July App Share

Wimbledon is in full flow. And if you feel like you’re serving double faults with your music apps then match up with the newest App Share! You’ll be hitting aces in no time with these 3 great apps.

Let us know if you’ve used any of these apps and what you thought of them, plus what you’ve been using recently. Contact us on Facebook or Twitter with your favourites, and visit App Share to see more of ours!

maxresdefaultIsle of Tune (£2.99 on iOS and free on your browser)

Perfect For: Ages 5+.

What is it? Sim City meets music! Isle of Tune is a fantastic app where you are given an empty island to construct roads, houses, lampposts and trees – that form their own unique sequencer! Each item can be assigned its own note or sound, and you then send your car round the track to play the composition.

Why do we love it? It’s just so immersive and addictive across many age groups! With endless possibilities for composition of your own track, and over 200,000 other islands to look through (and compete with) online, it can pull you in for hours.

picture-37StaffWars (99p on iOS, 60p on Android)

Perfect For: Ages 8+.

What is it? StaffWars is a simple game designed to help beginner and intermediate musicians learn and practice the treble, alto and bass clefs. In the mould of classic games like Space Invaders, in StaffWars you are required to quickly identify a note flying across the stave, which your spaceship will then destroy. Three wrong answers and it’s game over!

Why do we love it? Learning without even realising has to be good. And with numerous levels and opportunities to post a high score, the competitive element of this game is enough to draw in many otherwise hesitant music students.

screenshot-pitch-1Sonoptic (£6.99 on iOS)

Perfect For: Ages 11+.

What is it? Sonoptic is designed to paint a unique picture of your musical performance to help you quickly improve and better reach your goals. As a practice tool it provides immediate feedback on your pitch and rhythmic accuracy, phrasing and dynamics and contains nearly 400 melodic exercises across a customisable range of difficulties and genres.

Why do we love it? For the range of help it provides, what is most impressive about Sonoptic is how simple it is! All you need is your device’s microphone function, and you can be getting feedback and improvements in a matter of minutes.
