Ratings and Reviews

Could be MUCH MUCH better, especially for $4.99!!!

Wharbone

I bought this app to write out some basic exercises for myself and my trombone students. Unfortunately it is lacking in several areas (listed below). I probably won't end up using it unless the developers make some big changes. $4.99 down the drain.

1. You can only do quarter notes. NOTHING ELSE. Please update this app to do eighths, sixteenths, triplets, and dotted rhythms.

2. There are no key signatures. Please add them.

3. Accidentals do no carry through the measure. There is no way to hide cautionary accidentals. This is a nightmare to look at if there are many accidentals.

4. The range only goes up to a high B flat. Even the built-in two octave scales have to jump down an octave when they get too high.

5. The range only goes to a low E. That's not usable for bass trombone.

6. Note entry could be much better. I wish I could just tap my finger in the staff and it would enter the according note. Scrolling through the dial is a bit of a pain and time consuming.

7. Actual recorded trombone sounds would be nice instead of the built-in cheesy midi trombone sounds.

8. No print option. It would be nice if there was a print option so I could print out my exercises for students to take home and practice. Most of my students don't have iPads. For the ones who do, I'm not going to ask them to buy an app so I can share the exercises with them. Being able to send a PDF to Dropbox would be another acceptable solution.

Conclusion: For what it offers, this app is way too overpriced. Now that I see how it works firsthand, I would not have even paid .99 cents. It's a good start but needs a lot of improvement. With the changes I listed above it could be a fantastic app and well worth the money. Until the developer makes some drastic changes and updates, save your money.
