The sound quality is very low. The app runs very slow, and the navigation is not simple. I don’t buy apps very often, and I am disappointed that I paid for this one.
By John Gabriel Arends

Mostly good

For the most part I think this app is fun and helpful, but I’m a little confused sometimes when I’m working with modes and the 5 chord ends up being lower than the 1? Additionally I paid for the add on to get more scales and it doesn’t actually let you study modes in different scales such as harmonic minor. Over all still very good, definitely some room for improvement though in my opinion.

As a fairly new student of music theory this app is a must for me. I am a very visual learner and the ability to pull up practically any scale or mode and immediately see the notes and chords, along with the key signature is fantastic. The song writing function is also very cool and fun.

Where has this app been all my life? Easy to use. Easy to understand. So worth it.
By Biasedreview

I’m hooked

Just a beginner at the guitar, so my opinion may not hold much weight to those with years of experience, but for those who are on the path to a better understanding, getting to know TONALY will benefit the serious minded.

Wonderful app and super prompt response from Developer to address emerging issues

This app has become a staple for me and I am impressed by Christian‘s attention to detail and user satisfaction. I anticipate great things to come within this app as well. Bravo and thanks for such a thoughtful and useful tool!

PERFECT for producers (1 idea!)

awesome app for anyone who wants to make music on the go or even producers like myself. Would love to see a feature where u can export the chords in a midi file so you can drag and drop them into DAW’s like ableton or fruity loops.
By Jackey Baxter

If you play, get this app!

This app is packed full of great information and useful features . Besides the circle of fifths, the chord names and diagrams are sweet and it has a righty or lefty feature. Recommend!!

Cool app, but it freezes

I just installed the app and have been working with it. It has cool features but it also tends to freeze. I’m not really that satisfied with it because of that.
By Tmotion

Limited time signatures

I JUST purchased it and it’s cool but I’m immensely disappointed that there isn’t more customization of the time signatures. Only standard ones are available.
