absolutely terrible

I bought this thinking it would be the end-all-be-all app I'd need for ear training on my iphone. I'm on a 3G, so it's a bit slower than the newer models, but i've used other ear training apps before so i figured this wasn't some crazy 'app powerhouse' that would bring my phone to it's knees like some of the newer games.

I was very wrong.

This app is so crappy that whenever i try chord identification exercises, the sample of the chord playing skips so much that i can barely hear what the chord is. This makes karajan effectively useless for me. I tried resetting my phone even to clear the RAM. nothing. this app is absolutely terrible, much like my title states. I am very disappointed, and am sorry i cannot get my $15 back for this exorbitantly priced debacle.

4/5 stars

My ear is warming up.. .

Great li'l app with lots of resources. Its rote learning, but its all wrapped up in one neat package wherein you can set up your own lessons and training. That said, there seems to be one little glitch (maybe just on my iPod) where the program freezes upon changing the chord selection (to 7th's) in the "difficulty->individual" section. It worked before so hopefully its not a big deal, but I'm sure it'll be fixed in a future update. Happy Training!

absolute garbage

Completely useless piece of garbage. I can't believe I paid 15 bucks for this. The sound is all messed up, the chord function doesn't work.
