app review - chromatik

Hello! Today I've got an app review/showcase for you all. I love discovering new and useful apps and then sharing them with you!

Today's app is called Chromatik. It's perfect for anyone who plays and instrument or likes to sing (with sheet music).

When you first open the app, you can choose from a wide variety of instruments to get sheet music for. You can go back and switch instruments later on if you want to. Once you specify your instrument you have access to the free sheet music. The song collection is always changing and the music (each song is available for a limited amount of time) ranges from old classics to brand new hits.

When you click on a song, you can access the sheet music, listen to other people's performances, watch a YouTube video of the original song, or record your own performances.

From the menu you can access a metronome and a tuner. The metronome allows you to tap the speed of the beat that you need and select which notes (whole notes, half notes, quarter notes, etc.) you want the metronome to count. The tuner rotates to display which note is being played and how far away you are from being in tune. Both tools are must-haves for musicians and both have a clean, simple design.

Other features in the menu include a place to view your recordings and sharing options to show the app to your friends.

I love this app and use it frequently when I'm practicing the violin. Let me know if you try it out and what your thoughts are!

Thanks for reading!
