I am new to piano, familiar with some scales, and chord progressions but this app will really help me to understand and explore various combinations. I pair this app with additional learning material online to help me fully understand the math / science behind the music.
This app is great for understanding scales, chords, chord progressions, and the circle if fifths. I like the easy to use interface. It only includes common scales and chords. I have another app that has tons of complicated and confusing scales that I've never heard of much less can pronounce. I just wanted something to show me the common scales and chords, and this app does it. It also sounds the chord or scale.

A MUST HAVE for musicians
This might be the single most important resource for musicians, especially self taught musicians who learn and play by ear. I don't know how I made it without the tools in this simple yet powerful app but now that I found it I'm opening up my skill set to new and ascended heights. The wealth of scales available is exhaustive and the song feature is an added bonus. I was looking for an option to play a set of notes and it would tell you what chord it is and which inversion. But I find the challenge of discovering the chord on my own to be a powerful learning experience so in a way I'm happy it's not there. Get the full version if you're serious about your musicianship.
Great Tool For Musicians!!
This is a very handy resource for all musicians. Even if you are well versed in music theory, this can be a great tool when you are suffering from writers block. Simply listening to a key in its different modes can easily strike up an idea for a melody or riff. We are the only ones standing in the way of our true potential.
If you want to learn piano this is the app what you need. I don't usually rate apps but this one is perfect. You can see the chord, hear the chord, play it in ascending/descending order and so on. Playing on a real piano while looking at the chords/scales is very helpful. 5 stars, 5 cars, great app.
