I've been looking around for a sight reading app. I found this rather excellent iPad app and it has helped a lot. I'd really like an app that allows me to practice using my instrument instead of an on screen keyboard (that will preferably tell me when I've gone wrong).

I've done a lot of searching, but I haven't found any apps that actually listen to your instrument.

I found this related question, but the answers were mainly for desktop software. I need something that will run on one of my tablets (IOS or Android).

Note, this question was originally asked on Musical Practice & Performance and someone suggested that I ask on Software Recommendations instead.

Check out 'Pitch' on the apple app store: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/id989140910?mt=8&ign-mpt=uo=6

It shows random notes and listens for the note you play. You get a point for each right note. Here is the website: http://www.practicemakesperfect.education

You can change clef and key signatures with an in app purchase.

Hope this helps.
