Reviews of Better Ears Beginner

  • Crashes after buying add-on

    Purchased the full version through the beginner app. But it keeps crashing
  • Free beginner version is pretty good.

    Some features of full app are of course not available but you could spend quite a few hours here. Emphasis is on learning not on being flashy, which I appreciate. One minor complaint is that the beginner level dictation training uses intervals that are not included in interval training in this app but other free apps will give you that training. I would gladly pay a one time upgrade fee for the full app when I the only errors I make in the beginner app are typos. If the full app requires a monthly license fee then I would probably check out competing apps.
  • Better ear

    Instead of playing angry birds or Pokémon go why don’t you play a game that actually has benefits with any instrument you play. Maybe you’re even a Whistler, don’t annoy people by whistling off key. Use better ear, we’ll all thank you.
