Seems like there are lots of ear training apps for mobile devices these days. E.g, Functional Ear Trainer. Anyone have a favorite?

This is meant to supplement learning tunes and licks by ear and also learning piano, not as a substitute, thanks.

Here, so to speak, are three ear-training apps/courses that get good reviews:
1. Ear-training course on Jazzadvice.com. (Expensive).
2. Earmaster (recommended by Berklee; longtime computer program, now an app, too).
3. Functional Ear Trainer app.

Again, no substitute for careful listening, working on piano or guitar, etc. But these methods seem to hold promise of getting at the sounds in a useful, different way.

iwasdoingallright is the best ear training app I've used yet. Thanks for this tip, andre251!

That looks like a great app too. The reason that I like iwasdoingallright is that I can immerse myself in a particular interval or chord while at work and let it ingrain in my memory. For example, I can pick an ascending major triad in first inversion and let it play in all keys for an hour while I'm doing something else. My brain hears it and learns it while I'm doing my science stuff. The Harmony Cloud looks like a great way to test skills learned from the other app. For just $10, it looks worthwhile. Thanks!

“Iwasdoingalright” was good as far as i remember but recently i am using Harmony Cloud app by stefon Harris, only avaliable for IOS.
