The app is great at what it does but it’s limited in scope. I’m a weak sight-reader but had no problem with “advanced” mode on this app, suggesting that there’s a lot more room to grow. I think it should include a feature for reading a note against a key signature, rather than just plain accidentals. It doesn’t seem to keep track of your strengths and weaknesses — I got quizzed on the exact same note three times in a row at one point. It would also be nice if it incorporated some “supermemo”-style tracking to quiz you more on the notes you miss and less on the notes you know.
Should be better
I'm disappointed that this app contains some glaring bugs right off the bat. It's initially confusing because you're directed to begin by an arrow that points to nothing on the screen. By pressing buttons on opposite side of screen can you actually begin the game. The notes begin to appear well enough but after about ten notes the game sporadically hangs and more than one note appears (If it's quizzing chords that early in the first quiz it should be clearer; but it's not--it's a glitch).
