Karajan Music and Ear Trainer is a great app. Price is the only barrier here. For $14.99, the app is overpriced. The essential app, Nota, offers a better bang for the buck and includes some features not found in this more expensive alternative. Karajan does offer a free app for beginners. The paid app includes training on intervals, chords, scales, pitch, and tempo. We would have loved to see even more training modules included for the price. We love the app, but the price simply is too high. Karajan Music and Ear Trainer is a great alternative to Nota for those that can afford it.
