To aid your progression you can compare the different options after answering. (You can even play the virtual piano if you like!)

As you progress through the exercises, statistics are collected so that you can see your progress.

The questions in the exercises are randomly generated so you can do them over and over again as many times as you like to continue to hone your skills.

*****
The new update is a game changer. This is the most comprehensive ear trainer on the store in terms of quantity of drills, statistics keeping, and breadth of topics covered. I'm a professional classical musician and I use this every day on my commute. Now that they addressed the only features that were lacking it is a must-buy. Well done developers!
----------
***** Must Have!!!
This is the best Ear Trainer of all I tried in appstore, everything works just perfectly. If you are interested in improving your musical hearing you must have it.
----------
***** Great little ear training app, exactly what I needed, at a very good price.
--------
***** I love those chord progressions
I was hoping that someone would make an ear training app that did chord progression but I didn't think anyone would, then you did,
--------
**** I'm in my second third semester as a music major and I have to say, this is a great app for any music major, or anyone looking for ear training. I like that I'm able to switch between different instruments, it makes hearing the notes on the instrument you're use to a bit easier for me.

**** Excellent outil
J'ai testé des nombreux programmes d'entraînement et de reconnaissance musicale sur iPhone et celui-ci est de loin le plus complet et le plus intéressant.
-------
***** Complimenti! Grande versatilità e facilità d'uso. Ottima per principianti, ma anche per chi vuole approfondire la conoscenza dell'armonia. La uso sempre con i miei allievi.
