Buggy, But Great Otherwise

If there weren't some very disruptive and consistent glitches, I'd give this app 5 stars. Great for ear training and drilling basic theory - helped me study for a college theory placement exam. One of the worst bugs is that in the visual drills (chord ID, note ID, key signature ID etc), the previous set of accidentals and/or notes will remain on the staff long after the question has been answered correctly, making all future questions anywhere from infuriatingly confusing to downright illegible. Also, the chord ear-training exercise thinks a basic major 6th chord is a minor 7th for some reason (and major 6th is not a chooseable option in the exercise) . Fix those problems, and it's a five-star app.

Great For Training but could be better

I'm an audio engineer brushing up on training my musical ear and knowledge. This is really nitpicky but I listen to the ear training exercises with Sennheiser HD 380s and the samples are low quality and could be fixed my putting a simple high pass filter on them (some basic EQ).
I think that it would be very beneficial to have an exercise where you have to click or select all of the notes within a single key such as asking
Q: D Dorian
A: D, E, F, G, A, B, C, D

A cool format is have the prompted scale above in your "question section" with a corresponding scale below without any accidentals (no key signature I would assume for this exercise) and below list the musical alphabet (linear with the root starting on the left) with #s above each letter and bs below each letter (once an accidental is clicked the corresponding staff above places the accidental in the scale so to have a visual representation) the student would have to correct the scale by adding missing accidentals.

Good for training purposes

I love this app because I can take it on the go. I think this is really good for all musicians that want to train. I personally use this on my iPad, iPhone to memorize key signatures, intervals, and more. I think this app is worth the money if you intend to use it often because it will help a lot.
